You didn't like Toy Story 3?!

And meh on Fisher possibly returning... I still think these shouldn't be about the Big 3.

EDIT: 1234th post, I usually don't brag about post count but I liked the number... Razz

Toy Story 3's Michael Arndt to write the screenplay for Star Wars Episode VII

And this just got even more awesome! Very Happy


HOW is this good news? Every movie I've seen by him has been essentially unwatchably painful.

Okay, Arndt has written two professional screenplays: Toy Story 3 and Little Miss Sunshine. I loved Toy Story 3 (if you didn't like it you are in a distinct minority) and it was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay. I haven't seen Little Miss Sunshine, but I've heard really good things about it and it won Best Original Screenplay. So, yeah, I'd say it's good news. (As a side note: it looks like he's writing the screenplay for Catching Fire also).

@Caedus: I liked Iron Giant, but I LOVED The Incredibles and Ratatouille. I haven't seen Ghost Protocol.


Little Miss Sunshine was unwatchable. Its number 3 on the "worst movies I've ever suffered through" list.

Toy Story 3 was childish, dull, and quite honestly annoying. Though admittedly not AS horrible. I will never understand what people found so fascinating about it.

I loved Little Miss Sunshine. Great movie.

Just because you don't like the same things as everyone else doesn't make you a hater, as long as that isn't the only reason why you dislike them.

For me, a lot of it had to do with the nostalgia. If I had seen all three movies back-to-back, I don't think the third movie would've had the power it did. I don't think kids nowadays got nearly as much out of it as us late teens/twenty-somethings did. As someone who grew up loving Toy Story, though, it was nearly perfect.

Maybe Arndt can pull off a similar nostalgia power trip for the new Star Wars trilogy. Cool

Perhaps that would help. I loved the first one, enjoyed the second a fair bit (though don't remember all the details), but the third one was just a disappointment to me.

I know it was popular, but it just didn't work for me. I'm not looking for something that's a nostalgia trip for new Star Wars though, I want something that's as good a continuation of the OT as Thrawn was. And Sadly I dont think Arndt can come anywhere close to that.

Oh, Henning.

Toy Story 3 makes me bawl like a small child. And I don't cry during movies.

Now the question becomes...what happens to the EU we know and love?

Could very well be a deciding factor for many fans.


Somebody (I'm just giving ideas here) such as Old Master Ben could send Disney/Lucasfilm and set up an agreement to make sure that they take the whole Expanded Universe into account before destroying it completely. Like i said before, I'm just giving ideas

I don't know if I'm supposed to be excited or disappointed

One thing that could be considered consolation: the eu can't come to an end because they're making movies on the end of the timeline. It wouldn't destroy anything before episode six. It would only take out the New Republic era and the Legacy era. Just saying

...Until Disney makes spin-offs set in earlier eras. Unless Disney decides to care more about the EU than Lucas did, the EU is done for. My fandom will probably also be done for.

Disney has given every indication in the past that they care about the franchises they've bought, so it's possible that they will indeed treat it better than Lucas did.

Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan's ghost in Episode VII? He's up for the task if they need him.

They've done a decent job of following established continuity (or more accurately adapting it) in the Marvel-based movies. Hopefully this means that they'll look at the other material they've bought along with Ep I-VI in the LFL acquisition.
