    Not particularly [face_plain]


    [face_laugh]
    Seriously, though, why couldn't it have been both? Luke, the new Jedi, Anakin, the classic Jedi. Also, the return of the group the Jedi? Does it only have to be one?

    How many astronaut-looking characters (or elements, like those helmets) are featured in the OT(or OT/PT)? Boshek's one, but are there others? (There's an unknown Lady Astronaut in the TFA credits)

    Could the force abilities exhibited by Rey and Grogu have healed Vader’s wounds? Is this thread the best place for answers to this question?

    Possibly his physical ones. But Vadar's wounds were more then just physical at that point. He had emotional and mental wounds going back decades as a far as I can tell, the Force does not act as some mythical psychiatrist.

    I imagine it would heal his burns but i doubt the'd regrow his missing limbs.

    It would’ve healed his burn, but he’d still be limbless. That begs the question, would it have regenerated his lungs as well?

    In Legends, in Shadows of the Empire - Vader uses the Dark Side to repair the damage to his lungs - but the repair only lasts a very short time.

    What is the metaphysical reason that the Force cannot regrow missing limbs?

    Only Harry Potter can do that. Apparently they can't regrow eyes, though.

    Probably because it's an accelerated/optimized version of "natural" healing. So the Force can repair areas of damaged tissue/organs/bones/etc and make sure the healing process is smooth and painless, but can't regrow missing parts because humans aren't salamanders and don't normally do that.

    And to be precise, in Harry Potter for some reason they can regrow bones but not limbs - so Harry can get his boneless arm regrown or whatever, but Mad-Eye Moody has a wooden leg as well as a wandering magical eye.

    If I remember correctly, while fixing a broken bone with magic would have taken a second, regrowing the arm bone took all night and Harry was in pain. Maybe a combination of biological technology and the Force would work. You could grow a new arm in a lab and then use the Force to connect and heal the tissue and bone and nerves together.

    I was reading the Wookieepedia entry on Biggs, which had the following line:

    "The scene in which Darklighter and Skywalker are reunited on Yavin 4 was reintroduced in the 1997 re-release of the film. Only a small amount of dialogue was kept out for reasons that can only be speculated as having to do with the release of the Prequel Trilogy, since a small portion of the dialogue deals with Luke's father, Anakin Skywalker."

    Of course, there is no source cited for this. Anyone know more, about either what the dialog cut was, or if this is even accurate?

    Blue Leader (changed to Red Leader) claims to have met Anakin in the novel. Presumably that was the bit that was cut.

    Novel version:

    'Aren't you Luke Skywalker? Have you been checked out on the Incom T-65?'
    'Sir,' Biggs put in before his friend could reply, 'Luke's the best bush pilot in the outer-rim territories.'
    The older man patted Luke reassuringly on the back as they studied his waiting ship. 'Something to be proud of. I've got over a thousand hours in an Incom skyhopper myself.'
    He paused a moment before going on. 'I met your father once when I was just a boy, Luke. He was a great pilot. You'll do all right out there. If you've got half your father's skill, you'll do a damn sight better than all right.'
    'Thank you, sir. I'll try.'
    'There's not much difference control-wise between an X-wing T-65,' Blue Leader went on, 'and a skyhopper.' His smile turned ferocious. 'Except the payload's of a somewhat different nature.'
    He left them and hurried toward his own ship. Luke had a hundred questions to ask him, and no time for even one.



    Movie version.


    Red Leader: Are you sure you can handle this ship?
    Biggs: Sir, Luke is the best bush pilot in the outer-rim territories.
    Red Leader: You'll do all right.
    Luke: Thank you, sir. I'll try.

    • A scene between Luke Skywalker and Biggs Darklighter, just before the Battle of Yavin. A pilot has been digitally inserted walking past the camera at one point to mask a deleted line by Red Leader (which in the script indicated that he knew Luke's father and his reputation as a pilot).

    And the longer dialogue version is a deleted scene on the Blu-ray.

    I believe it was also once available on one of those old interactive CD-ROMs, but I could be wrong.
