Is This The End?

IS this the end to the Star Wars saga? I mean movies the games should keep coming (hopefully good ones at that), but is this the end of the movies? what do us geeks have now?

That would be bad yes. Well, the live action television series will be coming sometime in 2007 unless it gets delayed. As far as the films go, George says he's finished with them. I think he should continue with them and maybe he will change his mind down the road. I'm hoping for more films.

Of coarse it is! We jedi live long healthy lives and become one with the force, while trekies and their big ears die a slow, painful death. Mwahaha

Trek is dead. With the (merciful) cancillation of Enterprise, they won't make another Trek series for at least another five+ years. It will, however, be based on the time ship Relativity.

Poor Trekkies. Well at least the Trekkers are safe!

In any case, I think a person can be a fan even if new content isn't constantly coming out. One doesn't have to like everything in a franchise after all... we all pick and choose (except the most obsessed amongst us!).

Btw, your sig is HUGE! 80 kb is the limit. What is it with people and huge sigs lately? If I strung them all together I could about watch ROTS for free (albeit with no sound)... seriously!

Ha! Another one.. man I'm nailing 'em all today. Darth Sooges, your sig is too big! The limit is 80 kb and your's is 103 kb, please fix!

And yes, there are at least two TV shows coming out (one CG, one live action).

I'm actually glad that the movies are over- they can't make any episodes that take place before episode VI (unless they either change the episode order, or do something stupid like add negative numbers or fraction numbers), and I would hate for stuff after episode VI to become huge theatrical movies like the other six. However, I think they should make EU books into DVD-only movies, because books like Shadows of the Empire I want to read, but I just don't have fun reading anymore (used to, it like just went away), and I think Star Wars movies should stick to the theatres.

I don't think Lucas will leave this big pile of money alone. So he might come back. If we're lucky he'll remake TPM without Jar-Jar.

Paramount has said that they won't do another Trek until for at least another 7 years. They have said that when they do, it will be about the Federation Time Ship Relativity.
Besides, Frakes and most of the other TNG cast have said that they are done with their Star Trek roles. Spiner even went so far as to demand that Data be killed off.

I think "dormant" is a better word to use here. If another Trek were made, they'd spring right back. After all, if another starwars movie was made in ten years time, I know I'd revitalize my fan-status and rush to see it.

Well, Trekkies awaken from the retirement homes... what a sight...

Then again we can say the same about old old generation warsies.

The difference is that starwars is "easier to approach" than startrek.

I mean, starwars products are geared more towards the general public, mostly. Then again, no one translates the Bible into Huttese ... yet, and they have done it with Klingon.

Thats because Trek fans are generally much bigger losers than Star Wars fans.

That's a gross generalization. Though I tend to agree, based off of personal experience.


Not to say that they're bad people. Any diehard fan of anything is in the same boat with any other diehard fan of anything.

Well, Star Trek never permeated popular culture like Star Wars, and SW has a more vibrant community, as a whole. Not to mention, Lucasarts/Lucasfilm has said that fans have plenty to look forward to.

Is there not another season of Clone Wars on the way?

This time in full CG animation?

It is set, just like the 2-D version, during the 3-year time period in which the Clone Wars took place, between the events of Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith. It is likely to focus on more of the stories and battles between The Republic, led by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, and The Confederacy of Independent Systems, led by Count Dooku, except in a 3-D format.
Sorry, I was wrong, HALF-hour programs. I didn't think they would rehash the old seasons of Clone Wars. D:

Although, I could be wrong.

Well they couldn't possibly make a season 3 following season 2 because season 2 ended at the start of Revenge of the Sith.

I think they intend to delve into more stories of the Clone Wars, perhaps the Battle of Saleucamai (...wthever), or Boz Pity. Quinlan Vos is a favourite amongst many fans, so perhaps they want to show some stories of him as well?

I imagine that there are more Clone Wars battles that will work great on the TV Screen. And I was also under the impression that the third season will be more about the Clone Wars, while the Live Action series will go into the Aftermath of the rise to power of Emperor Palpatine.

I think this is the end of the Star Wars movies under George Lucas. Like Gene Roddenberry, George Lucas will leave a legacy that will be continued by other artists.

I think this the start of George's TV writting career for the Star Wars Universe. However, I don't think it will last long. He may get about three years of Star Wars TV, and that will be about it. I think there is a strong movie fan base, but I don't think there is a strong tv fan base. I could be wrong, but I wouldn't bet on him getting high ratings for longer than two years.

George did a Young Indiana Jones series that was pretty good; however, it didn't last for long.

If there was any medium that has potential to grow further, the 'Expanded Universe' novels will gain greatly from the aftermath of the Star Wars saga.
