If you have any images of how you imagine these, or other, characters in the Prequel Era you have in your heads (or on paper!) please post them here! And also, if you could, list how far before the original SW film the image takes place. Also, if you want you can put up images of planets, settings, vehicles, buildings, technology, and any other characters from the era we were all robbed of with Lucas's "canon" versions.
You don't have to put up images per say, but it would be awesome if any of you could. Descriptions will suffice if that's all you have! I personally am not that talented artistically so, for now, I'll go with a verbal depiction of the characters.
I see a "young Anakin" (about 20-I hope none if us want the 8 year old we got in TPM!) looking a lot like Luke/Mark Hamil, except with darker and slightly longer hair. I see the older Anakin appearing more fatherly and benevolent (leading up to Sebastian Shaw's Force Ghost in ROTJ). Finally, I see Anakin slowly losing his humanity and becoming more Machine than Man with all of the injuries instilled upon him via the Clone Wars, eventually falling into the Volcano (or Nuclear Reactor) which necessitated the iconic life-preserving suit.
I envision Obi-Wan already being middle-aged by Episode I and having shoulder length hair and being pretty muscular. Then by Episode II, I see him having shorter hair and appearing almost "verbatim" as he does in "Silent Drifting" from Marvel Comics. In Episode III, my Obi-Wan will show signs of being closer to his visage in the OT, now adopting a full body cloak. NOTE: My Episode I is 40 years prior to SW 77, Episode II being 35 years prior, and Episode III 20 years prior.
The Emperor and Yoda (both making infrequent appearances) appear the same as they did in the OT. Puppet Yoda...NO CGI! He's 900 already by ROTJ so a few decades before that he shouldn't look much younger. The Emperor will appear like Clive Revill's Monkey Eyed Emperor from the OOT version of ESB in all hologram appearances, but just like Ian McDiarmid's ROTJ Emperor in all live appearances.
Now for Your thoughts and Images of YOUR Prequels!!
-Someone, someday, needs to bring back the LIGHT SIDE to Star Wars. Has anyone else noticed striking similarites between the character of Anakin/Vader and George Lucas, or is it just me?
-It's called STAR WARS. NOT "Episode IV: A New Hope". Kids, get this straight.
-Please read the Archie Goodwin daily SW comics: Too good to be forgotten!
