MUST each Star Wars Ep. have to have...? — Page 2

I think I’ve said this before but I’d like the anthology films to start with the “A long time ago…” card and then proceed to do whatever they want.

I am kinda bummed that the new crawl of Hope, Jedi, Menace, Clones and Sith use one font, but Empire and Force Awakens use different font for the movie title in crawl. Its triggering muh OCDee

It threw me for a loop the first time I saw TFA, and I pessimisticly assumed it was a mistake. I’ve gotten used to seeing it that way, so can appreciate it as a deliberate choice. I like that each crawl, especially ESB, is slightly different. That’s why my PT edits’ crawls are each slightly different colors, angles, and levels of zoom.

PM me for links to my edits; apparently, some feel shy about this.

Son, I think we need to sit down and have a serious talk about the birds and the bees 😉

I’ll make a fan edit of Empire for you. You’re on your own for TFA though.

Isn’t it Jedi, Menace, Clones and Sith that use a “different” font, seeing that Empire was the first to include it?

FONTS ARE OVERRATED

System 4 lyfe

Still a better font than Calibri.

Minority is different from majority, even if the minority came first.

Since it doesn’t matter what came first, they could use the TFA font for 8 and 9, so it would be 5 vs. 4 and TFA’s font would then be the “right” one.

I’m still not sure why people noticed the title being “wrong” while not realizing that it’s the same as Empire. If you’re inspecting the crawls that closely, wouldn’t you have at least thought about the idea that one other film might also have used that font?

Personally, I prefer the Empire font. I don’t think I’d want Jedi to have it though; all the crawls being slightly different like that gives each film more character.

I don’t need them to be the same, but I think consistency is a good goal to have–and in choosing a font for TFA, Abrams definitely made the best choice for consistency. Assuming the prequels can all DIAF, and that Star Wars doesn’t have an episode title in the crawl to begin with, we’re really only talking about two precendent-setting films: one with Univers and one with News Gothic. There is no minority or majority, it’s a 50/50 split. So you’re either flipping a coin, or you’re weighing the merits of Empire versus Jedi. Given that, I’d have picked the Empire font too. And, having gone with that, it’s now the font used in two of the four Star Wars films, a clear plurality.

This makes perfect sense to me.

*A locked down closing shot (Tradition broken by 7. 8 and 9 better have rotating closing shots too otherwise I’ll be pretty cut)

No, actually this “tradition” was broken almost immediately, with Empire closing on the camera pulling back from the Rebel fleet. And while we’re at it, that movie is also the only one to have any significant dialogue in its final scene (Phantom Menace had the Gungan king shout “Peace!” but that’s it). So really, TFA’s ending is still a lot more “standard Star Wars” than Empire’s ending was.
