And booster seats in the Falcon!

 

Okay, I'm done. The kid has clearly had a rough enough time of it doing this movie. I'm sure Howard will straighten things out and the kid will be just fine.

 

edit: Damn yous, Freeman!

I just love the things I love!"
 
I kind of feel like someone should play that clip repeatedly to Katherine Kennedy when it comes to these stand-alone movies. Rogue One had a story I was interested in but I don't care where Han Solo got his jacket from or how he met Chewie. All I know is that he's cool as fuck in the original trilogy. 


"Do you like ice cream?  Well here's some rock salt!"

 

I love that monologue.

Warning: Potential Easter Egg Spoiler! (Click to show)
Apparently on one of the sets there's a glass case with the Ark of the Covenant, Kali with Shankara Stones, the Holy Grail and a Crystal Skull.

Crystal skull? Is LucasFilm shoehorning aliens into this franchise? FUCK.
post #1408 of 1432
Don't believe you're supposed to post unsactioned set photos here Barry. The legal ramifications tend to give Nick heart palpitations.

Eh, if it's real, anyway.
post #1409 of 1432

Yeah, c'mon - posting stuff like that, or even links to it, has been a no no for as long as this site's been around.

post #1410 of 1432

They're not going to try to file legal claims against every single person linking to a youtube vid, they'd just get the vid taken down.

post #1411 of 1432

It was just a link to an episode of Collider's Jedi Council discussing the Star Wars news of the day, which included that tidbit. They're a legit YouTube show for a legit movie news site that also posted an article about the same story (as did every other film related blog out there). Nevertheless, I deleted the link so I don't end up frozen in carbonite.

So anyway, I guess there's going to be some fanboy pandering in this Disney Wars movie.

If it's background detail, I'm fine with it.  No one lost their minds about Artoo and Threepio on the wall of the Well of Souls or "Club Obi Wan" in Temple of Doom.

The alien skull in PREDATOR 2 was a cool, fun easter egg.  If these things are in there in a similar, background fashion and aren't actually touched upon via action or dialog, I'm fine with it.

Howard's been offering peeks at the film pretty much every day on his Twitter and Instagram. And today... young Lando, who appears to be in the Falcon cockpit and rockin' a pretty sweet yellow shirt.

Per SW's Twitter, John Powell is doing the score. I can dig it.
post #1419 of 1432

Good choice.  It will be interesting to hear how close he strays to the Williams sound; given that the movie is unlikely to call for many thematic quotations of past themes (since Han, Chewie, and Lando do not have themes in the original trilogy), I would expect the vast, vast majority of the score to be new material.  Even more than Giacchino's (great) ROGUE ONE score.

POWELL IS BACK!!!!

How I missed him.

We're getting closer and closer to Willow II: The Peck Awakens!

Make it happen Kathleen Kennedy! Val Kilmer is sure to be free. And a CGI Billy Barty!!

Clint Howard to appear in this, of course.

THE CHRONICLES OF MEDMARTIGAN AND PECK

 

I'd be all over that.  Think Joan Whalley would cameo?

It was probably in Ron's contract.

post #1425 of 1432

I've always understood and assumed that Ron Howard was one of the few directors in Hollywood that is almost devoid of an ego and is one of the kindest, most gracious men in the business. I never had ill will towards him taking this movie on and getting Clint into this should make it hate-proof.

 

I hope he gets a good makeup job.

post #1426 of 1432

I've never really understood the Clint Howard love and assume I must have somehow missed that one role that made him prolific to people. When someone says they're a Bruce Campbell fan, I think back to how many times I watched Evil Dead 2 as a young adult and know instantly why they're a fan.  When someone mentions that they love Jeffrey Combs, I look across to my copy of From Beyond or think about his great work on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and I completely understand. Crispin Glover, Lance Henriksen, Eric Roberts.... I get why these guys have cult fanbases. But Clint Howard? What was it that endeared him to people, because I probably need to watch it. Was it that one where he's a killer ice cream man?

Obviously it's the one where a bipedal young carnivorous dinosaur ate his face off in front of a chicken coup truck in Carnosaur.

Ha, that lifetime achievement award was awesome. More award ceremonies should just have fun like that. I used to watch Gentle Ben when I was younger but remember very little about it. I guess I've somehow just missed most of the stuff that endeared him to others. His IMDb page reads like a list of things I've not seen (and the stuff I have, I don't remember him so his role must have been tiny).

post #1432 of 1432

It's the fact he looks as odd as he does but pops up in all these roles for small and big movies (mostly Ron Howard directed big movies). He's the ultimate underdog actor who, on the surface, has no business being in movies but does. Like he says in the video, people get a kick out of seeing him in things. He certainly stands out.
