Old Republic trailer

06.02.2009

This isn't exactly movie related but this recently released trailer for the MMO game "Star Wars: The Old Republic" is so goddamn cinematic, most, if not all, of you schmoes and schmoettes should appreciate it. Taking place about three thousand years before the events of the original STAR WARS trilogy and detailing some sort of massive Sith uprising, this trailer puts most movie trailers to shame. Check it.

Damn!

I loved this! I think this should've been what the prequels looked liked, and I liked the prequels(especially ROTS)!

I lost my LOVE for SW...

...until I saw this TRAILER! I would buy a ticket NOW for a complete film done like this. The tone and the internal story mechanics...the attitude... I think this is what EVERYBODY was expecting when the SW prequels came out in the first place. This was edgy cool all the way--

Even the Jedi and Sith powers during battle were consistent... and done really cool in a way that actually LOOKED powerful. Isnt it a shame that the prequels looked "cartoony" compared to this? This felt like more of

This felt like more of a SERIOUS DRAMA than all the prequels put together-- but I digress... the bottom line is that we all loved this and want MORE. ( as long as you dont cheese it up with silly humor gags and jar-jars or ewoks...) SW "could" RULE if they would just LET IT.

That cinematic is phenomenal. Still, I'm somewhat glad they haven't mined the KOTOR setting to death. In fact, as much as I'd like to see a movie like this, I feel as if it would, ultimately, kill the setting. The KOTOR setting has always had great storylines and visuals - from the comics to the games. Hopefully it will maintain some integrity as more and more people start taking advantage of it.

This is what the future of Star Wars should be. Leave the whole Luke, Leia, Anakin timeline alone and focus on something else. IMO, that story has been told, to death. Move on. This was a trailer for a video game and it was so much better than any of the prequels or the Clone Wars. Please leave it to the new generation to carry on the Star Wars torch Mr Lucas.

Better than the entire prequel trilogy

Yah that was awesome. It puts Lucas to shame. That's what it should of been like when Darth Vader killed all the Jedi, not that retarded "younglings" shit.

wwwoooowwww..........

that was crazy awesome. Just went to the site though and saw it is an online game...eh.


Why is this not a movie. Just watching that makes my mind go crazy as to why there aren't more movies from Star Wars. They need cooler/differently talented people working on this franchise like: Daron Aronofsky, Steven Spielberg, Danny Boyle...Michael Bay! (lol) Lucas should let 'baby out of the corner' and make it open material for other to work on. Seriously too, how

Seriously too, how many high profile directors wouldn't jump at the shot of making their own star wars movie. (No reboots, just prequels and sequels.) It's like better than chicken sandwiches. They are so delicious.

Jesus...

I could literally cry about "What Could Have Been..."
(That is if that Lucas died about '93 and didn't completely fuck up everything he made and later on people with actual talent took over...)

Actually..

The Boba Fett like character just uses the same armor, which was around way before Boba started using it. That is just standard Mandalorian armor. Isnt like Boba was the only one who wore it.

There are no TIE like ships in Phantom because the sith empire was destroyed 3,000 years before and the villains were the separatists not the sith. I could go on explaining the technical details but I'll refrain from being in the category as over defensive fanboy.

Your entitled to your criticism.

Design

So... basically magically hundreds of years before Darth Vader there is a guy who looks just like him but with out a mask? Really? Couldn't design a new bad guy. (Don't tell me that Vader is designed after this guy.)

And in 20 years between trilogies all the designs change more substantially than they do in 300 or whatever years this is supposed to happen.

There are TIE like ships... but there aren't any at the onset of Phantom.

They have more technology on their wrists than any

They have more technology on their wrists than any character in either trilogy had.

And there has to be a girl Boba Fett type character.

Sigh.

I at least they don't attempt to wedge Yoda into it.. or Chewbacca's grandfather. I could be giving them too much credit though.

On the good side... Star Wars Prequels perhaps should have been more like this trailer... I was always underwhelmed by Jedi powers... this uses them in a much more cinematic way.

Sorry to be a bummer.

neat

That was cool, but it's still an MMO, which means it's meant to go on and on and end up feeling really fucking pointless and pretentious. I would much prefer if this was a whole game with a set story, and defined ending. I hate what MMOs do to great stories.

Bad Ass

Everyone here is already beating me to this... but it can't be denied:

THIS is how a Star Wars movie needs to be done.

I strongly believe Star Wars is something that should never die. It's a part of our mythos, much like greek mythology (which SW was based off of). It's the mythology of the 20th century for so many of us... and more to come.

Lucas definitely needs to sit back, relax, and let a new generation grab the reigns... a generation that is itching to do so.

This is bad

This is bad assery to the 10th degree.

@housecoat man

I agree. Still let Lucas come up with or advise on the story (he is best as a story teller anyway), but let others direct/write/produce it. Maybe have Lucas on as an executive producer or something.

Great looking trailer

It reminded me of the ONLY part of the entire prequel trilogy that stuck with me - the fight between Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon and Darth Maul.

Most of the rest of that George Lucas money grab was just that - some often interesting, occasionally great visuals completely marred by horrible dialog and some sh*tty lead performances.

Think I'm a little bitter?

I'm a fan of the Knights of the Old Republic games and especially the Bioware studio. But this game is a step away from what, should be, KOTOR 3. As much as I love the video, it hurts that Bioware is selling themselves out to MMOs.

That has more visual panache then anything in the prequels. Lucas needs to hand over the reigns and let some others inject some new blood into star wars the way they're doing it with the games.
Just sayin'....

Awesome

They really need to make some movies about the Old Republic. These games are sick. Lucas needs to leave the Skywalker story alone and bring this shit to the big screen.
