Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys’:-

https://www.facebook.com/thetoyboxcollectibles/videos/plastic-galaxy-a-story-of-star-wars/510347609704057

^ at The Toy Box facebook page. (a 2014 release. 70 mins)
 

About:-

"When Star Wars landed in the theaters, it introduced audiences to a galaxy filled with heroes and villains, robots and space ships, and a dizzying variety of alien life. But when the lights came up, they all disappeared… Unless you had all the toys. In which case, the adventure never had to end.

In backyards, playgrounds, basements, and bedrooms, Star Wars toys helped kids re-enact scenes from their favorite movies, and create entirely new dangers for Luke Skywalker and his friends to face. They were lusted after on holidays and birthdays, swapped with great cunning out on the school yard, and carefully collected like fine treasures. Like no toys before them, the action figures, space ships, play sets, and props were a phenomenon that swept the nation with as much force as the film that inspired them.

Along the way they transformed both the toy and movie industries, earned those behind them vast amounts of wealth, and ultimately created a hobby that, 30 years later, still holds sway over not only the people who grew up with the toys, but also an entirely new generation of fans.

Plastic Galaxy is a documentary that explores the groundbreaking and breathtaking world of Star Wars toys. Through interviews with former Kenner employees, experts, authors, and collectors, it looks at the toys’ history, their influence, and the fond and fervent feelings they elicit today."

So this happened in what, 2016. Its still not available at any source that the common non 12yo person has time to try to access?! I haven’t been on myspleen since…2007? 08? When all of these pussy repositories went private in the late oughts what did it accomplish? Nothing but closing off access because I never ran into too many normies there to begin with. If THEY want them shut down they will be shut down. You don’t think that all of the posts across the internet saying what copyrighted property was available where is enough to get these things destroyed? I don’t belong to any private trackers so how do I even attempt to sign up to blutopia etc. This is all very shortsighted. Frankly these things should be spread across the web so they have a better chance of surviving the inevitable destruction of these dinosaur sites. There are multiple scans of Song of the South on internet archive for crying out loud. Man up zoomer-boomer internet, the only ppl that fall into these cliques on the internet are 12/55yos. Even this site does the thing where “oh, we don’t post things that these companies can use to take us down” but…you allow ppl to collect money to scan films to distribute them? You know ppl have been caught up in a lot of legal problems for less than that right? Why can’t the scan just have a nice searchable name and file size attached to it and ppl can find them where they may. Its 4 years later and this shit is still unfindable. Very sad, boomers.

Even for a 12 year old that is a pretty entitled post.

I hope your teens sees a little more patience and understanding.

'George Lucas: Creating an Empire:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GXPixi6fq0 - at the cjsanche1 youtube channel. (a 2002 release. 91 mins.)
 

About:-

"George Lucas: Creating An Empire is an amazing life story of one of the most imaginative and prolific creators of film. When he was young, George didn’t take school - or anything else - seriously. But when he enrolled in film school, it was clear he’d found his calling.

His first successful film was American Graffiti, but Lucas is best known as the man behind the Star Wars trilogy, three of the most popular movies of all time.

He developed new technology and filmmaking techniques that revolutionized Hollywood, and the phenomenon continues with three much-anticipated new movies, including Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.

Lucas has gone on to build a film empire that includes Industrial Light and Magic, the top special-effects company in the world. His epic story is told by much of the cast that has been a part of his life, including Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, Harrison Ford, Ron Howard, Carrie Fisher, Liam Neeson, Haskell Wexler, Peter Travers, James Cameron, his sister Kate Nygaard, his daughters Amanda and Katie, George himself, and many other friends and associates."

^ Again, not really a favourite, though interesting to see Star Wars fans (Original Trilogy fans in the main) eagerly await the release the first film in the Prequel Trilogy. It seems such a long time ago…

Reasoning Behind Changes from Release to Release
Time

Biggs Audio Dynamite said:

Still no reasons from George, Lucasfilm, ILM, or Disney yet?

I suppose the ‘it was always meant to be this way’ or ‘this is the real finished version - not that one which has stood for 20 years’ only works so many times? 😉

There have been no official explanations of any changes since the old “What Has Changed” articles in 2006.

Hell, they made #maclunkey show a Greedo emoji, but no one has explained what it even means.

Sorry - I should have been clearer.

‘Changelists’ would be superb! 😃

Though I meant interviews with George or people at ILM - in articles or promos in magazines or publications (or even on the various Star Wars social media platforms) - featuring more claims of his ‘visions’ and sometimes dubious ‘explanations’ / ‘reasons’ (eg, ‘we didn’t have that particular shot’).

Maybe he has now made that many now that even he has forgotten some of them 😉

Hey guys, been lurking this forum for a while and just decided to take a crack at my own covers. Pretty simple design, I’m no graphic artist. Anyway I’ve got them all in a Google Drive here:

Thoese look very cool! I really like the large images used for both back and front sides of the covers.

Star Wars Prequel Trilogy CGI Free
Time

Can I get a link to your RoboCop remake, please Mocata? It sounds fun 😃

 

There are many awesome animators around, it would be cool to see some of their interpretations of a Prequel Trilogy more in keeping with the Original Trilogy style (with maybe a few fixes / tweaks along the way?)

Sort of a ‘Daz Tibbles meets Galaxy of Adventures’ style?

Or the guy who did that aewsome ‘TIE Fighter’ animation youtube vid - OtaKing770?

The Mandalorian - Star Wars Live action TV series : <strong>NO SPOILERS</strong>

No, The Mandalorian isn’t a Boba Fett show. GOOD!’ - by HelloGreedo

HG made a couple of good points here; for many of the casual Star Wars fans (or sci-fi fan) they’ll probably tune in expecting the series to be about Bobba or the Fetts. It’ll be interesting to see how they take to new characters in a familiar timeline and setting…
