    Thanks for the news rundown, I appreciate your efforts and that’s why I have my adblocker off for you, even if some of the ads are kinda weird 😉

    • September 24, 2016 at 1:57 am

      Ads I think are tailored to your personal search history so what have you been googling to warrant such weird ads lol.

      • September 27, 2016 at 5:54 pm

        What, you spying on me? :p Seriuosly, this PC is family PC, very clean, huge clean, wonderful clean, and I still see ads for weird stories

    based on life debt i’m betting fett is alive. the sarlacc died almost immediately after he went in so he should have been able to escape.

    • September 24, 2016 at 1:41 am

      Based on life debt, he seems to be dead and some dude has his armor.

      • September 24, 2016 at 2:01 am

        nope, nope, nope. game of thrones didn’t fool me with jon snow and i won’t bite here. until they equivocally state that fett is dead, he’s not dead. besides, unless wendig really loves the rancor trainer, that scene is completely pointless if its not teasing fett’s return.

        • September 24, 2016 at 5:57 pm

          we shall see.

    Great fan film, thanks for posting it! What really struck me was the muffled sound effects heard inside wherever they were standing. I hope Rogue One gives that same feeling. Well done!

  • September 24, 2016 at 5:45 am

    Wow… Those three guys in the fan film had to carry that entire scene and they did a pretty bang up job. I really liked it.

    Just thought I’d post this here in case some of my fellow Star Wars fans were interested in helping fund my original short film. Just follow the link to see what the project is all about and if you are interested in donating. Help fund the future of film!

    There is a new rebels trailer on twitter!

    At first, I thought Oscar’s reading of Guiness’s letter was pretentious and snobbish (not because of anything Isaac did, but because of Guiness’s words). It still may smack of superiority and judgement, but it seemed to soften a bit at the end. What initially sounded like an indictment of Ford, kind of turned into the most unlikely and unexpected compliment. Almost as if Alec could tell way back when that Ford was going to become a big star. Very strange, all of that was.

      He’s just an old respected actor wondering how in the heck did I end up here? What is this nonsense. Oh well… it’s a job. Man did he like to write though. For a letter it almost seemed like he was attempting a novel. If that’s how people use to write letters no wonder people read them! 😛

    i went to check out that in defense of the prequels preview and was very surprised to find the comments and like/dislikes disabled. how are you engendering a discussion that way? or was that not the point?

    • September 26, 2016 at 7:21 am

      No, the point was to shine a turd and keep out the meanie heads who dared to not love every minute of the prequels.
