Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

"Forget what you think you know about what happens to Luke Skywalker" tells me that it is an original story(i.e. not E. U.) about Luke, Hammill can still be Luke, but not a story that's already been told. This does not suggest a reboot, but a continuation. Besides, if it were a reboot, why would the name it Episode 7, why not just go with Star Wars:... or whatever? If it is a 40 year old Skywalker, then obviously he would be recast, but I have a feeling it's going to be Hammill and the announcement will be huge. I suppose that won't come for a long time.

I can see Luke being the Gandalf of the next new trilogy. Just put him in a brown Jedi robe and have him grow a beard.

Now they're saying it'll be about Luke Skywalker "in his 30s or 40s." I say it'll skew more towards 30 or so. This still needs to be a youth-appeal franchise and to teenagers anyone over 35 is geriatric.
Skywalking, the book in question and its author is a very unreliable source

Thought for today: did Disney by Lucasfilm because PotC is running out of steam? Things have been quiet on that front.

The 4th movie made an insane amount of money. Creatively Star Wars died 30 years ago, yet we are gettingmore because they make money!

If you're trying to tell me the rumor I spoke of never happened, you really don't.
I didn't say the rumor didn't happen, I said that you got the nature of the rumor reversed. The books were rumored to be based on Lucas' notes for 7-9, which he had decided not to make.

The story notes supposedly spawned the books, not the other way around as you would have it.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

This is frikken exciting. I'm particularly excited that the story is coming from Lucas' outlines without him writing/directing. Lets be honest, Lucas himself acknowledges that he hates the actual screenwriting process. This is how the prequels should have been done from the beginning.

May I suggest that Brad Bird should be the director?

Same thing. But the rumor I described was around at the time, despite the fact that you were unaware of it. Whatever you're talking about is something else entirely.

Could Kevin Sorbo play Luke if Hamil declines?

It's been one day and I've already had to defend this development to 5 people IRL.

Wouldn't it be marvellous if they re-released the first trilogy in the original, theatrical format without any of the stupid stuff Lucas added later?

Yes, that would be very awesome, but I doubt that will happen.

Actually, I think it's highly likely it WILL happen.

I agree, I can easily see Hammil in this movie in a sort of passing the torch role like Nimoy in Trek XI.

Maybe Luke will be the big bad of the three films?
