    Again this is neither an answer nor a reason.

    I have rarely seen this kind of effort, outside of politics, put into not answering a simple question.

    Yes, but when I eat It's not solely a need, it's something I want. Like the Fox fanfare. I want the Fox fanfare. That is the answer.

    Because the answer for me is that I want the Fox fanfare. Really simple. Just want. That's it.

    Here's another example, I just smoked a cigarette. I wanted a cigarette. So I smoked it. It was something I wanted. I want the Fox fanfare. I probably won't get it, but I want it.

    Also, oddly, how is wanting something not an a reason? I want because I want it. That's it. I honestly can't wrap my head around how that is not an answer?

    Here's the definition of the word "answer" just for the heck of it. From Webster's dictionary, no less!:

    1an·swer

    noun \ˈan(t)-sər\

    Definition of ANSWER

    1
    a : something spoken or written in reply to a question

    So, somebody asks me, "Hey, do you want to hear the Fox fanfare before a Star Wars movie?" and I answer "Yes, I want to hear the fox fanfare before a Star Wars movie because that's what I want to hear." Note usage of the term "want" twice.

    Because you haven't given any actual reason.

    Wanting something for no reason is without reason.

    Dude, I bet you are in politics.

    Laters - no Jedi Council Forums for me at weekends, and it is already well into Friday.

    The Fox fanfare will not be appearing in front of the new movies, full stop. However, I don't see what's so hard to grasp about a pure preference that someone may have for it appearing.

    "What is your favourite colour?"
    "Blue"
    "Why?"
    "Because I have a preference for it."

    That is an answer. It may be a restatement of "Because it is my favourite colour" but it is still an answer. And indeed, it does inform, since it tells you there is no deeper reason beyond preference.

    The more important question right now is...

    is the Fox Fanfare still canon? :eek:

    They would be foolish if they don't place their logo in front of the films. I doubt they would make a deal with another distributor company, like Paramount. They paid $4 bil for LFL, specifically just for Star Wars, so I would suspect they would distribute the films under the Disney logo.

    I'm not defending Disney nor would I want to see a Magic Kingdom logo in front of a SW film, but it's just something that I could see them doing.

    Do you always get this worked up? I'd hate to see a major life event. Whew.

    These are the type of threads I knew would be coming lol. The Disney Trilogy is not even completed & fans are fighting. The Disney Trilogy is really not that serious for people to be fiighting over. The fanfare is in the GL6 films the Disney Trilogy won't feature it

    Notice Williams actually uses the Fox Fanfare before his Star Wars theme in this montage! It's essential!

    I understand that the Fox Fanfare will be reverse engineered by a roomful of techs, on loan from Area 51, in the Secret R&D Laboratory beneath the Magic Kingdom. Right next door to the Cryo-Labs where Walt's frozen body lies in repose.

    The Fox fanfare could always make an appearance as a Force ghost.

    no its not. It belongs to Disney now. Disney owns Star Wars

    It was nice in a nostalgic sense, but has never had any relation to the story of the movie's, other than an indication of which company distributed them.

    It will definitely be strange without it but I guess I can deal. Much worse has happened to the opening credits of Star Wars movies anyway.

    Just play Binary Sunset. It starts with whatever logo they put in (Touchstone, Disney, BuenaVista), then ends epically after the LUCASFILM Logo fades away.

    After that, enter "A long time ago...." and BOOM! Opening crawl.

    These are new movies, new writers, new directors, new executive producers, new company. Id don't expect these new Disney movies to be like or feel like the other 6 films.

    Putting aside the Fox fanfare issue, this statement paints a picture that is quite different to the reality:
    • Kathleen Kennedy, the executive producer, is a long-time friend of George Lucas
    • Lawrence Kasdan, one of the writers, co-wrote The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi
    • George Lucas wrote the initial treatments for the next trilogy and remains creative consultant on these new films
    • Lucasfilm is still in charge, and its new parent company has been associated with the Star Wars brand since 1987
    In addition, nobody who pays $4b for a brand is going to change a winning formula. (And the formula clearly is successful, otherwise why spend that amount of money?) They most certainly will be like the other six films--they'd be nuts to stray too far from what works.
