    Why not post this in the current Star Wars Disney thread?

    Also, sounds just like Disney. Can't wait to rip these movies a new one once I see 'em!

    You know, if Vadar comes back as a villain, that pretty much destroys the themes of Episode Six on good vs. evil and retribution. Vadar at the end did turn into a "good guy" and kill off the Emperor. If he's a villain in the next film, I will be pissed.

    If this movie doesn't cover the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, i'm going to be disappointed. Star Wars already has a colorful Expanded Universe and there's no need to throw in additional tripe like Vader's resurrection, unless it's an entirely different person adopting the Vader Sith name.

    I hope it's not true. I think it would be very hard to get Hamill, Ford and Fisher back on track too.

    And yeah, there's already boatloads of Star Wars cannon they could go off rather than trying to regurgitate the same old stuff.

    And one of the quotes claims "He’s (Vader's) an integral part of the franchise. Replacing him is virtually impossible.” Seems like the perfect reason to not make another movie at all.

    Because all arniejolt ever does is post threads.

    I don't think he even plays Rock Band.

    this is bad news. my worry with Disney taking over is that they would go way outside the box on some **** and dilute some of the aforementioned qualities that the original films brought to the franchise. They should stick to the main Star Wars canon and, as I said in the other Star Wars thread, would be good to be faithful to the story lines that some of the Star Wars authors developed.

    Darth Vader is part of the force now. Leave him there and bring him back as one of those Force apparitions only.

    I'm more disappointed than angry. They have carte blanche with one of the most diverse and famous universes ever created, and the first thing they want to do is bring back a villain who not only redeemed himself but also, you know, died? Talk about unoriginal.

    I know Star Wars is a Science Fiction franchise, but bringing Vader back would be bs.

    Lucas already ruined the concept of "The Force" by bringing up midichlorians in Episode I. Leave it to Disney to ruin the concept of retribution, death and coming back as a good guy apparition at the end of Episode VI.


    Honestly, I think I'm one of the few people who hopes for an original story involving Luke's son to continue on the theme about the sins of the father and the affect it has on the son. Hell, there's even the thread of wise mentors being father figures. Luke, being the last Jedi, could train a young padawan that ends up falling to the Dark Side (hence, the cycle continuing).

    a reimagining or reboot of the franchise--a la Batman and now Spiderman--is not necessary. they REALLY should take the books and adapt them for the big screen. We've already gone through the prequels. Shooting sequels from the books (Bakura, the Thrawn and Admiral what's-her-name trilogies, etc) would be an opportunity to get the franchise back on track after the prequel disasters.

    only issue of course is trying to use the same actors, who have aged. but then of course the characters age as well.

    Oh, I love the writer's comment, "People have to realize it's Science Fiction."

    That's no excuse to do something like this.

    "It's fantasy, so let's revive Sauron and have him make a new ring. Perfect!"

    Honestly I think it's stupid when they use the "it's Science Fiction" excuse to bring back a character that was dead. It's one of the things that annoys me most about Science Fiction movies.

    It's one of the worst things you could ever do to a series. That and introduce a racist comic relief character. And since they have already done that, they must have figured "what the hell" and decided to f*** everything up.

    INDEED! No one expects movies to act like real life, but they should at least follow the rules they set in their own universes. Don't people stay dead when they die in Star Wars?

    It would be cool of the Emperor had knowledge of the Force to bring himself back. But Vadar is dead and needs to stay dead.

    It's science fiction, but not soap opera.

    The Emperor does actually bring himself back in the books. He cloned himself before he died.

    If you must blame anyone, blame the guy(s) who wrote The Death and Return of Superman. They opened the door and it shows no sign of closing any time soon.

    My first reaction to ressurrecting Vader was "HELL NO!! That's stupid!" But then I thought more about it and realized that since the concept of cloning was introduced in the prequel (in fact Fett was a clone), it could be a possability since cloning would have, I assume, been strictly under Palpatine's control. Making sure he could bring back his prize Sith may have occured to him and DNA sampling could have easily occured while Vader was being suited even without Anakin/Vader's knowledge of it. If Disney went with a clone they could use an unsuited Vader and get Haiden to play the part as well. That could actually be interesting, I think.

    Guys, this movie is in good hands. Michael Arndt of Toy Story 3 and Little Miss Sunshine is screenwriting episode VII. And VIII and IX are being written and produced by Simon Kinberg (xXx, Date Night, X-Men: First Class) and Lawrence Kasdan (Episodes V and VI, Raiders of the Lost Ark).

    I hate when people turn down new Star Wars stuff just because it's new Star Wars. Yes, they might have done things the fans didn't enjoy, but that happened with James Bond too, and instead of just stewing about it, people ignored the bad stuff and appreciated the good stuff. I don't see why people can just do the same with Star Wars

    I hope they don't use CGI for this one. The prequels overdosed so much on the special effects that they forget to put in the substance that the Holy Trilogy had in abundance. I think it's pretty funny that the original three films look far more realistic (IMO) than the new ones. Uncanny valley to the extreme, right?

    No CGI? At all? Imagine any movie from the past 15 years without CGI. It would suck. It would destroy the immersion and limit the possibilities of what could be done in the movie
