Lucas, famous for his young Indiana Jones series, is going to be making a Young Darth Vader series for television. (rumors pointing to this being true).
Like the previews for Season 2 of the Clone Wars cartoon, some of the plot points have snuck out:
EPISODE 1: Darth Vader's pet womprat gets stuck in a tree. Hating the fact that he can't see the rungs on his ladder through that black helmet of his, Vader gets mad after a particularly embarassing accident and burns down the forest. A national park destroyed, the planetary government gets mad and joins the Rebellion over the incident.
EPISODE 2: Vader's bored and decides to pull the wings off flies. Adjusting to his bionic hands proves difficult for catching small insects, so Vader goes to Tatooine and pulls the wings off Watto. He inadvertently frees all the slaves while visiting there, and the Empire gives each of the freed men 40 acres and a ronto, and 98% income taxes to go along with it.
EPISODE 3: Having been out of the racing circuit for the total duration of the Clone Wars, Vader decides he wants to get back into the sport of things. He helps the eccentric Raith Sienar design his prototype TIE Fighter to enter in the Ord Mantell Open. Vader arms his ship and wins by shooting all his opponents from behind.
EPISODE 4: Vader discovers he has the power to choke Imprerial officers. When General Digestous gets something caught in his throat while snacking in the officer's mess, Vader tries to dislodge the food particle that's choking him, but instead misgauges the power of his bionics, and crushes the poor officer's larynx. This proves quite fun, and Vader continues practicing. It is finally revealed as to what really happened to the missing crew of the Katana Fleet.
EPISODE 5: Vader gets lonely and tries to build himself a droid to keep himself company. Guri's origins are finally revealed. But Vader's unable to satisfy her, her logic circuits can't handle his bi-polar disorder, and conswquently she runs away from him and hooks up with Xizor. Now we really know why Vader hates him so much.
EPISODE 6: More to come....
