ok so this completely nerdy but....

In 1999 my wife and I were young and dating when we saw TPM in the theater.

In 2002 we were young and married when we saw AOTC in the theater.

In 2005 she was pregnant with our first one when we saw ROTS in the theater.

For the record, for those who still buy physical media like myself, I would NOT purchase this new batch of releases, rumored to be dropping in September. It's just the same ol' Blu-rays in new packaging. And even if you don't have the movies on Blu-ray, but want them, the gist of the story I pasted above is that the mega saga release will be dropping in 2020 (assuming April), in 4K, likely with other new bells and whistles. Next month's drop is nothing more than one last cash grab before the saga ends, plain and simple.
I mean, even if you were big on having the collection why would people buy this now when we're literally waiting on the last film in the series to drop a few months later? Seems like an odd choice by the studio.

when she told you she was pregnant, did she start off by saying "something wonderful has happened" ?

No. I drug her to all three prequels and she hated them.

Because they know there's a sizable enough audience who will buy these just to catch up on all the movies / do one last rewatch before IX. A lot of people are going to be motivated to buy before IX as opposed to after, when the set is complete and there's nothing to "prepare" for. Also, the saga set obviously won't be ready by Christmas. Tons of people will buy these movies over the holidays as well.

STAR WARS RESISTANCE: WATCH THE TRAILER FOR THE SECOND AND FINAL SEASON OF THE SERIES

And I wouldn't use the word "bombing", attendance is lower than expected.

Oh. I thought he was talking about RISE OF THE Resistance, considering the Galaxy's Edge comment immediately after.

Disneyland blocked out passholders all summer. Disney World will give a much better indication of the land's actual popularity.

Trailer looks good actually I just wish they would make the main character not a bumbling idiot.

It's 10:51 p.m., I've got about 3 more hours of work before hitting the hay, and I just loaded up all 8 soundtracks. Headphones on, suddenly a dull night seems like a treat to my very favorite place.

"The Death of Ben Kenobi" now playing. Run, Luke!

This. It would be so much better if they dropped the slapstick.

I mentioned this to a friend of mine but even though the series is credited as being created by Filoni, Resistance does not have the feeling of a Filoni quality show so I'm not entirely sure that he was really involved in it like he was with Rebels and TCW. Not to mention that he was also working on The Mandalorian and the return of TCW.

I seem to remember that Kiri Hart was credited with creating some of the core characters. Not sure why that sticks out to me.

I don't know how credible this is, but with the other thread about Disney eviscerating Star Wars, I thought this might perk up the fanboys.

I seem to remember when the first trailer dropped for the first season Filoni tweeting or saying something that implied he didn't have anything to do with it.

My kid said it was lame, so we didn't watch Resistance after Episode 1. It didn't seem like it was going to be on the same level as Rebels.

I would agree with that assessment. I watched the premier and then tried to watch the next episode. Got distracted, didn't finish it, never came back to it. Forgot when the show aired.

I stuck with it and it definitely got better, but the main character never "matured" like in Rebels.

I wonder how many people were like me. I was in the area but didnt consider going because I thought it would be a crowded nightmare.

Last week Star Wars.com announced the release of The Secrets of the Jedi book for this November. I'm also happy to announce the TexAgs Star Wars Secret Santa program, and good news, BES, you are my secret santa and I want this book, please.


Even more exciting than all this friggin epic artwork is the fact that it's "written" by Luke and CONFIRMS that he continued to communicate with Yoda, Obi-Wan, and Anakin after their deaths until he shut himself off from the Force, but he could feel their presences again during the waning days of TLJ events. Makes me very hopeful of an Anakin/Vader ghost in TROS as was shown in gorgeous production art in TFA's art book.

""That knowledge was passed down to a select few, including Obi-Wan, Yoda, and my father. Their spirits guided me for many years but vanished when I shut myself off from the Force. It's a relief to feel their presence after all this time."

Force ghosts? Mother ****in Force ghosts? Well that's just mother ****in great. Not one of you inconsiderate mother ****ers thought I might want to be a Force ghost too? I mean **** all my black ass ended up doing was dying trying to kill mother ****in Darth Sidious to save The Republic. And your stupid ass "chosen one" chopped my mother ****in hands off before they threw my ****in ass out the mother ****in window. **** that mother ****er, he gets to be a Force ghost? **** all you mother ****ers.
