Re: Official Star Wars Saga

Well they did all turn up at the end, admittedly audio only, but nonetheless. I think it was better done as a subtle audio appearance though, as all of them on screen would have stolen the limelight from Rey (and Daisy Ridley) which would have been unfair.

Re: Official Star Wars Saga

One day we may get to see some of the scenes as deleted scenes, as some of them were actually filmed.

I think it would have been seen as laying it on too thick. If the 'leaks' are true then Disney made the right move in trying in pull him back a bit. There is already quite a bit of fan service in this film and that would have pushed it too far.

These leaks read like a fan created script of what would be awesome. A Star Wars Greatest Hits Reunion Episode as opposed to the final film. The gang is back together one last time e.t.c.

Really the film should have been a full 3 hour debate in the Star Wars Senate thing from the prequels into the Emperors Executive Overreach but the cowards at Disney didn't have the guts. Also Ewoks flying X-Wings coming in to save the day at the end rather than all those ships.

Re: Official Star Wars Saga

this is the funny thing, so many ppl love Star Wars so much, it's impossible to please us all.

We don't know why seeing the force ghosts was cut, it could be to keep time down, it could be that it was distraction, it was unnecessary, the audio alone was more powerful.

BUT what I do know, is that if we had seen the ghosts, there would be ppl moaning that they were only put in as lip service to the fans, and that the "director's cut" with audio only would have been better . Also, which Anakin ghost? The "proper" one, from when we saw RotJ when we were kids, or the "new" one done after Ep 3? Hypethetical situation and I've already split the fan boys

There was a twitter post from Star Wars asking for fan ideas - that ewoks in x-wings needs to be submitted.

Re: Official Star Wars Saga

TROS has just hit $1bn at the box office, I didn't think it was going to make it.

Why as the Star Wars track record at the box office has always proved otherwise.

Re: Official Star Wars Saga

It was my favourite of the three. I didn't think it would hit $1bn because it didn't have the explosive start the previous two did and it had a lot of popular criticism and appeared to grind to a halt around £650m so the fact that it managed to keep going and hit $1bn is very impressive. Love it or hate it, it just shows that no matter how bad a film is certain franchises seem destined to rake in the $$$ and it is sad because it doesn't encourage Disney/Lucasfilm to really try and do a proper job; they know people will watch it regardless of how little effort they pup into it or how badly they screw it up. I think the one exception to that in relation to Star Wars is Solo.

Re: Official Star Wars Saga

But the challenge is that different peoples' definition of "badly screw it up" varies wildly, so they are never ever going to satisfy all parts of the fan base.

considering that the prequel trilogy established that Palpatane was the one who resurrected the Sith and started decades of turmoil in the galaxy, there is a very pleasing symmetry in his final denouement coming at the end of the final film. There is absolutely zero chance that this had not been discussed prior to the first story meetings for The Rise of Skywalker, and it is likewise vastly unlikely that Rey’s connection to the grand narrative of the saga had never been considered in detail.
I'll be honest and say that while I enjoyed TLJ, there were things I think that could have done better.. For instance, I felt that Akbar deserved a far more honourable death than he got.

Also, I never believed that Rey's parents were insignificant. I've seen too many films and TV shows where the writers go to great lengths to tell the viewer how a given character is insignificant only to reveal at the end that he or she is actually very significant, and the later Star Wars films have ALWAYS done that with Rey and her parents. I'll be honest, I did believe the fan theory that Luke was her father, and her mother was one of the characters from the expanded universe (even though this is not canon), perhaps Mara Jade. So I was wrong on that count.
