My friend growing up had AOTC on VHS in the US as well. Even Nathan Butler of “From the Star Wars Homevideo Library” can attest to its existence
As much as I would love more Skywalkers, the marketing at celebration was all about the 9 part saga.
I always thought about what it would be like in Lucasfilm just spent some time and allowed all the loose ends in Legends canon to be resolved. That way the Legends canon of comics and books would be “complete.” I just don’t think they’re going to.
Maybe they should do an animated series like Marvel is gonna do with their “What if?” Show and allow for Legends stuff like the Sword of the Jedi to be shown in some sort of filmic media
I feel like Disney made the mistake of talking about it in the first place. Their memo was so matter of fact. They never said they were decanonizing anything but just rebranding all that had come before.
There so many good old EU stories that I always took the “there’s truth in legends” idea as that it’s all canon unless the new 2014- stuff says otherwise. Almost like how the EU was anyways with Lucas
As much as I hope you’re wrong… I freaking love data sets like this
I can’t recall if Lucasfilm made an official declaration when they relabeled the EU as Legends, but maybe that information should have been brought up in a more casual way. Some fans clearly took that as an attack or something. Lucas only briefly talked about the EU in some interviews, and it came to producing the films and Clone Wars, he just did what he wanted regardless if it contradicted the EU. Maybe Lucasfilm should’ve taken the same approach, and let the fans figure it out on their own!
In the article it brings up Lucasfilms actual statement on the EU and the canon and all it talked about was that in the stories they are going to make the only Star Wars material they must stay 100% true too are the Films and Clone Wars movie and show. It never said they were decanonizing the EU, it just said that everything from 2014 forward would hold the same validity in canon as the films and everything else COULD be rewritten. Not that it would be, but that I could be.
And people’s heads don’t just float in space. I like the 2011 box because it conveys an idea about all six films in a single simple image
First: read this amazing article about the history of the EU’s canon status https://www.starwarsnewsnet.com/2019/08/guest-editorial-did-george-lucas-consider-the-expanded-universe-canon.html
Second: it’s been crazy to me how so many people blame Disney for bombing the EU and declaring it all “non-canon” even though Lucas never was beholden to the EU in all cases, some which the article highlights. A big problem with the EU was Lucas didn’t care and just let it run it’s course. He took from it what he liked and what he didn’t like he just ignored.
It is just so sad to me how people say the de-canonization of the EU was a sign of Disney’s mishandling of the license and if they just followed the books then everything would have been fine.
Stuff to ponder…
Anyone have thoughts on the apparent Death Star wielding star destroyers that the Sith troopers are apparently a part of. With red ties and everything. Seems dumb and I hope it’s not true
The idea of having ANOTHER Death Star just makes me sad. Even if it is like 5 small ones it’s still lazy. No more planet killing super weapons. Please…

Yes please do 😃
Hello everyone, I’m working on a box set idea for the Pirates of the Carribean movies. I have a vision in my head I just don’t have the photoshop skills to do it. Basically, I am modifying the Twilight Forever BR boxset found here: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Twilight-Forever-The-Complete-Saga-Blu-ray/28377460
Just for clarification, it’s not the one with the book, it instead is one with the folding disk book thing akin to the LOTR Extended DVD sets. I have all the art for the book part, what I really need is someone who would be willing to help with art for the hardcover part, if you know what I mean.
Please hit me up! I would love to chat!
Remember when this thread was about Rise of Skywalker?
I never had a problem with it. You see Vader unmasked and then a third guy shows up to the dinner party so naturally you can assume who it is. But honestly we might just wanna back off of this guy there’s no reasoning with him
So just got out of Lion King and though the film has flaws there’s one major thing that I want to change. Right after Simba communes with his father the cookie cutter lame Bey song “Spirit” plays when it clearly should have been “He Lives In You” from the broadway show. Worst part of the movie in terms of content.
Another problem with the film is the Lions (or really any of the animals) have facial emotions…
I honestly don’t understand why Lucas never directed animated movies. Seems like it would have been a bit more fitting.
I mean he did. Strange Magic? The film that Disney kinda buried. It’s a shame really I wish it had a Blu-Ray release
Disney releases some of their Disney Channel stuff on DVD only like the Descendent films and it’s really annoying
Also Lucas’s Strange Magic was DVD only
So I read through the thread and I didn’t see if you were switching out the ending where Scott ends up with Knives? Is that your plan or just an different ending all together
Star Trek Beyond
HTTYD The Hidden World
Back to the future 3
Logan (3rd in wolverine trilogy)
Riiiiight… that line slipped my mind. Maybe they’re a hostile force to the First Order. Three factions? First Order led by Kylo, Resistance led by Leia, and the Sith led by Palpatine. Kylo and Rey team up to fight Palps. Hence Kylo might be redeemed in the eyes of the people but not the eyes of our main characters. A reversal of what happened to Vader where in the eyes of the characters he was redeemed but the galaxy still hated him for his atrocities. That would be interesting.
I remember Ben not being a Sith but I don’t remember anything that explicitly said the Sith were extinct. Maybe it’s a case of Ben wanting to use the name “Sith” to bring a Return of the Sith.
The red troopers are officially called Sith Troopers and I’m really excited by that
Honestly I just thought he was a hack trying to make a sale
So there’s this guy who is selling DVDs claiming that he met a guy from LA who had a copy of the original film reels for the Special and scanned them to sell a DVD.
He’s also boasting he’s the only one who has the film and that you won’t be able to find it on “fan sites” which made me instantly question his credibility because it’s on YouTube in its entirety. But I was wondering if anyone knew of any film reel.
Also if curious he was selling it for $25
