Yeah, but it did it alright, as opposed to what happened after (don't get me started on how retarded the storyling has no become). Don't get me wrong, in no way should Dark Empire be considered the sequel trilogy, as that honor belongs only to the Thrawn books. It's just not that bad. It shouldn't be blamed for starting moronic trends, the people who kept such trends going should.

No, that definately goes to Kevin J. Anderson.  With double helpings from... Barbara Hambly, Vonda McIntyre, Dave Wolverton.  This can be collectively know as "The Dark Times after the Empire."  Michael P. Kube-McDowell, Kristine Rusch and Kathy Tyers were neither harmful (as the damage had been done), but didn't really help the story-line get back on track. 

Too bad just as things go back on track they had to destroy the Galaxy in the NJO series.

Those were awesome. The only thing missing was R2 D2 and C 3PO as Zeus and Apollo. Could've also thrown Vader in as Ice Pick.

I don't know how many of you have been keeping up with 'Clone Wars,' but the Geonosian arc of the past three episodes has been quite good, with the first episode's ('Landing at Point Rain') action seriously rivaling that of the end of 'AotC.'

Last night's episode was essentially 'Aliens' meets the Borg meets Ceti Eels meets zombies in the form of dead (and thus virtually unstoppable) Geonosians being controlled by the previously unseen Queen's hive mind and her wormlike brain-inhabiting offspring deep in the catacombs of the planet.

A never before scene from Return of the Jedi, in which Darth Vader tempts Luke Skywalker  to join the dark side, paired with footage of Luke constructing/activating his green lightsaber and officially becoming a Jedi Knight.

'Cause it doesn't flow with the movie. It's much more interesting to introduce Luke as a mysterious figure entering Jabba's palace.

Agreed. I think it is a better reveal that way.

Edmund: I remember Massingburg's most famous case, the case of the bloody knife. A man was found next to a murdured body, he had the knife in his hand, thirteen witnesses that seen him stab the victim, and when the police arrived he said, "I'm glad I killed the bastard." Massingbird not only got him off, but he got him knighted in the New Year's Honors list, and the relatives of the victim had to pay to have the blood washed out of his jacket.

Apparently the scene with Luke in the cave, isn't Hamill....at least not entirely.  Hamill claims there were some post production shenanigans in the creation of the cave scene.

The Star Wars Saga is Coming in 3D!

Quote
Lucasfilm Ltd. announced today that the live-action "Star Wars" saga will be converted to 3D.

"There are few movies that lend themselves more perfectly to 3D; from the Death Star trench run to the Tatooine Podrace, the 'Star Wars Saga' has always delivered an entertainment experience that is completely immersive," said the statement.

Presented by Twentieth Century Fox and Lucasfilm Ltd., the "cutting edge conversion" will be supervised by Industrial Light & Magic.

Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace is expected to be released theatrically in 2012. A release date has not yet been determined.

"Getting good results on a stereo conversion is a matter of taking the time and getting it right," said John Knoll, Visual Effects Supervisor for Industrial Light & Magic. "It takes a critical and artistic eye along with an incredible attention to detail to be successful. It is not something that you can rush if you want to expect good results. For Star Wars we will take our time, applying everything we know both aesthetically and technically to bring audiences a fantastic new Star Wars experience."

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=70221#ixzz10u4naeAT

I have no interest in seeing any of the Star Wars films in theater at this point and even less interest in seeing them in 3-d, but I guess to others, this might be awesome.  I will say though, it's amusing, or maybe just sad and pathetic...to see Lucas jump on the 3-d bandwagon and want to re-release the films again.  No doubt they'll make a gazillion dollars, but really, how many times is he going to release the original trilogy.  Let it go man.

just wait he will "remake" them all with new actors actresses so he can take advantage of all the new fangled technology.  my only hope is if he does "remake" them he fixes the horrid mistakes of 1-3 such as banning himself from writing the dialogue.  and have Anikin/Darth Vader kill Jar-Jar at the end of III  Tongue

I'm skeptical, but you never know.  If it does happen, and this is a terrible thing to say in a way, but I hope Lucas is pretty much as far away as possible from the whole thing.  Bring in a good, versatile, and proven creative who can be entrusted with the franchise.

Also, enough with the 100+/1000 years in the future stuff.  Just do the damn Thrawn Trilogy or something.  You know if they set it in the future it will just be a retread of the same things anyway, so why not set it in roughly the same era, with the familiar backdrop that everyone loves?  I guess the main problem with the immediate post ROTJ-era is that they'll want a bunch of Jedi running around to use as main characters, which wouldn't really be possible in that timeframe.
