"The fight that weve been hearing about"

Author

In a couple of Episode I making-of things, George Lucas says in reference to the Obi/Qui/Maul fight something to the effect of "we've heard about this in the other movies, but we've never seen it" and something like "this is what we've been waiting to see". I don't remember ever hearing about the duel of the fates in the OT. I thought the duel that people were waiting to see (that we had heard about) was the Obi-Wan Anakin fight in Episode III? Did I miss a reference in the OT, or is he just talking about something as vague as Obi-Wan's "Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the old republic" line? I'm confused, any help here would be hot.

Yeah, I think for the most part your right. But I still don't get the whole "we've heard about this/waited for this" thing. I know it was mentioned, and it's the only thing that leads me to believe that he might be referring to something else. He just seemed so specific, thats all.

"For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times. Before the Empire"

That's what Lucas was referring to. That one line tells us that years before Obi-Wan tells Luke, there were hundreds or thousands of Jedi and they were everywhere.

I thought he was referring to Jar Jar, cause I know that is a character I have waited for since 1983.

what fight have we been looking forward to and hearing about. LOL


maybe someone can invent a time machine so we can go back to 1977 and bring the good george lucas back to the present so he can throw the evil sith lucas down a core shaft like vader does to the emperor in return of the jedi, LOL.

A GOUT is a George's Original Unaltered Trilogy, the "bonus discs" that were released last year. It's a play on words; the marketing material referred to it as the "Original Unaltered Trilogy." We couldn't let that pass, of course.

Holy crap!! RemixerBoss is still around!!! And he is still going on about the "fuckwit" thing! Man, talk about not letting it go and not having anything better to do. There is no way you are that bored man! Go back to school or something. Find a job. Head over to your local Gamestop and buy a crappy used Game Cube, they are only $39.99 and it will give you something to do. If you are hard up for cash, find out the location of your local library. They have books you can rent for free! Free entertainment! You could even volinteer there and teach kids how to read. There is no need to waste your life like this. You only get one go around at this, everyday you are a little older and closer to death. Make the best of the time you have. It is really sad to go on for month about being called a "fuckwit" by some dude on the internet you don't even know.
