    I like this theory - in ROTS he's on the senate and in ANH they senate has been wiped and replaced by regional governors... He's dead he's dead he's dead *happy dance* Hehehehe

    Eh? When Tarkin said the Emperor had "dissolved the council permanently" he didn't mean in lime.

    The Senators - including Senator Binks - would still be around; they'd just be unemployed. He's probably doing his on happy dance in Theed at the end of ROTJ.

    Yeah but you saying Jar Jar is still alive on it's own shows why my theory is way better than yours? :p

    All I know is that George raped my childhood by placing Jar Jar's voice saying "Wesa free" in the victory montage in ROTJ. [face_plain]

    Before Episode 1 was release I said that Jar Jar would be the "Ewok" of the Prequels.

    People would either love him or hate him......little did I know how many people would hate him. :)

    They should release on DVD the "before George got more money than sense" versions of SW, unaltered, in all their grainy brilliance. :)

    The irony is I'm sure he'd make more money that way than by tarting them up in new clothes like he does these days.

    I'm not saying he doesn't have the right, I'm just saying it's really crap this way.

    bah it's all good, I'm not bothered. I actually enjoy most of the changes.
    I'm not that fussy, as long as the core elements are there and John Williams' soundtrack hasn't been replaced by the Jamster frog I'm happy

    Don't go giving them ideas, Jonnage. [face_plain]


    Actually, the score is the one area I'm really anal about. Some people have suggested throwing in Anakin's theme, or Battle of the Heroes in the OT... arg! I cannot stand the notion! Even the Imperial March in ANH would drive me nuts!

    I haven't watched the deevs yet, but I heard talk of them including Darth's Theme in the ANH. Did that ever eventuate? I can envision it being used instead of the four note fanfare that accompanies the Star Destroyer flying towards the Death Star, though I do prefer that bit the way it is.

    Also there's no need for Anakin's theme in the OT, since Darth's Theme is incorporated into Anakin's Theme anyway, and Darth's Theme plays it's last when he dies on the Death Star.

    The talk is just to have it play during his entrance on the Tantive IV, and that's it.

    It's a good idea, since we associate Vader with that march (which is awesome), just like we associate The Shark with the Jaw's theme.

    It would tie ANH together with the rest of the saga to give it more of a flow.

    it's just a shame that Johnny Williams didn't come up with the Imperial March before ESB.

    It so isn't a good idea.

    Why? Because WHO GIVES A FLYING HUGGARD WHAT WE ASSOCIATE WITH VADER NOW!!!!!

    The point is, ANH is a cultural artifact in it's originality. It is, warts and all, continuity and non-continuity, the reason we all got into SW in the first place. The score is *incredibly* important in that reasoning for me, and for many other fans. It would just completely ruin the film if we went fiddling with the score for continuity's sake.

    Star wars is just as good. I'm happy with most of the changes. But in all honesty ANH is so narrow and confined considering how each other movie opened up this huge world.

    *waits for things to be thrown*
