So I have started Return of the Jedi.
I am watching the Despecialized versions.
Was Return of the Jedi ALWAYS called "Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi"?
I know for a fact that ANH was originally just called "Star Wars".
Yeah, I noticed this with Empire as well. So, I can trust the despecialized versions in being accurate as far as this goes? People seeing ROTJ in theatres for the first time in 1983 saw "EPISODE VI: RETURN OF THE JEDI"?
Episode V seemed despecialized (I could tell because the special effects were shit/primitive).
That's too bad honestly. The pack came with all three prequel movies. Hm.
I'll just watch it anyway.
Excellent. I'll keep watching.
So, was the writing in ROTJ always alien writing or was it English originally?
I have never seen Star Wars before you fucking cunt. Leave me the fuck alone. I'm asking questions here.
Okay. I ask because ANH had some English if I recall correctly.
By the way guys, TE WANNA WANGA?
Not me. I mean, they speak English! They also use words specific to us: Yoda has trained Jedi for 800 years (meaningless in a world where travel to other planets is casual).
The exhaust port on the Death Star was 2 meters wide.
Obviously they aren't speaking or reading English - it's just English so we understand them. Third person omniscient. Or, that's how I always saw it.
Yes, Empire and Jedi have always had the episode numbers.
Episode IV: A New Hope was added for the first movie's 1981 theatrical re-release.
What is the explanation for Luke coming after either of his droids? Why not come at the same time or just alone? He did not need to endanger any of his friends in order to get Solo back.
Any particular reason?
Yoda said last movie that essentially believing = performance. If he was strong enough in the force, believed enough, why couldn't he manipulate any mind, including Jabba's? What makes Jabba's so special? I realize this didn't happen because there needs to be an exciting action sequence coming up, but still.
Why can't he use force powers? Yoda leads me to believe that believing = success. He choked two guards coming in here. Why not choke this big monster? Why not force push it or levitate it? Why not force jump back up, like he did on Bespin? His training is complete now and he's much stronger in the force. Why not... you know, use it?
He probably couldn't levitate it because it's too big and heavy, plus there's not really much time to concentrate and tune into the Force when there's a 12 foot tall maneating monster coming after you. Also the gate's closed so he can't jump back up.
wrong. he had already wrote all 9 parts but took 4 5 and 6 to the studios. he then narrowed it down to 4.
there are also interviews where hamill and fisher are saying that after esb and jedi that lucas intends to do prequels and eventually sequels.
Are yo me I just watch Star Wars for the first time the other day. Despecialized all the way.
