And now its come out that Alden Ehrenreich had raised concerns about Lord and Miller during filming describing the Han Solo characterization as something akin to Ace Ventura.

If this is true, then I’m 200% on board with them getting sacked. I’m not a huge Ron Howard fan, but he’s absolutely competent. If he just assembles the movie according to Kasdan and Son’s script, I feel a lot better about that than the bro-down that it sounds like Lord and Miller were drifting towards, even if it isn’t the most inspired thing I’ve ever seen.

I had to turn off The Lego Movie after six or seven minutes because it was giving me a headache. That’s the sum of my experience with Lord and Miller.

I’m not sure if that was the reaction here specifically because I haven’t been in the spoiler thread in a while myself, but the rest of the Internet lost its collective shit.

Between this and half of Rogue One being reshot, it seems we won’t ever be getting a new Star Wars film with the director’s vision left entact again.

I love how a week or two ago everyone was freaking out about LFL not having a plan for the ST after that article about Rian Johnson’s near complete creative control on TLJ, and now it’s this.

What is your Star Wars?
Time

I think it would have to be the Faces and 97 SE tapes, the Power of the Force action figures, the Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight and Rogue Squadron video games, the Decipher Star Wars CCG cards, and whatever Bantam EU books I could snag at the grocery store. A very 90s Star Wars.

Star Wars Episode IX to be directed by Colin Trevorrow
Time

Safety Not Guaranteed was one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen, so I’ve been on edge about this from day one. That review excerpt that Alderaan posted for Book of Henry honestly made me morbidly curious, though.

Episode VIII Discussion *SPOILER THREAD*

Watching Alderaan defend ROTJ is making me feel like Hammond in the dinner scene.


I don’t believe it! You’re meant to come down here and defend me against these characters, and the only one I’ve got on my side is the blood-sucking lawyer!

I feel like I need to see the gorilla walker in motion before I can pass judgement either way. I’m having a hard time figuring out how it’ll move based on the still. Do the front legs bend backward?

When Did The Star Wars Prequels Become Cool?
Time

I’ve softened on the prequels ever since the new movies started coming out. When it looked like the series was over forever it seemed like a bigger deal, but now that Star Wars movies are going to continue indefinitely, I’m not bothered by three of them being pretty bad, in much the same way that I don’t get angry about a bad James Bond or Star Trek movie.

Aren’t there rumors that they’re working on a practical Jabba anyway? I’m expecting something like Unkar Plutt in TFA, with a practical body and CGI face.

I think that’s different. Anakin only came from Tatooine because George wanted to go there, it was never part of the character before TPM. Arbitrarily deciding Anakin is from Tatooine just so you can include it in the film =/= checking in on Jabba on the planet where we already know he is.

General Star Wars Random Thoughts Thread

I really hope Williams finishes the ST, but beyond that I’d be perfectly happy to see Giacchino become a series regular. I also still want to hear Alexandre Desplat’s take.

Tatooine would make a lot of sense if Jabba is involved. I’d be fine with seeing it again in this context. I think there’s a difference between going there in a spinoff because it’s established that one of the characters lives there and going out of your way to invent contrived reasons to keep returning in every single film like it was in the PT.

Star Wars &quot;Official&quot; Canon Content Thread
Time

Yeah, Thrawn was cool, but it’s pretty low-key compared to the original books. I wasn’t wild about Dark Tide because I really hate Corran Horn, but it was worthwhile just to get to Luceno’s Han-centric duology immediately after.

If I was as physically gifted as LeBron James, you bet your ass I wouldn’t hone my skills, because I have no interest whatsoever in basketball.

What do you HATE about the EU?
Time

I was just at the book store and I noticed that the current paperback anthology of the OT novelizations has the slightly taller dimensions of the canon Disney novels rather than the traditional mass market paperback size that all the Legends material is. Maybe they did quietly recanonize them after all.

Awesome Star Wars art (pic heavy!!)
Time

I was bored to tears when I started Darth Plagueis a while back. Darth Bane too. I’m interested in the lore, but I think I need to accept the fact that the whole grimdark ancient Sith thing is never going to do it for me and I ought to just skim wookieepedia for the broad strokes.
