The Star Wars Show again hinted at something huge happening during the 40 Year Anniversary panel today…

Aye, they made a pretty big deal about it…

It feels like they’re hinting at a George Lucas appearance, though I doubt he wants anything to do with it now.

That would be awkward considering he called Disney white slavers.

He is kind of right, in a way 😦. They are running the franchise into the ground by just rehashing the good parts from the OT.

But if Lucas shows up at Celebration, chances of getting the OUT in our lifetimes are completely fucked.

To be fair, TFA is tied, maybe even better than Jedi, and light years ahead of the prequels.

“The sand-hating Sith Lord.”

It’s nice to see even they have a sense of humor about that line.

As for whatever surprises they have in store, “if you’re there you’re going to want to BE IN THE ROOM for this” doesn’t really scream “restored OOT” to me. That really seems to point much more in the direction of what others have been saying, namely a surprise appearance from Harrison Ford or GL himself.

Honestly, it wouldn’t matter if it’s not at the opening panel, I don’t even need an announcement that it’s happening this year. I just want someone at this convention to address the issue.

😃

I don’t think we’ll be getting any OOT announcements either mate (though hope to be wrong! 😃) - maybe some rarely/never-seen-before footage of Star Wars from the LucasFilm vaults that have been cleaned up a bit, or maybe some fun/illuminating behind the scenes footage etc?

Maybe announcing an Obi Wan film with Ewan?

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

I have a right to change my mind.

Just because Disney is endlessly recycling the same two movies over and over again does not mean TFA and RO are as bad, or even worse than the prequels ever were.

They’re absolutely right about the decline of cinema in this country.

What’s the point of even talking about celebration? We will still be in the same rut we were put in by Lucas in the 90s, and in the last five years of Disney’s regime they have not proved to be the saviors we all hoped. They should give us an official OOT release, they owe it to us after 25 years of naked contempt by Lucasfilm against the fanbase. But what are they going to do? Just distract us with hype for TLJ, which will obviously let us down (something no one in this community wants to hear) and be forgotten a year later.

Factory products never end up in art museums. That’s just a fact.

Indeed, I want the ignore feature back.

I want to have OOT on Blu-ray without having to resort to complicated software hacking, but everything has to be the worst possible scenario imaginable, doesn’t it?

Look at all the passion that went into making ESB; none of that is present in the new movies. It’s all decided in corporate boardrooms and focus groups. It’s all about making a passable product to keep the factory running indefinitely, not for audiences like the OT was, or for one’s ego like the prequels were.

Careful not to cut yourself on all that edge.
I don’t like TFA much either dude but chill, they’re movies.

I was still hoping that they were planning on announcing an OOT re-release at Celebration, but after yesterday’s episode of the Star Wars Show, I’m not so sure anymore. It sounds like they’re teasing a surprise appearance (George Lucas?).
That being said, I talked to Jason Ward on Twitter a while ago and he still thinks that something OOT related is going on at Lucasfilm. So maybe there’s a chance.

Actually Disneys worst exploitation of the Star Wars license aren’t TFA or R1 but more so a scene within the George Clooney snoozefest Tomorrowland

Just take look at the stuff in the backround (watch the whole scene)…

There’s always Comic-Con.

Honestly, it wouldn’t surprise me if they announced it out of the blue some time in May just like the GOUT (maybe on May 25th?) and then waited until Comic-Con to unveil a trailer.

Celebration will be about remembering Carrie and hyping up Episode VIII and the Han Solo movie. It actually makes sense that they wouldn’t want to make a huge announcement about the OOT in the midst of all that.

Why, exactly? Are they afraid OOT would make everyone forget about the new movies? “Ehh, we got the original movies now, we don’t care about your sequel movies and EU movies anymore, or anything else you do.”

I had an actual dream last night that the ignore feature was all of a sudden back, and frevious was already ignored for me.

A preinstalled user list? Neat! Or not neat!

Well, to quote that guy from Wired magazine in September of '06 when the GOUT was released:

“They’re not going to make the fans happy because the happy fan has everything he or she needs. They will kill the goose that laid the golden egg, they will cook it, and they will sell the bones on ebay.”

He also sarcastically quipped right before saying the above quote that “someday they’ll release a version that will actually transform you into a nine-year-old again.”

I bring all this up because I can’t help but think this is exactly what Disney is doing with the new movies. They’re mining our nostalgia in order to sell tickets. A not insignificant number of fans would probably “have everything they need” if Disney would simply restore and release the original versions.

Maybe my logic is flawed here, but that’s just how I see it.

Just to add to the fun, I’m gonna speculate that it’s more likely that we’ll get an announcement of upcoming 3D releases of the SE versions of the Original Trilogy, rather than high quality versions of the actual original versions.

Alternatively, 'ol George appears to a mixture of rapturous applause and boos, and grudgingly announces a limited re-release on the big screen of the actual original versions…before walking off smugly with the knowledge that they STILL won’t be getting releaed on a high quality disc format despite that…

Did they even finish those 3D conversions?

In response to both of those points … TPM 3D was never released on 3D blu-ray (!)

Would that be a big surprise though? “We’re putting the PT and OT on formats not that many people own!” Doubt that’s the announcement
