Disney Ramping up Marketing

This line was a little disconcerting:

Quote
"This is one of those franchises you just can't overexpose," said Peter Sealey, former head of marketing at Columbia Pictures. "You just put the metal to the floor and enjoy the ride."

But they've got a free game app coming soon called Star Wars: Commander*.  And Rebels is going to do what Clone Wars did and start with a movie, but they're not releasing into theaters.  


*Make that out now: https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/star-wars-commander/id847985808?mt=8

So we'll be inundated with hype until the movie has no chance of living up to it.  That about sum it up, eh Disney?

You think they're going to change what's worked so well for so long?  We're looking at a decade of saturation before they even consider putting anything in "the vault", and I don't even know if that's something they do with live action titles.

No, I don't think they'll change that.  Pretty much SOP for them these days.  They love putting them in the vault, it means they get to re-release them in yet another special edition.

I imagine the re-release of Aladdin next year just got a few more bonus features projected for addition.

Not sure what to make of the title.  Funny to see the #BetterStarWarsTitles hashtag go crazy on it though.

My candidates were:
Star Wars 7: More of the Same
Star Wars 7: Midichlorian Back Wash
Star Wars 7: Jar-Jar Binks-free!
Star Wars 7: Attempting to Undo the Damage George Lucas Did to His Own Franchise

While I think the title's fine, it also makes it sound like a bunch of geriatric Jedi waking from their naps.

Han breaks a leg on the door of the Millenium Falcon ("I can't move! Someone get me crutches!"), Luke sprains his back trying to mount a Tauntaun ("My BACK! Omigod! MY BACK!"), and Leia falls ("I've fallen and I can't get up!!!").  icon_eek

Which maybe IS the plot of JJ Abrams' movie.   smirk Bring your own!

I'm not knocking the elderly. Many of my favorite music groups and actors are simply old.  icon_smile

People are saying the title is too generic, but I for one am really happy to see them going back to generic titles. "The Phantom Menace" and "Attack of the Clones" are too of the most god-awful titles in the history of cinema. (And yes, I know they're a nod to old movie serials, blah blah blah don't make excuses for George Lucas' incompetence.)

Yeah, I can't say I mind this title. It's perfectly in line with Star Wars tradition. The movies have had banal titles from the very beginning, and "The Force Awakens" avoids sounding cliched. That's enough for me.

I wonder if these new stormtrooper helmets will allow the stuntmen and extras wearing them to actually see where they're going.

A little late replying to this, but:

http://www.dorkly.com/post/70275/15-things-you-didnt-know-about-star-wars/page:2

Quote
4. No Clone Trooper armor was ever produced for the films.

It's become a joke how overreliant Lucas was on greenscreen and special effects over the course of the Prequel trilogy - virtually every set had some major greenscreen component, giving everything a slightly-too-clean sheen about it. But this might surprise you - there was never a single piece of actual Clone Trooper armor ever on-screen. Literally every time you see a Clone Trooper in armor, it's completely CGI - the only times any part of a Clone Trooper isn't ALL CGI is when their face appears, and any time you see a Clone Trooper with a helmet on, it's 100%.

To be fair, this probably had something to do with the original Stormtrooper Armor being notoriously uncomfortable to wear, see out of, breathe in, etc.

VERY cautiously. My NEW HOPE is the George Lucas has minimum involvement. It occurs to me the my two favorite episodes are V and IV, the two that he had least control of. Once Return of the Jedi hit, Ewocks, etc. they lost me.

Stormtroopers aren't clones in the first place, so that makes sense. The Empire stopped with the cloning business sometime between episode 3 and 4, and instead started recruiting their elite soldiers. Hence "stormtrooper" instead of "clone trooper".

Yeah, I'm going to need a citation for this, and don't say it was in the books because we all know they're not canon biggrin

That certainly was a teaser - not even a frame of Harrison Ford or something?

Anybody that complains about that trailer deserves to be bitch slapped with their own kidney. I mean, the movie might still suck, but that was a fun teaser. As for none of the old guard showing up, they're probably still working on CGI'ing them all up so that they don't all look 110 years old.

Yeah, that seemed overly silly.  I also did a  Roll Eyes at the light saber hilt.

Other than those two minor gripes, I thought that was pretty cool.  Cautiously optimistic...we've been burned by cool Star Wars trailers before.
