what are your views on what the different planets of the saga represent about the story? why were planets chosen for a particular part of the story? here are some of my views: A New Hope: Tatooine: serves as a desolate, isolated, dangerous place that tells us the droids are in danger and shows us that luke is growing up far from the centre of important events that are happening in the galaxy. Yavin 4: a remote planet for the rebels to be able to hide away on. temple ruins show us there may be some mythical, historiacl reason for the rebels to be there The Empire Strikes Back: Hoth: ice planet shows us the rebels are desperate to hide from the empire if they need to choose such an inhospitible planet. good location for the danger that befalls luke & han at the start of the film Dagobah: high concentration of wildlife-we get the sense the planet is strong in the force. however the darkness conveys a danger so we are not sure what luke is in for the first time we see the planet Bespin: beautiful cloud city represents a heavenly place but the part of the city the duel takes place in has been said by lucas to represent hell. Perfect setting for the first duel between luke and vader as the story gets so much darker during it. Return of the jedi: Endor: simply a setting to show a primitive culture that could overthrow a technological army. Wildlife but much less dark & threatening than dagobah. any thoughts on these before i post any comments on prequel planets???
