Did Carrie Fisher die … ?
Really, I can’t find any mention of it whatsoever on The Register.
I just thought it was everybody else’s imagination.
From those of us who did notice, RIP, Ms Fisher.
Disney CEO Bob Iger has told a conference that the company is contemplating “what could be another decade and a half of Star Wars stories. Iger dropped that tantaliser at the SCALE: The Future of Tech and Entertainment event in Los Angeles on Thursday. Iger's talk was witnessed and chronicled by entertainment industry bible …
"Star Wars XVIII: The Batt.... Just hand over your money, you know you're going to"
Yes, too true. I'm not necessarily saying that Disney are going to milk this franchise for all it's worth, but I fear for the future, and fear leads to anger...anger leads to hate...
Star Wars Episode XXXIV: 101 Ewoks
Star Wars Episode LXXXII: Han solo and the Seven Jawa
Star Wars Episode CXXXIII: Beauty and the Wookie
Star Wars Episode CCLXXXVIII: Dumbo Strikes Back
Hush up and just accept that Han "I can make the Kessel run in 12 parsecs" Solo somehow has abilities to warp time and space that nobody else in the galaxy has.
Hmmm, warp time and space? I'm smelling a Star Wars and Dune crossover--"Han Solo: Guild Navigator". Please, PLEASE, nobody tell Disney about that.
"Who is Hans Solo?"
He's the guy that rode the Millennial Falco (#) in a video I owned once. I think "Princess Lay-er" and "Look Skywa*ker" were in it as well.
I'm not sure it was an officially-endorsed spinoff.
(#) A tribute act born too late to remember "Rock Me Amadeus" when it first came out.
I agree with this.
My fiancee's 14 year old sister loves Star Wars. This in itself baffles me, as when I was her age no girls at all liked anything sci-fi. Especially in deepest darkest Birmingham. But as a Christmas treat for her I took her to see Rouge One. She enjoyed it, I just sat there wondering what the hell was going on.
But it's all about the money, and they'll whore Star Wars for as much cash as they can get out of it at the expense of a coherrant story line etc.
Yes, whereas the originals were a charity project from our generous benefactor Mr Lucas.
Honestly? I can't think of many statements more ridiculous than "I won't watch X film because they are trying to make money.".
You really need to stop taking yourself and your Ninja-level Sci-Fi appreciation so seriously.
You'll be forced to watch it whether you want to or not. The first two weeks you walk past the cinema and they try to coax you inside, "no" will mean "no". Then they'll subtly change the way the pavement works so that putting one foot in front of the other will still lead you into the foyer where heading for the door labelled "Exit" will actually lead you into the theatre. You should have faked an asthma attack and been carried out by an ambulance crew.
I've actually quite enjoyed the last 2. They were both 'remove your brain's handbrake and enjoy the ride to the bottom of the hill' type stuff. However, massive overkill awaits. I'm expecting 'The Ewok Story' about a strong female lead Ewok who has some kind of epiphany. Or 'Admiral Ackbar : Origins' about how he managed to escape the shrimping net to rise to the top of the rebel fleet.
"The CEO also said that recently-departed actor Carrie Fisher will not be digitally resurrected in The Last Jedi and that the scenes that she shot and the film's plot will remain unaltered."
So, given that they killed off Han Solo in the last SW film, I would guess that they had already planned and filmed killing off Gen Leia.
That then leaves the 3rd "new" SW film to bump off Luke and then it completes the entire original SW cast history.
Just some "spin off" films to add in a bit of back story and maybe some extra content to give us some "treats" on how Tarkin got so high up, how about a training film for Stormtroopers, and film of how to build a Millennium Falcon, though there is already a Haynes manual for how to fix one !!

If you haven't read it, Tarkin [the novel] is presented as flashbacks, but could make a good movie.
Maybe they can figure out how to digitally de-age the late Peter Cushing, that would be cool.
I just checked to sustain this comment because otherwise I really really did not want to but the release of Star Wars video games pretty well tracks the release of each movie. Every video game (almost) gets tired after 18-24 months so the need to come out with a new game drags the movie production line by the nose along with it. And of course the production values. It became more blatant with each of the Terminator movies that the graphics and dialogue and a lot else besides were actually designed to cut and paste into the video game.
Then of course there's the product franchising which is Disney's forte AND new rides at their theme parks. And so it goes on.
They will be making Star Wars movies a century and more from now. Eventually they will make a couple of real stinker (low boxoffice - that's the only quality that matters) movies, and then they will stop for 10-15 years before they do a reboot. Rinse, Repeat.
Eventually all of these big money franchises will be remade.
