A copy of Trevorrow's abandoned Episode 9 script has leaked... and it sounds way better than the trash fire that was released two years ago.

That script would have been better for Hux committing seppuku with Mace Windu's lightsaber while losing the second battle of Coruscant alone


Rise of Skywalker is worse than the prequels. What they did was snip-snap-snip-snap like when Michael Scott details how he reversed his vasectomy multiple times

when i was a kid i imaged the clone wars mentioned in the first SW movie to have involved jedi fighting clones of themselves. I don't know why I thought that.... but for some reason at 6 years old my mind went to a weird place and I thought it must have been like Bizarro superman or something. And Obi Wan had to fight an evil clone of himself...

Immediate PTSD after thinking about this boss in the first one - you had your plasma blaster, all was going super smoothly... then some bogus glitch crap and you're back to skinny lame blaster and life is ROUGH:

Those games are specifically hard because Blockbuster game rentals were so prevalent. Developers just turned up the difficulty dial to 10 so that's you couldn't beat it in a weekend.

To this day I have no fucking clue how a person can be reasonably expected to get past Hoth in Empire Strikes back or past the Death Star in the original one. Return of the Jedi was much much easier after they apparently figured out wtf they had committed.

Never thought about it through that lens - I wonder if that's a major factor as to why games were a lot harder then than they are now. Because, man - some of those things back then were just SO brutal.

Saw a post recently with a vintage Kay Bee toys ad and was amazed that the high end SNES Games were $69 or $74.99 back in the early 90s. So weird how video games are one thing that have somehow completely managed to evade inflation/price changes.

Toys R Us 1980. I remember that they had an entire aisle of SW toys.

Not a single child in this video... Just lots of Gen X 20-30ish year olds. Lots of bad looking goatees. This was May 3rd, 1999. Toys came out around 3 weeks prior to the film. But I think Burger King and Pepsi started their Episode 1 merchandising in April.

Burger King offered mini action figures. And Pepsi had collectible character cans that people went nuts for. I was doing business with Pepsi at the time and they gave me a complete set of the character cans (empty) in a specially logo'd cardboard display case before they were available in Stores. I saw someone else selling it on Ebay at one point for $1k. But I had thrown it out when i split up with my Ex so i never got to sell it.

There were actually two Ep. I toys released much earlier iirc to stir up attention: the battle droid action figure with STAP and Panaka’s Naboo land speeder from the action series

I saw Ep 1 before it was released at a special screening in Detroit. I mostly liked it at the time. I was active on theforce.net bulletin boards back then and by Memorial day there was an online flame war underway about whether Ep 1 was shit. Which kind of soured me to it as well for a long time. Now... I am not hating it. I kind of like it again.

I didn't realize it at the time, but it was a precursor of the current star wars bro online culture that is all over every social media platform now. It's completely toxic, with hatred aimed today at Kathleen Kennedy and any woman or person of color that's part of current Lucasfilm projects.

One of the few SW podcasts i could even tolerate over the past 5 years shut down because the two women hosting it were trolled, stalked, threatened, and driven off line by Star Wars bros who couldn't handle any women having positive takes on things characters like Rey, Finn, Rose, or any of the sequel trilogy films.

It's generally agreed that Star Wars hasn't produced a good film since 1980, right? Return of the Jedi has it's moments but it's pretty weak overall. Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher both look like they don't want to be there. The prequels are doo-doo. The sequel trilogy had no planning, no vision. Just directionless, overlong slogs. I don't give a fuck about any of the spinoffs. So don't go telling me Rogue One is good ackshully.

Why do people still care about Star Wars?

I liked Rogue One. The Clone Wars was good. The Mandalorian is good. Looking forward to pretty much all the upcoming Disney Plus programming.

My nephews were kids when the prequels came out and they think they're amazing, and they think the original trilogy is bad.

it's generational. Kids today will look back at the sequels in 30 years the way GenX views the OT today.
