1.) Why doesn't Vader recognize the droids (Especially Threepio, whom he created)? It kind of blows your mind when you consider that when Threepio said "Thank the maker!" in Ep. IV, he was thanking Darth Vader! For that matter, why doesn't Obi Wan recognize Artoo?
I would say that first, vader has been around so many droids that he probably doesn't think of c3po; especially since turning to the dark side. A droid is probably meaningless to him. Secondly, R2 & C3po will have their memories erased at the end of Episode 3. They don't know that it was vader who created them. You can read the whole synopsis of what is going to happen at this link--- (warning, there are major spoilers)http://www.supershadow.com/starwars/episode3/revenge_of_the_sith/plot_script.html
2.) What happens to Count Dooku? There can only be two Sith at one time (no more, no less). If we don't get to see him croak (and Anakin take his place) it will be something of a rip-off. Maybe Anakin will have to kill him in a lightsaber battle, like the Emperor was trying to get Luke to do with Darth Vader.
Anikin kills Count Dooku at the begining of episode 3. Dooku is just a tool that the emperor has been using to ultimatly get anikin as his apprentice.
3.) Why does Obi-Wan say that Yoda trained him (not Qui-Gon) in the classic Trilogy? Obviously because Lucas hadn't invented Qui-Gon yet, but what is the "Star Wars" reason? Did Yoda train Obi-Wan before he became Qui-Gon's padawan?
We only saw part of obi-wan's training. Perhaps yoda did some training with him at any given point?
2.) Why does the Emperor's hologram look so deformed? (Empire Strikes Back)
In the new trilogy put out on DVD, the emperor is clear as a bell; he is not deformed any more.
As far as the trailer goes, I thought that it was good. It looked very dark, and from everything that I have read, this is going to be the darkest of all of the Star Wars movies. Also, there is going to be more light saber fighting in III than in the rest of the movies as well.
Here are some things that I thought were interesting about the trailer that I picked up on---
-Anikin's eye's were like Darth Maul's after he turned to the Dark Side
-James Earl Jones pronounces "master" the way hayden christensen does when he is rising on the table
-Darth Sidious's voice sounds scarrier in this one (due to effects); for instance, when he says "Lord Vader.....Rise". Rise sounds really creepy.
I haven't seen the new trilogy on DVD yet, but I have seen pictures and have read about it online. It is supposed to tie some things in with the prequils.
For instance, I think that the emperor's voice is altered a bit, like I stated in my previous post.
At the end of return of the jedi, when it shows the ghosts of anikin, obi wan and yoda, hayden christensen is in there instead of the old guy from before. Obi wan is still alec guiness; however, I don't understand why they have an old decreped obi wan, who has always done the right thing and followed the right path, be old as a ghost, then anikin who has chosen the wrong path come out looking like a young man! shouldn't it be the other way around, or at least have all of their ghosts young??
Anyway let me know what you think. May the force be with you.
