Is it Lucas, or Fox, who has prevented the restored OOT release?
Time

Just my own anecdotal opinion, but I’d say the percentage of the general movie watching population that even knows about the changes is low. I’d even go further to say the percentage of actual Star Wars fans that care about the changes is also low. The unaltered originals are not commercially available. George’s version is in 4K UHD and streaming digitally. I’m sure he feels history has successfully been rewritten.

Try to take it easy with the Lucas bashing.
Time

I just wanted to post some nice things about George without starting a new thread, so I found this one. I agree with everything in the Revisionist thread, and I think that collection of information is extremely important to maintain, but I still love Star Wars and appreciate Lucas for creating the sandbox. I’ve thought about starting a thread similar to the Revisionist thread to highlight some of the good things he’s actually done, but I’m not sure I’m knowledgeable enough to properly author it, or if there would be any interest in such a thing.

I still love George Lucas. He created one of my favorite things of all time. No, he didn’t do it all alone, but without him none of this would be here. I don’t agree with everything he’s said and done, but I feel the good vastly outweighs the negative. It’s very easy to lose perspective by focusing on an aspect you don’t like, but when I back up and look at everything, I’m just so happy and appreciative that George Lucas made Star Wars.

Omnibus Special Edition - Flying Solo

I added this one and another Omnibus episode I found while searching. Thanks!

benduwan said:

Science of Star Wars - Man and Machine
Science of Star Wars - Space Cowboys
Science of Star Wars War - Weapons and the Force

“Man and Machine” was already on the list. I added “Space Cowboys” and “War, Weaponry and the Force.” I originally thought it was one documentary with three segments, but they appear to have been presented as three individual episodes. Also added links to all three.

benduwan said:

why you seperate the " a long time ago in a galaxy far,far away… " from STAR WARS and double the youtube,vimeo,amazone prime and ot forum column?

The top portion is mainly for documentaries and special features included with different releases of the movies. The bottom is for documentaries that primarily aired on television or were released separately. I didn’t feel the need to continue columns for certain media releases since nothing in the bottom portion will be in those columns.

Arena: The Force is With Us? is already listed on the spreadsheet. This is the page it links to: https://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/arena-the-force-is-within-us/z4gq92p

The link you posted above leads to the same 6:33 long video.

Here is an entry for the episode on imdb:

(season 3, episode 16 - aired January 1978)

I haven’t found a link to view the entire episode. If you have one, please share.

LEGO 'Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga' video game thread

“The galaxy is yours with LEGO® Star Wars™: The Skywalker Saga! Play through all nine Star Wars™ saga films in a brand-new LEGO video game unlike any other. Experience fun-filled adventures, whimsical humor, and the freedom to fully immerse yourself in the LEGO Star Wars universe like never before.”

I hope they expand on it with Rogue One and Solo content. I could go for a little Clone Wars, Rebels and Resistance content as well. Heck, toss in The Mandalorian too. I only want it all.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

https://www.starwars.com/news/e3-2019-lego-star-wars-the-skywalker-saga-coming-2020?cmp=smc|2395880549

Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will feature hundreds of playable characters — the most ever for a LEGO Star Wars game

For the first time in the series’ history, players can start the game at any point in the Star Wars timeline; fans can jump in with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, begin the original trilogy with Star Wars: A New Hope, or launch right into Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

“With the Skywalker saga coming to an end, we wanted to give fans the ultimate Star Wars video game experience with all the humor and charm that is uniquely LEGO,” said Douglas Reilly, vice president, Lucasfilm Games. “LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will bring to life all those Star Wars adventures remembered and undiscovered in an epic culmination of all nine saga films as fans celebrate the closing of this chapter in Star Wars.”

The New Lego Star Wars Is Impressive And Surprisingly Different

https://kotaku.com/the-new-lego-star-wars-is-impressive-and-surprisingly-d-1835527239

The camera is closer in and behind-the back, with the character pushed in much closer than usual, similar to how you’d view you the action and the character you’re controlling in a Gears of War game. The camera is controlled freely with the analog stick. This angle will also be used in the game’s levels. He noted how deftly kids work with free cameras in Minecraft and Fortnite, among others.

Combat now involves light attacks, heavy attacks and force moves, allowing for more complex fighting and button combos, a depth attempted in few Lego games other than the recent Lego Ninjago Movie adaptation.

Looks more like it is composed of Lego bricks than any other game I’ve seen in the franchise.

there will be five levels for each film and that the developers are trying to focus as much as possible on sections of the movies that weren’t turned into levels in previous Lego games.

You can stop doing one sidequest before finishing it, start another and the game will remember your progress in the other quests.

We were shown a basic side quest—one of apparently 500 set up for the game—involving translating for and then helping a Gonk droid. Also teased some more interesting types of activities in the open world: bounty hunter missions in which you go to a planet to seek a character hidden on another planet and “smuggler’s runs” where you pick up cargo and have to fly it from system to system without being caught by the Empire.
