An Index Thread for General Star Wars Discussion

 
An Index of just a few of the 5,000+ topics that have been posted in the ‘General Star Wars Discussion’ section of the OriginalTrilogy•com down the years…

The Index Categories are… (these will likely change and evolve over time)

• Forthcoming and future Star Wars releases
• ‘A Star Wars Story’ standalone films (previously known as ‘Anthology’ films)
• The Sequel Trilogy
• The Prequel Trilogy
• Other Star Wars releases (The Holiday Special, the Ewok films, animated TV series; Rebels, Clone Wars, Detours, Resistance etc)
• Soundtracks / Music / Audio threads
• Literature & EU Material (aka Canon & Legends, comics, e-books, scripts etc)
• Star Wars Games & Gaming
• Star Wars Documentaries
• Star Wars Theme Parks, Attractions, Cons & Events…
• Star Wars Fan Films
• Star Wars Homages (also tributes, parodies, blatant rip-offs, and curiosities)
• 40th Anniversary - 2017 (and some other anniversaries too)
• General Star Wars Discussions (mainly re: the Original Trilogy - films, scenes, tropes, meta, characters & actors, fandom, media etc)
• Archival / Historical Discussions (mainly re: OT home releases & the history + people BTS around the OT / Lucasfilm during that era)
• The numerous changes made to the Original Trilogy films over the years…
• FAQ & Info links

 

If you are new to the OriginalTrilogy•com then the following info may be of some assistance…

Firstly, the About and Help sections may be of interest to you regarding this site and what the OriginalTrilogy•com is about.

Secondly, the ’How do I do this?’ on the OriginalTrilogy.com - some info & answers to members’ queries thread should also hopefully be of some help as to many of the functions of the site, along with other related info as well.

Thirdly, the Announcements Section - including Site Rules & Guidelines, Fan Edit & Preservation Rules & FAQ, as well info for Signatures, Linking Policy for Downloads, and Plot Spoiler Policy (and much more) that may be of use too.

If you are having any issues with the site, have a question, an idea to improve the site, or would like to give some feedback - then these can be done in the Feedback Forum and General Assistance sections.

Finally, the self-explanatory An OriginalTrilogy.com timeline thread - a history of the site and why & how it came to be… contains a fair bit of additional info chronicling both the site & also numerous changes made to the Original Trilogy over time.

 

 

These two general Star Wars Discussion threads prove to be quite popular / useful (and so are ‘pinned’ up here at the top of this Index) - as well as a general ‘Star Wars News’ thread…

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Cheers mate - it’s not stickied yet - though hopefully will be soon. Edit: thanks Jay 😃

(It was your suggestion for an FAQ thread in here that inspired me - and my ‘copy & paste’ skills were getting a little rusty too 😉)

I’ve added your 6 links above to the Index - nice one - and many thanks!

 

If anyone has any suggestions for additions to it please post them in here - thank you.

I struggled to find a decent ‘Attack Of the Clones’ & ‘Revenge Of The Sith’ discussion thread in here - if anyone can point a couple out please do
 

Am struggling to find some threads with Kenny Baker and Anthony Daniels in…
 

200+ accessible pages of the ‘General Star Wars Discussion’ section - a lot to go through - and occasionally miss a good thread 😉 - so if anyone has any more suggestions, please keep them coming…

I don’t think we discussed the prequels all that much a decade ago, believe it or not. Even though we were around when ROTS was in theaters.

Aye, I managed to find a couple of threads on it - but didn’t really want to post the more… mainly negative threads… in general (though some good and valid points made in amongst them).

I think I found a little bit of balance there - though if anyone knows or finds a more positive thread on AOTC & ROTS please post them up 😃

There are at least a couple ROTJ threads that might be a good idea to index, as that film tends to spark a lot of discussion (and extraneous threads among noobs).

Added a couple more ROTJ (and also ESB) threads mate - if there any specific ROTJ threads you’d like to see added let me know 😃

All that effort, and your spam will only end up deleted. Man, do you suck.

I am quite new to this whole deal, yet VERY interested in seeing a bluray quality copy of the original trilogy. I have them on VHS, but no way of doing my own edits. So, I assume there is a general place to go find the Harmy edits? How do I go about finding it?
