Lucas should have given Obi-wan a robot leg in the ANH Special Edition in 1997 so that people would have speculated endlessly over the next 8 years about when during the prequels he lost it, then never have him sustain this injury, making it clear that it just happened sometime later and had no bearing on the plot.

And he could have made it C-3PO’s missing gold right leg.

Well see now that’s almost interesting, so it would have never happened.

What, you don’t think this added interest and intrigue to Star Wars?

Your DVD Collection

I need to find a good site to organize my DVD and Blu-ray collection.

But LD on the other hand…
I forgot to post a link in here so here goes:

I’ve documented my Laserdisc collection in video form on my regular channel…it’s really weird to think I’m now close to 1,000 titles! These are the additions for last month:

Blu-ray.com has a great library feature, including a phone app that scans barcodes.

Best viewing order to introduce Star Wars to children?
Time

Slart said:

You have to make your own decisions for your own kids, but here’s what I went with:
Star Wars
Empire
Jedi
Force Awakens
Last Jedi

We started before Force Awakens came out, so they got to see the sequels in the theater. I consider the current trilogy to be “their” trilogy, but they had to have a schooling in the classics first.

They know of the prequels, but I just said, “They’re not very good” and that was the end of it. The special editions have never been mentioned.

Parent of the year!

Re the September 2019 blu ray (with Digital Code) and dvd releases for the ten main Star Wars films to date - with matching artwork…

To absolutely no one’s surprise, the new releases are just repackages of the existing releases, albeit with new disc and cover art. Some day.

 

Also…

From the Star Wars Home Video Library #221: All 20 Sept. 2019 Reissues’ - youtube video by NathanPButler:-

NathanPButler’s youtube channel - https://www.youtube.com/user/ChronoRadio/videos - is well worth a watch for information on the various Star Wars releases down the years - including releases for non-film content such as Resistance, Rebels, Clone Wars and more - as well as a fair few rarities from around the world too…
 

How did they decide which lightsaber blades would extend beyond the borders, and which would be cut off? They’re not even consistent within posters, see AOTC!

“The Ride of a Lifetime" - book by Bob Iger. Lucas mention.

it’s ironic SW went back to film once digital reached filmic quality

Perhaps digital has matched film in terms of perceived resolution, but this is not the same as quality. Whether you’re referring to quality as merit or quality as characteristic, IMO, digital lags behind film in the former, and is completely different in the latter.

4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

SilverWook said:

Who the heck has the bandwith for 4K streams? I live out in the sticks and 1080 is a crapshoot on any given day. Disney barely seems to care about their back catalog on physical media beyond their animated classics and Marvel flicks these days.

Yet I still don’t have The Black Cauldron on Blu-Ray 😦

10,000 Leagues did just come out as a Club Exclusive, though. So that’s something.
