When have they been stupid with their movie making? They know their audiences, they give them what they want, and they even take risks on new ideas like Marvel's Avengers. They spent 4 billion dollars buying Star Wars, I seriously doubt they're going to burn the franchise down and reboot it effectively spending that 4 billion on the Star Wars name alone. They know their audiences and I don't think I've heard a single Star Wars fan asking for a reboot and the franchise can be advanced to episode 7 effectively putting the prequels in the rear-view mirror never to be touched again.

Considering at the lack luster responce to the Star Trek reboot, the best comparison you can have, I dont see why they would try. The two new Star Trek movies have done okay at the boxoffice, inspite of being a Star Trek reboot, not because of it.

Into Darkness has done about 7 times the box office of Nemesis so far; it's a pretty successful reboot. That said, I agree that there is no good reason to reboot Star Wars.

Trek needed it. Voyager, Enterprise, and the TNG movies (sans First Contact) killed the franchise dead. While people loathe the prequels there's still enough Star Wars fervor that it can keep on and do fine.

Agreed - why reboot when the purchase price came with ready-made sequel ops?

Not really. They weren't great, but neither were they dire in the same way as Nemesis and big chunks of Voyager and Enterprise, and they showed definite improvement until RotS stands up pretty well against the OT.

Hmm, for my money it's a valley. TMP wasn't too hot. ATOC nosedived and then ROTS did a partial recovery.

It most definitely is incredibly sexist. It is also most definitely par for the course.


Not as sexist as the original trilogy, where Leia was practically the only woman with any real role for all three movies. Okay, there was Aunt Beru in ANH (with two scenes), Mon Mothma in RotJ (with just one scene) and probably a few extras at Cloud City in TESB and at Jabba's Palace in RotJ, but these were all relatively minor. Both, the Rebel Alliance (except for Leia and Mothma) and the Empire looked curiously devoid of women.
