It’s got to be the Death Star, with a laser beam getting closer and closer to a helpless planet 😃

But if the laser represented the growing dollar total of donations, once funds were raised, wouldn’t that make it seem like the Empire had succeeded?

And that our pursuit had failed instead of being accomplished? 😕

It would work well as a count down to the time the bills are due though. 😉

And for what it’s worth, I’ll kick in a dollar a month.

Well, considering our logo is a Death Star…

Maybe somebody can make something like this? Seems perfect for it.

But do Wampas taste like Chicken? 😛

As the cut scenes prove, where there’s one Wampa, there are more Wampas. I doubt any survival training Luke ever had on Tatooine covered cold climates.
We can also presume Luke’s Taun Taun was probably half eaten at that point.

Interesting Han has the survival smarts he probably learned long before joining the Rebellion.

When some people live in areas with data caps or limited bandwith, I can’t see parents being too thrilled with streaming when their kids just want to watch the same movie over and over again.
I don’t see Disney putting their deep catalog on + either. If Filmstruck couldn’t make enough money with TCM and Criterion’s catalog at their disposal…

I honestly don’t care which consenting adult sentient beings Lando sleeps with. I have bigger fish to fry. I know from things I’ve read elsewhere that it’s an extremely incendiary topic for some, and could have been best avoided being dredged up here, even in passing.
If you don’t like a humorous parody of Billy Dee William’s 1980’s beer ads posted in this thread, try scrolling past them next time?

I can’t imagine why they would. Lucas never expressed any disenchantment with them AFAIK. And unlike the HS, they were his babies all the way, so to speak. Disney is just bad at back catalog stuff.
The Ewok Adventure turns 35 this year, so maybe something will happen? Maybe they can round up Warwick Davis and Eric Walker for a commentary track.

Fantasia Special Edition laserdisc HELP

Depends on the player. There can be video gremlins CLV doesn’t get. CAV is only 30 minutes (or less) per side, so more fuss doing a capture. The digital audio capture would be separate from the video. I run the optical output into a CD recorder, and the end result is a CD-R with the untouched PCM LD audio.
I capture on different players as the one with digital sound processes the video too much. It’s impossible to turn all the processing off completely. My oldest machine, (now over 30 years old!) is as close to raw video output as I can get, also less prone to video anomalies like laser rot, but only has analog sound output. The video will have the analog tracks with CX noise reduction though. Video is captured into a JVC DVD recorder at the highest quality settings and one disc per LD side. The audio is recorded as PCM.
