That Mace Windu movie sounds better than anything Abrams is going to crap out.
I'd say that there's plenty of room in there for both the new movies and the EU if Disney bothered to put some effort into it, at least taking cue from it as to what works and doesn't. I would hate nothing more than to see the movies invalidate the entire EU because a lot, I'd even say most, of it is pretty damn good. As much as people love to whine about it, the EU is a lot better than the movies themselves in a lot of ways, and taking cues from it wouldn't be the worst thing that could happen to these new movies. That, and I doubt most of those who complain about the EU could really do any better themselves despite claims to the contrary.Kyrian007 said:Snip
Hell, I'm with Bob on this one. I would prefer they do key points of 'remember what I did' rather than star them. While part of it is to do with their age, their characters should step aside for new stories and ideas. I was excited for Star Wars 1313, until I found out you would play as Boba Fett.Bruce Kilkowski said:Eh, I don't have much of a problem with this. I'd rather see the original characters play significant roles before being retired for good, instead of just being cameos/plot points. Heck, the latter wouldn't be all that different from going the Alien³ "offscreen death just because" route.
And nice to see that you're representing all parties involved based on only their worst work and dismissing the whole idea as a "fan film." Real class act, Bob. This is the kind of cynicism the internet needs less of.
