    The comment about coming back with Coruscant changed is interesting as well. The only two things I can think of that make Coruscant different are the space battle, and whenever Palpatine becomes emperor. Obviously, the Tantive IV isn't coming back from the space battle, so I assume that they're coming back after the Empire is created. But why would Yoda and Obi-Wan come back? I'll assume they weren't living under a rock while the Empire was declared, so they have to be coming back to either go up against Palpatine, or pick up someone else. Padme? Anakin? Mace?

    I can ease some of your confusion by telling you that the pictures you've seen of Anakin onboard the Tantive IV are promotional shots only, to correspond to Vader's entrance onboard at the beginning of ANH.

    My guess is that the Republic has now become the Empire.

    no, I knew that.
    Its just that I always thought those 3 would end the film together, or close to it.
    But if they're heading back to Coruscant, I dont think the closing credits are happening anytime soon.

    So maybe my idea of the timeline is still correct, there is just more story after the part that I thought would be the end.

    I wonder at what point of the film this is?

    [face_laugh]Do you really?

    This BTH is a nice image, featuring Jim J. Bullock.....er, Jeremy Bulloch as one of the ship's pilots. The main point of curiousity here is Coruscant's noticably different look, which is alluded to in the caption. I believe it was confirmed in "Just the Facts" that there was one specific event which altered the appearance of things in the galaxy. Perhaps I am mistaken.

    I know that this has been mentioned countless times before, but the new Knollvision image is monumentally underwhelming (yes, this is the case with just about all of them). First, you wait several minutes (it seems) for the thing to load, and then - poof! It's as though your hand has closed on air. What a non-event. (sighs)

    Are you speaking specifically of the physical look of Coruscant?

    It's hard to tell anything from that photo.

    I'm guessing the one event would be the announcement of the Empire, I can't think of anything else that dramatic.

    My sense of the plot is also confused now by that BTH pic.

    I was under the impression that the Tantive IV would be like a getaway vehicle that would take Obi Wan and Yoda to their respective places of exile, sort of as if they are fleeing from some Imperial pursuers. Obviously my understanding of the film is influenced by the opening moments of ANH.

    But anyway, where would Obi Wan, Yoda, and Bail have been all together to return to Coruscant from? I assume that they are returning to a newly Imperial Coruscant ... but are they aware of that fact? Are they aware that they are walking into enemy territory? So many questions ...

    Okay. I would guess this is the last time that Yoda and Obi-Wan are on Coruscant, and *possibly* Bail Organa as well, if he is implicated in their escape.

    At this point, Obi-Wan is back from Utapau and Yoda is back from Kashyyyk and they somehow met up with Bail.

    They presumably have lost contact with Mace and the Jedi Council and are going to Coruscant to figure out what the heck is going on.

    How much do they know at this point? Only that a whole crapload of stuff has happened. [face_thinking]

    That's my educated guess.

    You're probably right, Dustin.

    Bail and the Tantive IV do get out and about, on the frontlines. In "Obsession 3" he rescues Obi-Wan and Anakin and (presumably) takes them to Boz Pity.

    So it's possible Bail was out in some battle and picked up Obi-Wan and Yoda, back from their respective planets, and they finally see what's been going down on Coruscant- probably Palpatine as Emperor and a very bad Anakin.

    wow, reading these boards - and this thread - has got me so amped for this . . . i justset my screensaver prefs to use the folder of the 70 BTH photos I've saved so far!

    Looking at some of these again - like the 6th one, of Obi Wan and two others walking across a beam - has me wondering how amazing the fisnished scenes will be!

    It seems that (why is everything underlined?) the Art of Revenge is now available for non subscribers.

    Our 3NS board is having problems with Mozilla/Firefox.

    IIRC, the Art of Revenge becomes available to the general public the week after Hyperspace.

    Last night's was alright - a couple of "Hammerheads" ready for action. I doubt we'll be seeing this in the film though.

    I am annoyed to all hell that Lucasfilm is releasing the ROTS trailer on TV before Hyperspace members get to see it. I went to the OFFICIAL SITE HYPERSPACE CUSTOMER SERVICE page and submitted an angry email. I encourage everyone to do the same.

    I've submitted a statement as well. What do we have to loose? I hope that more of us follow suit and complaints continue to be submitted.




    :cool: Mace Windy,
    too windy for spoilers!

    that Knollvision is actually pretty cool, just because the set is so cool/familiar.

    Alderaan Cruiser.

    Awesome BTH tonight! I've been curious about Felucia and it looks really unique and colorful.

    Wow - pretty alien environment.

    That's really cool - you can barely even see the phalanx of Clonetroopers - I think they're in the right side of the frame.

    It's kind of hard to notice in the foliage, but there's a new kind of walker smack-dab in the middle of that picture.

    Felucia looks very cool. I can't wait to see it on screen. :D

    I'm not sure if it's been done so already, but the latest photoreceptor just cleared up a plot point in ROTS. I know that people have debated that maybe Anakin doesn't kill Dooku in cold blood on the TF cruiser, but instead kills him in self defense. However, the quote for the photoreceptor picture pretty much states that Anakin kills Dooku after being goaded by Palpatine.

    Nobody brought up the AoR of Mygeeto? Apparently they dropped the ice worm idea, so I wonder if they dropped the rest of that concept as well and went with the ash idea or if they're just two aspects of the same planet?

    OH. MY. GOD.

    Best photos EVER. :eek: :eek:

    That's it... this movie is going to rule planet Earth, all those who stand in it's way will be destroyed.

    The ballet looks incredible.

    Was that Obi-Wan and Anakin actually laughing??

    Everyone is fighting Palpsidious. They know.

    And I'll say it again, there's more emotion in the photos we've seen than in all the rest of the movies combined.
