That sounds great.  I would find it immensely amusing if Disney went back and undid George's irritating revisionist improvements and tweaks.  Clone voice Boba, scrap the SE Max Rebo band, Darth's Noooooo, etc.

I always wondered why would Boba Fett's voice need to sound like Jango's/clone's voice?  Since he is pretty badass, perhaps he suffered some damage to the vocal cords during some scuffle that almost cost him his life?  Or he smoked?  Or maybe some ailment, or maybe because he didn't have the restrictions that the clone troopers had...

Revisions on revisions eh?  I like it.

I'm hoping beyond hope that they Hire Adywan (of Star Wars: Revisited fame) to handle all things previously released.

I have often said that there is a vast pool of fan talent that they could easily tap into.  This is a great idea, at least from a perspective of input.

It blows my mind when these big companies get things so wrong when there would be thousands of nerds willing to churn out better products for little investment.  Think Transformers, DC movies, etc. etc.

Tap into those that love the product.  Emotional investment can produce dividends.

SW.com: Gareth Edwards and Gary Whitta Onboard for Star Wars Stand-Alone Film

Quote
In addition to the episodes of a new Star Wars trilogy, Lucasfilm and Disney have begun development on multiple stand-alone movies that will offer new stories beyond the core Saga. Gareth Edwards will direct the first stand-alone film, with a screenplay by Gary Whitta. The film is due out December 16, 2016.

Gareth Edwards blazed into the filmmaking forefront with his acclaimed work on Monsters, a film he wrote, directed and served on as cinematographer and visual effects artist. The skill and vision readily apparent in Monsters earned him the high-profile spot directing this year's smash hit Godzilla.

"Ever since I saw Star Wars I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the rest of my life -- join the Rebel Alliance! I could not be more excited and honored to go on this mission with Lucasfilm," said Edwards.

Gary Whittas screenwriting credits include 2010's The Book of Eli starring Denzel Washington. He is also well known as a journalist and editor in the video game industry, as well as part of the BAFTA award-winning team on Telltale Games adaptation of The Walking Dead.

Whitta states, "From the moment I first saw the original movie as a wide-eyed kid, Star Wars has been the single most profound inspiration to my imagination and to my career as a writer. It is deeply special to me,so to be given the opportunity to contribute to its ongoing legacy, especially in collaboration with a film-maker as talented as Gareth, is literally a dream come true. I'm still pinching myself."

And there was this the other day:

AVclub: Today in Star Wars rumors: This may be the list of planned Star Wars spinoffs

Much as we are already ignoring our current political issues and looking forward to the 2016 elections, we have begun looking past Star Wars: Episode VII—which has already become a reality, and therefore can no longer be shaped by outsider pundits—to the future, where those untold numbers of sequels and spinoffs await. Disney has previously discussed plans to alternate chapters of the new Star Wars trilogy with standalone “origin story” films, with many reports saying the first two of those would follow a young Han Solo and a younger-and-not-yet-eaten Boba Fett.

And now new rumors confirming those—and hinting at the third spinoff film—have emerged through a German fan site that was reporting on a strategy meeting from Hasbro, thus creating the secondhand, speculative chain of hearsay and disorder in which Star Wars news thrives. According to those rumors, the timeline for new Star Wars projects (and their action-figure tie-ins) is as follows:

    • 2014: Rebels
    • 2015: Episode VII
    • 2016: Boba Fett
    • 2017: Episode VIII
    • 2018: Solo
    • 2019: Episode IX
    • 2020: Red Five

The Red 5 one interested me...  I'm kind of into Han Solo as an idea.  Boba Fett's biggest issue will be how it upsets people's view of him in the EU I think.  Me, I'm into it all really.  I'm open to whatever these stories are.  I look at them as just more EU at this point really, and if they're good, fantastic.

I've seen as many bad reviews as good for Godzilla, so that doesn't really wow me as a credit. Nor does any of the stuff the other guy has done, but that's not to say they can't make a good Boba Fett movie.

As long as it's set between Rebels and ROTJ, I think they'll be in safe waters.
