    Expect Mr. Lucas to be assassinated by a neckbeard with a sniper rifle if this happens.

    And you know what's funny about this?

    He's using Time Travel to do it. And, to recap, what do we know about time travel and, more specifically, going back in time and then back to your original time?

    If you go back in time, change an event, and go back to your original time, you've not changed the outcome at all. Simply split a universe in two. Darth Vader would still exist, as would loving dad Anakin Skywalker. They'd be completely separate, and both canon, because both would exist in two entirely different universes.

    So this wouldn't kill the original trilogy, simply create a fork in the universe in which both outcomes are canon.
    Is it just me or does this seem like what Nintendo did with The Legend of Zelda.

    We know fuck all about time travel other than it might be possible to do with neutrinos.

    Not to mention that he'll just go "this timeline is canon you're wrong if you think otherwise".

    I doubt that Lucas has the mental capacity to comprehend that being possible.

    I think that it was Palpatine losing on purpose so that Anakin would do his first dark side deed and be officially dark side.
    He wasn't losing on purpose, he got his ass kicked (almost literally, since Windu actually kicked his lightsaber out the window.) He just got lucky that Anakin chose that moment to complete his turn.

    Well no, the whole point is that Lucas wants it to be the established timeline in the Star Wars universe

    and that Lucas is a moron who shouldn't be allowed to make anything more complicated than a slice of toast
    that's cool and everything, but it really doesn't matter and you shouldn't care

    How are they going to stop Anakin from becoming Vader without the whole "Oh hey, you're going to become evil later on in life, don't do anything stupid"

    I'm predicting that they will either chop his penis off or give his wife an abortion. There is no way 3 bounty hunters can kill a Sith Lord.

    Bull. Sidious was a Sith Lord, and was manipulating all of the events involving Anakin to bring him closer to the dark side and to convince him that the Jedi were untrustworthy. He was playing the weak old man approach.

    in his commentary track for the phantom menace's re-release in ~3d~, harry plinkett said he got stephen hawking to watch the film, or asked him what he thought of the prequels or something, and stephen hawking said that mankind should redirect an asteroid towards earth and launch the original unaltered trilogy out into space b/c that's the only way to permanently destroy the prequel trilogy

    unless george lucas launches the prequel trilogy first... fuck

    Seems like a rather silly idea. Even now, I really doubt Lucas would think of doing that.

    And even if it did, my years from being a geek on the Star Wars Expanded Universe means I'm familar enough with the matter of story canonicity that this show would easily be considered as another alternate universe story, no biggie.

    I wonder how that'd work because of how distrustful the council is of Anakin and how Yoda is like the only one that could perhaps beat Palpatine.
    No Mace Windu was about to kill him but then Anakin interfered

    I don't get what the problem is? He wants to try something different so let him try something different. I'll only base whatever opinion I have on the finished product.
    This is the exact same attitude that got us Phantom Menace.

    He was given pretty much complete creative control. With the original trilogy, he actually didn't have a massive amount of creative control and had a lot of people keeping him in check.

    Well on the bright side, even if George killed the timeline of the original trilogy, we would still have the Yuzhan Vong War and maybe Darth Krayt taking over the Universe. That's pretty cool right?

    Basically, he made the originals with loads of people helping him from going batshit with it and then some dudes were all like "hey he's really good with this" and took away the people helping because they figured it was all just him.

    The prequels were the result.

    Let him release all the new bullshit he wants, but he can never actually tarnish the original trilogy itself. We'll all have our own copies of the true original format of the trilogy in our homes either on VHS or older DVDs to enjoy the right way. Just ignore any of the crap Lucas decides to release if you don't want to include it in the Star Wars series.

    Star Wars because at least the terrible movies are noncanon in Resident Evil. And while Resident Evil 5 wasn't the picture of quality, its pretty miniscule in comparison to the others. You can ultimately forgive Resident Evil 5. Nothing makes Phantom Menace forgivable.
