By the way if you all have not seen the reviews of the prequels at Red Letter Media, stop what you are doing now and go watch them.

I clearly remember reading when the first movies were out that the plan was for three trilogies. Never thought I'd see it happen.

Give it up, you're not being appointed mod no matter how many sycophantic posts you make.

So... I'm confused... Are they making episodes 7,8, and 9 in chronological order? Do they take place after the death of the Emperor and follow Skywalker and all those characters or is this an independent trilogy that will take place in a completely different time period in the star wars universe?

Are those two stand-alone films really just about Boba Fett and Yoda? Am i correct in this?

7 8 and 9 are supposed to take place after Return of the Jedi.

The other films, the stand alone ones, will take place following those characters during whatever time period they wish.

I wish they'd make a Shadows of the Empire flick with Dash Rendar.

More is better. If Darth Maul didn't ruin it for you, its unruinable.

IMO Darth Maul was one of the best things about the prequel. Duel of Fates in ep 1 was pretty cool

I find it interesting that the majority of this discussion has been about the story line and not the cinema photography.

Is anyone else here, besides me, really curious how they're going to use the technical advances (3D etc..) as much as they are with the storyline?

I agree. Out of the prequels, he was one of the only bright spots IMO.

I actually wish they'd use less CGI and other technical stuff.

When I was discussing it with a friend recently my question to him was "who from the production team will be coming back?" So many people were involved with all six. Will they be interested or even invited back? It's hard to imagine Star Wars without guys like John Williams and Ben Burtt.

star wars fans, and cinema fans in general, want a riveting story. not to say there isnt a place for cinematography on a grand scale because it helps certain films (transformers, avatar) push the story. i'd rather have a basin in animatronics and less special effects/CGI (pipe dream). Movies like the Neverending Story had a good balance of glitz and story--albeit it didnt have to be citizen kane in its writing--it just had to captivate the viewer's imagination.

CGI is evil and lazy. Real puppets and real special effects every day of the week.

Interesting take, thanks.

I guess I was 20 when the original was released and at the time it was *the* ground breaking movie in terms of special effects.

That must taint my perspective on how I view the SW franchise.

CGI is cheap. It's going to be used in huge amounts on these flicks.

I don't mind some CGI and if used correctly, it is great. But in the prequels, it was overdone and just looked horrible IMO.

Overuse of CGI tries to make up for a weak story. It tries to create excitement where there isn't any. Instead of the legitimate suspense of trying to sneak around the Death Star or escape from Hoth, the new movies have an abundance of futuristic vehicle scenes that are supposed to impress you.

I don't think people hate Darth Maul as much as they hate the fact that his character was almost entirely useless and killed off in a completely silly way.
