It worries me that this is getting so much publicity.  What if Disney/LFL shut this down?

This was posted in the group roughly 15 hours ago.

THX was sold off as part of LucasFilm, right? If so, it seems Disney is being uncharacteristically cool about this.

Yeah, that's pretty weird. What reason could they have? Free publicity for that new SW movie? lol

The Ultimate Showdown

Luke loses all three battles.

And why would they need to be labelled (Prime)? Did I miss something? Is the JJ Star Wars going to be a reboot as well?

You probably just missed tons of fanfiction:

I've never read it, and, frankly, I don't feel like I'm missing out:

The story deals with the return of the villainous Palpatine, having successfully cheated death by becoming a spirit entity that is "reincarnated" through cloning technology. Other themes include Luke Skywalker temporarily succumbing to the Dark Side of the Force, the official return of Boba Fett (who had seemingly died after being swallowed by the Sarlacc in Return of the Jedi), and the first appearance of Princess Leia and Han Solo's son, Anakin Solo.

2 ) Rebel briefing scene where Lando announces to Han that that he's a general. Lots of improvised banter between Ford and Williams before they go through the actual dialogue from the script.


God I hope this is in high quality/possible to be ripped.

You can stop hoping. Just look at the size of these ebooks:

ANH: 358125 KB

ESB: 385139 KB

ROTJ: 324759 KB

We're talking embedded video here. I bet you can rip it and it'll probably end up on youtube soon, but it won't be of much use for anything else. Still excited to see it, though.

There was a 6 hour cut of the Phantom Menace

OK, I though the claim of a 4 hour cut of Blade Runner was insane! I knew there were a lot of cut scenes for TPM, but not 6 hours worth! 

Why is it insane? A rough assembly cut would easily clock around 4h and seeing as Scott tended to shoot quite a bit of footage I'm actually surprised it wasn't longer (as a matter of fact there are reports that even this cut had some missing scenes). Basically, the approach was to cobble together some footage in order to create a rough structure and to work from there. It's probably the most sane approach to dealing with truckloads of film there is.

And since we're already talking about this, I'd kill to see this cut of Blade Runner and (getting back on topic) I'd kill not to be forced to sit through 6h of a TPM.

Project Threepio (Star Wars OOT subtitles)

Long time lurker, first time poster etc.

These forums have rendered me speechless ever since I first came across them a couple of years ago and I don't really know where to begin thanking you people for all the dedication and hard work you've put into dozens of incredible projects... So I guess I'll start here since it was Project Threepio that finally managed to convince me to register. Thanks, CatBus :)
