I do have many questions, though...



I read somewhaere that Artoo and Threepio never had their memories wiped...so why does Threepio get that ordered at the end (Of course, this may have been a fraudulent quote attributed to George Lucas)



George reserves the right to change his mind about anything in Star Wars, even twenty years after the film is released, he might change it all. He's making this up as he goes.



Quote:

Is Palpatine not human, i.e., a shape-shifter? I realize he later attributed his appearance to his confrontation with Mace Windu, but he looked pretty shriveled and decrepit in Eps. 1 and 2 (at least in his cloak).



That's because George is making it up as he goes.


Quote:

Why don't the Stormtroopers in the original trilogy sound like Jango Fett?



Because the actor who plays Jango Fett would have been about 12 in 1977. That wouldn't sound very scary, would it. Remember, it's a movie. But don't worry, I'm sure that in a new version George will redub all the stormtrooper voices..... with Ahmed Best!



Quote:

Why can't Artoo fly in Eps. 4, 5 and 6?


Because they couldn't make the robot fly in 1977. Hell, they just about couldn't make it roll in some scenes.

Your thoughts?




I'm not trying to be a jerk here. I'm kind of pointing out the obvious. Why didn't Yoda jump around and do Jedi-Fu in Empire strikes back? BECAUSE HE WAS A PUPPET. A lot of things in those old movies were done because of the limitations of the time. George throws off those limitations in the new movies, then retouches the old movies or invents "reasons" why he hasn't broken the continuity of his story.

It's not Gospel. It'll NEVER all match up with all the comic books and videogames and tie in novels where you once read that the Wookies were powerful Jedi and Darth Vader was raised by Ewoks.

This stuff gets my ire up, because people just keep trying to make it all link up. People are going on online about how Leia says she remembers her mother, and now we see she was just a newborn. So now they're all arguing over and over about how she remembers her mother by using the Force, or whatever.

It'll NEVER all line up. So for those folks, here's your option: Understand that it's just a movie. In the 80's George wanted Leia to say one thing, and now, 20 years later, when he gets to the scene, he wanted it to play a different way.

The other possibility, if you really have to reconcile it, was to just say that Leia was wrong. She THOUGHT she saw her real mother, but she was mistaken, or dreaming. People make mistakes all the time. I made one by seeing any of the prequels. Darth Vader is now ruined for me.


"Nooooooooooooooooooo!"
