  1. On July 27, I posted this: "In anticipation for Star Wars, Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, I began watching the entire Star Wars Saga. In addition, I have been reading the novels and graphic novels. This is in chronological order, of course. I've read Master and Apprentice, Darth Maul, watched Episode I: The Phantom Menace, read Obi-Wan and Anakin, Queen's Shadow, watched Episode II: Attack of the Clones, read Mace Windu: Jedi of the Republic, watched The Clone Wars (waiting for the final season to premiere on Disney+ is another thing to look forward to), listened to the audio-book Dooku: Jedi Lost, read the graphic novel series Age of the Republic: Heroes and Villians, read Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir, read Dark Disciple and watched Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. After that, I'll read Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith, read Ahsoka while listening to the audio-book version, read Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel, Lords of the Sith, Rise of the Empire, Most Wanted, watch Solo: A Star Wars Story, listen to the audio-book Pirate's Price, read Kanan, Thrawn, Thrawn: Alliances, Thrawn: Treason, watch Rebels, read Leia: Princess of Alderaan, Rebel Rising, Guardians of the Whills, watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, watch Episode IV: A New Hope, read From a Certain Point of View, read the graphic novel series Darth Vader, Star Wars, Lando, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Vader: Dark Visions, read Lost Stars, Inferno Squadron, Heir to the Jedi, Twilight Company, watch Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, read the graphic novel series Age of Rebellion: Heroes and Villains, read The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure, Moving Target: A Princess Leia Adventure, Smuggler's Run: A Han Solo Adventure, watch Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, read Shattered Empire, Alphabet Squadron, Aftermath, Aftermath: Life Debt, Aftermath: Empire's End, watch The Mandalorian (when it debuts on Disney+), read Last Shot, Bloodline, The Legends of Luke Skywalker, Phasma, Before the Awakening, read Cobalt Squadron while listening to the audio-book version, read the graphic novel series Poe Dameron, watch Resistance, watch Episode VII: The Force Awakens, read the graphic novel Captain Phasma, read Cobalt Squadron while listening to the audio-book version, watch Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, read the graphic novel series Age of Resistance: Heroes and Villains, read The Rise of Kylo Ren, the graphic novel series Allegiance, read Spark of the Resistance, Resistance Reborn, and Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire. Then it will be time for the grand finale, Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker! Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I'll be going to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge from December 12th through 15th. I'll be reading Galaxy's Edge and A Crash of Fate to learn a bit about the history of Black Spire Outpost. I am able to make some use of my spare time to do all of this before December 20th. Yeah, Star Wars is my favorite saga. A grand and epic story spanning three distinct eras, great characters, unique settings, and of course the music of Maestro John Williams." Now: Wow. Two months left. Eight weeks left. Right now, I am on Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. Still a ways to go, but the timing lines up perfectly. I am so excited.
  2. The alternates are a great and interesting listen also, particularly Anderton Escapes (Alternate Segment). Very interesting and cool.
  3. While that video post is hilarious (kudos to Greg Grunberg AKA Snap Wexley), that reply tweet from LEGO is objectionable. HOW DARE THEY?!? I don't care that it was a joke on their part. "John Williams can finally step aside." REALLY? You could communicate the same joke without saying something like that. Maybe substitute it with, "Put the orchestra aside. Your score is breathtaking." P.S. I'm kidding. The first part of that reply tweet was obviously a joke.
  4. I got mine today. This is the first time that I have heard the entire score outside of the film. Having had the original soundtrack album until the announcement of the definitive release, I can say that the remastered sound is phenomenal. The clarity and impact of the Maestro's music stand out in great detail. I am really glad that Mike Mattessino is the Maestro's personal soundtrack archivist and remaster specialist. The liner notes are very informative and detailed. An excellent read. I never expected that Minority Report would get the definitive treatment so soon. I cannot wait to see what score of the Maestro's gets the definitive treatment next. This is phenomenal.
  5. At least we agree on that; leave it be. Now, to enjoy the rest of my Sunday afternoon with a hot cup of tea and continuing the Star Wars Saga with Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. One question, though. By what time frame is the soundtrack estimated to be available to pre-order, compared with Episode VII: The Force Awakens and Episode VIII: The Last Jedi?
  6. Like I said, we can agree to disagree. That being said, this will tie everything together. I'm looking forward to it.
  7. Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker is the conclusion of the Skywalker Saga, which began with Episode I: The Phantom Menace (or Episode IV: A New Hope, release-wise).
  8. No typo. The track title on the definitive release is correct. It is spelled "Eyck." It was a typo on the OST. I checked the actual end credits just to be sure.
  9. This is phenomenal news. I am really glad that the Maestro is gonna conduct the Vienna Philharmonic after not being able to do so before due to illness. Maybe they'll be able to record the concert for release on CD as they originally planned.
  10. Actually, it was utilized in the film. I actually prefer the piece without the overlay; I like both versions though. More to the alternate segment? I cannot wait to hear the whole piece! I cannot wait to hear the whole score!
