Star Wars desperately needs good writers, why the feth have they hired D&D? Disney are aware that anything good they've done hasn't been from them, right? Somebody should write a book on the continued mismanagement of this franchise.

I'm also loving the fact that we're getting Avatar films. It's been over 10 years, the spectacle of the film was novel at the time but I doubt it'll carry over. Does anybody want this?

Sorry it's Gizmodo, but beggars canyon be choosers!

No word on whether this is Rian's trilogy, GoT show runner trilogy, or something else altogether. But there's a three year break between IX and the next, that much we do know.



Star Wars - anything assocaited with Johnson is now dead on arrival for me and Season 8 of GOT is bad so swing and a miss.

Avatar - silly but good fun, looked great - would watch more.

Looking forwad to seeing what happens with MCU stuff on the D Channel - I liked some of the Netflix stuff but alot was not great. Agent Carter was my fav tv show - far better than the Daisy/Skye show that was Agents of Shield.

On the GoT screen writer blokes...

There is rumory mention, possibly confirmed, that Disney are keen to explore more of the old EU of Star Wars.

So far, we've seen dribs and drabs, notably Thrawn's genuinely menacing presence in Rebels, and a few ship designs. Stripped of the chaff (Yuuzhan Vong, or whatever. Honestly. People say the new trilogy is bobbins??), and only retaining the Good Stuff (I'll let you decide what qualifies there. Except if it's Yuuzhan Vong, because you'rzan wrong!) could be their forte. Adapt existing stories in a new, more canon friendly manner. And that includes Old Republic stuff.

I hope the next Avatar film is just called:

Avatar: Exterminatus

And we leave it at that.

As far as the Star Wars announcement goes? Well, people kept saying that we were going to get super hero fatigue. Endgame is now the number 2 film of all time in two weeks. So, that's not happening.

Star Wars fatigue? Yeah I think after TLJ and Solo we're certainly suffering from that. Rise of the Whatever might be the most important SW film ever released, as it will directly determine what happens with these three new films.

And as far as Avatar, I'm sure it's one of things that Disney were kinda happy to get a hold in the Fox merger, but probably wouldn't have greenlit 4 of the damned things back in the day, but they're stuck with them given they've been in production for so long.

Why did they hire the two guys behind what might be the single most watched television show in history, a show so big that it has captured the cultural zeitgeist like no other show in living memory? Nah... you're right. I can't think of any reason why Disney would hire them.

Game of Thrones started well, when it wasn't powered by D&D's creative steam. Everything they've done by themselves has been garbo. It gets watched but it's not good writing. Something being popular doesn't mean it's of quality. I asked for good writing, something D&D can't do on their own merit.

Good luck with vulgarity in Star Wars. At least they'll be able to teleport their characters logically in this universe.

Something getting watched means it's making the people wot paid to make it money.

Pretty sure ain't nobody gives a Rodent's Derriere beyond that point.

I mean, look at Friends. 10 season, 1 joke, no talent. Yet continues to be wildly popular, and thus keeps the money rolling in.

Ditto Big Bang Theory.

Come on man. They're the Executive Producers on a television show. Everything that show does is on their "creative steam", books or no books.

Ah yes. The great success of Game of Thrones. The last two truncated seasons, with the final being 6 episodes with some of them being longer.

It's fine if you enjoy GoT. I enjoy it at a pure popcorn level now but when it's done I won't be watching it again and it'll be forgotten.

Well, yes, that's a highly factual statement. It's a show that has increased its viewership every single season, which is unusual. It's a show so popular that it regularly appears on the news.

I'm wondering if Old Republic stuff is better suited to a GoT style show?

I mean, there's a [I[lot[/I] of ground to cover. Because it's not just a handful of years we're talking, but a whole era.

I suspect you could be right. I mean the Mandalorian looks great, and 10 episodes gives you more opportunities for storytelling than a 2 and a bit hour film (double-edged sword, gives you a lot of room to meander about doing nothing as well).

Heh, to re-use an old title, a Disney+ "Tales of the Jedi" anthology series set in the Old Republic could work.

Are you saying Game of Thrones totally didn't get shortened because it waned in popularity when D&D had more of a creative role?

Everything is about money and popularity until it isn't convenient.

Definitely.

Mando is already signed on for Season 2, according to Jon Favreau. So already, that character is getting 20 odd hours (well, 20 lots of 45 minutes), compared to Luke's 10 hours of films.

As it looks to be a lens to lesser explored areas of Star Wars, I really think it'll be a winner.

Old Republic should probably follow suit, if you ask me. Can always use the TV show to build up to a film or even a trilogy, after all. Just a big old climax.

Did it wane in popularity? Did it though?





Pic because you're clearly flying in the face of facts.

You not enjoying it? Fair enough. Opinions are fine. But to say it's waning in popularity, when it's doing the exact reverse?

The guy behind success of GoT is GRRM. Show is quite clumsily written (though many episodes are very well directed) outside of the stuff Martin has laid down.

And the man behind the success of the Lord of the Rings films was JRRT, right?

Mate, you sure you haven't confused GoT for The Walking Dead by accident?

And "had a more creative role"... do you know how television shows are run? You know it's the writers that run TV shows right, unlike movies where it's the directors (big studios notwithstanding). D&D have had a massive creative role from day one because they're the guys who run the show. That's how it works.

GRRM's books, covered season 1-5, yes?

Max viewership - 6.5 million or so in the US.

Seasons 6-8? Max viewership 12 million or so in the US.

But I guess we can prove anything with facts?

Yes. Jackson is a great producer, mediocre director and awful writer.

GoT's bread and butter are the characters. Every meaningful character and their traits and lines and styles were developed by GRRM. Take a look at Dorne and Sand Snakes angle of the series. Would that level of writing propel anything to success?

GRm also wrote all the crap, dull and pointless ones to wonder around as well as his own super plot shielded avatar in the show.

Rian Johnson just ignored any concept of a character in his effort in favour of tedium and the odd effects shot

Characters in TLOTR are fine and for the most part consistant.

Kind of a weird thread to throw rocks at Ewoks. The two Ewok spinoff movies, maligned as they are, gave us more Star Wars than the two Star Wars ST movies.

I'd posit hype and relentless best thing ever rhetoric from people who really should know better,(it is after all as Wednesday noted just bewbs and dragons, or mostly Dragons now) along with people just wanting to get to the end also played a big part

As for any new Star Wars just one movie without any annoying space wizards would be nice
