Star Wars Insider celebrates the 40th anniversary with...
Time

Want to see the very definition of a “screw you” to fans?

Here’s the ad in the back of the newest edition of the Star Wars Insider. It’s promoting the next issue that hits newsstands on May 23rd, 2 days before the official 40th Anniversary.

And what is the main thing they’re talking about? The 1997 special edition re-release.

They might as well put a big middle finger on the cover.

Must be a typo. Fixed:

“Insider reveals how the Star Wars saga makes a triumphant return to the big screen in 2017!”

And has anyone here got the mad skills to repurpose the Rogue One trailer so that it depicts a rag-tag team of rebels trying to steal the Original Theatrical cut from the Evil Empire? That might go viral! 😄

Great idea Darth Cracker.

What a smashing good joke! 😃

You guys crack me up 😜

Maybe he’s someone we should tweet at when we do the open letter thing?

Good idea.

Kudos to RJ for tweeting that (& not removing it)

Sigh… “That which does not kill us might just annoy us over a long period of time.”

At this point, haven’t we been patient enough? It’s the freaking 40th anniversary. If they can’t make a simple direct statement on the matter…

This is what drives me nuts, they (@StarWars @Disney) gush about how much they love the SW fans onstage at Celebration, but they don’t respond to tweets about the OT, or even acknowledge it.

Today, fans on twitter are sharing the '77 poster alongside TLJ one & saying what a cool reference it is - apparently without even being aware that '77 movie no longer exists (officially).

This is the weirdest situation regarding a movie release in cinema history but there’s nothing to see here so move along - that’s what LF & Disney’s silence on the matter says to the fans they purport to love & adore so much, when they just want us to get back in the kitchen to make them a fricking sandwich.

I don’t think we’ll hear anything about the OOT at Celebration. We can only hope that they will release it this year low key

I don’t think we’ll hear anything either. And I don’t think we have a hope that they will release it, not this year, not 2020, not ever 😦 Thousands of fans going batshit mental over the 40th anniversary of a movie no-one is allowed to see anymore is kinda sickening. Lucasfilm denegrates its own legacy every year this drags on, while all and sundry kiss the ass of the stubborn old bastard who keeps a tight grip on the franchise even after selling it off for billion$.

Here’s Tom with the weather… 😉

I wasn’t expecting anything on a OUT trilogy release, rather hoping against hope for a restoration of the first movie for its 40th anniversary. Seeing the out-takes in the 4K thread has made me wonder all over again though. I guess we’ll know for sure after today’s screening of Star Wars & Rogue One?

4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

I wish someone could just ask Gareth Edwards, directly & on the record, which damn version of SW he saw in this 4K “restoration print”. Seems every time there’s an anniversary we all get our hopes up and then… (insert Vader-esque “Nooooooooooo!!!” here)

BFI: OT & TFA open air screenings in UK this August
Time

Hmmm… still no clearer which versions?

[BFI said:]

Fans of George Lucas’s cinematic classics will be offered the chance to be the first to see the remastered, original Star Wars films under the stars on a giant screen with state of the art sound and visuals, set against the incredible backdrops of Hampton Court Palace and Hatfield House, Hertfordshire. Launching on the 3 August at Hampton Court, the iconic films will be screened in order, one per evening for three nights, followed on Saturday 6 August by a special family day, giving younger fans the chance to take part in special Jedi master classes. Under the watchful eye of the Jedi Master and a Jedi Knight, young Padawans will don Jedi robes, learn the ways of the Force and discover how to master a lightsaber, before a screening of Star Wars: A New Hope.

Peter Mayhew Tweeting Star Wars "Journal of the Whills" script. "Big announcement" to follow...

Kinda disappointing that there was no #Chewscript post on May 4th.

I’m wondering now if that ‘special announcement’ thing is just “i’m playing Chewie in the Han Solo movie”?

Which to fair to Peter, actually is a big announcement for him and the character…

That is a fair point 😃

Nice to see all the Wookiee love on his birthday - and a case o’ Skywalker Wine:

No further #Chewscript tweets as yet though…
