They could always use the cheesy newreel intros that the Clone War tv series does for the standalone films.

Sterling Archer (in cheesy newsreel voice): Ring Ring, hello? Hi, it's the 1930s! Can we have our words and clothes and shitty airplane back? And hey, watch out for that Adolph Hitler. He's a bad egg!

I don't see why they wouldn't use the crawls in the spin-offs. They could still use them establish exactly when and where in the saga they take place.

Star Wars without:

Would be like Baseball without the national anthem.

So, that's how you feel about The Clone Wars? No title crawl with these.

They present it in the form of a quick narrated visual montage, but it's essentially the same thing.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

The Season 5 finale of The Clone Wars aired this morning on Cartoon Network and while most fans are convinced the show will get greenlit for a Season 6 there are still some who feel that the plug will get pulled due to recent declining ratings and interest in the series as well as the Disney takeover.

Lucas once said his main goals with the animated show were to tell some great stories and make 100 episodes, and since he's accomplished both over the last five years it really won't be any shock to many fans if Lucasfilm and CN come to some sort of agreement to cease production. That said, there are still quite a few loose story ends to tie up as well as the act of connecting the series to the events of Episode III to provide closure so most of us are predicting we'll get one more season and that'll be all she wrote.

Season 6 should be titled "Battle Royale".

Carrie Fisher confirms her return as Leia:

Disney is going to continue the Star Wars saga, producing movies set to hit theaters starting in 2015. Can you confirm whether you’ll reprise the role of Princess Leia?
Yes.


What do you think Princess Leia is like today?
Elderly. She’s in an intergalactic old folks’ home [laughs].
I just think she would be just like she was before, only slower and less inclined to be up for the big battle.

Carrie Fisher is returning to Star Wars... but who is she going to play? Didn't Jabba the Hutt die in Return of the Jedi?

Classy. I know she's not an old 19-year-old codger anymore, but still....

Precisely.. it's been more than 30 yeas and people change. I'm really looking forward to these movies now that the original crew is back together and am really curious how they will write them given the age.

They will of course not run down a unit of Stormtroopers (or maybe Han will.. he never struck me as a guy who'd let something like age keep him from doing impulsive stuff) or swing across chasms by hanging onto a cable.

The entire movie will depend on the casting of the new generation who'll take up the action part and i really hope they get some good ones.. Jennifer Lawrence for Jaina Solo!

One thing that really puts me in a good mood is that Lucas will be nowhere near the script or the director's chair.. i love and respect him for starting the whole universe and having a huge imagination but he's really not a good writer and director.

So let's keep our fingers crossed, forget the second trilogy and just cheer as loudly as we can when the crawl begins!

Let's hope we don't get a Jaina Solo this time.
