    --- Anything that even suggests some truth behind the Obidala angle. (I detest Obidala because it is so out-of-character for either Kenobi or Amidala. Even if the noble and selfless Kenobi for once formed an attachment, it wouldn't be with a woman who is a politician ("not to be trusted") and his padawan's wife, to boot.

    I don't want to see:

    Anakin killing Padme.

    I'm sorry- but come on, that won't happen. He LOVES her. Padme is the one person who can get through his rage (think about him going nuts in the confession scene wanting to mindlessly blame Obi-Wan on his problems- Padme was able to reason with him and get him to realize the foolishness of his thoughts- w/o her there to check his rage, it will consume him.) The only way he will turn is if he is tricked into believing that Padme and his unborn child are dead. If he saw she was alive- he would turn back. Luke's proof of that in ROTJ... it just took longer for that to happen since Vader was warped by the Dark Side for so long.

    Jar-Jar being completely forgotten.

    Lucas said once we that we would see Jar-Jar as a hero. My guess is he'll die protecting Padme and the twins. He's a numbskull and annoying, but kids love him. He needs to die heroically.

    Too much time spent on Boba Fett

    Boba lovers got their fill of him in AOTC- give it a rest. He's a minor character and part 3 is a tragedy that sets the stage for the OT. This film is about Anakin, Obi-Wan, Palpatine, Padme, and Yoda. It needs to bridge the 2 trilogies together- spending too much time on a minor character would be really pointless.

    That's it :)

    Little kids like The Younglings and Anakins friends I have found to be a definate weak spot in the PT. It was good that they were not in the OT. The characters with dialogue in Episode 3 should be atleast 13.

    I haven't posted in this thread in ages.

    Reprinting my original list and adding to it. (The ones after the first four bullet points are new.)

    Stuff I wouldn't want under ANY circumstances in Episode III:

    ? Anyone being anyone else's father.
    ? Any of our beloved characters actually being a clone (except maybe Palpy).
    ? A major deviation from an SW tradition (e.g. nobody says "bad feeling", or no opening crawl or something)
    ? Rehash of old SW dialogue without a good reason.
    ? Unanswered questions being left unanswered.
    ? Score ripped from previous movies instead of using what JW newly makes.
    ? Jar Jar dying in a way that does not add to the story and only serves to make 'fans' happy.
    ? It being made clear to first-time saga viewers that Anakin = Vader, thus ruining ESB's surprise.
    ? See above, with reference to Luke and Leia being siblings. I wouldn't mind if it was implied that he had a sister, as long as we were given no indication that she was named Leia, being sent to Alderaan, etc.

    Rick McCallum loves you!

    I had never even thought about the Anakin=Vader surprise in ESB, that is a very good point. And remember Lucas intends for it to be watched from I-VI not the order they were produced, he said the reason there is no hyperspace view is that he wants it to be surprised in Episode IV, so surely he must not bring the name Vader and mask to actually equal Anakin, but how the hell would you do that?

    What I would hate?

    Not having Jar Jar die without it being a heroic sacrifice

    not seeing a Yoda vs Anakin fight. It better not go on for to long (especially not as long as the Neo vs Smith fight in Matrix 2) but we need to see Anakin fight off the green muppet just to show how powerful he has become

    Having Mace taken out by anyone other than Anakin

    Have Palpatine as Ani's father

    actually I really wouldn't hate anything that will actually be put in the film, since I reckon GL will be putting all the necersary stuf and as for some of the stuff I want to see, it wouldn't matter if it wasn't there.

    The only stuff that I would actually hate to see, wont be there anyway so I am not worried

    Meaningless cameos from OT main characters (Han,) However, I think seeing Tarkin as a young ambitious man would be great! (if it fits in the story)

    Meaningless cameos from EU main characters (Mara, Thrawn)

    This whole "Mace is the traitor" conspiracy theory

    Palpatine saying "I am your father" to Anakin

    Naboo = Dagobah

    and Britney Spears, while we're at it, why wouldn't you want to see her? What do you think Palpatine used to turn Anakin to the dark side? [face_love]

    Well, we've had the boy band (naff), Samuel L "This party's over" Jackson (good-ish), and there was the "I'm famous, but my career's going down the swanny so please gizza job" cameo of Michael Jackson in MIB II.


    No more goofy characters just so that famous people (especially has-beens) can lig their way in front of the camera. Even if they can be made to "fit" the story.


    John Cleese as first Jedi to confront Sidious.

    So YOU'RE Darth Sidious? Oh, isn't that just bloody typical! You utter... Sodding... Politician! I should've known! Liars! Bloody Liars! All of you! Bastards! I had five grand on you being a clone!...
    Lightning? Oooh! You sneaky little midget! Lightsaber too good for you, eh?

    Two can play at that game! (throws lightsaber to one side and picks up a tree branch)
    I'll have you, You

    You sneaky little bastard!
    OW! Didn't hurt! Ha ha!
    OW! Right. I warned you!

    *falls out of chair laughing at the John Cleese cameo* Lol!!!!!!!!
    That would be very un-Star Wars-ish. . .

    I agree about Anakin killing Padmé, it's JUST NOT RIGHT! He's risking his beloved career of being a Jedi for her! I think that Palpatine will tell Anakin that Dooku killed Padmé, Anakin will be outraged, give into his hate and kill Dooku.

    Palpatine being Anakin's father? That doesn't make sense. . . It's already been clarified that Anakin was conceived by the Force, Shmi wouldn't have lied. . . Palpatine is from Naboo, anyway. . .

    I don't care about Jar Jar, I'm cool with him. But he will most definitely be seen in EpIII, since he was the one who proposed handing emergency powers to Palpatine. . . But he can't help it, he just wanted to be accepted, heh. . .

    Kid Han? Eh, I think I've had enough of him, heh. But I wouldn't mind terribly. . .

    1: NO VADER. (remember this is six films not one so at the end of EIII you think Anakin is dead...only to be revealed in the OT.)

    2: NO TARKIN. (this would serve no purpose to have a young Tarkin in EIII.)

    3: NO JAR JAR (unfortunatley he has to be in there for continuity.)

    That's all I can think of for now sorry!

    1. Too much time spent on Jar Jar.
    2. Talk about midichlorians.
    3. The absence of a cool Jedi action scene, such as cough*Droid Ship*cough.

    ...and more to come, hopefully. :)

    I think I'll puke if there is one more nine year old child in the prequels.. Boba Fett as a kid was too much, but if there is another one of those.... children I'll denounce any association with Star Wars and do something in protest (maybe not buy the DVD? Hrm... )

    Also, I'd hate to see Jar-Jar die for no reason, or only to be seen dead. That'd be.. Evil. And I'd be a bit disappointed if we didn't see the Empire as the Empire by the end of the movie.. I mean, we still need transition.

    I'd also love to see why such great style of the Prequels regressed into bell bottoms and overtight clothes! :D

    Haveing the title be "There's Soemthing about Pamde" .some have noticed that all thses people seem to like Pamde'....

    Palpatine: "The thought of losing U..."
    Obi wan: "She WAS glad to see us"
    Anikan - he's obvious
    Yoda: "Seeing u brings warm feelings to my heart."
    Mace seemed very friendly...
    Vallorum: "It is an honour to meet u..."

    I dont want JarJar Binks in the movie, Bad acting in the movie like in ep2, bad storyline. I would want some good old jedi action like lets say yoda vs anakin or yoda vs emperor.

    This is my list:

    -"The Duel" taking place anywhere that isn't surrounded by a molten lava pit of some kind.

    -Jar Jar, or Chewie, or anyone other than Yoda or Obi-Wan delivering the twins.

    -Any played out angles from the OT (such as "I am your Father" or Anakin thinking Padme has feelings for Anakin the way Han thought Leia had feelings for Luke in ROTJ)

    -Referencing above, no Obidala crap. Wouldn't make sense.

    -Finding out anyone is a clone.

    -Learning that Padme later becomes Mon Mothma, or General Ackbar, or Greedo or some other damned foolish revelation.

    -Padme being offed by Anakin, whether directly, or due to Anakin's inaction (i.e., watching Palps kill her and not doing anything about it)

    -Seeing Qui-Gonn appear as a Force spirit (because then he'd have to appear at the end of ROTJ unless there's some reasonable explanation, then it'd be alright, I guess)

    -Having the ways of the Force (identity retention, etc.) explained in scientific means.

    -Obi-Wan beating Anakin on some kind of fluke.

    -Any OT characters (lest we realize what a small galaxy this really is)

    -Naboo or any other planets become planets from the OT (nuclear winter turns it into Hoth, or sloth and laziness turning it into Dagobah).

    -Yoda fighting like a damn maniac again.

    -Mace spouting out cliche action movie one-liners then waving his lightsaber around like a baton. I know it's blue screen and everything, but at least throw in a little grace to your movements liike Ewan does, Sam.

    -Any more of the painfully awkward jump cuts like in AOTC (from dinner to the fireplace scene).

    -Any more bad dialogue.

    -Any dry performances.

    -Too much CG.

    -Darth Maul returning IN ANY FORM!

    -Anakin still being a Padawan.

    And the list goes on and on, but with all that being said, I have total faith in the folks at Lucasfilm and am sure that they will deliver the payoff we all are waiting for.
