I guess because there's no exciting Star Wars news recently...

May The Fourth Be With You!

At least its random :P

I was wondering the other day. Do you believe the Star Wars franchise still has a future on the silver screen?

Depends. Is George Lucas connected to this in any way, shape, or form? Are we basing this silver screen escapade on the tried-and-true novels of the EU, staying true to their plots, or at least core concepts (IE The insanely popular X-wing series), or are we trying something completely new? Also, what's our target age? Are we making a series about wars marketable strictly for, oh, I dunno, preteens and the market of that stupid digital Clone Wars series, or are we being cool enough to acknowledge that lightsabers hack people's limbs off and making this for the action movie junkie, PG-13 rating crowd?

Between the animated cartoon and the live action coming soon, it's not like SW is going away. Whenever we'll see a full theatrical, live action release again... maybe in another 20 years? :)

When GL's grand-son decides to make a remake :P

The thing SW has to do is to become more like ESB and less like the Ewok movie.
Clearly they must aim for older audiences.

The obvious issue with that is money flow. The majority of folks who would be attracted to that are die-hard Star Wars fans, like you and me and most everyone else on a Star Wars-related forums about a game that came out over a decade ago.

Most people aren't this dorky, and it would completely alienate them if someone tried to make that movie, it would be critically acclaimed by the people who had begged for it, but there wouldn't be a big enough audience. Of course, having a niche audience wouldn't hurt Star Wars, seeing as trying to appeal to everyone has blown up in its face, but that's not the strategy anyone's going to take any time soon, in my opinion.

So I guess we'll have to wait and see if GL chooses critical acclaim and make the life-long fans happy or try and please the less than 12 kids.

It least I would like less Jedis and more EU. :)
