    Hi, JLK! What is your favorite part of the trailer?

    Mine is all the battle scenes at the end. I will be on the edge of my seat!!!

    I guess all those worries about how digital cameras would work is thrown out the window. Obviously, digital is the way to go. I wonder where all the naysayers are now? ;)

    I am off tomorrow too! Yippee!!! :D

    :) My favorite part? I don't know if I could pick! :p

    I loved the whole scene with Obi-Wan...

    "They're using a bounty hunter named Jango Fett to create a clone army... wait!" And then he whips out his lightsaber... so cool! :p

    And I never knew Obi-Wan didn't like to fly... ;)

    I'm not going to be able to blink at all throughout the whole thing! [face_laugh] It's going to be wicked!

    :D

    Actually, there is something you should know about that part of the trailer. It is not completely as it seems. But I do not want to get into spoilers in this part of the forums. ;)

    Wow, it's a small galaxy after all!

    I've been on the boards about a month and figured I wouldn't even bother looking for a group in Havelock, i'm glad I got bored and looked it up! :D

    SgtFretSurfer, I assume you are a Marine, do we have any others?

    Hmm, I remember seeing that someone was working on a costume, but now I can't find that post, is anyone planning on going to AOTC in costume? I am working on a Jedi costume.

    Any plans for another meeting?

    Hope to meet you all soon.

    Boy, is this a small galaxy...

    I'm glad to see Havelock has its own FanForce chapter. I lived in New Bern for five years, taught at Havelock High School during that time--my students could tell you I was the biggest Star Wars freak that ever lived--I thought about trying to start a FanForce chapter when I was in the area, but I was dumb and didn't think there would be any interest--it's good to know that I was wrong. Good luck to you guys. We're trying to get a chapter started here in Charlotte ourselves.

    my favorite part is seeing count dooku fighting with anakin. i think that scene is going to be the best part of the movie.

    i also really like seeing yoda.

    looks like we have some guests to our forum! welcome!

    Welcome, jarik33 and anakin_girl!

    Glad to see new faces around our neck of the woods.

    Cool SgtFretSurfer, i'm a 6469 Staff Sergeant, i'm at NAMTRA instructing right now. I'm actually putting in an Air Force Officer package, so I can go get the big bucks [face_devil]

    The whole thing has kind of snuck up on me, I am spoiler free, so it is a whole different thing than last time. My first kid was due on the original TPM release date so that was a little different, too.

    I will be in LeJeune for division matches until April 5th, so if you can make the meeting after that i'd much appreciate it.

    Grilled-Sarlacc: :eek: Oh! Well good move not to say anything! :) I'm going to die of anticipation waiting for this film! [face_laugh]

    Does anyone know what day of the week it opens on? ?[face_plain] I wonder if seeing AotC on opening day would get me an excused absense at school... ?[face_plain] [face_laugh] :p

    Hey jarik33 and anakin_girl! :D I live right outside of Raleigh, but everyone here is kind enough to let me hang out in their little area of the boards and chat. :D And yes, I have told them that they're free to kick me out any time they like. ;)

    :D

    JLK, right now my group's Episode II committee, as well as the theater management we're working with, is going with the assumption that AOTC will begin showing at 12:01 a.m. on May 16th.

    I think it is time to start planning a like-up for the Havelock FF for the midnight showing of Ep2. But the local theatre is not exactly the best theatre. Maybe this calls for a road trip!!! :D

    I assume everyone has seen the new trailer, right? I have it downloaded. I think I have watched it like 20 times so far and I even watched it frame by frame and saw all kinds of little details I never noticed before. Like, there is a bantha in the first scene at 0:09 and I think I can make out who each Jedi is at the last shot. ;)

    Oh, I knew it was May 16th, but I wondered what actual day of the week it was... [face_blush] it's a Thursday. :) That probably means I can't see it opening day... although perhaps after school... Maybe I'll just be "sick" that day... [face_laugh] I've just got to find out how to get tickets... oh boy. ;) Should be interesting!

    Thanks, Grilled-Sarlacc! :)

    Oh yes, I've most definately seen it, SgtFretSurfer!!! Over and over and over... ;) Wow, frame by frame? Cool! :cool: :D I can't wait for this movie! :p

    If you watch it frame-by-frame when R2 is flying with his little jets, you can see the battle droids being made on an assembly line in the background!! :)

    And there is an EU character named Aayla Secura who is in one shot. :) I don't know who that as, but she is a twi'lek Jedi.
