    At least the family friendly nature of Star Wars should mean we won't have to worry about them bringing some of the other issues I've seen people complain about with the last few season of GoT.

    They will do the job they are asked by LFL asks them to do. They were hired for their experience and ability to manage projects.

    I remember when people said the same of Lord & Miller...

    And that mistake was owned up by the powers that be.

    I'm just not going to assume that because these guys were hired it means GoT 2.0.

    Nobody's assuming anything, just pointing out there's a precedent for disappointing talent being let go from ongoing projects at LF. It's not impossible.
    Having a popular, flagship franchise getting a critically panned finale on said talent's watch is going to make any exec pause and consider their decisions. It certainly doesn't help B&W's standing any.

    Likely as not it will mean greater executive control, and less creative freedom.

    Which makes the odds of them saying "screw this, we're off!" all the higher.
    Though I must say, at this point, associating B&W with the word "creativity" is going to stretch the definition just a tad...

    Yup.
    Which is why I think LFL will reign them in. They will be highly protective of this process now.

    So you agree, the odds of them parting ways has decidedly gone up, yes?

    Well, we should at least get some burned skeletons and the occasional decapitation!

    Only if we get Viggo Mortensen in the film to do the decapitations.

    Unfortunate. It wasn't a bad movie but it could have been a lot more solid. The whole making-of was such a mess, despite having some potential in that script. But how much more time and other resources would be used to rewrite the thing yet again? Over 2/3rds of it was re-filmed... that's not a good sign by any measure, never mind the posters and the allegations behind all that... Am also surprised they don't do trial runs with digital recording beforehand to get a feel.

    They were on the right track with anthologies. Okay, "Rogue One" was hit or miss and planet-hopping a little too quick. Vader is arguably lively and hyperactive compared to a more subdued feel of threat in IV. And did the backstory really need to be fleshed out? The espionage flair had some potential...

    But "Solo" was a misfire but contained enough of interest at its core (Qira and Darth Maul being the tie-in for a huge in-universe expansion, without going too far on fanservice, which would potentially upend established character development in episodes IV-VII.) And as I generally don't care for prequels, their striking a chord with Maul was exactly what the franchise needed as it opened up more rather than catering to small universe syndrome (at least not yet).

    Apart from Rian's trilogy - which might be good (I won't know until I see it) -- and without the anchor that is "The Big Three of The O.T." there's more he can do before getting criticism over character handling. He knew had nothing to work on after VII so he did his own thing (he'd have gotten skewered regardless of what he did, VII is completely hollow as a film, with mystery boxes that won't lead to anywhere), a lot of which I liked, and there's always nitpicks but the whole film wasn't exactly a plopped flop...

    Jabba rising to power? How to get audiences to cheer on a big baddie isn't an easy task. We know he will be defeated, but the challenge is setting up the story and make the villain oddly likeable. Like Doctor Who's Master as played by Roger Delgado - sometimes you wanted him to win. Even the Doctor was looking forward to him returning after "Terror of the Autons" where his enemy's presence killed a lot of people for a cold calculating thrill.

    A Young Leia movie that doesn't upend her canon in IV-IX might be interesting. She was a princess of a planetary empire. There's plenty to exploit if handled deftly. (Remember those forgettable cartoons of recent that rewrote bits of IV-VI? Rewriting canon to fit an altered scenario that isn't accurate is generally perceived by many to be an insult to those who made the original material as well as the audience. Especially when there were a million other ways to reach out to get young kids interested, since it was obvious in 1977 that kids did everything possible to avoid going to that movie - even brushing their teeth! )

    No. What cartoons rewrote bits of IV-VI?

    Does this apply to Lucas as well?
