Return Of The Jedi’s ‘Black Friday’ - 22nd November, 1982...
Time

The Star Wars At A Glance posts are particularly intriguing/illuminating here (specifically the end of the Y-Wing post, the B-Wing post, and “Unsung Heroes of the Battle of Endor”). You have to wonder if the elimination of Vivienne Chandler from the film is a result of Black Friday (and not having enough time to re-do all the effects for her role), or maybe her performance wasn’t that good (see also: Dermot Crowley’s reduced role as Crix Madine), or if the Battle was just way too long and bloated. Unfortunately, it’s probably impossible to discern the truth as it may be a mixture of the effects & bloat (like why they cut Jerjerrod’s moral dilemma).

Sign me right up for this timeline.

Star Wars 5: Jar Jar’s Great Adventure
Star Wars 6: The Creeping Fear

Also, why do I get the uneasy sense that these titles are connected to each other. The “creeping fear” being that Jar Jar is really the mastermind behind all this.

In case it wasn’t clear, I made up essentially none of those titles

Prequel Special Editions
Time

I would love this. I was disappointed (though understanding) when Ady cancelled his Prequels:Revisited plans, and similarly when Aalenfae’s prequel edits fell apart due to computer failure, which were something like what you’re envisioning. I think it’s been talked about before around here as well, particularly as regards using alternate takes of scenes, in the faint hope that alternate takes might suck less; I have my doubts.

Of course, it’ll never happen.

Cassian Andor - Live-Action Series

as well as seeing the Rebel Alliance slowly start to form.

I know I have a tendency to insufferably bang on about the series sometimes, but surely we already have Star Wars Rebels for this? It’s not quite the comprehensive guide as it focuses on one cell - Phoenix Squadron - through to the Alliance’s formation, leaving room for other stories, but at the same time I’d guess Andor won’t try to focus so much on the same aspect.

There’s some amount of market fragmentation (or whatever the right term is) to consider here. My wife has never watched an animated Star Wars show, but we’ll almost certainly watch this.

Wait until you see what’s coming. It’s going to blow your mind. That’s all I can say. I can talk it up all I want, because I know it over-delivers. It way over-delivers. People are going to be so pumped when they see it.

This may be true, but surely this is also how he talks about every project?

I’m in favour of the inclusion of the Imperial March. This project has often called itself ‘what the special editions should have been’. They’ve never been particularly purist; they’ve been about bringing up the originals to a lovely, more modern standard. Vader in ANH was a lesser villain, yes, but his character was more striking than Lucas anticipated on ANH’s release, so much so that the saga from that point grew around him. Whether or not Lucas/Williams paired Vader with the Imperial March on his first appearance, the two are now paired. It’s entirely appropriate that a project that seeks to polish the original trilogy pair the two in ANH retroactively.

My thoughts exactly.

This explanation really is spot-on.

The process of Rosario evolving into Ahsoka are gone by steps:

  1. Rosario puts her hair up and puts the wig cap on but her ponytail is not covered.
  2. The artists apply white latex under Rosario’s eyes.
  3. The artists then put the white dome to cover Rosario’s ponytail.
  4. Brian then applies the rubbery piece onto her eyebrows and hair strands.
  5. Rosario’s face and neck are then painted orange.
  6. The buds are then placed into her ears.
  7. The artists place the plastic mask onto Rosario’s face so that the white tatoos can be airbrushed.
  8. The plastic mask is removed and the headpiece is then placed onto Rosario’s head.
  9. Her arms, hands, and back were then painted orange.
  10. Rosario then puts on the blue contact lenses and her evolution is finished.

Here’s the process of How Rosario becomes Tano. I’m not sure if I’m accurate, but Rosario can tell us the REAL process of how she becomes Ahsoka Tano.

Yeah we all saw your post the first time.

Okay I’ve just thought of something, but Obi-wan says his pupil was called Darth Vader. As in that was his first and last name, a normal name. Not some dumbass evil moniker like every other dumbass red saber swinging goof in the universe.

Yeah, that is why he calls him “Darth” during the duel

I can’t defend the Dark Trooper Dubstep, but…

I watched a little interview with Göransson and he talked about the music not being traditional Star Wars, but that the trumpet fanfare in Mando’s theme being the one part that’s a tribute to William’s scores. Fair enough. However, the end of this episode took a much more traditional, orchestral turn. Of course, the end of the episode also featured a Jedi Knight cutting down Imperial troops, talking about the Force, etc.

  • What happens to Gideon and the Scientist now?
  • Will we actually hear more about Gideon’s research project, or is hinting that it’s part of creating Snoke all we need because this show is not about that?
  • Was that all his research project was about, or was he trying to give himself Force powers???
  • What happens with Bo-Katan and Din? It’s not like she wants to kill him, what with all the help he’s been. She’s not without honor.
  • Did this resurrect the “Boba Fett is not a Mandalorian” debate?
  • How does Grogu escape Kylo & The Knights of Ren?
  • When and where will Grogu & Din see each other again? Like, when Din is 90 years old and still ruling Mandalore, and Master Rey dispatches her cutest Knight as an emissary to the Mandalorians?
  • Did they have Boba fly away just so that he and Luke wouldn’t run into each other? It would go even worse than if Ahsoka & Luke met (I assume she would just not trust him, being his father’s son)
  • Was Luke’s whole plan to just show up in an X-Wing by himself and capture Grogu? I guess he can do that.
  • Did Cara recognize him as the great hero of the Rebellion who blew up the machine that destroyed her planet? Unless she did, I don’t think anyone on that bridge actually knew the name of the guy who took Grogu with him.
  • Did Artoo and Grogu recognize each other from their Old Republic days? Did Artoo spend time with the Younglings?

I actually don’t think they’ll have Luke play a big role in any of the shows after this. Like maybe a cameo, maybe, but they’d be smart to not use him much at all.
