I would actually rather Gareth Edwards oversee a release! But i think he is out really, pushed out. But at least on the same page and normal response from him.

I’ve been VERY satisfied with the Star Wars Blu-Rays Disney have been putting out. In terms of picture and sound quality, they’ve been excellent thus far.

The Phantom Menace was shot on 35MM so that can be true 4K, however the other two prequels were shot digitally and not even at 1080p

So by trying to appear technologically innovative Lucas shot AotC and RotS on formats that can’t meet today’s high resolution standards, but the first one from 1977 can? That’s hilarious.

AotC and RotS are the worst two IMO anyway.

Well, back in 1977, nobody knew you could source 4K resolution footage out of 35MM film stock.

I know this is not necessarily about 4K resto on Star Wars, but it may be very telling nonetheless; The Last Jedi is being released in 4K steelbook by Best Buy. I don’t know what the international release will consist of, but here is the purchase link for info:

4K Best Buy link

Well I knew about this since the Pre-Order went live on Zavvi about two or so weeks ago

Where is 4K77 ?!

Behind 4K THX 1138.

I want a 4K version of THX but it’ll probably be the 2004 Director’s Cut.
Maybe I should trash pick for a 35MM print of it

That’s what I’m saying; someone should try to salvage THX 1138 while it’s still possible.

I mean, someone scanned a 16MM black and white print of it, of all prints.

So someone’s selling Ady’s Empire Revisited. Just thought I’d share it here seeing as how it’s one of the first things to come up in Ebay’s VHS Tapes section.

Lmao his reasoning “I’m selling a case and artwork and the DVD is a bonus therefore I think I’m avoiding legal trouble”

Interesting that this Tweet uses a pre-2004 version of the binary sunset. Judging from the lighting of the closeup of the two suns this looks like it’s from the ‘97 SE.

That’s just a fanpage.

And???

It means the Tweet doesn’t matter and has no value in a discussion about Disney and any possible release of Star Wars they may put out

The objective reality is that Rogue One was redone and the directors of episode 9 and the Han Solo spinoff film were fired for making something Disney didn’t like

Disney did not make those decisions.

And the implication here, in regards to what this means for the story of TLJ, is pretty absurd, no? That Disney forced Rian to put in an anti-OOT subtext? This is getting to chemtrails levels.

You miss the point completely. It’s not an anti-OOT message. With TLJ Disney has made it clear, that it’s out with the old and in with the new. In that climate an OOT release seems less likely than ever before.

There’s a significant split in the fanbase, now that TLJ has been seen by the fans. No way are they going to solely bank on new films that many have zero interest in.

Disney is gonna exploit all of Star Wars for what it’s worth. I don’t think they’ll disregard the OT and it’s multiple cuts

Yes, a film written and directed by a man who literally called the Special Editions the “cartoon versions” was definitely made with a veiled anti-OOT message.

Can’t we keep the TLJ bitching confined to the TLJ threads?

Sadly, his opinion matters not.

Especially since we know Disney will have you re write your film or have you fired if you deviate too far from what they expect out of you as a director
