By saved in editing I mean exactly that, it’s no longer an ambiguous idea since now we’ve all seen what a slog the original structure would have been and how bad the deleted scenes are.

Yes, the original edit of Star Wars was bad, but the original edits of most movies are bad, too. That’s why editing exists. Star Wars wasn’t “saved by the edit” more than any other movie.

Yeah but what I’m saying is that we know what it looks like when George has 100% control, without these award winning editors, and it’s the PT. He needs those other people to save it from his “vision”.

Yeah and when I mean managed I mean y’know one all time classic saved in editing etc. rather than a whole career sparkling with gems like Scorsese, Coppola and De Palma. People with passion who thrive on rather than shrink away from the job. But sure maybe those alleged personal projects he’s been speaking about for the last decade will appear and surprise us all…

Don’t know if this was mentioned or matters but Empire of Dreams is on Amazon Prime.

It’s been on youtube for years.

I can’t believe one of the most popular movie franchises of all time, now owned by one of the largest movie studios of all time, and the best option for viewing those movies is currently fan restorations.

Oh I can. There’s a genius narrative George started and it helps their branding to continue the same story.

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

I’m primed to either feel Justice League or Star Trek Into Darkness levels of nausea. I’d prefer it not to be this way of course but I have little faith in the film makers involved, and it was the same when the man behind Jurassic World was still attached. I’ll be very surprised if it’s any better or worse than TFA but that’s the realistic bar I imagine they’re aiming for, depending on how indulgent JJ is and how much Saga stuff Disney demands.

What did SS say? I can’t find it.

Then there’s this reply from someone at TCM
