The Kenobi Movie
Time

I wouldn’t mind if they DIDN’T set this during the time between III and IV, but instead in the time leading up to III.

But they will probably put this in the familiar places with the familiar characters and you know what, I will still love it and it will still be great.

Higher ticket prices go straight the the studios. That’s why snack prices are so ridiculous- it’s the primary revenue stream for most theaters, especially independent ones.

This. Movies like Star Wars, original Spider-Man, Pixar films see 80-90% ticket sales go directly to the studios the first 2 weeks. So, if you charge, say, $10 per ticket, you might make $200 per 100 tickets sold as opposed to the $800 the studio makes.

When the theater’s profit share goes up (40% in week 5), you are lucky to get 20 people per show.

Rise of the Rebellion: A Rogue One Edit

Right, I would remove the Coruscant dream sequence. It is only important because he calls her ‘Stardust’ but that information can be added to the new dream as a voiceover. As the final words she hears before she wakes up.

Again, this is your vision. Don’t let me hijack it. I just like removing the time jumps and planet hopping and getting right to it.

I likes lot of what you have done. Looks good.

I still think from a story telling standpoint that the Krennic/Erso scene in the beginning is better suited as A dream for Jyn as she is on board with Cassian. Start the film with the Death Star cone scene. It removes all time jumps that way. Just cut up the scene into flashes and recolor it like Rey’s force vision or Anakin’s vision.

Revenge of the Sith (The New Canon Cut)
Time

I know this is probably really late to the party but I’ve been thinking about the Vader Awakens scene a lot lately, and I think you can use parts from Rebels and the OT to make Vader’s final turn more powerful.

E: Anakin? Can you hear me?
V: Where is Padme?
E: In your anger, you killed her

Begin crushing stuff, Sound of using force builds

V: You must use the power of the dark side to save her
E: I’m afraid, my friend, she is lost

Full room crushing
E: Anakin…
V: Anakin Skywalker was broken. That name no longer has any meaning to me.
E: Rise, my friend. I look forward to completing your training.
V: Yes, master.

Breaks free, emperor smile and cackle from ROTJ.

This scene always bothered me, besides the campy scream, because we don’t see Vader make that pivot from sympathetic but misguided villain to cold blood sith lord. All the dialogue above can be pieced together from multiple sources.

Also, has anyone ever taken Palpatine dialog from the OT and used it to replace his over the top performance post-Windu death?

I’m glad they are ending on their own terms, instead of meandering on and declining in quality (Big Bang, Doctor Who under Moffat, etc) just to make more episodes. Hopefully we can have a quality season with no filler.

The Big Bang Theory was never good.

Disappointing Season 4 for REBELS will be its last. Can’t Filoni just have the crew do other shit in different regions of the galaxy while events in the OG OT are habbening?

I could see some of the characters of Rebels being part of the new show they are planning. He carried over his favorites from Clone Wars.

I honestly forgot what happened to that Sergio Leone styled bounty hunter from The Clone Wars series. Strange since I watched it all, chronological order.

I believe Filoni is ambiguous with the fates of his favorites (Ahsoka, Cade, Rex,etc) so he can keep their stories alive.

I agree with you on some spilling over into live action. I’ve got a funny feeling about Ezra and VIII

Is the musical cue for Binary Twin Sunset derived from some other piece or was it a 100% unique creation? Because, still, to this day it is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I’ve ever heard.

I assume you’re talking about the Force theme and not William’s first attempt at the scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYXLmHmTrzU

I don’t know if the Force theme had its inspiration in an earlier piece, that would be interesting to learn.

No, the specific cue for Binary Sunset. The entire theme (and score) are tremendous but the cue used for the Binary Sunset, with the single instrument leading and bringing in the whole orchestra as Luke looks up gives goosebumps every time. Ending it with a woodwind playing the Rebel Fanfare just further shows what an amazing job Williams did on this film.

When Did The Star Wars Prequels Become Cool?
Time

I actually enjoy the PT in so much that I enjoy any non-EU Star Wars materials. The fatal flaws of the PT can never be glossed over. To me, it boils down to 2 points:

Hayden makes the Anakin character wholly unlikeable and portrays him as creepy. You never feel anything over his fall from grace bc you don’t care for him at any point. You can blame George’s dialogue all you want but good actors like Ford/Fisher took some cringe worthy stuff and made it work because of their portrayals of the characters.

AOTC is totally and utterly confusing. George put in plot threads that were never resolved or were leftover from other versions of the script. If George would ever have any humility over the film, I would actually like to see him try a new directors cut of this film that films new scenes, uses alternate takes, updates the CGI and restructures the film in a non-confusing manner. Ask Kathleen Kennedy or any of his other friends for help in fixing this mess.

I don’t mind Jar Jar Binks any more (that doesn’t make him good) and ROTS on the whole is a good watch (despite the slow middle). The battle droids are less annoying bc of Clone Wars. In fact, Clone Wars has changed my opinion on a lot of the characters of the PT.

Why would Kathleen Kennedy have any say whatsoever on camera setups anyway.

She should start acting like a producer IMO.

You do realize she is also the president of LFL, correct?

No and was built from the ground up with that in mind.

So, is this canon? Well, no, but everything in it fits canon. Motz explained that it’s sort of like hearing the story of what happened, but from a child.

The conversations/events, etc that happen are not canon, however, whether a character is dead or alive is because it has to ‘fit’ in the canon.

Just happen to catch the Lego Star Wars show the other day while flipping channels and saw that one of the main Rebel characters was featured. This program takes place between ESB and ROTJ, so pretty clear this one survives the series finale.

Han not being portrayed right is the best of reasons to split but the worse problem the film could have had.

And it took the bosses at Lucasfilm five months to realize this? When the heck did they decide to start watching the footage?

Word is Kasden and the on set LFL rep were at odds with them often throughout filming.
