Anybody else check out the March issue of Vanity Fair? Y'know the one with Anakin and Padme on the cover? Helloooo?
Anyways, some cool pictures (Mace with a beard, Obi-Wan with a red-bladed saber, a nice maquette of the Kaminoan and Senator Tessek ) some blah pictures (a really boring profile shot of Jango's helmet, Artoo in a crate).
An interesting quote from George Lucas, in response to the focus on the love story: "I'd call it a love haiku more than a love sonnet. It's shorter than a traditional love story, and thinner than a traditional love story, but still, hopefully, has the same impact as a traditional love story."
A frightening qoute from Natalie Portman: "This is George's Titanic."
Hayden being clueless as to how his voice will evolve into Vader's: "I think he becomes half-mechanical, and, um, the dark helmet......Maybe that has something to do with his voice getting lower?"
Aside from some insulting comments from Lucas about internet message boards and an inane comparison of Darth Sidious and Darth Maul to the Taliban and al-Qaeda, it has little revelations for those of us who follow the spoilers.
One thing that bugs me, the entire issue refers to Padme as Amidala. Sooo, which one is it?
