The Random <em>Star Wars</em> Pics &amp; GIFs Thread

Here’s a pic of Mark Hamill with Corvette Summer co-star Kim Milford (left), at the Las Vegas Hilton circa July 1977. I don’t know who the other 2 people in the photo are, but Mark looks like he’s being held hostage.
Cool to think I was actually living in Las Vegas when this photo was taken!
Here’s the article that the photo came from:

Kim was probably talking Mark’s ear off about how Laserblast was going to be bigger than Star Wars. 😉

Attack of the Clones 35mm found on eBay

Here are a few frames I scanned in with a Nikon 2000 some years ago from bits of a film trailer, if anyone following this thread watns a look at perhaps vaguely what the full project here might look like (I haven’t ever scanned anything from the full final 35mm theatrical release reel for AOTC, with the different wedding scene, only these few scenes, scanning with a stills scanner is a slow process, from a scope trailer I got. These are the downscaled to 1920 across ones. Have the full size somewhere on my HD.):

I don’t recall that last one being in the movie! 😉

Here are screencaps from the Blu_Ray if you want to do any side by side comparisons…

Rian Johnson to Head New Star Wars Trilogy
Time

Darth Hade said:

Johnson’s trilogy will never happen. Disney is not that stupid.

This guy has completely polarized the fanbase like no other.

It’s worse than the backlash against the PT and Abrams hiring combined.

Movies are done for the time being after TROS.

They have high hopes for The Mandalorian and the Obi-Wan series. They are less sure about the Cassian series.

And they know fans want more Clone Wars.

As far as Star Wars being bigger than ever, well, that is b.s.

Solo was a colossal flop mostly due to TLJ backlash.
Toy and EU merchandise money is way down.
Galaxy’s Edge is not going as well as they initially hoped.
And they are worried about TROS. They feel like they have lost a sizable chunk of the fanbase forever.

Trust me. I am in this world and I own a ton of Disney stock. I specialize in currency arbitrage, but I know the common stock and commodities markets just as well. In fact, Disney is under suspicion for lying about their profits.

If anything, they will go with those Game of Thrones guys for any future movies. At some point, we will wake up to find that Disney and Johnson have parted company.

You own Disney stock? Why aren’t you representing this forum’s interests at stockholder meetings? 😉

A scene I would love to see in TROS...
Time

Darth Hade said:

Didn’t mean for it to sound that way.

But look at it this way…

We got Force ghost Yoda.
You know we are getting Force ghost Luke.
If Episode IX is officially the end of the Skywalker family saga, wouldn’t it make sense to want to see and hear from the main man, The Chosen One?

Steve Oedekerk? 😉

nobody is going to get this joke

Small details that took you <em><strong>FOREVER</strong></em> to notice in the <em>Star Wars</em> films
Time

Holy crap, I never noticed him either. The voice should have been a dead giveaway. As Lucas was influenced by Thunderbirds (in which Rimmer voiced Scott Tracy) for the look of The Clone Wars, the circle is now complete!

This also makes the Thunderbirds gag I contributed to Frink’s Episode III edit even sweeter. 😉

THX-1138 (1st Director’s Cut) 35mm Grindhouse Edition.
Time

Broom Kid said:

Has anything further come from this project, or are there any other similar projects? At this point a 35mm fan-preservation in 1080 is, for me, the OriginalTrilogy holy grail, simply because I think Star Wars will eventually get a hi-def official release at some point, but it’s no guarantee THX 1138 will ever be restored to what it was, and I’d love to be able to put that original version of this movie on in a resolution better than Laserdisc.

One of the top men involved has had medical and family issues to deal with recently. Work will resume eventually. I need to get a 16mm tv spot for THX out to them to get scanned.

The Kenobi <s>Movie</s> Show
Time

I have wondered if he somehow slipped into the identity of someone who actually was a hermit named Ben, who may have died unbeknownst to the locals, and had very little contact with anyway, and had a cozy little hovel beyond the Dune Sea. 😃

If the real Ben was killed by Tusken Raiders, it would add a dimension to how they freak out when Kenobi appears waving his arms and making scary noises.

IIRC, the novel mentioned he could speak the Wookiee language like a native. He certainly seems to be conversing with Chewie at the bar. I don’t see how he could run into Chewie prior to ANH and not encounter Solo though. Other Wooks are possible. Always wanted to see more of Tarrful.

Ben’s familiarity with Mos Eisely means he must have spent some time there or visited frequently. The Cantina is a perfect venue for other characters who are just passing through to appear. I’ve imagined Ben hitting an emotional low point early in his exile and perhaps drinking a little too much.
