Apparently they've decided to shoot the new films on actual film instead of with the new digital tech...

An elegant medium, for a more civilised age, film captures light in an organic, analogue, imperfect way. Great directors have used this to their advantage, and in this case it's comforting to think Abrams will be closer to the grubby look of the original trilogy than the glossy cleanliness of the prequels.

Episode VII is due out in 2015, with VIII and IX due in 2017 and 2019. Spin-off movies will appear in the years in between, rumoured to be focusing on a dashing young Han Solo in one, and tin-hatted rocket-pack pilot Boba Fett in another.

 

 

 

What do you film geeks like SZ James etc think of this?

More news on the upcoming "stand alone" Star Wars films...

Get ready to learn just how Han Solo became such a jaded, grizzled, mercenary.

If the conclusion drawn by Variety is correct, Disney CFO Jay Rasulo let it be known that the series of standalone "Star Wars" films that will be coming over the next few years -- in addition to Episodes VII, VIII, and IX -- will be "origin" stories.

Could be good if the casting is right and as long as Johnny Depp is no where to be seen. 

 

 

Who should play a young Han?

That he is.

 

 

Ford was Solo and Indiana and Jack Ryan though...

 

 

Who else is there?  Needs some swagger... like, a lot of swagger...

Chris Pine really would be a perfect young Han Solo. He's the only guy I can think of who would instantly have the charisma to pull off the role.

I think film geeks and the majority of anyone who feels strongly one way or the other prefers the look and feel of actual film. The rest will watch whatever is put in front of them.

Agreed. It will sell regardless so might as well make it look nice the way film does

I think Chris Pine would be terrible. But I can't think of anyone that wouldn't be terrible.

I think he would be awesome. Definitely gives off that Han vibe.
