    The dialogue in the earlier films is every bit as lame as the newer ones.

    This is a sentiment that can only be echoed by someone who has not actually watched the films.

    The negativity and criticism in this thread is laughable. They're kids movies and kids will love them.

    This statement gave me hope: "Lucas said in a statement, 'It's now time for me to pass 'Star Wars' on to a new generation of filmmakers.'" If new people can make sure Jar Jar Binks doesn't happen again, I'll be happy.
    Not that, sickos.

    Seriously. Jar Jar was a sellout for commercial purposes. That is why I prefer the original trilogy to the prequels.

    Kind of off topic, but speaking of sketchy movie franchises, has anyone seen the commercial for the new Twilight movie? Braveheart has been out for 17 years and people are still using that stupid battle scene where the two sides run towards each other, and the new Twilight movie is no exception only they're doing it over a frozen lake. But it appears as if Christen Stuart is wearing Trinity from the Matrix gear and they're using Matrix slow motion special effects to show her kick someone during the Braveheart battle scene. It looks horrible.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    I broke the news via email to a guy I worked with 8 years ago that was the biggest Star Wars fan I'd ever met. I told him not to get his hopes up because Episode VII supposedly ties the Star Wars and Captain EO universes together.

    I'm sure Alec Guiness was really pissed he (spoiler alert!) got killed off in the first one. He didn't get to be involved with this gem

    wow
    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.

    I'm shocked and amazed that George Lucas decided money is more important than his artistic vision. That Christmas special will, sadly, be sullied by what Disney will do with the Star Wars universe. It is a sad day for art.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    Before Youtube, my BIL gave us a bootleg DVD copy of that. I never got all the way through it. It is horrific. For some perspective: there is an entire musical number performed by Bea Arthur in the Mos Eisley cantina.

    I think this is a good thing.

    Whatever magic Lucas had in the 70s and 80s is all gone. I think Disney will produce the best SW movie since Return of the Jedi. Maybe I'm just an optimist, but nothing could be worse than episodes i and ii (I liked iii).

    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    I'm interested to see who the main characters of 7-9 are. I read a lot of the post-Episode 6 books, and I'm excited to see where they decide to pick up the story (if they even respect the canon).

    OK seems you're a bit better versed in this than I am. Are we not talking about Jacen Skywalker?

    I for one am excited for the moment when Darth Vader holds up baby Luke on the mountain while the storm troopers sing Circle of Life.

    Leia and Han have twins with the names Jacen and Jaina. Ben Skywalker is the oldest child of Luke and Mara Jade.

    I don't know if Lucas is sick, but he clearly has some thyroid issues.

    I don't want them to skip to the next generation. I want to see how Luke turns out, even if they have to cast different characters.

    If I remember correctly, there is a bunch of cool stuff having to do with the Emporer's force ghost making his way back and occupying a different body or a robot or clone or something, Luke re-establishing the Jedi order, going to the dark side for a while, returning... guess it's time to download those Timothy Zahn books

    Zahn's books are awesome. They opened a flood of new content. Once you enter Wonderland, don't expect to come out for several months. But in all honesty, I really like most of the novels that are post ROTJ
