    Star wars fans are crazy and I mean that as a compliment. The amount of work and dedication they pour into these projects to preserve the original cuts is staggering.

    Due to my excitement for Battlefront and The Force Awakens I decided to pop in my bonus features from the 2004 trilogy DVD set to watch 'Empire of Dreams', the making of the Star Wars Trilogy. I've seen it before, but it's still very much worth watching.

    Which version of the OT is cannon since Disney owns SW? Is it the ones from "Star Wars: The Complete Saga" Blu-ray set?

    Is it possible to get a DVD or Blu-ray without Darth Vader saying "NOOOO" before throwing Palpatine to his death? I don't mind a lot of the changes, but I do not like that one.

    As far as I know that's only on the blu-ray release. One of the reasons I'm not getting the blu-rays until they finally put out the theatrical cuts.

    Something interesting from a recent Gareth Edwards interview on Rogue One.
    http://lwlies.com/interviews/gareth-edwards-rogue-one-a-star-wars-story/

    No information on which version it is but I thought it was worth posting.

    I'm guessing it's the 2011 version that's on the Blu-ray. IMO if they released the original theatrical version on 4K which means you'd need to purchase a 4K Blu-ray player as well as a 4K TV in order to watch it, it would also be a giant "f*** you" to the fans.

    Anyone think A New Hope will be re-released for the 40th anniversary?

    I know I'm slow in the take up on this but recently got the blu-ray 2011 set and the original trilogy look spectacular on it, not keen on the changes frankly in presenting the 1997 special editions and some day hope the originally released trilogy come onto blu ray but as a 'put me on' till the ultimate 1-9 films box set in a few years comes out, it'll put me on.

    Do any of the books, comics or general behind the scenes information in the new continuity reveal whether Artoo ever told Luke or Leia anything about Anakin & Padmé?

    Or whether Artoo knew Vader was Anakin or what Anakin was actually doing on Mustafar - I cannot recall whether any of the droids witness the confrontation between Obi-Wan, Padmé and Anakin?

    Or why Kenobi & the Lars didn't give Luke a different surname?

    Would it be possible to minimize the use of Yoda in the poster/box art of the movies so that it is, for new viewers, more of a surprise that he is the Jedi Master in TESB? Or has that ship already sailed?

    Sailed, sunk, re-floated, fixed, sailed again, and again, and again...finally decommissioned, retired, and currently waiting to be scraped at the Brooklyn Naval Yard.

    RIP to Dave Prowse.
    I met him around 30 years ago. I took the CLOCKWORK ORANGE soundtrack to be signed because I had read he was very proud of the movie. As I stood in a very long line to get his autograph I heard a bunch of the people pretty much say and ask the same few questions about STAR WARS. He would give a polite answer and they would move on. When it was my turn, I handed him the album and asked what it was like working with Kubrick. A big grin came to his face, he leaned back in his chair and put his arms behind his head and said "Ahhhh....let me tell you about Stanley." He then talked to me for about 20 minutes telling me several stories about Kubrick until an assistant reminded him he needed to let the line move again.
    RIP Mr. Prowse....you were a gentleman.
