    I'm starting to run out of ideas :(. Although I said that before and kept going anyway...



    TPM/AOTC. Introductions to Palpatine/Sidious at the start of each movie.
    Sidious on one side of the war-

    Palpatine on the other-

    Just thought I'd clarify... if anyone is reading the visual storytelling thread, my old account was i_don't_know. So those observations are mine ;)...
    A couple more. (Darth Wolvo spotted yet another TPM/AOTC Council room identical shot...)
    [IMG][IMG]
    It really gives you the idea that Anakin is carrying the torch for Qui-Gon, then later... Maul.

    ROTS/ANH. Ep3 is Anakin's introduction to the dark, inverting Luke's introduction to the light in the next film-

    This one is not the best picture for it, but check out your prequel dvd covers. There is a progression over the prequel covers, the fire (or glow) gets smaller or duller. Then in ANH, Tarkin comments "The Jedi are extinct. Their fire has gone out of the universe." I wonder if it was intended? [face_thinking]

    "Lost arm"-

    Without words, it simply and elegantly illustrates Anakin's feelings of loneliness and isolation. A beautiful visual representation of a character's state of mind.

    Excellent work as always. I may have missed it if you posted it, but below is the image that I was mentioning before that I thought could be compared to the later view in ROTS when we see the eyepieces of Vader's mask as it's being lowered over his face.

    A similarity in OT Yoda and PT Qui-Gon. Indication that Yoda has adapted?

    This isn't mirroring or a visual link, but I like, in the scene where Obi-Wan, Anakin and Padme fall of the Reek the way they land kind of shows their aptitude in battle: Obi-Wan lands straight on his feet, practically in fighting stance, Anakin stumbles a little and loses his balance but quickly regains his posture while Padme lands flat on her stomach. Unfortunately I don't have a pic of the actual moment where they fall but this is immediately after...[IMG]

    There is also an interesting Ep3 inversion, where Anakin is burned alive. The cremations happen with an unbroken bond, the immolation comes when Anakin loses his "family".
