Disney to buy 20th (21st) Century Fox? (Disney has now bought them - 14 Dec '17)

Please! Expect complete silence regarding the originals for the foreseeable future. It’s the only way to remain sane. I allowed myself to get my hope up for the 40th at Celebration for no reason at all. As soon as George walked out I knew it wasn’t going to happen.

I’m with you on this. Not getting my hopes up on an OT release all over again. The 40th was the time to do it, or to at least acknowledge it as a thing.

The surprise John Williams concert was nice though.

Star Wars Insider celebrates the 40th anniversary with...

Want to see the very definition of a “screw you” to fans?

Here’s the ad in the back of the newest edition of the Star Wars Insider. It’s promoting the next issue that hits newsstands on May 23rd, 2 days before the official 40th Anniversary.

And what is the main thing they’re talking about? The 1997 special edition re-release.

They might as well put a big middle finger on the cover.

Must be a typo. Fixed:

“Insider reveals how the Star Wars saga makes a triumphant return to the big screen in 2017!”

And has anyone here got the mad skills to repurpose the Rogue One trailer so that it depicts a rag-tag team of rebels trying to steal the Original Theatrical cut from the Evil Empire? That might go viral! 😄

Great idea Darth Cracker.

At this point, haven’t we been patient enough? It’s the freaking 40th anniversary. If they can’t make a simple direct statement on the matter…

This is what drives me nuts, they (@StarWars @Disney) gush about how much they love the SW fans onstage at Celebration, but they don’t respond to tweets about the OT, or even acknowledge it.

Today, fans on twitter are sharing the '77 poster alongside TLJ one & saying what a cool reference it is - apparently without even being aware that '77 movie no longer exists (officially).

This is the weirdest situation regarding a movie release in cinema history but there’s nothing to see here so move along - that’s what LF & Disney’s silence on the matter says to the fans they purport to love & adore so much, when they just want us to get back in the kitchen to make them a fricking sandwich.

I don’t think we’ll hear anything about the OOT at Celebration. We can only hope that they will release it this year low key

I don’t think we’ll hear anything either. And I don’t think we have a hope that they will release it, not this year, not 2020, not ever 😦 Thousands of fans going batshit mental over the 40th anniversary of a movie no-one is allowed to see anymore is kinda sickening. Lucasfilm denegrates its own legacy every year this drags on, while all and sundry kiss the ass of the stubborn old bastard who keeps a tight grip on the franchise even after selling it off for billion$.

Here’s Tom with the weather… 😉
