    gkgyver got a reaction from Mattris in The Rise of Skywalker SPOILERS ALLOWED discussion thread   
    No, of course not. I mean, why would the creator of Star Wars be present at the premiere of the conclusion to his saga? Preposterous. 
    He must have had better things to do. 
    So, the Star Wars saga ends with a blood relative of Sith Lord Palpatine assuming the Skywalker name. Excellent storytelling.

    Sowing discord among members Consistent negative attitude Comically, both of which is exactly what these "rules" do. 
     
    What you're doing here is in fact lawless. Because 1. You proclaim yourself as untouchable infallible ruler, 2. You destroy any democratic basis by ruling open opposition criminal, and 3. You impose a set of rules that are formulated so foggy and vague that they can be bent and stretched to punish and delete whatever you want, and that's subject to ego. 
    Just like other social media platforms use the nondescript term of "inappropriate content" to reject or allow whatever fits their shoe. 
     
    How about asking the community if it wants you as moderator first, before you force them to kiss your butt?

    Canceled my Dizney Plus subscription again. I wish I could purchase the old SW movies directly from Lucas without giving any money to the Commie Mouse.

    Obviously The Black Gate Opens. 
     
    The key to the brilliant accessibility of these scores is: always scoring the story, never the action. 
     
    That's where all new scores fail. Always staying superficial, never making the effort to go deep.

    So one JWFAN says to another:
    " What do you think if SOUL?"."
    " Sucks"
    " What did you think of JOKER"
    " Garbage"
    " What did you think of SOCIAL NETWORK?"
    " Trash""
    " What about Zimmer?"
    " Awful"
    " And you call yourself a film score fan?"

    Sounds like Williams doesn't want any other composer to use his themes with similar/same orchestration in sequel scores without him, Williams, being involved or approving it. 
     
    This may also explain Jurassic Park 3, where he collaborated with Don Davis, and every subsequent Harry Potter score not using Williams themes much except for a token appearance or two. 
     
    And Indiana Jones V. 
     
    Anyway, admirable, JW at his age preserving his legacy. 
     
    May be a good indication that JW is aware of modern film music and doesn't want that dreck near him.

    He may not be convinced the composer can do his music justice. 
     
    And neither would I, if I looked at Nicholas Hooper.

    If JW was perturbed having not been asked to do Rogue One, I'm positive he was hired for Indy 5 to not have a Rogue One situation again.
     
    And JW allegedly almost quitting Episode IX because JJ was coming back brings warmth to my heart. 
    No wonder that one turned out so anonymously.

    The Rogue One stories are indeed true. Same thing happened back on Shadows of the Empire, although in that case it was too late to change anything. Rogue One, on the other hand, had to be largely rewritten.

    Isn't it obvious that mentioning a love for film music during a conversation flowing naturally into musical preferences is normal? While bringing up your hopes for a complete Star Wars Anthology 21 CD Box Set after she asks about your future plans might be awkward?
