Han - Solo Movie
Time

Who thinks Boba Fett, Jabba the Hutt and Vader will appear in this?

I think the real reason that Han Solo has such an attachment with the Falcon, is because he lost friends near to him on that ship.

I hope the Falcon looks a little different, as he made a lot of modifications to that ship. I pray they get that right. I see the cockpit inside looks different, that’s good.

I also hope that from day one, the Falcon still has hyperdrive issues and just shuts down all the time. I can see Woody asking Han, “You still haven’t fixed that thing?”

Most pointless SE change?
Time

psychic squidward said:

I say it was the removal of the wolf guy, the SE color saturations, and CGI jabba. Jabba is here because we were supposed to build up suspense to see what jabba looked like in ROTJ but the surprise had to be ruined, right george?

build up suspense? Since 1983, everybody has seen Jabba and knows what he looks like. If you’re talking about new audiences that haven’t seen Star Wars ever, then yes, he ruined the surprise. I liked the scene, due to the fact, it showed that Han Solo was in dire need of money, and this charter was going to set him straight with Jabba. When things went south and Luke mentioned the princess had money and the reward would be more well than you can imagine, he took the chance, because he knew he would never be able to go anywhere without somebody recognizing him and collecting the bounty he had on his head.

That deleted scene incorporated back into the film, was important for us viewers old and new to know he had to do what he had to do for the money, regardless if that wasn’t really who he was. We knew Jabba would put a price on his head, if he didn’t deliver the money. Solo was asking for a little time, that’s what he got.

He didn’t take the money to Jabba after the awards ceremony is because the Empire was looking for the Falcon and everyone knew Captain Solo was the pilot, so the Empire already had a bounty out for him during the Battle of Yavin, and Jabba would have just captured him after he delivered his money to the gangster, and he would have turned him in to the Empire and collected another large sum of money.

As far as a SE pointless change. I always hated the, “Alert my Star Destroyer to prepare for my arrival.” It wasn’t needed and took us away from the Falcon as it was trying to escape Bespin. I wanted to see the original, in fact, I wanted to see the extended Lando and Luke scene atop the Falcon. Mark Hamill broke his thumb I think, or something like that.

This is the scene I’m referring too

Star Wars Deleted Scenes - Reincorporated?
Time

I would like to be a part of this team to clean up anything related to the deleted scenes. I would love to see these scenes reincorporated into the film. Yes, it slows down the pacing of the film, and most of them are unnecessary, but, in a way, they are part of that universe. Just look at Biggs with his cape. I seem to remember a certain Director wearing one in another Star Wars film recently released.

I had the privilege of meeting Garrick Hagon, I took a picture with him and got his autograph, he’s a really nice guy, and I asked him questions about those deleted scenes. He basically said the same things, like he did in that one documentary. I have a photo with him, if anyone doesn’t believe me. I also met Anthony Forrest, aka Fixer, he had some stories too. I got a picture with him as well.

I can’t wait to see what deleted scenes there are for Rogue One, of course, we won’t see all of them, that’s for sure.

6 film trilogy "Faces" Covers
Time

I do love your Episode III cover with Anakin, that’s a good choice. I will try and add a clone over your Jango Fett, then add the battle of Geonosis in the original color.

Time

I would not show the second eye, as that is what the originals look like.

I like the covers, but for

TPM, definitely keep Darth Maul, but I would use a Naboo starfighter or maybe the queen’s ship. (EDIT) now that I think about it, maybe use Darth Maul’s ship. One of the three is fine.

AOTC, I would keep Fett, but I would use the battle of Geonosis to match the Hoth battle on TESB.

ROTS, I would use the Emperor or maybe even Anakin for the face, and I would keep the lightsaber fight between Anakin and Obi-wan, just like the ROTJ original with Vader and Luke.

This way, the themes match.

Feedback Please - Original Trilogy "Poster"
Time

using that theory, are you going to add Jango Fett to the prequel trilogy. Boba Fett should be on this one I think. Where’s the Emperor? Or are you going to add Senator Palpatine to the Prequel trilogy as well? It will get real crowded. I think you should consider swapping out one of those stormtroopers with Fett or the Emperor.

HI-Res Poster Art
Time

Thanks Willrow-Hood, I just noticed one mistake on the RotS poster, Mon Mothma is quite happy for a film that is supposed to be sad, I need to change that. I want to work with the color palette on that poster as well, maybe even swap out the duel with a better picture of the duel with better colors.

I’m like George, I’m never happy with my work and try and improve on it constantly. I have a family and work, so it makes it very hard to put just a few minutes a day on it.

Edit: I forgot to add the droids. I’m going to put Grievous on the Attack of the Clones poster, then shift a few characters around on the ROTS poster and maybe see if I can add the Emperor as well.

HI-Res Poster Art
Time

I have been working on this for awhile, a long while. I wanted to capture the 1997 SE Drew Struzan poster feel that he did for the original Trilogy, but for the Prequels. I did many versions of this, but today, I’m going to reveal what I have done so far. I need input as to what I should do, what I should delete, and what I should keep. Like I said, I have been improving on this multiple times. I need to know what I can do to fix it.

Personally, I don’t like how the Episode III Revenge of the Sith poster turned out. I can’t figure out what is wrong with it or even how to fix it. I have also accounted for Star Wars Rogue One and wanted to hint at that film as well.

Let me know what you think.

Most pointless SE change?
Time

I didn’t get a few changes that George decided to change, for instance…

o The Ben Kenobi scream - First it sounded like an elephant, but it sounded more scarier, then in 1997 SE, it was like a whistle, lol. Then they changed it yet again in the dvd release in 2004.

o The Luke falling down the shaft scream or no scream? It’s clear he didn’t want to add that in the first place, but maybe he ran out of money and just said screw it, but in 1997, he added the Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! Which sounded a bit ridiculous, but then in the 2004 dvd release, it disappeared.

This leads me to believe his employees must have said this doesn’t look or sound right, do you want to change this George? Yeah, just come up with something.

o I wish he would have made the Ewoks more ferocious and started chewing on the stormtroopers and made it more scarier. The stormtroopers would be running in horror and scared. They look harmless, but make them mad and you have a Wolverine/Tasmanian Devil on your hands.

With just about everyone wearing a helmet, a mask, or a suit, you can always go and change those things that you dislike about the film. You can add scenes to make the film better. As long as it doesn’t contain any scenes with Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher or Harrison Ford.

One of those scenes I would reshoot is the Wampa breaking in scene on Hoth. I understand why it was cut, it was a horrible suit to begin with, but also, the pace of the film. I still would like to see it reshot.

I’m not a purist, but I think some things should be changed, NOT everything, just a few things, and keep some of the older scenes of the Original film. I know if it’s not broken don’t mess with it, but I prefer to make the changes.

4 simple custom blu-ray and DVD covers to hold I-III, IV-VI, VII, and Bonus Materials
Time

Nice Natedeug. You should use the production art for Episode I, II, III and VII. Also, instead of the burned Vader mask, I would use Rey or Luke artwork for The Force Awakens. I would lose the Episode I, II, and III. Just use the name, like The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. But leave the Roman numerals on the spines.

This way it’s all production art and names.

Rogue One * <em>Spoilers</em> * Thread
Time

Forgive me if somebody already stated this, but, I think the opening of Rogue One A Star Wars Story should open much like how Superman II opened, with flashbacks of what came before. They can show the beginning of the Empire from Revenge of the Sith until just before this story begins.

Have flashbacks of the Emperor and the Senate, Vader wiping out the remaining Jedi and alien worlds, more building of the space station known as the “Death Star.” with the John Williams Imperial March theme in the background.

That’s how I would do it. It’s different from the crawl.

They can also incorporate Mon Mothma scenes from ROTS into this as well.
