Star Wars trilogy box sets coming next year?
Time

There is something you need to know: there is no conspirary to hide away the OOT. If the guy doesn’t mention the OOT, it’s just because it ain’t about the OOT. If one day they release them, it will be clear and crystal. The Star Wars canon for Ep I to VI are the cuts available since 2011.

I’m glad it seems they might have found a way to improve the video quality of even Ep II and III. The “will please fans” is probably all deleted scenes available in HD (like the ones showed last year with “this Sith Lord” being said during ANH officer meeting).

Your thoughts on the Episode IX title - <strong>'The Rise Of Skywalker'</strong> - a NON-SPOILER thread
Time

T3: Rise of the machines was translated as Le soulèvement des machines, which was a good translation for this context. Dark Knight Rises was translated… Dark Knight Rises 😄

In this context Apogée is a good title. It seems it exists in english as well (Apogee… probably of french origin ?), would have been even nicer to use it for the original title : The Skywalker Apogee 😃

The Rise of… is too common for a Saga such as Star Wars.

“Skywalker” as non plural feels very palpatine. I hear his voice when I read the title.

He’ll have to wait on international translations to know if it’s singular or plural. That’s being said, I considerer they made a mistake with TLJ translated in plural in french, whereas Rian explained it was meant to be singular.

L’apogée de Skywalker

ou bien

L’apogée des Skywalker

Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

I like the fact the best ideas from this trailer are from Lucas 😄

It kinda mixes his 2010’s Episode 7 ideas with his (and Kurtz) 1980’s Episode 9 ideas.

I’m sold on the Emperor. Could be the only way to redeem lame Snoke to make him a puppet of a Palpatine Force Ghost.

Lando looks like Solo in episode 7, i.e. lame 😕

It would be great to have a nine film box set of all three trilogies. The unfortunate truth is that the unaltered versions of the original trilogy will never be released (most likely something George Lucas made clear when selling his property to Disney in the contract). It would be nice is Lucasfilm color corrected the Special Editions to remove the color timing issues that were introduced in the original 2004 DVD release.

What Disney business executive would be crazy enough to agree to that deal?

Executive who is going to make billions out of Star Wars in a world where the original cuts don’t interest much people ?
Executive who is buying every single franchise ?
Executive who is burying most of new content to keep audiences in a nostalgia trend ad vitam aeternam ?

…Disney executive in a nutshell…

STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>NOW IN PRODUCTION</strong>
Time

If you assume/consider that Solo and Rogue One are better movies than Ep I, II or III, which is not the case (at least for me). Besides, Ady no longer wishes to alter the PT. I remember he talked about a “R1 personal edit”, not sure he did make it; for sure if he did, he didn’t share it for some reason.

Does anyone know how Rey/Chewie knew the circumstances of the ‘slow chase’ and how/where to come out of hyperspace in order to send Rey to Snoke’s ship?

Maybe they read the script 😉

The beacon. Finn gave it to Poe before he went gambling.

I think the question is how did Rey know that the First Order was there (as it’s a beacon to the Resistance). The simple explanation is that she saw their location as part of her vision when she touched hands with Ben.

Ah, I see that now. Thanks! And I agree with your explanation.

And Ben wouldn’t know her (and Luke’s) location as well ?

Rogue One * <em>Spoilers</em> * Thread
Time

Yep, the shield breaking is kinda sloppy. It would have been better to take down a “proxy/firewall” shield (like Ben deactivating the magnetic field in ANH) than tearing apart a “physical” shield. The shot of the destroyer falling into it is neat, but quite over the top considering in ANH Imperial Officers don’t seem that impressed by the Rebel victory over Scarif (guys, they just destroyed a couple of Star Destroyer, a planetary shield, and the Imperial Army archives have been wiped out because of them ! How is it possible that Tarkin under estimates their chances in ANH ?!?).

So, how I would have pictured it with a less obvious rewriting:

  • commando team reaches the planet surface
  • they get the plans
  • they try to escape with the plans
  • shield is closed, damned ! (their pilot was killed anyway, but still…)
  • idea ! we can transmitte them
  • man, there is an “anti data transmission” shield ! F*** !
  • ok guys, this one can be taken down on the surface
  • ok, job is done, transmite the plans !
  • the dish is not aligned… come on guys for f*** sakes !
  • dish aligned, good !
  • damned, how come Krennic is there ?
  • cool, Krennic is out, wasn’t easy with all his dark troopers but it’s cool, now push it, beam the plans !
  • ABOARD REBEL AMIRAL SHIP : yeah, we get the plans, now we can leav… hum, what’s that noise ?
  • FRACKING VADER WITH A RED SABER GOING BERSERK, run you fools !!!
  • ok, quickly beam the plans to Leia’s ship, she’s the closest we can trust, beam several transmissions to be sure
  • TANTIVE IV : Princess, we just got several transmissions. They contain the DS plans. Here is a storage card with all the data. Bad news is, there seems to be an Imperial ship going on our way…
  • A NEW HOPE

So you remove the “master switch” subplot to replace it with a “destroy the anti-transmitter” action scene, and it’s done !
