xp since they own LucasFilm lock, stock, and barrel he'll presumably be creating GeorgeFilm and shopping his new work around to multiple distributors

(it’s actually nondairy)

this is the lost innocence part

It is however a heavily-dyed beef slurry.

Ah yes, the famous post-Vietnam-&-Watergate innocence.


Yeah. Stupid way to put it. Should have said kids now are more jaded from content over-saturation or something.

And yet maybe more open to something like the garish theme park than people of that generation would have been?

well, innocent in that those things still seemed like relative outliers in the historical landscape for many people and not, like, a tuesday

“There’s a loss of innocence, a sense of innocence that existed in the 70s that I don’t think to any extent exists today,” Kennedy says.

Kennedy graduated from Shasta High School in Redding, California, in 1971.

On October 30, 2012, she became the president of Lucasfilm after The Walt Disney Company acquired the company for over $4 billion.

is anyone even going to care about star wars beyond this one

ciderpress, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 23:09 (one week ago) link

That leads to his crazy fan theory!

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 23:12 (one week ago) link

I’m not gonna watch a video to find out what the crazy theory is, and I don’t really care about the conclusion to the Skywalker Saga. I’m only interested in Star Wars movies directed by Rian Johnson from now on

It's a funny video. Anyway, crazy fan theory (only partly tongue in cheek) is that having hit a narrative dead-end, JJ Abrams and the writer (who did Batman V Superman and Justice League, double ugh) will just dive in and go time travel. Their two big predictions, based on next to nothing but instinct, is that 1) Luke will return more powerful than ever a la Gandolf, and that 2) stopping the bad guy from doing the thing will involve going back in time. Who knows? Who cares?

The correct spelling is Ganondorf.

Ganondorfongolf.

I was reading on my phone, so I didn't even realise it was a RLM video - get the fuck out of here with that!

Andrew Farrell, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 07:08 (six days ago) link

Are they bad? What happened? I liked all their other Star Wars stuff.

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 11:53 (six days ago) link

What will the stars do with their time when they are no longer at war?

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 17 July 2019 12:15 (six days ago) link

(It just occurred to me that they put Death Stars in 85% of these movies to make the series title something more than a vague reference to space battles.)

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 17 July 2019 12:17 (six days ago) link

What will the heroes do with their time when they are no longer at war with the (Death) Stars?

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 17 July 2019 12:17 (six days ago) link

They should make a sequel from the perspective of the Death Star.

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 12:53 (six days ago) link

Yes Planet Wars would be a more accurate name for the franchise.

chap, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 12:53 (six days ago) link

Or 'Planet Fights'.

Kylo Ren tearfully visits the gravesite of millions of fallen Death Stars, taken before their time.
