Thought it was worth having a discussion thread set up for this movie, as it comes out imminently across the world. Spoiler-goggles on!
Although they have said this will be the first Star Wars film without the text 'crawl'. The 'anthology' films won't have them.
I know. That doesn't mean our thread can't have them.
I set the rules here Wallace. We have no truck with rebel factions.
Or did I mean...
Post redacted, setback for the rebellion!
Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to edit a post is insignificant next to the power of the Force.
I may happen to know one of the editors on the film.
I believe the logic is that the main films tell an ongoing saga, the anthology ones are one-offs. They will retain a lot of the other Star Wars tropes.
Yes, Kathleen Kennedy confirmed it a while ago.
I can see the reason in it, it sets them apart from the core movies.
Ya. I almost called him out with that post.
Hasn't every other Star Wars thing including animated shows and even Ewok films had an opening scroll though? It seems a bit odd to pick now to make the distinction.
They reset all that stuff after Disney bought Lucasfilm.
Have the current Star Wars cartoons not used the opening scroll? I thought they did.
I have been watching Star Wars Rebels...they don't have the scroll.
Well fuck. I'm wrong then.
Nice thread crawl.
Hey, did that really just happen? Men don't admit when they're wrong.
This place is weird.
Anyway, carry on; stay on target.
I try to. I'm far from perfect but I try.
