Also, if you’re so against the preservation of the OT, why the hell are you even here? Are you simply a troll? Well, given that your join date was 2007 and you waited 15 years to post something, I’m not entirely sure.

Like shingles, trolls can stay dormant in the body for decades before activating.

😃

The whole thread is trolling. The intent of it, the content. the attitude. Even the mention of “Red Letter Morons”! The “no responses about the video I posted? I win” attempt at stoking.

A 4 hour video from George worshipers, lecturing others on how to Star Wars. Like JadedSkywalker said, a bad faith argument.

He is here to troll. More will be here soon, like that new Ejn troll who is also from the same narrow mindset.

That is a lot of mindless corporate speak from EA to say “Sorry, it’ll be late by 6 weeks!”

 

Some fans have updated Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2, with a couple of playable levels:

Fan-Made Star Wars Jedi Knight Remake Is Now Playable After Three Years Of Development from GameSpot

There is a 1 minute video of the playable levels here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PT2rEgeCJCE

It does look cool, I hope it plays as well as it looks.

Obi-Ant Man Kenobi!
 

Maybe Vader thought Kenobi had tried spinning just before striking him down? Vader does believe that to be a good trick!

He definitely already knew that

Ha! Obi-Wan was just mocking Vader with that “move” all this time.

<strong>Star Wars: Visions</strong> (animated short films) - a general discussion thread - * <strong>SPOILERS</strong> *
Time

Visions series 2 will air on May 4th on Disney+: https://www.starwars.com/news/star-wars-visions-volume-2
 

 
The 9 episode titles, by 9 different animation studios, are:-

“Sith” - El Guiri (Spain)
“Screecher’s Reach” - Cartoon Saloon (Ireland)
“In the Stars” - Punkrobot (Chile)
“I Am Your Mother” - Aardman (United Kingdom)
“Journey to the Dark Head” - Studio Mir (South Korea)
“The Spy Dancer” - La Cachette (France)
“The Bandits of Golak” - 88 Pictures (India)
“The Pit” - D’art Shtajio (Japan) and Lucasfilm
“Aau’s Song” - Triggerfish (South Africa)
 

I don’t know much about the studios other than Aardman, so I’m looking forward to some Gromit and more cheese in Star Wars!

A '<strong>Rumour and News</strong>' thread for reported new Star Wars films and tv series
Time

Ah, a bit disappointing. Though it is good to read Daisy would be open to appearing in Star Wars again sometime:

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-features/daisy-ridley-talks-star-wars-future-indie-film-1235315782/

'Naturally, Star Wars rumors continue to swirl around Ridley, and they likely always will as fans hope to see more of her beloved Jedi, Rey. THR previously reported that Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson are writing a post-Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker story for Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy to direct, so the question remains if Ridley/Rey will have a role in the stand-alone installment.

As of this moment, Ridley insists she knows nothing about what’s to come.

“I really don’t know if there are plans. I just don’t know,” Ridley says. “But ultimately, I loved my experience, I loved what I got to do and I love the people I got to work with. So, should that happen again, even once, amazing.”’
 

I hope that does happen one day. For me, there was nothing wrong with any of the actors in the Sequel films, and I’d happily watch them in any future Sequel era project we get.

The Vader vs Obi Wan duel in Star Wars: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_V8oM4hXA58 - at 2 minutes and 28 seconds

What was Vader expecting to find when he was stepping on Obi Wan’s cloak after he had struck Kenobi down?
 

Some pocket sand? A hole in the floor where Obi Wan had disappeared down? A note with the message “look behind you, the Rebels, the Princess and the two familiar droids are escaping, and you’re still standing here stomping on my cloak”?

Or something else?

Thanks guys. I enjoyed the Rebel Scum fan film, and memories of the Jedi Knight game came back to me as soon as I found a YouTube walkthrough on the level! I’ll keep an eye out for #78 comic as well.

I did a bit of looking around myself on the books and found there are a few Hoth and post-Hoth battle stories in the “Certain Point Of View” book for ESB, and I’ll get a copy of that soon too. Thanks again.

I wish someone would ask Kathleen Kennedy about the original versions of the movies

“Fine, I’ll do it myself.”

Where is the “Well, we’re waiting” meme when you need it? 😉

It is Celebration 2023 soon, and also the 40th anniversary of ROTJ so there should be a 40th Panel there with some higher ups or people who worked on the film. It would be good to see this question answered by Kathleen Kennedy or the oldROTJ crew on a live stream or in the media interview lines afterwards.

<strong>The Empire Strikes Back</strong> - a general <strong>Random Thoughts</strong> thread

timdiggerm said:

This could almost fit into the small details thread, but I don’t think it’s particularly obscure.

I wonder why they (Kershner?) decided it was so important to make sure Lando demonstrated proper safety protocols by wearing a safety harness & clipping in when getting onto the Falcon’s roof and grabbing Luke under Cloud City. It’s also such a shame any shots of Lando actually on the roof of the Falcon grabbing Luke were cut.

That was strange. Were the film companies at the time doing some “safety” promo work for the government around that time? Obi-Wan and Luke were shown to to belt up in the Falcon in Star Wars too. I think there was an anti-smoking advert with threepio and R2 around the time as well?

And the old joke about Ewoks having handrails everywhere in ROTJ, so they were actually more advanced than the Empire!

As a kid I used to often wonder what happened to any of the rebel soldiers left behind on Hoth. The ones out in the battle vs the walkers that the Empire didn’t or couldn’t find, or hiding in the base, or out on patrol elsewhere. And who didn’t have a rebel transport or ship to leave the planet sometime later.

Anyone know of any good EU/Legends or fan stories on this?

I think you got them all! Thanks for that, I am looking forward to watching those.
 

I love these speeches in Andor. Originally from the Andor thread:-

Marooned Biker Scout said:

I never thought we’d see lines of dialogue delivered in such a great manner again in Star Wars. The four main monologues now up on the official Star Wars channel are a joy to watch and listen to. Just four among many of the strong acting performances and high standards of writing and character interactions throughout the series:

Brian Davids of The Hollywood Reporter tweeted this earlier: https://twitter.com/pickyourbrian/status/1619149959500288001

Some have then started guessing games: “Unfounded prediction: Daisy Ridley will appear on stage at Star Wars Celebration London as they announce the next Star Wars movie will feature Rey. It will be the Lindelof film and it will be released in 2025. They will be in London because production will start in April ‘23.” - https://twitter.com/ATGcast/status/1617519242257260545
 

There is Probably nothing in it, but if there are to be new films set just after the Sequel Trilogy it would make sense for some of the main ST characters to cameo, or play guest parts in them?

Hi all,

I’m a member of the team at Leigh Film Factory, an independent cinema in the North West of England.

We’ve been lucky enough to get permission to screen the original trilogy on the Sunday of the May bank holiday weekend - 7th May. Tickets are available now if anyone is close by, or if anyone fancies travelling 😃

Hope to see some of you there,

Kevin @ Leigh Film Factory

Which version of the Original Trilogy films will you be showing?

Things that make you realise you're getting older
Time
  1. It takes two attempt and a loud exhale to get off the couch

  2. The MILF section on adult sites all look considerably younger than you

  3. Received a text last month: “In 7 years time the 80’s will be 50 years ago”. I laughed instantly because the 80’s were only a few… ah shit.
     

On the bright side you give less fucks about the trivial stuff than before. Now get off my lawn!

The original Force Unleashed is the best Star Wars game.
Time

I would have liked to have seen the third TFU game released, supposedly to conclude the Starkiller story. But it would have to been more engaging and fun than the uninspiring and repetitive gameplay for TFU II.

Another victim of LucasArts being closed down by Disney shortly after the 2012 takeover, although the game was only in “the initial ideas phase”: https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Star_Wars:_The_Force_Unleashed_III
