I certainly remember the lightsaber spoons that came in boxes of cereal. I was also a big fan of the Burger King toys and watches. Hard to believe that was over 15 years ago.
I would go with Disney+. The only major difference you’ll notice in TPM is the digital yoda, and the other two films are nearly identical to the DVD releases.
The trailer for the CW movie I presume?
Yeah, don’t know if there is any interest in it here. Does anyone know if the TCW movie had a physical film release or was it digital only?
There were definitely film prints made, as none of the theaters near me had gone digital yet in 2008.
Was it a wide release in the US? I have no memory of a theatrical release in the UK - I would have been 13 so I may have ignored it as I perceived myself as being too old for cartoons. Would be funny if it was theatrical in US and not UK, the opposite of the Ewok movies.
It was in fact a wide release. I went to see it in August 2008 at a theater that didn’t switch to digital until 2014.
This sounds great, I wonder if we could ever get a 4K99 however
Why can’t it be released online? I know there are reasons, I just don’t know what they are.
Why was BB8 on the Star Destroyer at the end? Shouldn’t he have been on Poe’s X wing?

I think it’s been determined the editing was done to remove the original theatrical footage from the doc and replace it with the current cuts? I believe that’s the case. Everything else seems to be exactly the same.
I skimmed it the other night and the original crawl, the Alderaan and Death Star explosions, and Han running into the stormtrooper hallway were the same as they were in the OUT. Not sure why some footage was changed and some wasn’t, because I remember hearing about the footage being changed to SE too.
You know, I did notice the dialogue often sounded surprisingly crappy when I watched the D+ version of A New Hope. I couldn’t believe that an official 4K copy would sound like that when plenty of other sources/versions (both official and unofficial) sound so much better. It’s like they couldn’t find the proper recordings and just used somebody’s cassette tape they recorded off a tv broadcast as a kid for some of the dialogue!
The trash compactor scene is the worst.
I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility. IT 2 and Doctor Sleep are both getting extended cuts on home video, and with Endgame and Spider Man both getting rereleases with new footage, who knows what’s going to happen. Considering that none of the things I’ve mentioned above were asked for but still happened, I think that the big issue right now is the fact that something like this is unprecedented for a Star Wars movie and what completed footage is available for use. Even if the whole story about JJ being bullied by the studio isn’t true, based on what we’ve heard about the production I highly doubt he’s completely satisfied with the final product.
Well I hate to say it but I think it’s supposed to seem like a ghost town in a way that contrasts what we saw before. I mean just look at the cantina.
Things are so bad they even let droids work in there now.
I’m sure it won’t be anything larger than what happened in Endgame, but I’m still happy to hear some progress towards LGBTQ inclusion in the Star Wars movies.
This was leaked a little while back. Two female Resistance pilots kiss before the final battle.
Did we ever work out if the sound mixes are totally new? The waveforms look different to me vs. the blurays, but my hearing isn’t fantastic so I can’t really tell if they sound noticeably different.
Tarkin’s dialogue before the destruction of Alderaan is MUCH clearer than I know it was at one point but maybe this is a Blu Ray change? I don’t have them so I don’t know.
it looks a bit more odd than before.
Is that even possible?
Somehow, yes. I noticed the same thing.
Maybe my eyes are deceiving me, but I’m pretty sure that the atmosphere around Tatooine in ROTJ is no longer there.
I’d really like to see a pic of the Death Star praxis wave. I assume it’s no longer washed out like it was on the DVD/Blu?
It certainly had the potential to improve on the original cut, but the constant continuity errors with the windows in Cloud City absolutely ruin it for me. Atrocious.
If they’re thinking 3 discs per movie, what does this mean for the prequels and the sequels? I find it hard to believe they’d have enough content for each movie to fill 3 discs, but maybe I’m wrong.
What area are you from? Perhaps a nearby college or university with a good film department would help you scan the print.
The famous “chase scene” originally featured the pirates chasing women around in circles. There was also one pirate who was leaned up against a barrel who held a piece of a woman’s clothing and asked the guests if they’d seen her as she poked her head out from a barrel behind him. The women were later given food so it looked like that’s what the pirates were lusting after instead. The pirate who held the girls clothes was given a turkey leg to hold instead.

The 90’s changes and the movie changes sucked too, but somehow I was still able to tolerate them. This just seems like it’s gone too far, and poorly done to boot.
As some of you may or may not know, the iconic auction scene from this classic Disney attraction that has been there since opening day has been changed to be more politically correct. Anybody have any thought on this? Personally, I hate to see it go since it’s so iconic and is the only scene Walt Disney himself watched before his death. Here are both the old and new scene.

I can’t help but think about how much this film would’ve benefited from having Han survive TFA and take the part of Rose in this film. After TFA, I think it would’ve been nice to build on the Finn/Han relationship a little bit. Sure, some story aspects would have to change, but the overall story, which I enjoyed, wouldn’t. This way we could’ve had our OT trio have a final film together where they all get some decent screen time. I guess this is TFA’s problem though.
Two out of three of the Sequel Trilogy films (thus far) have ended with the Force Theme. Out of all the issues with the Sequel Trilogy, this is one that really irks me. It made sense in the context of both The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, but you’d think Williams wouldn’t be so repetitive.
And there is no doubt in my mind it will be the same case for Episode IX.
Williams ended Revenge of the Sith with it too. That means the last three Star Wars films have all used the force theme at the end. I agree, it would seem as one of the greatest composers of all time would avoid this type of repetition.
I loved the film, but was extremely disappointed they said the words “Darth Sidious”. That was my biggest complaint.
1.) Star Wars
2.) The Empire Strikes Back
3.) Return of the Jedi
4). The Force Awakens
5). The Phantom Menace (I’m part of the minority that thinks this is the best prequel)
6.) Revenge of the Sith
7) Attack of the Clones
