I thought about calling this 'The Thread Wars Holiday Special' but that should have gone before 'The Thread Strikes Back' tongue

The real question is whether anybody actually wants an Obi Wan movie.  Is Disney systematically destroying Star Wars?

Well, I'd take an Obi-Wan movie over a Han Solo one.

Ideally they'd make some original content rather than just piggybacking off the OT.

im not interested in either movie if im honest..

Rogue One apealed to me because not just was centered on the civil war and the conflict between the Alliance and the Empire rather than the disastrous Skywalker family adventures... but it dealt with that 2/3 of A New Hope opening crawl and that first victory rebel space ships had achieved.. if they would be doing spin-off to tell things worth seeing of the Star Wars universe that was definitily on the list..

however.. histories from Han Solo?  or Obi Wan while hiding in Tatooine?

i mean because they ONLY should do that.. they have Ewan Mcgregor being 46 now ..he would be 48/49 by the time the movie is filmed... Alec Guinness was 61/62 when he filmed Star Wars..barelly 12 years diference and with an actor who allready portrayed Obi Wan in 3 movies way longer than Guinness.. AND his image and voice likeness used for a series wich ran nearly 6 seasons..

using a third new actor to portray Obi Wan would be stupid and confusing to say the least...

With that in mind they are now revealing quite a lot of Kenobi's life on Tatooine....not just the bit in Rebels..but much canonical information about his interactions with locals and the Lars family.. this leaves less and less for a potential movie and we know they dont like doing stuff already shown... and they have allready shown his most likelly highest-point in his exile wich was

so they would only have left some off-topic tangential adventure wich would be pointless in the great scheme of stuff... the only thing worth would be explaining why Owen doesnt like he very much ,why he lied to Luke about his father and forbidden Kenobi to give Luke his father's sword.. that could give good interactions between Owen and Kenobi (Owen actor Joel Edgerton is 43 now..he would be also in good position to portray an older Owen..Bonnie Piesse less so since she is 33 but why not.. 20 years between Luke was delivered to them in universe and would be 15 years between ROTS and that movie).. but we should avoid seeing Luke as much as posible..

there was so much to tell in the style of Rogue One..  so much to explore in the 4 years between Yavin and Endor.. or so much after Endor.. but no.. lets brag that we wont make legacy characters into the new movies and then make all movies about them

Should change the thread title to Return of the Thread-i.

Edit: Oh, you guys already discussed this in the last thread. Well, for what it's worth I think Tnuk it wrong. If it had been up to me the last thread would have been called The Threadpire Strikes Back! Certainly the one before that would not have been A New Thrope though...you only make the pun if it presents itself and sounds good.

Tnuk it wrong? That sounds wrong in more than one sense.

As for your naming convention, it is bad in that the commonality between various thread names on PEEL for ages was to replace one word of a title or phrase which fit with the word "thread".

The whole word. Replaced with thread. PEEL naming convention. Look it up. I am, as winna said in the last thread, the most technically correct.

The best kind of correct.

Your face is wrong.

I think if the threads had been named as I suggested ("A New Thread," "The Threadpire Strikes Back," "Return of the Thread-i") there would still be an established naming convention, which is that "thread" only replaces one syllable in the title each time, that syllable just happens in one case to also be the whole word. So take that and shove it up your big pedantic butt. Tnuk it. Tnuk it all to heck!

Okay fr, I've been lurking on this thread for a while now and we're still more concerned with the title of this thread than anything in it  laff

I haven't watched the series in a long ass time, pretty big fan of Padme and I love Anakin (thanks Danny)
Han Solos a favorite though. I'll have to rewatch them again soon! eek

I admit I was surprised that you didn't know.  And this is from from a guy who keeps an open tab with Urban Dictionary to look up all the unfamiliar acronyms he comes across on reddit smile

I don't have a link to the original interview, but this is an excerpt from AP Film Writer Jake Coyle talking with Mark Hamill about his role in the long Star Wars story line, and the shadow that Carrie Fisher's death has cast over the upcoming film, and how making The Last Jedi is different because of her passing.

[edit] This is Mark Hamill speaking

"It is different. She was irreplaceable. There can never be a proper reunion anymore. It's tragic. I hate that it adds an air of melancholy to the film because it doesn't deserve it. I know for a fact she would obviously want us to be having fun. She was all about laughter and enjoying the moment. We're all sort of having this communal period of grief. In a way, it sort of reflects the movies themselves, which were about triumphs and tragedies. They are about a family a dysfunctional family, but a family nonetheless."

I'm very much looking forward to the new film. Star Wars is in my blood, and always will be. (Don't you dare, tnuc! tongue )

I was referring to PEEL's overall established naming convention from the early days of link, test, quiz, etc. threads. Which that thing that you said doesn't really follow. But thanks for playing.

I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

But speaking of the next Star Wars movie, I'm actually thinking about definitively charting the inconsistencies between the three trilogies once "From His Nap" is released.

So, this exists.



It's way more detailed than the older super-sized Falcon, and has over 7000 pieces, making it the largest Lego set ever.

Too bad it's expensive as fuck.

Do children get an allowance; I heard they were going start that right around when I stopped being a kid, and my parents put me into the workforce, so I could help pay for the tunafish for mac and cheese and peas.  it's a really good recipe and in college one of my friends suggested it would be better if you poured dill seasoning on it and he turned out to be right then he married my sister a couple years later and I built a ghost pirate ship and raised a ninja army of kittens back in those days I had my pick of six beds so I would sleep in whichever room and sometimes I'd lay down in two beds in one day one of the rooms had a bed across from a bed and that's how the summer was until the winter of cold when people came to live in the ghost pirate ship where we burned candles and opened cans and I walked many miles.  That was at least two lifetimes ago before we lived with the dogs and the children when I met a rap master murderer because he had brought us food from the long christmas

UnrealLegend.  Here is what you do:

Find the set on LEGO's website.  Now, you'll notice its release is for 1 October, so you'll have to wait a bit.  But not to buy it, but for the next part of the plan.  Write down its Lot ID: 75192.

Now, once that has happened, go to Bricklink.com and search for that lot ID.  You may think this is a cheaper way of getting the set?  Well, yes, but not because we are buying the set!

I will illustrate this with the last largest Millennium Falcon set.

As you can clearly gather from the items for sale, this is still an expensive set.  But ignore the 'items for sale' tab, instead click 'set inventory'.

Now, UnrealLegend, this is going to be a lot of manual labour, but you will also save a lot of money.  Using the set inventory, you can order all the bricks from other dealers (because BrickLink is a site for people to sell LEGO bricks), and the sets tend to be worth more than the sum of their parts.

Try to make sure you order as many bricks from as few dealers as possible, as that reduces shipping cost, but you will have to arrange it between quite a few dealers.

This is how I ended up building the old Millennium Falcon, and how I am considering getting my hands on the new one.  Hopefully, a lot of the bricks I got for the old one can still be used to build the new one.

Personally, I thought it was a fun adventure trying to find all these dealers and getting good deals on the bricks.  I ended up spending around half - two thirds of the asking price for a new set.  And the search for bricks and dealers was part of the fun itself, at least to me.

I'm aware that bricklinking will make it cheaper (especially because here it's a whopping $1300 AUD) but it'll still end up being super expensive due to the sheer volume of pieces.

HOWEVER, I don't actually want this monster, because I have nowhere to put it.

I'd blow so many on the 75159 UCS Death Star if I just had space for it. It's been my "dream set" for as long as I can remember (well, 10188 was, until 75159 came along).

That's probably closer to the truth; he probably feels he would get more utility out of the money by placing it elsewhere.

Money is little more than a tool to me; what good is a tool which does not produce?  It could also be considered art.  That said, I find money to be an absurd creation; what is more absurd, however, is that so many people are willing to agree wholesale the tenets and dogma of this inferior framework; to take this systemic absurdity even further is what we say with one mouth, we do opposite-wise with our hands.

[edit]

Oh, and now it's apparently being blown all out of proportion. Presumably by people who can neither read nor think. And by those entities to whom clicks flood in like no tomorrow when they manufacture a controversy.

Also, am I failing to comprehend a key fact somewhere? A couple of minutes ago I read some news on Trailergate and thought I saw that advance tickets were about to go on-sale. For a movie that doesn't come out until mid-December??

[/edit]

I am not watching or listening to even a second of the trailers if I can help it!

And I just now remembered that I'd had a bit of Star Wars in a dream the other night. I think I was trying to "align" a lightsaber. Whatever that means smile

I was thinking that I might skip the trailer but then I thought, what's the point? It's gonna be unavoidable on social media and YouTube thumbnails, and play in front of other movies at the cinema.

It didn't feel like it spoiled much. Gives more of idea on what the story's about compared to the other one, and the only real potential spoilery material looks deliberately misleading.
