Or did he plan to use the same effect to repeat Marjorie Eaton’s performance?
After the post ROTJ Ewok movie dirge SW started back on an upwards climb in popularity thanks to the all novels, all the Lucasarts games and all the toys from Kenner and Galoob. The PT may be the zenith of that journey but I think the OT movies would be remembered all the same without them.
Well either there is a profit in collectors items and the ‘limited’ style of release they often do… or they are testing the waters to see if demand is low enough to stop. In some ways it might just be a way of keeping the public eye on certain brands. But one thing is certain; that poster art shows they think that the consumer doesn’t remember what the art is actually for, and that the legal release of OOT is likely doomed.
That sounds like what they call a waking nightmare.
Thanks for sharing. I’ve only seen season one so far but that’s fair. I also thought Hidden Enemy was a good combination of the best elements: Clones and Asajj Ventress. It was also worth skipping anything that begins with the narration “Representative Binks…”
Probably just and oversight since Empire of Dreams has been given it’s own Special Edition treatment with a disclaimer. There doesn’t seem to be any clear control over which OT clips are allowed and when, which is kind of strange. Maybe they just want the lines to be intentionally blurry.
I mean maybe, if you really want to collect the artwork on the inserts.

Good news! It’s also an audio drama!
It will also be animated on youtube… eventually.
ALOL that was a good one.

The shot where Ben Solo arrives on Exogol and the camera reveals an Imperial TIE next to a Rebel X-wing.
I guess I’m just a miserable killjoy who sees a short range fighter without a Hyperdrive and wonders how the hell it got halfway across the galaxy.
Should have been a later model. Also the markings on the X-Wing don’t match the OT and the helmet Rey wears looks weird.
Uhhhh on topic… I enjoy the Kimiji sequences both the way it all looks, the John Williams cameo, and the Force Link Duel.
I don’t know if there’s a thread somewhere but Empire of Dreams has a “we changed stuff” disclaimer at the start now. Presumably because it now includes the pink saber from 2004 and the Ewok eyelids from 2011, amongst other things.
Edit: I also watched the Clone Wars CGI movie. It was real bad. Like worse than I could have even imagined. Good grief.
Streaming exists so save money, so no thanks.
I just watched some of the first movie and I don’t like it. Not much else to say, it was the standard HD version not 4K but it looks way too cold (despite possibly more detailed than I’ve seen before).
I enjoyed the show quite a bit. It’s got the problem of many shows where the first and last two parts are all the best stuff, but overall nicely done. One part that left me puzzled was how the AT-ST was seen as any threat. Doesn’t the Razor Crest have guns? Can’t they hi-jack it stealthily? Can’t they get a couple of logs roped up?
If someone can explain tracking in this universe that would also be nice. Not exactly sure what’s going on, since it makes the ever present threat seem weirdly contrived. Also takes away from the actual bounty hunting since it’s more like bounty geocaching?
This game is great, except for the way it seems to take place just a few years after the prequels and yet they have all the technology from Rogue One. Pacing is weird on the later worlds though. I’m talking about after you meet that one certain bearded guy. Oh and glitches and stuff are still apparent. Also how many ponchos does one man need…
My final thoughts since I probably won’t watch this again… it’s actually good up to the Star Destroyer, in which you get “I’m the spy” and “you’re a Palpatine” and blah blah. After that the finale is so visually messy that I can’t really get into it just as an action scene. For its faults TLJ has very striking sequences at the end. This just made me tired.
I feel like your constant anti-Disney crusade makes you assume the worst sometimes.
I don’t think referencing the primary subject of this board is a “crusade”. Or how anything else I say on here is anti-Disney to be honest. Chill out.
Crazy I just saw another bigger version of that pic in another thread.
Nice. I used to have like a small print of that photo from somewhere, man that was a long time ago.
Temuera Morrison has (supposedly) been cast as Boba Fett in S2. Which means they want that 2004 ESB dub of Boba Fett to pervade into other media.
This only raises more questions.
Has there ever been a silent screening of any of the OOT movies with a live orchestra? I always thought that would be a wonderful thing to see.
Yeah, that would be amazing. The SE live orchestra screenings were fun, but kind of counteracted by the distracting SE changes.
I don’t care for the scores for the PT very much. I think a lot of the overkill with the music was to try and distract from what was happening (or not happening) on the screen. ROTJ is my favorite of all the scores.
Agreed. I think Williams realized that the prequels were extremely boring, so he tried to compensate with lots of epic choir music. Padme’s Ruminations in particular sounds more like Gladiator than Star Wars.
That’s because John Williams could see all the freed slave/Ancient Rome vibes even if the film makers were too incompentent to actually execute those ideas properly. He’s a pro.
George once said that ‘once all the older VHS tapes are worn out the only thing left will be my version’.
Looking at Disney’s negative attitude towards film preservation even just recently I feel like they have the same idea. Eventually people will forget that Solo had directorial problems. People will forget that Star Wars 1977 didn’t include Jabba. People will even forget that Splash didn’t include CGI censorship. The digital domain will be the only thing left and they will own it.
They might not even know what it’s about. If there evne is an idea. It seems like these projects get handed out so often to film makers now, some are likely to never materialise. Will the plans given to the Game of Thrones guys ever be used? Plus there’s the increasingly unlikely Rian trilogy.
Why is Ryan still here? I thought he was banned for his constant bad attitude long ago.
The dead speak!
