Thread: Action in ROTJ extremely delayed

  1. #21
    I just wish they could take the horrible cartoon Joh Yowza out of my face in Jabba's Palace. I am fine with 90% of the 'special edition' changes but that one (I believe) is the cringiest moment of the OT for me. I'm good with the drummers and singers and frog harmonica players.... or ... well.... yeah I can live with that I guess.

    I actually like the opening with Vader and then the droids going to Jabba's palace. We see 2 of the biggest parts of the plot in the first 5 minutes.

    I see something new every year it seems... You ever notice the odd treadwell/mouse droids in the opening scene on Death Star II?

    Yeah I noticed them, took a long time, but eventually did see them. Another thing I may have spotted for the first time recently, is what I believe is Vader's TIE Fighter in the hanger. I saw it along time ago, but I always assumed it was a TIE Bomber hanging in there, then I looked closer, and I think it looks more like Vader's TIE.

    I wished I'd known about that site when I was making my model of R5D4. Would have come in handy.

    my daughter is into cosplay, this site is a godsend for references.
    we've used it for everything, from Padme & Leia to wonder woman & black widow.

    Wow! This is fantastic. I had no idea this site existed.

    Worth mentioning while on the subject: Watching the opening minutes of ROTJ outside of the context of the rest of the movie, this is a rare moment in the original trilogy where we see Imperial Officers and the Death Squad Commander simply going about their business without being an immediate threat to the Rebels. Until the Imperial Officer that I believe is named Endicott speaks the line "Inform the commander that Lord Vader's shuttle has arrived" in a fairly menacing tone, it would be easy to mistake these characters as being on the protagonists' side if you didn't have any prior context.

    I'm replying to my own comment here but it occurred to me that Endicott was featured again in the deleted scenes with Jerjerrod on Death Star 2 with the whole dilemma of blowing up the forest moon at the Emperor's command. This would have been a fourth storyline in the film's climax and was likely (though unfortunately as it would have provided some humanity to the Empire) removed because it was one too many things going on. As we mentioned earlier, this many storylines was the error of The Phantom Menace's climax.
