ROTS doesn’t have a single outdoor location shot in the entire movie. It was filmed entirely on a soundstage, which is why the outdoor scenes look incredibly fake.

Oh yeah?

Could we not have this argument here? It has nothing to do with anything.

Yeah, let’s stop.

the film uses plenty of Second Unit background plates as a basis for its otherworldly settings

So, yeah.

Some of the most exotic locations just CAN’T be filmed in real places, and can only be chromakeyed in. But that still requires a lot of technical artists and talent. CGI and blue/green screens are not inherently bad things. You should never blame the tool for the shortcomings of the craftsman.

The models look perfect as they are. They look as good today as they did back then. Something that can;t be said for the CG models in the prequels.

There are plenty of ships in the PT that were real physical models, you know.

In fact, the PT had more sets and models than the entire OT. But they still had to use CGI because some things were impossible to make without it. And that’s not a bad thing.

The “$1000 challenge” is going amazingly well. We are now just over £300 until that total is reached. 😃

Come on guys, I bet if it was a Twilight Fan edit I’d already be out 1,000 bucks.

Damn. That must be one bad love story if the PT beats it.

At least with AOTC, the actors knew why their characters would fall in love with each other.

Ha no. Natalie had no reason to even like Anni. Nor did anyone else.

I rest my case.

Edward kidnaps Bella, forbids her from seeing her best friend, stalks her, and spies on her while she sleeps. Anakin never does anything that cruel to Padme, and she is also much more confident and strong-willed than Bella.

Ah, yes, “reasons”.

  1. Jedi use Ilum crystals, which only come in blue and green. Sith use synthetic crystals, which only come in red.
  2. Jedi sentinels use blue crystals while Jedi consulars use green.
  3. Kyber crystal colours reflect the affiliation/temperament of their users.

Blah blah blah bullshit.

Aesthetics and symbolism are the only valid reasons for any lightsaber colour.

How is it “bullshit”?

Since Luke’s green lightsaber is one of the better elements* of ROTJ, I’d prefer it not be re-coloured blue.

*Divorced from the nonsense of the prequels, Luke’s green lightsaber signifies his individuality and distinctiveness from the Jedi who came before him.

There are REASONS some lightsabers are blue and others are green.

I think having more troopers tones down the absurdity in a way. The humor in the original version is “Wait a minute. You’re not the one who chases us. We’re supposed to be chasing you. That’s ridiculous”. In the SE, it’s now just, “Aha, reinforcements! The tables have turned!”.

That’s not a bad thing, is it?

While I agree the Empire should use minimal color, it just doesn’t make sense to wear white. Besides, it’s already been implemented in some weird way with the shoretroopers.

The white was intentional, and there is no logical need for changing either.
And just because Disney got away from many of Lucas’ concepts, does not mean you have to change Lucas movies to resemble Disney’s ideas.
Not to mention this Shoretrooper idea by Disney is idiotic. There is no hiding on a beach. But they can sell more Stormtroopers for sure.

Lucasfilm makes the creative choices, not Disney.

Can I have an invite?

I’ve been trying to reach you for over a month. Please answer me!

Well it obviously isn’t about a myspleen invite since those are closed.

It’s about something else. We were doing a project together, and after a good month of us talking to each other through email and OT private messaging, suddenly he never replied for another month.

The canon firmly establishes that ROTJ takes place one year after the events of TESB.

How?

Every bit of official information around says that in the Star Wars universe, TESB takes place 3 ABY (3 years after the Battle of Yavin), and ROTJ takes place 4 ABY.
