I like the idea of a shaggier cut (no mullet :D ) and I hope that goofy look on his face is just bad timing. :crazed:

The gloved hand rules, it beats that goofy looking robot hand.

Hmmmmmmm, if he's going to be running around in Vader-esque costumes, they're going to have to chop off his legs at the end of the movie or somethin because he's gonna look way to small. :crazed:

Hayden rocks. :)

Well, remember that Lucas has said that his legs were fully robotic. So if he falls into a melting pit or somthing, he could easily loose everything below the torso and still survive. I guess we'll know when the movie finally comes out. After this image, I wish the wait wasn't so long. :)

Some good news (if true) in there, BD. Thanks for the heads up!

The Wookie thing tells me that Lucas is trying to stuff in those older concepts that were altered for one reason or another. We'll see how well he can shoe-horn these types of elements in.

Dagobah?! What the hay is that all about? Pray that this is nothing more than rumor.

The "loose ends" comment piqued my interest. I think it's rubbish and impossible to tie up the problems, but we'll see.

The fees comment was interesting. I was under the impression that Lucas was bankrolling this thing himself? So why allocate a fee beyond the gravytrain of net return? Seems strange to me.

Any news on a co-screenwriter for Episode III? I mean, somebody who actually has permission to do something instead of saying, "Yeah, George, that's a great idea!"? :rolleyes:

It sounds like this is a costume test, from about a week or so ago, that they were watching. Because the image fits part of one of the web diary entries. :)

George musses with Hayden's hair a bit. The tidy look is apparently too tidy, so they break up the hair slightly. Key Hairdresser Annette Miles is on hand to carefully track all of their suggestions. A scar added by makeup isn't reading well enough on the monitors, so Nikki Gooley and her crew thicken it up to make this particular trophy of the Clone Wars more visible.

Jedi Clint

The picture was from an actual scene being filmed according to the new entry in Hyperspace. Anakin and Obi Wan walking along in front of the "ELEVATOR LOBBY" and "HALLWAY" set talking to one another.

This was the only stage used for shooting (on this the first day), and that means the set we see behind Anakin is the one described above as an elevator lobby/hallway.

There was a question raised about the placement of lightsabers during the filming for continuity sakes. I seriously doubt that they would "walk" down a hallway together and have a conversation while dueling, so this is probably a scene where the two are at least on speaking terms. That bit of information blows one of my main theories completely apart...but I'll get to that later. The saber placement issue is probably about where on their person those sabers reside.

R2 had a scene or scenes on this same set.

Anakin had to avoid some obstacles on this set because his cloak gets caught on an "outcropping".


Also today a 10 year old described as a "padawan" did some combat training......not shooting related.

George wrote a new scene in a set that was already on the schedule with Bail Organa that involves a new costume for an existing character.

From the next Insider:

No rematch between Yoda and Dooku though both will have their own fights.

The major focus is the breakdown in friendship between Obi-Wan and Anakin.

The focus of the film further confirms what we learn from the above. They start the film on speaking terms and end it as enemies. I had previously suggested that they wouldn't meet up in E3 until the duel.....I no longer consider this a possibility. I think George is focusing on Anakin's feelings as expressed in AOTC. He feels Obi Wan is too critical of him, and he feels that the learning process that Obi Wan subjects him to is in essence holding him back from his true potential.


Confirmed by Hyperspace diary entries and web cam images:

Padme and Anakin are still keeping their relationship a secret.

C-3PO got his gold plating.

Pendo
07-01-2003, 03:30 AM
I'm curious to find out how Anakin gets his scar. I persumed that he would get it from his duel with Obi, but if he's got it while talking to him the he probably get it before then. I guess I'll have to wait for the movie to find out though :rolleyes:...

Beast
07-01-2003, 04:39 AM
I think the cheek scar is probably which one he gets during the Clone Wars. The large head slash, is most likely from Obi-Wan's Lighstaber during their duel. :)

Naboo isn't Dagobah, they are in a different system. They showed where they are in relation to each other on a planetary map that came with the insider. And Naboo officially still exists, since Lucasfilm allowed it in the Star Wars Galaxies game that takes place after EIV. :)

In general, I personally haven't been enamored with Lucas's attempts to connect and give background information into so many of the OT elements. Some are fine, when properly motivated, but when it is gratuitous, it's annoying. Like Jango for instance. AOTC could easily have been done without concocting a half-hearted connection to please the Boba Fett Fan Club. And the same goes for Tatooine. Not only does it create all sorts of story problems if it is shown at the end of Ep III (with the baby), but it just isn't necessary in the first place. Gratuitous is the only word that really describes it.

So, when talking about Dagobah, (and I don't believe those silly rumors about it being Naboo anyway), it would be insanely stupid for George to "work it in." I mean, why? What purpose would it serve?

Do we really need to see lil' Chewy? Lil' Han? For cryin' out loud, George, give us a break! Get Nickelodeon on the horn if you want to do a rehash of Muppet Babies with your own characters, but leave this nonsense off the big screen already.

His clothing may be darker, but I wouldn't consider it "evil". In fact in the elevator shaft sequence, Anakin's robes still appeared dark brown. A recent set diary also described the sequence obviously prior to that one, which has Obi Wan and Anakin riding in the elevator together. Why would they stand side by side in an elevator if Anakin is "clearly evil"?

The original idea of an Imperial incursion on Kashyyk may be reworked. Wookies against technology. The wookiees were taught to fly starfighters in George's original story and this may be used yet. Chewbacca is a very competent pilot after all so it makes sense that he learnt hi skills somewhere, Why not in a starfighter trained by 'rebel' forces? I'd love to see Chewie and a load of Wookiees fly into battle. All that aggression and some fancy flying. A nod to Paploo and the out of control speeder bike but this time with a careless and reckless Wookiee in control of a machine of death. I'm liking the inclusion of the Wookiee. In the original story Bail organa had a fleet of starfighters he'd been amassing as a precaution against palpatines machinations and schemes. He was helped by Mon Mothma. Organa's palace guard and sympathisers from other planets were the first rebels.
I dunno, I have a feeling that george will be pulling a lot of his old backstory into play and a lot of stuff from early drafts of the saga.

As for the points Jargo has brought up... I think they are really good ones. There is some amazing backstory that George has not yet used. It would make sense that Bail and Mon Mothma are up to something as a scene was shot that involved a group of senators that included the two of them. I think it would be cool if there was a huge space battle involving the republic forces and Bail's starfleet. This would be a great time for Obi-Wan to make way with the children and get them to their respective destinations.

This would be a great time for Obi-Wan to make way with the children and get them to their respective destinations.
Over on rebelscum they posted an article from a European magazine and it was an interview with Mayhew:

"After Peter talked about Episode IIIís script, Robin asked Peter on the role that Chewbacca will play. I liked what Peter said. Peter replied, ďI was told by George Lucas that I would be playing a large part in the story including the delivering of two twin babies and playing a role in a major battle scene that involves many war machines. Sadly, I have not read those sequences of the script yet.Ē After a small bit of Robin comparing the Original trilogy to the Prequel trilogy, she asked Peter how well he liked the parts of the script that he had seen. Peter says, ďAgain, I havenít really seen the complete script. Lucas only gives us copies for that days shooting. But from what Iíve seen, it looks good. Of course, I really donít have any lines (he laughs). Lucas has really changed his writing style from back when he wrote the original trilogy. He is much bolder and willing to push the envelope in both settings and dialogue. In fact, the opening action scene involving many Wookiees takes place on one of the many new planets seen in this movie.""

Which just goes to prove my point about lucas using the plot point of the starfighting Wookiees who in the original script treatment did battle with imperial tanks and then after wining the battle were taught to fly by the Obi-Wan figure. Lucas may have changed things round a bit and have Anakin teach them or something but it's definately sounding like the same scenes. I have a feeling Padme may be captured. Held in a space station prison. Anakin and Obi go after her and are almost captured but manage to rescue the pregnant padme who has been tortured. and at some point the Wookiees attack an almost Imperial prison space station. It will precede the battle of yavin as a counterpoint. A smaller scale battle with many casualties.
Basically if you go and find the treatment for the first movie written in 1973 it will outline the plot for episode three perfectly. You need to adjust your mind for stuff that we already know from the movies and character names will be different in places but basically it's all there writen so long ago and by the sound of it all being used. ;)

Why, praytell, is it necessary for Chewbacca, of all characters, to A) have his history told in the Prequels, and B) be tied in so tight to the primary action? He was a sidekick for cryin' out loud. A "B" character who was there to fulfill his little bit and then disappear into the woodwork, just like Bib Fortuna or General Madine.

Plus, what's this BS about Chewy and Obi Wan being "friendly" with each other in the Cantina? Old Ben was looking for a ship and he started talking to Chewy. So what you're saying is that if Chewy and Obi hadn't had a prior relationship some 40 years prior, Chewy would have ripped the old man's head off? Chewy was being "nice" to the guy because he was a potential customer. That's all. That's it. Geesh. :rolleyes:

I see the exact same thing in his quote about Lucas' writing
style or whatever . . .

Gotta take this with several grains of salt........I certainly hope that Chewbacca does NOT deliver the twins.....although.....it just occurred to me...maybe he actually delivers them...you know...from the womb.....


Anyhow...I have no problems witht he wookies getting into a huge battle.....I have a feeling it would be quite the spectacle.....although, having a jedi train them is a little too "fremen/mua dib" for my liking.

Well, i was just hypothesisng there. I'm not agin the Wookiees getting into battle against many war machines, in fact it would please me to see large hairy 'savages' waging war with ferocity rather than the care bears of ROTJ. The chance to then get some lovely Wookiee figures thrills me beyond thrills. The Gungans failed to satisfy, the Jedi of AOTC were not that impressive to me. But big shaggy monkey/dog/bears with blasters is an altogether more enticing prospect. I can live without the Luke adoption sequence and all the Spielbergesque schmaltz it implies. I just want to see Anakin get mad and go nuts and some serious fighting. I want to see palpatine really twisting the knife into the republic and Organa crapping himself and starting the rebellion on its journey into the darkness of the days of Empire. I want to see the Jedi routed. Civillisations destroyed and Yoda scurry away like a frog on a highway caught in a huge oncoming rig's headlights. :D
Let's have some seriously diabolical dark fun in this movie please Georgie boy.
