Becausee they're tacky, corny, cheesy, stupid, and pointless. If anything cheapened Star Wars, it was those.

VERY good news on this. I just read in this morning's paper that N'SYNC is OUT of the movie due to an incredible backlash of complaints to George Lucas's company by FANS ON THE INTERNET!! They let him know just how bad they thought this was and he is cutting the scene! No stupid N'SYNC to spoil Star Wars!! They are of course upset about it and their feelings are hurt that they were not wanted by so many people. Joey said "we are out of it and I don't want to talk about it." Too bad!

Not to bump an N'Stink related topic, but did anyone catch SNL tonight? They had a skit about the movie, and had N'Sync singing a song...it was funny.

Even if they are gone, the mere fact they've been planned inot it will ruin it for me. I'll be sitting there in every battle scene thinking "grrr this is where Nsync were gonna be"
Now I hear on channel v today that freakin Celine Dion is doing a bloody themesong!!!!!!!!!!!!

People think "ah big deal" but I wasnt pleased when Lawrence Fishburne was even included in the cast. Hes a good actor but screams Hollywood to me, and Hollywood is the last thing u want Star Wars to remind u of.

Not Happy, Jan

not George...

u are very correct on the cheesines factor. SW is badly acted, its isn't the greatest script ever written however I think there is one element you are forgetting. It is original. Apart from GUinness, the actors were unknowns, nothing else like it had been made before and to bring in spoilt pop singers just because they are fans of the films, bites major jedi arse.

oh and adam's mistress, the wookees weren't replaced. The ewoks were just new characters.

Imagine if Star Wars had included the Bay City Rollers! It had unknowns and it became great. That is the true test of greatness- kind of like U2

I'm just so happy N'Sync are GONE! I will always wonder where they might have been too, and I'm sure the cut scenes will become collector's items and appear on outtakes shows for years. You fans (assuming there are some here) may get to see them after all. Thank goodness the rest of us will be spared.

I agree. And no i don't really think that the inclusion of N*SYNC cheapens it, because although I like STar Wars as much as the next person (maybe more) I can admit that they are cheap ass B grade movies. I mean the acting was AWFUL from the begining, it just another steriotype of the hero's journey and it's been sold out before and recomped the same night. So yeah I think it's lame as hell that N*SYNC is in it, but I think Lucas is lame as hell on his own. So....

Um, the Celine Dion thing was debunked months ago.

As for SW being a cheesy B movie, it is. It's trying to be. It was heavily influenced by the Flash Gordon serials Lucas watched as a kid. The only difference is that Lucas incorporated mythology into it and redefined special effects for it.
