    That happened to me in May of 1999.

    This is really funny. If anyone has seen the Star Wars Holiday Special, then you know how bad it was. One of my favorite web sites, wrestlecrap.com, did its annual non-wrestling holiday entry on it at my suggestion.

    Here is the link:

    Enjoy.

    Why can't thay let Kevin Smith make a sequel Trilogy instead. Since I was 10 yrs old I've been waiting for 9, that's 9 Star Wars films. As per anouncements in 1980. Then suddenly it was 3 then 6 and now it's 6 and a tv show. Come on George Give us 3 more movies let someone else direct them and write them and sit back and watch the money roll in. (obviously his favourate pastime) Give Hamill, fisher and Ford 3 films where they are old and cranky and not cleaning up little Awful Annie's mess.

    If that rumor is true,then it will probably be after Episode 6,since we are going to see Mark Hamill (Luke) himself poping out once in a while.

    I keep having a bad feeling about a Star Wars series, even if I often like series better than movies, Babylon 5 is the perfect example of that. If they do make a Star Wars series, I hope it's up to the level and beauty of Babylon 5. That will be really difficult though. I also hope it's after episode 6, which it sounds like it may be.

    Wowowowoowwow!!!!!!!
    I have a mix feeling about this,i love Kevin Smith i really do,but as comedian and a director of comedian movies (those heavy flicks like Jersey girl were good but a bit heavy for me).

    Now there's no other person on this earth that know star wars better then him (Do you the Alliance killed innocent civilians on the death star when it blew up? lol).

    Well,this should be interesting

    Some would tell you that Jar Jar was "The Fool" or "The Idiot" sidekick archetype in the Hero's Journey.
    And maybe that explains C3PO... but that doesn't explain why Lucas had to have Anakin build C3PO (that stretches credulity, seriously), and then add a much more annoying fool (Jar Jar) when he already had that archetype filler character.

    I would agree, in a qualified manner, with CE, the original Star Wars trilogy wasn't written for children, but maybe it's hindsight and the (unfair?) comparison I can draw now with many SF sagas (from the written world, hence the "unfair" question) that makes me feel SW is not as good as it seemed to me back then.

    I submit to everyone's consideration the following: Empire Strikes Back is usually considered one of the best, and it was not written nor directed by Lucas. In fact one of the screenwriters for ESB was a recognized SF author, Leigh Bracket.
    To me that explains a lot of why that movie was so good and the original trilogy ending was just OK...
    Lucas however lost the chance to involve again screenwriters with SF credentials and leave the direction to better directors.

    And the keyword in all of this might well be "children."
    George Lucas might only be capable of writing movies that children would love.
    It worked for our generation, no?
    Sorry, Capt. while the OT was done in such a way that children could and did enjoy them...they weren't written for children. They were written in a timeless manner that allowed all ages to be spoken to. They did not talk down to the infant level as the PT has done (a fact that has caused him some problems with RotS, since now his audience is kiddie and this film had to be very dark).

    And WorkerCaste has hit it on the head. Plot and character are no longer important to GL...actually, if you look at most of his films, they have never been important.

    While I deeply respect GL for what he's brought to the industry as far as technology and science...I will freely admitt that he's no director...and should've stayed out of the big chair.

    Not buyin' it. Nope. The only fool or idiot was GL for creating him.
