4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

If we’re all still around in 2021, I know where we can throw the OOT release party…

As long as we don’t invite anyone from Pod Six. 😉

It’s not like Lucasfilm hasn’t altered ROTJ multiple times after the director passed away… Am I the only one who sees the hypocrisy there?

Also - why would they do any release prior to 2020? Spending a bunch of money on an OT restoration and having to split the money from TESB and ROTJ with Fox is just stupid. I still don’t know why anyone is expecting anything to happen prior to the rights reverting

Then they should make a clear concise statement on the matter, so people aren’t left hanging and speculating wildly. The 40th would be a good time to do so.
Some of us have been on the S.S. Bantha Poodoo from Lucasfilm too long, and the 40th is a good time to jump ship, without some shred of hope. If they don’t want our money, they should say so.

Also, does it matter if Kathleen believes in George’s vision when the house of mouse can override that and be like “nope, we like money, put out the OOT, we worked out a deal with FOX”

They let Disney have their way with EP7 so…

This. George was his own boss. If he wanted to make a sw film made of nothing but of cgi potatoes, he could. Kathleen Kennedy is not her own boss. She is a figurehead/manager who answers to stock holders and a corporate board (see: syndicate).

When Disney bought Lucasfilm, they bought EVERYTHING. There’s no contract that says they can’t release the out. For $4 billion, they don’t owe George anything. Kk might have professional and personal respect for George, but also has superiors to appease. Superiors who micromanage every decision to the tiniest detail in order maximize short and long term profits.

Disney can and will release the out, but it will be solely when they feel it will get the biggest bang; not when the fans want it, not to comemmerate some date,etc.

Because Disney doesn’t care about some date. 😉

Yeah this complaint is stupid. BB is right there, chirping, as r2 wakes up. Sounds reasonable

That’s not what I mean. So let’s ignore the embarrassing scene where R2 is revealed like a 1:1 collector’s item for us to get all nostalgic at. He comes online as he’s like “oh hey I’m alive, you didn’t take this map already?” before calling 3PO a gold plated fuckwit or whatever they bleeped since he was the one saying how unlikely it was that R2 had the damn thing. Ignoring this, why did he wake up at that exact moment just in time for the battle victory? What if it took like another year or more? Or never? It’s all backwards, as if they realised that if BB8 had the whole map the movie wouldn’t need a diversion into the Death Star, and so they made up the missing fragment and sleepy R2 stuff.

As Star Wars is fiction, it’s all made up. 😉

And we’re talking about the droid who helped win the war against the Empire. Of course he’s a collector’s item. Can you imagine what he would fetch on the intergalactic version of Ebay?

Try refreshing the page, or clearing your broswer cache. I can see your Lobot just fine. 😃

The original Battlestar Galactica is coming to METV on Super Sci-Fi Saturday Nights!
I am pleased!

Why would you want to watch them chopped up to squeeze in more commercials?

I just realized we’ll likely see the Skywalker lineage end with Luke and Leia. I doubt that Rey will be a Skywalker, and I really don’t think Kylo will survive the trilogy.

Uh, potential spoiler alert?

Cameron is going to be too busy making Avatar sequels for the next decade, whether anyone wants them or not.
Wait, what does this have to do with Rogue One? 😉

It was a woman wearing the makeup, with chimpanzee eyes added optically.

Why did they have to make the poor ape wear overalls and a collared shirt when they just wanted the eyes???

Most trained chimps seem to wear clothes, or at least diapers. And humans are uncomfortable around simian nudity anyway. Cheeta in the old Tarzan movies wore furry underwear to appease the censors. 😉

What does Puggo have to do with this? The raw files were made available to the public by Antcufaalb and Poita. If anybody wants recognition or feels that I forgot to mention them by all means let me know and I’ll give it.

My bad. I was thinking of Puggo’s Super 8 project.

Did you ask Puggo about doing this first? If only out of common courtesy…

Maybe people shouldn’t put so much stock into IMDB ratings and watch a movie for themselves?
