Having cut out the 90% of that scene which looked ridiculous, what's left isn't that bad.

But you can never truly erase this:



I’ve purposely never tried to examine that scene too closely because I want to still like Star Wars, but jesus christ the dudes fighting Rey literally just run away

Worst Star Wars names are Ello Asty and Lowen Slo. Abrams and Johnson think they"re clever

Lucas named a villain “Nute Gunray.”

If you like Star Wars it’s a must-visit. My wife and I are annual passholders so we got to go for the advance preview back in August and we’ve been back a few times since then and it owns.

Highlights include building your own lightsaber, extremely in-character cantina bartenders serving me very alcoholic drinks at 6 AM, and some dude yelling at Kylo Ren “It’s okay, I know you’re mad at your dad but I forgive you!”

Robot Style posted:

The first movie's fight choreography also had to content with the in-camera lightsaber effect they were trying - the blades were wrapped in reflective movie screen material, and the hilts had motors that would rotate them in order to make them flicker. The sabers also had wires that ran up the actors sleeves to battery packs, so they were pretty clumsy to use and had to stay in very specific places in order to actually reflect the light correctly.

See also: The moments when Guinness points his lightsaber directly at the camera and the blade fades into a little black dot, which is something that was bafflingly never completely corrected in Lucas's dozens of revisions.

Robot Style posted:

The latest release on Disney+ has it fixed (which comes from the 4K restoration Lucas was working on before the sale), but placemat lore had already retconned that as being a result of Vader's Sith lightsaber having the ability to break an opponent's blade due to its powerful synthetic crystal.



Seriously? This is so goddamn dumb. I can't believe I didn't know about this. Do you have a link? It belongs firmly in the Corran Horn and Other Science Facts thread.

Are the forms even canon anymore? I remember always thinking they were a little bit silly and would never survive the Canon/Legends split but lol.

That "materialization" bullshit is actually kind of a clever in-universe workaround nobody asked for when the answer is "slower ignitions are more dramatic."

I somehow missed that people cared about that guy until the ice cream maker showed as the beskar tote in the mandalorian

It had been a thing for years if not decades. There are photos of dozens of Willrows at every annual SW Celebration. Much like the Graflex flash, that particular ice cream maker model is really hard to come by because Star Wars nerds snap them up whenever they pop up for sale.
