Hey everybody! With the holiday’s fast approaching, we know that like many of you pretty soon we’ll all be wrapped up in our vacation and family plans until the new year. So, with that said I’ve decided to get ahead of it all and wanted to let folks know that we probably won’t be back with any updates until 2019 rolls around, but we want to wish you, yours, and your fellow Wookiee Life Day’ers a happy and safe holiday season.
But fret not! We’ll be back next year with more to share, as today we leave you with this beautiful reminder that yes, no matter what we all want to believe, the Star Wars Holiday Special does exist, and it’s cannon. A fact being contemplated for all time by Han Solo himself in this moment. 😉
What looks like a bad Photoshop job is actually Chewbacca in his Life Day robe…
Happy Holiday’s everyone, and as always… until next time! 😀
There’s a question that’s arisen over the past week, and it’s one worth us taking a moment to cover as it will surely come up again.
As we’ve discussed other Star Wars properties on this site before that are outside of our project, such as in regards to the video game Star Wars: Battlefront II or the film Solo: A Star Wars Movie, it makes sense that folks might wonder what our thoughts are on the recent, past, or future news about Lucasfilm’s official Star Wars Episode IX due out in the winter of 2019. Well, to clear up the curiosity, we will not be discussing the upcoming Disney film here on www.episodeix.org.
We certainly have our thoughts on it, and constantly evolving opinions, but to give substance to our project, we need to present it in a world where Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the last episodic film that was produced. Our unrelated, unofficial Episode IX Radio Drama is the direct sequel to that film and the other seven before it, and is the only Episode IX that exists in the universe of this website and project.
At some point, we may revisit discussing the upcoming theatrical Episode IX with our own review or editorials about it, but don’t expect us to reference or discuss it until 2020 at the very earliest, if ever at all. To quote another franchise, “There can be only one.” 😉
Now Teen Titans GO! To The Movies on the other hand, that was a master class in hilarious animated hi-jinx for the young and middle-aged-but-still-young-at-heart to enjoy, so I would just say “GO! see it!” if I were to comment on it; but that’s another topic entirely…
Hey-ho, everyone! A few days ago we officially passed into summertime! Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Yeah, we know, it happens on June 21 every year.” But for myself, Pete, and Tim, that’s not what I mean by “summertime.” I’m referring to summertime as “our kids all got out of school last week, which squirrels away the little free time we often have tucked into sub-space pockets for us to access later on.” 😉
If this past week has proven anything to us, it’s that time is even more of a precious commodity and will most likely continue to be for the next two months or so than it was before. So please bear with us as you may find that updates to the site may come a little more infrequently than you’re used too, but know that we are using our limited free time right now to put it into our Episode IX project even if we might not get a chance to talk it up on here right away.
We’re still here and we’re still working! Just a little quieter until the summer heat breaks and the kids start filing back onto the buses. 🙂
It might be Friday the 13th, but over the past 48 hours EpisodeIX.org has been going through the major changes we had in store for it from the beginning, finally bringing it inline with where we wanted it to be. This includes unveiling our logo! Read on to learn more about it, and what we’ve been up to.
We’re glad to see you found our little, incredibly unfinished, website! Although the site isn’t really ready to go yet, we sure are!
But “ready to go with what?,” you ask. The short answer – an alternative take on what a Star Wars Episode IX could be, as told through an audio format with only storyboards being used for the visuals. Like a narrated picture book from a long time ago.
This is a not-for-profit project being done to coincide with the 2019 Extra-Life event which raises donations for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. We’re glad you’re here, and we hope you’ll come along on this journey with us.
We’re excited to show and tell you more, but we’ve got more work to do right now, including on this nascent website! For now, if you’d like to find out more, please sign up for our newsletter, the Commlink, below. And if you are a digital or physical media artist and would like to volunteer your skills, we would love to have you on-board! Just make a note of that in the “How did you hear about us” field and we’ll get back in touch with you.
Thanks again everyone for your interest, and may the Force be with you!
