So I was thinking... Anybody else feel like the timeline is a little off in star wars? When you watch ep IV, and obi-wan talks about the dark times and the empire and the defeat of the Jedi, you get the feeling that he's talking about events that happened a long time ago and that he's a very old man (like in his 70s or so). You also get the feeling that Darth Vader is kind of old too (ish... Like in his 50s) when he takes off his mask in ep VI, especially if you're watching the original version and you see the ghost played by Sebastian Shaw. But the prequels confirm none of this, with ep I 33 years before ep IV, and Anakin is 9 and obi-wan is... 20? So that makes Obi-wan 53 when he dies and Anakin 47 when he dies. I was thinking... What if the clone wars lasted six years instead of three? One for each season (I'm assuming the show has to end sooner rather than later...) And what if the gap between III and IV was 25 years instead of just 20? This would make Obi-wan 61 in ep IV, which is...ehh...closer at least. It would also make Anakin 55 in VI and Padme would be 29 in III. And Luke and Leia would be 25 in IV. I personally feel this would create a more believable timeline without bashing or altering the prequels (which I love, by the way XD). Anybody else feel this way? Also, it kind of makes me wonder if GLs original intentions were to have the prequel trilogy be a clone wars trilogy, but decided that it was more important to start earlier and show a younger Anakin and show the Jedi as peacekeepers before they were generals.. Thoughts?
