Disney Announces Young Aunt Beru Spinoff Film
Actually, it would be kinda cool if they got Joel Edgerton to come back as Owen.
Weren't they going to do a Boba Fett movie too? Whatever happened to that?
Everyone's laughing at Disney but Disney's laughing to the bank!
I think the writer/producer/director on that account flaked out.
The aunt Beru spin off is a joke. It has to be some internet gag thing. The most insignificant character with probably no more than 15 minutes total screen time from the movies. **** while were at it, how about a spin off with the Bith musicians in star wars canteena showing how they got turned down from every major galactic record company and ended up gigging on some back water planet.
Yes, The Hard Times is a parody site, similar to The Onion. Here's another one of theirs from July:
Next Star Wars Spin-Off Tells Origin of Giant Yellow Letters Flying Through Space
For an adult. That was never what it was about. I would love the changes you just laid out. A 10 year old would hate this movie.
My 8 year old self loved that Han was a hero. I loved the Ewoks. And I loved the Luke and Leia were siblings, and she and Han were a couple.
We adults have Empire.
Moisture farming with Jennifer Lawrence? I'm in.
Now, I gotta go, uh, stand alone!
Exactly! I felt exactly the same way when I saw the film at ten years old in 1983. It was my favorite Star Wars film for a number of years.
I actually think the original film was more adult than The Empire Strikes Back. Numerous deaths (including a beloved main character and innocent family members), blood, Han was a drug-dealing murderer in league with galactic gangsters, greater realism, Vader was more ruthless and not yet the sanitised father he became by ESB, and none of the main-characters were puppets.
Good point. Too many people call Star Wars a simple adventure movie, but it was quite dark.
For all of its fantasy and fairy-tale narrative, Star Wars also had a markedly gritty Western genre element/inspiration which was almost entirely dispensed with in all subsequent sequels, prequels, and spin-offs (not to mention scenes of political intrigue aboard the Tantive IV and the Death Star). The Empire Strikes Back was almost pure fantasy in its narrative and stylistic elements.
I always loved that "Sergio Leone in space" feel in the original.
(especially the "Gonk" one)
Good points. But I have to disagree with Vader as the sanitized father in ESB. He kills everybody for little reason, with slow, painful deaths. He tortures Han just to draw Luke out, and freezes him in carbonite. Vader sells out Leia and Chewie to a bounty hunter, stabbing Lando in the back. He psychologically and physically tortures his own son to try and turn him evil.
Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi movie to film in early 2019
I never can tell if these youtube vids are official or fan made?
Tony Horton just posted a picture to his Facebook/Instagram of Ewan McGregor doing P90X with an Obi-Wan beard and haircut.
(p.s. this has nothing to do with anything necessarily but it was shared on /r/starwars so I thought I'd toss it here )
I saw that too but those scenes were taken from this movie, he played Jesus in the desert. ha
Last Days in the Desert (2015) - IMDb
If that were an actual trailer, the film looks incredibly boring.
