I would imagine prints of the novelization of SW are pretty inexpensive on the secondary market. I guess one would just have to purchase one printed prior to 1997 to read it as was originally written?

Um... we’re not talking about the novelization. We’re talking about a quote from The Making of Star Wars, an exhaustive coffee table book on the subject printed in 2007.

Image
https://www.amazon.com/Making-Star-Wars ... 8&qid=&sr=

In it, the author uses a quotation about the Force from an interview with George that was conducted in 1977. However, during the writing of the book, George himself added a new “clarification” to that quotation that mentioned midichlorians. As I posted, the original 1977 quote said nothing about them. The problem is, the book doesn’t make this distinction. It presents the newly revised 2007 version of the quotation as if it is the original 1977 quotation. This has caused confusion and many clickbait articles (such as the one mr.negativity linked) that believes and promotes the idea that George came up with midichlorians as far back as 1977, which is patently false.

My apologies. I agreed with all your points however, I just misread the source. It's just that I previously owned novelizations of the original film (both pre and post 1997) I wouldn't be surprised if Midichlorians were added after the fact as you stated regarding the The Making of Star Wars. I was just curious to know if the novelizations received the *special edition* treatment, or were for the most part left untouched?

Yeah, as far as I know, the novelizations have never been altered and even current printings are still the original text. The community on the Star Wars forums I frequent are pretty obsessive about finding and documenting these kinds of revisions so I’m sure I’d have heard of it if the novelizations had been changed.

Taking a break is probably best so they can get the creative juices flowing.

In the mean time, they should do a fully remastered Blu-Ray and 4K combo set of the oiriginal versions to the OT.

BTW, toy sales would not be sluggish if people could actually find them. My stores are still stocked with The Last Jedi figures, so naturally nothing new has arrived. I've yet to even see the Rebels cast in stores.

Teaser from Stars Wars Celebration in Chicago has just been released for Episode 9, along with the title!

A title mathematically designed to drive Star Wars fans up the wall with competing theories for the next 8 months.

I'm hopeful, but it's clear that we're back into ultra-conservative original trilogy fanboy-pleasing territory here. There are enough hints to suspect we're looking at Return of the Jedi 2.0, and the return of Luke's lightsaber and Kylo's mask make me worry that this trilogy really will be defined by a pissing contest between two directors.

Yeah I really don't know what to make of that teaser, I had the oddest reaction to it - on one hand I have enjoyed Disney's Star Wars films on the other I can't believe they didn't work out a cohesive story for this trilogy ahead of time. Disney has more time and money than god to get this stuff right and they ran headfirst in.

What I don't get is...shortly before TFA came out, so probably late 2015...JJ said in an interview that he had "read the script" for Episode VIII, and he was so jealous that he wasn't getting to direct it... So either that was a blatant lie, or Rian Johnson made some pretty extreme changes after that point,...or....the TLJ, which was so divisive, was in fact planned out well in advance... :?

That title makes no sense, there aren't any Skywalkers left.

Oh well, whatever. I'm going to see it anyway even if I don't really care.

JJ has a history of planting mystery and lies in marketing campaigns, only for the truth to be the most obvious answer. In both of his Star Wars movies, he's bent continuity and logic to breaking point in order to put Anakin's/Luke's lightsaber in Rey's hand. Though I hope I'm wrong, I don't think he'll have any qualms about retconning Kylo's claims about Rey's parents so he can make her a Skywalker after all, since TFA implied it so heavily.

Then again, The title of The Last Jedi turned out to be misleading clickbait, so it's entirely possible we'll walk out of Episode IX still wondering what its title meant.

Now that it is May 2019, 20 years ago at this time, we were still in an era where there was no such thing as a "bad" Star Wars movie. In May 1999, the most controversial SW movie was still "Return of the Jedi".

It is funny that after I saw "The Phantom Menace", I did not know what to think. I felt like that scene in "Citizen Kane" where Charles Foster Kane is forcing an applause after watching his wife give a terrible opera performance!

I hope that the franchise will take a LONG hiatus after this next installment.
