Plus, the animation looks HORRIBLE.  Check out Obi-Wan's "beard" in the last pic on the right on the first row of photos.
I just...think this is gonna tank, hard.
You think perhaps that if it does bomb that George Lucas may actually wake up to a healthy dose of reality?

I was talking to a friend of mine earlier, and the Clones Wars came up. We're both big fans of Star Wars and even we're at the point where we just don't care enough about it to see Clone Wars or the TV series

It's a damn shame. Perhaps if George Lucas dies someday whoever inherits the rights to star wars will allow people to make their own fan-made movies, kind of like New voyages. Someone needs to locate the Darpa Chief, Donald Anderson first though.

No, not at all.

You'd need to see the ones we told you to watch first anyway

Lucas is already more supportive of fanfilms than just about anybody else in the film industry. Hence TFN Theater still not being shut down, or the AtomFilms contest expanding its entry selection to include drama and not just parodies. As long as you don't charge for it, Lucas turns a blind eye and lets you have fun with it.

Yeah there's a whole bunch of Star Wars fan films out there.  Some have some great production value.

Chris could probably give you pages and pages of details on this very subject. He was involved with that scene for some time.

Personally, I really do hope that the rights pass to someone worthwhile when Lucas finally kicks it (as opposed to just staying in his estate). If Star Wars ever got a reboot by somebody who was actually COMPETENT, it could be one of the greatest stories ever. Annakin's descent into darkness should have been a modern epic. Alas...

Ah, memories.

The thing with Troops is that it actually put together a logical, funny story. Almost the antithesis of most fan fiction - which is why it was so good.

Even though it was an amalgam of Star Wars and the "real world", Ryan vs. Dorkman and its sequel are pretty cool. Not much on the story side, though. The Troops' "sequel", IMPS is pretty darn good, though they've been working on the second chapter FOREVER. But yeah, for the most part the fanfilms are full of slightly overweight actors in parks, basements, and high school gyms.

If they wanted to revamp the Star Wars story, they could get the Bioware writers from the Knights of the Old Republic together for an actual movie. Now that's how you tell a Star Wars story.

I quite liked KOTOR, but it wasn't Star Wars.

Um, that's kinda the point. You take the basic premise of Star Wars: Jedi, the Force, lightsabers, space battles, and blasters and throw it into a whole new story. It doesn't have to include Luke and Leia to be Star Wars. At least not for me.

Basically, yup.
He's not the only one. I personally don't see the prequels as cannon and I personally believe they are taking place in a universe alternate
to the original trilogy. I on the other hand really loved KOTOR. It was one hell of a great story that George Lucas couldn't think of on his best
day in the intelligence-enhancing machine.

KOTOR, to me, was more like...hm.
Well, I sort of imagine it as something someone who DID live in the SW universe might make up as a "fantasy" tale.
I just think Jedi are vastly overrated.  I'd rather see rebels and imperials any day.
I agree. The Jedi are much more interesting when they are portrayed as imperfect and capable of error.
