Thread: Disowning the Prequels

  1. #61
    Keep the Prequels and the OT, should have never made the ST...
    Always a pleasure to meet a Jedi.

    We need to be reminded that Lucas originally scripted the AOTC saber battle w/o the Force exchange originally. But ILM felt that Yoda going into that kind of speed right away might seem a bit unbelievable so the Force exchange was suggested (to Lucas BTW) as a way to build up to the duel. As a rationale, Dooku suggested the use of sabers as a possible intimidation factor assuming Yoda's out-of-touch longevity with a saber. Assuming that's the case, the mere idea of Yoda traveling with a saber is a bit questionable unless we go by the assumption of that being some form of Jedi edict. Well, even Gandalf had to pick up a sword, so.....

    A special effect without a story is a pretty boring thing. -George Lucas

    When you consider a saber has other practical uses besides being a weapon, it would make sense to carry one at all times, anyway. And as a defense/offense against blaster bolts coming from multiple directions, it may yet be necessary. It's also quite clear why Yoda doesn't have his by ESB (real-world limitations of puppetry aside) - he lost it in the Senate Chamber, and didn't have time or materials to make a new one.

    He had twenty years....and he was on the tantive iv before he went to dagobah. He totally could have come up with a grocery list. Or had bail go to the temple and grab one laying on the ground from the dead younglings.

    Agreed. If they make a Obi-Wan movie, and to have him leave Tatooine. That would give credence to Yoda never leaving. But liek you said, how difficult would it be to assemble one en route? Supposedly the parts used to build one are everyday items aside from the crystal.

    I wonder tho, would he even desire (or see the need) to have another one? It almost seems like Luke in VIII will be similar, self exiled and no interest left in the Force... retired so to speak, and maybe a loss in the faith-until, something makes it somewhat inspirational, or necessary again. Luke's dialogue in the trailer might be a result also of him being even less committed to the Force as Yoda was, we know his hundreds of years experience well surpasses Luke (but, what about them midichlorians? LOL).

    I do think Luke's comment about the Jedi ending is taken out of context. While I'm sure the events surrounding his Academy made him ponder this and that, he probably still believes in the Force. He may think the Jedi teachings of old need to end, thus be reborn into something different. Especially since they seem to be prime targets for the Darkside.

    yeah, maybe. How Hamill has mentioned the direction of the character is at now isn't what he ever thought or expected, It'll be interesting to indeed see what it all means.
