    The question isn't whether they're going to CGI her, the question is whether Disney will realise that it's much cheaper to CGI all their actors regardless of their condition. The only thing that would give Disney pause is the possible outrage but in truth the fans won't give a shit.

    lol yeah because SW wasn't a pointless cashcow before Lucas sold it to Disney.

    All Lucas did when he sold it to Disney was drop all pretense that Star Wars was "poetry".

    ............

    E:

    It died in 1971 when Lucas made sure he owned all the merchandising rights.

    Nostalgia is big bucks, but also doesn't require much investment, especially considering that people's memories don't really change. I mean like, all you need to do is model 1977 Carrie Fisher ONCE and just copy and paste her in every other movie you want. The actual person standing in for Carrie in Rogue One maybe cost Disney a tenth of what it would've cost to actually get Carrie in there, and best of all, it can literally be any woman you want (if the stand in from Rogue One gets too fat, you can just recast some other cheap, thin, 22-year-old broad).

    Disney did the same with Peter Cushing... they can get millions in movie tickets just for 10 minutes of CG.Tarkin, and it'll only cost Disney a tiny jerk off of cash to the Estate of Peter Cushing. No one was pissed off about the actual implications of this, instead people were gushing over how realistic CG.Tarkin looked. Everyone wins, but Disney especially wins.

    I mostly agree with what you are saying, but in my opinion, no one was pissed off because Tarkin's original actor is dead. If they utilize CGI stand-ins for living actors that still resemble their on-screen characters (unlike Fisher), nerds will rage.

    The pandering is just to try and get adult fans on board. They stopped caring. Each series is meant to appeal to the kids of the generation, because Star Wars makes its money on toy sales, not the box office. Every single thing in every movie is meant for them to sell toys.

    Nerds aren't buying toys and 75% don't have kids to buy toys for. Push Disney, and you will ee how little they care about a franchise that has not had any integrity since 99.

    I don't think it is really pandering, they were just trying to make the movie authentic considering it literally takes place 5 minutes before episode 4 starts. They had to make it look the same. I mean the whole movie was pandering, but they couldn't have done it any other way.

    No, they were definitely trying to experiment. Why else would they star an Australian with a lisp and try to make him seem intimidating?

    Yeah there was a lot of different shit too. I don't think K-2So/KX Security Droid was a previously defined model in the Star Wars universe before Rogue One related shit started coming out. I just mean that the similar shit wasn't all pandering because the movie takes place right before A New Hope's opening scene.

    There's like 10 Star Wars movies and it should have stopped at 3. Y'all might as well be watching Days of Our Lives with some hot cocoa in a snuggie by now.

    Star Wars died once Lucas decided to explain Darth Vader's origin, which was never going to be as interesting or epic as what fans could come up with in their heads. Personally speaking, Han Solo was the only character I ever gave a fuck about so my investment here on out is somewhere in the Earth's core.

    Star Wars is pretty much the pinnacle of whoring out. At best they should've just stuck with their shitty mainline movies and not do spinoff shit that does a worse job of expanding the lore and past of the setting than Lucas did. Even the dialogue in the new movie was laughable and makes the most autistic of the old fanfiction look like works of literary art.

    Oh Kyle Katarn have mercy on us all...

    The series won't die out until they admit that Jar Jar Binks is the true Sith Lord.

    The dialogue in Rogue One was a billion times more believable than Anakin and Padme's chemistry/relationship.

    I have no idea how George Lucas could have looked at each the prequel movies before releasing them and though "Yes, these are good. These are the worthy of being called Star Wars movies."
