    bibfortuitous: Is this the intro video you're looking for?
    http://s12.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=2BZ7DZ2RISDBS39RWKCIGBXUBO

    As I said I've got some other videos from the live screening before ROTS, but I have problems putting them online, as they have quite a large file size (around 40MB each), and I don't know how to reduce that for videos.
    Would be nice if someone could help me with that! :)

    God bless you, Anne! I've been looking for that video file too! [:D]

    Ummm...as for your other files...What compression are you using?

    You might want to try compressing the video with Sorensen Video 3, and the audio with Qdesign Music2 - You might get some good file sizes with that.

    Jangofett9 - Sidious shouts 'omnipotent power!' just after Mace gets the chop! Thanks to a great Russian boot that is doing the rounds, I now have time to study it more.....and no - I havent paid for it to fund any underground gangster types - like the News of the World said - just one of the 6000 people a day downloading it (well not me - I just got a copy!).

    Thanks Mr Lucas.

    "According to the script Palps says "Power! Unlimited power!"

    Yeah, I'm pretty certain that's what he says in the final film, too. Although, of course, with Ben Burtt going haywire, it can be a little hard to make out! :p

    Super-sweet scene, though! :D

    OK peeps - some other q's I have so here's tapping your SW knowledge.....I dont care how 'uninitiated' they seem or sound - I cant have the whole SW galaxy in my head!!!!! (but it would be nice)

    1. what are the names of the planets that are shown in the film, where all the jedi's get blown away after 66?

    2. where does anakin get the scar on his face from?

    3. could Sidious have 'created' Anakin and been the one who slew his sith master who had the knowledge?

    4. oh yeah - last one - and why the hell did Hayden C
    replace the original Anakin in the end scene of ROTJ DVD box set...

    Many questions I have....much to learn....

    cheers ;-)

    Not sure...I'm sure the list is out there, though. Kashyyyk is one of them (obviously because that's where they try to take out Yoda), Coruscant (where the Jedi Temple is), as for the others I'm not sure.

    2. where does anakin get the scar on his face from?

    During the Clone Wars - There is a three year gap between AOTC and ROTS, and the war has been tough. Anakin get's a scar, and Obi Wan goes grey! :p

    3. could Sidious have 'created' Anakin and been the one who slew his sith master who had the knowledge?

    It's possible -- The thought going round at the moment is that Darth Plaguies may have created Anakin before Sidious killed him...of course, that's all open to interpretaion...

    4. oh yeah - last one - and why the hell did Hayden C
    replace the original Anakin in the end scene of ROTJ DVD box set...

    Lucas thought it would have been in keeping with the PT, since that's when Anakin "died".

    1.Aayla Secura (she of the bluebies) dies on Felucia.

    Plo Koon's fighter is blasted above Cato Neimoidia, I believe.

    There's Mygeeto (think that's where Ki-Adi-mundi dies)

    I think I'm forgetting one more.

    2. Asajj Ventress gives Anakin his scar in one of the Clone Wars comics.



    EDIT: Stass Allie (on the speederbike) dies on Saleucami.

    Rick McCallum asnwered my question to him on a hyperspace chat. I asked

    Rick, can you comment on your "star wars celebration day" experience at "the empire" Cinema with the 1333 fans watching the saga back to back.

    I was there. your appearance was electric!


    he replied

    That was the highlight for me for the last 3 weeks of traveling around with the film. To see a group of people who had been in a theater for over 12 hours -- I was just gobsmacked. The reaction was just so great, which is why I wanted to bring George and Hayden and Ian and back at the end of the film to just say thank you to everybody for being there so long. I thought I was brain-damaged, but my god! That was ******g awesome!

    NICE! I'm really glad he did bring them back, the atmosphere at that showing was electric, you couldn't ask for a better crowd!

    I'm hoping that the opening showing of Batman Begins at Manchester's IMAX will attract a similar group of excited fans, but I doubt it :(

    wow,

    I'm finally able to digest this experience since I've
    been on travel since May 14th. Thanks to Fizzbin for the FFUK badges, ChrisLyne and Ghostface for the info on the tickets as well as the many many other contributors. Also, I am especially thankful for the info provided by Darth_scotty who had the tip to get on the phone early and wait:) Thanks!!!

    The marathon was amazing, seeing all 6 and caping it off with GL, et al, and ROTS. I'm in the midpt of my Star Wars world tour. My mates and I went to London for the Marathon and on the next day to LA, where we saw rots in digital 13 times at the Westwood Village and Arclight Cinemas. Then I had a meeting in Canada so I saw it there and finally in New Mexico, so I'm up to 16 times. I was just telling my friend I think I've reached the ROTS high, analogous to runner's high, where you just need it more - so 16 times is the magic number for me. We experienced a similar 'jar jar high' for TPM at 13 times where you just marvel at the cg craftsmanship in creating jarjar. Next is Tokyo on July 9 and, hopefully nyc. So far, the best viewing was the Marathon. pics coming soon.

    I'm really interested in this. I've been reading the starwars.com thread
    http://forums.starwars.com/thread.jspa?threadID=220545&start=135
    but I'm only on page 10 of 21, so I would rather post here where I know people are hard core sw fans and intelligent as well :).

    I think from the literature and from Ian's performance, Plagueis did exist and was Sidious' master. I think it can be argued that either Sidious or Plagueis manipulated the midichlorian to create Anakin.

    I also think you can make an argument that Sidious caused Anakin's dreams about padme (he was able to cloud everything for yoda in AOTC, afterall). In this case, nothing was wrong with padme. Anakin's dreams caused him to become obsessed with saving her, which eventually interested him in learning the dark side, which broke padme's heart and led to her death, i.e. a quintessential self-fullfilling prophecy. This is radical but no more so than Sidious creating Anakin. Curious what people think.. mg

    Wow! Wish I had the money to see it like you did mastergreedo! I'm glad your having fun :D

    I prefer the second theory as it explains how Palpatine knew Anakin wanted to save Padme's life, plus it seems far more under-handed and Sith like!

    Just for your info,
    I am sure everyone is reading theforce.net and starwars.com, but for those who haven't this is my review.

    Theforce.net easteregg thread:

    More of a techinician's view. Very meticulous and detail oriented. They seem to go overboard on noticing things and arguing about what is or is not an easteregg. They also consider everything a 'nod' to some other movie. For example, they say that Anakin on the stretcher is a 'nod' to han solo moved in carbonite around Bespin. IMHO, it's just the technology of star wars. There some actual nods like the yoda ship - E.T. ship comparison. Also, they claim to see Vader's face in the lava ( a la face on mars:)!!).

    Starwars.com rots threads:
    These are fun, but there are loads. The only irritation is that they get on your case if you deviate from the official thread topic, yet don't allow you to create a new thread. Apparently only moderators can . That said, almost any question you have about the story or philosophy is discussed somewhere.

    Due to a few people asking for this I have upped my 3 video files again I took from the celebration day inside cinema.

    I have put them up on sendit.com and they only allow you to keep the files online for 15 downloads so if someone with webspace could host them it would be greatly appreciated :)

    I spent about 5 hours converting the files and editing them so would be nice if they could be shared with other people.

    cheers
