Oh, I got the Mon Mothma reference too. Heck, I own her action figures.
A little late to the party but I for one am excited for Abrams Star Wars.
Finally something new after 10 years of non stop clone wars. Here's hoping for a return to classic Star Wars.
They should have taken MORE time on the idiotic scripts and gotten them into more entertaining shape than what we saw on screen.
You don't have that option in TV, of course.
In case I confused anyone, what I meant was having the Falcon but with different crew over time--an anthology.
Different Doctors, same Tardis
Do for the Falcon what Spielberg did for ponies in War Horse, that kind of thing--make the Falcon seem even more mythic.
Carrie would look best in Mothma's Moo-moo anyway...
I was just thinking today about Harrison Ford being in Abrams' new Star Wars film...
...Do you think Callista Flockhart could play Han's daughter?
Star Wars with lens flares. I am curious how it will look like.
There are already some jokes about it.
Ah, lens flare? Witty and fresh.
Princess Leia returns.
And in far less likely news, The Daily Fail reports that a battle scene will be filmed behind a shopping centre in Kent. From the same people who quoted Youtube comments in an article as proof that Cumberbatch is playing Khan in Into Darkness.
Though no surprise whatsoever, the Fisher story is welcome news. I mean, almost everybody with a pulse figured that the original Big Three (or at least Hamill and Fisher) would sign on to the new Trilogy but it's nice to see that the chess pieces are slowly coming together on the big board.
The real interest and questions will come when we get word of supporting actors and actresses. The original Trilogy didn't really feature many top-list actors aside from Guinness and Cushing (Ian McDiarmid hadn't yet achieved Epic status at the time Jedi was filmed)....it'll be interesting to see if the producers can nail down any A-list talent for the new films without taking focus and attention away from the classic and central characters.
How could they possibly have a script ready by this summer to begin filming?
Edited to add: related to Fisher, Fords, and Hamill's return I'm kind of surrised to hear that because I'd imagine they'd want huge amounts of cash just to make an apperance.
In the mind of Disney executives would it be worth the investment?
I still want to see Chris Pine as a young Han Solo in the rumoured spin-off movie, just to watch heads explode.
As to the "big three", I think only Ford could demand insane money and I think he'd be more interested in approving the script than a ridiculous payoff (just an impression formed from the few interviews I've seen of him with Charlie Rose--not much to go on, I know, but then again I'm only a very casual Wars fan).
I am in full support of Abrams doing Star Wars. I really don't see an issue, but I do respect that there's always been a lot of loyalty between fans of either franchise. I never understood the desire to choose one over the other personally. I love Star Trek and I love Star Wars. I'm an anomaly I guess, because I enjoyed the prequels as well. Even Jar Jar, but I see Jar Jar differently through the eyes of my 3 year old son. He looooooves Jar Jar. If he deems something cool, I support it!
I wasn't sure about Abrams at first doing Trek, but when I saw the movie here in DC at the Uptown on opening night, it was magic. The crowd was full of fans, and it was a great great evening. I trust him with Star Wars too.
I guess this could happen. Fisher says she will be back as Leia, Hamil has been spoken to about Skywalker, and Ford may return as Solo. In any case, the article below says Lucas will have any of the three original characters written out if the actor doesn't want to do it rather than recast the character.
For what it's worth, Fisher is 56, Hamil is 61, and Ford is 70.
Link to story:
A handful of folks on this board will hate anything J.J. Abrams makes no matter what it is, so don't pay any attention to them. I have no reason to doubt that he'll do a serviceable or even great job with Episode VII and until I have a reason I'm not going to bad mouth the guy like he's some double-dipping traitor who cares about nothing but flashy action.
My advice to anyone who pays too much attention to the J.J. haters: drop those zeroes and get with the heroes.
That's what's up. Your avatar is dope.
Thanks. Carl Spock is the man.
Is the double meaning in the above intentional?
That's because there are many deeply unfunny nerds on the Internet.
That's confidential. Depending on the size and quality of the bribe.
