UM how is that i hadnt seen this thread before?

Jason, did you find this cover in a spanish site?

december 28th is the april's fools day here...

At first i thought that it was Ricard's doing... ;)

but seeing that it has not been debunked yet..so is this crap the real deal?

And it is the UE or the OST???

If its the UE...maybe they will release the UE for AOTC and ROTS... :sigh:

Maul is the focus because he is cool, while Anakin and Jarjar are not!

Then it should have just had him and the words John Williams on the front.

Darth Maul was the best part TPM. The only villain in Star Wars who didn't drop the passing of the torch from the Vader of the original trilogy. And he worked incredibly well because of the air of mystery around him. How do you cook up a another Vader? You move most of the villain into the brain of your audience. Make him more or less a figment of the audience's imagination.

None of that Dooku/Grievous/Palpapoo crap.

Hell he should be the only thing on the damned poster!

What is the point of this?! Couldn't they freakin make more money by including unreleased music? Why would people want to buy the same product with a more horrifying cover!?

But this is to be expected I suppose...

Comes with a remastered CD that can only be played on Sony's latest 3D speakers (sold separately). Watch Hear the music come alive!

If this is indeed true then it is another wasted opporturnity on Sony's part but hey would someone in their right mind really want to hear all the music from a film as it was written.

Guys, guys! What the fuck are you complaining about?

We get a new cover! Sony's really put its heart into it!

You really are ungrateful bastards!

I, for one, will buy this release. 3 times.

Sony Classical is a bunch of douchebags.

Why don't they see that, if they release unedited unreleased music, that people will buy this shit?

Judging from this cover, the movie is clearly about Obi-Wan and Yoda teaming up with R2-D2 in a cat-and-mouse game of Jedi vs. Dark Jedi with a speeder chase across the desert.

Sony classical has no idea whatsoever what the fans want.

Seriously , what fanbase are they going after with this? Anyone slightly interested in Star Wars music already has the older version of the OST, which is still in stores anyways.

I really hope some of Sony's retarded executives and marketing people are reading this board (since they send promos to the site) so they know what we think.

Better focus on making decent bootleg versions from the game files since complete Prequel releases are obviously not going to happen for a few years now (until this piece of shit release is OOP which is never)

that's what I'm starting to think

If Harry Potter isn't in the clutches of Sony Classical we'll get that first too

Jason should write them a letter since they send him stuff:

Dear Sony:

Who do you expect is going to buy that piece of crap re-issue that every Star Wars fan already owns. The only people still interested in buying this music is for the complete intended scores and...blah blah blah

Sony gave us one expended edition of a Star Wars prequel score and no one liked it.

You seriously expect them to ever produce another?

BTW, straight reissues of CD's that have sold very well is hardly unusual in the music business.

Labels like FSM, Intrada, Lala Land etc are the exception, not the rule.

The TPM UE was an epic fail of maximum laziness. If they could realize that and try to make better ones

They released the UE to stop bootlegs, but it just gave us material to make more bootlegs

Didn't Lukas Kendall explain this to the Sony/LFL execs and they just got frustrated and said "Who are these people?!"

Since Sony has the rights to the 1997 assemblies, you'd think they know what works.

it was the early 2000's. They didn't know better. In those days piracy was virtually non-existent.

I remember reading somewhere that they are trying to focus on Maul as much as possible because of there's going to be (or there was?) an episode The Clone Wars series featuring Darth's Maul eeeevil brother and his own bunch of clones. Stupidest premise ever.

Oh and Roald... Why don't you show them how you do a real cover? ;)

I think that Sony Classical honestly didn't know any better with the Ultimate Edition and felt that they were giving us what we wanted, which is why they were so dumbfounded by the backlash. It was understandable that they didn't want to produce any more.

But that was 10 years ago now, some wounds time should heal. They should have taken another shot at it....but maybe that's not what Lucasfilm or Williams wants. It's entirely possible that it's them holding up complete editions, and not Sony.

I'm sure neither company have it very high on their list of priorities.

Even the perfectly produced complete Prequel box set would sell probably less then 10.000 copies. Peanuts for a company like Sony.

You guys give yourself to the illusion that Sony is aiming at a fanbase. With this, they are clearly aiming for people who only have a bypassing interest in film music, and may pick up the CD while they are browsing through a store.

Because, as you clearly pointed out, they know that the fanbase already owns the CD.

Other than the obsessive completists, why do people still give a shit about Star Wars music?

Finally a voice of reason I can agree with.

The music not available in any form by now (OST, UE, fanmade) isn't worth fussing over.

Charlie, for Padme's visit , all of the Lament orchestral reprisal and the fanfare opening until the Across the Stars statement just leaked SFX free in The Old Republic game. It's a gorgeous cue

What's missing is the darker part in the middle
