It says right in the article that a "shiatstorm" was generated by the news of a Jedi with a purple light-saber. So everyone is acknowledging this isn't new news.

Oh and since the movies are only 13 years old.

I said to George, 'You think maybe I can get a purple light saber?'
And he's like, 'Light sabers are green or light sabers are red.'
'Yeah, but I want a purple one.' I'm like the second baddest Jedi in the universe next to Yoda.
He said 'Well let me think about it.'

I like to think the Jedi spirit of Mace Windu was partying with Lando drinkin' Colt 45s up on Cloud City when a scraggly honky Lando used to shoot dice with named Han suddenly got a great idea to come pay a visit. The law showed up and then everything went to hell. Mace ghosted and just peeped while his homeboy lost his crib, and his plans to get that cute white girl.  Mace could have been all "Why you bringing this crap on my homeboy? I'm bliggity-blacka then ever!" - but no. Lando never forgot that shiat, Mace chickened out even when he had no skin in the game, and could have haunted the hell out of the cracka that got him killed.

/now THATS racist.

I knew he had asked to have his own color, but I didn't know it was because he wanted to stand out amongst all those lightsabers. I just thought he really REALLY liked purple. The former reason actually makes a lot of sense. Plinkett was right: too many damn lightsabers in the prequels!

Yellow wasn't done until after purple. Sam Jack broke the lightsaber color barrier. It used to be only blue or green for good and red for bad but after Purple was added they threw in yellow for good and orange for bad. Probably because they realized it would help merch sales to offer more color variants
 
2013-07-01 01:22:17 PM
I would have gone with a colorless, transparent one. Because as with people, we shouldn't judge lightsabers based on their color.

Your move Samuel!

Although it is old news, it still bugs me.  Not because I'm married to the idea that lightsabers HAD to be one of three colors, but because how easy it was for Lucas to not stick to his guns.

He's the creator and he says they come in three colors.  But then some actor says "Well, I want purple" and he says "Ok then!"
Why not say "Yeah, that would be neat.  But they come in 3 colors.  And if this is a deal breaker for you, I'm pretty sure people will still come see a Star Wars movie NOT starring Sam Jackson"
 
2013-07-01 01:30:19 PM
Was it really that hard to pick out the only black Jedi in any scene?

He probably got detained three times on the trip from Coruscant because he "matched a description".

Maybe he agreed to it because he liked that it showed how much more diverse the Jedi were back then.

Or it could just be that it wasn't a hard and fast rule, and as the creator, he could change it without people questioning it all that much.

According to Wikipedia the green one was added in movie 3 solely because it showed up better against blue skies than the original blue. And an original Kenner toy of Luke was the first appearance of yellow.

Sounds like it wasn't too strict a rule ever. I mean, licensed games had other colors way back.

And he's such an obstinate prick about everything else. He was surrounded by yes men through everything else about the prequels, after a decade Spielberg and Ford gave in to his alien idea for Indy 4. I guess the point is don't fark with Samuel L Jackson. Unless you're a shark.

I would say the biatching  has to do with the lazy reasoning behind giving in to the purple crystal.

For instance, in Knights of the Old Republic, the purple saber is usually for someone that uses the Juyo style which was created to specifically channel inner darkness into outward strength, thus anger/fear/hatred (red) crystal mentality housed in soldier class crystal (blue). Windu revised and adapted his style and personality with Juyo to create Vaapad style.

That was a minute long explanation that Windu could have given to any number of Padawans or even during his fight with Palpatine as Palpatine trained Darth Maul whom uses Juyo so he would have recognized the similarity.

Green is for Guardians (more force oriented) and yellow for Sentinals. But Lucas didn't go over styles or approaches, no reasoning why Anakin had blue, but Kit Fisto had yellow, why Windu had purple, and Yoda had green.

Lucas gives us, "Well, he asked for purple". And then the merch followed. So much of Lucas' work was already done for him, and he still turned in three less than mediocre scripts and performances.

/my two cents

Same reason why John Wayne was considered a rugged individualist and cowboy because he played rugged individualist cowboys. They're both actors who are known for their typecasting in movies. But they're still just actors.
