George Lucas: Star Wars Creator, Unreliable Narrator & Time Travelling Revisionist...
Time

Don’t know if this was mentioned but I even showed my family this one recently. George talks about the first time the studio saw the first Star Wars. In 1997 he says they loved it. In his 2015 interview with Charlie Rose he says they hated it.

Question about the 1982 Rental VHS of Star Wars
Time

Hello. Quick question. There’s two versions of the 1982 rental copy of Star Wars on MySpleen but they both have different Fox logos. One has the theatrical logo but with the theme re-recorded, the other the plastered logo but also with the re-recorded version. Which version is accurate to the original rental VHS or were there copies of that release floating around with both logos???

George Lucas' Special Edition plans

A New Hope goes back to The Art of Star Wars which was published in November of 1979. But no it was never the title or subtitle of the real shooting script. It was the Adventures of Luke Starkiller as taken from the Journal of the Whills. Saga I. Star Wars. Shortened to Star Wars and there was no Episode IV at all period until 1979. The film itself wasn’t recut to episode IV until 1981.

According to a quote from Mark Hamill the film was at least acknowledged as Episode IV during production.

Complete Comparison of Special Edition Visual Changes
Time

Not a Special Edition change but something caught my attention tonight. Ive recently been doing some VHS digitizing and recently digitized my 1995 ‘Faces’ set and was watching a DVD I did of the ESB tape and I noticed something. At one point during the TIE Fighter/Falcon chase in the asteroid field I noticed that for a brief point of the chase the fighters laser blasts were blue. I thought 'weren’t those supposed to be green??". I went and checked a DVD I burnt of my 1992 VHS and sure enough green laser blasts. I then thought “maybe this was a change for the 1993/‘GOUT’ master??” since the ‘Faces’ set uses those masters. Went and checked my GOUT DVD and believe it or not GREEN laser blasts. So I thought “huh so for the VHS master they changed them to blue?? Strange but interesting.”

For comparison here’s some shots from the GOUT.

And here’s the VHS.

Anyways just found this interesting. I can’t comment on the Laserdisc versions since I dont own them nor have a player for them. I do have the Widescreen ‘Faces’ set but its at my other place. Maybe one of these days I’ll check that set too.

I’m supriced no one has linked this one yet, this is one of my favorite original trilogy trailers.

This is the trailer for the 1985 re-release of Return of the Jedi.

I can’t find it at the moment but I know there’s a version of this same trailer but with a different narrator. I think it may have been on the Laserdisc.

Found it. It’s in this video. Skip to 14:34.

The Original Trilogy <strong>box set releases</strong> on home video tape: 1988 to 2000…
Time

Something to note for Collectors out there. There’s three variations in terms of content of the 1992 US Fullscreen VHS Trilogy. I’m not talking packaging I’m talking what’s on the tapes.

Version 1- Same as the 1990 releases but the CBS/FOX Video logo is replaced by a static Fox Video logo that shimmers gold. The “CBS/FOX Video Collectors Preview” screen has also been changed accordingly along with updated narration. Everything else that follows matches the 1990 releases.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BFMfovnc9wc

Version 2- Same as version 1 but the Fox Video logo has been changed to the logo that starts from the side and pans around to show the logo in view (similar to the 1994 20th Century Fox logo). Everything else that follows matches version 1.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2wEr6dWiTbU

Version 3- Opens with same logo as version 2 but afterwards goes right to the movie. No collectors preview or text screens. Just Fox Video logo, movie, and FBI Warning afterwards.

Info: Star Wars Micro Machines Packaging Artworks
Time

Hello. Anyone know who the artist was who did the artworks for the Micro Machine playsets back in the ‘90s?? I used to collect those sets and part of what I used to love about them as well as the playsets themselves was the cool artwork done for the front of the packaging.

Additionally anyone have any of those artworks available as prints??? It’d be nice to see them without being cluttered with text and logos. Only ones I’ve found are these.
