Judging from the photo I think that ObiWan has some explaining to do - no wonder Anakin wanted to kill him

That's his sister.

he looks badass with a beard.  I hope he keeps it for the role.

He says he's "contractually obliglated" to grow it. And as they are filming right now, of course he's got it for the role.

He looks good with a beard.
Less bloated and pasty.
Plus, all Jedi mentors must wear beards, so clearly he is training a new generation of Jedis.

I remember the look Anakin gives Obi-Wan when he steps off the ship making me think that Anakin believing Obi was boinking Padme would've made a better story.

I haven't seen the show but apparently, in Clone Wars, ObiWan is something of a slut. Or at least has a Cassanova vibe to him anytime he's around the ladies.

Star Wars: Episode VII will be released on Dec. 18, and is directed by JJ Abrams. We suspect we might just get the first teaser trailer for it this side of Christmas, too

Well I would think so.

LOL Lukes father is the equivalent of the Milkman.

img.fark.net

Read this. One of the MANY problems Lucas had writing ROTS was determining WHY Anakin turned to the dark side so severely that he hated the jedi enough to murder them all. Suspecting an affair was one of several ideas used, then discarded. They had filmed some scenes where OB1 visits Padme earlier in the movie, and later Anakin suspects they had met but she suspiciously downplays it.

They cut those scenes, but the payoff was supposed to be the scene you mention which is still in the film - when Anakin furiously sees OB1 on the boarding ramp at Mustafar.

That would have been a way better story, or better yet, additional story, than what we got, but then there'd be the later issue of him finding that he IS Luke's father. Plus it would interrupt the whole Fear->Anger->Hate->Suffering thing set up in Ep I.

The ruler of Mandalore (Jango Fett's people), Lady Satine, had a fling with him, implied sexual attractions, to which Obi Wan reciprocates for a G rated cartoon. That is until Darth Maul assassinates her with a Force Choke in front of Obi-Wan.

Obi Wan and Padme did seem to be pretty close and a little flirty in the last prequel to me, at least when I saw it in the theater.

Well, duh. She's tired of the whiny crybaby. OB1 is a manly man, just look at his beard.

You are thinking at a much higher level than Lucas.

Get a copy of that book. You'll realize Lucas had NO idea where the "saga" was going and was making it up as he went along. Anakin wasn't lukes Father until the second draft of the ESB script and Lucas made that decision on the spot.

He hasn't had much in the way of actual movie acting in a while, but he has done an enormous amount of voice acting in the last 20 years. He's made quite a big impact and is a fantastic voice actor.

Wow. he's looking very much the Elder Jedi.  This makes me feel good about this movie.

Still no sign of Leia. She may take a little more work even with Disney's madmen wizards working around the clock.

If they can make Andy Serkis look like Gollum or Caesar, then they can probably make Carrie Fisher 2014 look like Carrie Fisher 1994.

then plunging a lightsaber into her torso while telekinetically held aloft in front of Obi-Wan.

It's been a while since a cartoon broke my heart AND forced me to go "AAAGH!" at the TV.

I realize that.  Still, you have to admit he wasn't on camera and thus didn't need to worry about his appearance much.

/Actually, voice acting would probably be an awesome gig for an actor.  No time in makeup, no need to wear a costume.  Just roll into the studio wearing sweats and work normal hours.

Well after finishing Clone Wars i wonder how its going to tie into the new movie ...

Yoda learned a lot about the force in his training ... (the Yoda episodes at the end of Clone Wars are awesome!)
Darth Maul is still alive and he has the best light saber ...
Ahsoka Tano may still be alive ...

my guess is Darth Maul is the sith lord ... and ... Ashoka and Luke are looking for him and his apprentice inthe new movies.

They can also get away with playing characters of any age, race, creed, species, etc.
