yeah no.....the dialogue in the PT was the main problem...I have to agree with the earlier post that stated the difference between PT and ST being that the PT was good story told and acted poorly, and that it could be improved by expanding due to its primary weakness being what it DIDN'T show, while the ST was a nonsensical and inconsistent story acted well with some great visuals that cannot be fixed due to what it DID show.
One could be remade shot for shot, same story and events with better acting, VFX and dialogue and turn out pretty good, the other could not. PT was terrible for many reasons but there at least was a sturdy foundation, the ST has no foundation, no matter what you build on top it will still crack, collapse and come crashing down. You can't fix stupid and the ST was endlessly that on so many levels.
Replacing the ST, bringing back the cast with completely new story could absolutely work. Same props, costumes, vehicles etc could be reused and suddenly those ST troopers and Rey figures no one wants left clogging the shelves would suddenly be wanted.
I truly hope that Ahsoka actually serves to begin replacing the ST entirely. I mean, sure, it would require DIsney to essentially admit failure but on the other hand they could essentially double dip sequel trilogies and maintain the existing Disney trilogy in Legends status, no longer canon but still there fir folk to enjoy as a "what if" scenario.
You failed to read where I wrote "dialogue". Please re-read.yeah no.....the dialogue in the PT was the main problem...
So remake would have to re write the entire saga.
Basically what your saying is , Tell the story of Darth Vaders fall again, without the acting, effects, and dialogue......dude that is redoing the whole thing.
Why oh why did George not give us a "Captain America: The First Avenger" style montage of Anakin and Obi-Wan just fighting a string of battles on different worlds to showcase their journey and growth and give a ton of cool and exotic moments I'll never know.
I'd argue with one thing Khev said in that post you quoted - the part about ending on a high note - this is highly unlikely to be the last time we see Hayden as Anakin. They will bring him back at every possible opportunity for the PT and Clone Wars fans, wouldn't even be surprised if they actually resurrected Anakin.
I believe it was more inspired by Queen Lili‘uokalani of Hawaii being forced to give up her throne by American businessmen in the late 1800's despite her sending delegates to Washington DC pleading for assistance.The "blockade" from the Phantom Menace was derivative of the US Navy blockade of Japan in the 1850s.
