There was a small display screen in the Falcon cockpit. I presume for the Navi computer? It’s seen (and heard) being used in ESB, but we never actually see what they’re looking at, so darned if I know where it actually is on the console.

It’s a small screen to the left of the center of the console:

You can see it on set in this BTS pic:

Luke’s Landspeeder was intended to have a scanner display, and animation for tracking down Artoo was actually made but was cut.

Seriously, how long do we wait before drafting a new petition that simply opens with “Dear Walt Disney Company”?

I was so certain the Unaltered Original Trilogy would be announced during Celebration for the 40th anniversary. While standing in various lines I would mention it during conversation and always the same response… blank stares. It was like I was speaking latin or something. I don’t know if they just had no idea what I was talking about or were just devoted to whatever is said to be the official version that the idea of anything else was blasphemous.

I know how that is. I learned to stop bringing the subject up at Celebration after I started getting belligerent and pedantic responses toward it. It’s a truly sad state of affairs.

And I thought I was the one with a problem when I had more than 5 different versions of the ESB and still wasn’t satisfied. LOL

Coversation would usually go one of two ways:

Tobar: So do you think they’ll ever release the original theatrical versions?
Rudeman: What do you mean by original exactly? You know there really is no such thing as one original version! There were different sound mixes released simultaneously in theaters, which is the original?!? You know there were changes made between the 35mm and 70mm versions of the films! And what about the different crawl when they re-released A New Hope??? So you see, there are no original versions because there’ve always been multiple versions from the start!

or

Tobar: So do you think they’ll ever release the original theatrical versions?
Rudedude: Excuse me? Why would I want incomplete films?!?

Topher Grace Saga Trailer
Time

I thoroughly enjoyed it. It managed to unite various parts of the franchise I’m not a fan of and make them feel like they really are all part of a whole. It evoked that special Star Wars feeling that I haven’t felt in ages. The deleted scenes were used impeccability.

I hope this leads to him getting to work with Lucasfilm. He clearly loves and understands this far, far away galaxy.

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

I know that the title “Balance of the Force” has been used on some Star Wars content in the past, but the title “The Last Jedi” was also used before in the past too.

Wasn’t the first time either:

As for Episode IX’s marketing, I think that it will be marketed as the last installment of the sequel trilogy, but not the main saga.

It already is being marketed as the last of the saga. This is from the original cast announcement for IX:

STAR WARS: EPISODE IX CAST ANNOUNCED
Star Wars: Episode IX will begin filming at London’s Pinewood Studios on August 1, 2018. J.J. Abrams returns to direct the final installment of the Skywalker saga.

UNBREAKABLE (2000)

Solid film from back when M. Night Shyamalan was at his peak. Solid direction and performances from everyone.

SPLIT (2016)

A solid thriller and return to form from Shyamalan after a long slump. Fantastic performances from McAvoy. I wish I hadn’t missed this opening weekend and been one of those caught offguard by the ending.

GLASS (2019)

After nearly two decades we finally and suddenly have a complete UNBREAKABLE saga. Excellent execution and integration of SPLIT and UNBREAKABLE. Great performances from all, I was delighted to find that the actor that played Willis’ son also returned to his role 19 years later. I was surprised and amazed to discover this was a co-production between Universal and Disney, major kudos to Shyamalan for pulling that off. Hopefully he can continue on this streak of winners.
