Media Center>Star Wars Episode IX - SPOILER THREAD
DaneMcCloud 09:46 PM 12-17-2019
Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker had its premiere last night at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. Non-Spoiler reviews and Twitter mentions are trickling out and they're overwhelmingly positive.

I'll be seeing the film Thursday night, 6:30pm PST but I'm not sure if I'll have time to post because we're traveling for the holidays, leaving at 4am the next morning. If I can't post Thursday evening, I'll get to it at some point over the weekend, maybe after I've seen it a second time.

It's a Spoiler thread but let's try to keep the real spoilery stuff in the Spoiler Tags through the weekend, just so we don't ruin the movie for someone that accidentally clicks on the thread.

Let's hear it! :-)

It was his money, though. It wasn't like he was taking money from a studio, then producing those films.

I've mentioned this several times before but Lucas did reach out to every A-List director at the time but no one wanted to touch a Star Wars property because in the end, it's a losing proposition.

Just look what's happened to JJ Abrams, Rian Johnson, Chris Miller and Phil Lord, Gareth Edwards and Ron Howard since directing Star Wars films. Outside of Howard, their reputations were dragged through the mud for months, if not years, on end, they were threatened on Social Media and fans boycotted Lucasfilm releases.

Sometimes the best move is the move you don't make.

Thanks for the perspective. Now what’s the common factor behind all the negativity of directing a Star Wars film as these are all talented directors/producers/storytellers in one shape or form.

Eric Idle admits he 'sent Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford high' onto Empire Strikes Back set

Speaking to The New York Times, while promoting his new memoir Always Look on The Bright Side of Life: A Sortabiography, Idle admitted that he kept the pair "up too late" before they shot the Cloud City scenes for The Empire Strikes Back:

"We were having too much fun. Carrie Fisher had rented my house and she was staying there. We went to bed and they went to work. It turns out when they filmed the scene, they were still a little high."

Stories of wild living had long swirled around the second Star Wars film. Fisher, who was 19 at the time, later admitted to losing control of her cocaine habit on set, and in 2015 she mentioned Idle's party to The Daily Beast, saying the Pythons gave her and Ford something called "The Tunisian Death Drink".

"We never went to sleep", she said, "so we weren’t hungover — we were still drunk when we arrived in Cloud City the next day. We don’t really smile a lot in the movie, but there we’re smiling."
