    Yeah, I think movie blogs can safely lie about having an inside scoop about Fassbender being cast in any movie. There's like 50% chance it'd be true. :lol:

    Yeah, a short cammeo. A Mos Eisley hooker, they say.

    Quod erat demonstrandum.

    Not counting Grey's Anatomy and The Big Bang Theory.

    Don't know about GA, but the latter was barely even a guest appearance. More like a syfy celeb cammeo, like LaVar Burton in the last one.

    Firefly, The 4400, TSCC, Dollhouse, The Cape... Doesn't look good for Alphas either. Talk about a track record. :lol:

    She and Lindsay Lohan as a pair of aging hookers who "entertained the troops" during the "Empire years."

    Bad news, everyone... :(

    Vulture: Arndt's treatment features a "Son of Jar Jar and Chewbacca" sidekick

    Highly-placed sources within Lucasfilm are telling Vulture that Michael Ardnt's "Sequel Trilogy" treatment features a wacky child sidekick-type character who's the love child of Jar Jar Binks and Chewbacca. The "Gungie" hybrid, carried to term by Chewbacca's sister-in-law, was purportedly added at the request of senior consultant George Lucas, in order to "help the sidekick character motifs of the three trilogies rhyme". These same sources also tell us that, as a highly personal request that is one of Lucas' few contributions to the new trilogy, franchise steward Kathleen Kennedy is likely to be be "fiercely protective" of the character in future consultations with Lucasfilm's new Disney overlords.

    Humor. It is a difficult concept.

    We all know it's a joke. The question: is it funny?

    No.

    But hey if Spielberg directed it the sidekick would be sporting a backwards baseball cap. Things can always be worse.

    Who would have an extensive backstory developed in the EU.

    Is it wrong that I actually like this idea?

    So if pre-production has started, it must mean that concept artists are busy at work on Episode VII right now. Who are these people? Ryan Church? Ian McCaig? Warren Fu? Feng Zhu? Who's schedule has been totally cleared for some undisclosed project?

    YES!

    Seriously, if that's true this idea alone should be enough to kick Lucas out the door and have a standing order at Lucas Film to ignore everything he suggests from now on.
    I don't have problem with a comedic sidekick as long as it's not an annoying crap character like Jar Jar, after three movies the damn gungans should never appear again, they're awful. And it's not enough that they might be back, Lucas wants to add their stink to the awsomeness that are the wookies.

    I don't even get why it's important for the sidekick motifs to rhyme ... Chebacca and Jar jar were polar opposites, nothing about them rhymed. If he wanted them to rhyme he should have started when he did the prequel trilogy and not squeeze two characters that had nothing in common into a third one.

    If the new trilogy features a wookie with floppy ears who steps into poop and acts like an idiot I don't think I'll survive that, the wookies are to awesome for a fate like that.

    Of course Chewbacca and Jar Jar didn't rhyme. Jar Jar rhymed with Han Solo.

    The social outcast, in trouble with the law, vest-wearing troublemaker who somehow helped our heroes to find a way around their enemies' position, only to lose hope and have a change of heart during the big battle. Jar Jar in Episode I is Han Solo in Episode IV. And it becomes even clearer once you realize that the original concept for Han Solo was that he was some kind of amphibious alien.

    And now I must find a large rock to bash my head on so that I might forget it. :scream: :p
