Does anyone know where in the Star Wars timeline the next film will take place?

R1, nobody wants to direct it, that's why he's directing.

Now the Star Wars Fanboys can have someone to hate, other than George Lucas.

I don't even hate Abrams but this is a terrible idea - there are tons of other directors out there to choose from that could have done something interesting. I guess "interesting" wasn't what they were looking for. Safe was.

It'll be fine. There's Michael Arndt writing the script as opposed to Abrams and his ADD nerd brigade. He can direct, it's his scripts that usually blow - but this one isn't his.

Any shirtless pics of JJ? I think he's hot. Would love to know how big his cock is. And you just know he has a thick, hairy bush.

How can there BE another Star Wars movie? That's what I'd like to know.
The story is OVER at the end of Return of the Jedi:
- The Emperor is destroyed
- Darth Vader dies & is redeemed
- Luke & Leia find out they are brother & sister

I thought Abrams did a great job with Star Trek. So there.

Abrams made Star Trek fun again.

I think Abrams' first Star Trek movie was genuinely good, but it's still been overrated.

Abrams' Star Wars was amazing. It made me interested in the franchise again, which I hadn't been in years.
R3 is mentally ill.

I don't know. I think it would be best to have different people involved in Trek and Wars. They're going to end up too similar in style and lose what makes them unique.
And, as usual, JJ doesn't finish things he starts so I expect him to now completely abandon Star Trek for his newest toy.

The new Star Trek was decent, and it was obviously time to move on to something new, but it will be hard to replace the original crew in my mind.

The Star Trek movie was my favorite movie of that year. And I'm not a sci-fi fan.

Why can't people just invent new franchises? It's sad to think of 30-40 year old guys are the ones who take the most interest in this.

You know, I was willing to watch the Star Wars prequels and defend them to a few of my friends because at least they contained the same characters and some of the same actors as the original films, but I'm not going to defend doing yet another set of films that aren't necessary.
|by Anonymous||reply 22||01/25/2013|
I know many enjoyed his Star Trek movie, but all those characters already had perfectly nice back stories he could have brought to life to the delight of TOS fans everywhere.

If they can SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEZE another few dollars out of the SW franchise, then they will do it without shame.
This is Disney, after all...

But as I asked above, R24, what more can be done with Star Wars after Return of the Jedi? The story is OVER.
|by Anonymous||reply 25||01/25/2013|
R25 - what happened to all the Imperial governors and officers?
Would they all turn round and say "Oh well, the jig's up - we better surrender all our ships and troops to the Republic, which we were handily beating before"?
Or would they simply say "my turn now!"?
And then you have a huge civil war with the barely re-established Republic having to fight all these groups who are all fighting each other?
And what about the rebuilding of the Jedi?
And the pacification of the remaing Imperial worlds, the ending of the slave trade, the suppression of the criminal gangs?
Endless examples - but just not really very different...

Yay, now there will finally be a Star Trek/Star Wars crossover. I want to see Spock interacting with Jar Jar Binks.

I get so tired of fools like R3.

It's been mentioned on a few websites that the new movies mightn't pick up where Jedi left off, and would instead just take place in that universe.
Which could be potentially more interesting. Provided that the filmmakers in charge want to just apply their style and approach to that world.
Lars Von Trier should sign up.

I loved the original Star Wars movies (Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi). The prequels held no interest for me. Rather bland and boring. I am okay with watching the original movies on blueray when the Star Wars bug crawls up my ass. I don't need any more movies. Leave the Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies alone.

"But as I asked above, [R24], what more can be done with Star Wars after Return of the Jedi? The story is OVER."
A million paperback books have been published about the post-ROTJ adventures of Luke, Leia, Han, and all the fan-fiction characters that have solidified into a new canon.
I believe Lucas originally intended to make a film trilogy about the founding of the new Republic, but gave it up as a bad job and sold the rights for that era to the book publishers. He's basically let the nerdy fan-fiction writers take over that portion of his universe, which I think is rather sweet. Yet, the fans still hate him.

Uh, yeah, all those shitty novels have been thrown out, sorry. No longer canon.

The new "Star Trek" movie was nice, but it honestly reminded me more of "Star Wars" than "Star Trek". We haven't had a good "Star Trek" movie since Leonard Nimoy was directing. There's a fine balance between interpersonal drama, action and sci-fi that most movie directors are incapable of finding.

Abrams is hot and pings to death but he's a shitty director, hated "Cloverfield"

Abrams produced but did not direct Cloverfield.
I haed "Super 8" which he did direct.

I wonder if there is any chance of the new timeline reverting back to the original timeline somehow in a future movie? I mean, they can't just not have Vulcan be part of the Star Trek universe from now on, can they? I don't think so.
They fucked up the timeline in the first movie. I think it will be corrected at some point.

Okay, I'm also hoping that they restore the original timelines. That when they decide to make the last new "Star Trek" film, the following happens...
Mr. Spock has not been idle since the time shift and destruction of Vulcan, and has been working hard to save his home planet by restoring the orignial timeline. So at the climax of the last film, when all seems lost, he pushes a button and everything fades... and bingo! We're in an exact replica of the opening of "The Corbromite Manuver"!
I wonder if Nimoy would be willing to come back for it?
|by Anonymous||reply 43||01/28/2013|
How the hell old is Nimoy now? I don't think he's going to be around a couple of films from now. Sacrilege to state, I know, but there it is.
Anyone who watched Alias and the latest Star Trek movie will understand what I'm about to say...
If there's a giant fucking red ball of liquid anywhere near a Star Wars character, I'm going to explode!

I read something yesterday somewhere that said Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher may be featured in the new films as a much older Luke and Leia, so if true, apparently the new movies will take place years after ROTJ ended.
And R38, get in line. JJ is mine.
