The way they’re doing the Discovery version of the Enterprise would have been tolerable.

What they did not only to the design of the Klingons but their culture as well in season 1 absolutely precludes it being part of the Prime Timeline.

And that’s ignoring the ridiculous Star Wars holograms throughout the series.

They could never make Discovery if they were beholden to the aesthetic of the 60s, but some people don’t want a change in precedence.

And that’s why it shouldn’t have been set when it’s set. Nothing about it aside from who her adopted parents are necessitate it being set pre-TOS.

And if they really wanted her tied to Vulcan they could have made her Spock’s adopted daughter instead of sister.

Industrial Light & Magic Launches 'ILM TV'
Time

Industrial Light & Magic expanding its offering of best-in-class visual effects and animation services to include the streaming and episodic television market with a new division: ILM TV. The division will be based out of ILM’s new 47,000 square foot London studio and supported by the company’s global locations in San Francisco, Vancouver and Singapore.

The ILM TV team will be lead by Visual Effects Supervisors Hayden Jones and Jonathan Privett alongside Executive Producers, Louise Hussey and Stefan Drury. Previously, the team set up and oversaw DNEG’s television division; winning a BAFTA for Special, Visual and Graphic Effects for their work on BLACK MIRROR.

ILM TV’s first projects will be Lucasfilm’s eagerly anticipated live action series based in the Star Wars universe, THE MANDALORIAN, being developed by Jon Favreau and Superman prequel series KRYPTON, now in its second season, based on DC characters from Warner Horizon Scripted Television for SYFY.

“It’s not often you get to create a new division at Industrial Light & Magic”, explained Rob Bredow, Executive Creative Director and Head of ILM, “We are seeing a real convergence in our creative approach used on films and in our immersive entertainment division ILMxLAB, and now we’re proud to be able to offer these ILM innovations in a way that’s suitable for streaming and television work to creatives around the world.”

ILM’s legacy in television dates back to the studio’s revolutionary and Emmy award-winning work for THE YOUNG INDIANA JONES CHRONICLES, which brought feature film quality effects to an episodic series for the first time.“We are extremely excited to be re-igniting ILM’s involvement in this market and to showcase the team’s expertise, unrivaled technology and production management globally.” adds VFX Supervisor Hayden Jones, “The television and streaming segments have grown exponentially in recent years and we are seeing substantial demand for high calibre visual effects that can be delivered on schedule and within budget, all of which lie at the core of our teams expertise and proven track record.”

ILM TV will offer producers and showrunners access to Industrial Light & Magic’s legendary VFX talent, infrastructure and technology combined with a fresh approach to visual effects, designed to suit the condensed production schedules and rapid turnaround times that episodic series and online streaming programs demand.

I am not planning on going to Star Wars Celebration mainly because of the toxic fanbase. I don’t want to go there to be bullied, whether it be verbally or physically.

Having attended near to half of them, I can assure you there’s no risk of that. The fans that attend are the kind that are there to celebrate the franchise in its entirety.

The toxic “fans” only exist online.

HALLOWEEN 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988)

Almost a soft reboot of the franchise. Decent entry with a fantastic ending.

HALLOWEEN 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989)

Wow. They somehow figured out how to completely waste all the potential generated by the ending of the last film. Absolutely the worst possible way to continue on from the last film. Not even Loomis could save this.
