    I don't understand this move at all. Coming off The Mandalorian receiving rave reviews from Star Wars fanboys and fangirls everywhere (that show is sooooooooo completely overrated, if you ask me), why on Earth would Jon Favreau want to get wrapped up in re-making the last Star Wars trilogy?

    Just move on, Disney brass... this is a terrible idea. If you folks think Mr. Favreau can do the job J.J. Abrams clearly could not, turn the man loose on something totally new.

    You can't polish your own turds, Disney. Those movies were almost as bad as Episodes I, II and III. Nothing is gonna fix them.

    Just..... no..... stop it.

    Why not? Beat the dead horse till it’s pulp. No one cares about new or original ideas. Just keep milking the dried up teat of the creatively bankrupt cow that is Star Wars.

    Maybe the studio realized they messed up by making the sequels for younger audiences. Maybe the Mandalorian showed them that their real core audience is actually all of us older fans.

    I vote for the industry's standard trope of avoiding making actual new movies; they prefer to regurgitate old ones and/or make prequels and sequels and sideways-quels until the pigs fly home to roost, and then do it again with fresh pig manure from under the roost.

    Ep 1-3 and 7-9 all sucked to some degree, so I'm overjoyed at the thought of them being remade by someone competent.

    Uh, no, it's probably the best Star Wars product since the original three movies.

    It might be the best since the original trilogy... but that's not saying much at all since there's a COLOSSAL drop-off after Jedi... just massive. The franchise went off the rails with Episode 1 and has been in the ditch on its roof ever since.

    These days, be it films or episodic shows, it doesn't take much excite the blindly allegiant Star Wars crowd, especially the ones born after 1980. Just make sure there's some cute, little robot rolling around or some adorable creature for 'em to fawn over, then just re-hash the story a bit, smother it in CGI, throw in some stuff from the original trilogy and PRESTO -- Star Wars fans under 40 will fork over their money and claim that it's "amaaaaaaaazzziiiiiiinnng!!!"

    Such a joke.

    It's called business. That's exactly what they want to happen.

    Sounds like madness to me.
    It would be funny if they did an instant replay remake of 7-9 and it came out worse than the first attempt.
    Not that I don’t trust Jon - he’s been doing some great things. (But then, so had J J.)

    I watched one later episode of The Mandalorian and my immediate reaction was why is so much time wasted watching him walk from one place to another, just to showoff the set, costume and creature designs? They take a very short story and stretch it to fill the time. It's the same reason I don't watch M. Night Shyamalan movies, he writes a 20 minute story, then stretches it with long plodding shots into a 2 hour movie.

    Why not? Everything is not for everybody. The people who might like it are the target, not you. Feels like a lot of opinion stated as fact in here.

    Some people have no patience. "Hurry up and get to the good part!".

    I like what Favreau's done so I look forward to anything from him.

    If you actually read the article it says he will not be doing that. Clickbait.
