One, Five, Six, Ewok One, Ewok Two, One II, Two, Three, Seven, Rogue One, Eight, Solo: Rogue II, and then Nine is the thirteenth.

It's the ninth episodic chapter, the others are cartoons, spinoffs, or specifically marked as "stories" or "anthology material" imo

broke into a cold sweat at reading this, but it turns out to be several episodes of the TV show edited together. my tally stands and is now canonical.

Lucas described the film as "almost an afterthought." Howard Roffman, president of Lucas Licensing, said of the decision, "Sometimes George works in strange ways." Producer Catherine Winder said the sudden decision added to an already large challenge of establishing a show "of this sophistication and complexity."

there's a thread for this, Lucasfilm employees.

If Mulholland Drive counts as a feature film, then so does The Clone Wars: The Movie Which is Actually Just Three Unaired Television Episodes Stapled Together. And yes, this is a hill I'm willing to die on.

most of Mulholland Drive, by The Guy That Almost Directed Return Of The Jedi But Didn't, was written* and much of it was filmed for the movie. The European/VHS version of the Twin Peaks pilot is a curio and a sidebar, MD is a film.

after VIII i really don't care what happens in these movies. they have nothing as far as original story. they have been relying entirely on re-staging scenes and sequences from OT films. they've already done the desert planet-Empire hijinks, the death star infiltration, the hoth walkers, dagoba training, the decadence of upper class war profiteers, the ROTJ throne room battle. what have they not taken from the OT...? oh i know, maybe they will have a scene where the new characters step on a trap Scooby Doo style and end up in a giant net, captured by furry creatures.

the new movie will have a Cantina reference. the new movie will have a Star Destroyer crashing into another Star Destroyer.

until The Last Jedi, the last time I saw a Star War in the cinema* was Caravan Of Courage.

They'll probably find a way to kill off Chewie in this one.

Acid Hose (Capitaine Jay Vee), Thursday, 19 April 2018 10:28 (one year ago) Permalink

Aye, they've taken an odd reaction to the fan fury over Chewie's death on the books.

I am not looking forward to this much, which is odd because I enjoyed the first two - but The Last Jedi is so much better than The Force Awakens, and so neatly critiques it, that the prospect of JJ Abrams returning to "no the parents / lightsaber / Snoke are actually really big deals, you won't believe what happens next" fills me with some gloom.

Andrew Farrell, Thursday, 19 April 2018 11:56 (one year ago) Permalink

killing Chewbacca off makes no sense, he's in his prime middle age years while all these dumb human types are getting old

he could have an entire couple human lifetimes ahead of him, making all these shenanigans a past memory

mh, Thursday, 19 April 2018 13:20 (one year ago) Permalink

the only ending I will accept would be Chewie ditching the rest of the characters during the climax and piloting the Falcon to unknown coordinates, with the rest of his long life playing out in wistful flashes a la the Six Feet Under finale

Simon H., Thursday, 19 April 2018 13:23 (one year ago) Permalink

they kind of did that in the ending of the most recent cartoon series! their chewbacca-type character ended up riding off into the sunset

mh, Thursday, 19 April 2018 13:25 (one year ago) Permalink

I hope Chewie finally succumbs to male pattern baldness in this one.

cuz

An edited compilation DVD with the title Star Wars Animated Adventures: Droids was released on November 23, 2004. The DVD contained eight episodes of the series, edited together as two full-length movies. Besides cutting the theme song of the series, many other small modifications were made for the home video releases, most notably changes to the soundtrack.[2]

Since I didn't go to Star Wars Celebration this year for the first time since 2012, I've been at home this weekend watching all the livestreams and stuff. Not a lot was revealed during the Episode IX panel aside from the title, some stills (new costumes, Naomi Ackie's new character, Rose and Rey talking in what appears to be a Resistance base, etc.). But yeah, I was watching when the Ian McDiarmid thing happened, and the room went pretty insane.

Also watched the livestreams for the upcoming new "The Mandalorian" show, which actually looks pretty good. The sizzle reel and trailer that were shown were blacked out on the stream, but they've leaked to Reddit and some other places. (Recap and photos at https://www.starwars.com/news/swcc-2019-9-things-we-learned-from-the-mandalorian-panel) They're using a lot of practical and in-camera effects and models, and the actors are doing a lot of their own stunts.

not related to the new movie, but got a bit of a scare when I went to look up Boushh on Wookiepedia the other day and was met with a distressingly short article. https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Boushh

Fortunately, I realized that they had divided each page into Canon and Legends tabs: https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Boushh/Legends

"Legends" is obviously where the ridiculousness lives.

I'm watching the Episode I 20th anniversary panel while I'm at work, and based on that and an interview with Ahmed Best on the show floor yesterday (this is his first appearance at a convention), Lucas was prescient about one thing - the kids who grew up with Jar Jar love him. Who knew.

Well, the kids who grew up with the Ewoks (such as me) love them, whereas AFAIK a lot of people who saw RotJ as teens or adults hate them. So is it surprising if the same happened with Jar Jar? Or with any cutesy sidekick in a family-friendly franchise, really?
