    These ones are a little more obscure, but interesting nonetheless...


    Front-jump to Maul, Back jump from Vader-

    Red lasers seperate two Jedi and a Sith, Qui-Gon patiently meditates-

    There are a lot of opposites I have noticed between EP1 and Ep3. For example, TPM ends with a celebration, whereas part of ROTS's ending is Padme's funeral-

    Maul works with Gunray-
    [IMG]
    Vader kills Gunray-
    [IMG]





    Palpatine under Valorum and holding less power than Amidala-
    [IMG]
    Palpatine declaring himself Emperor-
    [IMG]





    The force guides Anakin to accidentally destroy the droid-control ship-
    [IMG]
    Luke uses the force to destroy the Deathstar-
    [IMG]





    Anakin and Luke at 19, in the same spot. When they get up they are asked "Where are you going?"
    Anakin: "To find my mother"
    [IMG]
    Luke: "Looks like I'm going nowhere. I'm gonna go finish cleaning up those droids"
    [IMG]





    According to the commentary, this is how Boba learns about the trick Han uses-
    [IMG]
    [IMG]






    TPM/ROTJ parallels...
    The Gungans are captured-
    [IMG]
    The Rebels are captured-
    [IMG]

    WIth Anakin's help (by flying into the control ship and destroying it), the Gungans are freed-
    [IMG]
    With the Ewok's help, the Rebels are freed and the shield-generator is destroyed. The Rebels can then fly into the Deathstar and destroy it-

    Thanx obi-rob-kenobi4. It's a very interesting aspect of the saga to me.


    Returning to Naboo-
    [IMG]
    [IMG]
    Arriving at Yavin-
    [IMG]
    [IMG]





    Kind of an obvious one. The Republic will become the Empire-
    [IMG]
    [IMG]





    This can be added to the previous observation of Anakin and Luke nearing death in fire and ice. Both reach out to Obi-Wan, and this appears to be the same droid-
    [IMG]
    [IMG]





    Anakin and Han's concern after two "brothers farewell" moments is mirrored. Also, this is the last time Anakin and Obi-Wan meet before Anakin becomes a Sith, and the last time Luke and Han meet before Luke is a Jedi-

    Y
    ellow always has been Lucas's favorite color, it seems. Kind of a cross between "piss yellow and puke green" to be more precise.

    The first is from Dr. Strangelove
    The third is from Watchmen
    There are many, many movies with similar sets

    I don't know if this is the right thread for these. Maybe visual influences and homages should be seperate threads from this one?

    This is an apology from Obi-Wan, the last time they have a one-on-one before facing Maul.

    No, Lucas visited the set on several ocasions. Specially towards the end, when he had to push Kurtz aside to be able to finish the film.

    Lucas could visit anytime he wants, it is his movie, he do whatever he wants with the movie [face_laugh]

    Maybe because ROTS marks the end of this "elegant weapon for a more civilized age" until Luke will give it new life 20 years later?

    @oierem, Darth Vader and Stampid
    I was indeed joking. Sorry for any confusion.

    There is an irony in the fact that Anakin's attachments both damn him and save him at the end of each trilogy.
