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!

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."

      Lucasfilm and Disney have big plans to continue the saga across all forms of media, but for many of us it is these blockbuster hits that are the most anticipated.
      This list will be updated regularly to show details of the upcoming instalments of the Star Wars saga on the big screen.

    • 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.

      Release Date
      Star Wars Episode IX is currently set for release on 20 December 2019.
      Disney had initially announced the release date as 24 May 2019, but this was pushed back due to production delays.
       
      Production
      Principal photography began at Pinewood Studios near London on 1st August 2018, and is expected to complete in February 2019. Some scenes have also been filmed in Wadi Rum, Jordan.
      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 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.

      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 and The Last Jedi will be used to allow the inclusion of Leia.
    • Star Wars: Episode IX

      Star Wars: Episode IX is the final episode of the Star Wars sequel trilogy.

      Star Wars: Episode IX is set for release on 20 December 2019.
    • Untitled Cassian Andor live-action series

      So it looks like the new Disney streaming service (creatively named Disney+) will be adding a second live-action Star Wars show to its lineup.
      Joining the in-production The Mandalorian will be a series focusing on Rogue One's Cassian Andor. (So obviously this is a prequel).
      https://www.starwars.com/news/cassian-andor-live-action-series-announced
       
      Having sort of a SW spy thriller sounds like it could have good potential.  Plus there is the possibility of more K-2/Alan Tudyk. So I'M IN.
    • Star Wars - Resistance

      Just wondering if anyone watched (the premiere was Monday night on the Disney Channel; I haven't had a chance to see it yet myself) or is planning on watching?
      I know it's getting a lot of negative fan feedback because it's a "kids' show".  (Though it is strange it's on at 10 pm.) But come on, it's not like the rest of SW is all mature adult stuff.
      Or for the anime style. But I think it's kind of refreshing, to be honest, sets it apart from Clone Wars and Rebels.
       
      Anyway, here is the link to the StarWars.com page.
      And a couple trailers.
       
      I admit, when it was first announced, I was on the fence about it. Being a different animation style I'm used to. (Which is silly).
      But then I realized, heck, it's Star Wars, I know I'm gonna watch it anyways.
