Wow. All six on Blu-ray. I have the Collector's Edition DVD Box set of Ep IV, V, VI. But its DVD. The quality is great though. BD should be even better. Especially the sound effects.

wonder how much its gonna cost for the box set that comes with all six live-action Star Wars feature films, with the highest picture and audio quality,” along with extensive extras like “documentaries, vintage behind-the-scenes moments, interviews, retrospectives and never-before-seen footage from the Lucasfilm archives

Whoa. I thought we had seen all of IV, V and VI (+ Christmas Special). Nice.

Disney buys Lucasfilm for US$4.05bil, new Star Wars trilogy planned

http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2012/...sfilm-for-405b/

user posted image

QUOTE
A decade since George Lucas said "Star Wars" was finished on the big screen, a new trilogy under new ownership is destined for theaters after The Walt Disney Co. announced Tuesday that it was buying Lucasfilm Ltd. from him for $4.05 billion.
The seventh movie, with a working title of "Episode 7," is set for release in 2015. Episodes 8 and 9 will follow. The trilogy will continue the story of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia beyond "Return of the Jedi," the third film released and the sixth in the saga. After that, Disney plans a new "Star Wars" movie every two or three years. Lucas will serve as creative consultant in the new movies.

"I'm doing this so that the films will have a longer life," Lucas, the 68-year-old creator of the series and sole owner of Lucasfilm, said in an interview posted on YouTube. "I get to be a fan now ... I sort of look forward to it. It's a lot more fun actually, than actually having to go out into the mud and snow."
Disney CEO Bob Iger said Lucasfilm had already developed an extensive story line on the next trilogy, and Episode 7 was now in early-stage development. He said he talked with Lucas about buying the company from him a year and a half ago, but they didn't decide on a deal until very recently as Lucas set in motion his retirement.
"The last `Star Wars' movie release was 2005's `Revenge of the Sith' -- and we believe there's substantial pent-up demand," Iger said.

The blockbuster deal announced Tuesday will see Disney pay half the acquisition price in cash and half in newly issued stock. The company expects it to add to earnings in 2015. Along with the cash, Lucas will end up owning about 40 million Disney shares, which is about a 2.2 percent stake of the 1.83 billion shares that will be in circulation when the transaction closes.
The deal includes Lucasfilm's prized high-tech production companies, Industrial Light & Magic and Skywalker Sound, as well as rights to the "Indiana Jones" franchise.

Lucas was hailed as a cinematic visionary when the original "Star Wars" came out in 1977. But he had become an object of often-vicious ridicule by the time he released 3-D versions of all six films in the Star Wars franchise earlier this year.
Die-hard Star War fans had been vilifying Lucas for years, convinced that he had become a commercial sell-out and had compounded his sins by desecrating the heroic tale that he originally sought to tell.

They railed against him for adding grating characters such as Jar Jar Binks in the second trilogy and attacked him for tinkering with the original trilogy, too. Any revision in special edition or home video releases -- such as making the Ewoks blink or having a green-skinned alien named Greedo take the first shot at Han Solo in a famous bar scene -- were treated as blasphemy.
The criticism grated on Lucas, who vowed never to make another Star Wars movie.
"Why would I make any more when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?" Lucas told The New York Times earlier this year.

"Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," the fourth film in another lucrative franchise, subjected Lucas to even more barbs when it came to the big screen in 2008. Fans of those films were especially outraged about an opening scene that featured Indiana Jones crawling into a lead-lined refrigerator to survive a nuclear bomb blasting.
Lucas was fed up by the time he released "Red Tails," a movie depicting the valor of African-American pilots during World War II, earlier this year. He told the Times he was ready to retire from the business of making blockbusters and return to his roots as a student at USC's film school, where he once made a movie about clouds moving in a desert.
Kathleen Kennedy, the current co-chairman of Lucasfilm, will become the division's president and report to Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn. She will serve as executive producer for the new movies. Directors for the new movies have not yet been announced.

In the YouTube video, Lucas said the decision to continue with the saga wasn't inconsistent with past statements.
"I always said I wasn't going to do any more and that's true, because I'm not going to do any more, but that doesn't mean I'm unwilling to turn it over to Kathy to do more," Lucas said.
He said he has given Kennedy his story lines and other ideas, "and I have complete confidence that she's going to take them and make great movies."

Kennedy added that she and Lucas had discussed ideas with a couple of writers about the future movies and said Lucas would continue to have a key advisory role. "My Yoda has to be there," she said.
The deal brings Lucasfilm under the Disney banner with other brands including Pixar, Marvel, ESPN and ABC, all companies that Disney has acquired over the years.

A former weatherman who rose through the ranks of ABC, Iger has orchestrated some of the company's biggest acquisitions, including the $7.4 billion purchase of animated movie studio Pixar in 2006 and the $4.2 billion acquisition of comic book giant Marvel in 2009.

Coincidentally, Lucas owned the startup that later became Pixar, before he sold it to Apple's Steve Jobs in 1986 for about $5 million. When Jobs sold Pixar to Disney, he became Disney's largest single shareholder with a 7.7 percent stake. Those shares are now held in a trust.

Disney shares were not trading with stock markets closed due to the impact of Superstorm Sandy in New York. They closed on Friday at $50.08.


Episode VII set for release in 2015.

Set it in the "Star Wars universe", but make it completely refreshing and barely referencing the first six films.

Think "Prometheus" - set in the "Alien" universe though almost completely unrecognizable.

Sure there will be light saber duels and all, but please make the films with a solid story that you will care about.

Come on... bring the trio back!

Episode 7,8, and 9 will be like a father saying to his son "You carry on my legacy son... go watch them." ; referring to Ep 4, 5 and 6 from his time.

^Yeah. "Elysium" due February 2013.

Neil Blomkamp is mostly into projects that he himself writes, his own material sort of thing. And also he prefers working with a limited budget and prefers more outlandish / effectively stylized action sequences. It would be interesting, but even being a fan of his work, I am not too sure about him doing a Star Wars flick.

I think the best choice thus far has been Matthew Vaughn - for his track record and refreshing spin on things (based on his films).

I still strongly believe in 'writing credits'. E.g I know JP4 is in good hands thanks to it being written by the writers of "Rise of the Planet of the Apes".

Trust me, rumor mill will be strong in 2013 and 2014. Expect a lot of 'shocking' rumors these two years that will most likely turn out to be untrue in the end.

And with J.J. Abrams helming it, you can expect secrecy levels that will reach new heights.

First Look At Star Wars: Episode VII Concept Art, Probably
http://www.cinemablend.com/new/First-Look-...ably-41685.html

user posted image

QUOTE
That was your first ever look at Star Wars: Episode VII. Did you miss it? Scroll up and look again, most of it’s happening behind Kathleen Kennedy’s head.

The photo, which was originally released on the Lucas Film website, shows a production meeting in full swing at Lucasfilm. Pictured are Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy, visual effects supervisor John Knoll, production designer Rick Carter, tech VP Kim Libreri, and Jason McGatlin, the senior vice president of physical production. What are they meeting about? Lucasfilm hasn’t confirmed it, but it’s a safe bet to assume they’re talking about Star Wars.

Why do we think they’re talking Star Wars? Because behind them is a big stack of concept art, concept art that almost certainly has something to do with Star Wars: Episode VII, the new movie currently heading into production under the watchful eye of notoriously secretive, slightly paranoid, lens-flair lovin’ director J.J. Abrams. Abrams, by the way, is in the photo too. He’s the guy with his back to you.

Here’s a closer look at some of the concept art in the background…

I’ve brightened the photo up a bit to give you a clearer view. With that enhancement you can now see that the Millennium Falcon is pictured in one of the photos. The others are harder to make out, but the bottom sort of looks like it involves a long-range desert landscape shot. Tatooine? The top one has four different images and one of them looks an awful lot like Alec Guinness as Obi Wan.

First 'Star Wars: Episode 7' Set Photos

http://screencrush.com/star-wars-episode-7-set-photos/

As you may have heard, ‘Star Wars: Episode 7‘ will be filming in Abu Dhabi for a few months this summer, as the UAE capital stands in for Tatooine, the home planet of Luke Skywalker. With production set to begin next month, work on the Tatooine set has already begun and today we have our first ever ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ set photos, and look which classic ‘Star Wars’ vehicle is back!

While you might look at that photo above and go, “Uhh, OK, that’s some dude’s rolling a big concrete circle into a white tent,” we can tell you those dudes work for ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ and that big wheel very much looks like the foot of an AT-AT, the large, four-legged walker introduced in ‘The Empire Strikes Back’.

There were previously only AT-AT appearances on Hoth and Endor, so it would be interesting to see what they’re doing on Tatooine. And, just to be sure, and because this is ‘Star Wars‘ and this is what fans do when there are mysterious ‘Star Wars’ set photos, someone posted a comparison online:

QUOTE
What will likely happen is that the feet/legs of the AT-ATs will be built practically on set while CGI is used to create the rest of the walker. (Or, perhaps this is being used for a close-up that takes place at ground level and a wide shot isn’t needed.)
While it might seem surprising to have set photos popping up when we still have no idea who’s going to star in the actual movie, remember that it was confirmed earlier this month that ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ has actually started filming already. You would think that with all this movement going on surrounding the film that an official casting update is imminent.

In addition to its time in Abu Dhabi, ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ will film primarily in London at Pinewood Studios.
We’ve included some more photos from the Tatooine set below, so you can further deconstruct and analyze.
‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ opens in theaters on December 18, 2015.

i met the  the chairman of pinewood nusajaya in 2011. it's a meeting on collaborations with UTM on supplying specialized work force to work on productions. basically the cost of the production in malaysia is cheaper. and if the production included a certain percentage of malaysian, they can get tax deductions. so that's why pinewood was seeking malaysian manpower. back then, he said he's lobbying for the main studio to shoot more films here.

i thought, with JB's notorious crime rate, i would love to see hans solo get robbed in the streets!

Whoa.. biggrin.gif I certainly hope there are auditions for upcoming projects there! Got any callings do keep me posted... tongue.gif Here's hoping that Star Wars will filmed here in Malaysia. That would be bonkers..

Btw, latest news is that the original Star Wars cast have gathered in London..

Now, it could be a massive coincidence. But, to have Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo all in the same city, just about two weeks before filming on a new ‘Star Wars’ is about to begin, that seems like a preponderance of circumstantial evidence. Oh, and then there’s the fact that, DUH, of course they’re in ‘Star Wars: Episode 7.’

Hmm... first reaction OK. smile.gif Perhaps later SW film titles will be much more 'wow'. The title hints at a 'beginning' of a new chapter in the SW story.

Definitely the most awaited movie of 2015, but it is in December! What a long and painful wait. cry.gif

Almost can't believe it that the teaser has finally landed. So inclined on saying fan made but obviously, it isn't.

Here's hoping J.J. Abrams pulls it off beautifully.

Seeing the lightsaber, holy crap... looks freakin cool. Expect A LOT of discussion all over the net in the coming weeks/months.
