<strong>The Book Of Boba Fett</strong> (live action series) - a general discussion thread - * <strong>SPOILERS</strong> *
Time

An intriguing article from the New York Times…

Boba Fett, Intergalactic Man of Mystery’:-

How did this fearsome “Star Wars” bounty hunter go from a peripheral player to the star of “The Book of Boba Fett”? He used the support of fans — and a little brute force.

Holiday Special - &quot;The Story of the Faithful Wookiee&quot; - dubbed in Spanish (Released)
Time

Hi MasterKal,

There are a few versions of “The Story of the Faithful Wookiee” still up up on YouTube - so may be worth posting it on there too.

Or on other similar video sites such as dailymotion, vimeo, veoh, utreon, or metacafe etc.

It may also be worth putting it on a GoogleDrive or on Mega too.
 

Good luck with it, mate.

 

Edit: I think I misunderstood your post - sorry MasterKal. The Star Wars Preservation forum is a good place for this 👍

Original Star Wars logo font?
Time

I think it is Dan Perri’s own custom work. There is a little more on it, with some ideas on what the font may consist of, in the link below:-

There may also be some more additional info on it in the ‘Star Wars font, crawl & logo information’ category of the An Index & Help Thread for Case Covers, Disc Labels, and Fan Art thread. 👍

What 'a Star Wars Story' / anthology / spinoff film would you like to see?
Time

Anakin Starkiller said:

Pass.

Kindly knock it off.

 

CarboniteSolo said:

A Disney+ series 8-10 episodes 40+ minutes long per episode.

A young Leia (around 12), and Bail Organa (before Jimmy Smits gets any older) Let’s explore Alderaan some, let’s see Leia’s Alderaan training. Clearly she’s had some weapons training (into the garbage chute, Flyboy!)

Can she pilot a ship like Anakin? Does she have those quick reflexes that force users have?

Does Yoda try to contact her? Does Obi-wan try to contact her? A Ewan McGregor cameo or voice over.

Maybe Leia’s dreams are visions of Yoda/Kenobi, or of far away places and she doesn’t understand them.

You could have Leia having nightmares about Vader, but it’s just a dark shadowy figure. She could also see images of her mother, bittersweet moments.

The droids with C-3P0 in a few episodes, but mostly R2-D2.

Mon Mothma could arrive to visit Bail Organa

Let’s have an adventure on Alderaan, let’s get to know the planet before it explodes.

These are just some of the things they could explore, just to have an idea

Would anyone like something like this?

Thoughts?

Not for me mate - however it’d sound like something decent as an animated anthology series, in a half-hour ‘Galaxy of Adventures’ style. Revisiting Leia across differing times or events of her life, maybe? It’d certainly be appealing to see more of Alderaan, how Leia becomes part of the fledging Rebellion, and the events you mentioned too.

I'll never understand the attitude of people who oppose the release of the unaltered original trilogy.

The 'Naysayer Guide’ by people who DON’T want an official unaltered theatrical release of the Original Trilogy

^ an OriginalTrilogy•com info & discussion thread cataloguing some of the oft-repeated claims, statements & comments made by some people who seemingly have issues with an official release of the unaltered theatrical version of the Original Trilogy being available - or even with fans simply asking for such a release.

The thread also hopefully includes some… clear, concise, informative, and reasoned replies.

An Original Trilogy era documentary, not seen since its TV debut back in 1983, and very much worth a mention in here is…

Corellian Sailor and his friend did a top job with the restoring and remastering of this - and also with the English subtitles too. 👍

Question regarding how to properly direct people where to find a fanedit
Time

Yes mate - that is pretty much it. 👍

Though if you could, please link to fanedit•info instead of fanedit.info (we’d prefer no actual links to other sites of that type appearing on here site) - thank you.
 

Some information on what links can and can’t be posted on here can be found in the Fan Edit / Preservation Forum Rules and FAQ thread, see ‘FAQ No. 9’.

How do I change my username? It doesn’t say but I tried finding it. Please help.

I’ve moved this from ‘Star Wars Fan Edits’ into ‘General Assistance’.
 

The ‘How do I change my username on here…?’ section of the ‘How do I do this?’ on the OriginalTrilogy.com; some info & answers + member FAQs thread, in General Assistance, should give you all the information you are looking for.

Rogue One * <em>Spoilers</em> * Thread
Time

John Knoll discusses technology and innovation on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’:-

ILM’s Publicity Group sits down with John Knoll to discuss the film’s five-year anniversary.

www.ilm.com/john-knoll-discusses-rogue-one
 

 

I loved the blend of CGI, real sets, and even kitbashing they used for the film…

Plus the fact there is still a decent model shop at ILM. As a kid it was so cool to know the film-makers were using the same models available to us in toy and model shops. (Obviously they were just a little bit better than us kids - and probably didn’t glue their fingers together, or tiny bits of kit to their fingers - as much as we did!)

 


 

greigfraser_dp (Rogue One’s director of photography):-

“I can’t believe it’s been five years since #RogueOne was released. What a dream it was for me to play in the @StarWars universe with our fearless Red Leader, #GarethEdwards. I went back and found some hair / makeup / costume and lighting tests we did in the early days, as well as some iPhone snaps. Enjoy!! @lucasfilm @ilmvfx”:-

The Original Trilogy at the Oscars
Time

Some quality articles there, Johan - and cool idea for a thread too. I don’t have much in the way of answers for you - though hopefully some of the [cough] more ‘mature’ or knowledgeable members on here do. 👍
 

The 1990 and 1992 ‘winged’ VHS box set releases both make prominent mention of the Academy Awards each film won and was nominated for (along with the box office takings) on the ‘winged’ sections…

^ from 1990.

 

^ from 1992.
 

Yet I don’t recall them being prominently mentioned (if at all) on many releases after that.

 

You could be right on Lucasfilm somewhat downplaying the past achievements - given these are more seemingly ‘focused’ on the Special Editions than the unaltered theatrical classic cuts… though Lucasfilm does still put up their most recent film releases for Oscar nominations - and have received a fair number too - yet as you say… no actual wins since 1984.

 

Gary Kurtz’ Star Wars scrapbook - available to see at the http://theswca.com/images-misc/kurtz-album.html - is worth checking out as an additional source of information too.
