Reminder Zach will be back when Rian Johnson gets his Star Wars trilogy.

>Disney/Lucasfilm open casting call for the upcoming 'Star Wars Untitled Trilogy: Episode I'

so far disney has done a shit job with the franchise and i cant wait to see what they do with a new trilogy that isnt tied to the other characters and plots.

since all they do is just rehash the old movies anyways.

i would like to see them adapt the yuuzhan vong story into the next trilogy. even if they change things here and there it could make a half decent star wars trilogy.

the wars might be scaled back cuz of the violence but look at the clone wars arena battle. people got killed but wasnt super violent. still suitable for kids.

but alas, i think they will probably hire some disney/nick writers to make some sappy BS that most people will hate since it will basically be high school musical in space.

Auteur kino doesn't work for these kinds of movies. Prequels demonstrated this already. Also Ruin Hackson has proven he can't write something coherent without a million plot holes. But I'm OK with this the worse the movie the better the hackfraud review.

Again, I can't help but to stress that this is what the people hating Lucas wanted all these years, this is what they argued for. This is what Star Wars is now that Lucas is no longer the auteur of the series and setting. Star Wars is about gay niggers and dinosaurs. XD

One of the non-"diversity" hires probably read up on the sources of inspiration for Star Wars and thought the houses from Dune could fit into Star Wars.

http://www.moongadget.com/origins/dune.html

But while George took much from Dune it isn't all that SW is and houses doesn't work in the setting. Or maybe one of those faggots were just a fan of GoT, idk. If someone would seriously want to reproduce not just a facsimile but actually authentic new SW they would have to call Lucas, but barring that reading a ton of planetary romance, the western canon, Dune, Heavy Metal comics and so on is a must. Then you'd have to watch nipponese cinema and television, old serials, kino and who knows what else.

The biggest issue here is that these newfag writers are retards that have grown up with trash pop culture media and can't produce anything besides corporate marxist talking points and blatantly stupid and infantile shit that they regurgitate from reddit. Lucas came from a place of genuine creativity, he absorbed both pulpy trash and high brow stuff and they coalesced into something fresh.

As for sith stuff I don't really think it'll be any better than anything else they shit out, it'll just be offensively stupid. The dark side of the force spawned the first toxic white man and the light side countered with a homosexual sheboon or something.

Would be cool, you could make something really neat if you included parts of the Odyssey. But with the "talent" around these days there's just nobody around to make it, especially not under the direction of Disney. It's so sad that there's so much untapped potential that's just there but it won't get made. I mean, when it comes to visuals you could just open up just about any old comic and there's so much material you could use in there to build upon. You have these cretins like Kike Cucklasa saying that there's just no more stories to tell and things to do in the SW setting, but that's braindead nonsense. It's an excellent pastiche of myth and quality to low brow pop culture and that well is very deep.

You could take accounts of Atlantis, mash it together with some parts of Japanese culture, blend it with a couple of science fiction pulp stories and borrow some aesthetics and design elements from Moebius and you'd have something fantastic. If talented people are involved that is. It's ridiculous how many directions you could take it and how myopic the writers of the new material and films were, it's like all they can do is to badly replicate the original three films over and over again.

Btw, this is like a really low-T version of the Shadow of the Empire multimedia project. Lucas didn't have a film at the time as the prequels weren't being made yet, so his company basically did everything that went with releasing a new film; marketing, toys, novels, comics, video games and so on, but without the actual film. At the time Star Wars wasn't shit so it worked, it made a ton of money and fans loved it.

I doubt Disney will be able to reproduce that success, but here they are, desperately trying. If you look at that stupid whiteboard you'll know why they will fail, they don't actually have any passion for the material, they just want to cram as many homosexual niggers down your throat as possible. That room of soygoys and diversity hires won't produce storylines or designs that will sell toys or comics.

It's curious, but that didn't change after the prequels. There was a lot of goodwill towards the series even in the hyper-negative internet environment that sprang up right after the turn of the millennium. Those early youtube e-celebs are really grating to listen to now for most people, but we're still not out of that rut and even if Lucas hadn't sold the rights I'm not sure there is a place for the kind of sincerity that was such a core of Star Wars. Society is drenched in postmodernity and nihilism and in that environment nothing can grow.

When looking back at the saga that Lucas created it's hard not to be impressed, because even at the time he wrote those scripts things were pretty bad. And the wonderful thing about it was that it was so contagious, despite basically being an indie he got a lot of talent onboard, writers, artists and so on. Both for his films and for the expanded universe stuff. It's so easy to dismiss the entire thing as some ad for toys and that it's all just empty consumerism, but I don't think that's plausible considering just how iconic and big the films became in the West. Looking at the film industry today, it really seems that it was the last great sigh of that old American spirit, of Ford, of the pioneers that came to a savage and untamed land and made something of it.

That was a tangent, but I think that was a part of what made even secondary material such as Shadows of the Empire so likable and the EU at large. You can really tell that a lot of the people which worked on these things loved what they did and the same kind of authenticity that is present in the films also manifest in all good video games, books, comics and even toys. Because at the heart of it, what Star Wars is, is that escapist pulp comic/serial from the great depression taken to another level. This is why Disney can't produce more of it, not even EU tier material, they not only hate the audience for it but also look down on it, almost nobody who works there will buy into that idealized fantasy for even one moment.

It's funny, I've been reading this book on writing short fiction penned by a jewish editor of science fiction magazines, and one of the biggest things he asks would be writers to take home is that you must be excited by what you're writing. That if you're not passionate about what you're creating then how can you expect anyone else to find it interesting? Creative endeavors aren't things you can assemble through a formula and get good results, you have to be in love with your work. Back in the pulp days people kept sending in badly written trash to editors, they'd have read a bunch of stories and put together something with the same features. You've got a hero, you've got a crook and a story about the struggle of the hero. However, if you aren't invested in the story you're telling then you will not be able to fake it. Even with such a simple and proven plot formula as "An appealing character strives against great odds to attain a worthwhile goal" you would still not sell your story, because it's really transparent if you find it dull yourself.

On another tangent this same editor was bullied by the wife of another writer at a conference for science fiction writers, she wrote a story about a jewish dad whose daughter marries a really disgusting martian and he hates every moment of it. It's something I find amusing, that even such a seed for a story as being something to tease someone else with is enough to make it somewhat compelling to read. It's not a great story by any means, but it's something. It's really no surprise then that Lucas, when lucky enough to be given the budget, would put something together out of his many passions. He loves racing and he put that into TPM as this great pod racing sequence, he found Dune a great read and borrowed some things from it. So on and so on, he even put his dog in the films as a character ffs.

Anyway, that's what I think. You don't need some autistic lengthy video to nitpick the new trilogy of films (hello, MauLer) or look into the politics of the big corporate writer group that puts the new stories together to understand why nobody wants a Rey doll or why all new material is so terrible. The essence, the core of it, is all so clear.

If I remember correctly, they're making a Dune movie. Now, Dune isn't exactly what I'd call Optimistic, neither is the Warhammer 40k universe, but would a movie about either one with passion in mind come out as a huge success or are they too niche? Too narrow an audience? Would it be a monkey's paw wish where the movie - and thus the whole community - would become pozzed and "generalized" for wider, more politically correct audiences?

>Those early youtube e-celebs are really grating to listen to now for most people, but we're still not out of that rut and even if Lucas hadn't sold the rights I'm not sure there is a place for the kind of sincerity that was such a core of Star Wars. Society is drenched in postmodernity and nihilism and in that environment nothing can grow.

It may be more irony than nihilism. Nihilism is thrown around all the time these days in order to trash something. But it seems everything must either be dark and gritty and realsitic or ironic and camp these days. The Prequels were done with love and heart, and they did it without irony – they put the “opera” in “space opera” more than the OT; the dialogue is deliberately “operatic”, but it it isn’t done ironically or to be campy.

>In short, Dark Shadows has gotten the predictable postmodern treatment. The original series was deadly serious (as was the 1991 remake). There was nothing ironic about it.

<I wouldn’t brand this film as a “travesty” of the original series, because it’s clear that Burton and Depp had their hearts in the right place. It is meant to be a kind of affectionate parody. The problem is that Burton simply was not up to the task of dealing with this story. It’s a case of a very modern, ironic, postmodern director attempting to translate to the screen a story brimming with very unmodern romance, and genuine horror. The characters in Dark Shadows (the series, that is), really felt things. They felt true passion, obsession, and terror. They were open to the possibility of true love. They felt the weight of history, and the presence of the uncanny. I don’t think Tim Burton has ever felt any of those things.

It's funny how the whole "angry internet guy" thing seems so passe now. It was a kind of adolescent phase for the internet, and it seems people would rather hear from enthusiasts who know what they're talking about than any old moron who can post a "rant" now.

Ah, so they want to pay SAG-AFTRA base rates again?

Hard to say at this point. Villeneuve clearly loved Blade Runner and his sequel to it was a massive flop, however, both the original Blade Runner and the Dune film by Lynch were also failures at the box office. In the case of Lynch he tried to do his best, but I think he was too niche and the studio meddling doomed the film, if it ever had any chance of success otherwise. It's sort of interesting since Star Wars did so well and they're very close to one another.

I would say that the irony of postmodernity and nihilism have the same root cause, an underlying spiritual death that goes deeper. A sort of general loss of meaning and purpose, a great dissolution. It's very corrosive, because when you create something in that mode it never turns out right, it makes you creatively impotent.

>The Prequels were done with love and heart, and they did it without irony – they put the “opera” in “space opera” more than the OT; the dialogue is deliberately “operatic”, but it it isn’t done ironically or to be campy.

Indeed, they are very sincere films. I have been preoccupied with this for a long time, I think that article by Counter Currents hits the nail on its head, not sure why you used an archive link, the site deserves clicks and I do frequent it from time to time already.

I have another example to share, bundled with a short story by Clark Ashton Smith, http://www.castaliahouse.com/the-abominations-of-yondo/, that follows similar lines. It's a brief read, but it's so illuminating to contrast to the drivel being penned today. You have here someone who cares about his craft and is quite skilled, and he writes a story that he would like to read and it's great. Much further back in time you you had theater that was more akin to ritual, where actors embodied gods at play, some were retellings of their history and great victories past. It doesn't get more serious and authentic than that, and so the plays had staying power.

When it comes to culture today that must be the great struggle, to regain authenticity and sincerity. To achieve a state of being in accordance with logos, truth, and produce something genuine. Even with but a smidgen of what we had in the past we could create great things, if there were anyone that would publish and fund them in this day and age that is. That must be the other aspect to it, the powers that be want us demoralised and apathetic. If we regained, as Kenneth Clark would say, our confidence, it wouldn't sit very well with them. It's funny when actually said or typed out, but in a way Star Wars became a national mythos of sorts in America and to the children and teens that watched the saga, maybe even some adults, it gave them a renewed sense of clarity and purpose. There's a lot of didactic stuff and moral themes in there.

While we are somewhat past that stage it still lingers, I have found, and a lot of people have taken much of it with them.
