How bad is the crop of the 2019 master of Empire Strikes Back compared to other releases?
Time

As for other fan releases. The Silver Screen addition had no cropping regulations over it, so they could show more of the visible frame as people may have since it when in the theaters. Then for 4K77 they made the decision to return to a cropping as seen in official home releases.

I think it was just that the Technicolor print had less image than the LPP. I don’t remember them cropping anything that wasn’t necessary.

How big was Star Wars in the 70s 80s and 90s

I could be wrong, but I think you’d be hard-pressed to find many, if any, Star Wars references in shows like Seinfeld and Friends.

That episode came in fall 1996. In 1996-1997 SW was again everywhere, so there were a lot of shows from that time making references. 3rd Rock was another that springs to my mind immediately having Hamill. This trend went on until 2005. Likewise before TFA, SW was again everywhere, for example in Pawn Stars they had a SW item coming in every month during the hype. I’ve collected these kind of snippets to my archive so it’s fun to see the progression and it capsulates the time.

Vader's voice change in the OT

Fascinating. I would’ve never known (mostly because I never watch anything but the theatrical cuts).

I will admit watching the ANH clip posted above does sound a little different than I remember. Not drastically so. It’s obviously the same recording. Just… a little more processed? Or processed a little differently? Something.

In 2004 they tried to match his voice to the sequels. I’m surprised if people hadn’t noticed, I’ve only seen the 2004 version 3 times and noticed straight away!
Edit: and I didn’t even click the links so I don’t know what’s in them.

Favorite episode of Droids or Ewoks?
Time

I thought about this question and I have to say I can’t pick one. All I can say is that the Fromm story is my favorite and all four episodes equally good for different reasons. The prince story is my least favorite but still the episodes aren’t bad at all. Although I have to say that I’m not familiar with episodes 8-10 since I never had them on VHS. Having seen them only later in life at least 8 and 9 seem a little silly… 10 I don’t remember, nor Great Heep.

That sounds like a lovely watch 😋👍

Do still enjoy Deleted Magic, Building Empire, Returning To Jedi etc and now even more material available.

So do I. All the above material was also used in my compilation video - as well as the edit droid JEDI outtakes.

I wanted to see everything in chronological order - and in one place.

I’d love to see all available bloopers in chronological order. Would it be possible to cut only bloopers and share those? 😃 Complete chronological bloopers without any added cantina music etc. are something I’ve wanted to do if I only had the time, skills and access to everything. Even the compilation videos as they are would be great, I’d say it shouldn’t be too hard to edit them.

Disney + TV shows and the future of Star Wars on home video

Let’s say The Mandalorian lasts 4 seasons. Who is going to subscribe to Disney+ solely because of The Mandalorian after that? If they want to get more money out of that show, the only way is to make it available on physical media. If they do that, do you really think they would lose subscriptions at that point with 37 new shows coming up already?

That’s the point though, they keep adding new content to keep it going, but let’s say someone hates the new show but still loves Mando: they’re more likely to keep D+ (especially if there’s one other thing they’re curious about it enjoy) if there’s nowhere else to get it.

Years after it’s finished? Unlikely, or just unwise.

People subscribed to Netflix for years and only watched The Office and Friends. It’s more common than you’d think… and the people who don’t want to rewatch the show won’t be buying the physical media anyway.

I think you’re just posting to disagree. I don’t see how they would lose money at that point at all.

New 4K releases - but are they any good?
Time

Anyone here seen the new LOTR discs? I can’t believe they still couldn’t put the EEs on one disc. Anyways, I watched comparison videos on Youtube and they seem to have been completely recolored. In some scenes it’s not that drastic, but most were very apparent. One color shot was even converted to black and white! Luckily I didn’t put my BDs on sale. If I understood correctly, TE and EE have now same coloring? If so, then that’s your first mistake since they’ve always been colored differently. Very disappointed, excluding the FOTR SEE BD they have had always great and faithful releases until this.

Popularity of the Original Trilogy enhanced by Prequels?
Time

I remember in the 90s and early 2000s SW was extremely uncool. I don’t think the PT enhanced it, more likely the exact opposite. It was the thing sweaty geeks liked and it was always the butt of the jokes on late night TV etc. Only after 2010 it began to change. It became nostalgic, geeks became cool, Disney bought it, all memorabilia went high on prices, it was everywhere. It became completely mainstream. Now it seems like it was always like that but I remember vividly that even talking about them you got some strange or even angry looks from “normal” people. That was also back when it wasn’t cool to use or play computers, now teenage girls use more technology than me and like more the new movies than me, for whatever the reason. Funny how things change.
