4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

Star Wars was known as Star Wars until at least the early 2000’s. Even the 1997 poster and advertising called it Star Wars: The Special Edition not A New Hope. I still call it Star Wars because I’m a pretentious jerk who likes be elitist.

Han Solo Movie ** <em>Spoilers</em> **
Time

It could get pushed back to Dec 2018 and move Mary Poppins Returns because no one gives a crap about that.

Kennedy has shown that she supports her directors when she likes their ideas. She’s the one who read the rough draft of Rogue One and asked why didn’t they all die. She’s the one who approved the last minute shooting of the Vader slaughter scene. She let JJ and Kasden dump most of Lucas’ draft. Rian Johnson seems happy with her. I trust Kennedy, she saw douche-bro Solo and was worried. Even the actor himself was worried and he was able to go to her and express his concerns and she didn’t brush him off.

Good on her.

Han Solo Movie ** <em>Spoilers</em> **
Time

Aren’t 21 and 22 Jump Street bro humor movies? Not something I’d equate with good Star Wars.

I’d side with Kasden over L+M anyday. He wrote 3 good Star Wars movies and Raiders. He understands the characters. If Lord and Miller were creating a douche-bro Han Solo then they needed to be fired. It should have happened earlier than now. I think Ron Howard will do a good job as long as he has a good script- which Kasden is likely to provide. If he can salvage some of the more expensive FX sequences the budget should be ok and as long as the film is good we are looking at another $1 billion box office success.

Time

I’m betting Ron Howard reshoots at least 60% of the movie. They move it back to Dec 2018 to keep Star Wars at the spot where its done really well the past two years.

The EW article says they clashed with Kasden as well. Kasden was responsible for some of the best parts of Star Wars and he knows Han Solo like only 70’s Lucas and Brian Daley did.

The pesky whipper-snappers who grew up on crap like Twilight and Harry Potter moved into other fandoms. Since they are easy to please the creators have little incentive to make good stuff when they can half ass any old garbage and make the bucks. They ruined Doctor Who and they tried to ruin Star Wars.

What the hell do you have against Harry Potter? Also, I have a Chrome plugin that replaces the word “millenial” with “pesky whipper-snappers”, so ignore the edit.

I like the books and I think that Rowling got so many kids excited about reading is a great thing. Its the movies I can’t stand and that Hot Topic had turned into nothing but Harry Potter central again. The last movie I saw, Goblet of Fire?, was only to on a date with a hot black dude.

Lucas probably has final edits on any pictures. They will be released when the fit his “original vision.” They always wanted Jabba the Hutt to be there.

Our open letter to Disney and Lucasfilm
Time

Mark has to walk a pretty fine line. If it were up to him, the OOT would be released because he wants as many people to be happy as possible. But he also has to not piss off people at Lucasfilm. Carrie gave zero fucks and got away with it.

Extreme Prequel Plot Holes And Inconsistencies
Time

It would have been so easy to have Owen in TPM as one of those kids or an older brother sort and have him want Anakin to stay and not go off because Owen never looked beyond owning a farm on Tatooine. Maybe Anakin gave Owen some of his winnings to make the down payment. The he could still be “Uncle” like I’m Uncle to my friends little one.

George can make all the changes he wants. Just label it as a separate director’s cut, not the only version that should exist.

George isn’t the director for 66% of the OOT! ;D

Then call it The George Lucas Edition. Has a nice ring to it.

The Special Edition moniker still works- they are short bus special.

We should fund research into parallel dimensions and find the one where Lucas didn’t go nuts, no Special Editions, the original cuts are on Blu-Ray, the Prequels were really good and Carrie is still here.

Burger Chef did Empire Strikes Back Posters as well. The company was sold in 1982, so no Jedi posters sadly.

How is something called Burger Chef some of the most interesting artwork

Because Star Wars was huge that summer and posters were an easy Fast Food promotion. A lot of the artwork was used for the glasses as well.

What was your impression of the prequels before they announced the PT?
Time

Vader and Obi-Wan fighting near a volcano was in an interview done between Star Wars and Empire. I remember after he fell in, the Emperor and troops would arrive and Obi-Wan would disappear into the forrest- never to be seen again. Luke was also supposed to be around 3 when it happened.

I’m a hundred pages in Aftermath: Life Debt and the author has turned Sinjir into a sassy, whiny, gay stereotype, which is pissing me off.

Gotta love a LGBT-friendly culture which still doesn’t know how to write realistic LGBT characters.

That stereotype is one for a reason. There are a ton of bitchy queens in the gay world, this is coming from a friend of Dorothy btw.

Somebody should do one of these posts on Reddit:

<----- Number of people that want the original theatrical version of star wars released on blu-ray

If that hit the front page of reddit it would mean quite a bit I think. The OT crowd would definitely have to get the ball rolling. I’m assuming everybody has reddit accounts?

What’s reddit?

4chan lite.
