They need to set it between Episodes 5 and 6. Essentially just My Dinner With Andre set in Yoda’s hut where they wax rhapsodic about their early lives and wonder just how everything went so wrong.

Wow, I don’t even merit a juvenile personal attack? I’m hurt. When have you ever contributed one positive thing to this site in the two plus years you’ve been stinking up the joint? You don’t just beat a dead horse, you pulverized it, inhaled it and breathed it out again.

You know I had a savage post ready for you Wook, but I’m just going to take the high road. I’ve had very positive engagements and collaborations with people off here that I’ve met through this forum. I’m thankful for that. This used to be THE place for original trilogy fans, and there are definitely still lots of great people here on OT.com. I’ve had some of them help me out when I needed a hand, and I’ve had others thank me in PMs for taking up for them or saying what they wanted to say. Apparently these general threads about rehash movies carry all the weight in your eyes, though, so if that’s how you feel. Good for you. I know what kind of person you are. When you were taking severe criticism from a few members over the 40th anniversary letter you penned to Disney and Lucasfilm, I sent you a heartfelt, unsolicited PM thanking you for your hard work and commitment, even though we didn’t agree on the execution. You didn’t even bother to respond.

I think that says something about your character and mine.

I wouldn’t even pretend to be a valuable or important member of this forum. If you think you’re slighting my ego by saying otherwise, you are not. I’m just someone who likes and cares about these original films, and how they inspired me and no doubt formed my outlook on life in many ways from a very young age. This used to be what the forum was about, and what united nearly all members here. Now there are these new films, and you know what? That’s fine. If you like them you like them. But you cannot even tolerate opposition. Myself and a few other posters are persistent but not belligerent. You object to our persistence? So you’re insecure, deal with it. You like what you like and we like what we like. I don’t see you or Anchor jumping in a prequel trilogy thread and telling OTers to knock off their criticism or clear the thread if they don’t have anything nice to say. But if it’s a movie you like, that’s a different story? Nice standard you have there.

As long as there are moderators on this board, you can expect to be asked - again - to step away from discussions that have nothing to do with whether of not Disney is going to release the 77 film properly.

My post didn’t suggest that ST fans shouldn’t be welcomed here. If that was your (defensive) take, I would advise to please read again.

What I did was I explained that it should not be a surprise that many people here for the original trilogy dislike these films both individually and on a greater level. I’ve always said that if someone can stand criticism of something they like, and engage in a civil manner, I will always behave in the same way. Most of the Disney ST fans cannot and they are responded to in kind. If you want to banish me or any OOT-only poster to OOT-only threads, and make these general threads a safe space devoid of ST criticism, then put it in the rules somewhere and I will do you a favor. You won’t even have to take moderator action or ask me to leave. I will do it of my own volition, as that is not the type of community I want to belong to.

I understand you don’t dig the new films. I didnt dig any Star Wars releases between 1980 and 2015. I didn’t take that out on the people who did.

You didn’t like Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, or the prequels, so when people mercilessly criticize them, you turn your back and look the other way.

But when people criticize the movies you do like, you get defensive and suddenly its time to put on the moderator hat.

There’s a word for that. It starts with an h…

Let me be clear here since you seem to struggle with subtlety. Reel it in. Your opinion isn’t the only one.

Let me be clear here, since you seem rude and hostile towards people who make you feel insecure and uncomfortable about being a middle age man in pajamas enjoying his Summer of Rogue One. If you weren’t a hypocrite and an asshole, I wouldn’t respond to you in this way. I give people what they give back. There are numerous ST fans and PT fans I’ve come across on this forum that I treat with respect because they act the same way. When someone acts like an insecure child, they deserve to be treated like an insecure child. If you want to ban me because I dared to strike against your authority, then go ahead. It won’t change your insecurity or your hypocrisy.

My only apology would be to Jay, whose forum this is. He’s always been a cool and fair man and I regret for him the hostility these altercations cause on his board.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with “a Kenobi movie”. If this were a one-off, and it actually had a vision or something important to say, while there were otherwise new stories and new adventures for a new generation, that would be great.

The problem is that this is now 1…2…3…4…5…6… rehashes. Zero, nada, nothing new.

The movies aren’t any good. They have nothing to say to other than “hey, people liked these Star Wars characters 40 years ago, let’s put them all back on screen and surround them with bright distracting flashy things and make money off it”.

It’s junk. It’s garbage. It ain’t bringing back the OOT. If you want to create your own forum called Sequal Trilogy.com, I am not such a miserable sob that I would follow you there and deny you your entertainment. Have at it.

But as long as the site is called original trilogy.com, and there are those of us who are still motivated by trying to get the original original trilogy released, and see this junk and trash as obstacles in the way, yes you can expect to be mocked by some of us here for enabling the furtherance of such things.

Fink, every time you mock the prequels, an angel gets its wings.

Say something bad about Disney though, and hell hath no fury like a Fink scorned.

So far this thread can be summed up as follows:

A bunch of yaks and shills being castigated for eating the same dog food, film after film.
Their reply?
“But it’s good dog food!”

Oh well. Disney, please announce another rehash before the end of this year. How about a Bib Fortuna movie. Throw these dogs a frickin’ bone.

You know, the one that doesn’t completely rely on my foreknowledge of the other Star Wars films in order to be coherent.

The rehashes they made weren’t even remotely coherent.

Rehash all the things lol

If there was any standalone that was an acceptable use for established characters, this would be it - it’s what everyone wanted since the whole standalone concept was announced.

How many Star Wars related films has Disney made or have in production?
1…2…3…4…5…6…am I missing any?

Not a single new story? That’s what corporations do. They buy existing IP. They scavenger it down to the very bone. All your $$s at a time until there is nothing left but you jerking around to your R2 figurine screaming “OMG DISNEY. STAR WARS. DISNEY. STAR WARS. I LOVE DISNEY I LOVE STAR WARS OMG OMG OMG!”

That is hardly the ethos the original three films aspired to be.

It’s all gone quiet in OOT Disney rumour-land.

I have a feeling that Lucasfilm wasn’t interested. I remember some of his comments regarding a potential pitch, and while I don’t know where to find those or if I even have access to them anymore, it sounded to me like the way he framed his offer had less to do with Star Wars than it did some kind of proof of concept. If that’s how he framed it then I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t get any offers.

He probably didn’t get any offers because Kathleen Kennedy isn’t going to do ****.

It’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan. We have new movies and animated series and books and so much going on, but it’s also a sad time to be a Star Wars fan, because it’s obvious history has been rewritten and the Star Wars we all know that started all of this will not be widely known to future generations.

I LOVE DISNEY. I LOVE STAR WARS. DISNEY. STAR WARS. OMG OMG OMG

Should Vader and The Emperor even know who Yoda is?
Time

mfastx said:
It’s heavily implied that Yoda has come into contact with both of them before. In ESB he talks about how strong Luke’s father was, and in ROTJ he tells Luke to not underestimate the Emperor. He went into hiding on some random remote planet, it’s much less far fetched that they never went after him as opposed to Vader going after Luke who’s “hiding” with his family.

Where was it heavily implied? There’s no implication Yoda ever met any of these people in the OT. He watched Luke from the other side of the galaxy. He was in communication with Obi-Wan’s spirit. He was obviously aware that all of the other Jedi had been purged by Vader and the Emperor.

I mean, watching the movies, Dagobah could have been Yoda’s home planet for all you know. Obi-Wan could have gone there to train when he was younger and Vader didn’t know about it. Don’t tell me there’s some other explanation in a book somewhere. If it’s not in the movie, it’s not relevant.

Should Vader and The Emperor even know who Yoda is?

Nope. I always assumed they had no clue, otherwise they would have attacked Dagobah and tried to eliminate him. Vader mentions Obi-Wan’s name repeatedly, but never mentions Yoda in the OT.

There was that scene with the rathtars and the smugglers confronting Han in TFA.

Perhaps the worst scene/series of scenes in TFA.

Agreed. One of the worst scenes in any Star Wars movie.




Swap out the Natalie Portman pic for one with the rathtars. It goes better with the rest.

Nope. A supposedly strong character dying because of a broken heart (especially immediately after having two babies to care for) is possibly the dumbest thing in the eight movies so far.

Weird goofy nonsense off-tone scene with bad cartoon CGI is the tie that binds all of those scenes and the rathtar abomination.

The stupid Portman plotline belongs next to classic TFA scenes like Captain Phasma lowering the shields, and people looking up at the sky and seeing stars get sucked up into a machine light years away in real time.

I would gladly wear all of these. But then, I’ve always loved Disney and I’ve loved Star Wars since 77. And I’ve loved just about every film Kennedy has been producer or executive producer on.
