Lucas had been trying to get this made since the 80’s. An HBO movie on the same subject came out in 1995. Between this and Radioland Murders, any long gestating project of George’s seems headed for trouble.

Never thought Jango was bad, just a little bland, and Lucas killed him off way too fast as usual. If he had been a 20 year old Boba, a good, if not yet polished Bounty Hunter, that would have been more interesting.

Yes, but being mostly cybernetic means not catching your death of cold. 😉

And most people don’t have clawed feet to walk along on a spaceship hull either.

When the Star Wars land finally opens at Disneyland, I hope they do cool stuff like Johnny Depp in costume lurking on the Pirates Of The Caribbean ride.

Wait did he actually do that or are you just referring to the very eerily lifelike animatronic of him they added to the ride?

He actually did it yesterday. It was all over twitter.

BTW, kelly, if the eringreen2017 and bennyjames2017 accounts are also you, forum members are not allowed to have multiple accounts. Pick the one you want to keep.

Huh? Who are they?

Two accounts that match your IP address, and both joined on the 15th. Do you have any family members browsing the site?

Since they are first name last name I doubt it. Probably the same guy who’s obsessed with Leia’s bikini who came on multiple forums including this to show images of Leia’s boobs that he had photoshopped.

Where?

Yes and that’s definitely on the same level as the slaughter of innocent people.

I was only referring specifically to ISIS’s destruction of cultural artifacts, and nothing else.

ISIS is definitely worse than Lucasfilm by light-years, obviously, but both are guilty of cultural cleansing.

That’s a s****y comparison to make and you know it. Knock it off.

I have never seen more majestic than a flock of users with no profile pictures.

I’m sort of overweight. I never put up a profile picture. I don’t like the way I look. I’m a huge Star Wars fan though. New to this site. 😀 I’m sure I’ll have my picture up eventually.

You can always go with a picture of a Star Wars character or just about anything else. We’re not checking Imperial identification cards around here. 😉

He’s a Kaleesh that was transformed into a cyborg. Pretty much the only parts that remain of his original body are his eyes, brain, and the rest of his organs.

OK. Basically another Vader with more stuff damaged/replaced. Since the lung obviously doesn’t work properly either, I would have replaced that as well.

If the lung itself is the force bearer that might be the reason to keep it.

Silly, but… well.

He’s not force sensitive, so that’s a good point. It’s clear the lung wasn’t working correctly, so they should’ve replaced it.

Why even keep the lungs if he can clearly survive in space without them?

Maybe he held his breath.

The brain still needs oxygen. He can clearly function in a vacuum for a brief period.

She is Rey and she is a girl and is awesome. Deal with it.

Look, criticizing the character is perfectly fine! Just because she’s a woman shouldn’t put her above reproach. I don’t recall any of these criticisms being made against Leia, and she wasn’t exactly your everyday damsel in distress.

Leia was a superb heroine, plucky, courageous, charismatic and sharp-witted, and she averted many negative females-in-fantasy tropes, but the Imagineers at Disney realize that even though Leia should have been a ready-made role model, girls just really didn’t give a shit.
Cuz know what? Girls don’t give a shit about Star Wars.
So the Imaginariat went to the lab and created a purified formula of excess overpowered-ness, in hopes that if she’s outright omnipotent, girls will finally become interested in a role model in the Star Wars universe.
I guess we’ll see if that agenda worked, but it sure resulted in a forgettable, entirely unremarkable movie.

I doubt Kenner ever lost money cranking out Leia figures, and there were plenty of Leia cosplayers at the 10th Anniversary Con. I know because I was there.
