Re: Star Wars Episode VII Discussion, News, Interviews (12/18/2015)

Some histrionic moron on one of the sites reporting the Episode VII news posted something along the lines of "this why I want George Lucas to die. Star Wars movies come out in May and are for summer, not Christmas!"

I've expressed my own share of frustration with George Lucas and his creative and directorial choices in recent years and the man's light-years from perfect, but when you claim to be a fan and want him TO DIE because of things like a Disney- and Kathleen Kennedy-directed release date that likely had very little if nothing to do with George, then you are an embarassment to the fanbase and an example of why human beings need to maintain at least some basic touch with reality and common sense when it comes to being a sci-fi/fantasy fan.

If going to see a movie seven months later than you wanted to (and after an entire 10-year wait since the last film in the series) makes you wish death on a man who no longer wields the control over his creation that he once did, then you need to buy a first-class ticket out of Dicksville and stop taking a fictional universe that seriously.

While it would've been nice to see the May Release tradition continued, December's not a bad time to release a blockbuster movie like this, and it does have precedent, as the original Star Wars had been scheduled to be released in December of '76 before the production problems pushed its release back to May of '77.

Not counting the TCW film, which knocks it down to 7...

Re: Star Wars Episode VII Discussion, News, Interviews (12/18/2015)

I meant, of course, live-action Episodes, but yeah - the TCW film is considered canon (but many fans consider it almost a form of blasphemy to include it with Episodes I through VI ). Still, whether seven or ten years it'd be the second-longest wait between two theatrical Star Wars movies after the long gap from Jedi to Phantom.

It's months old by now, but how many here have seen this?

It goes to show how good an actor Harrison is. He got through that entire bit without cracking up and breaking character. I would have started smiling and laughing as soon as the guy in the Wookiee costume stood up.

I saw that! If it's one of the actual Artoo props that will be used in the film it looks like he's been cleaned and polished up quite a bit in the several decades since JEDI. That's the cleanest he's looked since Episode I.
