Episode VII and Beyond (Spoilers & Speculation)

Recommended Posts

Uncle Du

Didn't see anything updated in here, so figured I would start this thread so we have a place for all the rumors and hypothesis about the new movies.

I think my biggest thing is this: if they don't follow the EU in SOME way, it would be like a huuuuge "EFF YOU" to all the fans that have read, and made the EU so crazy successful. Just hope that ol George retains enough power to keep Disney from screwin' with the entire universe.

Yes, getting everything to fit with the Eu will be difficult. But then again, George has ignored the Eu before- I should post the page from the first edition Star Wars encyclopedia, in which Boba Fett is not and never was a clone.

Hmmm...it's not the first ed. Encyclopedia, so I'm going to have to keep searching my books until I find that pic!

I honestly find myself not looking forward to episode 7. It would just be too easy to mess up the story lines that have become "canon". There's also the threat of really horrible casting decisions (as in anyone who appeared in Twilight....).

Yea, I really don't see myself getting all worked up over this. The books were just too awesome, and went perfectly with the rest of the universe.

I'm interested to see what the new "look" is for these films. The original trilogy, and the prequel trilogy, had distinctive looks that it didn't matter what film you saw a glimpse of, you knew what trilogy it belonged in. I think this new trilogy will be the same.

I also never imagined I'd be waiting in line for a Star Wars movie ever again. :p

Yeah, there is that. I think when it comes down to it, I've gotta support the franchise, but I'm going to be real careful not to get my hopes and expectations up too high.

Haha! I don't think any one here can kid themselves and say they won't support the new movies in some way. I know that I'll be standing in line at midnight, a mid-thirties guy, with his kid in tow, and all his geek ass friends and their kids too. That's how we roll. And we know this. ;)

Also...the planned release is 2015....and the alleged Celebration VII is in 2014...presumably in Orlando, because it will be the third year of their agreement (ie: they said there was a three year contract with the Orange Convention Center for Celebrations, but they didn't say it was three consecutive years ;) )...

The anticipation at that convention will be amazing!

I'm totally focused on getting my debts paid down/off in the next two years. If I can handle another two years of this traveling bullsith. I'm trying to keep my eyes on the prize and think about all the great sith I can do if I pay all this crap off.

And now Lucasfilm has decided to indefinitely postpone the 3D releases of Episodes II & III to focus "100%" on Episode VII. I wanted to see those this year...especially RotS... Grr....

Well, if the rumours are (hopefully) true, they will be remaking the prequels once the next trilogy is done.

I am really, really worried about them completely destroying the EU. Hopefully, they realize that characters like Thrawn, Mara Jade, Corran Horn, the Solo children, etc. and events are really popular and that destroying them would create a backlash.

I agree. Let's say the new movie takes place before the NJO and kills of Han, just saying, just for instance. That would destroy EVERYTHING NJO and beyond. That's unthinkable. To think Traitor never happened... Wow.

Lucas et al. have at least shown some willingness to accept EU-related material (e.g., Coruscant as the capital, Kashyyyk as the wookiee homeworld, Aaylah Secura). Hopefully, they realize this and try to find ways that don't screw everything up.

EU, not NJO

Maybe you're right. Hopefully in the future we won't be saying about Disney-buys-Lucas, "This deal is getting worse all the time."

    • Everything we know about Episode IX

      Star Wars Episode IX is the third and final film of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, continuing and bringing to a close the story threads set in motion in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. But what do we really know about the ninth chapter of the Star Wars saga?
      This article will be regularly updated as new information is confirmed, and we'll avoid rumours so you can be sure you have the facts.
      Warning: Although we do not intend to reveal major spoilers here, please be aware that due to the nature of this article some may remain.
      Last updated: July 2018.
       
      Newest Information
      Filming has now begun at Pinewood Studios near London.
      Lucasfilm has confirmed that they will use unused footage from The Force Awakens to allow the late Carrie Fisher to reprise her role as Leia.
      Billy Dee Williams is returning as Lando Calrissian, but it is unknown how large a role he will have.
      Richard E Grant and Naomi Ackie have been confirmed as new cast members.
       
      Production and Release
      Episode IX is currently set for release on 20 December 2019.
      Principal photography is due to begin in July 2018. The working title is “Black Diamond”. IMAX cameras will be used to film some sequences.
      The film's soundtrack will once again be scored by Star Wars veteran John Williams. Williams has said that this will likely be his final Star Wars movie.
      In February 2018, Paul Inglis joined as the Lead Supervising Art Director. He had previously worked on Blade Runner 2049, Prometheus, and Skyfall.
       
      Cast and Crew
      Cast confirmed:
      Daisy Ridley as Rey Adam Driver as Kylie Ren John Boyega as Finn Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron Lupita Nyong'o Domhnal Gleeson as Hux Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker Carrie Fisher as Leia Organa Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian Billie Lourd Richard E Grant Naomi Ackie Anthony Daniels as C-3P0 Jimmy Vee as R2-D2  
      Crew confirmed:
      Director - JJ Abrams Writers - JJ Abrams, Chris Terrio Producers - Kathleen Kennedy, JJ Abrams, Michelle Rejwan Cinematographer - John Schwartzman Art Director - Paul Inglis Music - John Williams  
      Director
      JJ Abrams is returning to direct Episode IX, with Kathleen Kennedy producing. It was previously slated to be directed by Colin Trevorrow, who worked closely with The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson to ensure continuity between their respective movies. Trevorrow left the project in September 2017 due to “creative differences”. Disney had to pay off Paramount Pictures to secure Abrams, as he had breached contract with them for The Force Awakens.
       
      Carrie Fisher
      Carrie Fisher was due to have a major role in Episode IX as General Leia Organa. When she tragically passed away in December 2016 the story team “pretty much started over”, according to Kathleen Kennedy.
      Lucasfilm was quick to quash rumors that Leia would be digitally recreated, similar to Tarkin’s appearance in Rogue One. Fisher's brother and daughter have granted rights for Lucasfilm to use recent footage of her, but Kennedy has since stated that Fisher will not be in Episode IX.
      In July 2018 it was announced that with the blessing of Fisher's family unused footage from The Force Awakens will be used to allow the inclusion of Leia.
    • Boba: a Star Wars Story

      So it's been confirmed, per THR:
      https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/star-wars-boba-fett-movie-is-happening-james-mangold-direct-1113273
       
      And a million fanboys lost their minds.
       
      Now I suppose it's speculation time... Time period? Casting Boba?  And will this be one of the other films Alden has signed on to play  Han in?
      Do you want to see what he was up to pre-ANH? Or perhaps, have Disney rescue him from the sarlacc ala the Legends/EU and do something post-ROTJ?
      Bring Temuera back?
       
       
      Dun dun dun...
    • Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

      Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the sequel to Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the second part of the sequel trilogy. The film will pick up immediately from the end of The Force Awakens with many cast members returning to reprise their roles.
      The title was officially announced on 23rd January 2017.
    • The Weird and Wonderful names of Star Wars

      A promotional tie-in for Solo: A Star Wars Story has introduced us to some great new characters we can expect to see, including the fantastically monickered Therm Scissorpunch, a crustacean-like alien with huge lobster claws for hands.
      But despite being derided as the dumbest name in Star Wars, Therm Scissorpunch is actually quite in-keeping with tradition if you only look a little.

      First up is everybody's favourite death stick dealer: Elan Sleazebaggano frequented the clubs of Coruscant before he left to rethink his life in Attack of the Clones. Although later retconned to Sel’Sabagno, Sleazebaggano is typical of the tongue-in-cheek naming convention we often see with background characters in Star Wars.
      Did you ever hear the tragedy of Notluwiski Papanoida? This background character appears in Revenge of the Sith in the corridors of the theatre. The name Notluwiski isn't too bad until you realise who the actor is: it's a cameo by George Lucas.
      Sith names also seem to be chosen for their thinly veiled meanings. Darth Maul was trained to be a weapon, and was named after one. Sidious has an unavoidable similarity to the word “insidious”, which means to act in a subtle but harmful way; much like how Palpatine chips away at the old Republic. Even Plagueis has connotations of ill intent.

      In The Clone Wars animated series, Count Dooku takes a secret apprentice with the not too subtle name of Savage Opress. There are no prizes for guessing what his endgame is.
      It would be easy to see these seemingly ridiculous names as a feature of modern Star Wars movies, but they are present in the classic Star Wars trilogy too.

      Return of the Jedi is full of interesting characters, like the elephant-like Ephant Mon, Droopy McCool of the Max Reebo band, and let's not forget Jabba the Hutt’s jester Salacious B Crumb. And if individual characters aren't enough for you you could always speak to Admiral Akbar, a member of the aquatic Mon Calamari species.
      Perhaps Starkiller was a bit too on-the-nose for the boy who destroys the Death Star, but these other names do make you wonder why they bothered to change it to Skywalker!
       
      We eagerly await the release of Therm Scissorpunch: A Star Wars Story.
       
      In the meantime, Solo: A Star Wars Story debuts on 25 May 2018 in the US and 24 May in the UK.
