Attention, Star Wars fans! Pop culture artist Scott C. has delivered the ultimate print for everyone who was blown away by Star Wars: A New Hope. Whether it was all the way back in 1977 when you were thrust into a galaxy far, far away or at a pivotal time in your childhood, Star Wars means something to you.

The Star Wars films have gone through their fair share of remasters, with each new re-release usually coming with technological tinkering from director George Lucas or family-friendly changes from new studio owner Disney. So with the release of the 4K remasters of all the Star Wars movies with Dolby Vision and Atmos support on Disney+ last night, fans didn’t know what to expect. Would there be even more changes to make the classic sci-fi films fit the cutting-edge technology of modern day? Or would we get another change to the Han and Greedo confrontation?
But fans were unexpectedly treated to a blast from the past in the form of the old 20th Century Fox fanfare that originally accompanied the original Star Wars trilogy films. Of course, something new had to come with the old: yet another change to the Han and Greedo scene was made in the new release, while Disney+ rolled out a new Lucasfilm logo to accompany its new Star Wars properties.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Colin Trevorrow broke out with the low-budget Sundance dramedy Safety Not Guaranteed, catching the attention of megaproducer Steven Spielberg, who hired him to direct Jurassic World. That film broke box office records, becoming the largest grossing non-James Cameron film ever released (at the time). Trevorrow was in line to direct Star Wars: Episode 9 before leaving that sequel over creative differences. His third directorial effort, The Book of Henry, was met with a lot of hate from both critics and audiences alike.
I still haven’t seen The Book of Henry, but while talking to Trevorrow about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, a film he co-wrote and produced, I did have to ask him about a claim I saw him make on social media – that The Book of Henry is a “carbon copy of Star Wars: A New Hope.” His explanation was actually pretty interesting.

The spin-off film took place immediately before the events of A New Hope, but the sacrifice of Jyn Erso and her team was barely mentioned. Now, a Marvel Star Wars comic book fills in those gaps.
