The teaser for Rogue One was released in April 2016 little over a week after the TFA Blu-ray hit shelves. Why would they change? It makes great financial sense and keeps the fan base reeled in.

Han Solo’s release date is in May.

Fair enough. Is that the original date or has it been pushed back yet post Ron Howard?

It depends if there’s an audience for it any more, people just want to shoot lasers and get points. Throw in a season pass, burn it out after a year and throw out a sequel. Can you imagine anyone bringing back the same controls for s-foils, firing configuration, missiles, shield power vs speed etc etc? Do flight sticks even exist today? It’s been a while I admit.

The teaser will probably come out after TLJ home release is available, to maximise the advertising space for each product.

Those look exactly like the Harmy discs some people were trying to sell a few months back. Is it real or is someone over at that site just screwing around?

Is <em>Star Wars</em> Your Favorite Movie?

ROTS has one and only one good sequence: the one where everyone shuts up and all you hear is the music as Anakin and Padme get all weepy. That’s it. That’s all. The rest of ROTS takes the franchise out back, puts a bullet in its head, and leaves it for dead.

Even this part is a dud because they’re thinking back to the romance they had in AOTC…

Look, if you enjoy the prequels on some level, fine, but putting them on the same level as the OT (and calling ROTS a masterpiece, for heaven’s sake) is just flat-out crazy.

I didn’t mean that it’s an objectively phenomenal film, just that it is to me.

In what way though? It’s just as bad, if not worse than the other two in several places.

I had ROTJ for Gameboy too. It was tough if I recall, but I have a feeling I finished it back in the day, if not a distinct memory of what the ending was…

Oh sure. Die Another Day is a pretty apt comparison - lazy producers, complacent film makers, reliance on brand awareness instead of creativity. It’s embarrassing and boring but whatever. But as the thread title suggests - is it that bad? Yeah, it’s that bad.

It could go either way. Avatar fans are all gonna be 10 years older and have probably moved on, 3D hype is long dead… but at the same time it will feel like something new to some audiences by the time all the other blockbuster franchises outstay their welcome.

But on topic the “it’s definitely going to be 2020” feels like wishful thinking at this stage.

Unless they rewrite the entire script and then dub every actor to match it I don’t see how a few cuts here and there would really help. The fundamentals are broken, so just leaving a few more scenes on the cutting room floor isn’t exactly going to make them work.
