4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

I wonder if they will really do it. I mean the fan edits are constantly spreading, someone must be a little concerned. Or at least money hungry enough to do this.

I just saw this today https://youtu.be/wesnVOgEYNQ

A few seconds in I realised it was actually a Harmy video. (feel free to repost if I missed a general SWDE ‘sightings’ type of thread) It’s still gaining popularity beyond the Outer Rim of the internet.

Is it really an Academy Award winning movie anymore? Especially when I think about Visual Effects, Editing, and Sound Mixing. All of those have been drastically altered.

Exactly.

I’m buying the Steelbook. I love me some Steelbooks.

It looks cool compared to the others. There was a cute K2 one as well.

Then I looked at what was available here and it’s just one design with a huge shitty black triangle on it that looks like garbage. Nice.

A lot of those trailer shots are just glamour shots. For instance Jyn vs Tie Fighter, Jyn in tunnel, etc

Sure but the missing beach narrative and the larger Forrest Whitaker plot were in most of the trailers. The latter being something that might actually still fit what they ended up with.

It’s kinda pathetic that extra features got worse in the BD era for some things. So many barebones releases or obvious money grabs that will be replaced by more extensive versions. I don’t care about 3D. Just make it worth the purchase.

His version is the theatrical.

I want to see the trailer version.

The crashed X Wing looks a tad out of scale.

Hahaha it’s not on the right layer, the whole thing is terrible

Ranking the Star Wars films
Time

Apparently this crazy question pushed them over the edge?

TV’s Frink said:

Beyond I’d like to know what you loved about ROTS and AOTC while loathing TFA to the point that it’s the worst Star Wars created.

I was curious to what the response would be.

Rankings though; it goes SW, ESB, ROTJ
I know that Empire is deeper and more dramatic, but I just have a thing for Tatooine and the Trench Run. Plus Peter Cushing and Alec Guinness.

STAR WARS: REBELS - New animated series
Time

I managed to get through the first season, unfortunately it didn’t stick with me in terms of what character or plot ideas they had at this early stage. I don’t like the animation style either to be honest.

The problem is that the division between ownership of what Disney/Lucasfilm and Fox has is unclear, at least to me. Is it at all likely that a deal to spend money on this kind of thing for a new release would happen while another corporation has the reigns? Do the people that aim to profit from such a thing get along with the people that now own the negatives?

The exhaust port wasn’t retconned, but rather the reactor. Erso didn’t tell them to shoot a torpedo through the exhaust port, he told them to find a way to blow the reactor. They still needed to study the plans to find the way to the reactor.

Interesting, as I say I need to rewatch it.

The idea people have in their mind of Disney execs focus grouping the most profitable ideas for the script and writing them down is just a complete fiction.

Perhaps but TFA doesn’t feel like a human being’s creative vision. I hope you’re right, really. The next sequel will cement my feelings towards this all, and I don’t want JJTrek part 2 all over again.

I’m fairly certain aspects of the story were developed with the story group (and quite likely the TFA writing team), but there’s nothing wrong with Johnson going solo on writing duties. In fact, I think it will be interesting to see a singular vision in that regard.

I guess it’s possible, it would be interesting even if he just got to flesh out an existing plan for the narrative. But I’m just suspicious that this is all a Lucasfilm board room creation after the 2-3 named writers on TFA. It’s probably all just done with a committee.
“I am not a committee” - Rian Johnson, probably.
