Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

No Star Wars film has ever faced a release delay because of production timing or related issues. Disney and Lucas will push to get Episode VII out on time in May of 2015 as originally announced. If that means Abrams has to pawn off some of his other producing and directing duties on other films to other people then so be it.

If Abrams puts references to the two Force Unleashed games in the new film I'll give him a kidney. Even if he doesn't need it.
Anything less than a faithful adaptation of Timothy Zahn's Thrawn trilogy containing references to the Holiday Special, the Droids cartoon series, Caravan of Courage and Star Tours will confirm to me that Abrams is a total fucking talentless hack.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

There's got to be wiggle room. I also noticed in the linked story that another "Avengers" movie is slated to be released in 2015. Might be Disney would want to evaluate whether or not its "Star Wars" movie would be in any competition with its "Avengers" movie.

A "Star Wars" movie and an "Avengers" movie in the same year. That could be a billion dollar year for Disney, easy. Maybe Donald Duck will finally have enough money to buy some pants.

Is this where Paramount gets pissy and replaces Abrams with Brett Ratner for Star Trek 3?

So, let me get this straight. If SWVII doesn't reference the Holiday Special, then Abrams is a talentless hack?!?

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

I say we petition Disney and Lucasfilm to put remastered stock footage of Bea Arthur's Ackmena into the new movie just to give certain fans complete meltdowns.

I believe, Captain, this is the illogical human phenomenon known as "sarcasm." Also filed under, "it was a fucking joke."

While I was taking the piss, I do genuinely think that Timothy Zahn's sequel trilogy novels hold up excellently and Abrams would do well to adapt them.

I think what muddled that joke was the fact that there are more than a few fans out there completely insistent about the Thrawn trilogy being adapted. (I'm not one of those, though.)

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

Neither am I. I don't mind elements and species from the Thrawn trilogy being used in new film scripts or even Thrawn himself as a supporting character, but don't follow the storyline of the books. Create new situations involving Thrawn if you're going to use him.

Well, that would contradict the EU, which I think should be respected even if most fans are illiterate and too lazy to follow it. Contradicting the Thrawn trilogy would be a pretty dumb way of trying to win fans over. It's as beloved as the original trilogy, even by those that don't like Star Wars books.
