I highly doubt these leaks are going to be true at all, they just sound so… fan-ficky
Okay so, since the original six film saga are all never before seen masters they have the 20th century’s fox fanfare with the new silver Lucasfilm logo
Also, the digital truncated Lucasfilm fanfare was never released in a physical form.
Interestingly, the digital versions are slowly being replaced with the brand new masters so the truncated digital fanfare is being wiped from history.
Duel of the fates in the new tv spot got me so pumped! Each new second of footage takes away any doubts I have about this movie
I mean you could just assume he uses Qui-Gon’s crystal. So that’ll work for my viewing pleasure where you’ll have a version of Episode 2 with an Obi green saber and Episode 3 with an Obi blue saber
I really really like this. A good idea would be replacing obi-wans lightsaber in AOTC with Qui-Gons green saber until he loses it in Geonosis
“I hate it when he does that”
“Oh, it’s you”
“Haven’t you noticed the SHIELDS are still UP”
“They fly now!”
New poster from Germany (I think). It looks painted which looks really pretty!
Also of note, the Falcon has its rectangular dish instead of the circular ones seen in the trailers.
Adding Chinese banner art.
I’m going to change my prediction to 300mil opening, 800mil domestic, and 1.7 billion worldwide
Pan and scan?
No different than abandoned 747s, super tankers, or mining trucks here on Earth. Wherever they are in the world and whoever may have used them, they look the same.
A lot different since Earth is just one planet and the galaxy has probably millions of planets with even more vehicles.
I mean, the way people jump from planet to planet all the time, it really feels like a planet is just a different continent.
My dislike of one and apathy towards the other comes from the films internal consistency.
Imagine watching ESB for the first time. It does not matter which version you watch, all you know is that this is a brand new character and it’s consistent in that film. When you switch over to return of the Jedi and the actor changes (if you watch the theatrical version) then you just assume stuff happened behind the scenes and this is now the Emperor.
The problem with ROTJ is that Hayden at the end breaks the films internal consistency. I don’t know over any other film (besides that movie for Heath Leger after he died) that had multiple actors embody the same character. If you’re a first time viewer of ROTJ and it’s the first Star Wars movie you’ve seen ever then it’ll be really odd to see a brand new, never before seen, actor portraying… well you can’t even be sure if you have no prior knowledge to bass it off of. That is why the replacement of Sebastian Shaw is so much more reviled then the replacement of the Emperor.
Has anyone heard anything about there being physical releases of the Disney+ Star Wars content?
Empire of Dreams is different. I don’t have a comprehensive list but the one example I know of for sure is that the Anthony Daniels is talking about George waddling during the filming of ROTJ and they walk up to Jabba’s palace they replaced the original shot with the 2011 shot with the expanded door.
One other obvious change is when they talk about Williams recording the music for ANH they replaced the original shots with the SE shots. It seems whenever they show clips from the movie it’s all the 2011 master
I just did a brief glance at ROTS on Mustafar and even the colors there are different. I wonder if every single film has a new color grading to it. It’s almost like someone took the brightness down and then boosted the contrast during the Obi/Ani fight.
If these were indeed the rescanned’s that Lucas commissioned to be used for his 3D versions than perhaps the Greedo line is a Lucas change that just never made it to the public until now.
Jedit: The colors on the Death Star do look amazing, I never thought we would see a new version of the film though, it’s astounding to me.
The colors look closer to the theatrical, yet its still the 2011 SE changes. It’s so weird to look at. It’s almost like the rescanned the prints they have. It just looks so odd. Also the greedo addition… like WHY?
It’s new canon. Ahsoka novel and even the Darth Vader:Lords of the Sith comic. Specifically dealing with Sith lightsabers. In old EU red lightsabers were specifically non-organic and had no force sensitivity. In the new canon all crystals have organic properties and the Sith have to force their will on their crystal, making it “bleed.”
This is why Kylo’s blade is so interesting. My assumption is he went to “bleed” his original crystal but since he himself is conflicted inside the bleeding process did not take and the crystal cracked. Hence the need for the side vents. They were not intentional design decisions but a result of using his cracked crystal.
I need to learn how to edit so I can put as many of the finished scenes (repetitive or not) in one cut.
All the Sequel Trilogy posters together.
Funny how the Skywalker lightsaber is always pointing down
Since Pablo Hidalgo has confirmed that Captain Rex from the Clone Wars and Rebels was on Endor with General Solo’s strike team I wonder if he ever spoke to Luke about being commander of the clone army under Anakin.
I was watching ROTJ last night and the scene where Luke and Leia have their whole sibling talk and thought it would be so cool to see Luke walk off and Captain Rex stop him even for a brief moment to acknowledge that he was Anakin’s commander and that having once fought with the great General Skywalker he now is proud to fight alongside the Son of the great General.
My prediction is an opening of 230 million
A domestic gross of 600 million
And a worldwide gross of 1.2 billion
On that topic, I’ve seen every Disney Star Wars movie at a specific theater on opening night and now pretty much EVERY showing is sold out… I even called asking if they’d get more showings and they said that theyre trying to but I’m so sad and pissed right now that I missed getting tickets… I’m an emotional wreck
Is that the Ghost to the right of the frame? It’s that or just a normal VCX100
In the marvel comics Vader and Luke meet for like a minute and Vader sees the lightsaber, knows it’s his, and then sends some bounty hunters to figure out who the kid is. So in the new canon Vader knows who Luke is.
That being said it works with both versions of Empire but more so with the OUT.
In the OUT Vader just knows and everything moves on as normal.
In the SE versions we would just have to assume that Vader found out, kept it from Palpatine, and then just played dumb when Palps told him about Luke.
