Haven’t gotten to Episode 2 and 3 yet, but the first one was amazing.
I watched about 3 minutes of the first video. Do not agree with what the guy said.
He wants to make everything familiar but I think that was the problem with Episode 7 (A Newer Hope). Maybe they just went to an extreme.
I was displeased with Ep 7 because it felt exactly like Ep 4.
I’d say watch the whole thing and see if you still feel that way; it started kind of lackluster, but he makes some good points, IMO, and I’d have rather watched his movie than the one we actually got
This is exactly the mission of the film. Success.
Why did I pay to see an updated version of Ep 4?
Cuz you like light sabers, damnit!
I’m assuming for the same reason I did: you enjoy Star Wars. The goal of Episode 7 was to restart the franchise though. To be a jumping off point for the next films in the exact same way A New Hope was. The goal wasn’t to make a direct continuation of Episode 6—even though it is technically continuing the story from the same universe.
If 7 was released a year after 6, it would be a different film in the same way 4 then 5 then 6 or 1 then 2 then 3 are.
I would have liked to see these movies. I’ll pretend I saw them instead…
Could not agree with @teh_ninjaneer more. It’s just a big slap in the face to people who are actually fans of the franchise, and wanted to see a NEW Star Wars adventure… not the same one that’s been out since 1977 and they’ve probably seen hundreds of times… They could have saved themselves a whole bunch of money by just bringing A New Hope back to theatres.
Instead, they did exactly what they did with The Phantom Menace, Ignore what the fans of the franchise wanted in order to go after a new audience.
Rogue One, on the other hand, was brilliant. THAT should have been the re-boot of the franchise. It wasn’t the same damn story, only with a “Hey! Look! It’s Harrison Ford” bit… It was filling in a new piece of the story for Star Wars fans, AND leads right in to A New Hope. <- there you go… now you have people watching A New Hope without having to make the abomination that was The Force Awakens.
I thought Rogue One was amazing. The Force Awakens was good though. I’m a biased super fan.
It really was. Did you immediately go home and re-watch A New Hope like I did?
I wanted to. I really did. But… but…
… don’t have it.
I watched it before and after
