    There was a three book series by Sci-Fi author AC Crispin about Han's early days, leading up to him being in the bar in Mos Eisley in ANH. While it doesn't have their first meeting, it does deal with Chewie's Life Debt to Han.

    Pretty cool stuff, actually.

The description Yoda gives is tantalizing, indicating that Qui-Gon is the first Jedi to figure out how to do it. It'll obviously figure importantly into the story with Kenobi and Luke, so I think it should've gotten much more play.

    Further, I'd have loved to see a scene where Kenobi discusses his failure with Qui-Gon. Obi Wan is going to basically have to live in exile for 20 years with nothing to think about except how his failure in training Anakin probably led to the complete destruction and murder of the Jedi and the rise of a tyrannical dictator to power. I'd love to have seen Qui-Gon's reaction to that.

    You hadn't heard?

    There's going to be a live action series coming out in 2006. First season will be completely written and directed by Lucas, second season+ will be run by someone else (speculation of Kevin Smith has been running wild for six months). It'll fill in the gap between III and IV.

    There's also going to be an on-going animated show on Cartoon network. Haven't heard what time period it'll cover.

    It showed up in attack of the clones. I haven't seen sith yet (I was on the road and my wife made me wait until today, going later). When Anakin destroys the Sand People its Qui Gon's voice that is screaming "Anakin, NO!". Yoda looks up and realizes what has occured (both with anakin and qui-gon's discovery). I figure Yoda begins at that stage with figuring out what qui-gon has accomplished.

    Re: Just saw Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith

    Saw it last night and loved it. I thought overall it was just as good as any of the original three. The one problem I had with all three of the prequels, Sth included, is that I think Lucas really blew the single most important decision in these movies.... the actor to play Aniken. I thought the kid in the first one was dreadful and Haydn Christensen was Keanu Reeves bad. Seriously, I was there with a firend and we actually laughed at a couple of scenes. He was especially awful in the scene where Padme comes to where he is after he kills all the spearatists and thinks Obi-wan turned her against him. Basically, any scene that required any REAL acting, he was horrible, IMO.

    I hate having to look past bad acting in a film, but this movie was so good, I didn't mind so much. It's just infortunate that it could have been so much better with a good actor in that role.

    I'm just amazed at what a great overall story Lucas created from start to finish. Seriously, it's a very deep and complex story that's just fascinating. The whole story of the history of the jedi and the sith; the story of the conception of Anakin, the rise of Palpatine, his recognition of Aniken's potential and how he "mentored" him his entire life preparing him for his transition; how he actually convinced Aniken that the jedi were the traders; how it was actually his unwavering love for Padme that was his ultimate weak spot; then how Luke was born and found his way into the battle, and how ultimately Aniken couldn't kill Luke. It's just a fabulous and rich overall story. One of these days I'm gong to read the books.

    I agree with some of the sentiment that there's a lot of things that could be explored further. There's just so much depth to the world Lucas created that he couldn't reasonably do everything.

    It's going to be a long 30 year wait when they remake the entire Star Wars series.

    As much as I appreciate Lucas for his creations and innovations, he is really awful at dialog. Mace Windu has been an amazing disappointment (so far, again I won't see Sith until later in the day). I don't think Sam Jackson is a bad actor though. I feel much the same about Christiansen. I actually think he did pretty good in Attack of the Clones. He captured teem angst pretty well in my opinion. Teen angst can be uncomfortable to watch. Having been entirely enamored with the Star Wars universe since I was 7 years old, I have recently come to the conclusion that Mark Hamill really stunk (especially in Episode IV). I think the truly great actors have been able to get past the uncomfortable dialog that Lucas generates (McGregor, Guiness, Neeson, et al), but some of the other actors have had trouble, partially due to the significance of their roles in combination with the quality of the scripting for those roles (Hamill and Christiansen particularly).

    I am still an extreme star wars geek though. (not of the type that make their own videos of light saber duals though).

    Thanks for spoiling it for me guys!

    ANIKEN IS DARTH VADER??? :

    May the Swartz be with you!


    My 9 yr old wants to go see it; but he has never seen one episode of Star Wars. I don't know if he'll be able to follow along. We're going as a family to see it next weekend. I may have to at least get the original Star Wars for him to watch to kind of fill him in some.

    Re: Just saw Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith

    I don't know, it might be better for him to see Episodes 1 and 2 first than this one and than the orginal and finish it out in order. But than again he might get confuse when Obe Wan Kenobi doesn't recognize R2D2 and C3PO, but maybe he pretends not to know them.

    One thing that surprised me was how important the Cartoon Network's "Clone Wars" series was to this story. If you haven't seen it, you'll miss out on a lot of plot points in "Revenge of the Sith", especially where General Grievous (hack, wheeze) is concerned.
    Back in the late '70s the Star Wars Marvel Comic bridged the gap between the original and Empire Strikes Back.

    Re: Just saw Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith

    GAC,

    If I were you, I'd rent Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones for him to watch first. As a nine year old he'll probably love the pod race. After he sees Revenge of the Sith, then you should introduce him to the original masterpiece. That's what I would recommend. It'd be much easier for him to follow that way.

    As for the series, I found this:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertain...lm/4484915.stm

    Two Star Wars TV series will follow the latest movie in the hit film franchise, director George Lucas has said.

    Animated show Clone Wars, currently broadcast as three-minute episodes, will become "a 3D animated" series of 30-minute shows, he said.

    It would be followed by a live-action series featuring characters from the six Star Wars movies, he added.

    "We're probably not going to start that for about a year," he told a Star Wars convention in Indianapolis.

    'Step away'

    The latest Star Wars film, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, is released in most countries on 19 May.

    The Clone Wars "micro-series" has had 25 three-minute episodes on Cartoon Network, taking the story up to Revenge of the Sith.

    Mr Lucas told the Celebration III convention the live action TV series would be similar to Raiders of the Lost Ark spin-off The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.

    "Like on The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, we want to write all the stories for the entire first season all at once," he said.

    "I'm going to get it started, and hire the show runners and all of that, then I'll probably step away."

    He said the live action series would feature stories taking place between movie episodes three and four - Revenge of the Sith and the original 1977 Star Wars movie.

    Lucas said he "never considered" extending the Stars Wars story beyond episode six - Return of the Jedi.

    "To be very honest with you, I never ever thought of anything that happened beyond episode six," he said.

    "It's the Darth Vader story. It starts with him being a young boy and it ends with him dying. I never ever really considered ever taking that particular story further."

    Mr Lucas said the live action series would feature some existing Star Wars characters - but would not elaborate.

    "There's a lot of issues that are connected, but you won't necessarily see a lot of the people that are connected," he said.

    Empire favourite

    No broadcast dates for either series have been announced.

    More than 30,000 fans attended the convention. Away from Star Wars, Mr Lucas added a fourth Indiana Jones movie was "definitely in the works".

    Meanwhile, The Empire Strikes Back has been named the favourite Star Wars movie in a poll of more than 40,000 readers of film magazine Empire.

    Han Solo was voted the favourite hero, Chewbacca was top alien and X-wing pilot Wedge Antilles was favourite minor character.



    Now, about Han Solo's back story, there is a trilogy of books that start with a 17 year old Han and take you up to the point where we meet him in episode IV. Check those out, they're pretty good.
