Anakin: I made it out of a japor snippet ay.
I'm hoping it won't have the same effect that the actors did on the audience in Evil Angels - the Azaria Chamberlain story. When I was in the theatre to watch that everyone laughed when almost the entire cast of the comedy company kept appearing as characters in the film.
Rumour has it some of the Australian actors will be in the first set of Ep2 figures as well.
If they have talking figures like ep 1 the aussie figurines would be interesting.
"pull my finger!"
I want the Nudge fig!
Desert Tatooine = Aussie outback.
"Beru!! There's a redback on the 'fresher!"
"What yer waiting for it to finish? fan it with your cap!"
I can just imagine what would happen if some tourist gets drunk in the aussie version of the cantina
"wash it say on the can...funnelweb?"
bartender "nah mate, that's the list of ingredients"
Can you imagine Rose Byrne as an action figure?
Tatooine Desert = Aussie outback.
Anakin is flying along on a speeder bike through the desert. He is weaving all over the place at maximum speed. He stops and meets Padme who was watching.
Anakin: Whoa, Padme! You've got to have a go at that thing when you're drunk. I just did. Did you see me? I just narrowly missed a rock!
Padme: Boy, you were drunk. That was Ayer's Rock.
heheheh, and coruscant=sydney cbd (although we have a *really* long way to go)...
I just want to see Darth Vader in stubbies and thongs.
Coruscant = Sydney
Jedi master council chamber = a typical pub in Sydney.
Every jedi master has a beer in one hand, there are empty beer cans all over the floor and they are all absolutely pissed.
john howard = borsk fey'lya???
It's an injustice that the little fat kid from Hey Dad hasn't yet landed a part
ARTHUR MACARTHUR FOR PORKINS IN EP3!!
I think we need to start a petition...
The little fat kid from Hey Dad = ummmmm, an ugnaught?
Problem with that is that he's not a little kid anymore. Get the orange flightsuit ready.
accents are recognisable in ep II.....
It can't be that bad. Although Mas Ammeda's voice in the trailer did sound a little too different for my liking.
I don't think that accents should be such of an issue. In fact, don't you think it would be odd if everyone in the whole universe talked with the same accent?
Besides, no-one complained about Ewan in TPM, so why should it matter that there are a few distinguishable characters in AOTC/Ep3?
No big deal. But if a character had a blatantly bad Aussie accent, then it would distract the audience a little. At least that's what I think.
What sort of accent are we talking about though?
I mean, there's your Heath/Ledger/Hugh Jackman sort of accent, which, whilst you can still identify it, fits in with the rest of the characters.
Then there's your Paul Hogan/Steve Irwin sort of accent. "Crickey! This is a knife!"
And even then, voice is very much a part of a character. A shady lookin' thief with a Cockney accent is more of a thief than a shady lookin' thief with an American accent.
hugh/heath all gfet speech trainign to sound american
whereeas steve and paul dont
yeah, I know, but you can still tell that they're Australian.
Claudia Karvans part got cut from the final movie.
I think I know what her part is in the movie from back in my spoiler days. It's probably better that she got cut, it would make a good DVD extra though.
