OK Lucasfilm, It's Time To Make That Star Wars: Shadows Of The Empire Movie

Written by  Cinemablend

After three weeks of release, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has brought in about $615 million worldwide. Between the action, excitement, and resurrection of the classic era of Star Wars lore, its success has shown that the Force is strong with the franchise, even without an episodic title attached to it.

It is moments like this that embolden people to take big risks, splash a little bravado into the tank, and do something extremely daring. Which is why, at least in my humble opinion, it's time Lucasfilm get off of their collective rears and bring to life one of the most well regarded Star Wars stories to life on the silver screen: Star Wars: Shadows of The Empire.

Published in 1996, author Steve Perry's entry into what's now designated the Star Wars Legends canon of discarded expanded universe fiction told the story of Dash Rendar, a bounty hunter hired to help track down the frozen Han Solo, as his body was being transported by Boba Fett to Jabba The Hutt. Taking place between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, Shadows of The Empire was the bridge that introduced a rather formidable villain: Prince Xizor. A shipping magnate, and head of the Black Sun crime syndicate, Xizor had designs to replace Darth Vader as Emperor Palpatine's right hand man.

Yes please! I loved the book, I loved the Nintendo 64 game, I want to see my beloved outrider on the big screen. The YT-2400 known as the outrider is my favorite star wars vessel. If they made a rogue squadron remake for the wii and made this and a few others downloadable content I would have my dad rehook up his wii just to play it.
