6th February 2013

Disney have announces that as part of their ongoing continuation of the Star Wars film franchise they are to make films that expand the universe and concentrate on individual main characters, Yoda being the first.

Clearly inspired by the success, and probable continued success, of the series of films inspired from the Avengers comics, Disney will produce the films based in the star wars universe that look at the individual characters so we can look forward to Han Solo The Movie, Luke and Lia The Movie, and one a number of fans might like, Boba Fett The Movie.

These will be alongside the sequel trilogy that will be made, the first of which will be directed by J.J. Abrams and the first will be released in 2015.

Yoda will be the first to get the stand alone treatment, although there is no word on where this will fit into the overall picture, or during what time line it will take.

Best guesses are a couple of ideas, one to fill in the gap between Episode III and when we first meet him in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back which means the whole film wil be based on the swamp plant of Dagobah.

There is no reason why there couldn't be a few flash back in the film, but for all intense and purposes Yoda was supposed to be alone on this planet before Luke turned up for training, so it could be hard to fill in a full 2 hour movie?

The other is more inline with the X-Men origins style and look at where Yoda came from and how he came into existence, this would be a more interesting movie, and as he's meant to be in his mid 800's in Episode 1 this would be going way back into Star Wars history, and possible leave more a blank sheet for what to do.

Whatever happens lets hope that Disney stay true to the universe, at least as much as Lucas has, and we start getting films that fans as much as , well the original trilogy at least.

1st November 2012

Despite the surprise yesterday that Disney is buying LucasFilms from George Lucas for 2 1/2 billion, which will include the license to all the franchises that the production company owns, it wasn't really that much of a surprise, and it could have been predicted.

Not long ago it was reported that Lucas wanted to retire, to leave the Hollywood blockbuster behind and maybe concentrate on smaller budget films like his recently produced film Red Tails, this is a large chunk of change to do that.

Lucas has always had a good relationship with Disney, just go to a theme park and see the level of Star Wars merchandise for sale, and the infamous Star Tours ride which was opened in 1987 and got a major revamp in 2010.

So in the end it was Disney who have purchased LucasFilms rather than maybe the more obvious studio, 20th Century Fox but the real question has to be the continuing production of it's most loved franchises, well both of them anyway.

First off is the Indiana Jones franchise, directed by Steven Spielberg and funded and released by Paramount, will future episodes 1) still have the involvement of Paramount, not really a big issue, or 2) be directed by Spielberg? Or star Harrison Ford? Disney are know for cashing in on big film names, see Aladdin, Cars, Beauty and the Beast to name a few, and maybe fans have something to worry about.

Now lets address the one on all our minds. At the press conference it was almost instantly announced that there will be a Star Wars Episode VII (7) released in 2015, oooh, that's big, and scary, and with Lucas taking an back seat, although he has an advisory role, what will happen.

Lucas may have tarnished the Star Wars franchise with the prequel trilogy, but above anything else he was very true to the franchise, and the universe he has created, he clearly has a lot of affection for all things Star Wars and despite not doing the best job possible a lot of love and attention went into the films, that in difficult narrative circumstances tied the films into the original series, and the characters were also true to it.

Star Wars Episode VII possibly isn't the concern, Disney also announced there will be an Episode VIII in 2017 and Episode IX in 2019 this is more worrying and anything beyond that are clearly frightening.

Star Wars has been with us since 1977, there has been 6 films of varying degrees of quality, but it has millions and millions of fans worldwide who still love the series, Lucas shattered some of our dreams in 1999 with Episode I, but those dreams have been repaired over time, we either forget them or learn to love them, is Disney about to totally destroy our dreams? When all has been said and done what I really want to know is, did Disney get the 1977 Star Wars Holiday Special in the deal and will they now release it onto Blu-ray?

26th May 2012

It's 35 years since Star Wars made it debut in the US, it opened in Manns Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles (and actually 31 other locations across America), and people queued around the block to see it.

The legacy of the original has been immense and still to this day the Star Wars series of 6 films is one of the highest grossing movie series of all time, behind only Harry Potter and James Bond.

1977 opening of Star Wars in LA

The franchise hit mass criticism and lost some of it's appeal after the 1999 release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace which was to explain the back story of the popular villain Darth Vader, but all it really did was anger fans because it was frankly quite naff.

The disappointment of the new trilogy of films angered fans more because a few years previously Lucas had messed with the loved original trilogy adding new special effects and scenes, fans preferred the original theatrical release, especially the changed Jaba The Hut scene and the now infamous Gredo shoots first scene.

Despite all this Star Wars is alive and well, and in truth us fans still love the series, the new films got better as the series went on and we all hope and prey for the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special to be released on Blu-ray some time.

26th October 2011

"We need this like a hole in the head" comes to mind when I think of the Star Wars Saga in 3D but George Lucas has felt the necessity to release the once loved film in yet another format at the cinema to try and get more money from the franchise.

Thinking about it maybe the prequels will be better with a 3D make over (seriously they weren't that bad were they?).

Hands up those who wanted this next incarnation, well next February you get your wish when Episode 1 of the saga gets re-released in theaters in 3D, you can both put your hands down now.

For those interested here is the trailer.

21st March 2011

It's good to see that filming of The Hobbit has started after what seems like an endless stream of delays from copyright issues to ill health from the director.

The journey so far has been well documented and includes scripting issues, rights issues, director issues but the film is in the right hands and come Christmas 2012 we should be enjoying the first of the 2 movies.

The original films were an unknown quantity at this stage of production, and little known director Peter Jackson was spreading the word as much as he could that he was making the Lord of the Rings trilogy, no one could have anticipated how the film would re-write cinema history.

Hype for the two new films will reach fever pitch, anticipation will be higher than Star Wars Episode 1, but Jackson is a better director than Lucas and the feeling that these films will be nothing short of amazing is strong.

There is still a year and nine months until we get to see the films but expect the first production still soon and no doubt video vignettes and diary's to keep us interested. The original films had a web cam on set at the Hobbiton village; I'd like to see that return.
