Has anyone read the article in issue 52? I know it is an older article and I have read it before, but it is newly posted on the SW site and it reminded me of some things. Here are some points I'd like to talk about.
GL said that for the basic story he sticks to his original ideas. He also said that the essence of the movie stays the same and that he has kept the style of all the movies the same so that they all work as one piece.
If that is true, then how does that explain midichlorians. That's not true and it interfers with the OT, so obviously they don't work as one piece.
Also in the article he talks about good ideas and bad ideas. About how you may have tons of good ideas, but it is the bad ideas that usually tear apart a film.
I believe this part that he is talking about is the reaction of the fans to Jar Jar and to the midichlorians. He knows they were bad ideas and somehow has to make up for them.
Anyone else have any thoughts on this? If not, I don't blame you. the midichlorian debate has gone on long enough, Just thought it was interesting how he says this AFTER Episode I is made.
