SHIT THIS GARY WHITTA WROTE AFTER EARTH. 

 

Maybe he's better at writing things that happened "a long time ago" rather than after.  :ph34r:

Guys This Spin won't really be that much of Comp for Avatar 2.  But yes it did just undercut it's date, I'm sure James wanted that spot.  But he can still go there if he wants cause the Spins will be like 150-220 Million Tops, they won't be that huge like the "Episodes" but it depends on the characters they choose.  Of course if it's "YODA" based on his popularity that would be massive.  "Bobafett" will be decent but I don't if general audiences love him as much as Yoda or Han Solo.

Opening Scene if it's Bobafett:

As much as I don't care for a Boba Fett spin-off, that scene could totally work if given the Gandalf/Balrog approach at the start of Two Towers.

Most obvious choice for Disney's SW universe in the world. He's a journeyman director who will obey all of the Mouse's orders and make great things out of a shit script. 

 

I'm always curious how guys like Whitta get this kind of work though. Probably a mix of paying dues, making connections and displaying his passion a la Orci with ST3.

It's just gonna be a "keeping the franchise seat warm" movie like Thor 2 or something. This whole movie series is gonna be rather diluted by decade's end.

Avatar 2 might not even be out for December 16. Also I actually think other movies would be able to hold their own against it

I was hoping Star Trek 3 would try to take that date. Oh well maybe they can go for November.

If FOX wants Avatar 2 will take this date. These spin-offs won't do much money anyway.

Sounds like December is the new date for Star Wars movies. It's nice.

I know the script hasn't been written but why is Disney/Lucasfilm holding their hands on the character the spin off will be about?  The movie is now coming out in 2 1/2 years.  They have to know who they are doing.  We only have 3 names rumored.  Bobafett, Yoda and Han Solo as well as a possible Luke Skywalker Tiefighter "Red 5" rumored Film.

Because the announcement was literally 20 minutes ago?

It's so unlike Disney/Lucasfilm to keep quiet about these new Star Wars movies
