Episode IX - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

This rumor could be a steaming pile of Bantha poodoo?
http://epicstream.com/news/TinyDiapana/Disney-Reportedly-Brought-George-Lucas-To-Fix-Star-Wars-Episode-IX

And ye gods, is there anyplace I can go online where I don’t have to hear people bitching about Star Wars? It wasn’t even a Star Wars chat where I heard about this.

I’ll be at the Galaxy’s Edge theme park soaking in all the Star Wars I can, seeing Episode IX multiple times in Dolby, and enjoying my Disney+ subscription. Life is short, I am going to enjoy what I enjoy.

Feel free to do that. But try to at least retain some class consciousness and remember what Disney is.

Marxism on a Star Wars board. Seriously?

I don’t think I’ll live to see the end of Star Wars, so I’ll take all I can get before I die.

It depends on how old you are. I think I will. This Disney thing will not last long.

Won’t last long? How long do you think? Give me your prediction or best guess.

Never say never!

To clarify, remakes aren’t happening while George is around. There’s been enough speculation about a no OOT release clause in the Disney deal. There could just as easily be a no remakes clause?

I saw a post on imdb that really cracked me up. The poster (whose handle is ‘bobsutherby’) points out that by draining the sun, the SK Base consequently kills every planet in that system anyway. So all the base needs to do is drain stars!

Which begs the question (this is me now) - how does the FO choose which system it will destroy in order to power up to destroy another? Does it wait until at least 2 systems are in transgression, or does it have to choose stars with uninhabited or no planets?

I thought the IMDB forums were deleted after they closed them?

I’m not a fan of these stand alone films. They don’t seem to be working, and I think they’re ruining Star Wars by taking away the mystique and fan fare of the episodes.

If they want to make a good Obi-Wan movie, then they should remake the prequels.

We’ve only had two so far, one that did better than expected, and one that was seemingly cursed from the beginning with behind the scenes turmoil, and being released into an overcrowded summer market far too soon after TLJ.

Remakes are not happening.

Dr. No Rare Uncut Version 1st Beta/VHS release 1982

Yeah, I’ve done my share of tinkering over the years. Had to unjam one of my Laserdisc players more than once. There isn’t much left in consumer electronics one can tinker with the insides today. I’m amazed I was able to fix the now ten year old HDTV in my living room. I came very close to junking it, but a little online research really paid off. It just needed some bad capacitors replaced on the power board. I had some help with the de-soldering and soldering, but I did the rest. It’s as good as new.
I doubt the super slim flat panels made now even have that many circuit boards within.
