Maybe they could just make The People vs George Lucas: Special Edition with new scenes added.

Actually… that would be kinda of meta.

Delete the original DVD and only make available the edit…

I never heard about a follow up, interesting. I thought the original was pretty fair to be honest.

It does seem to have disappeared totally; it all went quiet, the website taken down, nothing since.

To be fair there isn’t a story there for a sequel so I wasn’t surprised.

George can make all the changes he wants. Just label it as a separate director’s cut, not the only version that should exist.

George isn’t the director for 66% of the OOT! ;D

Overall I’d like to see more new stories with Anthologies instead of exploring the backstory of a bunch of OT characters. There’s a lot of risk of de-mystifying characters in a bad way (See PT for a zillion examples of this)

Yep.

New stuff please Disney.

Why is Sidious trying to get the Queen to sign the treaty? If she signs the treaty there’s no invasion and his plan to use the crisis to become chancellor falls apart!!! It DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE.

He’s calling her bluff because he knows she won’t, and therefore the crisis will happen and it covers his tracks i.e. “I tried in vain to stop it”.

That makes no sense for Sidious… no one outside of the Trade Federation guys is even aware he exists! I suppose it could make sense for Senator Palpatine to try and get her to do it… but Sidious is the one prodding the Trade Federation to get her to do it and no one knows that he’s actually Palpatine.

I suppose so - ha!

Star Wars "Official" Canon Content Thread
Time

Random question but you never know.

I’m after the hardback UK edition of Dark Disciple published by Century (ISBN 9781780893747) in as close to mint as possible.

Anyone got it, read it, and might want to sell me to complete my collection of UK Century new canon hardbacks?

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

Good idea.

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! 😄

This is GENIUS!

Did anyone notice how the trailer sorta mimicked the style of the first TFA teaser?

  1. Open on a landscape with a jumpscare and low music
  2. Narration over trailer footage from a strange voice
  3. BB-8 running (a stretch)
  4. Brief look at Kylo Ren with his lightsabre near the end
  5. Frantic speeding of ships / speeders

There is surely more, but I’ve only seen the trailer twice and this is all that can come to mind. If this is spoiler talk, I’ll move it.

Said exactly that to my Mrs so you’re not alone!

I personally think that anything officially released (trailers, posters) is fair game in the non spoiler thread (otherwise there’s not much to talk about!). But if others feel strongly otherwise, then we can shut it down.

Agree totally on the balance on the force stuff there DominicCobb…

The teaser trailer!

Either Luke has a lesson to learn - that the Jedi are ultimately necessary and not a root cause of suffering/evil - or 😦

Sounds to me like they have a little learning to do from each other - Rey needs Luke for her training, but old Luke needs the youthful Rey to give him back a little hope…

As Max von Tekka (sic) said “Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the Force…”
