It is indeed scary how the technology has consumed Star Wars. I tell you, George Lucas melded with A.I. to form a cyborg. He now only listens to his machine counterparts. There are others like him... waiting to attack. BUTLERIAN JIHAD!!!!!

True Wookies use Farrah Fawcet shampoo from 1978. It's the olny way to get that 70's sheen.

If they r gonna pull that crap, why not just put Qui Gon in there too? That'd make me a tad happier about the release, to see a few more shots w/ him

I think there will be both kinds of wookies in the movie, cause I've seen costumes & weapons and lucas won't be able to resist CG
I just hate stupid people.

GO JETS!!!!

I don't see much point in putting Qui Gon in a Jedi ghost scene that only Luke can see since Luke has never met Qui Gon.

I really hate this change. I know it will be explained in ROTS, but still. I don't like it at all.

We do have digital Wookiees!!!!!!!!!!!!



EP3: Digital Wookiees and Fight Scenes
Thu, Jul 29, 04 01:40:54 AM EDT


(os) Tonight we got news that the wookiees will rule Revenge of the Sith! OK, not really, but they do have a really cool scene they're filming in England right now. Here's some highlights of the new information.
Confirmation - DIGITAL WOOKIEES!
The actor that plays Tarfful is Michael Kingma. Kingma's movements not only define Tarfful, but will define all the digital wookiees in ROTS.

"The Wookiees in Revenge of the Sith will be realized through a combination of practical costumes and digital extras."

Also, we will see Wookiee extras are guiding in helicopter traffic, loading supplies on landing platforms, or barking orders to clones and Wookiees.

"In other cases, it's Wookiees leading troops into the fray, jumping out from behind cover and charging forward, or recoiling from a near miss of heavy ordnance."

Sounds like the wookiee is really going to shine in ROTS. Spies previously have shared pictures of the wookiee boats and a recent feature on starwars.com also featured plenty of Kashyyyk concept art that ties into this latest report. For more background, remember SPY REPORT: Death Becomes Them and SPY REPORT: Too. Many. Spoilers. Thanks to TinyTinyTony for the summary!
Did they really compare these scenes to Saving Private Ryan and Braveheart? Please be THAT good.

Sounds like they're completely throwing out all of the back history of the wookies as established in the EU. Wookies leading the troops? They go from that, to slaves of the Empire? Je ne comprende pas. I'm all for wookies, but it seems to me that, once again, George is taking an element of the OT, and using it poorly in the PT. And digital wookies? is the wookie costume so difficult? George is just getting lazy now.

But Wookiees might be doing things that would be impossible for humans in suits to do, like tree acrobatics at stuff.

And the fact that There are actually eight Wookiee suits is impressive enough for me--who expected Lucas to make a wookiee suit at all?

And, Wookies giving orders on their own planet seems to make sense, and who says the Empire couldn't just turn around and enslave them. Remember Palpatine hates non-humans, but he uses them if they can get him more power.

Who knows their planet better than anyone else. If it is a battle for the freedom of the wookies b4 the empire takes them, it would still fit in w/ the EU...I think.

I think it is because Anakin never lived to be forty-seven outside the Vader Mask. That's how he was when he ceased to be Anikan and became Vader.

Well, it might be that Anakin died at that age, & Vader was born. Maybe Palpy resurrected him after Obi killed him.

very nice...
i think Hayden should kinda put less emphasis on his angry face look...
i think he's kinda pushing it...

i mean do you ever think of Vader grinning under his helmut...
i like the look on his face when his mother dies and he looks up... his eyes just filling with pissed off rage!!!

Wow but those are cool...

Ok, should we start a thread now? "Sith Better Than Empire?"
Which is the more foolish, the fool (the OT) or the fool who follows (the PT)?
