Yeah. It's not wise to upset a Wookiee. That's a generalization about Wookiees.
I was talking about Nemoidians = Chinese, Jar-Jar = Rastafarian, Watto = Jewish or Arab caricature, etc. This whole topic was beaten to death after TPM's release. I personally was not that bothered by it, but a heck of a lot of people were.
I don't want soem stupid guy in front of me in a wookie costume, roaring whenever the theme song kicks in, like in TPM. It's just not polite.
-Nstync or Britany Spears or (gasp) CREED
-Lots of Deaths
That's about it... I don't mind lots of stuff!
I'm not quite sure about the deaths. There is a war going on in AOTC, so I'm not quite sure we can avoid the deaths.
Personally, I just don't want to see cows in Star Wars. All the caricature stuff that someone explained, is pure B.S. People see whatever they want to see in Star Wars. I mean, is Jabba the Hut meant to poke at overweight people? That overweight people are villians? I don't think so.
"Watto = Jewish or Arab"
How can you claim that this is a racial stereotype? You can't even tell what race it is stereotyping!
windier than the signature feature!
The good guys winning.
What's wrong with cows in the GFFA? I like cows- they taste good!
I'm not sure what the GFFA is, but seeing a cow or a chicken in Star Wars would just seem...odd.
"dude why would you EVER not want to see Britt!!"
- you had to ask???? <ahem> because shes annoying, self centered, dumb, lazy, giggly, a tease, a bad actor, a bad singer, a bad liar (boobs - need I say more) etc etc
>> aren't owen lars and obi wan kenobi related in the expanded universe? i thought i read that somewhere. <<
During his talk to Luke on Dagobah in the ROTJ novelization, Ben says, in regards to splitting the twins up, that he gave care to Leia to Bail on alderaan and Luke to "my brother Owen" on tatooine.
And while originally Lucas intended this to be so, he apparently changed his mind about this when he got around to finally writing the prequels, so Ben and Owen are not biological brothers.
However, I'm sure eventually we'll get some story somewhere that sets up some kind of situation where Ben will consider Owen like a brother, so that way those 3 words in the ROTJ novel won't stand out as a contradiction and simply fall under Ben's "a certain point of view" habit.
Anyways, on subject...
-I don't want to see Naboo become Dagobah or any other planet become another-the galaxy is already small enough as it is.
-Only 4 lightsaber colors. Mace's purple one has opened up a door, they should use it should the circumstances allow it. At the very least, gold/yellow/orange should be a reasonable blade color.
-A wait of 2 & 1/2 years for the DVD
I don't want to see any gungans or ewoks
I don't want Palpatine to be a clone of Darth Sidious
And I DON'T WANT to see Boba Fett as a kid & without his helmet
As you can see, AOTC will disappoint me in at least two points.
OTOH, I would love to see a brand new YT-1300 somewhere in the movie
"This party's over."
1. Boss Nass- I love Jar Jar next to this guy
2. scientific explanations- just say no
3. Any Cameos that I can recognize
4. Lightsabre-waving in the theater during the movie.
Thats all I can think of now.
The only thing that would have the potential to really bother me about AotC would be if we discovered even more new coincidental relations between characters from the OT and the PT along the lines of 3PO being Anakin's droid, etc. The galaxy is supposed to be enormous, so it bothers me that everyone keeps turning out to be related. I hope there are no cameos of popular OT characters in either AotC or E3.
Other than that, whatever Lucas does is fine with me.
I forgot to mention that I don't want to see Darth Maul again. Yes he is a cool character but if he were to come back it would ruin the battle with Obi and Qui in TPM.
1. Han Solo and Chewbacca.
2. Anyone = Anakin's father
3. Expanded Universe.
4. Qui-Gon, Yoda, Mace, or any of the other Jedi (aside from Anakin) turning out to be a traitor.
Hmmm, I'm guessing that you guys didn't like that Blue Twilek Chick?
I do not want cameo appearances by Roger Ebert, Rush Limbaugh or Eminem.
Of course, if Jabba the Hutt is in there,
he could be mistaken for Roger or Rush.
If Jar Jar is in there,
he could be mistaken for Eminem.
Can you imagine what SW would be like without "racial stereotyping"? We'd have neutral sounding people moving exactly the same so that no one would be offended.
Personally, I think that if SW has been racist, they should keep it up. It sure makes things more interesting to listen to and watch.
Diverse would be the term that I would use.
yes, there is a draft in here!
