    I just finished showing a friend of mine the star wars saga from 1-6. This person never saw the OT and i started her with the new going to the old.

    Anyways when we got done i told her how much of an impact it was to see Yoda fight for the first time in AOTC. Seeing as how in ESB and ROTJ Yoda didn't do anything. We knew he had great power (xwing) but we never saw him fight. And i was telling her how the crowds went crazy the first night when i we saw Yoda fight.

    Anyways. Around the time of when AOTC came out i remember there being a clip on the internet. THis clip was of someone with his video camera attending some event. Comic Con? Star Wars convention? Not sure. But in the clip it show alot of ppl watching a theater type screen. And on the screen it had a trailer for a movie.

    The trailer starts out looking like the Spiderman trailer (spiderman came out the same year as AOTC) So it has this spiderman background and it says a few things which i can't remember. SOmething maybe like "this summer there will be one hero" or something like that.

    but point being then it shows Yoda with a lightsaber. And i remember the ppl in this clip went WILD! YELLING!

    I wish i had saved this clip. But does anyone first of all know what clip i'm talking about, and does anyone have this clip?

    I dont want that TRAILER i want that clip where it shows the crowd responding to that clip. I just want to show my friend how excited ppl were to see Yoda fight with a lightsaber. It was a great clip and i'd love to show her that. So if anyone has it please let me know. Thank you.

    I can't swear to it, but it reminds me of something I saw on one of the web-docs or something on disc 2 of AOTC.[face_peace]

    Are you saying JUST the trailer, or the accual clip where it shows the fans responding to seeing the clip. I dont want the trailer, I want to see the clip of ppl going crazy when they saw that clip.

    The actual trailer on the AOTC special features disc. I think it's called "Action Hero" or something like that.

    I remember there was a shortlived trailer for the AOTC DVD. I began "Who da man?...Yo-Da Man." Then it showed Yoda with his saber, then some other clips. I remember thinking it was cool, but now it seems kind of childish.

    Yo-Da man, was Yo-da stupid. Just the words, not the clips of him fighting or of Yoda fighting with the lightsabre in general, which I believe was really cool. But that ad was silly, although i do remember my mom getting a kick out of it.

    Does anyone even know what clip i'm talking about though? It might of been at Comic-Con (really dont know where) But it was someone with his video camera amongst a big cround in the 100's. They're is this somewhat theater size screen infront of the crowd, and a trailer pops up. At first it looks like its a ad for spiderman, but then it shows Yoda.

    When it shows Yoda the crowd goes WILD! Its such a cool clip. Does anyone have this clip of the crowd going wild at seeing Yoda for the first time with a saber?

    Probably was at a comic con. Sounds like the kind of thing that would play there.

    SW just doesn't need to rip off pop-culture. SW defines pop-culture. That's why those trailers bugged me.

    The clip is not on the DVD. The commercial is, but not the clip with the audience reaction. It was taped at Celebration 2, which was held during Spider-Man's opening weekend. I do not have the clip, but maybe that extra info will help you on your quest.

    That's kind of what bugged me about AOTC, they tried way to hard to compete with spiderman, and in the end, got blown out of the water anyway..

    *Spiderman:Box Office
    *AOTC:Box Office

    There's no reason why that should ever have happened. Star Wars should never have been out preformed by a guy in a rubber spider suite
