>Disney are in talks with McGregor for an unspecified role. That role is believed to be a Post-Episode III Ben Kenobi in not just one movie, but three in a spinoff series that are separate from the Anthology/Star Wars Story series that Rogue One is part of.
Kill me the fuck now.
>Based Ewan gets to be Obi-Wan with an actually good script now
God willing, let it happen.
One would be fine, but three is overkill
>You'll never be gently caressed by McGregor after he takes the high ground
Friendly reminder that Rogue One comes out 5 months before Episode 8
>yfw its actually just a remake of the Prequel Trilogy
Seriously. Why don't they do live action TV instead of these featured film fiascos?
They can air it on ABC and steal Once Upon a Time's budget.
This doesn't mean Star Wars characters can appear in that shitfest of show, since it is Disney, does it? Please no.
>Abrams is done with Star Wars now
His script has completely influenced the future of the series, and he is staying on as a story consultant and exec. producer for the other two mainline films.
SW was more than 3 years non-stop working and he wants to be there for his kids bat mitzvah
He says he regrets it now though, lel
>In May 2011, George Lucas stated that 50 episodes had been written, but that the series is on hold awaiting advances in technology and reductions in prices. McCallum has elaborated on this, contrasting the high production costs of the series with current developments in TV production, and highlighting the question of monetization in the era of online distribution against the backdrop of the collapse of traditional TV broadcasting.
>mfw I'll be in the army so I won't be able to watch it in IMAX
>question of monetization
Netflix Original Series solves that.
You do have a point, I don't have broadcast TV at all. But I still pay for Netflix. In exchange for my password, a friend gave me their HBO-GO password,
But this issue would be solved if they went to an online service like Netflix. It was already successful with Clone Wars.
>Disney are in talks with McGregor for an unspecified role. That role is believed to be a Post-Episode III Ben Kenobi
I won't be seeing any more star wars movies, but neat
>in not just one movie, but three in a spinoff series that are separate from the Anthology/Star Wars Story series
I want off this ride
Can you imagine going back in time, and telling your 10 year old self that the future is horrible because there are too many comic book and star wars movies? It's like being force fed ice cream and its never over
>birched like a moron about SW ruining his career
I like it, we never hear was Obi was up to between RotS and New Hope. He only hints that Yoda has some training for him to undertake, maybe we can throw in some bounty hunters searching for the last Jedi, and we have a movie
nothing to do here & no pay so might as well do something for the country right
I would love to see this movie, but not in the way you guys imagine it. The bounty hunters look all over the place to find the last of the Jedi, interspersed with scenes of Ben just going about his mundane life in his hovel on Tatooine. Then the movie ends.
>three movies of ewan travelling around the galaxy alone doing detective work
please let this happen
I thought Sheev said he had some kind of "fate better suited for you." or whatever?
I don't know the Maul character in Clone Wars was great but bringing him back was a real asspull.
Holy shit. I just realized something:
> Capeshit versus Star Wars movies/spin-offs for the next 6-8 years.
Holy fucking shit. Cinema will be fucking buried underneath all of this MUH HYPE shit. We'll just have action movie after action movie after action movie.
If you think /tv/ is shit now, wait until next year. Half of our threads will be Capeshit, and the other half will be SW.
>tfw no buddy cop comedy with Obi-Wan as the by the book Jedi, Anakin as the loose canon, and Yoda/Samuel L. Jackson as the chief who continuously threatens to take away their lightsabers and cloaks
What face? You posted death star 2 m8
this scene is the only genuinely good one in the film. It continues ewan's arc right where it cut, and it sparks that adventure spirit we all know from star wars :<)
Jesus, no he didn't. Force Awakens was DEVOID of any plot, it basically served as a starting point for character development, a role which it filled very well. Plot wise, all we know is that First Order is bad, Kylo Ren killed a bunch of younglings, and the New Republic is even more of a bureaucratic mess than the old one was. The next director could take the plot in literally any direction, we'll have to wait and see. Abrams played it safe with the first movie, focusing mainly on developing the primary characters of the new trilogy, where the plot was mainly a background feature and practically mirrored the story of a New Hope. This strategy seems to have paid off, considering the positive reviews and incredible box office performance. Hopefully for Episode VIII they get a talented director that, unlike Abrams, is a little more willing to take creative risks with the franchise. I would like to see some world building, and the focus should hopefully be more on the progression of the plot than solely on the stories of the characters. The choices of the next director will determine how the reboot trilogy (and associated spinoffs, most likely) will be viewed in coming years.
Yeah, so after that, Maul's allies gang up and attack Sidious to free him (this was in a comic book I believe). Well, Sidious fucking wrecks Maul's friends with Dooku, and Maul, realizing he's beat, flees.
And Sidious just lets him go, claiming he'll never be a threat again.
So Maul is still out there in the canon.
Kind of looks like a cyclops making a face like this
>Obi wan, Ventress, and maul team up to fight the beginning of the Empire
They knew the First Order was a threat, but rather than confronting them head on (according to Autismpedia they directly violated several conditions of the Empire's peace treaty, like building a shit ton of war ships and a planet destroying super base), the New Republic tries to appease them and ignore their recent expansion into new space. Meanwhile, the senators who actually realize the First Order is a serious problem start funding the "Resistance" under the table, while the Senate actively denies any such activity is occurring. With the funds and weapons provided the Resistance becomes a serious problem for the First Order, and ends up pissing the First Order off so much that they decide to use their new planet gun thing to hatefuck the Republic's capital. Ironically, the actions the New Republic took to prevent a war with the First Order directly lead to them getting fucked in the end. If they had just built a significant military and used their power to enforce the peace treaty years ago, they would still have a capital.
>And now they're going to beat star wars into the ground
This is my greatest woe about life in this brave new era where a Star Wars movie is released once a year. As a fan, I'm actually excited to see some of these concepts explored on the silver screen, as well as for Ewan to get another stab at Obi-wan with (potentially) better direction. But these movies may not be quite so palatable to the general public. It's sad to know that the day will soon come when a Star Wars movie being released is no longer considered special or an "event".
They spent over half a decade tossing ideas around for this show. It's really too bad given some of the talent he brought on to write scripts. It's Lucas's baby though, so there's no way Disney would revive this, despite releasing it on Netflix (as >>64646267 said) being a great solution.
Flash Gordon (1980)
You have things backwards. Disney always intended to to take the EU out behind the shed and put it down. And it always intended to replace it with something really stupid(not that the EU wasn't stupid). That's why they picked Abrams.
>kill me now
>implying BASED McGregor wasn't the best part of the prequels along with Sheev
>it serviced as a starting point for character development
So basically it just introduced the characters, it had no character development, no plot, no themes.
thats the most lazy shit I've ever heard. Why they fuck to I need to to watch a 3 hour film to be introduced to 1 dimensional characters.
It's strange how the more people try and defend TFA, the more they make me realize how shit it is
It'd be a better fit if he were to voice the character in the Rebels cartoon, that'd be great continuity.
After all they managed to get Liam Neeson back to do Qui Gon for The Clone Wars so why would getting Ewan be any harder?
>Can you imagine going back in time, and telling your 10 year old self that the future is horrible because there are too many comic book and star wars movies?
Could be worse.
you could tell him that he'll spend a large part of his life anonymously posting on a Tahitian shadow puppetry board
Don't worry, it will never ever be used again, and there will be plenty of scenes where jedi just let themselves get shot at without simply disarming the non-force sensitive opponent(s) instantly
Reminder that Obi-wan should have lost his legs at the start of Episode 3
His body survived direct anti-ship lasers and anti-ship torpedo explosions. Such precedence is common in a deep setting created by George Lucas, and you should be ashamed for not recognizing this.
