I did make an edit using the workprint and uploaded it to archive.org before it was taken down by a ravenous hoard of Thomas fans

The director posted about it asking people to stop posting about it though in fear that they would never release the deleted footage because it was leaked. She wanted it released properly

Odd since it’s not in the details for the Blu-Ray release:

The workprint isn’t, but the “Deleted Story Lines” are, which is where everyone expects to find the missing footage.

Really wish Adywan would add this line back in. The Sith aren’t mentioned till the prequels, so itd be nice to hear of the Sith (and more of the Emperor) in ANH

Holy shit, this line is amazing, I definitely want to add it to my edit.

There you go everyone, absolute proof that Darth Vader is and always was a Sith and the Sith always existed in Star Wars.

Well sure, the term appears as early as the May, 1974 rough draft.

STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - ** PRODUCTION HAS NOW RESTARTED **

Agreed, those colors/saturation are pretty bad, but the DS looks good.

The SkyForge stuff looks great, and I hope he teams up with some folks who shoot live action and/or have storytelling vision. Occasionally it felt like it was verging on cartoony or claymation feel, but better that than bad CG.

Maybe an unused take of the race to the Falcon or the pad where Boba was taking off from? Meant to be a plate for a matte shot. Somewhere I’ve seen a still of a blue screen shot of Lando leading Han and the gang that was supposed to composited with a Cloud City exterior that never made it into the film.

It was used, the camera is above filming and they did have a shot from above when they were running to the Falcon with the matte painting around it. Cool image, I didn’t know it was shot outside.

Though it appears to be a different take/setup where Chewie is behind, rather than in the lead.

But who on earth is going to figure that out from the film? Hrumph.

Agreed, but there’s only one Mon Cal ship at the Battle (if memory serves). As such, and given that we don’t see any others at Yavin in the film, it’s possible to surmise that the Mon Cal faction in the Alliance, or at least ready to fight, was small at this point.

If it’s not in the film, it isn’t “known” to the audience.

Sorry to say, but the audience knew the word “Ewok”

The obscure novelization giving info on how the Emperor gained power & the massive advertising juggernaut plastering EWOK on everything are very different situations.

I agree; I was just pointing out that the principle he espoused is definitely false as a general principle.

Highly doubtful you’ll ever see lightsiders wielding red sabers in the new canon given the new canon’s explanation for how they’re created.

Just because “bleeding” them turns them red doesn’t mean they can’t also “naturally” be red.

While technically correct, this would be visually confusing.

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

True, but I would argue that these two approaches are not highly distinct for an ever expanding property like Star Wars. Even if worldbuilding starts out with little glimpses, future installments will naturally expand these glimpses and give their own. The end result is the same - a large, continuing universe. Whether or not it’s well-thought-out is down to the care and planning of these stories.

So the worldbuilding for Star Wars has been a priority since the beginning of the Expanded Universe. Originally it was supposed to be this grand interconnected story, and it kinda was occasionally, but it quickly became careless and haphazard.

The weird thing is that everyone figured that the de-canonization of the old EU was to make way for a more Marvel-esque expanded universe from Disney, but their attempt has been no better than the first one.

Was it a priority? The “modern” EU started with Zahn refusing to include Dark Empire references in HotE, DE getting some HotE refs thrown in, and then DE being ignored for awhile. https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Dark_Empire#Conception_and_release
(though I am surprised to learn he did include material from the Roleplaying Game)

(Never mind Splinter of the Mind’s Eye, Lando Adventures and Han Adventures, of course)

I think there’s a difference between world-building with a larger, continuing, well-thought-of universe in mind (what many fans want Star Wars to be, Marvel Cinematic Universe, etc) and providing little glimpses of a larger universe without too much concern for exploring or explaining in the future (what the original Star Wars did)
