    Again, comparing a film franchise (which has established appearances for their characters) to a play sequel to a book series (whose casting was approved by the kriffing author of said book series) is apples and oranges. Hermione's appearance in the films have no effect on this play. And it doesn't make it a remake!

    Even if the PT had not been filmed, the ST still could have been kickstarted.

    I think a Star Wars reboot is interesting on the theoretical level, but I definitely wouldn't want them making one. I was just thinking the other day how long-standing the Star Wars continuity has been. Sure, Disney rebooted the expanded canon, but from the original film onwards, everything has been one long, continuous chain. That's a refreshing change to me in a decade where, say, Spider-Man has been played by three different actors and Batman by two, with barely any breathing time between iterations.

    Add to all that the fact that the original trilogy, and indeed all of Star Wars, is an icon in its own right, and with that, I think we should keep the reboot question far from our minds. lol.

    Yeah the difference is that those other two you referenced are comic books so they are constantly being rebooted, retooled, etc. while Star Wars is NOT.

    I'm against the idea of rebooting Star Wars.

    The Star Wars original trilogy isn't a movie series. It's a work of art.

    You can repaint my front porch, but don't you dare repaint the Sistine Chapel.

    Star Wars itself is a work of art ... the only "Reboots" we see are re-canonizations of Legends material ..

    The only time I even consider this sort of stuff is when I wonder what the Star Wars Saga would've been like if they have been made chronologically.

    The OT being made in the late 90s/early 00s raises all sorts of interesting questions. How would've been cast? Would it still have been the story of Luke's quest to redeem Anakin? Would the tone have been the same, or would it have been influenced by the optimistic mood of the 90s and the escapist impulse of the early 00s?

    It didn't happen due to budgetary reasons and the ot was the cheapest to put on film so he condensed X - XII into VII - IX and kept that and the pt on the back burner until the tech was right so the pt literally couldn't have happened without the necessary tech that ended up creating the pt and Lucas only decided to make it because of Jurassic Park.

    Maybe I don't know enough about the history of all the permutations the Prequel Trilogy's story went through, but was it always meant to be as it was? Depicting the events of the Clone Wars? And would that really have required anything that was beyond what he was able to do with the OT? I know George has said that he waited to do the Prequels "until the technology was better," but I'm just at a loss to find anything from the Prequels that couldn't have been done without computers, other than the mindless clutter than choked so many of the shots.

    Yes it was...and it rewuired too many vfx shots that simply weren't possible at the time such as clones, the TPM stunts, etc...story wise, YES he could have done it then but he couldn't have told it visually in any appropriate way

    Lucas didn't make the PT simply with computers. A great deal of it was made without computers.

    But he did it because JP proved to him that his company was capable of creating the digital vision he was hoping for .

    CGI Clones and the choreographed stunts, were things many people found "inappropriate". Other movies of that time were sometimes better in the VFX department.

    There were earlier versions where the story was widely different and the pre Prequel EU picked that up. There were explanations why the galaxy was in decay in the OT(galaxy wide war), why droids are hated and clones banned (yeah they were the bad guys from theoutside), Vader was hunting Jedi. The EU, yep 2012 wasn't the first time it got ignored.. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/22/star-wars-prequels-return-of-the-jedi_n_3313793.html


    Lucasfilm is showing a huge interest in respecting the inherited stories. George Lucas reshot thing like the Han Shot first scene or retconned Obi Wan. I think Lucasfilm won't do the same mistake again. I'm not worried they will touch those again, they are working on other stuff.

    Oh well ok, those other movie guys put a lot of work in their film too, no need to talk down to them. Titanic,, ID4, Gladiator, 5th element, Blade runner, Alien LotR, Pirates, they all did a ton of world building and Star Wars itself used resemblance to real world environments to make it access-able for the general audience.

    Beside LOTR and Pirates, the other movies were good because of their world building within that ONE movie so they could easily be rebooted...the only world that had to be created was the world which works for those characters that we are suppsoed to care about...with star wars, it's a generational thing where, while it's been around for nearly 40 ish years, it's one giant continuity where other movies have to fit within what's alreayd been created and rebooting would be a complete waste of money as $4+billion has already been spent

    No, that is not what happened. If you look at the many rough drafts, they all resemble A New Hope to varying degrees (i.e., a space version of The Hidden Fortress). And the fact that Anakin wasn't going to be Darth Vader (both characters were seen alive as separate people in many drafts). And some early concept art showed Empire being labeled as "Episode II" or "Chapter II". And the earliest outline of prequels had FIVE movies before A New Hope (a prologue, a "Clone War trilogy", and a epilogue) and said outline was made during Empire's writing phase. And the fact that A New Hope didn't even have the Episode number when it came out in 1977 and didn't until the 1981 theatrical rerelease.

    Translation: the OT (at least A New Hope) came first since that was what was thought of first. The PT came later PERIOD.
