The Force Awakens: Official Review Thread - ** SPOILERS **
Time

Rey knows all about Han Solo and the Rebellion, but doesn’t know about “Jedi Mind Tricks”? I believe the in-universe is that everyone has seen or heard the equivalent of the OT. Sure, they may be rumors or just fantasy, but its “true, all of it”. Wouldn’t you try to use the mind trick if you found out that Star Wars was real? I still wave my hand whenever I pass through an automatic door.

So as I understand it, Ady’s revisited editions are basically his idea of what the SEs should have been (& I’m very inclined to agree on pretty much all the changes especially after watching ANH:R) and therefore there wouldn’t be any drastic changes to the story such as killing of Lando. I believe he is simply having everyone on as indicated by a quote of Ady from the “Save Lando” thread posted on the previous page here.

To be fair, I coined the phrase “What The Special Editions Should Have Been”, these are basically Ady’s personal edits that he happens to share with the rest of the world. I did seriously push for killing Lando, but Ady wouldn’t go for it because he personally didn’t like it, not because of some responsibility to continuity.

That being said, I am glad to have it confirmed that Lando won’t be making a sudden departure in ROTJ:R. As much as I respect that it’s Ady’s edit, that would be one change to far for me. As long as the end celebration music is replaced with the original music (or at least the current SE music replaced with something more respectful to the OT) and Vader / Ananikan’s force ghost restored to the original actor instead of Hayden that GL shoehorned in there to try and forcibly tie the PT into the OT, I’ll be very happy. One of my most hated changes by GL was when he changed that and changed the music with the extended ending celebration.

Personally, I like “Victory Celebration”. Sure I miss “Yub Nub”, but its a good ending to Return of the Jedi, maybe to the trilogy, but certainly not to the whole saga. Personally.

But, this isn’t the thread for any of this anyway.

I’ve been sorting my comics alphabetically by title for a while, but I’m considering rearranging all the Superman books to chronological reading order.

Like, release order? That would make sense. I imagine internal chronology would be impossible to do.

“Save Lando” is the gift that keeps on giving, going on 8 years now.

I also like that people are STILL not understanding that Ady is making these edits to make the six movies tie better together, and insist on bringing up the EU & possible future movies, as if he could predict what’s going to happen in movies that are going to come out every year until our grandchildren are worried about what order to show the movies to their children.

Please don’t judge me when I say that I hope the Revisited versions of the OT won’t contradict the official versions of the PT. Then again, since the OT is so sacred to many, most of the changes made to them are aesthetic, and not story-related.

Some of Adywan’s changes to RotJ may depend on what he can change in the PT. I’m still sure they’ll fit better than how much the PT already contradicts the OT.

Can you make a list on everything that’s been announced about ROTJ:R?

Pardon me for seeming naive, but how does the PT contradict the OT?

Leia remembering her mother for one.

It’s “psychometry.”

It’s called “being so engrossed in the story you want to tell now that you ignore facts presented in stories you wrote 20 years before”. And this isn’t the thread for this.

Are blu-Ray players capable of turning on the TV on their own? The TV was not on when I went to eject the disc, but when turning on the Player, the TV turned on, and nobody else in the house had the remote.

yes, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consumer_Electronics_Control

samsung calls it anynet+ i think, and there other other brandings for it.

JEDIT: i hate the tech myself, and turn it off when possible.

I didn’t know it was part of the HDMI too. It was my first thought, but I knew that some TV’s had a version of this.

Your TV can be configured to turn on or switch to the active input. So yes.
