Thank you for reading.
“Star Wars Rebels takes place between Star Wars: Episode III and IV as the Empire tightens its grip on the galaxy and a rebellion begins to form. The series, executive produced by Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg, and Greg Weisman, is scheduled to premiere in fall 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel and will be followed by a series on Disney XD…”
"Watch an exclusive clip from the 6th and final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, streaming only on Netflix beginning March 7th in the US and Canada. In these eagerly anticipated episodes, dubbed "The Lost Missions," some of the deepest mysteries of the conflict between the light and the dark sides of the Force are revealed…"
"But, fine: say the mature Star Wars audience wants one more chance to see Luke, Leia and Han have an adventure together, giving them a big-screen send-off in a movie that presumably involves spaceships, explosions, and lightsabres. The audience may want that, but then, they also want to eat McDonalds every afternoon and never get fat. We all want a lot of things. The reason self-control was invented (if poorly applied) was because generally speaking, half of our basic impulses around “want” are at best masturbatory, or at worst, heartily self-destructive…”
I lived, ate, and breathed Star Wars from age 2 until 2005 when RotS finally beat the enthusiasm out of me, and I have NEVER, EVER in all my reading on behind-the-scenes and makings-of heard of these shots. It’s a shame there was no relaunched edit of the original trilogy they could have slipped these in OH FUCKING WAIT THERE’S BEEN LIKE 3 OF THOSE NOW.
Fuck. FUCK. Whoever decided to edit out and bury these needs to french kiss an angle grinder.
Just a reminder - here are the things that made it when Lucas recut all the movies in 1997: a CGI Jabba, a whole new Wampa, and a brand new slave girl musical number. He also edited the films slightly with each major home video release, replacing Sebastian Shaw’s ghost with Hayden Christiansen and making the Ewoks blink.
Unless there are extenuating circumstances I’m unaware of, this shit could get added back in so easily. Disney is going to rerelease these at some point - why not with these characters?
“Harrison Ford “Han Solo” non-firing DL-44 Blaster from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi…
"Based on the German issue Mauser C96 pistol, this piece, measuring 11 in. long, was custom made for the film from resin by casting the original hero prop from the first Star Wars: A New Hope, it therefore exhibits the same serial number as the hero prop, which is thought to no longer exist. The blaster is exactly in its original filming condition and therefore exhibits wear from use, but retains all of the original details, including the flash suppressor and scope (the eye-piece of which is detailed with reflective scotch-lite tape)…
"To our knowledge this is the only known example of this type of blaster in private hands. This is a truly incredible item of motion picture history and quite possibly the most exciting science fiction weapon to have been offered for public auction…
"The client was looking to create a home theater with the look and feel of being on a starship. We suggested themed three dimensional tiles inspired by the Star Wars Death Star trench and surfaces as a wainscot of sorts, running under the screen and along the lower walls and steps. These would give a sense of "tech" to the decor and, while recognizable to the avid fan, they would not be an over the top, obvious themed element. The end result blends wonderfully, with our pieces being a subtle accent, just one part of a large and awe-inspiring themed home theater."
