All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

Make any SW film they want but everyone should know this... no future SW film will ever make anything near as much as The Force Awakens made. They may not even make as much as The Last Jedi makes.

I hope Disney don't think that these films will be mega massive blockbusters that we've associated SW films to make so far. Will be a lot lower, maybe some even failing to make profit at all.

Anyway, life's too short to be miserable about more of these films, which is the point. We have more Star Wars entertainment to brighten up our lives - be fucking happy!

... Yes, I'm talking to myself.

I'll be very shocked if this trilogy ever comes to fruition. It doesn't matter if this is a different story set in a different corner of the galaxy; Disney is never going to be comfortable with anything remotely Game of Thrones-y. So this is yet another example of Kathleen Kennedy/Lucasfilm hiring a beloved creative voice while expecting them to deliver a product that's nothing like the work that made them famous.

Just because the writers adapted a Game of Thrones source novel doesn't mean that these films will be like Game of Thrones.

George C R Tolkien whatsisface has buggered off now.

These writers are on their own.

somehow they managed to make the show even rapey-er (rapier?) than the books. but don't worry, disney's got ron howard stashed away in the broom closet to come in and make these films safe for the world.

Have you seen Princess Leia in that slutty gold bikini? :wink:



seriously, though, have you seen Rogue One???

sure, no tits and ass, but it had an edge, and it killed off all everyone. plus, that last scene with Darth Vader was downright fucking brutal. Why is it such a stretch to think that the GoT bunch can't mine that same tonality and maybe even push it a little further?

I feel like Rogue One is as far as they're going to push it, and those characters didn't have as much moral ambiguity as people like to pretend they did. I know this makes sense to Lucasfilm on paper because Benioff and Weiss have proven that they can work within someone else's mythology and their TV show has gotten increasingly bigger and more cinematic in scope. It's just that Game of Thrones is the only thing these two have made, and I can't see any Star Wars Story approaching that. But I could be wrong.

Game of Thrones has:
-Intense family drama
-Various factions killing each other for control of power
-An endless history of wars between these factions
-Numerous unlikely heroes
-Mysterious magical forces at play in the narrative
-Seemingly crucial characters that die early in the story
-The rise of children to main character heroes and villains
-Humor that works best when it is the most sarcastic
-Character arcs that show more heary/depth to the characters than we are led to initially believe
-A diminutive hero who drops quotable bits of wisdom every time he speaks
-Young children ordered (and subsequently) killed by a ruthless villain

Yeah, these guys will do just fine.

Yeah mate, that's just themes. That don't represent that these are good enough writers alone though and that they can weave great plot, dialogue, action scenes, character development etc. etc. based on their own talents and skill.

Much of the great story that came from the Game Of Thrones TV series was based on what was already given to them from the books NOT written by them, so they already had established quality to work from.

This is Star Wars, where stories have to come fresh from the screenwriters, they got no George Martin holding their hands like he did the talentless Beatles who couldn't even play a guitar properly between the lot of 'em.

You call it that these guys will be fine? Well where is your crystal ball that shows this then? Prove it to me, Mr Soothsayer. Until then you got nothing.

It's better you don't post in this thread. Or in this place. Or at all. Draw a fucking crayon picture whilst you dance in pink ballerina tights. That should be your contribution to art.

they also both have characters of mysterious and surprising parentage.
and major characters who don't realize they are related to each other.
just imagine how the Luke/Leia kiss on Hoth would have turned out if the GoT guys had written it.
by the time of ROTJ, they'd be full-on Jaime/Cersei, with a bunch of rotten jedi kids who would've made Kylo Ren look like a choirboy by comparison.

No... That's how George Tolkien the novel writer would have written it. Those screenplay goons just copied what he wrote. They have no minds of their own.

Like you, evidently.

now THAT is a Star Wars movie I'd like to see. same "universe", different viewpoint. what is the typical body count of these movies, anyway? not just hundreds but thousands, sometimes millions. StarWars movies kill "people" left and right, blasting them into bits, impaling them or chopping their parts off by light saber, or vaporizing them as their planet is blowed up. why pretend this is some kid-friendly environment? this is a universe every bit as nasty and cut throat and crude as ours, so why are these killers are going to be hung up on speaking like choir boys and committing to celibacy?
