    That one they film all of the Mandalorian in. I can't remember what it's called. Room with giant screens.

    It's pretty cool. It's this giant room that takes the place of a green screen. They can project the background landscapes and other shit the that actors can react to ect.

    It has it's limitations, but it's pretty cool.

    It's great tech. But I just don't think it's a one size fits all situation.

    They used something similar for the new Batman movie and it looked great.

    It’s a good compromise between green screen and on location.

    Is Andor a prequel to Rogue One? And where does it fit on the movie/TV timeline?

    Why did Leia choose Han over Luke? I am pretty sure I didn’t miss any important parts but I might have forgotten. They seemed to have such great chemistry.

    Personally, they just keep making these movies so long and don’t match my normal cable experience. So I watch it for about 22 minutes and then I need a commercial break. I go to YouTube and click rapidly between videos, not choosing Skip Ads and then clicking away whenever the actual YouTube video starts. I do this for a few hours and then pick it back up the next day.

    Went to Disneyland. Smuggler’s Run was like playing Overcooked with people for the first time, very fun. But Rise of the Resistance… mind blowing, how? So amazing.

    My fiancée had a stormtrooper come up to us and she got him with the “there’s something on your shirt” move and he looked down and she flicked up to the helmet’s nose. I felt bad for the cast member, he’s just a human playing a space Nazi, poor guy.

    When I did RotS I felt like I was about 6 years old again. My wife has a custom frame with “Best Day Ever” that used to have our wedding photo but when she saw the pictures of me in there she replaced the photo and said she understands.

    Usually 2-3 with my son. We start when his little sister goes to bed and watch until his bedtime. Find natural break points and it is basically like watching the TV shows. Been doing this since quarantine started March 2020 for most MCU and SW content. These movies are way too long for a 7-9 year old to watch in one sitting at night. Rogue One is an easy 3 nights of 45 minutes each.

    We go to the theater for some of the bigger movies, i.e, Episodes 7-9 and Spider-Man: No Way Home.

    The kid had a mini freak out because 30 mins before our LL started we got the text that it was shut down. Our travel agent texted a minute later saying it breaks down every other day and they would send us an anytime LL pass which they did. When the transport doors open and you get that reveal, it’s hard not to feel like a kid.

    Still blows my mind Kathleen Kennedy keeps her job. She's burned through half of Hollywood's directors and barely put out anything. I'm sure in a year will be hearing how Taika's movie isn't happening.

    She’s taken one of the most cinematic film series is all time and made it TV exclusive. The TV is great, but Marvel is busy doing both while Lucasfilm seems content giving up on the film experience.

    They blamed Star Wars fatigue for below average box office but it was bad film making. A lot of which is her fault for not having any vision.

    And now they are just mining this same old tired time period where we basically know everything that happened. Just waiting for the story about the Emperor's gardener at this point.

    It's a combination of things.

    1. Disney wanted to turn Star Wars into a second Marvel, not appreciating that, before their acquisition, Star Wars was a "once a generation" sort of special attraction, not yearly release sort of thing.

    2. They went into the trilogy with a quick turnaround plan for an episode every other year, as opposed to one every three years, then hired a plurality of writers and directors without any impetus to coordinate their stories.

    3. The whole franchise is overseen by a producer who can't do the one job a producer is hired to do: make the movies happen. Directors keep getting fired, release dates keep getting pushed, and projects keep getting canceled.

    The franchise has shrunk so far so fast. It's gone from being a generational film franchise that appealed to all filmgoers to a streaming TV franchise that only matters to its hard-core fan base.

    nonsense, the OT has been regularly aired on basic cable for going on four decades now; there is nothing intrinsic about Star Wars that limits it to a trilogy a decade when the MCU can pop out two+ blockbusters a year. Star Wars attractions and merchandising held up for years. The problem is solely in story design and execution. Feige went through five decades of comic books and excellently wove together stories that had already been written. There isn’t the same volume of Star Wars source material (and it’s very uneven in quality), and the creative minds they put in charge were/are not up for the challenge of creating a coherent (much less compelling) story.
