So. .. this may have been asked but with Disney owning the rights, Amy way we get the original version if the movies instead of the tinkered with versions?

Btw, I wonder if there's any chance the OT will be released in theaters next year? I haven't heard a peep, but that would be amazing.


There were plans in place to re-release all six films in theaters, in 3D. They got as far as Episode I, then they seemingly scrapped the idea. Not sure what happened there, but I hope they do it with the rest of them. Watching the OT in theaters would be sick. Something I've never experienced.

Just FYI, that Dave guy has been hyping this Episode VII news - whatever it is - all morning on Twitter. Says people are going to be talking about it all day. Article should be hitting in the next five to ten minutes...

So.. not that jaw-dropping, but still kind of cool. "Confirms" the idea a lot of us were talking about a few pages back concerning flashbacks. Namely, it looks like there will be a flashback sequence to events just before Episode IV, and in those flashbacks we'll be seeing [SPOILERS] not only a slightly younger Leia, but DARTH VADER as well. [/SPOILERS]

The article is apparently a two-parter, though, with the second part hitting this evening, explaining how this all connects together.

Also, anyone care to explain why the Inquisitors being the villains is such a big deal? This Dave guy will not shut up about how "this changes everything."

You have no idea how much it irks me that "An Ancient Evil" really does seem like a fitting title.

I'm not very well informed on the EU so I don't know much about the Inquisitors. But it sound like they could be pretty badass.

As for the flashback news...

Alleged concept art for Han Solo.

To be honest we're starting to venture into "knowing too much" territory, at least for me. Hopefully that's the last bit of details we get for a while.

Dang, Han has some serious stars and bars in that second pic.

Should have a gag one of him with a walker - old person, not Imperial one.

Yup. Pictures of sets, concept art, costume, etc. I'm totally OK with. It feeds my imagination. But I don't want to know anything about the story.

I totally get what you guys are saying, and definitely agree to an extent, but in truth we hardly know anything at all about the plot so far. A 30 second Episode VII TV spot would tell us more than we know right now. All we have are vague bits and pieces about the set-up and a few of the characters.

I'm wondering, should I start a spoiler thread at this point? I'm probably not going to read spoilers for much longer - maybe another couple of months or so - and then I'm likely out as well. But I feel like certain discussions here are turning people away from the thread, which is maybe hindering "normal" SW talk. Let me know what you guys think, and if so, I'll do kind of a summary of everything we know so far and put it in it's own thread.

Hm. I'm good either way. If the spoilers are within the links it should be fine. Plus I'm going to end up clicking them all anyway. I have zero self control when it comes to SW.

Don't even know if I should post some of this. Still basic set-up stuff, but man, this is starting to get out of hand, even for me.

yeah....I think I'm done with this thread then, just to play it safe


even if someone starts a spoiler thread, I've followed GOT enough to know that a nonspoiler thread does not mean no spoilers

Dave's final report of the day...

http://www.latino-review.com/news/star-wars-our-new-dawn

Basically, it's a long-winded way of saying the Star Wars: Rebels cartoon is "essential" viewing. Apparently all this new content will fit together and compliment each other like never before. Specifically, Star Wars: Rebels will at some point lead up to the "revealing" flashback sequence in Episode VII, showing us Vader, Leia, and potentially some of the other Inquisitors reporting to Vader (one of which is the main villain of the show).

That's kind of interesting that Disney doesnt own distribution rights until 2020, and never for Star Wars itself. Seems like that would have been a pretty big deal at the negotiating table. That means it would be hard down the line after episodes 7/8/9/whatever to release mega collectors edition of every film, right?

edit: also, I can't see why this is the case:
quote:
And there's one more wrinkle I've heard from sources at Fox: as long as George Lucas is alive they're not willing (or able? I'm not clear here) to go against his wishes and release the untouched originals.

Seriously, who gives a **** what George thinks? You sold the movies, bro. Give it up.

I'm guessing he is holding on to them just as another ace up his sleeve if he decides he needs another cool couple of billion, but still... **** him.
