    Iger quote "Alan Horn and I read George’s outlines and decided we needed to buy them, though we made clear in the purchase agreement that we would not be contractually obligated to adhere to the plot lines he’d laid out."

    Iggy sounds excited here.... I wonder when he realized that his prized treatments had somehow turned to rubbish and they just had to go in a totally new direction? I can't imagine the pressure.

    I think the biggest mistake in not letting a single person write the whole story arc. In the OT, Lucas only directed one film but he wrote the entire 3 part screenplay and it made for a cohesive story arc as you would imagine.

    I agree 100%. Plain and simple example:

    The ending to Episode 7 and the intro to Epsiode 8 were so dissimilar that Mark Hamill called JJ to freak out about it. TFA originally concluded with Luke surrounded by floating boulders (to illustrate his mastery of the force) and that did not line up with RJ's disgruntled hermit version of our favorite former moisture farmer. To "correct" the error, the digital effects team went and removed the floating CGI boulders from TFA's final scene.

    Mark Hamill.

    'I was led to believe that I still had the Force and it was really strong in me.'

    More from Mark:

    "I said to Ryan, I said, "Jedi's don't give up. I mean even if he had a problem he would maybe take a year to try and regroup, but if he made a mistake he would try and right that wrong." So right there we had a fundamental difference, but it's not my story anymore. It's somebody else's story, and Ryan needed me to be a certain way to make the ending effective. That's the crux of my problem. Luke would never say that. I'm sorry. Well in this version, see I'm talking about the George Lucas Star Wars. This is the next generation of Star Wars, so I almost has to think of Luke as another character. Maybe he is Jake Skywalker. He's not my Luke Skywalker, but I had to do what Ryan wanted me to do because it serves the story well, but listen, I still haven't accepted it completely. But it's only a movie. I hope people like it. I hope they don't get upset, and I came to really believe that Ryan was the exact man that they need for this job."
