    Instead of doing a reboot of the prequels, I'd like Disney to give Topher Grace permission to release his edit of the prequels as a special edition.

    For those not aware Topher Grace (the kid from That 70s Show) is an uber Star Wars nerd, and for a project while learning editing he recut the prequels into a single movie then had a special viewing for only friends and family. Apparently it was awesome.

    Mind you, I think a full trilogy reboot of the prequels will definitely happen. I could see it occurring inside the next 10-15 years. Disney are planning on releasing a new Star Wars movie every december till we are all dead, so they are going to need material from somewhere. Spin off and origin movies about Han, Fett, Lando, and a handful of others will be able to fill in the alternate years but once Ep VIII-X are completed the urge to go back to the prequels will be strong

    I think it's time for a gay Obi-Wan.

    Jimmy Smits might be a bit too old by then.

    The Prequels has its audience out there just like the Originals. Might as well reboot both then.

    The SW prequels, like Home Alone 3-5, Ghostbusters II and the ladies one, the Honey I Shrunk The Kids sequels or Beethoven 2-7 are beloved by my 5 and 7 year old children. They think they are cinematic masterpieces. I'm sure when they are in their 20s, 30s and 40s, they'll be defending these films on the inter web and in party conversations.

    However, I just now pretend none of it exists and Star Wars starts with Rogue One and the four sequels.

    3 things about this article;

    1. I forgot that that this was coming out and I am looking forward to reading it

    2. I am going to be $2000 richer on account of the bet I made with strong_latte and Roostah in December 2015 (given that more and more of the prequels are actually being cannonised by Disney)

    AND

    3. I actually do feel a little bit sorry for Jar Jar Binks.

    This thread is beyond stupid

    Disney have no plans now or in the future to reboot the prequels.

    Also, [email protected] the idea that they will run out of material for the main movies soon. The movies are set in an entire galaxy that has a history that spans 1000s of years. I think they will be OK story wise for some time to come

    Honestly, I have a hard on for the fact that Woody Harrelson is this!

    Also, if they style Alden's hair in a 1977 fashion I reckon he can pull it off!

    edit: it's slated for MAY and NOT DECEMBER 2018!

    Sticking with May huh. Wonder if they'll announce another one for December 2018 also?

    I also wonder if it means episode 9 will get a May 2019 release or if they will revert back to December? Episode 7 was originally due in May this year.

    Unless they are going to slate another movie for the same year, it's almost certain that the Han Solo movie and ep 9 will get moved to December.

    They own that time of year

    They can always put a Marvel or Disney flick in at Christmas. I'm just impatient though and would prefer a mid year release.

    Iirc the reason it got pushed back is because Rian Johnson had to rewrite the script because of how well received Finn, Rey and Poe were. Given he's also written the script for Episode 9 maybe the plan is to bring it forward because he's already got all the pieces in place.

    The only thing I can see impeding it is conflicting schedules... the guy who has taken over playing Chewie is in the Han Solo film too.

    I don't think it has anything to do with scripts or work schedules mate, its purely a business decision from Disney and a pretty smart one at that.

    There is next to no competition in December as opposed to the summer months and it's perfect timing to ramp up the toy sales leading into Christmas

    Wether or not it was the sole reason is one thing but. Episode 8 was in part delayed for rewrites. That much I'm certain of. It was supposed to get a summer release but within a few days of The Force Awakens coming out they said "if it ain't broke don't fix it" and kept the December release.

    I do forget about the toy sales. I will be waiting to get myself a Luke Skywalker Black series figure in September!
