On the other hand, Star Wars would be complete shit if all it had was a great plot and writing.

^ Nah in the Orginal Star Wars, we hardly had a 2 minute slow lightsaber fight and yet thats possibly the most epic movie of all time.

Also I wouldn't want a new show to cheapen the idea of a Lightsaber fight. (I dnt count all the saber fights in clone wars since end of the day its just a cartoon)

In the original star wars you had dudes running around firing guns that shot lasers at people and huge space battles with explosions and dozens of ships everywhere.

People tend to forget that the greatest appeal of the original star wars was.... dun dun dun, it's special FX. It was the original "blockbuster popcorn film". A movie with incredible effects and costumes and an epic musical score, with a shallow plot and one-dimensional characters. That's A New Hope, in a nutshell. Things didn't start getting at all complicated until halfway through Empire Strikes Back, with Yoda's teachings and the plot twist with Darth Vader's revelation.

People tend to forget that, though, that the OT as a whole reached the fame it has because it was the original Michael Bay big budget sci-fi film.

Nostalgia is a hell of a drug.

But still ANH had only a limited number of FX shots... Can't be the only reason people lined up for days to see it. 2001 didn't have that, CE3K didn't have that, The Black Hole didn't have that... must be a bit more than just FX.

Anh had a huge number of special fx shots.

Everytime you saw a ship flying through space, thats an fx shot. Every time you saw r2 d2 walking around, or a jawa with its glowing yellow eyes, or a wookie, or a guy shooting a gun, or even just charact
ers standing around with some beeping, flashing monitors in the background, those are all "special fx shots". And the ot had more of those shots, and they were more eell done, than in any other movie up until that point. At the time of the 70's and early 80's, star wars was the avatar of that

I wouldn't consider R2 an effects shot.... he was a tin can with aguy in it conrolling it. Jawas were people in costumes with lights on their face masks. That has nothing to do with FX, it has to do with vision.

Other wise Ben Hur, Cleopatra, Good the Bad and the Ugly, The Godfather or any film playing in another time or place than the present here and now could be considered an FX film.

SW was visionary, Lucas had created a whole world that appealed to a large audience. And that showed in FX shots, costumes, location, props, music etc etc... And all that was wrapped in a documentary style of filmmaking that made SW look real and realistic (a rusting landspeeder, a crappy Millennium falcon). THAT is what made SW stand out... not JUST the FX.

Had a much bigger effect on popular culture than Avatar has had. I cant even remember what those Avatar aliens are called..

People just fell in love with the Universe Lucas had created. As well as the characters. How many heroes after that movie were clearly Han Solo copies?

And all 3 of the main characters had depth. Whilst Obi-Wan and Vader were clouded with a mysterious past and powers which people also found appealing.

The effects were also stunning which just added to the movies epicness.

Agreed. They were a mere TOOL to tell the story.

Nowadays, people seem to think FX make the movie. You couldn't be more wrong. TF has a lot of FX, but it's crap. Movies like the Green Lantern and the Green Hornet have a lot of FX, yet they aren't really great. There are more examples of unmemorable FX movies than there are memorable ones.

Does not sound good. They should really leave time travelling out of SW. It never needed such nonesense to be good, even though all the other sci-fi shows needed and have used it to death.

This story also makes no sense. Why would they use time travel to stop Darth Vader from ever existing. Would it not make more sense to stop the Emporer??

A pretty easy task if you can time travel. Just go back to before he became Supreme Chancellor and warn the Jedi Council maybe???

No rocket science or massive adventures needed there!

They should just do vader and a secret apprentice or apprentices hunting down and killing the Jedi. With some smuggling etc. not this crap! Or instead of live action do a more violent mature cgi like SWTOR

That would be great! But I don't know why, but I feel that Ahsoka's presence in Star Wars the clone wars already has something to do with time travel or something like that.
Remember, "Always in motion the future is". And in the clone wars, every time we see Ahsoka's présence having an influence on Anakin (every time she "grew up becoming more a real jedi), Yoda is not far to witness the result of his action (him putting her as Anakin's padawan) as if he knew the importance of "influencing the choosen one" already.

So if the new Star Wars live show follow The clone wars line, it could be an alternative time-line of what would have happened if episode 3 was different...

I don't know yet what to think about it, but since I like most of The clone wars stuf, why not?

That will be the J.J. Abrams remake, no doubt.

After getting the early info on Star Wars 1313, I can't but help feel like the concept is similar to the promised show we were suposed to be getting.

Indeed. Guess that's the way to recoup the development costs so far.

Which frankly I am all for the notion. The non-passive medium seems to have seen an all new genre pop up in the wake of ND's Uncharteds, mostly UC3.

Seems like these kinds of "Interactive Cinematic Experiences" are on the rise, and personaly, if they can offer the cinematic flavor of film with the intimacy of the interactive medium at a 1/4th the cost you really can't go wrong.
