Looks like TROS is on track to catch up to and possibly surpass TLJ.

Guess this proves that this series is not only critic-proof, but that fan response has actually been better this time.

Cats is up to $18.1 million this week. Doing way better than I thought it would.

Is there a book on Wedge that is considered Canon between VI and IX?

He appears as a supporting character in the Aftermath trilogy (right after Endor) and in Resistance Reborn (between VIII and IX). You learn a little about his military career post-Endor and his family

It's nothing short of amazing to go back and look at TFA's day-by-day gross in 2015. It went 17 days before making less than $20 million per day.

My current top 3:
1. ESB
2. ANH
3. ROTS

This seems like it might end up being the same as the Fan Rankings. (Though I bet ROTJ probably gets #3.)

By the way, this latest marathon was the first time I ever saw ANH theatrical version. (In HD quality, too.)

This might be part of the reason why I have it ranked higher than ROTS now. That awful Jabba scene might have been doing more harm than I realized. And that chemistry between Luke/Han/Leia is just pitch perfect.

We've come a long way from this picture.

And yet it was only 5 years ago. Crazy how much has happened in that time...

Annd current BoxOfficeTheory projections puts final domestic projections at $500 million, and might miss $1billion worldwide completely. Hoping it reaches a bil at a min but it's not looking great at all.

$1B is guaranteed.

The jabba scene is one of the worst additions. No new information about plot or characters, exactly the same dialogue, awful CGI. Baffling, and one of the main reasons I snagged a DVD copy of the theatrical versions a few years ago.

Here is the worst addition.
Brian Earl Spilner

Off the top of my head:

Worst changes:
1. Jabba in ANH
2. Unnecessary dewbacks and other animals obnoxiously walking in front of camera in ANH
3. Vader's "No" in ROTJ
4. Luke's scream when falling in ESB (Which is clearly just Palpatine's scream)
5. Vader's badass "Bring my shuttle" line in ESB changed to that completely un-needed line. Why in the world change this? What was wrong with that line? It's so awesome and concise, and gets the point across that Vader is pissed.

Best changes:
1. Replacing Yub Nub with the Celebration music. (Yes, Yub Nub sucks. No, you won't change my mind.)
2. Everything in Cloud City looks SO much better in the SE. Especially when they're walking in the corridors.
3. Replacing that awful puppet Yoda with digital Yoda in TPM.
4. Replacing the rando Emperor with the monkey eyes with Ian McDiarmid.
5. All of the opening crawls look much better.

Well, Rise of the Resistance was awesome. We were worried our boarding time wasn't going to be called before they shut it down for the day, but we made it.

It's funny, bc I felt weird being in regular clothes as the resistance or first order are role playing the whole thing. I took some photos on my phone, but I can't get them resized or posted right now.

Are you saying the Disney+ version of ANH is the theatrical version?

Nope.

The worst addition is the dance number in Return of the Jedi. Just terrible. Also Hayden Christiansen force ghost. It seems like ROTJ got a lot of changes and most of them were bad. I've never understood why a lot of people rank it low, I'm thinking now it's because they have only seen the *******ized version and not the original. Yub Nub forever.

I have the DVD set too. The discs with the special editions have never been touched.

I like this as much as Anakin likes sand.

I prefer them not meet between Obi Wan leaving Anakin limbless and for dead and meeting again on the Deathstar.


Then again, i've been known to be wrong.... from time to time.

This is my complaint about the star wars movies and what I enjoyed about the mandalorian.

There have to be more than 20 or 30 characters in the whole ****ing galaxy.

I expect there to be some jaba in the obi-wan series but I dont want much of anything else from the saga movies.

Pretty sure it would just be flashbacks.

I really wish We Got This Covered could be banned from linking to on TexAgs. I know you clarified with "grain of salt," but they're clickbait trash who throws massive amounts of sh*t against the wall, who no one takes even remotely seriously. I don't know how many times I've had to dispel that POS site here on this board.
