Obi-Wan and Anakin are fighting near a large pool of lava when Anakin gets shoved in. Obi-Wan leaves him for dead. Anakin obviously doesn't die, but the extent of his injuries require him to wear a suit with a mechanical breathing apparatus--thus the black suit that is synonymous with Darth Vader.
Mjr. Whoopass said:I'm looking forward to the space battles that the preview showed. I hope these have a more Ep. 4 + 6 size chunk of the movie than an Ep. 1 sized spot. The action looks great as you watch the preview- but if you slow it down or stop it while watching the internet trailer, the graphics look terrible- the two capships look like a couple cardboard cutouts. Hopefully those graphics will look fine when the film is showed in realtime. There also seems to be some mention of Anakin's skills as a fighter pilot- so hopefully we'll get to see some good WC-ish fighter combat.
Ghost said:I want too know how and when Palpatine's face changed from ''good old man'' to '' Slimey'' from Ghostbusters.
Sarty said:No, the timeline is correct, I know that for a fact. My guess is that Palpatine's face changes because he finally allows everyone to see the REAL him. As powerful as he is in the force, it would be no problem to keep up an illusion such as that. His real strength lies in manipulation, which is obvious by the fact that he caused the Republic to become the Empire, so maybe his body was corrupted by the dark side a long time ago and only now has he revealed himself. Or it could simply be a metaphor. George Lucas wants to present the fact that Palpatine is showing his true side, personified by his face becoming the one we all know, the face of the Emperor.
Sarty said:It is 19 years. Luke and Leia are born before the end of ep 3 and in ep 4, Luke is 19. That leaves 19 years between ep 3 and ep 4. Plus if you look in the front of any NJO book, it shows the timeline. The NJO books are official too.
Lucasfilm LTD Continuity and Production Editors - Star Wars Insider #23 said:'Gospel,' or canon as we refer to it, includes the screenplays, the films, the radio dramas and the novelisations. These works spin out of George Lucas' original stories, the rest are written by other writers. However, between us, we've read everything, and much of it is taken into account in the overall continuity. The entire catalog of published works comprises a vast history -- with many off-shoots, variations and tangents -- like any other well-developed mythology.
Therefore the films and their adaptations are canon, meaning that they take precedence in essentially all matters. Any other form of unfilmed STAR WARS fiction may be official, meaning that it is subordinate to canon and is required to be consistent with other official works. Issues relating to these secondary sources are described below. Works which do not have the blessing of Lucasfilm Ltd (which is not the same entity as LucasArts) are unofficial and cannot be given consideration.
Yet, if we take this definition at face value, the Star Wars Christmas Special (and the Ewok movies) is canon, by virtue of being a film...LeHah said:The only thing that has any say in SW is, quite simply, the movies. Not the Thrawn Trilogy, not NJO, not Dark Forces or some card game. No EU, no Star's End, no West End Games. Sorry folks.
I agree- there's a few funny moments there, thanks AD, I got a kick out of that. If you like that, you'll probably also enjoy "Hardware Wars". I'm not sure if you can download it anywhere, but you can see info at http://www.mwp.com/films/hardware-wars/. It's very short though, so I would think twice about paying $15 for it- some friends and I rented at Blockbuster- we all enjoyed it, but once is probably enough.AD said:Maybe you've seen this already but check out http://www.sequentialpictures.com/moviestarwarsepisode3.html for a laugh or two... It's not riotous but there's a couple of really good moments...
