Following Star Wars: The growth of Skywalker, the Star Wars Skywalker saga has come to a near – but that doesn’t mean it has achieved closure. The Star Wars Sequel Trilogy and standalones have created many new continuity knots, and Star Wars has Gotten much more extensive than what George Lucas originally envisioned for its franchise. Rather than always bending modern Star Wars to match the restricted view of the Original Trilogy, we should now consider another option: Disney should remake the Star Wars Original Trilogy, for the benefit of the franchise and its fans.
That statement may seem controversial to just about every person in the Present Star Wars fandom – but if you think about it, and let for a Fast breakdown, You Might change your mind:
Preserve The Star Wars Originals
Ever since the Star Wars film franchise began moving Forward again in the’90s, there’s been a conflict between the Original Trilogy along with the material that is new that Lucasfilm created. It started with George Lucas releasing the Star Wars Special Editions, where Lucas punched-up the first movies with new visual effects, new scenes, and even significant changes to the previous canon (Han Shot First!). Fans were quite split over the movement, and with good reason: Lucas had arguably abandoned the low-budget and maverick filmmaking he didn’t create Star Wars out the’70s movie studio program, which is precisely what helped endear the movie to fans in the first location.
There’s a lesson to be learned from fans’ response to the Star Wars Special Editions: ” We love the first Star Wars movies For their kitschy magical, and there were repeated calls to find the first (non-tampered) films released on current services. Maybe it’s time to admit the original Star Wars OT movies deserve to be their own thing – along with the more massive contemporary Star Wars Skywalker Saga should perhaps be a different thing.
The Prequels Are Kind of Reboots
No doubt the most significant and most jarring hop in watching Star Wars is starting with all the Star Wars Prequels And then visiting the Trilogy. There was simply too much time between the ’70s age of the OT, also era of the PT, for the movies to ever hope to sync up visually. In many respects, the Star Wars Prequels are almost like a reboot for the franchise, regarding visual tone and format – one that feels more by the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy that has come along after. Considering that Star Wars has already kind of given itself a new start from the 21st century, so why don’t you complete the procedure and create The Skywalker Saga one set of visually cohesive movies with the addition of a modern-looking version of the OT to the lineup?
We’ve Got The Actors.
The instant question fans will ask about this idea is: how could you recast the first Star Wars movies? It is not that difficult – we have the people to do it and know who they are!
Since the Star Wars community has already pointed out, Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier celebrity Sebastian Stan is a beloved stand-in for Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker. Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd is a star in her own right, and fans would likely love to watch her perform a variant of Leia. Even Solo’s Alden Ehrenreich has gathered a dedicated cult-following, calling for his return to the franchise – ditto for Donald Glover’s Lando. All those celebrities are believable young versions of the OT actors who returned to the Sequel Trilogy, so the transition between ST and OT would do the job. This would be nearly too simple for Disney / Lucas to pull off, on the casting front.
As stated at the beginning: One of the most massive issues in Star Wars is The way the hugely enlarged (and retconned) continuity under Disney gets harder and more challenging to fit with Lucas’ First Trilogy. We are down to nitpicking minor extras in OT movie scenes because”inspirations” for new Star Wars stories that may connect to the immense continuity. It is getting silly.
A brand new version of Star Wars OT Would have complete knowledge of the Skywalker Saga canon facing it. It might lend weight to new scenes particulars, characters, and storylines that develop into bigger things later on. Villains such as Vader and Palpatine’s part could be more fleshed out, and the writing on OT personalities like Luke, Han, and Leia may be upgraded to better match the elderly, contemporary variants we met from the Sequel Trilogy.
We Reduce NOTHING
The knee-jerk reaction is that this Disney remake idea somehow downgrades the first Star Wars movies – but it’s quite the reverse. It permanently if Disney remakes that the OT Preserves Lucas’ films as their own separate, thing, which Motivated a more massive franchise reboot. There are no Have to tamper with Lucas’ cuts anymore. The Lucas movies are to represent their’s culture Time, while the Disney films would be a complete set, unto themselves. George Lucas would still have his imprint on the Disney franchise Through the Prequels it is pretty much a win all around.
