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.

Changes to the Disney+ 2019 SE of the Original Trilogy

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.

4K restoration on Star Wars

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.

Rumor: COUNTDOWN to 'The Rise of Skywalker' - EXTENDED CUT...
Time

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.

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.

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.

Pirates of the Caribbean and the Political Correctness Craze
Time

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.

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.

Episode VIII : The Last Jedi - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

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.

The Last Jedi: Official Review and Opinions Thread ** SPOILERS **

JawsTDS said:

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.

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW
Time

One of the biggest problems I’ve had with despecialized is in the shot where Han has chased the stormtroopers into the dead end on the death star; the one that was changed with a hangar in 1997. The wall on the far right side of the frame was digitally altered in the SE and still appears that way in DE. Are there any plans to fix this?
