Or like Boba Fett in ESB's, or Jabba/Palpatine in ROTJ.

Among all the things I have done in my short and pitiful life, becoming an inside joke on JWFAN is the one I'm the least proud of.


The additional passage was interesting but not really something I would consider absolutely essential.

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:

I hope Episode III is Called 'Revenge of the Sith'

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

Duh. Because he's the thing everyone liked most. Even people who hated it said Maul kicked ass.
Repeat the JWFan pledge after me: 'I hereby recognise John Towner Williams' place in the world as the great composer there has ever been, and I therefore renounce the works of Rozsa, Korngold, Herrmann, Horner, Kamen, Giacchino (unless the prophecy is fulfilled and he becomes the heir to JTW) and Goldsmith, especially Goldsmith. I understand that if I ever refer to Jurassic Park as anything less than "a masterpiece sixty-five million years in the making" I will be resigned to living out my days at the Zimmershrine.'

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...

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.

Ars superior est vita hominum.

 

"We pop out and come into the world and music is there. We didn't invent it - it's all organised in the atmosphere by divinity or whatever. It's a miracle." - John Williams-

 

I think music is a stream of some kind. It could be blood. It could be water. It could be ether. Whatever it is it seems to be a living, organic force that’s in motion, that serves humanity and is part of humanity and part of what describes us as humans. We sing, play, dance, all the things that we do. And there is a vibrant and great literature we have been given. ... As musicians, we join the stream. We swim in the stream with all the other millions of music makers. It’s a life force, a strong one, surrounding us and we are part of it. -John Williams-

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.

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)

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.

It is when it's one of the best cues of the entire trilogy.
Repeat the JWFan pledge after me: 'I hereby recognise John Towner Williams' place in the world as the great composer there has ever been, and I therefore renounce the works of Rozsa, Korngold, Herrmann, Horner, Kamen, Giacchino (unless the prophecy is fulfilled and he becomes the heir to JTW) and Goldsmith, especially Goldsmith. I understand that if I ever refer to Jurassic Park as anything less than "a masterpiece sixty-five million years in the making" I will be resigned to living out my days at the Zimmershrine.'
