lol, you know when you think about it, they could potentially get some very well known actors to do some guest/single episode roles for the tv series... but then having them there playing these roles would just seem very strange.... for example, imagine having Burt Reynolds play a seedy retired smuggler ...remember, he almost became Han Solo before Harrison Ford was finally chosen.

I wonder if $50 million is a number George pulled out of his a$$ on the spot. Especially since he himself said "we're going do something that would normally cost ($20 million-$30 million) and try to do it for $1 million," back in 2005.

Well, if people are going to rant, why not rant about what we have been told and not pull stuff out of our collective asses?

Sorry, I was just playing off of what Shem was saying. I wasn't trying to put words in your mouth or anything.


"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."

I know! It was an actual question...

You know I love you long time!

In any event, if this thing ever gets made I think it could rock based on what has been said about it so far.

It should just be like a live action Macross, lots of piloting, space fighting, and love triangles. Oh and singing.

Star Wars is already like that.

Yes. Yes you are.

Remember, the money will be needed so that the films can be revisited and updated in really important ways because of the TV series. After all, you can't have characters not looking the same all the way through...

I can't remember which moderator told me they were going to ban me for life if I posted this again. RedHawke?

Looking at Star Wars history on TV, perhaps the series not happening is a good thing.

What a concept!
Oh come on, we all know that graphics are everything.

But isn't that how it's supposed to be done?

Like how Hulk Hogan refused to stop with his same old tired routine year after year? I mean sure he eventually became an announcer/Gen. Manager but come on. Hafta milk that money cow!!!

Hmm. Are you implying that this is a sign someone has lost that edge that made his work great in the first place?
...OH YOU!!!

Lucas needs to lay off that He is making that number up to impress and horrify us... it is indeed grand hyperbole, IMO, as Ctrl Alt Del surmised.
I'll give you $20 to get rid of the dead mice off the catwalk.
