Well, I thought that trailer looked pretty awesome. I’m excited for this now.
I was lucky enough to meet Peter and see him many times at conventions and events here in the UK.
RIP Peter mate.
In Star Wars, I always wonder what General Dodonna is saying when Luke starts talking in the Rebel briefing.
You can’t make it out as Luke is talking over the top of him.
I think In the novel he mentions different colour squadrons covering for each other.
Odeon Leicester Square
It certainly is. I am over the moon with this picture.
In my opening post on this thread I have a picture of the Odeon Guildford UK where I saw all the original Trilogy.
Here now is a picture of the cinema actually showing Return Of The Jedi.
I remember standing looking at those posters. Excellent.
Just read this book.
The Star Wars Phenomenon in Britain: The Blockbuster Impact and the Galaxy of Merchandise, 1977-1983
Great book. A ton of memories of what it was like for us Brits waiting for Star Wars to be released over here in the UK.
Incudes release dates for London cinemas and general releases.
Also memorabilia that was released exclusive to the UK and behind the scenes of Palitoy and Marvel comics UK.
Magazine, tv shows and UK TV air dates and more.
Having a look back through The Art Of The Empire Strikes Back book. It mentioned that medical droid 2-1B has a human brain. Freaky.
That concept has been written out of Star Wars history.
Only Last Jedi figures I have are 6" Black Series Rey Jedi Training and a 3.75" Paige (Resistance Gunner).
There was a scene in the Falcon where L3-37 has a bit of malfunction and hits herself on the side of the head to start up again. As her data is now in and part of the falcon, could this now be seen later in The Empire Strikes Back when Han hits the wall of the cockpit to re-start the Falcon up?
Just a thought.
Thought I would dig out the Star Wars Holiday Special as I had not seen it through in years.
Blimey! That was a real test of endurance. Even worse than I remembered.
The best thing about this recent viewing was the Cantina scene. I forgot all about the Mos Eisley creatures from the film appearing. It was good to see the costumes and masks of background aliens in more detail than the film.
I would have been happy if the only time you saw Tarkin was in the reflection on the glass looking out. How you first see him.
^ Wow, that’s fantastic. I actually came up in goose bumps watching that !

“I came as fast as I could”

When he tossed the lightsaber over his shoulder, it was shocking but at the same time, exactly what I figured was going to happen.
Yes, it’s such a shame that both times I have seen the film, the audience laughed.
I want to see the film just by myself now with no unnecessary audience participation.

No idea if the stories have been coloured. Like you I will wait until the softcover version and a cheaper price.
The heart breaking thing for me is that I had all the Star Wars Weekly issues.
Only the movie adaptations of Star Wars and Empire issues still remain in my collection.
The rest are lost to time.
You may want to check this out. Only hardcover at the moment.
I thought you might like these,
In case anyone missed them before Christmas in the UK, two programmes from BBC4 are now on i player

I had a never ending supply of Grand Moff Tarkin discs.
My binder is in the dusty Jedi Archives somewhere as well !
Yeah, I enjoyed the film the first time. I really enjoyed the film the second time.
Maybe because I could relax more, take in what was going on as I knew what was coming.
Yes, I have that set. There were only four discs from the SE so that was good.
A couple of discs eluded me so I had to send away to a classified ad to get them.
The easiest way to complete the set was by buying a multi pack of crisps as they used to chuck about five discs in the bottom of the pack.
Here’s that frame I was talking about.
Unfortunately, it’s in an unreadable script, so I guess we’ll never know what incredibly dirty things R2 is saying.
Ahhh, my favorite pic of the car tape deck (left side). 😄
Awesome. I had never noticed that before. You can even see the radio wavebands, ha ha.
To clarify, I’ve no problem with the simple existence of the “A Star Wars Story” suffix. Its use here with a solo word just kind of blends wrong to me.
I hear you. I think the same thing.
Han Solo A Star Wars Story flows better.
I’m booked for the midnight showing on the 14th here in the UK.
