Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **
Time

Threepio and R2 can be shoe horned into an embarrassing cameo if they choose to show right up to the moment Han and Chewie enter Mos Eisley, just before they meet Obiwan.

Episode VIII Discussion *SPOILER THREAD*

Ugh. I mean sure I get it. But it only serves to highlight the general design problems with the First Order. Why are they even using basic TIE Fighters at all? Plus if white solar panels (wat) were specifically chosen how come they’re missing on this model?

The Jabba Movie
Time

The protagonist would have to be someone in his circle trying to gain favour or obtain wealth, or just escape. Something like that. Then you can have lots of underworld betrayals and clashes like a real gangster movie. We can revive Nar Shardaa, and throw in Bossk and 4-LOM for good measure. Problem is Jabba is presented as a 100% evil mollusc who lives like a medieval lord throwing people to their deaths and stuff, not a calculating mastermind.

Disney can put out a “Complete Skywalker Family Saga” set in 2020. I just hope they also do a OOT set for those who bought the ST on release and hate the Prequels.

This sounds reasonable.

Too reasonable…

The rest of the deleted scenes like stuff from the Celebration this year? Probably without the ones from the last set though.

When Did The Star Wars Prequels Become Cool?

Uh. So anyway…

I should point out Anakin and other prequel characters appear in Disney theme parks, although Mr. Binks is noticeably absent. There is still a moderate level of prequel merchandising even though the new films dominate the toy lines and Episode III was 12 years ago.

I guess? Theme parks feel like a niche area to me, but I have no idea what kind of broad appeal they have beyond the families who can afford them. The Star Wars Land idea is coming I guess. And there are a lot of toys out there I suppose. But talking of basic stuff like coffee cups, socks, t-shirts etc. there’s usually Vader and all the familiar faces. The Story Spinoff movies are all catering to the same idea, though obviously a few winks to the PT are present.

Maybe ol’ Ben Kenobi will encounter a dark side force user who will deliver some force lightning to his face, making him go from McGregor to Guinness instantly.

Well this is a horrible idea, so yes.

The internet and its use of stupid gifs and captions is the only reason the prequels have lasted even if this long in the public consciousness. They don’t sell a lot of merch relating to it, and the new movies have consolidated the same imagery of Darth Vader, R2-D2 and Chewbacca which is what is iconic to the masses.

RotJ Colour Grading

I always assumed it was film stocks. Empire still has that washed out 70s look, where it’s often really dark but also lower contrast elsewhere. The further you get into the 80s the more … well 80s it looks.

Everyone who cares has the Harmy editions, or whichever they please. All the other general audience consumers will just buy whatever is placed in front of them.
