    Lol, I can't believe some of you are still believing the novel! Ok, everyone knows that in AOTC Anakin is 19 and Padme is 24, right?

    That's funny, I don't remember anything in either film to suggest their exact ages. The range is correct. So everything is off by a year or less. AOTC is about ten years after TPM.

    It's not so much that we believe the novel, just the statements from GL, Rick McCallum, and Ben Burtt completely concurring with the info in the novel.

    Obviously the "Anakin, Anakin" is Liam Neeson. Now whether the "Noooooo" is intended to be qui-gon and it is just edited poorly I don't know. However, I guess I just always assumed it was the Tusken Raider screaming "Nooooo."

    I have an MP3 of the clip from the movie....I just don't know how to post it on here. So if anyone wants it, they can tell me how to post it and I will.

    It(the sound clip)has been posted somewhere here. But most agree that it is probably QG, mostly from the quotes from key people such as Ben Burtt.

    Just prior to the start of AOTC, is Anakin's birthday. Information like that is on the part of the writer or editor.

    Hey, I just meant that I go by the movie and the movie only. Screw the novel. The guy who wrote the novel isn't the director of the movies, now is he? I was just saying that George can change whatever he wants. And I remember reading something a while back, right before the movie came out stating that 19 and 24 were the ages of Anakin & Padme. And how do you explain the fact that Padme's age was 25 in the book? Was her birthday right before AOTC too? Just wondering. Like I said, I go by the movie. :)

    I believe you are contradicting yourself there. You say that you believe the source that states their ages are 19 and 24, even though you don't know where that info is from. I know for darn sure its not in the movies, yet you say that you only believe the movies. But you will not believe the AOTC novel. Don't you think that the novel is a higher degree of canon than something you read "somewhere".

    ok this may sound really crazy but i think who yelled the "NOOOOOOOOO!!!" is none other than...


    COUNT DOOKU!!!

    no seriously imagine what Dooku's yell would sound like, i swear it fits his voice perfectly. if this is his voice, we can only expect to hear it in episode 3!!! if it is in epsiode 3 we could expect to find it during the anakin-dooku duel when he finally kills dooku. THE REASON FOR THE DISTINCT VADER BREATH AT THE END IS BECAUSE HIS DEATH MARKS ANAKINS TURN TO VADER!!!

    think about it, it makes sense!!!

    you know, if we're take the star wars.com quote as ultimate proof than are we to asume that's qui-gons breath at the end too? They just messed up and it sounds like vader..?

    Well it was in an interview. In the Insider I think. Or on the official site. It was official, that much I do know. But whatever. Nobody really cares about my opinion anyways, and that's perfectly okeyday. Just go fight about Qui-Gon or whatever the heck you all fight about now. Geez. All we can do is speculate and attack each other. Let's just consider the whole f-ing thing a moot point right now until the Flanneled One figures it out. I'm tired of arguing. And I'm sure someone will come up with a reply to this. Too bad I'm not gonna read it! :)

    Padme

    Its not that nobody cares about your post, its that its contradictory and a very minute point. It concerns only the novel anyway.

    The quote from Burtt is from "Ask a Council Member" on the OS:

    Q: Do I hear the voice of Qui-Gon Jinn shouting, "Anakin, Anakin... No!", in Yoda's apartment after Anakin attacks the Tusken Raiders?
    A: Yes indeed, the voice that Yoda hears is that of Qui-Gon Jinn.


    It has nothing to do with Vader's breathing, anything more than the voice is just speculation. The question was very specific. The answer was to the point and fairly easy to understand.

    No, it sounds nothing like him, but accept the fact that it is QG. Why it sounds nothing like him is beyond me.

    You guys are all very entertaining.

    1. It's supposed to be Qui-Gon
    2. It's some other guy that did the voice.
    3. They made it sound like he was getting flushed down the toilet so we wouldn't question or even notice that it's not Liam saying NOOOOOOO!
    4. Star Wars fans are not stupid so we picked up on it....thus this thread was born.
    5. Their explaination would be he was fading back into the force, or being sucked into it, whatever you want to believe. Remember, Qui-Gon is supposed to be the first one to ever be able to keep his identity after death.
    6. I think it was Frank Oz doing the voice of Qui-Gons' NOOOO
    7. So it sounds like some other dude saying "no" with his head in the toilet, so what!

    Well, I don't know if it's the exact sample or not (I don't think it is), but I took the "Nooo!" that Ewan said at the end of TPM, time-compressed it and picthed it down 7 semitones and it was a good approximation of what you heard in AOTC. So it could very well be an alternate take of Ewan's "no".
    The "No" in AOTC itself seems obviously pitched -- it's something you learn to listen for in recording, that slightly fake vocal sound that's very prevalent in country music (thanks to AutoTune).

    One thing is for sure, it ain't Liam Neeson!

    Perhaps it's a voice from Anakin's future. Perhaps Luke's NO!! on Bespin? Or the crying voice of a Jedi who he will slaughter in the future?

    Great Scott! Of course it's Liam Neeson. Does your voice sound the same when you yell? And I mean really loudly. Someone earlier said that Lucas confirmed it was Neeson on Page 1 of this thread. Both the script and the book say it was Qui-Gon. I do think the book is canonical, since it has what the script and screenplay had in them.

    It was haunting to here Qui-Gon like that. He was so concerned about Anakin. He cared about him, and he didn't want him to do such an awful thing as kill those Tusken Raiders. Althoug the Sand People are vicious, Anakin would being just as bad as them for slaughtering them. The book says that Anakin heard the warning, and did not listen.

    Of course I've heard that and yes, I've read the AOTC novel too. But I also heard that Neeson didn't do anything AT ALL for Episode II. Nodda!

    But I do take the voice to be Qui-Gon's (the character) not Neeson the actor.

    You ought to listen to the documentories on TPM DVD. Liam Neeson has such a low voice. He doesn't sound normal in this new movie he's made with Harrison Ford. I think that it was probably Liam Neeson's voice.

    If it isn't Neeson, I'm certain that it was Qui-Gon's ghost who was warning Anakin. Qui-Gon must have been in the currents of the Force, pleading with Anakin not to slaughter the Tusken Raiders. That "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" was probably when Anakin wouldn't stop. Anakin was giving into the tempations of the dark side, and Qui-Gon tried to stop him. I like Qui-Gon. I was so sad when Maul killed him. I know a lot of you people hate the Jedi Master, but I think he was one of the best TPM charecters.

    Dooku's a liar!
    Qui-Gon Jinn would never join that evil Sith!

    You've made a 10-page discussion about a thing that Lucas has confirmed? That is Qui-Gon Jinn, Liam Neeson. Although he may sound different, it's him.
