He says he’s going to hire someone to do a Mark Hamill impersonation. It should be, uh…interesting.

The person in question has now refused to work with Ivan.
This is quite a regular occurrence with Ivan.
He doesn’t seem to get anything finished aside from small touches to single scenes and he dedicates more time to asking for help and funding than he does actually producing any finished work. He’s more interested in promoting himself as an editor than he is in editing.

Proof?

Also, he states at the beginning of the video that he doesn’t understand why he was banned from this site. LOL

*Her, and whether she follows a project through to the end is her business. Shaming is poor form.

HER? What an inconsequential piece of information that has blown my mind.

Snooker is trans; it’s only fair to provide ample warning so as to avoid accidental misgendering leading to unpleasant misunderstandings.

I miss that brief period of time pre-TESB when Force powers consisted solely of hightened senses/reflexes and subtle psychic abilities.

I generally agree with this sentiment; but Ben’s body disappearing after being struck down by Vader is far beyond either of these

To be frank, I don’t like that either.

The Last Son of Krypton (Season One)
Time

INT. SEDAN/BACK SEAT — TWILIGHT

As they drive to Helen’s, Clark peers out his window, apprehensive. For her part, Luma faces forward, expression neutral, though she keeps angling her eyes at Clark.

EXT. HELEN’S HOME/FRONT YARD — TWILIGHT

Jonathan stands at the door, wife, son, and Luma behind him. He isn’t any more eagre than Clark to be there.

MARTHA

Well?

Jonathan hesitant, Martha takes initiative, stepping past her husband to knock at the door. Several seconds pass with no response. Jonathan knocks. Still no one comes to the door.

MARTHA

What could be keeping her?

CLARK’S P.O.V. — ENTRANCE HALL

Clark activates his x-ray vision. His parents and front door disappear, allowing him to peer into the entrance hall. Helen stands on the other side of the door in an incredibly form-fitting bold red dress. Hands on hips, a wry half-smile on her cherry red lips, she takes a casual glance at her watch.

EXT. HELEN’S HOME/FRONT YARD — TWILIGHT

Jonathan knocks again. Again no response.

JONATHAN

(frowns) We’re leaving.

Just as Jonathan turns from the door, it opens. Helen steps out, feigned expression of apology on her face.

HELEN

I was entertaining Sarah and Lewis in the parlour. I mustn’t have heard you.

Jonathan reflexively eyes Helen’s figure under the tight dress. She grins, pleased. Collecting himself, he stiffens, adjusting the front of his buttoned coat.

HELEN

(sights Luma) This must be your niece.

Luma approaches their hostess. She takes a quick sniff of the air about the older woman.

HELEN

I am Helen Potter; all my friends call me Hel. Doubtless Clark’s mentioned me.

LUMA

(cocks eyebrow) I know everything worth knowing about you.

HELEN

Beware of unguarded talk. (chuckles) I don’t know your name.

LUMA

Luma-Lyn. Luma to my friends.

HELEN

It’s a joy to meet you, Luma.

LUMA

(firm) Luma-Lyn.

Helen’s smile of self-satisfaction briefly falters. The hostility radiating from Luma is subtle but palpable.

HELEN

Come in from the cold, won’t you? (tugs dress hem) It’s positively frigid.

INT. HELEN’S HOME/PARLOUR — TWILIGHT

Helen guides the Kents and Luma into her parlour, where the Langs are relaxing.

HELEN

Luma-Lyn, this would be my sister, Sarah. Her husband, Lewis.

Lana’s parents and the blonde exchange greetings.

Stepping behind Lana, Helen rests her hands on her niece’s shoulders.

HELEN

And this is Lana, my niece.

LUMA

Hello.

LANA

(eyes Luma) Quite the tall one, ain’tcha?

SARAH LANG

(frowns) Lana!

HELEN

(smiles) Lana can be quite the cheeky she-devil.

Helen pinches Lana’s cheek hard enough to make the redhead flinch.

LUMA

I take no offense, Lana.

HELEN

Dinner’s waiting to be served. Won’t everyone make their way to the dining room?

The Kents, Langs, and Luma head out of the parlour.

HELEN

Oh, Clark?

Clark turns to Helen.

HELEN

(cont’d) Help me in the kitchen?

Rumor - Star Wars: 2022 High Republic Era

Problem is, In Canon the Republic was established after the destruction of the Sith one thousand years before TPM.

“I will not let this Republic that had stood for a thousand years be split in two”

Not as if that doesn’t contradict previously established continuity in its own right (“For a thousand generations, the Jedi were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic.”). And Disney regards continuity more as guidelines than actual rules, anyway.

Reworking the sequel trilogy

I hate to mention the feminist problem, but, alot of these so called male feminists have no idea how to write or develop a strong female character, and then they rail for diversity, the tragedy is, to them diversity is only skin deep.
The fact that they’re dumb, and think they’re geniuses, then get mad when you point out that they aren’t speaks volumes about the problems plaguing this franchise.

I consider myself a male feminist, but I tend to agree. People like Wes Craven, J. Michael Straczynski, and the writing staff of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine knew how to do strong female characters right; good luck finding anyone of their calibre in present Hollyweird.
