Wow it’s not?
You will be pleasantly surprised!
Filoni and Faverau clearly prove that Star Wars isn’t dead!
Glad to hear! :) No, Disney+ won't be available here in Sweden before fall. I haven't heard about a Blu-Ray release either so I guess they're holding out.

Re: What's the last book you read?

"Myten om Jesus" ("The Myth of Jesus") by the late professor Alvar Ellegård. Ellegård posited that Jesus is a mythical character and who was based on the Essene Teacher of Righteousness. I agree that Jesus was a mythical character, but I think the point is largely moot and that Jesus was based on th...

Re: Star Wars Episode VI Return of the Jedi

Sorry for the DP... I've been a stark defender of the Special Editions and later changes. However, I can't defend the latest changes made to ROTJ introduced in 2011. The door to Jabba's palace is just dumb and Vader's "Noooo" ruined the scene.

Re: Star Wars Episode IX (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

I've watched it thrice on Blu-Ray now. A deeply flawed, unimaginative and hollow movie. Not as bad as "The Last Moof-Milker" (Tesla!) but still very bad. The ST is devoid of imagination. There were many complaints about Lucas's use of CG to create environments, but as long as they're are made well a...

Re: Star Wars Episode I The Phantom Menace

TPM has seen some reevaluation after the ST with some reviewers praising Lucas's worldbuilding (which the ST lacked). I got to admit that I've done so myself.
