Im not sure how others feel about this, but I think that it is a mistake.
I know people like to think that this is a series of 1-6, but it isnt.
Episode 3 is the last movie in the series. We need to see certain things.
I dont think that every little comment from the OT needs to be
visualized at the end of E3, but I think there is no need to try to
be all clever about alluding the truth. Because it will feel like BS to us who are watching. And I dont think it is to protect future generations who will watch it in 1-6 order.
Future Generations will have a choice. They can watch it 456123
like we all did, or they can watch it 1-6. There will be two different,
uh well (gulp) "points of view" from which they can watch.
There will be Luke's POV which we all got. Where he discovers the nature of the force and his relations at the same time we do.
Or there will be the Obi Wan point of view. Where they watch it 1-6 and know all that Obi-Wan knows.
I think that not protecting the "surprises" is a great idea.
It will be facsinating to watch it from that POV. To watch Episode
4 for the first time, having watched the PT already. So that when Obi-Wan tells Luke about his father. Our Children can wonder what the old guy is up to. So When Luke meets Yoda for the first time, we are on his and Obi-wan's side. Looking down at Luke, pleading with him to stay and not go to Bespin. Because we know what happens when you run off headstrong. And when Vader gets Luke out on that catwalk in Bespin. We know the truth and are just waiting to see it finally delivered. I think that is fantastic. Surprises only work for one viewing.
Even for us, we got the surprise once in ESB, then we spent the next 20 years watching the it an ANH for all the hints about it. It is more fun to watch Omniciently. (that cant be spelled right).
Does anyone agree? or is it just me.
