I think the biggest obstacle to making them into a movie is that they're set only 5 years after Return of the Jedi. Meanwhile, the actors who played the main characters have aged 30 years. Luke and Leia should have been what, in their mid to late 20s in those books? Meanwhile, Hamill and Fisher were in their 60s. That's asking a bit much, even for the best make up artists. Plus, they'd have to pay Zahn some pretty hefty royalties, I'm sure.TheArmsman wrote: ↑Sat May 30, 2020 12:52 amLangenator wrote: ↑Tue May 19, 2020 11:09 pmOn the fiction side, I'm re-reading Timothy Zahn's Thrawn trilogy (Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command). Reminding myself, once again, how badly the House of Mouse missed the boat because they were too busy screwing the pooch on Eps VII-IX.
Was so hoping these would have been made into a movie. Was also looking forward to A Splinter in The Minds Eye being a movie, also.
I am waiting for the library to open back up so I can get my hands on Zahn's Thrawn prequel books. Along with the next Harry Bosch novel on my list.
Meanwhile, I'm reading John Keegan's Second World War (again) on the non-fiction side, and Ballistic by Marko Kloos on the fiction side.
