Bring Back... Star Wars (Channel Four Documentary) — Page 2

Seems that Daniels had that attitude with everyone...as Collins said, he's very much 'Anthony Daniels, actor...' Every movie has their ego; it's a shame Star Wars had theirs encased in gold!

anybody know what the font is that they used here:

'Bring Back Star Wars' font

 

I've posted this on the whatthefont forums, but i thought you guys might have a better idea.  Someone over at FE has capped this, and I'm putting together some cover art.

Really enjoyed watching this, especially when they went to Preston to find Kenny... I live in Preston and that's my local Morrisons!

 

I actually met Kenny once, bumped into him at the Post Office... really nice chap :)

Just like with Star Trek, people freak when they find out not everyone in the cast is buddy buddy, or anything like their onscreen persona.

It's a fun job, (sometimes) but it's still a job. And they probably sometimes get sick to death talking about films they worked on years or decades ago. When Mark Hamill stiffs some orphans, then I'll get upset. ;)

And for the record, Mark has been a voice actor long before Star Wars.

It does sound like Anthony Daniels needs to lose the restraining bolt though!

I feel so bad for Hamill but I've liked him way more than Ford. For example Ford's Performance as Idiana Jones < Mark's performance as the Joker

 

And I wanna slap Anthony Daniels across the face.

Inspired by the Godfather Part II and a revamp of Star Wars: Reborn

I watched a few minutes of it on Youtube last night.

Did we really need to see the host's nearly naked Jabba the Hutt impression? And his opinion that all Science Fiction films before Star Wars were "rubbish" is ignorant at best, insulting at worst. And really ironic he used a Buck Rogers clip to illustrate his point!

Finally had a chance to watch this last night. (By the time I got round to it, it had gone from 4oD, but I got Xvid from alt.binaries.tv. There's also a MEPG-2 version on alt.binaries.starwars.)

It was all good fun. Liked the "celebrity ambush" approach. My wife enjoyed it as well which is unusual because she doesn't normally like the same TV as me.

The worst part for me were the clips from Jedi with the CGI sarlaac - which contradicted JLC's "sand minge" description.

Who else busted out laughing at Danies whining about the famous golden rod card?

Did anyone make a DVD cover for this?

A Channel 4 spokesperson confirmed there are no plans for another 'Bring Back' episode but added they wouldn't completely rule out doing another of the "special event shows".

It should be pretty easy to find the Xvid on mainstream torrent sites, and if you're lucky there may still be seeders.

Search for Bring.Back.Star.Wars.WS.PDTV.XviD-NOsegmenT.

I knew about Mark not being in it because he wanted ludicrous amounts of cash for it, which saddened me greatly,

 

but I watched it none the less

 

did anyone else want to trick Anthony Daniel's into "re enacting" a scene from the movies, getting him in the costume & then & the last minute change it to a different genre & filming the end scene from terminator where the t101 gets crushed???

 

.....NO!! must just be me then ;-P

I know this is off topic, but...
