Am I the only one who thinks it’s odd that anyone here would advocate for essentially a “special edition” of any Star Wars movie?
screams in the void said:
In my opinion , the documentary , From Star Wars To Jedi The Making Of A Saga is the Gold Standard of all official Star Wars documentaries to date.
What about Empire of Dreams?
I love Star Wars more, but Dangerous Days: Making Blade Runner is my favorite making-of doc.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
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.”

Friday, August 23
On Friday afternoon at 3:30 p.m., the highly anticipated streaming service Disney+ will give guests a first look at some of its original content including Lady and the Tramp, The Mandalorian, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, and many more during this star-studded presentation.
I’d love for the real Original Trilogy to be readily available to future audiences. I consider it part of our cultural heritage and an important part of cinematic history, but I feel for my own sanity I will have to find contentment in my Harmy discs for now. I’m very thankful they exist. Maybe one day, we will have something more official for everyone, but I’m not getting my hopes up.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Was Edited on Set
”When we did The Force Awakens, we started in May and we finished shooting in October, and we were out [the following] Christmas. For this film, we didn’t start until August, so we weren’t done until February shooting – so we have four months less time, and it’s a very big film. So I convinced J.J. to let me cut [The Rise of Skywalker] on the set. He was like, ‘No, we never do that.’… I had the [director of photography] right there to ask questions. If I needed a shot, or if J.J. decided we needed another shot, we would set up in a corner and get a green screen shot of something. Getting to know the cast and having them be comfortable with me, it was a really great way to understand what they were going through.”

I love all the pics by Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair’s Star Wars issue. I really think they’re going to knock this one out of the park. The hype will be intense.
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.
How is there a new Lego Star Wars game? I thought only EA could make Star Wars video games under their deal?
Yes! I want it!
“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.”
The Mandalorian starting in November and The Rise of Skywalker a month later in December will make this one of my favorite holiday seasons ever.
They only announced those figures, but then cancelled them before release with no explanation.
The Clone Wars is also EU because it isn’t in the movies. Everything that’s not in the movies is EU.
That used to be what they referred to as EU, but that term is not used anymore. It’s either canon or it isn’t. If it isn’t, it’s legend.
The level of underachieving here would be like Hasbro only making two action figures, Uncle Owen and BB-8.
I’ll most likely buy it once it gets discounted. Looks fun, but not day-one full-price kind of fun.
I don’t see the term “Expanded Universe” used anymore. I just see “canon” and “legends”.
Most of what used to be referred to as the EU is now legend.
The Clone Wars is canon.
Mon Cala is in several episodes of The Clone Wars animated series.
Fallen Order looks great.
I wish there were single player action games like this, but that followed the actual movies so we could play as favorite characters in familiar scenes. Right now the old Lego games are the only thing close to that.
I can’t believe we have this much Star Wars movie and TV content but so few Star Wars games.
I wonder if the Ewoks are waiting for C-3PO to return.

It would be awesome if that bread Rey made was one of the food items available in Galaxy’s Edge.
Admiral Ackbar was only in Return of the Jedi for 2:45 and 0:15 in The Force Awakens.
Screen Time Breakdown: Star Wars
I wonder how long this reservation thing is going to last? With alcohol being served, the whole being escorted out of GE by troopers could get ugly really fast.
I don’t think anyone is getting drunk with those drink prices.
Watch Star Crash, then Star Wars.
