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.

Tatooine would make a lot of sense if Jabba is involved. I’d be fine with seeing it again in this context. I think there’s a difference between going there in a spinoff because it’s established that one of the characters lives there and going out of your way to invent contrived reasons to keep returning in every single film like it was in the PT.

If only there were a character that had family living on Tatooine in the PT.

I’m not trying to rail against this film, I just think recasting the character in a window of 10 years before we see the character again sets a weird precedent. Are we all ok with a future film in which someone else plays Luke in between the OT and the ST?

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)
Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (1992)
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)

Not a fan.

They can watch the original movies…

People will always want more. The storytelling should be able to go beyond the span of one actor’s career. James Bond is still going. Han Solo can too.

But the James Bond franchise gets rebooted and reimaged all the time. The timeline is mangled and moved around. Is that the direction people want for Star Wars?

Are we all ok with a future film in which someone else plays Luke in between the OT and the ST? Or a new actress playing Leia in the next trilogy film?

I don’t know how I feel about that.

I want Star Wars to go on forever. I want to see kids light up as the Millennium Falcon goes into hyperspace. That means characters are going to need recasting. Some will be good, and some will be bad, but the show must go on. Han Solo is right up there with Robin Hood and King Arthur as far as I’m concerned. The tales will keep on being told.

I get what you are saying but just tell someone else’s story.

I’m not 100% opposed to this film, I will see it and enjoy it I’m sure. Just like I enjoy eating raw cookie dough. Not a particularly good idea.

This film supposedly takes place over a 6 year span. That’s like, really weird. Basically like cutting Luke’s story in the OT into 1 two hour film.

Meh, the quality of the impression wasn’t what made me cringe so much as his overall vibe. He seemed really unduly pleased with himself. Anyway, to address the difference between impressions and acting, can you imagine if Chris Pine had done a Shatner impression for his Kirk? That’s what Ingruber as Han would amount to.

This Han Solo exists in same timeline as OT and is not a reboot of the entire franchise.

So that means that a young version needs to be an imitation?

I’m with joe. No thanks.

No, it is a generally bad idea to recast this character period.

Whoops my bad. Yeah they should have got Ford to play him with the CGI that de-aged Leia so convincingly.

Or I guess they shouldn’t have made the movie at all because there’s no possibility whatsoever that anyone could ever make a good Han - Solo movie period.

Good, glad we agree. Although, no one de-aged Leia. That bit is confusing.

I’d be surprised if they weren’t looking at such an idea for when Rebels finishes it’s run.

Perry King is still around, and could probably voice Han Solo like he did in the radio adaptations.

Or that guy from that awful movie with Ryan Reynold’s wife.

The key here is to highlight Luke’s awesome post ANH yellow jacket.

Mark Hamill is a talented voice actor.
Star Wars has had a series of successful animated television programs recently.

They should make a Star Wars cartoon/CGI series about Luke Skywalker that takes place after any of the OT films.

Extreme Prequel Plot Holes And Inconsistencies
Time

Cthulhunicron said:

Maybe before his turn to the dark side, Anakin mentioned to Obi-Wan that he and his wife were trying to have children, and he said “You know, I’d like my son to have my lightsaber when he’s old enough.” Again, since we’re ignoring the prequels, the backstory implied in the OT could have Jedis that don’t forbid romantic love. There’s nothing in the original trilogy that says Anakin never knew he had children until after they were born, just that he didn’t know he had a daughter.

They were both hidden:
“To protect you both from the Emperor, you were hidden from your father when you were born. The Emperor knew, as I did. If Anakin were to have any offspring, they would be a threat to him. That is the reason why your sister remains safely anonymous.”

That isn’t a PT plot hole, it is an OT one. Unless you just chalk it up to him lying.

How is that an OT plot hole?

When do you believe Anakin Skywalker told Obi Wan “please give this to my son when he is old enough”? Was it before or after he was hidden from his father at birth, per Obi Wan in ROTJ?

ROTJ only suggested that it was a potential plot hole, since it’s entirely possible that Anakin discussed his plans for the future with Obi-wan, even if he didn’t know for sure that he would have a son. The prequels confirmed it as a plot hole by not having this conversation, so it’s partly the fault of ROTJ, partly the fault of ROTS.

How does that even work? “I’m off to be evil now, Ben. Here is that lightsaber I always wanted to give my son I don’t know that I have. I won’t need it now, I’m building a red one!”

The plot hole is that Vader was not Luke’s father initially. He had no job after ANH per Lucas in Splinter. Anakin and Vader were different people. To fix this, they just made Obi-Wan a liar. It works really well if you see Obi Wan as a liar trying to get Luke to take the heroes journey.

Thanks for the lengthy feedback, MalaStrana. I am most likely going to release a 5.1 version with a higher compression rate, and could also fix some of the issues you’ve brought up. I have a sound engineer friend who’s going to have a crack at matching Vaders dubbed lines…I agree it’s not perfect.

Maybe it could be possible to retrieve Vader’s lines from Rebels which are from the exact same “JEJ’s voice age” era ?

Another aspect that appears to be missing from the Rogue One Vader audio that is a hallmark of the ANH voice is the vibration. RO has the mechanized microphone sound of being in the helmet, but the vibration in his voice is missing.

When it comes to Vader’s voice, I’ve found that one of the easiest ways to remove the age from JEJ voice is to apply a pitch change. Taking lines like ‘my apologies…’ and going from C to B gives it new life, where as “A city destroyed…” needs a change from c to c# as it appears that JEJ tries to go too low there when exhibiting anger but lacks the breath to do it now.

STAR WARS: REBELS - New animated series
Time

I , too, am disappointed this season is it. This has been a great bridge between everything Star Wars prior to 2015. It was always great to have a chance at seeing classic characters pop up each week. I’m not done with this era in the Star Wars universe yet, but I guess this and the Solo film will close the book for awhile.

Anyways, one thought I had was what if Hera is telling this story to someone as she is dropping off a very important child who has lost it’s parents, two of her longtime friends.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - FanEdit Ideas <strong><em>SPOILERS</em></strong>
Time

darthrush said:

Good idea overall!

Things I like about your idea:

-first scene is reveal of Death Star. THAT is quite the way to start the movie and I dig it.
-Making the first act shorter and more straightforward is easily the main positive of this editing strategy.

Possible problems with the idea:

-It would be pretty hard to effectively transition from the crawl and the starry background to the Death Star reveal without it feeling jarring. I suspect that some vfx work would need to be done.
-The feeling of hopping planets might still remain and it could be even more confusing since there would be no location subtitles (or would there?)

Overall, Id love to discuss and figure out a way to make this idea happen 😃

The Tie cuts across the screen to reveal the DS. Perhaps pan down to blank starfield, pause and then have it roar across.

To avoid the confusion, perhaps rewrite crawl to point out that Saw is stationed on Jedha.

One big tool fan editors are going to need are clean planet shots without titles. You could reuse Yavin from ANH and mask out the Falcon but it might stand out.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - FanEdit Ideas <strong><em>SPOILERS</em></strong>
Time

After having watched the Blu-Ray a few times this week, I think a solid edit of the first act should be re-ordered and cut down to:
-LFL/Long Time Ago…

–===Crawl===–
ROGUE ONE
Terror! The Galactic Empire’s grip on the galaxy has never been tighter. Those who stand opposed to their tyranny, the Rebel Alliance, have learned the Empire has developed a new SUPER WEAPON under the guidance of scientist Galen Erso.

In a race against time, the Rebellion has sent their best spy to find the scientist’s lost daughter, Jyn Erso, in hopes she can provide them with information on his work.

Following the murder of her mother by DIRECTOR KRENNIC, the young Erso was raised by the the extremist Saw Guerrera. The Rebellion must convince Guerrera to help reunite Jyn with her father as the information he has may be their LAST HOPE…

-Starfield faded to Tie-Fighter streaking across screen with Tarkin/Krennic/Death Star cone scene
-Wipe into shot of Saw’s robotic foot and the scene of Bodhi being brought before Saw
-Wipe into Wobani prison camp and Erso being rescued
-Wipe Jyn on Yavin
-Wipe into Bodhi having his mind probed
-Replace Coruscant dream sequence with one that features Jyn running while Krennic’s shuttle flies overhead, her hugging her father, her mother giving her the crystal, her mother being murdered with Jyn waking up on her way to Jedha as Galen says '…I do it for you, Stardust…"

I struggle with removing Cassian’s scene in which he learns about the Death Star and then murders one of Saw’s men but I think that all the information we gain from that scene (aside from his willingness to murder anyone) is learned in the briefing room on Yavin. It also cuts down on the planet hopping. If you were going to re-insert it, I would make it the second scene between Tarkin and Bodhi being brought before Saw.

Thoughts?

However, if you have Vader show him the vision, you are changing the character of Vader without knowing that is the direction they are taking him in future films. Anakin was redeemed in RotJ. Having him be evil from beyond the grave seems to undo that.
