PO Box 10307 San Rafael, CA 94912 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Dear Jon While working on the LucasArts packaging for the new Insider Guide CD-ROM, I got the heads up this morning of a scene originally intended for Episode 2, but since that movie ran for so long, it was cut out from the original draft. Note that this was an original edited scene from the Episode 2 script, not from the upcoming Episode 3 script ? though that?s kinda why I?m sending you this, as great speculation! To cut a long story short, it?s the scene when the audience finds out about the much-debated entities of Palpatine and Sidious ? are they the same or are they two people? In fact, it seems such a heated argument that the producer of the series was desperate to extinguish it by having secret revealed indefinitely. Anyway, the scene in the very early drafts suggested Yoda in fact fighting Palpatine aka Sidious after Palpatine tells him in private of his secrets. Yoda doesn?t win and instead retreats the Jedi Order (I?m assuming for Dagobah), and leaving the tired force-protectors without a master Jedi. I don?t know what to make of Yoda ? cowardly or smart? The reason I knew this is because on the original ?Insider Guide to Attack of the Clones? CD-ROM was meant to tell us this snippet, until it was insisted among our peers that this major detail be deleted from the CD-ROM. Just thought it would of interest to you. Have a good one, Jon.
