Episode IX - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

https://www.starwarsnewsnet.com/2018/12/episode-ix-rumors-timeline.html

I hope this isn’t true. Specifically the idea that Rey would just put the Skywalker lightsaber back together… it just seems like a cop out to the toxic side of the fandom.

Also Kylo just reconstructing his helmet. It’s just moving the story backwards instead of forwards…

Thoughts?

The Original Radical Redux Ideas Thread
Time

I recall in one of the Star Wars books that there is an untouched portion of Coruscant. Endor could be repurposed as the untouched small part on Endor, where the shield generator would be hidden.

It makes sense for the Empire to hide their super important shield generator in a forested part of the planet where people don’t live or go to. I know the untouched part of coruscant was actually deforested before the OT but you would only know that if you read Catalyst.

So, perhaps the Death Star 2 is being built and they discovered this and decide the only way to survive is to freaking zerg rush the capital in a last ditch effort to win because if they finish the Death Star 2 then they believe that the war would essentially be over. I like the idea of putting the Luke-Vader fight being put on the same planet as the Rebels heading for the shield generator. And then instead of Luke pulling Vader out of the DS2 he’s trying to get out of the capital before the DS2 pieces fall onto the capital.

TFA: A Gentle Restructure
Time

As far as the V1 vs V2 debate, I for one am more inclined to the V1 version since it felt like the Resistance absolutely failed and that their destruction of SKB was out of revenge. Almost like a “Remember the Alamo” type of situation.

Having SKB just immediately start targeting the Resistance base almost makes out the First Order to be too good at what they do. I like the idea of them being almost like children trying to take each others toys away. SKB destroys the Republic, and then the Resistance destroys SKB out of spite and revenge.

Just my 2 cents

STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 <strong>REVISITED</strong> ADYWAN *<em>720p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION</em>
Time

I just had this thought when I was watching ANH:R last night. I understand that you are going to be changing some things between the current form of ANH:R and what will become ANH:R HD. Now what follows isn’t supposed to be inflammatory it was just a thought that I found interesting.

Would you consider the fact that you are tweaking with your version of ANH:R to be almost akin to the way Lucas tweaked with the standard ANH. We’re coming upon the same dilemma where the original ANH:R will not be available in an HD format, just like the OUT is not available in HD formats. You changed your mind about some decisions that were made and want this new HD version to be the definitive version of the films, yet there are people (like me) that would just like to see the current ANH:R but in HD.

I’m not sure this equates completely, but I feel like you could understand Lucas’s mindset on why the Special Editions exist in the first place. I also recall a popular argument for why the Special Editions are bad is because they supersede the Original Versions. That same thing is now going to happen with ANH:R. I’m not trying to be accusatory, I just thought this was something as a community that we could discuss.

Star Wars Resistance
Time

Just finished watching the first episode. Overall I liked it

The Animation: I agree with DominicCobb in that there were moments where it looked really cool and then there were moments that it just looked like crap. However, while we’re talking about the visuals, it was really cool seeing some classic Star Wars creatures again.

The Story: For me, the coolest things were at the very beginning and the very end. I understand that we’re setting up the characters, but it honestly felt like this episode had no meat to it. Pretty much like your first day at school where you say your name and what you did last summer. Yet finally actually seeing the New Republic military in any capacity made me really happy.

I guess we shall see where it goes.

Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **
Time

There are so many retailer exclusives now that its crazy what is and isn’t left out of different releases.

For Disney movies since Black Panther Wal-Mart has not had digital codes. Why? I couldn’t tell you. This is the first time it has affected a Star Wars release. It is kind of stupid how the Wal-Mart “exclusive” is the normal one without a digital code.

If you want a Blu-ray-Dvd-Digital you have to go through Disney Movie Club, which is again silly.

Target has its exclusive packaging since Rogue One with the bigger boxes akin to the LOTR DVD Extended Editions. This release this time around is 4K-BR-Digital. They are really cool but for sake of consistency I go with the next option.

Best-Buy is the steelbook store which is 4k-BR-Digital this time around. For TLJ they had two waves of steelbooks for BR-DVD-DIgital or 4K-BR-Digital, this time theres only one choice. All the Star Wras movies I have are in steelbook form because I like them to match.

The standard releases are BR-Digital, 4K-BR-Digital, or DVD ONLY. These can be found almost anywhere, I think even certain Wal-Marts… (WalMart needs to get their crap together)

These are all the US releases of Solo that I am aware of.

Blu-Ray covers based on Comic Art
Time

My first attempt at creating my own art. I am doing modified versions of Phildesfr’s cover art as I learn how to use the tools set before me. I’ve never done anything like this before so this is the first attempt at a rough idea.

The reason I started this is I’m working on my own set of Blu-Ray covers for Hal 9000’s Prequel Trilogy and Sequel Trilogy edits, as well as matching those with Adywan’s Revisited edits.

These are just rough ideas. In the future, I’m going to do custom back instead of just lifting Phildesfr’s wholesale. I also want to do disk art and slipcovers. But this is a start.

Ranking the Star Wars films

I’m glad you finally mentioned that because it’s not obvious from your list.

The only Star Wars movie I don’t have a strong connection to is ATOC. But my connection to each increases as the list goes up. Just because I don’t have an emotional connection to ANH doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy it as the amazing film it is.

Ranking the Star Wars films
Time

Wow, mind explaining your ranking? Legitimately interested if you’d like to share.
Is TPM #1 due to the nostalgic feeling you get from it? Not saying that’s a bad thing, it just makes me curious as the the literal opposite-ending of AOTC if that’s the case. Hope I’m not being presumptious.

Yeah i can explain.

TPM came out when I was around 4. Not only was it the movie though, it was the PlayStation games and the pod racing game and all of that gets wrapped up in my feeling of it as a film whenever I watch it. I know it’s not great but nothing really matches how it makes me feel.

ATOC however wasn’t able to be saved by the marketing machine. I still have fond memories of it but it can’t save how boring it can sometimes be.

As for ANH being 8, well. Like said before the list was not based on the quality of the films just how they make me feel. I really like ANH (obviously) yet I have the least emotional attachment to it as the others.

I hope this makes sense.
