love these vhs cover creations , I took my dvd copy of force awakens and played it through my old apex dvd player hooked up to an old portable tv/vcr combo and made a vhs copy of it . Might do the same for Rogue one and display with all my other vhs star wars movies.

Why not just put a random VHS in the box? (you don’t actually intend to watch it on tape, do you?)
I totally watched it on tape !

Tribute to the original Marvel Star Wars comic series
Time

@ Shopping Maul …thank you . I thought the post Empire issues were fantastic and agree the writing was top notch , the writers guessed a lot of plot points before ROTJ came out like the Tarkin superweapon which was meant to be a second Death Star , a forest planet with speeder bike like vehicles , small furry bipedal aliens etc . Glad you enjoyed the artwork .

The Prequel Trilogy showdown
Time

I enjoyed the fan edit of episode 3 called Dark Force Rising by Kerr . It made for a much tighter story and eliminated the most cringe worthy parts . But that’s just like , my opinion man .

Tribute to the original Marvel Star Wars comic series
Time

I realized I posted this link to the wrong thread yesterday , pretty presumptuous of me to call my own work awesome , I will let others decide it’s merits . Anyway ,As my Avatar shows , I am a huge fan of the original Marvel Star Wars comic series which ran from the late 70’s to the mid 80’s. I have been creating digital fan art tribute covers for them in my spare time . I could not figure out how to upload images to these threads so I am posting a link to an online gallery of them Which I just created …hope you enjoy and feedback is welcome . Thank You…https://screamsinthevoid.deviantart.com/

General Star Wars Random Thoughts Thread
Time

sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere , but I am watching the Gout of Empire Strikes back with the Spanish language track enabled and am wondering how they chose the voice over actors , like , what is the process for casting the characters , a certain nobility for obi-wan ? Does Yoda speak in backward syntax ? I do not speak Spanish and am curious . I wonder how much I can learn to speak it through watching the star wars movies as I have most of them memorized. Thoughts ?

Star Wars Shadows of the Empire soundtrack
Time

fmalover said:

I found the complete soundtrack available on Youtube and gave it a listen. Amazing score by Joel McNeely IMO, though I read McNeely himself wasn’t happy with the end product and that it’s one of his least favourite works. Myself I disagree, I think it’s a pretty strong score and it’s a real shame the music is now part of the Legends continuity, and I would love McNeely to do more SW music.

Any other fans here?

I own this score on CD ! I think it’s great and they should have had Mcneely score Rogue one . To me he sounds the most like John Williams since …John Williams !

Random Thoughts

The English language really makes no sense if you look at it closely , for instance the word " full " , it is spelled with two L’s . Now take the word " beautiful " , it is only spelled with one L, and yet it is FULL of beauty . It is not a " Millennial " thing . Oh, and I am 45 years old . GET OFF MY LAWN !!!

Deleted Scenes from Films that ended up in Other Films or TV shows Archive List
Time

Ronster said:

Quick Update.

The last scene of King Conan with Narration from Conan the Destroyer was meant to be the first scene in John Milius Conan the Barbarian.

Presumeably this is due to the Narration of Arnold Schwarzenegger being replaced with Mako and deciding the oriental accent voice over narration did not match the image. Hence the Black Screen with Narration.

The shot times out exactly to the introduction and the introduction is a Dolly in the scene present in Conan the Barbarian of King Conan a Dolly out.

So a Bookend to the Film one in which he has his Sword another for which the sword was absent.

Destroyer = Introduction

Awesome , I can’t believe I never caught that ! thank you for sharing .

The Worst Star Wars Characters

I suspect his face was inspired by the Blobfish. Don’t google it unless you want it swimming in your dreams tonight. ;
great observation ! Unkar Plutt was indeed inspired by the blobfish .There was a small hard back book put out through readers digest called Rey’s survival guide in which she frequently refers to him as the blobfish .It is actually a pretty good read and gives a lot of insight into Rey’s daily life on Jakku .It contains backstory that I feel would have made the novelization of TFA a lot better , but I suspect Alan Dean Foster had a mandate to hold back so Disney could do a double dip into the fans pocket books . I enjoyed the survival guide more than the TFA novel and I loved Foster’s adaptation of the original Star Wars movie that he ghost wrote using the name George Lucas . That one had loads of characterization and world building.

Should Vader and The Emperor even know who Yoda is?
Time

TV’s Frink said:

Ok, I’m rather confused.

“‘This Yoda,’ the Emperor mused. ‘Lives he still?’”

What is this from, and what is the context?

It is from the 1983 novelization of Return Of The Jedi by James Kahn . “lives he still ?” sounds like Yoda speech , but I think the Emperor was just mocking Luke. I also got the impression that Yoda and the Emperor had never met from reading the book .
