/Fingers crossed that Disney will eventually restore the original theatrical releases 80-year old dude who's performance was still kept intact (Vader's unmasking) in the Special Edition.

Shaw's replacement in the final shots of Jedi doesn't bother me in the slightest.

It does me. Obi Wan and Yoda are stuck as old men for all eternity as Force Ghosts. It seems incredibly unfair that someone who spent most of their life being an evil dick who supported genocide gets to be young and handsome again. That whole "everything is forgiven so long as you say you're sorry and feel really bad about it" thing drives me up the wall. Some sins should be beyond forgiveness, such as aiding in the murder of billions of innocents.


Then by your argument Anakin should never had been a Force ghost at all.

In any case, Anakin would be in his early 40s, not the nearly 80 Shaw.

While debating the afterlife of a religion that has been crafted for a mass-media story would be quite interesting, let's say instead that Lucas screwed up the timeline a bit, and being set on fire might add years to your face. Just as living in a desert would make a 50 year old guy look 80.

Ed Grubermann: AdolfOliverPanties: MadSkillz: I don't give a crap about the EU, but these movies that are being shat out are only about the money.

As opposed to episodes 1-3.

You mean Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi? I don't know of any other Star Wars movies made.


I just call them the Movies That Shall Not Be Named.

The only way that I could see this working is if Darth Vader got cloned or if the son of Leia and Han Solo took the part of Darth Vader when he went to the dark side. Leia and Han Solo spend an episode fighting for their son's soul. Darth Vader Jr still chooses evil and the ultimate betrayal- he kills his parents. In the end it is his Uncle Luke who saves him along with Darth's Jr's younger brother and sister.

It could work right? Or Leia and Han SOlo's son becomes so obsessed with Vader he clones him and uses him to take over and renew the empire. The family fights brother against brother . . .

FishyFred: It will be one thing if they shoehorn him in through a flashback. I'll live.

But he's farking dead. You can't bring him back. Unless I'm very much mistaken, the EU is not full of crap about Vader being resurrected (unlike Palpatine, who makes coming back from the dead a weird habit).

/spoiler alert
//oops, too late


One word:

Reboot

I'm surprised they're going to use Mark Hamill. Then again, maybe it'll look kinda badass like Ian McDiarmid cutting through 3 Jedis like butter.



When 61 years you reach, look this good you will not, hmm?

Millennium: AverageAmericanGuy: Vader didn't really die. If he had died, he would have completely disappeared, like Obi Won did in A New Hope and Yoda did in Revenge of the Jedi. At the end of ROTJ, we see Luke carrying Vader's 'corpse' to the pyre and floating it out into the sea. If he were really dead, there would have been no body.

IIRC, Lucas has stated that Vader's body -or what was left of it- did indeed disappear. Luke cremated the life-support armor and cybernetics, but the body was gone.

Also IIRC, there's precedent for that. Didn't Obi-Wan's clothing remain when his body vanished? Why not Vader's, then, even if it held a more rigid shape?

Ok, plus

-Anakin didn't get a choice in his 'chosen one' status
-The last time Anakin was 'good', that's what he looked like
-what he personally chose was evil, but it all somehow ended up balanced because what he finally chose killed the most bestest sith evar, and somehow, magically-poof! The balance is restored.
How? Not sure. Maybe the prophecy was a shiatty one.
Maybe that Jedi ate too many of those funky plants from Felucia.

BronyMedic: simplicimus: Um, not much of a Star Wars geek, but wasn't he back on the good guy team after he died?

Send in the clones, my friend. The Expanded Universe cloned Palpatine as a baddie numerous times after Vader threw him into a fusion reactor.

But. Really. Mark Frickin' Hamill?

That man is my hero. Not for Star Wars, but for playing Christopher Blair in Wing Commander.

SO MUCH PHUQIN' THIS RIGHT THE PHUQ HERE, BY GAWD!!
 

I bought WC4 just so I could watch the story. I set the thing on easy, and started playing/watching. I didn't get to the end of it before one of my kids "borrowed" the discs, and there that went.

thecpt: therecksays: In the original trilogy and in Old Republic it is not uncommon to have those strong in the Force to have ghosts bopping around.

While I fully want them to just do an Old Republic Trilogy, why can't they just make a new farking villain? Darth Maul should have been in all 3 prequels IMO. He was that strong and interesting of a character.


As presented in the movie? He really wasn't. He wasn't a character at all. He just looked cool.

There's clearly nothing wrong with looking cool, and two more movies would've given him time to develop some form of personality. And having a villain that Anakin had some kind of emotional connection to would've made the confrontations Anakin had in 2 and 3 actually work much better. But just going by what we get in Phantom Menace, Darth Maul's "character" is a wonder of costume design, makeup design, and fight choreography.
