The future of OT.com - UPDATE: Please donate!

Would Patreon be a viable option for this as a way for people to kick in a buck or two on a monthly basis to keep the lights on? The good news is that $70 isn’t a huge amount of money so it wouldn’t take that many people giving small monthly donations to reach that goal.

I’m not here a LOT but I do value this place. Patreon or some such would work for me.

Thanks. I’d gotten as far as the Robot Auction myself and yeah, those micro-edits are a pain. Whoever it was did a fantastic job.

Although they made some changes and restored some score that is on the CD that was not in the film such as The Little People Work and not including the edit when the sandcrawler rolls over the hill to the Lars’s farm. I haven’t listened to how the music is handled when Luke and Threepio are looking for Artoo. (Lotta edits there.)

Really disappointed with how they handled Sabine and Zeb capturing Rukh. I get that you can’t have Zeb killing him with his bare hands, but Sabine could’ve Raising Arizona’d him with a real grenade instead of a paint bomb, or at the very least they could have brought him back to the rebels. Drawing goofy shit on him like a passed out college kid and SENDING HIM BACK TO THE EMPIRE just isn’t something I can swallow, especially after what just went down.

I’m hoping they have a larger plan. It sounded like they did with the tracking device.

But yeah, ten minutes after the gang was throwing stormtroopers off of buildings like Pez, suddenly NOW we can’t kill someone?

Of course Rukh also has script immunity nearly rivaling a Skywalker.

Nice obscure reference. Technically it’s concept art Yoda as that’s all Marvel had to work with.
I scanned the purple Yoda pages out of a crumbling paperback edition of the Marvel ESB adaptation several years ago. The Yoda pages were redrawn by the time the regular monthly issues saw print.

IIRC there were THREE different editions of that comic with various stages of Yoda-ness.

When I was younger watching ANH for the first time, I really believed that Luke and Leia were going to end up together at the end of the film. Then in the TESB Han suddenly became the third wheel and because Luke was out of the picture on the MF, Leia eventually succumbed to his advances. In the scene when Luke is calling out to Leia I took it that the reason she was able to hear him was because deep down it was Luke who she truly loved not Han. Then it was revealed that they were brother and sister, which changed everything.

That’s a pretty accurate description of reality before ROTJ. “Younger” had nothing to do with it.

“8yo: Star Wars is serious! Everyone is dying!”

That’s awesome! Thank you!

Not ENTIRELY on topic, but my 8 year old will be seeing Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan with me in the cinema next month (the 7 year old says ‘no’ but he is waffling a little). She’s seen bits and pieces but never from end to end. Say what you want about JJ but Beyond is getting her interested in Trek. I can’t live blog it (cinema) but I’ll be watching with an even keener eye.

Out of curiosity, have you guys ever watched this video?

Absolutely. It toes the line between parody and reality.

My kids have seen the OT (despecialized, of course), TFA, and Rogue One. They watch Rebels and sometimes Clone Wars. (My boy likes the clones a lot.)

Every once in a while I think about showing them the PT just because they know bits of the story. Then I remember Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith and Hayden and I just can’t do it.

We did watch the final battle between Obi-wan and Vader. That was back when my kids were 4 and 5. Even then they thought it was dumb. “Why isn’t Ob-wan picking up his friend and saving him from the lava?” “I don’t know. Ask George.”
