Anyone that would subject a new viewer to The Phantom Menace as their first Star Wars experience should be locked up.

RO is now #7 all time Domestic and #28 Domestic + International.

Adjusted for Inflation it is #65 Domestic.

TFA is #11 on the adjusted chart, which is pretty amazing for a 2015 movie.

All eight live action SW films are in the top 100 adjusted. No other franchise has that many.

“I question the wisdom of this move. At this price, what’s left to drain from this franchise? I don’t think Star Wars is another Bond-like franchise. It’s been eclipsed by movies like Avatar. I’m not convinced (Star Wars) has the cultural force it once did.”

Yeah everyone already knows that. Are you guys trying to suggest that Fox is the reason the OOT hasn’t been released? Because boy, that’s a good one…

Think about this from a business perspective. We’ve received multiple reports that they’ve restored the OUT but there’s been no sign of a release. Why is that? Here are the two options:

  • Release them now and let 20th Century profit off the work you invested into restoring them
  • Wait until you’ve fully secured the rights for two-thirds of the trilogy and only split the profits for one film

Which sounds like the smarter business decision?

To put things in perspective, it was 6 years between the time George released the GOUT and the time he sold all rights to Disney. It has now been 5 years since Disney took over, and still no OOT.

Considering their films are barely better than the prequels, which is not saying much, this lack of action should be considered an outrage.

Here’s some perspective:

Fox owns distribution rights to the original Star Wars, No. 4 in the series, in perpetuity in all media worldwide. And as for the five subsequent movies, Fox has theatrical, nontheatrical and home video rights worldwide through May 2020.

While the rights on those five films eventually will revert to Disney, that “in perpetuity” pact for the first film appears to be an obstacle to Disney releasing a complete set – unless a deal can be made.

I think they might have actually added an impact noise for the mono mix. At least that’s what it sounds like. Right as he hits his head you hear a *ktch* like noise.

Uh oh…

BBC Newsnight said:

And if what might be regarded as unseemly haste, Disney is negotiating with the actor’s estate over her continued appearance in the franchise.

They cite no source for the claim but it’s a little worrying.

WOODY HARRELSON SIGNS ON FOR YOUNG HAN SOLO FILM

Veteran film and television actor Woody Harrelson is stepping aboard the upcoming Han Solo movie set to arrive in theaters next year.

Harrelson, known for wide-ranging roles in film and TV such as The Hunger Games, No County For Old Men, True Detective, Cheers, and Zombieland, will join actors Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo), Donald Glover (Lando Calrissian), and Emilia Clarke in the adventure. This Star Wars Story is the second in a series of films that live outside the Skywalker family saga, and is set during the early scoundrel days of the iconic characters, prior to A New Hope.

“We couldn’t be more excited to work with an artist with as much depth and range as Woody,” said the film’s directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. “His ability to find both humor and pathos, often in the same role, is truly unique. He is also very good at ping pong.”

The as-yet-untitled movie, which is being produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur, and Simon Emanuel, is scheduled for release in 2018.
