    I can understand why Disney did this. They didn't want the old stories to limit them in the telling of their future stories. On the other hand, I can see why it was a real punch in the gut to fans who were emotionally invested in the old storylines and characters.
    I hear you...BUT...the cool thing about what people like Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni are in the process of doing is to take the best of the old stuff and bring it back to life. That's GOT to be exciting to the fans of the old EU / Legends stuff.

    IMO some of the German dubbing is better than the actual voices. For example Darth Vader (OT).

    THIS. Is, a great hot take!

    ROTS: Vader's scene after being FrankenPalpatined - in Spanish is based & sounds so Sith.

    Donde esta el Padme.
    Esta a salvo? Esta bien?
    Yo, no puede ser! Esta la viva lo senti!!

    Can confirm. Awesomeness for your ears.

    This is my preferred viewing style.... English at the jump till Padme cries.... then switch to ESPANOL from the Duel in the Chancellor's Office all the way to the end!

    Zack Snyder should direct a Star Wars property, preferably a PT mini-series for Disney Plus. I have a couple of reasons why I think this could work.

    Snyder is a director who loves his CGI, and that's not a bad thing! CGI can do great things, and I think Snyder's willing to embrace that potential of it to great effect...at times... Just look at how he captures the politics and alien-nature of Krypton in some of the opening moments of Man of Steel.



    That sort of aesthetic and detail is something a PT-era show could definitely put to good use.

    Next up is the cast. Snyder has an eye for casting unconventional actors for roles that end up perfectly fitting them. Ben Affleck wasn't anyone's first choice for a new Batman, but he ended up being one of the best onscreen Bruce Wayne's we've seen. His entire character (and beef with Superman) is summed up in opening of BvS to great effect. No one thought that Gal Gadot would make a good Wonder Woman, but she was people's favorite character post-BvS and has grown into the iconic role better than most other choices would have.

    Snyder's eye for casting goes hand-in-hand with his vision, and best be assured the man has one. I don't always agree with his vision, but I do respect it. And that's something that Star Wars needs more of - people with vision, with ideas, with plans on how the movies will shape the universe and how the universe will in-turn respond.

    After that, we have the fact that Snyder can bring out the best in his actors in surprising ways. Joe Morton and Ray Fisher's scenes in Justice League were some of the most powerful I've seen in pretty much any movie recently; as much credit as the actors have to bring that role to the table, This doesn't mean that his character directing is always stellar, but it does mean that he knows when emotional moments are and can nail them more than others can. At times.

    Star Wars would probably benefit from Snyder's eye for action also.

    Lastly is his storytelling. Snyder likes his long, drawn out stories. Many of his films have extended cuts. Polygon wrote a pretty interesting piece on that, so I'll link it below. But all of his films seem to benefit from added time that standard movies won't allow. But we're not in the age of movies anymore - we're in the age of streaming. And in the age of streaming, there's always a place for long-form storytelling like Snyder's cuts.



    Snyder would have to change some things to fit in the Star Wars world of course - his language, obsession with slow-mo action beats, his use of songs from modern day for movie moments, and dark settings would all have to be toned down at the least. But they all could fit in Star Wars as well. A slow-mo action beat with dozens of Jedi fighting their enemies would be awesome. The songs wouldn't really fit into the Star Wars world, but I could totally see Snyder tasking bands to come up with "Star Wars songs," and creating those for in-world bands. We got glimpses of this with Zeb playing the (space) guitar and Cal listening to headphones and music. Why not do something similar? The dark setting could help set the mood of the underbelly of Coruscant. And the language...well...so long as there aren't any F-bombs, I think he'd be fine.

    Snyder also would need a strong writer to boost his films. BvS & ZSJL were co-written by Chris Terrio, who isn't a bad writer, but certainly isn't the best.


    So yeah...Snyder for Star Wars when?
    (And ideally he'd bring along Junkie XL and/or Hans Zimmer.)


    Zack Snyder’s many director’s cuts are windows into his obsessions - Polygon
    Zack Snyder Loves Star Wars, But Doesn’t Think He Fits In Disney’s Universe (screenrant.com)

    EDIT - I forgot to add a point. Snyder's films seem to deal with the interactions between the normal and supernormal or paranormal. I think this is would be an interesting place to explore in the world of Star Wars, where what we would usually consider the "supernormal or paranormal" is simply normal. Does one turn it back into supernormal/paranormal? Or do we bring that world to those who don't see it that way? What Snyder would do with that divide is what interests me. Granted, he's not the only one who could do that, or even the best choice, but I'll save that discussion for another time...hehehe...

    Holy crap! What a great idea.... Snyder and Star Wars. In keeping with your PT related preference, I'd like to see Snyder flesh out Darth Plagueis: A Star Wars Story and I'd like it to be as close to the Novel as possible. My deathstick induced hope is that in the place(s) where the story needs to merge with Disney Canon, we learn that SNOKE is nothing more than Sidious cloning his old Master out of spite. If I can't have THAT, then I want Snyder top go back a thousand years to tackle Darth Bane and Zannah in Path of Destruction: A Star Wars Story.

    Oh Plagueis by Snyder would be dope! I can't speak for Bane and Zannah since I haven't read it, but I like where your head is at!

    Disney could make Snyder's take on the Legend, very real.

    Snyder would be perfect for directing Prequel-esque content.

    Take that however you want.
