#Mandalorian S2 Trailer Update - here’s the latest tea:

#Disney didn’t like trailer & delayed it to be re-edited.

Also they have problems with the season overall - reshoots but also I hear a BIG problem but no details on that just yet, looking into it...

#StarWars
Well, I kinda do know what the problem is, but to reveal it would expose my source because so few people know... 🤐

So now I just have to wait for it to come out. But it’s BIG.

Disney still has time to fix it though, or paper over it so maybe no one ever knows...
All I’ll say is that if the #Mandalorian has a significant shift say... halfway through Season 2... I wouldn’t be surprised

Ready or Not... We're LIVE with @dessalen in the first of our new #TeVE series. Today we're talking about "Getting it Wrong: What Every Leader Wants to Avoid" 😣. Follow along #TeVirtualEvents #BringPeopleTogether
Outdated conversations can lead to old ways of thinking and aren't in line with #virtualleadership in current times. Great #leadership starts with self-awareness! Self awareness is the foundation of emotional intelligence 💜 #TeVE #TeVirtualEvents #BringPeopleTogether
Making people aware of #bias doesn't mean there will be action seen. They aren't necessarily connected. Awareness doesn't have much value to your team without actions.

#Abrohilo (brevísimo) sobre #HarrisonFord y algunos de sus papeles emblemáticos en el cine:
Fue nombrado Harrison en honor de su abuelo materno Harry Nidelman (quien murió en 1919), quien fue un inmigrante judío originario de Minsk, Bielorrusia.

#HarrisonFord
Aunque #HarrisonFord intentó estudiar literatura inglesa y filosofía, desde la escuela tuvo inclinaciones por la actuación. Sin embargo, por sus constantes ausencias, nunca se graduó.

Abrimos hilo sobre increíbles #maquetas de sets de #cine, un arte tan antiguo como actual y fundamental en el 7º arte.
Comenzamos con esta recreación detallada de Manhattan para #EscapeFromNewYork (1981) del maestro John Carpenter, para la secuencia inicial y tomas aéreas.
#hilo
Pocas maquetas tan impresionantes y efectivas como esta reconstrucción de Gotham City para el #Batman de Tim Burton (1989). Mi Batman favorito, por cierto (sí, ya sé que soy minoría). El nivel de detalle y la luz son alucinantes.
#cine #Gotham #HiloDeCine
Esta genial recreación de una calle de Nueva York y parte de Central Park para #Ghostbusters (1984) me parece una delicia. Contaba con coches teledirigidos y estaba a la escala del traje de Marshmallow Man que debía llevar un actor. Maravilla.

We're about to watch #StarWars #TROS for the first time.

Place your bets on how long it takes me to start cursing JJ Abrams.
Well, that frakking sucked.
So so so many problems with this trilogy. And, yeah, the prequels also had a lot of problems, but they did not upset me nearly to this level. Gonna have to parse out why...

Del mismo modo que #StarWars ha inspirado a cientos de películas, Star Wars tomó como inspiración un montón de obras cinematográficas, y no solo la película original, si no toda la Saga.

Hoy voy a hablaros de esas influencias.... Image
La primera y gran influencia cinematográfica de Episodio IV es sin duda "La Fortaleza Escondida".

El clásico de Akira Kurosawa sirvió a Lucas como base para su película, y fue clave para muchos de sus elementos narrativos y arquetipos de personajes. ImageImageImageImage
Pero no solo "La Fortaleza Escondida" influyó a Lucas, otras obras de Kurosawa le dieron ideas.

La pelea y posterior desmembramiento en la Cantina pudo surgir de una secuencia de "Yojimbo", aunque es cierto que toda la escena de la cantina está también inspirada en los Westerns. Image

[Thread] A brief history of starfighters piloting in #StarWars video games.

On the occasion of the unveiling of #StarWarsSquadrons , the next game from @EAStarWars and @MotiveMontreal , we will quickly return to its predecessors. (not an exhaustive list 😅)

Stay on target! 🚀
1982
It all starts with the very first (official) Star Wars game: The Empire Strikes Back (Atari 2600) by Parker Brothers.

It's simply the Battle of Hoth, with a pixelated T-47 airspeeder (aka Snowspeeder).
Enjoy:

If it's a peaceful protest why is #StarWars @JohnBoyega dressed like an Antifa member? Does he not realise that George Floyd is being used as the catyalist to start a race war for political reasons and George Soros paid Antifa are ironically murdering black men like David Dorn.
Funny John never mentioned him, and funny how he is dressed like an Antifa member, good, military gloves, vest. His words say be peacefully but his body language says the complete opposite. He screams at the crowd in Hyde park, dressed like an Antifa member then there is

¿Fue censurada #StarWars en Chile, dado que se estrenó en dictadura? La respuesta es si y va para todos los que alegan que no hay que politizarlo todo. Sorry, pero todo es política, desde lo que comes a la ropa que usas. Como sea. Para las versiones dobladas y subtituladas de >

#MakeSolo2Happen would work best as a Disney+ show, and that show is called CRIMSON DAWN. Maul has Qi’ra running the daily operations and only makes brief cameos throughout the show.
1/4
The show is a few years later so roughly 7-ish BBY. The Rebellion is in the long transition from individual cells to a united group that we see happen later in Rebels. One of these cells is Enfys Nest and her Cloud riders who’ll be the other focus of the show.
2/4
The bulk of the show will be Qi’ra and Enfys building this rivalry as both groups attempt to steal resources from the Empire. There’s a lot of questioning the differences between being a criminal vs being a rebel.

So I keep seeing this issue brought up and I wanted to give my reading of it, so heeeere we go.....
The best way to understand this is to follow the saber and Rey's evolving relationship with it. When it first calls to her, she completely rejects it, which is indicative of her rejecting the call to adventure/destiny.
By the climax of the movie Rey calls the saber and it comes to her rather than Kylo. Many see this as the saber now belonging to her case closed; and while this is true in a way, it's not how Rey sees the situation. And we know this because of what happens next...

Shelter-in-place Day 40 deep closet finds: @ILMVFX 40th anniversary pin from 2015. Finally got (nearly) all of my vinyl out of mailers and into crates and saw the back wall of my closet for the first time in years. More buried treasures to come. #StarWars
Shelter-in-place Day 41 deep closet finds: #SoloAStarWarsStory @ILMVFX crew gear socks from 2018, the pattern on which is based on young Lando Calrissian’s shirt which is, in turn, based on the Ralph McQuarrie sketch below. Apologies if I’ve posted these before. #StarWars
Shelter-in-place Day 42 deep closet finds: #SoloAStarWarsStory embroidered crew gear puffy vest, still in the bag (outside of taking this photo). #StarWars

So... Rant time! Because I'm tired as hell and loaded with caffeine!
I keep seeing people claiming that older fans, males in particularly think #StarWars is just for men.
Or the idea that we are somehow 'afraid' of strong women, and strong female characters...
1/25
These are usually the same people that seem to think that strong female characters are a new thing, that somehow before the current crop of movies that no movie, especially not a sci-fi movie had ever had a strong female character.
Clearly this is bullshit...
2/25
Our usual, response is to list Sarah Connor, or Ellen Ripley as examples. We are then usually told something to the effect of "just because you can name one female character doesn't mean that your not a misogynist!" or "if it was made today you'd hate it!"

When the Ancient Maya meet #SciFi!

This photo is of the tops of Pyramids 1 and 2 sticking out above the Jungle canopy from the Maya city Tikal. Does it look familiar? Have you seen this view before? 1/5
What if we add a spaceship and a lookout guard? 2/5
The Rebel Base on Yavin 4 in #StarWars #ANewHope was both figuratively and literally set in ruins.

In Star Wars lore these temples were built thousands of years ago by the Massassai, but in reality they were inspired by the ancient Maya. 3/5

Abrimos un hilo con carteles de cine pintados a mano en Ghana: los encargan a artistas locales porque no les llegan los posters oficiales y les dan "toque especial" que los convierten en verdaderas obras de arte con estilo propio

Empezamos fuerte con #ET (Steven Spielberg 1982 )
#SeñoraDoubtfire ( Chris Columbus 1993 )
Si ya es inquietante lo de la escoba, lo es aún más Robin Williams saliendo del suelo y cogiéndose el pie a sí mismo disfrazado...

#GhanaPosters
#Cujo ( Lewis Teague 1983 )
Pues oye, dan ganas de rascarle la tripa y achuchar al 'perro asesino' que tan malo no parece...

Two of my favorite people collided worlds when @netw3rk read @econoar 's tweet about the @NBA's @SDinwiddie_25's tokenizing his contract on #Ethereum on the Emmy Award Winning #nbadesktop @ringernba.

What a time to be alive!

Thread 1/many
The great @ReformedBroker got the details mostly right, but oversold risk involved for easy Blockchain laughs. @SDinwiddie_25 is turning his contract into a bond, taking the money raised up front, and then paying those who hold the tokens a 2.5% rate until he repays principal.
This has been done before. #DavidBowie (EVER HEARD OF HIM???!!??) did this in the 90's & was met skeptically but ended up being a solid and memorable investment. The ambit of what Bowie wanted to do was much lower than what @SDinwiddie_25's end goals are.
