Will it ever happen?: Mike Matessino's STAR WARS: PREQUEL TRILOGY Collector's Set

Star Wars Prequel Trilogy expansion release schedule  

51 members have voted

  1. 1. How will Disney Records release the inevitable Star Wars expansions?

    • One score at a time, from TPM through to TROS (or any other order)
    • One trilogy at a time, from the prequels through the sequels (or any other order)
    • The entire saga in one gigantic set, timed to release with the 4K Bluray set next year
    • The entire saga in one gigantic set, many years from now
    • NEVER!
    • Individual releases of all 9, released at the same time

I gotta say, hearing parts of the prequel trilogy in 7.1 lossless in Jedi: Fallen Order really, really annoys me because it sounds SO DAMN GOOD! Especially the sections with Anakin's Betrayal and Anakin's Dark Deeds. How I so wish Mike got the chance to handle these scores properly :crymore:

 

It got me thinking though, how will Disney Records tackle these scores when they finally get to expansions? Everyone seems to think a huge box set with all 9 scores is cost-prohibitive, but you have to remember that, unlike a smaller label, Disney don't need to pay anyone a license fee to release the first 6 scores (and just need to pay union fees for 7-9), so that means each score can be released more affordably.

 

Still, do you expect individual expansions over several months? Trilogy box sets every year? Or the whole saga in one go? Or is it simply our lot in life to suffer and we will never see these mistreated scores receive the treatment they deserve?

Problem is: when would be interesting for Disney to release this?

 

I mean, in terms of marketing, the perfect oportunity would be now, timed to the release of TROS closing the Skywalker saga.

 

Because, after this movie, the franchise will take a break for a few years, at the very least until 2022, and who knows in what shape it'll be when it returns to the theaters? Almost certainly not with JW composing the whole score.

 

So yeah, I dunno when would it be interesting for Disney, in terms of $$$$, to release this. But it makes sense an Indiana Jones megabox on 2021, timed to the release (?) of the fifth movie.

Well Mike has said all along that it doesn't make sense to do it until John has finished scoring the saga, so I guess that means we were never getting traction here until after TROS was done. I'm hopeful for something next year (but not holding my breath). Disney will release 4K masters of the whole saga next year and that will be it for many years, other than Disney+ shows.

Your poll doesn't contain the option I would pick, which is individual releases, but all released on the same day (no box), so I can't vote. 

 

There you go!

Of course it will happen eventually, one way or another. What I would be most interested in is, how will MM tackle the end credits? I really dislike having the concert arrangements at the beginning of the OSTs only to have them repeated at the end in the credits. Any chance MM could avoid this?

I don't see how? It was always Williams' intended end credits suite to have them included. He even wrote a coda for Across the Stars specific for that suite, to be appended to the concert suite.

 

AOTC even uses the TPM recording of the end credits fanfare.

They’ll release all of them if more people request it but I guess we’re all too busy discussing why someone would want to fuck Palpatine. Just go to r/movies or r/prequelmemes. :pat:

 

More demand = more $ for Disney = we’ll finally get what we want


Release the complete scores of the Skywalker Saga now!

I would LOVE to see this  happen.  In addition to the sequel trilogy having their complete scores released.  I may not be the hugest fan of the prequels (Revenge of the Sith I DID like, though), but the music was consistently great throughout the prequels.

Put the concert versions in the bonus tracks section, of course, as it is usual for decent C&C releases.

I honestly haven't listened to the prequel scores very much at all in years, but after listening to The Phantom Menace's soundtrack I gotta say:  that music is really, really good.  It's arguably the real heart of an otherwise soulless picture.  Even Attack of the Clones's score is better than it has any right to be.  Already listening to Revenge and so far the standards haven't fallen.  The existing albums are missing many minutes of music that could stand to be rereleased.  I hope Matessino gets on with it someday.
