    Not really.

    He destroyed the Sith and brought balance to the Force. He was the Chosen One. So what the Jedi gleaned from the prophecy was correct.

    I mean, I know the prophecy didn't say "the Chosen One becomes a Sith and stays on the dark side for 23 years before bringing balance to the Force". But I don't think that counts as anyone misreading it. In fact, according to the ROTS novel it doesn't even say the Chosen One would be a Jedi.

    Did Qui Gon impose his will upon the Order's general perception of the prophecy by promising to train the boy? That is the question.

    Are the events of Labyrinth of Evil mentioned in the movies, or was Cato Neimoidia included in LOE because of the movie script?

    How exactly did the shroud of the Dark Side fall upon the galaxy? From the movies it appears to be a literal thing, that blocks a Jedi's future sight ability. But how did it come to be? Did it happen automatically, i.e. the dark side somehow overpowering the light side, or did Sidious do it somehow?

    If so, how? How could he alone do something like that?

    (please do not quote the Plagueis novel. I only want in movie rationale/explanations)

    The movie doesn't give a rationale, or explanation.

    Thus, EU explanations are as good as any.

    "Plagueis and Palpatine did it" in short.

    I feel like since the Sith had been extinct for so long, the Jedi were not used to feeling a Sith's presence. When Palpatine finally became chancellor of the Repubic, I feel like his strength in the Dark Side had clouded their minds and suspicions, seeing a they hadn't dealt with something like that in a over a millennium.

    Where were the Geonosis scenes filmed? Tunisia? I ask this because of the sand.

    Or did they just dump sand into a studio and make everything else CG?

    IMHO Palpatine been toying with Mace form the start , he plan all this to force Anakin to kill Mace and it's all like what he foreseen, I don't think Mace can beat the **** out of Palpatine no matter how good mace is, it's strange that the dark lord is that weak, he look too frail.

    I'm not sure if this has been covered before or not as I've only just joined, So sorry if it has. But why didn't Bail or the other senators call for a vote of no confidence with Palpatine?

    Their planets weren't being blockaded by the Trade Federation.

    Scenes like the arena in AOTC or the Gungan Army battle in TPM... were those 100% CG? Or did they spend like 20 minutes filming random grasslands, then digitally insert everything?

    Palpatine had the support of the Senate. The PT ends with him getting huge applause as he installs himself as a dictator. He controlled the Senate like a puppet master. That is made pretty clear in episodes II and III.

    The way they filmed it made it seem as if anybody could make the call and it just had to be one person. There was obviously more to it than that. So do you mean they had a vote on the vote?. Say for example if it was 51% or more Yes then he is voted out and somebody else is elected, and if it's less then 51% Yes he stays in. At least that way having the support of the senate makes sense.

    IIRC from an ancient "worst scene evAR" thread, the grasslands of Naboo were all CGI.

    I'll dig around some more and see what I can find...

    Those scenes were so dense. Every single image has so many things going on.
