    Good to Go!

    "Have you ever encountered a Jedi Knight before, sir? We will not survive this."

    Luke Skywalker got his first look at a lightsaber in the quiet solitude of Obi-Wan Kenobi's hut, where the old Jedi Knight recounted the glory days of the Republic, before the dark times, before the Empire. Ever since then, Star Wars fans have wondered what it was like, when the Jedi were plentiful, and they defended peace and justice like no other force in the galaxy.

    It's an image fans have been waiting decades for: a harsh battlefield on a distant world abuzz with the glow and sound of hundreds of lightsabers. Episode II will finally make this vision a reality. To deliver this on screen, Stunt Coordinator Nick Gillard worked with Jedi actors Samuel L. Jackson, Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen and dozens of extras to create a diversity of fighting styles fit for the Jedi order.

    Man, there is some really cool stuff in here, go to STARWARS.COM and check it out...
    The Force is strong with this one.

    Of course, that's my opinion I could be wrong.

    Talking "You can count ME in!"

    I am really looking forward to this scene in the film. It's a little odd considering our initial impression of the JEDI were that they were "great warriors", something that was quickly dispelled by Yoda in ESB "Wars not make one great". In TPM we were introduced to the JEDI as peacekeepers and not these soldiers. Now we get to see them "in battle mode". Even though it is EU, I had a great time envisioning the battle scenes in "Cloak". Nicely written scenes, I thought!

    I agree, JediPartnr.
    I am eagerly anticipating the battle arena scene as we will get to finally see the Jedi order in combat.
    Also, just think of EPIII when we get to see the force that brings the Jedi down.
    The darker, the better; I cant wait to see Anakin become Palpy's own personal Jedi weedwacker.

    BOOHOO, my ISP won't allow me time to download, I keep getting a time out after 15 minutes. Curse this 56k modem!!!!

    Saw the screencaps at TFN and the new Jedi look nice. Like the Nikto jedi Adi gallia looked like a nice quiet girl in TPM and yet there she is kicking Geonosian tush, shocking isn't it? I'm curious though about the editing of the scenes. I was reading a report at god knows which site that said George was trying to please too much as a nod to fanboys and the negative reaction he got with TPM. Something about cramming too much into such a small space of time. Hope it isn't all messy and choppy. Who's actually the editor on AOTC? I know George does some of it but there's a real editor isn't there? Is it whatshisface Burrt again?

    Rodians with braids in their head finials on Coruscant? What is that all about...!!! There's some very strange costumes in this movie that's for sure. Am i the only one who isn't wetting themselves with excitement? I'm sort of cool about this movie coming out. I'll go see and then either get excited or sulk. I've got a fairly open mind to it all right now. I think I've just become overloaded with spoiler stuff and a bit blasť. Oh well we'll know whether it's good or bad come may 16th won't we. :happy:

    That's a cool picture of the Jedi with two lightsabers, though I think he's just playing around as everyone else is pretty calm. But what's cool about the picture is we get to see what appears to be Eeth Koth and Saesae.
