Well we are talking about fictional universe and fictional characters so it isn’t that far of a stretch to have fictional explanations.

I don't see how Human/Wookiee inability to properly speak each others native languages would be a problem with comprehending them. Admittedly, this whole thing is -completely- irrelevant, but still, the point stands.

@ mstr kenobi: Only it doesn't work that way because it's Star Wars, it's in a galaxy far, far away and it's fiction. Also, apparently Han Solo and the Jedi aren't average people

"But, I can't, there's not a scientific enough explanation based in reality for me to think such a thing even exists! Also, you shouldn't even be able to tell me that since you're dead! I call shenanigans on this entire thing and I'm going home!"

This isn't the 'big announcement' (at least I hope it isn't), but it might be interesting to people. From Star Wars' Facebook page -

Well we are talking about fictional universe and fictional characters so it isnít that far of a stretch to have fictional explanations.
I get that, but when the force becomes the resolution/explanation to your small every day problems it's a bit ridiculous.


Anyway, this small issue doesn't stop me from enjoying the movies, i just think it's something of a stretch.

It does stop me from enjoying Kashyyk in KOTOR, because that ever looping sound gives me a headache.

Back to the OP Topic:

I hope they release it with just the movies in HD, because all the extras are, safe to say, Absolute garbage, I have no interest whatsoever in "Making of" documentaries and audio commentary. Now if they had announced what additions/subtractions/retouches they had applied to the Films I could get excitable about this...

Details

Don't get me wrong,

Blu-Ray= Awesome
Star Wars= Pretty Good (Used to be Awesome, but I cry a lot nowadays)
All in one set= yay
Announcement= well, we knew it was out on Blu-ray, and would probably still have all the extras from the DVD releases... what was announced?

I too am disappointed with the extras. Specially the lack of prequel content, and that disc 9 almost full of garbage.

I'm only curious to see the list of deleted/alternate scenes they included this time; The rest of the discs (1-6 & 9) don't disappoint me.

Well, here's the OT & PT covers (from the official video on the May the 4th Be With You site):



Personally, I find them very nice; But, I'm more interested in seeing the Saga set's cover art. Any other thoughts on these covers?

The Complete Saga

The Prequel Trilogy

The Original Trilogy

I do like the individual covers.

For me, this'll be the last Star Wars set I'll be getting. Not getting the 3D ones that'll eventually come out and not gonna bother with getting any newer format version of it beyond Blu-ray because it's pointless, unless it's like some kind of technology that's pretty much a Holodeck out of Star Trek.


@ mstr kenobi: I was seeing how far you'd take it.

The Hitler discussion was pretty tame compared to the debate the were having a few months ago about whether or not an EU character had raped another EU character.

Don't quote me on this, but I think that issue refers to something that happened in the LOTF novel Invincible. If I'm right, the characters in question are Ben (Luke's son) and Tahiri (Jacen's apprentice). Needless to say, the whole thing is a ridiculous over-extrapolation.

Oh, yeah. Tahiri molests Ben. I don't know the precise details, but there is definitely some hands in the pants. So I guess the question was 'Is Tahiri guilty of rape, or just 'inappropriate touching?'

If Kavar's got like that, I wouldn't even bitch about the deletion. It'd be like forum chemo.
