I saw the wheelbarrow.  I had a few figs in hand for my son, but the line was insane.  I'll go back today to see if it is any better.

I did happen to get the new Sandie and a Bespin Leia from TRU during their sale.

The way the rumor mill is really gearing up has me jazzed for Star Wars in a way since I haven't been since TPM came out.  Better yet is the final destination of this story is not determined, unlike the PT.

I think Joe Johnston is an ideal pick.  He's proven himself on a big-budget blockbuster, he has proven that he can work with an FX heavy movie, and he has history with the franchise.

Edit: another thought going off of the 20th Century Fox fanfare. I doubt John Williams would score the next trilogy, since he's got to be 80ish by now.
Ugh!  Perish the thought!  I can't imagine a SW movie without him scoring it.  Madness! 

On a seperate note... Just throwing this out there to spark some discussion...  With Hasbro producing toys for two of Disney's huge properties, do you think the Mouse House would ever look at buying a toy company to pull under their umbrella?  Who makes the Pixar toys now?

I'm all for clean slates.  Be honest.  Aside from a few moments, has this show really impressed you?

I agree with the sentiment that there needs to be more wars in the stars in Star Wars.

I wouldn't count on unaltered versions of the OT anytime soon.  In one of the articles about this whole thing was info on distribution rights.  Fox has all distro rights until 2020 and they have rights for ANH "in perpetuity."  So unless Disney and Fox reach some type of deal, it could be a long wait, or never, that we get to see any type of Saga release out of Disney.

There is no way Disney would have made this purchase unless there were already some agreement worked out for home video releases.  Remember, none of the films leading up to and including the Avengers were distributed by Disney.

Mickey Mouse's first order of business should be to cancel this bore-fest.

Bring it on, the Marvel guys thought the world was going to blow up when Disney jumped on board and since then the brand has gone from strength to strength

I think the same will happen here, I will always love my original trilogy, I can put up with the prequels and the clone wars animated show is great.
I don't need to see Harrison or Fisher in a new movie but seeing Hamill as the Jedi Master is something I have always wanted to see on the big screen.
There are so many possibilities that it's making me dizzy just thinking about it, as for killing EU it could be a whole new range of stories, that galaxy that is far far away that we all love is pretty dam big so the next trilogy could be about anything.

Me personally I'm just stoked about new starwars at the movies, xwings have been away from the screen for far too long :)

Well said.  If this had happened five years ago, I'd be down on it, but they have handled the Marvel property brilliantly (even the fanboyest of fanboys has to admit that) and hopefully they can do that for SW.

One thing I am shocked no one has mentioned...  Does this mean we can FINALLY get HD versions of the unaltered OT?

Sorry to hear about your loss.  I lost a cat about a month ago during the night.  She seemed a little strange the night before, and I planned on taking her in the next day, and she passed during the night.

Tackling the alcoholism aspect in the film would likely feel tacked on and I am sure many would feel that whatever resolution there would be to the story that it happens too fast to be realistic.  In comic, this kind of arc can be fleshed out for a long time.  In a movie of this nature, it would likely just seem silly.

I'd guess because many sellers prop up low prices with exorbitant shipping fees.  Smart shoppers look at the total cost, but I am sure there are plenty that don't (the crowd that calls a $4.98 item a $4 item).

Wow.  So awesome.  I wasn't sure if they'd actually show a decapitation on TV, but they did not disappoint.  That actress IS Michonne.

SS has recanted on making changes to his films.  He now feels that once they are out there, that's it.  That said, is there a definitive BD collection with all cuts of the film?  Does this set port over the extras?  Have they FINALLY presented the cut scenes, in their entirety, and not as part of a documentary?

Why don't the AAT's hatches lock from the inside?

And one of the reasons tanks have anti-personnel weapons is to prevent infantry from running up and attaching magnetic mines, etc. to the tank.

Then again, when have the AAT's ever used their weapons. They never use the hull rockets. Those nubs below the front hatch are lasers, too, according to the Episode 1 cutaway tech book.

So, yeah, we have the silly manuevors to make some "jock vs. nerd"/pissing contest scenes.
Why do the tanks even need a robot to drive them?  Why not hard wire that stuff right in.  It would be like building a drone to be flown by a seperately built craash test dummy.  Stupid, and an issue I have always had with the Separatist army.  Yet, the vultures are actual droids with no pilots.
