Looks interesting. Wasn't a big fan of 1 and 2 but I want to see how it all comes together.

Hot damn, those were awesome!
I was somewhat worried about this one, but it looks like the plot is pretty solid and the action looks mighty fine. However, it was the dialogue that really killed Attack of the Clones, so we'll just have to wait.

Arrgh! Must stop. Want story....to be surprise. But no!!!! (since, well, EVERYBODY knows) Cool pics. I actually really liked the first movie alot, because there's really no way they couldve made it like the original. Finally, this one looks quite promising.

This movie is going to be so depressing. Everyone will be having a good time until the credits roll.

Then millions of Star Wars geeks will realize the end has come.

Eeek, what am I doing back here? oink

That is a link to a thread about a fan trailer. The compositing and 3d work is definitely amazing. ILM quality in fact.

Hah, I just noticed that some of those pics are in fact the ones from the fan trailer that he composited himself.

I believe these (at least, MOST of them) are stills that were released for the press. Newspapers, magazines, all that.

I don't think any of the effects shots (every shot shown, hehe) are final CG. Here's hoping.

Yeah, but he is also in the mentality that: "special effects are always better", and hardly ever relies on practical effects. Which, I think takes alot away from the film. (i.e. the clone war in ep. 2)

It might be hard to execute "practical effects" when you want lightsabres, lasers, space ships, alien planet environments, etc...

They looks really good. I really hope these s hots are the final thigns. Because I'm sorry to say, but a lot of the thigns look... well... really fake. Normally Star Wars CGI is so amazing it looks realy, but a lot of the things I'm seeing look too smooth or too liquidy, so they really look like it was just filmed on a green screen. *shrugs* I'd normally be like, "Oooer!! Awesome!" But I took clsoer looks at them. And ack...

oh yeah I saw Episode 1 thought it was ok, but ep 2 just seamed like a they threw together all the hits of their old movies, not just one monster in a pit, now its three, not just Bubba Fett, Bubba's dad....and an army of Bubbas, onward and so forth.

I'm really looking forward to the Battle of Coruscant. Can't wait to see the early versions of Rebel fighters and Star Destroyers in full force. Going to be really cool.

PS. Bubba? I didn't know there was another Fett that worked in the back of that diner from Ep. 2? wink

The thing to remember with those lightsaber shots is that you have to see them moving, just because it looks like a big smear on a still doesn't mean it's going to look like that in action.

I thought the plan for this one was to use more model shots to match the whole thing into the look of the originals????

I think that what is "practical" today in the movie industry is totally different that what it was 25 years ago. For example, do you think that SFX creators would even consider hand-painting individual frames for light sabres? Or using scale models for space-battles?

I do think it is a bit ridiculous that episodes 1 and 2 were pretty much filmed entirely on greenscreens. I think Lucas could be more practical about set creation.

If you watch some of the webdocs and other documentaries - they had to make more sets etc for episode 1/2 than a normal movie would.

I forget which ones - but thers i think an entired webdoc from one of thoses movies about that

Who's to say they shouldn't consider it. I hate how it just looks "fake", when the first three movies didnt look nearly as fake. 30 years later......shouldn't the effects be, umm, I don't know.......better? It passes me how people can spend years and millions of dollars on substandard effects, while oldies like bladerunner and even stuff like 2001:Space Odyssey surpass its effect quality.

I believe it's a matter of balance with effects work and, for me at least, the new SWars movies have lent too heavily on using CGI, whilst neglecting the strengths of more traditional approaches.

Whilst the earlier episodes are 'technically' dated, I can't imagine too many people could honestly look at the newer films and say that nearly 30 years on they blow the other SWars movies away visually, from a realism stand point at least.

Yeah, has he really directed ANYTHING outside of star wars since its initial release? He collaborated with Spielburg on the Indiana Jones movies, but has he really done anything BUT Star wars outside of that? If I were him I'd want to try other things, if I had all the money that he obviously has.

I disagree with you there, Atom.

Lucas runs under the mentality of "What is cheapest and fastest with the best look." Many shots in Episode II wern't he greatest simply becasue of the sheer magnitude of visual effects shots needed in a small amount of time. ILM handles ALL of the FX shots, and dosen't outsource any to other FX houses, which is the standard for films now. Peter Jackson even needed to bring people in to help him out meet the dealine for RotK. Lucas is also paying for everything out of his pocket, unlike most hollywood films, which are backed and financed by a studio.

Lucas dosen't even like computers. He writes his scripts with a No. 2 pencil on a pad of paper. wink

EDIT: Man, there was a page 2 and 3 in this thread? Wow, show you how much attention i'm paying at 1 in the morning.

Well, I want him to load 'em up to my host so I can see them, not publicly display them. I guess that was unclear, so, sorry.

Oh, and about THX, I didnt realize that was before Star Wars. Guess I was wrong. American Grafitti was pretty good, though. I just don't think Lucas'll ever shake off his Star Wars persona. (mostly because he's only embracing it by making these prequels) But, whatever. I think he was a visionary.................30 years ago. He's trying too hard now, and in my opinion, failing miserably in what seems to be some pretty good ideas.

Nope, he hasn't directed anything since the first Star Wars (before Phantom Menace). This is because he's not really a director. Fact. He gets stressed out from directing, & obviously is more suited to creating stories & writing them with other writers & directors. Even calling him a writer is a bit wide of the mark because he obviously can't write well if he works on his own. He's just a storyteller, & a very diverse one at that. He has a very creative side that allows him to create great stories & I think it's this same kind of thinking on his part that has allowed him to have a hand in pretty much every major film innovation in the past 25 years.

I heard that he may make a film aimed primarily at adults after Revenge, would be interesting to see where he goes actually, & see if he can mature like Spielberg has done.

I George Lucas' days of original movies (that are hits anyways) are virtually over....may be wrong.... but I just see Indiana Jones 4 and MAYBE Hobbit in his future....who knows..... I should look it up on IMDb or something, see what he's already started.

If anyone is doing the Hobbit, it will be PJ, though nothing has yet been announced or confirmed. IJ 4 is indeed going to happen and is announced with Harrison Ford signed for the role. I doubt he'll direct the movie. As for THX, atom, don't you remember all the references to THX in Star Wars? And it was very low budget, everything involving Georgy since then has been on a decent budget. I would not call THX one of his big films, because wasn't it just a little short independent film that got him noticed?

actually PJ has announced that he officially wants to do it, and all the actors would reprise their roles for the film, but Tolkien's son is being a big baby and never liked the movies, and would rather liscence a stupid platformer game instead.

Here's what Cinescape has to say about The Hobbit:

"The path may be clearing for Peter Jackson to one day make a film from J.R.R. Tolkien's THE HOBBIT. As it stands now, MGM owns the film rights to HOBBIT, preventing the makers of Jackson's LORD OF THE RINGS movie trilogy, New Line Cinema, from making the prequel tale into a movie. When first asked if he had any interest in making a movie from THE HOBBIT, Jackson said no, but now that the RINGS movies are done, he's warmed up a little to the possibility. But would the Oscar-winning director make THE HOBBIT for another studio? It's doubtful.

However, rumors have been heard that Time Warner, the parent company of New Line, may be interested in purchasing MGM and its library of movie titles. If that did happen the legal hurdles will have been cleared and Jackson could make THE HOBBIT film a reality.

MGM's management team is ready to consider the Time Warner offer but there's another hitch: rival studio Sony Pictures is continuing with its bid to get MGM. It could be a matter of which megacorp makes the sweetest offer first."

Add that to the fact that Jackson has Kong, and then The Lovely Bones (I think that's what it's called), we're not going to get a Hobbit until at LEAST 2009 or 2010. That's assuming it'll be one to two years of pre/pro/and post production. That's also assuming the rights issue gets settled, AND none of the major cast dies or ages too far and won't fit the character right anymore. Remember that Ian Holm was shown in sequences that occur in The Hobbit , in LotR, so hopefuly he won't look too different.

You add all this stuff up, and it seems doubful that there will be a Hobbit movie in the forseeable future.

It probably won't sit right with many theatre-goers anyways. Take away all human character from the trilogy, then get rid of the comedic value that the hobbits added, as well as the hobbits except for Bilbo himself, and then take John Rhys Davies dwarf character and multiply it's presence by 13 and there you go. Dosen't really sound like it'll stick even if it would be made. Although the draw power of the name alot would guarentee a box office smash.

The Hobbit? where did that come from?
all the fans are convinced that Peter Jackson and George Lucas are teaming up for The Hobbit (was even on the news back when ROTK first came out) I doubt it...I doubt if they are going to make it all let alone with Lucas, but hey, some people will swear on it
