Star Wars Trivia / Bounty Hunt trivia
« on: April 12, 2019, 11:42:19 PM »
Wow - first new thread in here in about 5 years!

As I said in the Celebration thread from the Wampa Cave, I will post some of the clues/trivia from the Bounty Hunt here. Some of them just wouldn't work in a forum, as they were puzzles using word search or other means, but I will include the ones, or parts of them, that would.

One of the cheap ones - worth 2500 credits - had "travel brochures", and based on the ad, you needed to guess the planet, and certain letters from each answer were used to spell out the target. Here they are:

1) You truly belong with us here among the clouds! Coe and experience the wonder of a gas giant as you float peacefully in the upper atmosphere. Tour the Tibanna gas refineries, explore the carbon-freezing chamber, and enjoy a break far from the heel of the Empire. Contact Lobot for booking information and landing procedures.
*use the 3rd letter of the answer
2) Two vacations in one! You'll never forget the classical architecture of the capital city, but just wait until you tour the underwater towns as well! Take a bongo through the planet's core, enjoy the night life, and meet friendly locals. One may just become an emperor some day!
*use the 1st letter
3) Come experience the best skiing the galaxy has to offer. Your whole family will enjoy day excursions to the North Ridge and the tantaun petting zoo. The night life inside Echo Base is sure to keep you warm.
*use the second letter
4) Beautiful warm sun, lots of sand, and certified to be sarlacc-free (unlike those other desert worlds). Kids will love to search for hidden treasures in the half-buried remnants of a former space battle - they may even be able to trade in their findings for a quarter portion. Drop them off for however long you want.
*use the third letter
5) Getting here is half the fun - and if you can do it in a short distance, you can boast about it to everyone you meet! Check out the spice mines or lead a droid rebellion. Black hole sight-seeing tours leave twice a day, and legend has it there's a secret imperial research station nearby. Book today!
*use the 2nd letter.

Post your 5 answers and the target below - try not to look at the other responses before you answer (although this one is fairly easy).

Wampa Cave / Star Wars Celebration updates
« on: April 12, 2019, 10:54:11 AM »
Hey guys,

I am sitting at the Galaxy Stage, waiting for the Episode 9 panel to begin. So excited!

I am going to use this thread (and any other attendees, please use it, as well) to post news, updates, and other awesomeness from Star Wars Celebration Chicago to share with our Snowtrooper brothers and sisters who couldn't make it down.

The panel starts in about an hour. I'll post updates right after if I can.

Yesterday was really just the Exhibit Hall, which is incredible. So much to see there. I didn't get to see it all - I couldn't spend as long as I wanted, as some of my kids were getting cranky after walking for hours on end exploring the place.

If you have questions and comments, please post, as well.

Wampa Cave / Commentary on Solo: A Star Wars Story from Jon Kasdan
« on: September 14, 2018, 05:26:52 PM »
Read an interesting article today that referenced an even more interesting post on Twitter by Jon Kasdan, where he outlines over 50 behind the scenes things about Solo. I certainly enjoyed reading them. Take a look:

Star Wars Movies & TV shows / Solo:A Star Wars Story SPOILERS
« on: May 24, 2018, 09:37:13 PM »
In case you didn’t see from the title:

********SPOILERS BELOW**********












Lots of detail in the movie that is new, but lots of nods to the EU as well. One new bit (which I’m not sure that I loved) is that Han has no last name at the start. An Imperial recruiter gives him the last name “Solo” because he is all alone.

I have to watch it again, but I could have sworn I heard the name “Cracken” during the battle scene after Han joins the empire, which could be a nod to Airen Cracken, the imperial-turned-rebel special forces expert from the EU (originallly from the old Weat End Games RPG).

In Lando’s little “Captain’s Log” kind of thing, it sounds like he references “Sharu”, a reference to the old Lando novel “Lando Calrissian and the Mindharp of Sharu”.

Han winning the Falcon from Lando was pretty cool. Interesting twist with Lando being the cheater, which adds a little to Han’s statement in the OT where he points out that he won her fair and square.

It was nice to see that they carried over the fact that Lando seems to be the only one in the SW universe who pronounces Han like Hand instead of like Honda.

The one part I didn’t love, which started with the Clone Wars cartoon, is the fact that Darth Maul lives. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Darth Maul, but when a guy gets cut in half, he has to be dead every time. Come on. :luke:

Well, that’s all for now. I’ll have to watch it again and come back with some more commentary!

Have people seen this yet? We went on Thursday night. It was quite the movie! I don't want to say too much lest I spoil it for those who haven't seen it, but it was very bold. A must see, for sure :fight:

Wampa Cave / Ryan Johnson to direct new Star Wars trilogy!!!
« on: November 09, 2017, 05:36:45 PM »
In the midst of all of the director firings, I guess Rian Johnson stands out as someone Lucasfilm loved working with! They announced today that he will be developing a new Star Wars trilogy, I presume taking place after Episode 9.

There will also be a new Star Wars TV show, which will be on a new Disney streaming service.

See the article in Varety here:

Wampa Cave / JJ Abrams back for Episode IX
« on: September 12, 2017, 03:37:23 PM »
As was recently posted here, another drop out in the Star Wars directing world - Colin Trevorrow is no longer doing Episode IX due to the classic "creative differences" with Kathleen Kennedy et al at Lucasfilm.

Just announced today, though - JJ Abrams will be taking the role of writer and director! Good news for some fans, bad for others. Time will tell, but immediate thoughts?

Star Wars Movies & TV shows / Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Reviews
« on: December 14, 2016, 07:50:24 PM »
Please use this thread to give reviews of the movie. If you are going to include spoilers, please warn people with bolded, underlined text stating that there will be spoilers so that they can be sure not to continue. Also, it's not a bad idea to include a few spaces before actually adding the spoiler.  For example, you might type
******Warning - Spoilers Below********










And then put your spoilers down here.

Enjoy the movie, and tell us what you think :fight:

Wampa Cave / Who has their Rogue One tickets?
« on: December 07, 2016, 08:26:30 PM »
I picked up tickets last Monday for the Thursday night showing. I don't know why they say the movies are released on the Friday when they actually have showings on the Thursday...just say it is released on the Thursday :speechless-smiley-004:

Anyway, I'm looking forward to it. Who else is going opening night?

Wampa Cave / Hint to Rey's parents
« on: April 17, 2016, 08:17:03 PM »
There is an article here where JJ Abrams says Rey's parents were not in episode 7!  Later, he back-pedalled and says he meant she didn't discover them in Episode 7, but not sure if he was just trying to cover his tracks.  If his first comment was true, then many fan theories have been blown out of the water!
