Carrie Fisher Gem from Sci-Fi Channel - 7,8,9??

Hello Everybody,

Just an average browser, after seeing all the stuff, I was curious about some footage I'd recorded over the years, most of what I have I have seen on Myspleen, but when going through some tapes I found something I had completely forgotten about.

In 1997(?) the Sci-Fi channel had a special showing of all 3 classic star wars films honoring the special editions, what was so great about this was that Carrie Fisher Hosted and at every commercial break, she shared some very interesting commentary including David Prowse's nickname, the original voice for C-3PO, taping her breasts, inspiration for Yoda, Ewok jokes, and various other tidbits. Very enjoyable and an interesting perspective from Carrie. Then at the very end, I heard something and I said to myself, no she didn't, she did not say what I just thought she said. She did! She basically says, very clearly and confidently, that episodes 7,8,9 do exist. This is in 1997, NOT prior to Empire and Jedi, in which he says he squeezed everything into those episodes and he and had nothing left.
QUOTE from Carrie: "As you may know the films you've just seen are only the middle three chapters in George Lucas's master plan for a nine part saga, so will there be sequals? Well I can tell you I've had conversations with George and heard various rumors, but so far they are only rumors" then talk about how much they would cost . Then quote, "but if additional star wars movies are made, I would be glad to be a part of them" The rumors were that they would be made, NOT that chapters 7,8,9 exist. There is always hope.
Anyone else recall seeing this?

This may be old news, but I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere online and I do a lot of reading. Unfortunitly, the quality of my tape is pretty poor, I had recorded all 3 movies in EP mode on an 8 hour tape. Then I went back and pretty poorly cut out all the commentary pieces and put them onto the end of my Making of Star Wars collection, which also was poor quality. I was 16 and only had VCR's to work with no computer.

I have recorded it to a DVD via a Panasonic Recorder to preserve this piece and I would love to make it available to anybody who would like to see it. Even better if I could get it to Rik, he could put in on Myspleen for everybody. And i would like to take this time to thank everybody for all their hardwork and gifts provided both here and myspleen. Rik, you can email me at jra166@ptd.net, and I will send this to you, I'm not sure exaclty how big the file is off hand, but it's only about 20 minutes. You may know of a better way of doing this than e-mail.

SciFi also had Billy-Dee Williams host the OT and Making of Specials in 1996. ("Star Wars : The Ultimate Experience : Hosted by Billy-Dee Williams" [in Widescreen] is the title of the showings) I've got those in LP mode. Here's an example of the capture i can do. (LP VCR tape to MiniDV to iMovie...everything tends to come out dark)

I'm sure someone could do better, i can send the tapes to someone who would like to capture them. I haven't watched them in a while, and can't remember if there's anything super interesting, but for the sake of preservation having these all in the one place, with the Carrie clips, might be nice.

I would love a copy of this on dvd, and would also be able to upload it to a.b.starwars.
Let me what you think.

Some of the material is in the hands of someone more technologically proficient then I am.

There is 30+ minutes of Billy Dee footage which has been adequately transfered to DVDr. (2+ gigs) There are no bells or whistles, just the straight footage.

I haven't heard back from the creator of this thread jra166, to coordinate the dvdr with his Carrie footage. It make sense to have them both together. But if too much time passes, the Billy stuff will be put out somehow.

I was just about to post and say that I had an MP3 somewhere of Mark Hamill talking about episodes 7 and onward... then i realised how old this thread is and that the focus has since become gathering together the hosting segments from Carrie Fisher and Billy Dee Williams.

If there's still interest, in March I can see if I can find my tapes of the airings with the Billy Dee intros. It probably doesn't even look any better than the screenshot that none posted. Maybe it even looks worse.

I used to be very active on this forum. I’m not really anymore. Hi everybody. You’re all awesome. Keep up the good work.

I'm still interested. Too bad jra166 doesn't seem to be around. Combining this with the Carrie Fisher footage from sci-fi would be great.
