Willow 30th Anniversary today!!!
Time

Before audiences get another taste of another Ron Howard Lucasfilm movie with “Solo: A Star Wars Story” later this week, today marks the first Lucasfilm project that Ron Howard did, the movie Willow.

At this very moment as I am typing this, I am listening to James Horner’s music for the film.

30 years. Where did the time GO?

“You started spouting poetry. ‘I love you, Sorsha.’ ‘I worship you, Sorsha.’ You almost got us killed!!”
“I love you, Sorsha? I don’t love her! She kicked me in the face! I hate her! Don’t I?”

Preserving the...*cringe*...Star Wars Holiday Special

This part in the Ebay page stuck out to me: “Since 1978, these tapes have been stored in air-conditioned vault.”

Whomever this saffilms guy is, this means they are in PRISTINE condition. What I wonder is, is the quality even better than the EditDroid one? Because that one so far has been the ultimate highest quality one yet (of course, though, the Zion hybrid is great too). I hope whoever bought these will transfer them to digital so fans can see it. I am all for having the highest quality version ever. Especially since this is the 40th anniversary year of it.

I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the end credits music in the film was different from the one on the soundtrack. For some reason, there has been this long-standing thing about changing the end credits in every single Star Wars film, with the exception of A New Hope (the end credits on both the film and the soundtrack are the same; unless you count the Special Edition’s film end credits, which wound up having sections repeated because of the added credits). Boggles the mind. Oh well, that just creates for us a sort of bonus track, doesn’t it?

I don’t remember the PT soundtracks other than ROTS, which had longer version on the soundtrack, but I’m pretty sure TESB and ROTJ have the same music on the soundtracks that are in the films?

Pretty sure TESB’s is the same. Not sure about RotJ though.

Actually, you would be surprised. I have burned discs for myself of all the “extra music” from each of the OT movies, and there are definitely some differences in the Finale/End Credits for TESB. For some curious reason, first off, the statement of the Han Solo and The Princess theme (both on the original 1980 LP and Special Edition soundtrack) was NOT in the film version. Then, the transition bit just before the end credits is different from the album presentations. And here’s a real doozy: there are TWO film versions of the end credits, one a bit faster than the other (the one on the Special Edition soundtrack). And an even odder thing, the original 1980 album actually spliced in the last half of The Imperial March into its version of the end credits, instead of the one used in the common end credits. (???)

As for ROTJ, the first few seconds of the end credits WERE on the original album and in the movie, but now they were replaced for the Special Edition soundtrack. Don’t know what that is all about. Tinkering and changing, I don’t know why. Oh well.

Strange that the site didn’t have pics of the 1995 THX Widescreen Edition Box Set, I used to have that one:

STAR WARS: REBELS - animated tv series - 2014-2018
Time

I was pleasantly surprised last night to hear Malcolm McDowell’s voice on the two episodes!! I had not read anywhere that he was going to be on there. And to hear the voice of the man who actually played Palpatine, Ian McDiarmid, was a great treat!! It’s sad that next Monday night is the final 3 episodes. What an adventure this has been.

This is rather embarrassing, but I completely missed out on the Boba Fett animatic leica reel that the official site had almost 10 years ago. I have tried using Wayback Machine to get it, but since the site switch that Disney did, all flash content from 2008 to 2011 no longer works. I was wondering if someone still has a copy of the leica reel that they can send me via private topic message. Thanks in advance for your time and consideration for that!! 😃
