Anyone else totally disregard Lumpy being Chewbaccas's son?

Most people disregard the HS, including George, so they probably disregard Itchy too. Did he appear in other EU novels? If they really wanted to make him canon, Chewies wife could have at least been in ROTS. I never liked the idea of Chewie abanddoning his family on account of a life debt and becoming a rotten father and husband. Also makes Han a jerk for not releasing him from it. The Chewies family idea was a bad one from the start, as bad as the rest of the HS.


The next movie takes place 20 years later I think, and Chewies kid must not even be 6 in the Holiday Special, so it could of been much later when Chewie actually settled down for a bit with the mother and had a kid.

Anyone else totally disregard Obi-Wan being Anakin's friend?

It's too bad that George didn't commission a Star Warsy, or whatever you call star wars fanatics, to go over the scripts to look for inconsisticies. I think Parmount does that with it's Star Trek projects. I think George could of found a way to have Padme die a bit later, maybe just have a text on the screen 2 - years later. Or something. Anakins reaction still could of been just as strong maybe.

What were your original expectations for the PT?
Time
I know I was dissapointed at how the movies were said to not live up to expectations. I didn't see them until much later cause I didn't really want to see them. But the hype behind part 3, and knowing it showed anikin turning to darth made me watch them. I guess the first two parts weren't as good as they should of been. I want to see that Phantom edit to see if that makes part 1 any better.

ROTS Easter Egg - I Am Highly Frightened

1. Judging from the tone of your post you like to argue on internet forums.

2.Please prove that LFL intended this to be relased freely (a link perhaps? youtube means nothing - I've seen a lot of pirated content being pulled off from it, including LFL/LEC stuff posted by SW-fans).


1. "There are various people who call themselves "SW fans":
There are "I like everything that has SW logo on it", easy-to-please people, who accept everything. " - That line reeks of egocentricism. If you were humble you wouldn't add "I'm not like that".

2. I doubt they tacked on an extra dollar for such a short clip. The cost of the dvd is likely from the other content. Like the hours of documentaries, the commentary. I can see the justification of the price myself. I kind of doubt that Lucas is gonna offer a .50 cent cheaper dvd without the easter egg cause it wouldn't sell.

1. Sure. But not every joke is great, despite good intentions.

2. So I can't be so easy on them. I'm spending my $ here, so I have right to be serious. In American language: I pay, so I demand. And I demand quality.

3. There are various people who call themselves "SW fans":
There are "I like everything that has SW logo on it", easy-to-please people, who accept everything. I can't do that, because my individualism means I have own taste and preferences.
There are "faster, more intense!" people, who'd gladly mix SW with Matrix, StarTrek or whatever else they like. I can't do that, because of my sense of style, which rejects such "mixes" (would you like a pineapple-anchovy pizza?)

4. And who am I? And what do I want?

5. What I'd like to see being done - where the $ should be spent - is e.g. restoring stuff like Biggs&Luke scene on Tatooine. I saw it on CD-ROM encyclopedia in lousy (quicktime?) quality. I want it transferred on DVD. Instead of wasting time on dancing Yoda, waste that time on cleaning that source video, to present it to us in decent quality, so that we can throw our $ on buying it.



1. First off, I guess I'm honored you devoted a page long responce to me. I never said the joke was great tho. I just said peoples responce to the easter egg may be overdramatic. I don't think that this is any worst than moving having blooper reels. They ruin the tone of the movie, but you don't have to watch them.

2. You didn't have to pay anything for that clip. It was linked for free. Should you of decided to watch it on the dvd then I'm sure you bought that dvd for the movie, and not extras, cause it don't contain any. Besides that hidden one.

3. I wouldn't say being a fanatic rather than a fan is any better. It's very possible to enjoy Star Wars without having to delve into the whole universe and start reading the books and spend thousands on merchandise.

4. I wasn't looking for your life story, sad to say. I'm not sure anyone was.

5. That is one thing I never got. People complain about the scenes added to the movie, yet at the same time demand access to more. Some people actually want the work print of Star Wars to be released.
