Lucas Retiring

I think Lucas may be retiring. The reasons? THX-1138, Star Wars, and Indiana Jones are all have special editions on DVD. I think lucas is just gonna chill at the ranch after hes done with Episode III. You thoughts?

I hope you're wrong. If he is though, I think I may go off in a corner and cry.

well lucasfilm has confirmed that they will be a star wars T.V show. so he'll probably be executive producer or something on that. he may retire from directing, but not film-making.

It depends, I suppose, on how much time he puts between E6 and E7. Hamil, Fisher, and Ford are still alive. (Though perhaps barely).

Still, its not too drastic to put some capable actors on the screen in their places. Bond movies did it with mixed success.

After seeing the action he was able to portray in the Bourne flicks and the character depth he could reach in Good Will Hunting, Matt Damien might be an interesting Skywalker.

Viggo Mortensen's performance in Hidalgo proves he can be a bit of a scoundral, and everyone loved his performance as Aragon in LoTR.

And I've always wanted to see Ellen DeGeneres as Princess Leia.








I'm j/k. I actually think Catherine Zeta-Jones would be a fine Leia. Fine in every sense of the word.

How about they just take cast from MXC?

They could have



Kenny Blankenship as the smartmouthed hero.




Vic Romano as the straight-faced sidekick.




Guy Le Douche as the third wheel




Captain Tenneal a.k.a. The Skipper as the evil supervillian.

and



Herby the Steamy Pile as the criminal mob boss.


I think you will agree that the movies I would make would be kick ass.


"Indeed!"

Besides for managing his companies, he probably won't make another big movie. As people said, he will stick to that TV series.

They could use Hamill, Fisher, and Ford if they did it around the time of the NJO series.

[sarcasm]Would you like me to mail you some of the NJO books, and perhaps an NJO hat or t-shirt? Your love of the series shows greatly, TK.[/sarcasm]

Seriously, why do people hate the NJO so much? I think they're cool.

I guess you're not up to my level of maturity. *sigh*

Because they are crappy stories

But lets not open that can of worms in this thread.


Point being, if Lucas retires he damn well better release the ORIGINAL trilogy on DVD before he does, lest I plot his death.

No, I don't have the DVD, but I was looking at the changes that were made... like repaceing the Anakin ghost with that little fu**tard...


I still don't get it.

The Anakin shown in the original episode never existed. Anakin died in Episode III as a young man. Then Darth Vader was born. Behind the mask, it has always been a mangled, half-machine, half-human thing. Therefore, the man in Return of the Jedi never would have existed. Hope that helps.

Yes, I knew that. I was talking of them replaceing Anakin's ghost with Hayden Christensen on the DVD, which really pisses me off.

And why? Because it makes the series more connected, and makes more sence?

I know! Let's let 20 years go by, get access to new, exiting technology and not use it! I'd be dissapointed in Lucas if the DVDs didn't offer some improvments like that.

Now, if I pop the DVD in and there are added musical numbers or something....

I'd be inclined to agree with you.

lol you guys are so freaking close minded, stubborn, childish and lame.

I was 5 years old when I saw A New Hope. To this day the trilogy has all three of my favorite movies of all time (Empire's the best!)

Was ep.1 a dissapointment? yeah. But if it were not part of the franchise I would have really liked it. Ep.2 was much better, really tied alot of the series together.

I'm not upset about using items from ep1/2 in the older films, because I love the franchise as a whole. I've seen the films in their original form, and own all three on VHS. The DVD version is newer, and thus newer things are not bad.

Stop crying about the goddamn movies being changed. We aren't 5 years old anymore, life goes on.

And as far as that bratty little ****er goes....I had my doubts but he does the light/dark thing very well. Quite what I expected from a young Anakin Skywalker....perhaps you would have preffered if they magically made mark hammill 40 years younger and play that part too?

it is more the fact that there is no archive of the original movies availble on a high quality dvd to compare it to the new.
imo the rawness of the first movies is what made them so good, and all the special effects in what make up episodes 1 and 2 are what brought there downfall. they r too perfect, and the acting is less emotional. they coudlve easily had an original theatrical release with audio commentary on top of it.
the audio commentary on the special edition versions would be about how they enhanced everything, and in the theatrical version they should have the audio which is currently being used on the dvd which just came out. im not sure if youve watched the new dvds, but there was alot of new added scenes just rolling passed the screen while the audio people were crapping on how the used old stuff to make the effects. it just didnt match.

I'm going to say sure, if GL wanted newer things in his movies then that' shis perogative. They are his. But WE are the people who MADE him so rich, and it is the ORIGINAL movies that are the reason we are who we are. GL OWES it to us to give us the option of seeing our original movies on a high quality format.

I agree the scene with Jabba looks really strange, and Han not firing first really is not consistant with his charecter, but I appreciate the movies being freshened up for DVD none the less.

if done right, a starwars tv show would be awesome. though it would have to be 20 times the budget of a startrek episode and good actors will help, but it better be written and produced by lucas or it wll probably suck balls.

Lucas should just stop after number 3. I cant bear to see yet another hollow computer generated disaster with no soul. MR LUCAS! ACTORS AND PUPPETS ARE FAR SUPERIOR TO THAT COMPUTER GENERATED CRAPFEST OF EPISODES 1&2.
