While watching Episode III, I began to see the Tantive IV with Yoda, Obi Wan, and Bail Organa walking the halls that R2 and C-3P0 will escape from only one movie later, and I thought to myself. I wish this was what the whole prequel trilogy was like. So I have assembled some ideas that would make the Prequel trilogy resonate more with Original Trilogy fans. 1. Darth Maul He is equally as cool as Darth Vader, but they kill Maul in the first movie. Imagine if he was the Darth Vader of the Prequel Trilogy. He kills Qui Gon, fights Obi Wan, but escapes to fight another day. Obi Wan would not be bent on revenge but in Attack of the Clones, it would be personal. Anakin could act out wanting revenge for the death of Qui Gon. In Revenge of the Sith, he would finally be killed, either in place of Grevious or Dooku. 2, Naboo/Alderaan This wish is more for the people who have seen the saga in chronological order. What is the difference between Naboo and Alderaan in all reality? A peaceful planet with beautiful landscapes. Imagine if it was Alderaan that was one of the focal planets of the prequel trilogy. Yeah the gungans can live on the planet if you want, they are being blockaded. Granted you would have to have to explain where Palpatine, Padme, and Bail Organa fit in the Buracracy but it could be done. But every time you see Naboo imagine it is really Alderaan, it would make more sense that Leia goes to live there. When the Death Star finally blows Alderaan up, it would mean more to the viewer. It would mean as much to the viewer as it did to Leia, as opposed to "Woah, they blew up a planet? not cool" 3. Ships/Tantive IV Every Prequel episode it seems that Padme gets a new ship, and they lacked any personality. Lets continue down the Naboo is now Alderaan line. Padme is Queen of Alderaan, her ship could be the Tantive IV. Having that ship in the prequel trilogy that would be the equivalent of the Millenium Falcon would be brilliant. First off it would be nice to see the Rebel Blockade Runner actually run a blockade. Then, following the opening crawl of A New Hope we see the ship captured. 4. Bail Organa For someone who gets one of Anakin and Padme's kids, he is a background character in Episode 2, only coming to the forefront in the end of Episode 3 only to take Leia to Alderaan. Part of me wishes that he were around from the very beginning as Padme's mentor in Episode 1 as Anakin had Obi Wan and Palpatine 5. Dooku Following the Darth Maul is still the Sith Apprentice. He could be the Shadow Sepratist puppet master as opposed to Sidious/Palpatine. Dooku could have been a Jedi who simply gotten too involved in politics and did discover the Sith in power in the Republic and believing the Jedi should leave the establishment. Yeah he could fight against Obi Wan and Anakin, but having Jedi fighting Jedi over belief only teaming up to fight Maul or whomever would be interesting. 6. The Vader Suit/Grevious Grevious appears only in Revenge of the Sith as a threshold villian for Obi Wan to fight later in the movie. His cybernetic suit was supposed to be the prototype for Vader's suit. Either one of two things needed to happen with his character. 1. Replace Grevious with Maul, have Maul's legs chopped up and give him the cybernetic legs seen in TCW, maybe even a resperator like Grevious's. Option 2. EU backstory says that Grevious fought in the Battle on Geonosis. Show it. Have some Jedi fight him and lose, maybe Ki Adi Mundi Kit Fisto and Mace Windu can force him to retreat. Then when he appears you understand, that is Grevious he was in the last one. 7. Other Then there is the whole usual Jar Jar sucks, Anakin is way to young in Episode 1 then hits a growth spirt into Hayden Christensen while Padme is still Natalie Portman Thoughts anyone?
