Proof of Lucas’ revisionism in Rinzler’s making-of book?
Time

^ Nice find RogueLeader 😃
 

The General Star Wars Discussion Index Thread (in the ‘Archival / Historical discussions’ section) has a few threads featured on Lucas’ revisionism / re-writing of history / some of the contradictions or maybe mis-remembering events… depending on your point of view 😉

I’m not sure if midichlorians are mentioned specifically in there - though seems likely they would be (somewhere)…
 

There are a few OT•com threads on some of Rinzler’s books (and also zombie84’s ‘Secret History of Star Wars’ book) which may feature the topic too?:-

The Secret History of Star Wars : ‘Now Available In Print’ thread : AudioBook thread

Making of Star Wars (New Book) Discussion

Making of Empire Strikes Back (the book) thread : Heilemann’s thread on the MoESB book

Making of Return of the Jedi (the book) Thread

Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy (the book)

 

Anyone know of a site or blog, book or detailed article (or thread or post), cataloging in detail the subject of Lucas’ revisionism / re-writing of history / some of the contradictions or maybe mis-remembering events?

It’d make for an intriguing read - and a welcome addition on here given many of the changes to the history of Star Wars films over the years - given the somewhat contradictory reasons as to why from George Lucas himself…

Dark Legacy - an Unofficial Star Wars Story by Anthony Pietromonaco’…

More info at https://www.starwarsdarklegacy.com/

An engaging watch, with references to Sith thinking and culture, and also some top choreography - along with emotion and an unpredictability to the fight scenes. Very well done overall - a quality production; I hope they do more releases in the future.

I also think veering off too much and you have a SW indie film that a lot fewer people will want to see.

But would probably be infinitely more interesting. I’m probably in the minority here, but I would love to see a Star Wars story done on a smaller scale. You don’t need $200 million to make a good Star Wars movie.

I’d like to see more stories on a smaller scale - a short series of one-off specials - maybe the coming Disney+ service will make this more of a possibility…

(and it’s not like Disney or Lucasfilm are amatuers at maximising revenues (blu ray sales, tv rights, toys, books & comics, merchandise etc - and of course… ‘growing the brand’ 😉)

^ Disappointing that - though at least it gives a chance to wrap up with a deserved end to the series.

Games you want to see remade
Time

Desperate Housewives, eh? You surprise me every day paja 😃

Shadows Of The Empire would be great.
 

GoldenEye (N64) - it’ll likely never happen due to the licensing complications involved - but an up-to date release of that would be superb (with additional levels and multiplayer options & possibilities).

(and much kudos to the people who made ‘Goldeneye X’ and ‘GoldenEye Source’ etc)

M0bi0us0ne - please try following HanDuet’s The Ultimate Introductory Guide again, and if you’re still having issues then give him a heads-up - see the Feedback section in his Guide. (Countless people have - and will - follow this guide to obtain the Despecialized Editions, so if there is an issue it’s best to let the relevant people know).

You may wish to consider trying solkap’s thread here, for an alternative way of obtaining the Despecialized Editions:-

Rubbing people up the wrong way - who are in a position to help you - probably won’t do you many favours on here.
 

Good luck with it.
 

Thanks for the help oojason!!!
Unfortunately I get error 403 on the link you posted

Likely a glitch in the matrix 😉 I’ve edited the original link so hope it now works - if not, try this one mate:-

A Star Wars Is Born – “Shallow” Parody’…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-Sv6fu-udU (by Nerdist)

‘We’re taking this SHIP to a whole new level in a galaxy far, far away. When the characters of Star Wars meet the emotional medley of “Shallow” from “A Star is Born” we get a glimpse at a star-crossed romance between two rivals. Sit back, grab an ice cold glass of green milk, and enjoy the newest Nerdist Presents music video parody. From the team that brought you “That Spidey Life” and “Young King”.’
 

^ Quite funny in places 😃

How we made the effects on Solo: A Star Wars Story’…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/technology-47212262/how-we-made-the-effects-on-solo-a-star-wars-story

'The film Solo: A Star Wars Story has been Oscar nominated in the best visual effects category.

Visual effects supervisor Julian Foddy of ILM London spoke to Al Moloney about some of the challenges the company faced in helping to make the film.’
 

^ Quite in interesting video on how they achieved certain elements of the film (with a couple of cool surprises in there) - and that despite the director of the film changing late on… the release date for Solo remained the same.
