And then until May 25 😃

Nah, let’s freeze ourselves till 2077

And then we have to battle a bunch of evolved otters for the last surviving copy of the OOT? 😉

George Lucas will show up in his own homemade General Grievous lifesupport suit with four actual lightsabers:

“Now i will fulfill my ‘final’ cut!”

For those of you expecting a special announcement with regards to the Star Wars blurays for May the 4th, here it is:

“Save $40 on the Star Wars Complete Saga Blu-ray box set”

http://www.starwars.com/news/star-wars-day-2017-deals

Star Wars had been steeply discounted at Best Buy for weeks. I don’t see how this precludes anything. Probably just an intern looking up what’s on sale at Best Buy.

When the Death Star, under command the command of Grand Moff Tarkin, followed the Millennium Falcon to Yavin via tracking device and was subsequently destroyed, it is almost certain that they did not keep the location of the Rebel Base a total secret from the rest of the Imperial Navy. As such, even though the Death Star was destroyed, the Base’s location was no longer secret. How, then, did the Rebellion have time for an awards ceremony before evacuating? Surely the arrival of some portion of the Imperial Navy was imminent.

Dramatic license

I wouldn’t be surprised if we never see another Complete Saga set and they just sell individual trilogies from now on

Abyss is supposedly coming this year. The 4K HDR transfer was supposedly done last year, according to the man himself. What the holdup is is beyond me.

First he needs to set up meeting with Ocean Spray and Sunkist executives to discuss preserving the fruit for future generations to enjoy.

Word on the street is they’re not that interested.

That burping toad creature in ROTJ. I always assumed that was an SE addition until I saw DE for the first time last summer.

Same. Something about the way it moves looks like CGI. The Wookieepedia page says it was a puppet; does anyone know if it was shot at a weird framerate or something like that?

wouldn’t be surprised if it was shot at a slow frame rate. It’s a pretty quick effect.

So I went back and watched the unedited clip. She literally says the Special Editions are his. She says she wouldn’t touch the SEs. No kidding. Literally no surprising info there, and should have no bearing on a potential release (or non release) of the theatricals.
