Could the sequels be remade?

Post by _Lee_ »

This isnt meant as a dig at the ST but does anyone else think the sequels could be re-made? As Disney own Marvel and they like a re-boot, could this possibly happen?

I regard the ST as non-canon, so wouldn't have a problem with them rebooting the trilogy a few years down the line.
Never gonna happen though, unless there's a major shake-up at Lucasfilm. They'd never admit to the ST being a major misfire.

It's going to be fascinating to see what unfolds when Kennedy gets the much overdue boot.

As much as I dislike 7 & 8 (haven't seen 9), I tend to think that some would see it as a slap in the face for the fans that like the ST, if it were ever rebooted.

It absolutely should happen, but it absolutely won't. Not officially at any rate. However, as deepfake and CGI technologies advance and become more commonplace and convincing in home video editing suites, then in addition to an unfathomable amount of fake celebrity porn being spanked out in schoolboy bedrooms the world over, you can all but guarantee groups of dedicated Star Wars fans will take it upon themselves to make their own replacement sequel trilogies that actually respect the story, characters and canon established in the first 6 films, and ignore the inept abortions that Disney shat onto the screen in episodes XII to IX.

The only way I can see official alternatives to the sequel trilogy being made by Disney is in the form of an alternate universe 'what if...?' type story in comic book form. This is because similar alternate reality stories have already appeared before in multiple franchises, including Star Wars itself since all the Expanded Universe stories, novels, comics and video games set after 'Return of the Jedi', from 'Heir to the Empire' onward were callously and stupidly wiped from the canon in a single incompetent stroke by Disney when they bought Lucasfilm (and then that talentless hack Kennedy has the fucking gall to claim there was no source material to base the sequels on!), and therefore are now officially regarded as 'Legends', aka alternate history. So I can see that happening eventually, but certainly not on film. What we will get instead is a brand new raft of films with some stories probably set within the existing timeline (like 'The Mandalorian'), and probably another trilogy of films set some time after 'The Rise of Skywalker' when a new Sith threat rises.

Can't see it happening, they have to much invested in these new movies, they will leave it a while then carry on with new movies, I like the new stuff anyway, I know a few of you can't stick them, but I enjoy them

Whilst Disney clearly love a remake at the moment, I can't see them wiping the Sequel trilogy in order to create something different. It'd be an admission that the films aren't good enough, it would be a slap in the face for those involved in creating the films (which admittedly, in creating live-action versions of their animated films, is something that doesn't seem to bother Disney too much), it'd annoy those who actually like them, and leave Disney with 3 products which are unmarketable - who's interested in buying/renting/broadcasting films which aren't officially recognised by the company that owns them? Plus, there are a lot of fans out there who do actually like them.

Grinchy's right - Disney will want to invest in new films which would give them much bigger returns.
