I must be missing something because I don’t see any women in that photo.

You could be right… not to the right of Lando?
I thought the guard was female because thought I could see lipstick and makeup. Though it could be just the lighting, or my poor eyesight and judgment!

Uncorrected mistakes or unfixed issues of the 2019 (Maclunkey) Original Trilogy release?
Time

As there are two previous threads for talking about the unfixed issues & uncorrected mistakes of the 2004 & 2011 OT releases:

You’d think they’d clean this up - the unfixed issues of the 2004 OT SE DVD release… - by Stakiller

What HASN’T changed on the 2011 OT SE Blu-ray release – the uncorrected mistakes… - by Gavin
 

I thought it may be worth having a thread for the 2019 Original Trilogy releases as well…
 

What errors or mistakes still remain in this latest release of the Original Trilogy that are in need of fixing? Or improving upon?

John Boyega Would Love to See Finn’s Axed ‘Star Wars’ Storyline Get Told on TV or Animation’:

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/john-boyega-love-see-finn-144952512.html?
 

John Boyega openly criticized the most recent “Star Wars” trilogy for sidelining its characters of color, including his character Finn and Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose, so what does the actor think of the original storyline that got axed? A script leak for Colin Trevorrow’s scrapped Episode IX, titled “Duel of the Fates,” revealed Finn was originally going to end the trilogy by becoming a revolutionary and leading a class rebellion along with Rose on the galactic capital planet of Coruscant. The axed storyline would’ve completed Finn’s arc from defected Stormtrooper in “The Force Awakens” to the leader of an ex-Stormtrooper uprising in “The Rise of Skywalker.”

Trevorrow’s “Duel of the Fates” was rewritten by Chris Terrio and J.J. Abrams, and Finn’s revolutionary storyline was erased and redrafted as a much smaller role in what became “The Force Awakens.” Finn’s original storyline lives on in “Star Wars” concept art, which Boyega has seen and tells Yahoo he would have loved to see through.

“I think Colin Trevorrow was going to tell that story,” Boyega said. “The concept art in the ‘Star Wars’ book has that image of Finn with the blue flag, and you have the AT-ATs lined up with tribal marks, and the stormtroopers take off their helmets. That would have been sick. That would have been dope, hands down.”

Boyega said he’s a big fan of the Disney+ “Star Wars” series “The Mandalorian” (“Lucasfilm is doing very well with TV shows”), which is why he’d love to watch Finn’s original story arc get completed on TV (“If they could do it all in TV, I would love to watch it”). Does that mean Boyega would return as Finn? Not quite, although he expressed more interest in returning when pitched an animated series to complete Finn’s arc. “Animated? Yeah that would be cool,” Boyega said. “You could do it all from home.”

As for why he spoke out against the “Star Wars” trilogy for sidelining Finn, Boyega said, “I’m just trying to do what I was offered and I’m trying to fulfill my job. We all know that what makes roles so lucrative [are] the moments you give them. If Captain America doesn’t show out and show down and isn’t given the scenes to boost his representation, and to make him enjoyable for you guys, we won’t think he’s cool. Why shouldn’t Black characters and Black actors also fight for that same kind of representation?”

 

It’d be interesting to see a fan animation of this, I hope someone does something along that storyline one day.

I don’t think Lucasfilm would ever do it - unless re-written as Finn or even Lando rallying people to the cause of the Resistance set just prior to events of TROS? Maybe…

Good to see John Boyega not distancing himself from Star Wars too.

The Tex Murphy Thread - aka the thread for discussing avatar changes

^ Very cool. I hadn’t realised it was a pumpkin until you posted the larger image, I thought it was the sun reflecting in the visor! Did you make it yourself?

I think oojason said the past that if you leave the site, then refresh the cache (hit CTRL & F5 on most web browsers?), come back to the site, and any newly changed avatar should then appear. Otherwise it takes a few days for avatar changes to appear.

As stated in the other two threads you have posted about this THX disc project… yes - it was indeed released. There are also other THX Disc preservation projects.

Obviously, there are no links to download or acquire projects on this site. If you are unsure on how to try to acquire the fan preservation projects or fan edits etc…

I am so sorry to read that, ooJason.

I can only wish you good luck for the future and also send you deepfelt thanks for all you have done on here over the years. I remember you being a big part of the PIF movement on here many years ago and helping many all over the world (including me on my old account) get the latest quality LD to DVD transfers of the OOT and other cool Star Wars projects through the mail.

Then helping members out in general on here, and then even becoming a moderator during some pretty turbulent times both on here and for Star Wars fandom in general, all while still managing to help people out on here.

The Force Is With You.

Thank you for all your efforts.

^ Well worth taking the time out to give this article by doubleofive a good read, and then his other posts below it from the link above.

A really good read, and worthy successor to doubleofive’s excellent article on Wired.

I really hope it gets people sitting up and taking notice, and asking Lucasfilm those awkward questions they’ve been avoiding answering for far, far too long.
