<strong>The Rise Of Skywalker</strong> — Official Review and Opinions Thread
Time

I’ve been watching theater audience reaction videos (mostly positive ones). How much do you want to bet that half of the people in the theaters are part of that damned “Fandom Menace” group, ready to return to their caves, go on a computer, and insult fans of the film, while also sending death threats to the cast & crew, and creating videos on YouTube (with some of the dumbest, clickbaity thumbnails I’ve ever scene)? That’s the scary part about all of this. When you go out to a Star Wars event, you never no if the fellow fans beside you are part of the toxicity. They may seem decent on the outside, but in actuality, they are cold blooded monsters, hellbent on spreading their miserable points of view all over the planet. It’s hard to trust other fans…

Blu-Ray and other HD box size STAR WARS covers

I am a fan of the Sequel Trilogy posters. I still miss painted posters, though. Part of me wonders why studios like Disney & Lucasfilm can’t commission someone to paint the posters. Is it too expensive? Is it cheaper to get a random person in-house to edit pictures together on PhotoShop or whatever program is used for making posters, like the one above? Are they afraid that modern fans will complain that it’s a painting and not a collage of photos? Paintings are not out of date.

Great work. That poster is yet another reminder of how much I miss painted movie posters. I guess it’s hard hiring artists. Today, if a movie does have a painted poster in marketing, it’s either for Dolby cinemas, or IMAX, instead of making it the official one for its theatrical release.

Thank you Skywalkerfan101. Nobody will step up like Drew Struzan did. I think the studios don’t care anymore. They can make a poster in Photoshop. I just wish they would hire some artists for these big summer films. Can you imagine an Avengers Endgame poster drawn by Drew Struzan?

Please bring back the painted movie posters.

Granted, there are some good digital posters out there, but a painted one is always more iconic for bigger movies. Look at Struzan’s unreleased sketches for other films.

A new Cinderella Blu-Ray is coming soon (Anniversary Edition - The Signature Collection) but it’s not confirmed if it’s a new remaster. Let’s hope is is…

I don’t know what to say about the cover art. She’s running down the castle steps, desperate trying to leave as the clock is striking twelve (while the spell is fading away), and she’s smiling? The picture looks as though she is casually walking down the stairs, then “oops.” She just dropped her slipper. Better turn around and get it. Don’t get me wrong, the art and composition look great (as expected from Disney), but If they want to make cover art of Cinderella smiling, I don’t think that’s really the ideal scene to use.
