"Every step of post-production on Star Wars reflected a revolutionary commitment to the craft", summarizes Scoma. Like I don't know what I did first time round.
And who can blame him?
The 9.79GB update also includes significant balance changes for all Star Wars Battlefront 2 heroes, particularly Lando, Emperor Palpatine and Chewbacca, who've been buffed. But the agony of watching the Anakin Skywalker/Padmé Amidala storyline was just too much for me in this latest viewing. They're posh enough for grown-up guys to sport with confidence, and cool enough to make the inner child in them absolutely gleeful.
The Hollywood Reporter reported last month that the royal brothers have a cameo in the film as Stormtroopers. The consensus among critics is that the movie "honors the saga's rich legacy while adding some surprising twists", according to the site. But, forget all that.
The conclusion of the prequel trilogy is one of the saga's darkest. These are the kind of visuals you see in a Yimou Zhang art film (like his Hero or Raise the Red Lantern), not in an action/adventure movie. Padmé dies, but not before giving birth to their twins, Luke and Leia.
That's why I particularly enjoyed this video from Rocket Jump, which goes into the editing process for the first Star Wars movie. Get HELLO! Canada, PEOPLE, Vanity Fair and over 100 more of the world's best magazines for one low monthly price at Texture by Next Issue.

Abrams-helmed The Force Awakens, which was a monster success in 2015. Temptation. A hunt for the Promised Land. It's safe to say that it ruined her day, especially since she's a big fan.

The item is hand-painted and made of fiberglass from original hand sculptures. The storytelling bogs down in a middle section having to do with finding a code-cracker who can gain access to an enemy destroyer. Maybe it was me on my knees'. Rey has sought out and found Luke Skywalker, a monkish self-isolate on a faraway island of a really faraway planet. If it was 152 minutes, I wanted 152 more.
Connie Wethington, a representative for the filmmaker, told Heat Vision that Lucas felt the film was 'beautifully made'. One audience member even shrieked "What?!" at a key scene deep in the film. "Somewhere in the film's 152-minute running time is an amazing 90-minute movie".
