Ahmed Best Talks To Wired

July 15, 2017

If you ever want to remind yourself of what went horribly wrong with “geek” culture and fandom, and why Disney today unveiled a crapload of  remakes, reboots, and projects based off of popular attractions (I for one cannot wait for “FastPass:  The Movie”), just read Wired’s new interview with Ahmed Best.

Wired is of course just as guilty as the rest of the pig pile of persecutors and it doesn’t sound like the author is much of a fan though he begrudgingly admits TPM isn’t the childhood rapist it was made out to be.  I have to say the change in tone though is in no small part in response to the rise of /r/prequelmemes and fans of the prequels making themselves known.

Plus, Best sounds like a smart, interesting guy.

You’ve Got To Read J.W. Rinzler’s Blog

July 13, 2017

The author of “The Making of Revenge Of The Sith,” “The Making of (the OT),” and other books is now recounting his days at Lucasfilm 2001-2015 at his blog.  It’s a fascinating insider’s account at what it was like working there during the last decade or so of it being George Lucas’s company.  It’s honest and no-holds-barred without being mean, gossipy, or bitter. Get the inside skinny on the good and bad of an almost idyllic work environment, how certain projects came to be, and his impressions of folks like Lucas or prequels producer Rick McCallum (with many more to come, I’m sure).  I have a feeling that the closer the blog gets to the Disney era, the juicier it will get.

The entries (The Rise and Fall of Star Wars) are updated Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Update #1: The blog went 404 sometime yesterday evening my time and as of yet isn’t back up. The rest of the site is still there. Rinzler has as of yet not addressed the issue, whether it’s a technical/server problem or if he was asked to take his entries down.

Naboo News has summaries and excerpts from prequel-related posts from Rinzler’s blog in case you missed them.

Update #2:  Rinzler suddenly cancelled an appearance scheduled for tomorrow on the Star Wars Junk podcast.  It seems to me somebody told him to stop blogging.

Update #3:  Get this cached link to all 12 of the original entries and save them, quick!

Would Joel Edgerton Play Owen Again?

June 8, 2017

Gee, what do you think?

My idea is that he could go out and have some adventure and then he comes back and slips back into that unassuming moisture farmer role,” Edgerton said. “Everyone talks about Obi-Wan being super cool, Owen secretly knows that he was there, and he did some of the cool s—, too.”
