So is that how Carrie Fisher got pregnant? It made FARK just the other day
 
2014-09-04 02:03:12 AM  
The best thing to ever happen to Lucas was his (now ex) wife's bloodthirsty editing of that movie. If it had been left as Lucas had originally intended it, it would have died a horrible death in the theaters.

I don't believe it was a girlfriend or some chick trying to hitch a ride.
I prefer to think Han had a girl on every port.

It was in the novelization. I remember reading him "sending away the wench wriggling on his lap" or words to that effect. I thought Alan Dean Foster had taken liberties with the story.

Now I hope footage of Luke saying the line, "What's a duck?" shows up some time.

Huh. Turns out the actress had a bunch of uncredited bit roles on "Space 1999".

It doesn't set the same tone for him. I'm sure if they'd left it in, there would be some han solo golddigger meme about his wife that he left for a princess.

Yeah, it was never suggested that Han may have been in it for the money. There was no goldigger subplot

I still laugh to think how many people the 'Parsecs' line went past, and nobody stopped it before it became permanent.

The actual script has instructions for Obi-Wan to react with something like, "roll eyes at dumbass who doesn't know what a parsec is."

I've never seen anything so awkward as when they tried to "explain" the whole thing in one of the followup novels. It was pretty bad.

Written for the published script after the fact. One of the more subtle changes to the later editions is inserting a shot of Alec Guinness looking skeptical, but it's not there in the original.

Well, I never knew of its existence before reading the article, so it was technically new to me.

Interestingly, the same article mentioned that it was officially released to the public 16 years ago, rendering your post as unnecessarily redundant to me as the article itself was to you.

So, congratulations on being the guy who comes in to the thread to make a point that is covered in the article, as if he thinks he's the only one who knows.

According to this, it was in the 1976 draft.  It could have been Lucas backdating it, though.

It was Mos Eisley. She was a hooker.
 
2014-09-04 12:57:06 PM  
So long as it's a Star Wars thread...

OK, Obi-Wan "Ben" Kenobi was indeed wise..most of the time, but he was wrong a couple of times, big time.

"He's more machine than man."   Wrong, beardo!  Vader was always secretly more man than machine as the climax of Return of the Jedi proved well.


Also, viewing ESB without the "benefit" of the prequels, you must admit that Vader's deal to Luke-to join him, dethrone the Emperor and stop the war-was a good deal, except for the whole dark side thing...but still.
 
2014-09-04 01:08:44 PM  
Right before that scene she was in a threesome with Han Solo and Greedo. But Han arrived at the cantina earlier than Greedo did..because Han shot first.

That was such a good headline. I asked subbby if (s)he had just been waiting for some opportunity to use 'Carrie Fisher' when Carrie Underwood married that dude. No response, though. Nothing wrong with waiting for the exact right minute to launch a joke, though.

Oh look a shocking reveal of something that was revealed with the star wars collectable card game and people had known about for over 10 years, but since TFA writer didn't he now gets to write a story about it

Maybe people should Listen to the Radio Drama. and really get their mind blown with the extra content that happened before the movie
Luke listening to Imperial recruitment tape
Luke Talking to Cammy about his dreams about his real parents
Luke racing Fixer in beggars canyon
Luke meeting Biggs at Tosche Station

And that doesn't even cover the Liea storyline

The best is the ESB radio drama has a whole scene with Han and Luke in the survival shelter

Luke: Han... what is that smell?
Han: *laughs* You

It was. Sorry you're jealous that you missed it.


Been working on that off and on, the editing is brutal, but once it's done, you'll probably realize how wrong you are.

Anyway, beware of wipes and dissolves in the original trilogy, often they point to an edit, like when Moff Jefferod walks away from Vader in ROTJ, the scene continues seamlessly in the original version, which Lucas himself forgot about. (presented later as new footage to fans at a convention)

At the drive-in at which I saw ROTJ in 1983, it had the scene of Vader contacting Luke with the force, then onto Luke completing his lightsaber. I remember because as a kid I thought it was funny how Vader sounded just like he did in Empire, at the end where he was also using the force to contact Luke.


Instead of arguing with haters, I'm working on getting the original, original Star Wars done, and along with the original, original Return of the Jedi. (plus two other versions, an "Imperial version" for ROTJ and a "Marvel Comic" version for SW, which would be all scenes plus original human Jabba and a cut Vader and Chief Bast scene which occurs consecutively in the comic, the book, but cut from the final film.


I have the smoking gun proof that there was indeed the version I talked about!

I even posted it on Fark before. Star Wars Insider published the fact, plain as day that those scenes were cut out. Cut. Out. :)

And you ignore countless posts around the Internet which state that said version was shown at a drive-in and other venues.  Some say it was shown at 9 theaters, total. I tend to believe it.

Disbelieve it? So sorry for you, but as a kid I was thrilled at the "first" special edition of Star Wars, if you will because CBS advertised the crap out of it for a good two weeks ahead of time at least.  They even played the part where Biggs used the binoculars in the promos.

Oh, can't find the promos so they don't exist?   Lots of things exist that are not explicitly shown or upload to the 'net.

So WHY?   Like I've already stated: Lucas dislikes the original, original version even more than what has been selling as the "original version."

:)

Happy to have typed that out, not simply for the doubter, but for anyone else that has been following this since the Star Wars Insider days of the early to middle 1990s, where at least three letters were published, making the same correct claims.


P.S. Never have I stated, nor has anyone else, that any of the mentioned versions have been for sale on video anywhere.

Ishkur: How long before a certain farker shows up to try and convince us that this scene was inserted into a version of the film that showed once on television back in 1982?


This was common practice back then so that the network could capitalize on the idea of "never before seen" material. See also the MANY extra scenes that the network put back in Superman when it was first shown on TV, most of which disappeared again until fairly recently as deleted scene extras on DVDs (for example, Lex Luthor's "babies" that Otis has to feed).

While I do not recall the scene in question being in the TV broadcast of Star Wars, it COULD have been and it would be easy to believe.

The tone of your comment makes me think you doubt this happened, in which case you would be wrong and you can easily look the practice up online to see for yourself.

Thank you!

I forgot about the Superman example. The death of the boy at the cow town was doubted for years until it showed up on youtube. Last I checked it's up, but edited into it was some guy making jokes, but it's still there.

Ishkur: gshepnyc: The tone of your comment makes me think you doubt this happened, in which case you would be wrong

Saying I'm wrong doesn't make me wrong. Providing proof does. Thus far, in two years of threadjacking Star Wars threads with his incessant drivel and stupid conspiracy theories, Mr. SuperStarTrekFan#1 over there has yet to do so.

Also: He's a white supremacist. But that's as irrelevant as pointing out there are separate versions of Superman going around (which I agree with because I've seen them. There is proof they exist. Not the case with Star Wars, a movie that had a much more explosive impact on the public conscience and attracted an obsessive completist fan-base that collected, saved and recorded farking EVERYTHING...... except this).


If that were true, there would be plenty of bootleg versions of the Droids and Ewoks series available. I've pieced together a few of them from Youtube and DailyMotion, but have never found a complete source for them. That's the only reason I'll entertain walktoanarcade's claims - surprisingly few copies of one-off and special broadcasts from that era are readily available.

What would be more convincing is actually seeing a TV Guide or newspaper or any other ad about that specific broadcast. I've looked online plenty of times, and even talked to some greybeards at the regional cons (where there's always some dude who used to work in a tape room). Nothing ever confirms or disproves that footage hitting the airwaves. So maybe it did broadcast once or twice that way, or maybe some fans are just mentally combining scenes from the audio dramas with the finished stills in the books and trading cards.

Either way, it would be kinda cool to see broadcast-quality missing Tattooine scenes from Star Wars or Jedi, or the Wampa attack from Empire.

Those are coming. Not officially, though.

I have all the Droids, but not Ewoks.
 
2014-09-04 02:23:06 PM  
So, one thing doesn't prove another, as has been pointed out to me, but the truth is that I have all 13 episodes of Droids plus the special-and I saw the version of Star Wars in 1982.

If there's a secure way to send them to you sometime, I'd glad to do it. Or upload them somewhere.
