Game of Thrones ShowRunners to produce Star Wars Trilogy

31 posts in this topic

I really don't think we need to lock this, after all, it'll be something to discuss for many people for a while, why take that away. I always hate it on other forums if 2 people go off-topic and the moderators lock it while interesting discussions are going on and the topic is still relevant.

I left in the posts where things where still civil, got rid of the rest.

 

Anyway, if people want to discuss TLJ, you can always do here; http://deadlystream.com/forum/topic/5898-the-last-jedi-spoiler-discussion/

Just... keep civilised, yes?

 

hopefully, we get more in-depth scenes on Anakin and his hatred for sand. BEST SCENE IN SW!!!

I actually think it got beaten by "We win battles not by fighting the ones we hate, but saving the ones we love" (while the ones they love are going to die in the background). Your mileage may vary.

 

They *might* actually pull off a Kenobi movie. Not that hopeful, but more-so than a Solo movie without Harrison Ford.

 

EDIT: Moved some posts HERE: http://deadlystream.com/forum/topic/6045-talking-about-tlj-again/

Again, this topic *ISN'T* for talking about The Last Jedi, unless it's in relation to this new trilogy.

If I had only watched the first few seasons of GoT, this would excite me.

 

However, I have watched all of it, and while it still entertains the quality of the writing has fallen steadily as they have diverged from Martin.

 

In a Star Wars context, my feeling is that they will break no new ground, will just go back to political intrigue. That might be an improvement, but I'm not interested.

 

Frankly, it is the shocking revelation of my life, seriously - that I would be apathetic to all things Star Wars is something I would never have believed 5 years ago. If I could go back in time and tell myself this, past self would laugh and laugh and ignore.

 

Yet, here I am. Letting go of childish things sucks, but Disney has made it easier with their dismantling of a revered institution.

First few seasons of GoT were awesome, as they had source material. Then, they ran ouf ot books, so yea, it had declined.

Like I said in this very thread before, if they are to 'port' an existing SW material, it might very well work out, otherwise, Im not that interested either.

So... with Season 8 of GoT behind us... I think this topic is taking a turn, yes?
Though it seems a few of the GoT fans here already saw it somewhat coming, but did they to this extend?

Regardless of one's opinion of how well they handled that, I don't think that should really affect or create any preconceptions about what they might write for a SW movie

One is a grimdark fantasy aimed towards an adult audience. The other's a more mostly light spirited science fantasy universe aimed at kids. Apples and oranges

Arguably, Star Wars (at least originally) was aimed at all audiences rather than just at kids. That's why the sudden push for kids toys and overall more kid-friendly characters like Jar Jar gave so many people whiplash when the Prequels rolled around. (The Ewoks seemed so out of left field as well)

There's always been a decent adult audience for Star Wars content which is likely part of why novels like the Rogue Squadron and Thrawn series caught on so well.

As long as George R Martin shows restraint and doesn't rely on brutal imagery and explicit sexual content, then it could provide that adult audience with something more in terms with their tastes. (Heck, if we actually care whether a character dies or not it will reinforce the fact that these are in fact Star [ul]Wars[/ul] ; and not just negotiations, which I'm all for)

However, if they decide to go full bore with everything and make it an adult only viewing, then it will likely split the demographic and possibly the fanbase. (Plus it will cause the obligatory protest from concerned parents once they find out)
