I'm starting this thread for a simple what if forum. If George Lucas would ever let ANYONE do a true reboot, what would anyone want to see. Here are my ideas.
REALISTIC FILMING! I love Star Wars. Always have. I even like the prequels...to an extent. I think what hurt the films more so then the bad screen plays and so so acting was the fact that the films never came off as real. Although it's fantasy I want it to feel real and look real. That's why the old Indiana movies were so cool too. On site filming. The movies weren't 97% CGI like SW: ROTS. Make it real, as much as possible anyways. Maybe similar to what JJ Abrams did with Star Trek.
Start fresh, and start new. Darth Vadar and Luke are done with. Old story, thanks for telling it. Move on. A great place to tell this is to reboot it where there are TONS of stories to be picked from. Go back to when the Old Republic was. Show what true Sith and Jedi wars were like! If you want a story to tie into the current movies, what better books to make a trilogy out of......DARTH BANE!!!!!
They are deep, dark, and gritty stories. Yea, George Lucas may have to settle for a solid PG-13 rating and make the story a little less childish for a change, but at least for me...that's what a lot of fans have been waiting for. When we heard ROTS was gonna be PG-13 and dark and edgy, we were all like FINALLY! A kick ass Star Wars......Let down on that front.
My thoughts, Start new where you can branch off into other stories after Bane if you wanted to, but it ties in and explains the rule of two and shows how it used to be. Film it realistic. As much real live filming as possible, COMPLIMENTED, with CGI, not over done. Make it dark, edgy, and a serious story full of deep rooted emotion like the books had. Now that in my eyes, would be EPIC!
What's your thoughts on that or wants, wishes, dreams for a new Star Wars film if we could ever have one?
