    If you folks thought that was crazy. There was other scripts and directors.

    There is a Bay version. Don't know much about this one.
    Disney originally reached out to Michael Bay. Apparently Finn and Poe get into a shootout at a Twi'lek dance club and Finn uses the Force to guide a laser bolt through the club to shoot someone in the head. The laser blast changes direction eight times. It's would have been a great shot because Bay would have done it ALL in first person.

    Wes Anderson. I don't have much info on this one. Anderson wanted to fire John Williams and replace him with a vitrola that played records from the 70s that covered hits from the 60s done as flutophone instrumentals. Lightsaber would be replaced with long sticks with flags on them. The Force would be an actual family who runs a lighting business. The climatic final battle is a slapfight at a farmer's market. I'm told it was just too twee for Disney.

    Wes Anderson is a big Star Wars fan, and he has a real vision. I like his movies, though I think Anderson would be more interested in doing his own original story than adapting or working with pre-established IP.

    The problem is that there really isn't anyone can who can build Star Wars after Lucas. No one can do it. People who bring up TESB and Kershner neglect how much Lucas was involved in that movie. Before Kershner and Kasdan were contracted, Lucas already decided on the story, the twists, created the new characters and settings, and the overall character arcs. ROTJ, ditto.

    Rian Johnson largely works in small genre pieces, and is a writer first, and not someone with a big visual sensibility. JJ Abrams even less than Johnson.

    Any director who has a visual imagination and inventiveness to rival Lucas would simply prefer to do their stuff rather than work with Star Wars. I mean this was why, when Lucas asked David Cronenberg and David Lynch to direct ROTJ they both passed. Both of them had the visual invention and richness comparable (and in some cases, greater) than Lucas but they preferred doing their stuff.

    I finally read the Tremorrow's version and I like it a lot better. its definitely a more meatier story to the generic superhero type of story we got in ROS.

    Wonder if that was because it truly is "meatier" or just because of the way the movie was edited? (Also, I have noticed that the last movies of the trilogy tend to be the most plot-centric after the previous two set up the characters.)
