Took a week and a day off and still no news.

I feel like we're stuck in some kind of black hole of news.

We're in limbo

I think Disney wanting to make a big spectacle out of the announcement is what's hurting us here lol.

Such a dry spell this week. Not just for Star Wars, but for film news in general, be it tentpole, genre, or indie.

If I was a betting man, I would bet that JJ's next film will be an adaptation of Valve's Half-Life after Star Wars.

Anyone watching any new sci-fi-ish shows?

I recently finished a rewatch of all of the old Star Trek DS9 and Voyager. For newer shows I watched all of Orphan Black and now am watching Continuum.

We just started watching Fringe a couple weeks ago. We're a few episodes into season 3. I like it.

Yeah Fringe is quite good. One of the few projects associated with Abrams that I liked since none of his movies left me particularly happy. It's a show that knew when to play up the drama and when to play up the more comedic aspects, especially with Walter. It's something that a certain other show (cough Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. cough) could have learned something from, ratings be damned. I'm currently into Season 2 of Continuum right now, and that show just continues to get better. It doesn't really have any of the comedy of Fringe but it hits a similar spot.

Short film meant to accompany 'Empire Strikes Back' makes a comeback
'Star Wars' art director Roger Christian's 25-minute 'Black Angel,' which he thought had been lost, is found and restored and finally gets its North American premiere.

Quote:
For decades it was a missing relic of the "Star Wars" era: an Arthurian tale about a knight returning from the crusades who is transported to a mystical realm where he must rescue a princess.

Called "Black Angel," the 25-minute movie was written, directed and produced in 1979 by Roger Christian, an art director who won an Academy Award for his set decoration work on "Star Wars."

"Black Angel," which was made with the support of "Star Wars" director George Lucas, was screened in Europe and Australia as a short film just before showings of "The Empire Strikes Back" in 1980.

It was never screened again.

Until recently, Christian had assumed the original film prints were lost. Now, thanks to a serendipitous discovery by an archivist at Universal Pictures and services volunteered by Emeryville, Calif., visual effects company Athena Studios, the movie has come back to life.

This week a digital restoration of the movie made its North American theatrical premiere at the 36th annual Mill Valley Film Festival in Marin County. Christian plans to release the film on Netflix and Apple's iTunes early next year.

"I've waited three decades to be able to show this film to audiences once again," Christian said. "I'm so grateful."

The London native, now 69, had just finished work on Ridley Scott's "Alien" and Monty Python's "Life of Brian" when he decided to take the leap from decorating and designing film sets to directing his first feature.

He saw his opportunity when he learned that Lucas was dissatisfied with the short film that had accompanied the original "Star Wars" in Britain. For "The Empire Strikes Back," Lucas wanted a film that was more compatible with his movies' themes.

Christian had gone back to school to study film direction. While a student at the National Film School near London, he wrote a script for "Black Angel," a romantic tale that, like Star Wars, was influenced by legendary Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa.

Lucas liked the script and instructed executives at 20th Century Fox to let Christian make the movie with the help of a British government grant worth about $50,000.

"George said, 'Go and make it,'" Christian said.

Traveling in a Volkswagen camper bus and towing a horse trailer, Christian took a crew of 13 people to the rugged western Highlands of Scotland, where they filmed at Eilean Donan castle. They used a local school pool to film an underwater scene, and shot the entire movie in just seven days.

To save money, Christian used leftover rolls of film from "The Empire Strikes Back." He also relied on makeshift practical effects, including a spray can for simulating cobwebs. He used slow motion in some battle scenes to make the film longer.

The movie was released in 1980 with screenings of "The Empire Strikes Back" in Britain, some other European countries and Australia.

The great thing about never seeing most of the Battlestar Galactica reboot is that I can watch the rest of it for the first time.

Your guess is as good as mine about that.

We're doomed to remain in Star Wars limbo for a while longer.

I'm going through DS9 for the first time (in order at least). Really, really fantastic show. Unless they really screw something up, it will most likely replace TNG as my favorite Star Trek by the time I'm done with it.
