George's museum - the 'Lucas Museum of Narrative Art' (in LA, set to open in 2022)
Time

The ‘Lucas Museum of Narrative Art’ is scheduled to open in 2022, and from the Vanity Fair article below, seems there were a few issues on a location before settling on LA - and breaking ground in 2018.
 

There will be a ‘Star Wars exhibit’ at the museum - though it may likely have a large empty space for where the unaltered theatrical version of the Original Trilogy films were for 20 years… (before they stopped existing in George’s eyes) - next to the various incarnations of the Special Editions which replaced them?

Such a space likely won’t be in the ‘Film Preservation’ section on the museum - as to not confuse anyone questioning why Lucas sits on the boards of a few film preservation groups; yet won’t preserve or release the classic original version of his own three films which made Star Wars what it is (and also underpins much of his own work since).
 

Having said that, it does look a cool building design 😃 (more images of it can be found in the articles below) and will hopefully feature some cool and rarely seen ‘bits and pieces’ from the various films and projects he has been involved with.
 

A few articles on the ‘Lucas Museum of Narrative Art’:-

^ happy as ever 😉 (did George lose a bet and is now no longer allowed to smile for photographs?)

 

apologies mods if there is already a thread on the George’s museum? I couldn’t find one earlier, but if there is please delete or merge this if possible? TIA.

An update on the Star Wars Hotel, aka ‘StarWars: Galactic Starcruiser’:-
 

“Just Announced: Reservations for #StarWars: Galactic Starcruiser - the new multi-day vacation experience coming to Walt Disney World Resort - will open later this year!”

I’m kinda interested to see how this plays out, how successful it will be. It looks freakin’ gorgeous, though likely to be way out of my price limit!

Star Trek: Picard - discussion thread - * <strong>SPOILERS</strong> *
Time

I am absolutely loving the series so far - and agree with Tobar & Fated.

Seems like things are stepping up for Picard too, am curious to see how the show handles that as it has been very well paced so far, and taken the time to explain the events of the galaxy!
 

I am hoping for some mention of The Dominion War or Deep Space Nine - it does seem that the Romulans went back to ‘being the enemy’ after fighting alongside the Federation against the Dominion.

Maybe they found out that…

all along? 😉

Seems a long time away - but eagerly looking forward to it.

I hope Rogue Leader does a similar spoiler thread for season two!

(and that we get some news on a blu ray release for season one)

The random <strong>YouTube / Vimeo etc video finds</strong> thread for the Original Trilogy
Time

This is from 2014, on the rumor of a possible release of the unaltered theatrical versions Original Trilogy films - is a little outdated given the ownership issues - but still features some relevant information and viewpoints…
 

Unaltered Theatrical Version of Original Trilogy Coming to Blu-Ray (Rumour)’:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRwjQDw2_8s - at the Star Wars News and Views youtube channel. (2014. 18 minutes long)
 

About:-

“Reports state that the original, unaltered theatrical versions of Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi are in the works. I give some background on the suppression of the original trilogy, it’s history, the complications of such a release, and my thoughts on this rumour.”
 

I really hope zombie84 (and his colleague at Star Wars News and Views) does more of these type of videos - or turns some of the content from his awesome Save Star Wars & The Secret History Of Star Wars websites, and also from his fantastically comprehensive book The Secret History Of Star Wars, onto a video format.

And maybe updates both his tremendous websites and unrivaled book as well 😃

My suggestion to Disney: noir crime series in Coruscant underworld
Time

Dr. Krogshöj - oojason’s post in Tobar’s Star Wars: Underworld (Live Action Series) thread could be right up your street; not only is there now a 10 minute behind the scenes video of footage from the ‘Star Wars: Underworld’ live action tv series, but also a downloadable batch of documents on the show too 😃

Even a two-time Star Wars director has to go to Harmy’s Depsecialized Editions when it comes to watching the unaltered theatrical versions of the Original Trilogy films…

Interesting how the ROTJ logo very obviously doesn’t fit with the two prior films’ vintage logo designs.

I am with you ATMachine, and much prefer the boxier ROTJ alternatives, which match the other logos better:

or

^ even without the box lines itself?
