    I was hoping for more than just a 40th discussion panel.

    Oh well.

    Todd said that Disney asked for permission and that he and Billie gave it.

    Either Todd is lying (why would be???) or they (Lucasfilm) wanted to keep it a secret to be a surprise for the audience. Or perhaps they want to keep the option open but aren't committing to the idea. Or maybe both are right - Todd says her image will appear, Kennedy says "Carrie Fisher" won't be in it, and strictly speaking, that's true because it wouldn't really be Carrie Fisher.

    Either way, Kennedy's statement is odd.

    "That’s a 180 from what the late actress’ brother told the New York Daily News last week. He said he and Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd gave Disney permission to use recent footage of her for the next sequel, which is due. “Both of us were like, ‘Yes, how do you take her out of it?’ And the answer is you don’t,” Todd Fisher said April 8. Kennedy said today, “He was probably confused.”"

    I saw a clip of the 1977 Star Wars film with an extended scene without Jame Earl Jones voice and people in the audience were outwardly laughing at it. It was the scene in which they were discussing the Death Star and one of the generals was dissing the "Force" until Darth Vader started choking him with it.

    True about Fox. So if there was a time to do a final, definitive set of the six original films in its most current form (right down to the Fox logo)...and yes, remastered original theatrical versions of IV, V, & VI, plus as many bonus features as possible (dating back to the days of VHS and LassrDisc), it is ASAP before the cut off in May 2020, and all previous video versions (from VHS to blu ray) will become eBay fodder for big $$$.

    I doubt Disney will acquire IV from Fox anyway.

    Is today the last day of Celebration? No further word on future films in the series?

    It goes until tomorrow. Outside of MAYBE the closing ceremonies tomorrow at 5 PM, there doesn't seem to be a logical spot to announce a new movie. That being said, they could just announce something to the media.

    Because we're not other forums who throw conniptions about the occasional tangential discussion?

    Right, but like I was saying..why would they want to right now? Pay through those nose for five of the six titles now, or wait two years and get them for free?

    I initially thought it was Celebration Anaheim too. But it was San Diego Comic Con 2015.

    Yes every article was saying it was his first time and I remembered his crash.

    Now I'm not sure, was it because of his plane crash or his leg broken on TFA set that he did not attend celebration?

    At least one more deleted scene from a new hope was shown over the weekend at celebration...

    Bill hunt from the digital bits:

    Okay… Star Wars Celebration weekend has ended with… well, not much in the way of Blu-ray release news related to the Star Wars films. Not that we expected any, per our recent posts, but still. Lucasfilm’s John Knoll did show off some interesting behind the scenes material on The Making of Rogue One panel at the event, including a rare extended cut of the Death Star briefing room scene from the original Star Wars, as well as virtual recreations of a number of classic Death Star settings that didn’t make the final cut of Rogue One, but there was no indication as to when (if ever) any of that material might be released on Blu-ray, nor was there any indication of a more elaborate Rogue One: Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release later this year. (The Making of Rogue One panel also doesn’t seem to have been live-streamed for some reason, though probably to keep the footage shown there from appearing online.) At any rate, it seems that Disney and Lucasfilm are just going to do whatever they’re going to do, with regard to releasing these films on Blu-ray, and fans will simply have to deal with it.

    Comic Con would be a good time to do it. It'll probably be too early for another trailer for The Last Jedi so a new movie announcement would get the franchise some headlines.

    More likely it would be at D23.
