    Re: Disney to Acquire LucasFilm

    I'm sure it won't happen, but Disney should consider rebooting Star Wars. The prequels were not fun like the originals, I think it's because of Lucas' decision to make Darth Vader Luke's father. He obviously was not his father in the original Star Wars, but Lucas changed it in Empire Strikes Back and tried to explain it in Jedi, making Obi Wan look like a fool.

    Vader can claim to be Luke's father, like the devil that deceives, but is proven untrue in ROTJ. Also I heard that originally Han Solo was supposed to die. If he died at the end of ROTJ, as a hero saving the rebellion, it would have been recompense for his years as a scoundrel, and it would have made the end of the second trilogy melancholy, which would be a good set up for the final trilogy.

    The storyline of Star Wars is very piecemeal. The problem with making the prequels after the middle trilogy was that movie special effects were better, so it looked like the earlier time of the prequels was more technologically advanced than the later time of the middle trilogy. Also the action in the prequels was more extreme, compare when Obi Wan and Anakin are running through the rolling space ship in the prequels vs the low tech garbage compactor in Star Wars. If you reboot the whole thing, you can start out with a lower amount of action, then build it up in the middle.

    Also, the Emperor building a new Death Star in ROTJ was lame, it was just a rehash of the original. The rebel fighters should have attacked the Emperor's city with all the action of flying through the infrastructure of the buildings. Actually when I originally saw the previews of ROTJ in the theaters, I thought that they were flying through the Emperor's city, and was disappointed when it was just another Death Star. And the Ewok planet should be replaced by the Wookiees, like Lucas' original idea.

    I'm not sure if CGI technology is at a point where they can make a truly lifelike human, but that would be the answer to recreating characters like Luke etc. and aging them appropriately through the series.

    If they are going to expand the Star Wars universe, they need to start with a firm foundation, and the films they have, especially the prequels, aren't solid enough.

    Re: Disney to Acquire LucasFilm

    ^they can't.....so what was the TV show for? Nothing, as cool as the idea is they've invested too much and would confuse most kids why they changed the whole story

    Besides Cad Bane, Rex and even Lex are some really cool and deep characters and also make up for all the faults of the prequel movies

    There are many more parts of the movie pretty unsuitable for a Disney Park production.
    Adapting anything to another medium will require some changes. For something like this, they would not try to replay the entire 108 minutes of the movie. Now, if Disney were to reshoot the movie and try to dumb it down to a G rating, that would be different. I don’t think adapting it to another medium is “disneyfying” anything.

    I think there would be complete outrage from the fan community if this were to happen. It is going to be bad enough if Episode VII ends up throwing away 20 years of Expanded Universe continuity that was up until that point considered canon.

    The whole thing would have to be re-written and then it's not American Graffiti. Plus, I'm not sure of the "happy memories" if Disney were to announce at the end of the musical that Milner was killed by a drunk driver and Toad was killed in Vietnam......

    Aladdin was shortened when they made it into a stage show as well and it was still Aladdin. I think this can work the same.

    [PREDICTION] now that they own Lucas Films, the Walt Disney Co will implement more STAR WARS / INDIANA JONES (maybe WILLOW as I still <3 that film) experiences into all of their Theme Parks because this will sell more merchandise per hour then a cast member manning a churro cart (lol) ...


    All jokes aside, this is a WIN / WIN for Walt Disney & Lucas Film fans -
