Burning Questions: Why Get Excited For More Star Wars?

Hey everybody.迈克尔·ç。here.

Leia & Han will return. Will it still be TLA?Isn’t it always the way that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone? I didn’t really appreciate as it was happening, but for a hot second there wasn’t any urgent need to talk aboutStar Wars

相信总有the dull murmur - this is the Internet, after all – but it seemed like every obsessive fan tribute had run its course from机器人鸡toFamily Guyto an entire documentary about obsessiveStar Warsfandom. It even felt like folks had started to have their fill of beating up on the prequels, especially after the team over atRed Letter Mediahad picked all the meat off those particular bones with their epic series of takedown videos.

但事实并非如此。卢卡斯出售的权利,就是这样。这就像在现场Jediwhere they open the gates at Jabba’s Palace to unleash the horrible monster, only there would be nothing to stop the beast this time. Who would get his or her own spin-off franchise? Boba Fett? The Millennium Falcon? Princess Leia’s hair buns? No speculation was too crazy or unfounded.

Since this looks to be the new reality, at least until the Sun explodes destroying the Earth, and with it theStar Wars特许经营,一劳永逸,也许你们中的一些可以解释为什么越来越多的续集的前景是一件好事帮帮我。还有什么用星球大战说?

Star Wars wraps it upwith tidy finales

我能想到的情节VI遗留下来的不残的故事构架返回的绝地武士。Everything looked to be tied up neat and tidy at that Ewok jamboree. “But wait!” I can here fans screaming. “The rebels only destroyed one space station. There are certain to be more clashes between the rebels and the remnants of the Empire!”

我不能得到我nto this talk. It’s the kind of thing you hear from people who put way, way more thought into this world than Lucas ever did. I don’t think it’s controversial to point out that theStar Warsuniverse was never imagined with much depth. It’s notGame of Thrones其中每一个客栈和山寨持有端的字符他的故事影响了主要剧情线索。这是视频队长的大片更新。该部队,死星,绝地武士团。作为证明的前传,这些都不是概念,从仔细检查的好处。这不是你可以迷路探索世界。这是一个世界里,各地的任何一个角落窥视揭示了由吐和灯光师磁带一起举行的木套。

而这并不是一件坏事!

Star Warswas飞侠哥顿重新想象与尖端特效和黑泽明健康的剂量。这是正确的把重点放在大局冒险的东西,而在剧情细节陷入困境。的结束Jedishould play as a total victory, not as cautious optimism heading into generations of continued warfare.

But this brings us back to the question: With no lingering character arcs, and without a detailed world left to explore, why do we need more Star Wars films? Beyond the inevitable mountains of box office dollars, that is.

我能想出的最好的是缺乏留下来讲述这个故事的本身,被激发的最好理由。每个人都喜欢巴顿奥斯瓦尔特最近的光荣Star Warsmonologue where he free-associated a plot for Episode 7 for minutes on end. The video is revealing, in that, if you think about it, JJ Abrams is in essentially the same position. Without any plot threads to tie up or any detailed mythology to be faithful to, he has free reign to tell pretty much any story he wants. Add to this the fact that the prequels have set the bar so low, the bare minimum of competence behind the camera is going to have the fanboys fainting in the aisles.

So it is to this to I pin whatever glimmers of anticipation I have for moreStar Wars。Abrams has a blank check to work with and after paying homage to theStar Warsaesthetic (a light saber here, an X-Wing there) he has a blank slate on which to paint. Maybe the way to get a really ambitious, big-budget sci-fi/fantasy movie to the screen is to smuggle it in under the nameStar Wars?

你的想法?Could JJ Abrams take this as an opportunity to do something amazing on a grand scale, or will we see the more likely scenario where the demands of fanboys and studio executives lead him to play it safe?

我不爱星际旅行,但我真的很佩服它。有一些真正华丽。。。庄严的(?)这件事。我会好奇,看看JJ艾布拉姆斯确实与星球大战的专营权。

Sadly, the original trilogy doesn't quite hold up for me as an adult . . . esp. since Lucas has tweaked with it (I can't look at the Yoda in Episode V). The prequels were embarrassingly bad. Hopefully Abrams can lend a sort of dignity to the stories.

I lost my love of Star Wars the franchise with the prequels. It isn't that I feel other movies won't or can't be good, but looking forward to them with the same level of excitement I have for a new episode of a television show that's occasionally enjoyable.

迈克尔·ç。: Probably something in the middle. This is J.J. Abrams, not a Terry Gilliam or a Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Rises was a complete disaster (though still keeping that odd mix of passion and dispassion in spite of it's disastrousness), for reasons I've gone into, but he's got a couple masterworks right now in Memento and The Dark Knight.) Abrams has revealed himself, at least cinematically, as a kind of bland work horse, not, currently, someone who has revealed he can be a great, masterful director like those other two. There's always hope, but I err on the side of caution.

I guess I fall into the fanboy category in saying that I'm highly anticipating these films. I do agree that ROTJ does work as a definitive ending to Star Wars but I also think exploring the post-Jedi SW universe could make for some intriguing stories and add a greater sense of weight to the Saga, overall (the prequels issue wasn't the story they were trying to tell but the way it was executed). Also, as you said, Abrams and crew aren't held to any particular story thread or end game like Lucas was with the Prequel Trilogy. There's room to take this universe in a lot of different directions.

alejandro -- i have the same problem with the original trilogy now (if they hadn't kept replacing them with do-over stuff - to me it's like colorizing black and white movies. NO) which is sad because they do hold a special place in my life like all people who were little kids when the movies first came out.

daniel -- see i think that "being held to a specific story" was the first bad decision Lucas made (among many to follow). that story would have been so much more thrilling if the main characters from the original trilogy were side characters and we didn't know how everything would turn out for the heroes as a result. It killed it for me from the get go in terms of "narrative"

Nathaniel - That actually would've been a interesting way to do things but Lucas kind of tried that with Episode I. Obi-Wan and Anakin were pretty much supporting roles, while Qui-Gon and Padme got the most screen time. Obviously fan expectations and Lucas own story interest got in the way. The fans expect to see their favorite characters front and center, while Lucas was interested in telling the tragedy of Anakin Skywalker.

前传的普遍反对那种基本的东西工作的概念,我们很多人喜欢约叙述。我们大多数人想知道接下来会发生什么。按照设计,但是,前传是关于如何和为什么(我知道这不是particulalry深刻,但包涵)。这类问题可以工作,如果你有他们背后的合适的人才,但卢卡斯是不是人才,当你在我提到的那些其他的东西混合,它可以是一个有点创意的噩梦。

此外,我不得不承认,我没有成为SW的粉丝,直到我看到了SE电影97' (我十一的时候)。我绝对明白为什么人们会不高兴他们 - 卢卡斯对DVD /蓝光的电影所做的进一步变化是真气的 - 但我永远也不会恨他们,因为他们让我的风扇。我们希望,迪斯尼将恢复在某些时候和球迷原来的电影 - 无论老少 - 可以看到电影,因为他们最初提出。
