Until the release of ROTS on 5/19/05, I would like to discuss TPM chapter by chapter on the DVD. There are 47 chapters to discuss over the next eight months, excluding Chapter 1: Opening Logos, Chapter 2: The Phantom Menace and Chapter 50: End Credits. Each discussion will last 5 days. At the end of 5 days, the following chapter will be posted. Chapter 47: New Knight, New Apprentice DISCUSSION: April 6, 2005 - April 10, 2005 DVD TIME INDEX: 126:18 - 127:14 Synopsis: Inside the Naboo Palace, Yoda tells Obi-Wan that the Council has granted him status of Jedi Knight. He disagrees with Obi-Wan's decision to take Anakin as his padawan learner. Obi-Wan says that Qui-Gon believed in him. Yoda responds saying that Anakin is strong in the Force, but fears grave danger during Anakin's training. Obi-Wan refuses to defy Qui-Gon but will defy the Council if necessary. Yoda is not entirely happy, but accepts Obi-Wan's request. END OF CHAPTER Opinion: Another important moment ending Phantom Menace. Like the previous chapter, it sets up the next movie so have a generalized direction of where these characters are going. Short scene, but sets so much up. Obi-Wan is a Jedi Knight, which clearly puts him in the driver seat like Qui-Gon was in this film. I just love how some interesting traits from Qui-Gon are being passed to Obi-Wan. The relationship between these two was fairly strong and will continue to be. It's such a guilt trip to play giving Obi-Wan this dying wish. Even though it will help bring balance. Yoda is pretty decent in this chapter. One of the last times we'll see him as a puppet. I remember watching The Beginning on the TPM DVD and the dialogue change greatly improved this scene. The original lines seemed like something Obi-Wan would never say. Also the fact that there's a sunset is symbolic saying that this is the beginning of the end. Yoda's sadness is greatly depicted throughout this chapter. He knows something bad is going to happen, but you have to realize in the long run that 36 years into the future, it'll be a happy ending. Good chapter.
