so Zack Snyder of being Zack Snyder fame is directing a Star Wars movie, but it'll be like a Star Wars side story, but they're not calling it Episode VII or VIII or IX

and basically it'll be the Seven Samurai but in Star Wars which actually sounds kind of fucking great

what do you guys think? should it be with jedis or smugglers or both or what's your ideal set-up here

edit: NO HE ISN'T HE'S TOTALLY DENIED EVERYTHING YAYA IS BASICALLY USELESS AT POSTING NEWS

    I like the idea of Star Wars having more movies, and being that George set the bar so low with the prequel trilogy, I am excited for what this + the new trilogy can bring.

    I definitely think it's interesting that they're going back to the ripping-off-Kurosawa that the series started with, and Snyder could certainly do some cool lightsaber action scenes, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

    A great idea.

    So great I kind of wish it was from a better director.

    Coincidentally, I just found this fairly amazing youtube playlist: 125 Random Star Wars spots and promo vids.

    I have no idea what I'd want out of a Snyder movie, though.

    I have never seen Seven Samurai

    I assume this will be a reasonable enough facsimile that I won't have to see the original (if this is not rumor)

    I actually think Snyder-fights with lightsabers would be a huge step up from the prequels

    Snyder issues aside the dude can choreograph a beatdown pretty darn well

    So they're making a seventh movie based on the Seven Samurai and The Magnificent Seven, yet specifically not calling it Episode VII?

    I am excited by the prospect of Extended Universe movies.

    The best star wars books were ones that had passing if any mentions of the Skywalker and Solo families. It's a cool universe! Use the existing lore to make something rad!

    Snyder's not working on Episode VII. This is one of the spin-off's. Now all we need is Joe Johnson to get his Boba Fett movie green lit.

    For what it's worth, Episode 7 will have already been out before this, it seems. This will not be part of the numbered sequence of primary storyline.

    Lose the smuggler. This needs soldiers, mercenaries and Jedi/Sith.

    I've said this before, but Jedi are the most boring part of Star Wars

    They're fine as part of the greater universe, but they make terrible protagonists on account of they're all emotionless chaste space monks

    Like, in the Original Trilogy this wasn't an issue because Luke wasn't even a Jedi until like the last half of ROTJ, and even then he wasn't like the prequel Jedi because he still liked fuckin', but with the prequel Jedi it's terrible especially because the supporting characters who they primarily interact with are all faceless Clones who are also inherently unrelatable.
