Pardon me if I missed this discussion (I haven’t had time to read the entire thread yet) but for the cargo shuttle replacement is Ady using the Zeta-class cargo shuttle from Rogue One or the Sentinel-class shuttle from A New Hope Special edition? Just curious. Overly curious. But I can wait.

It will be a cross between the Tydirium and the Zeta class.

Taking a stand against toxic fandom (and other )

I think he’s subtly trolling. He’s too clever to come at people directly.

The Lucasfilm employee who posted a selfie while drinking from a mug that says “fanboy tears” on it is trolling, though.

Except that Andi wasn’t trolling anything. It was a picture that was posted just after TFA was released, now the anti-TLJ/ Disney brigade got hold of it, erased the date on the original tweet and claimed it was a recent pic of her trolling the anti-TLJ crowd. The fanboy tears thing was all about the death of Han Solo, nothing more.

There’s nothing wrong with the taking off shot. It’s not flipped at all. The planet is on the correct side. You can even see it should be on the right in the picture of the schematics table you posted and when the ships are heading from the planet to the death star.

And the planet wouldn’t be orange when viewing through a blue atmosphere

maybe it was a bluray frame in SSE 1.6?

Only missing LPP frames were replaced with the bluray.

I didn’t work on this section of the film for the SSE, but chances are good that the guy who graded it was consulting other post '85 sources during the color grading - like the GOUT and the Japanese Special Collection - and none of these references had this brightness so it was ‘corrected’ for the SSE.

Both the GOUT and the Blu-Ray have the extended brightness:

Just one more day to get your pilot audition videos in.

Thanks to all those that have submitted so far. The response has been pretty great. I will be contacting each and every person who submitted their video on Wednesday to let them know if they have been successful in getting one of the pilot roles or not.

In the mean time, while we are on a pilot theme, here is a short video showing the new colour grading of the beginning of the Battle of Yavin for the HD version of ANH:R. No FX have been done so far, this is just to give you a taste of how it will look compared to the official Blu-Ray.

With just 3 days left to go to submit your audition videos to snag a part in ROTJ:R, it seems interest is very slim. Just 2 videos submitted so far. 😦

I will extend the submission date by one week ( 2nd July) but that is as late as i can have it, with everything that needs to follow with the planning etc.

Oh, and please remember; this shoot is taking place in the Midlands, in the UK. So, if you have mentioned that you were interested in giving it a go, it would not be worth it if you live outside of the UK i’m afraid.

Do you want to be in ROTJ:R?

Well here’s your chance…

Auditions for the B-Wing pilots are now open and here is how you can enter…

Just make a short video of yourself acting out a scene ( doesn’t have to be a scene from the films) as a Rebel pilot during a battle. If you can interact with someone off camera, as if you are communicating via comlink, then even better, as this will be happening during shooting. Then upload the finished video to youtube ( make sure you set the video to “unlisted” for your privacy) and send the link to the video to:

starwarsrevisited@hotmail.co.uk. (Mark it “B-Wing Audition” )

Now the only criteria that is set for this is that you must be able to be available for a weekends filming in Wolverhampton, UK, during October ( will likely be the second weekend in October) . You may be needed for both days filming, just in case any pick up shots are needed after reviewing the days footage. I am looking for 4/ 5 pilots, but even if you don’t make it into the final selection for a pilot, you could still be asked to be a reserve that would be able to help out on the day . Age, sex etc does not matter.

Videos need to be submitted by Monday 25th June and successful applicants will be notified shortly after to begin arrangements.

Your video will not be shown in public ( on the extra features for ROTJ:R ) if you so wish ( so please add a note to the video link email to express this)

GOOD LUCK 😃

Should Poe and Rey meeting for the first time be removed ? As far as I remember they both were only 1 meter away for the other during the “map sequence” of TFA ? This scene in TLJ was… odd… as if Johnson didn’t even bother to watch TFA to be sure or to ask the LFL continuity committee…

She may have stood near him, but did they interact? No.

The Last Jedi: Official Review and Opinions Thread ** SPOILERS **
Time

You only have to look around places like facebook to see how the RT audience scores have been manipulated. Campaigns were started before the film even come out to give it negative reviews. Not just star wars pages either. 99% of the time, RT was the place they aimed for. After the film came out it got even worse. The amount of posts i had to delete on my page where people had posted links to these type of campaigns was astounding. They even added getting people to upvote the prequels on RT to make TLJ score look even worse. Just check out the ROTS reviews and see just how many new ones have suddenly appeared since TLJ.

There’s a real dark side to the Star Wars fandom and it came out in force after TLJ. The amount of the so called reviews and the negative comments/ attacks on social media that point their hatred for it towards the fact that there is more diversity, more women taking the lead roles, Disney is pandering to the SJW’s etc is disgusting.

The full size X-Wings have one stripe, the physical models have five, and the CG models have two. It’s a mess!

The original models all had different stripes and paintwork. The CG models all used Red 2, with just the nose stripe altered in one model. The SE really messed things up.

Only just got my internet back up and running and it looks like i have a bit of catching up to do, so i will reply to some of the suggestions etc as soon as possible

Ranking the Star Wars films

Animatronics like the ones created for the cristal wolves but never used in the finished movie and then in full CGI ?

The animatronic foxes are seen in the film. You couldn’t really expect them to use an practical creature for when they are walking/ running. The Canto Bight Fathiers are fully animatronic ( no cg enhancements) when in the stables and in close ups. They only used CG for the running ones.

Anyone else totally disregard Leia being Luke's sister?
Time

ToscheStation said:

Jim Smith said:

Yep, Georgie boy was definitely making things up as he went along. He never should’ve fired Gary Kurtz. Return of the Jedi was originally going to be about as dark as The Empire Strikes Back but George scrapped that idea much to my chagrin. Instead they went with the version of episode 6 that follows a lot of the same beats as episode 4 does. It’s also quite similar to episode 7. Too much repetition in this saga if ya ask me.

“Return of the Jedi was originally going to be about as dark as The Empire Strikes Back”

The way Lucas described “book three” back in Dec 1975 says otherwise:

“In the third book I want the story to be just about the soap opera of the Skywalker family, which ends with the destruction of the Empire.”

The third “book” they talks about was NOT ROTJ. This was to be the later episodes. Right up until ROTJ was in pre-production, ROTJ was not to be the final episode. The confrontation with the Emperor and defeat of the empire was to have been in those later episodes. Episode 6 WAS originally going to be darker. With Luke being separated from his friends at the end, going off to search for his sister (who was not Leia). When Lucas decided he didn’t want to make any more SW films, he brought those plans forward, dropped the search for the “other” Skywalker and made Leia the sister.

I didn't like The Force Awakens. Should I see The Last Jedi in theaters? (NO SPOILERS)
Time

Mjolnir Mark IV said:

I ended up seeing it in theater. To anyone else in my situation, I would say wait for video, or maybe even never see it.

Hopefully nobody takes that advice and makes their mind up for themselves. My daughters b/f hated TFA and didn’t want to go and see TLJ because of it. He was even more adamant not to go see it after the backlash he saw online after it was released. I finally convinced him to at least give it a try and to make his own mind up, ignoring what he has read. And now he is pissed. But not because he didn’t like the film. He loved it. But he was pissed because he left it too late and is now unable to go and see it again in the cinema because its ended its run and now has to wait until the Blu-Ray comes out. He is actually gobsmacked at the negative reactions the film got. But he did hate the Leia in space scene 😉

Should I put my name on my fan edit?

TV’s Frink said:

What does that even mean? If I had to guess I’d think you’re doing a TLJ edit with pirated material.

If I’m wrong you should probably explain what you meant. If I’m right the mods should close this thread.

That’s exactly what i was thinking. And this seemed to confirm that he’s doing a Last Jedi edit:

I got rid of the things people have been complaining most about, and the film no longer stops every 5 minutes for a misplaced joke. It’s too bad I can’t discuss the project in greater detail here, but… rules.

The Last Jedi: The De-Feminized Fanedit
Time

Ronster said:

The problem with this sort of analysis from people with an agenda is that if these people who claim something was not only white washed and also sexist. Why are they also not sticking up for the alien life in the film as well?

Probably because there are no aliens living in our society ( that we know of)

Ronster said:

The problem that these people with a political agenda fail to realise is the world was a different place in the 70’s and a country such as the USA did not have such a diverse population as it does now.

You are kidding, right? If not, then maybe you should stop basing your facts on TV and film of the era. America wasnt as white and male as you think it was.

Ronster said:

That was actually to highlight the how silly it is becoming. How far will it go… i do bring it back with some good points at the end.

No, you really didn’t. Not when you ended it with this rubbish…

Ronster said:

The people that moan about these sorts of things fail to understand that it is far better to have the best actor or actress and that is bankable in a measure of success than to simply diversify something for the sake of it… If American money is making the film why can’t they just have americans in it?

It’s not like South Korea or bollywood films feel the need to stuff random white people in to their films for the sake of it. Why don’t these same people campaign for equality in films made abroad? So why should American films pander to these out cry’s by political agenda groups when the peoole who claim to be fighting for equality are in no way calling any other film industries out in other countries…

So yeah that is the hypocracy of it all.

Yeh, it’s pretty obvious where all this is coming from. Very thinly veiled…

If you are refusing to see a film because there are people wanting more diversity, in a world where white males still hold all the cards, then the problem is not with their “agenda” but with yourself. The same type of rubbish you wrote above was spoken many years ago, by those complaining that there are too many people demanding certain rights to people of colour and how there are more people of colour appearing and starring in film and TV just because of their “agenda”. And the same that complained about women on TV no longer being just the “eye candy/ damsel in distress”

It’s the same box, wrapped in different paper.

Sir Ridley said:

I guess the point is that it was very very unlikely to find someone with the needed skill set by chance, especially since Maz made it sound like the Master Code Breaker was the only one who could do it.

Maz said that he was the only one she could trust to do it, not the only one that could do it. It was established that Maz herself could have done it, but she was unable, at the beginning of the transmission.

Vladius said:

I realize this might be an unpopular opinion here, but aside from the portrayal of Luke (which some people feel is just a matter of interpretation,) the non-Rey female characters were easily the worst parts of the film.
They have the most cringe-inducing dialogue:…“if you need to see the sun shining to know it’s there, you’ll never last through the night,” …

A line not even spoken in the film. If you are going to use quotes to prove a point about bad dialogue, at least get the quote right. That’s not even close.
