What I'd like to see, which I think would work perfectly, and if given the chance, I'd leave on a post-it note on GL's rough draft.... 1. Yoda's powerful, but he isn't the chosen one....Anakin is unstoppably powerful. He is the freakin' walking talking Ark of the Covenent. This is a problem for everyone...the Council, Obi-Wan, Anakin, and last but not least, Palpatine. This is why Yoda & Obi-Wan hide, this is why the Jedi Order is wiped out, this is why Palpatine needs a tighter leash around his attack dog...more on that in a sec. 2. Anakin knows Padme's pregnant, and they both go on and on about how great it will be to finally have a family (maybe they've been trying for a couple years already). Most of the cut Padme/Family scenes in Ep2 were about Padme's desire to start a family if I remember correctly, so that's already built in...Anakin would look forward to being the father he never had. He expresses his joy to Obi-Wan in that he'd like his child to become a Jedi. "Your father wanted you to have this...." 3. However it happens, Dooku & Anakin will duel again (maybe even in the presence of Sidious). Anakin wipes the floor with the Dookster, killing him and maintaining the rule of two. I don't think his journey to the darkside will be complete at this point, there's still too much of the good Anakin fighting the internal struggle, but he's unofficially the new Sith at this point. Palps needs something to help push him completely over the edge (pun intended). Obi-Wan is made the patzy, and yet another assasination attempt is arranged on Padme. 4. Sometime before Obi-Wan Vs Anakin, the Clone Wars will be over and Palpatine will forget to give back control of the Senate. A collective sentorial "I've got a bad feeling about this." is heard. 5. The belief that his unborn child is dead is the ultimate trigger sending Anakin to the darkside. Obi-Wan is confronting Anakin in an effort to save him from the darkside, only to get blindsided by the acusation that he had something to do with Anakin's family's death (Padme & child). They fight. This is all a dog a pony show construed by Palpatine. Obi-Wan gives Anakin a run for his money, but ultimately it will take some help (unbeknownst to him) from Palpatine. What's left of Anakin's broken body is coaxed into believing Obi-Wan defeated him ("I was but the learner..."), however Palps needs to have Vader under his thumb, and directing Anakin's rage towards Obi-Wan, in anyway he can, is probably the best way to do so. 6. It's unlikely we'll see a montage of the Jedi Purge, as it's been going on already via the Clone Wars. Mace will die by the hand of Darth Vader or a vengeful Boba Fett. How can a kid kill a Jedi, dunno, but I think with Sam Jackson & GL on the case, it will turn out cool. If Mace ends up fighting Vader, he'll be dispatched about as quickly as Jango was. Getting killed quickly by Vader isn't punkish. 7. Fanboys everywhere will cheer when some mishap occurs and C-3PO is demolished yet again, once he's repaired, a barely audible comment about having to reformat his memory will be mentioned, and continuity phreaks will sigh with relief. He is made to suffer, you know. Other misc stuff: a. I have a strong feeling that this one might open up in the middle of a battle, in space even. Don't know why, just do. There's only going to be the possibility of showing one Clone War battle, there's just too much needing to be done, but I think they could "catch everyone up" durning some fighting/strategizing scenes...I'm sure ILM will also want to take a crack at topping the Battle of Geonosis anyway. b. Jar Jar's not going to die. Naboo will not degenerate into Dagobaugh. Having the two triologies connected doesn't mean everything and every storyline has to be tied up. It's a big universe, and the storyline focus just shifts. c. We'll probably see the Palpy statue (from ROTJ SE) raised...probably on the remains of the Jedi Temple.
