There isn't enough going on for the 30th Anniversary. Where is the new DVD boxset? And why does my local Wal-Mart refuse to stock more than TWO of the new Hasbro figs? Pish-posh!

I know, there's nothing going on! =(

I wanted a 6 DVD set - hopefully (FINALLY) with EVERY cut all released once and for all in full restoration. Instead we got a few stamps and R2-D2 mailbox covers in select cities...?_?...

In any case, when I saw that Lucas wasn't going to do anything, I took matters into my own hands. I recently purchased every single release of the theatrical Star Wars Trilogy on VHS (in both full & wide screen for each release) and I plan on sequentially (chronologically by release date) watching every version of the theatrical Star Wars (the movie, not the trilogy) on May 25, 2007.

It's odd how the image quality actually goes down on each consecutive release (discounting VHS wear over time - the originals are from 1984, unless I'm mistaken) until the 1995 THX VHS release. These days, with digital technology, every release gets better and better in terms of image quality - assuming it's not marred by rushed CGI or poor color correction.

I forget where I was going with this, but to answer the topic title, I would definitely have to say that I am NOT "over" Star Wars. The Empire Strikes Back is and forever will be my favorite movie, in a permanent tie with The Great Escape.

nope, i'm never on ot. what did they say?

it looks pretty good, technically speaking, and it did pop up on may 25, 30th anniv. and the big day of Celebration IV... a day in which there was supposed to be some huge star wars announcement made (which i haven't found). so i think it's possible it could be official... but either way it looks cool.

are they saying anything about the "announcement" over there? there was a huge buzz about the announcement of another star wars movie or something coming up yesterday... but then nothing further was said.... :(

Wow, I thought this was the new Clone Wars series at first and I almost barfed. The humans look so fake! The rest is pretty great, but the people look like CG versions of the Droids series. The first shot of Leia and then the shot of Vader and his fucking mask moves as if it's his face! WTF? But other than that, I dig it. I like how Mace Windu shows up with what appears to be a robotic arm. I am really of the opinion that he lived through ROTS, and probably met his end elsewhere before ANH...

I really want the new Clone Wars series to have a more realistic effect, like the Starship Troopers show.

Well personnaly here is the rummors I heard.

From the get go , GL had in mind 9 epsiodes.

he did 456 , then produced 456 SE to make enough money for the 123 (ands proove to people concerned that the fandom was still alive an kickin').

123 came out but he was starting to get old.
So during the making of 123 he toyed with various ideas:
The animated series is one of them , some material (stories) were made into games , comics, another idea being that 789 would become a TV serie.

I don't crawl the internet for SW related stuff (see i got only one life and that wouldn't be enough) but if someone has some info on what of episodes 789 ? ..

I've never heard any plot rumors, no.

But I am switching topics. I am surprised nobody else has posted this:

The Clone Wars (CG)!

Trailer: http://www.starwars.com/video/view/000478.html

Cartoony-faced mother fuckers! I mean other than that, it looks awesome. The CGI is beautiful (hard to REALLY judge it at this low of res, though). 2008 is a long time away...

SuperShadow is probably the largest hoax the internet has ever seen. Only the Y2K bug can beat him out on popularity.
