According to Ain't It Cool News and Corona Coming Attractions, N'sync is going to cameo in the next "Star Wars" movie. They're going to appear as Jedi knights who get killed. Apparently George's thirteen-year-old daughter begged him to get N'sync into the movie.

If this rumor is true: much as I'd love to see this mediocre boy band get lightsabered into oblivion on the big screen, I have to shudder at the thought of N'SYNC in a STAR WARS MOVIE. As if Jar Jar wasn't bad enough...

Let me get this straight...

On one hand, they appear.

On anouther, they get pasted.

Hmmm...depends on how dramatic their deaths are.

Very dramatic (with sounds, gashes, similar to Qui-Gon's death) = good

Non dramatic (off-camera) = at least DiCaprio is no longer being considerd....

Not too dramatic, from what I've heard -- they're on screen for only a few frames, then there's a big explosion and away they go. Supposedly you won't be able to even see them long enough to know it's them until the DVD hits. (Or at least until the bootleg of the screener hits the Net, cuz you just know that someone is gonna count frames so all the teenage girls can scream on queue...)

I think I'd like to see them fire up the lightsabers, start to sing and get blasted as the first note erupts!

I don't think the whole band put together would have enough "force" between them to considered Jedi knights, perhaps they are Jedi servants. I wonder if they have a blacklight saber, or maybe they have a mind trick that makes you want to vomit. I know that little trick works on Me, it takes all My powers to contain My stomache soups. As long as they get killed quickly, I don't mind seeing them perform........Z

Yep, it's confirmed. Now, all I have to say is:

"OH MY GOD N'SYNC IS IN STAR WARS LUCAS HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO US YOU [edited]"

On a lighter note, "Yay, N'Sync gets blown up by battle droids!"

Okay, now I have to shut down this connection to see if the new winsock works right on my other computer. See ya!

Even if they get killed, and even if they are barely noticeable, there's something revolting about N'Sync appearing as Jedi knights!
What is Lucas trying to do? Get rid of all his fans?

I'd say he's aiming the current batch of 3 movies straight at the same audience the first 3 were aimed at. 12 to 15 year olds.

Title: Episode 3 - The Pepsi-Clone Generation

EXT. DESERT -- BLAZING SUNNY DAY

Anakin cracks open a Budweiser®, keeping the label towards the camera, and slaps Amidala on the butt

ANAKIN
(shouting)
Fix me a Swanson's® Pot Pie, B****!

Amidala smiles and takes off her headphones.

MUSIC CLIP -- Whatever Boy Band is currently popular

AMIDALA
Whatever you say, Darth baby... would you like me to get you your Red Man® chewing tobacco while it's in the oven? I know you enjoy the rich, fully bodied flavor that only Red Man® can provide.

SUBLIMINAL BLIPVERT -- Surely nobody remembers Max Headroom well enough to figure out the exploding fat people after this many years and Viagra® needs the sales badly enough to risk it.

ANAKIN
Yes.. and put on your special outfit from Victoria's Secret® while you serve me.

AMIDALA
Ooh, honey! Look who's stopped by!

The stoner kid Steve, from the Dell® commercials, comes in

STEVE
Good morning Mr. and Mrs. Anakin. You look like you could use a new Dell® Dudes. Just call 1-800-OVERPRICED and you can get hooked up today.

Believe it or not, there was actually a product placement in Episode 1. They had the Nintendo version of Pod Racer running in the background of the commentator's booth.

It was almost worth watching Pulp Fiction just to see John Revol... er, Travolta get turned into a sieve by his own submachinegun.  I just wish they'd cast more Scientologists (esp. the high leadership) in such roles (and in real life).

What? NSYNC has a part???

Hmmm... and all I ever wanted to see was an Asian with a noteworthy role (even just a little role)... No offense or anything... It's just... you know, in the spirit of all the samurai-ish kung-fu-fighting choreography and princess amidala's geisha-esque costumes..

Oh, well... makes me kind of happy that my sister grew out of her NSYNC phase and into her punk phase.... They better at least do something cool or something, to earn the spot they got...

That's what I'm afraid of, that they'll do something "cool".

Didn't the Gungan who shall remain nameless already do that? If not it must have been the weak opening, stupid plot, out of place religious symbolism, dumb plot twists (some of which contradict the earlier films),etc. in Phantom Menace. Of course there's the idiotic title for Episode II, but it's full force hasn't been felt yet.

As for plugging people and products in his films I hope nobody here expects the man who invented the concept of merchandise marketing rights to miss an opportunity to plug some product from which he might benefit.

Of course I'm still angry with Lucas for editing Star Wars (I refuse to use the new name for the first one) over the summer of 1977 and re-releasing a shorter version of the movie that nobody seems to remember used to be longer and richer in character interaction.

This probably isn't the right place to argue about scenes I saw in 1977 that are missing from the video versions, but I'll briefly mention a couple:
- Luke stargazing and noticing the battle above Tatooine. Owen tells him it must have been starlight reflecting off a hull.
-Red Leader mentioning Luke's father when he gives Luke and Biggs their pre-flight pep talk.
-Biggs getting shot down before Luke's attack run and Luke "losing it" for a minute when the guy who was like an older brother to him is gone. Definitely not part of the attack run despite what the website and book say. After all the book says they were in blue squadron so it's hardly an authoritative source of information.

They are out, due to the amount of bad publicity generated.

Jam on Seattle Lines
Wednesday, January 9, 2002 - 5:51 AM EST by JarJar


John Guth and Jeff Tweiten continue to draw press coverage for their five month wait for Episode II, the latest round coming from Jam Showbiz. Read on:

Two Seattle men who have embarked on a four-month lineup to be the first to see the upcoming "Star Wars" sequel aren't just obsessed fans ... they're artists.

The BBC reports that John Guth and Jeff Tweiten are have started a marathon wait outside the Cinerama in Seattle to see "Star Wars: Episode II -- Attack Of The Clones," a wait that will last until the film's scheduled opening May 16.

Ah, another pair of fans with more money than they know what to do with.

Does anyone think that after four months of living outside the theater, the theater personel will let them into the bldg? 4 months without a shower would be Stink City!
