    Predictions for Episode III

    Just for something to do, I'm gonna make a list of stuff I think might be possible to see in Episode III, then I'm gonna print it out and seal it up until the movie comes out and then see what, if anything I got right. Here goes:

    The Death Star: I think, with the DS stuff in AOTC, that we could see the DS in its early phases of construction, a lot less completed than the DS2 in ROTJ.

    Tarkin: There's word from Lucasfilm about a new villain for the third movie and this could very well be Tarkin. The guy was bossing Vader around in ANH, we have got to see why.

    Mon Calamari and Sullustans: It's clear from ROTJ that these two types of aliens are prominent members in the alliance but we don't see any of them in TPM and there's no indication they'll be in AOTC. I hope they're in Ep III just to show some continuity with the OT. (I'd LOVE it if they had Akbar as Tarkins servant like in the EU stories)

    Jabba and Boba Fett hunting Jedi: I'd love to see these two pooling their resources to hunt down the Jedi for Palpy. It's almost certain we'll see Fett doing this (he'll be sixteen so he's old enough) and I hope Jabba at least makes a brief appearance, maybe dispatching a new cool bounty hunter who gets killed trying to get Obi Wan or maybe by Fett. This would also be a good time for cameos by more of Jabba's cronies like Bib, Ephant Mon, and AMANAMAN. I'd love to see him in action but that will never happen. The other bounty hunters from ESB would also make nice cameos, esp IG-88 and BOSSK.

    Alderaan: I'd bet my ^%$@# that we see Alderaan in the next movie. We're definately gonna see more of Bail Organa, hell be like Mace was in TPM in AOTC but he'll have a larger role in the next one. It would also add to Alderaan's destruction in ANH if we got to see how beautiful it was.

    Mon Mothma: We gotta see her as a senator or something. I'm sure there will at least be a hint of the rebellion to come.

    Krayt Dragon: I don't know how but if George can work one into the plot I'd love it.

    Sttuf I would prefer NOT to see:

    Han Solo et. al. : I think that Han, Chewie and the Falcon should be completely left out of the prequels. It would just be ridiculous to incorporate them in ANY way into them. They should be left to the OT.

    Naboo: I think we've seen enough of Naboo. It's a pretty cool planet but I think that we need new ones. It's been in two movies now and that's enough. I'd say the same for Coruscant except I want to see it as the Center of the Empire. And Tatooine wil be in it FOR SURE. I can feel it.

    Finally, my pick for the title would be REVENGE OF THE SITH. This would mirror RETURN OF THE JEDI, and, since "revenge" was something deemed inappropriate for Jedi's title, and Jedi in general, it is something that would suit the Sith perfectly. Hell, Maul even says in TPM "At last we will have revenge". I don't know, it's just a hunch I have.

    I never thought of the REVENGE thing before. Good Idea, Bosskman.

    I definitely want to see Alderaan in Episode III. How can George let those magnificent MCQuarrie paintings go to waste?

    The Ackbar scene would be a nice touch. I think Rick Mc said neither Tarkin nor Mothma would be in the third film. But he might be a durty liar, too. So we'll see.

    I hope we see very little, if any, of Tatooine. Its already been in 4 out of the 5 movies, and its supposed to be one of the most distant planets from the republic (yeah right). I guess the one small scene that George filmed for Tatooine while shooting epII will be in it, but I hope thats it.

    Exactly Chewie, we will only see ONE shot on Tatooine in SWIII. I have this from a very good source, George Lucas.

    In fact he says as much in the making of SWEII on the official site.

    He said while he was in Tunisia, he was getting a shot for EIII. They asked him why & he said it is too expensive and pretty pointless to show up in the next few years with all the crew, all the actors, etc just to get one shot.

    But what that shot could be? It would have to be Obi hiding Luke from Vader, thats the only thing I can think of that would be happening on Tatooine in this film.

    We have to see interaction between Obi Wan and Owen in EIII. I agree it would be enough for Obi Wan to give Luke to Owen and Beru, and then have Owen call him crazy before he takes off into the Jundland Wastes. They should show Dagobah too, I'm fairly sure that's where the twins are born. (There's something familiar about this place). If they show Jabba, I hope he's either on Nal Hutta or in a spaceship. It would be cool I think for Jabba to have a ship that's small enuff to warrant it being made into a toy. One the size of the Falcon would be fine. Even if he's only a hologram, Jabba HAS GOT TO BE IN THIS MOVIE! Corellia would be cool to see as would KDY, and the Academy.

    AOTC SPOILER BELOW: (in case there's need for a Spoiler warning)























    Mon Calamari and Sullustans: It's clear from ROTJ that these two types of aliens are prominent members in the alliance but we don't see any of them in TPM and there's no indication they'll be in AOTC.
    Sullustans are actually in AOTC, they're listed under the species list in the AOTC databank on the official site.

    End of Spoiler:

    Exclamation Coolest hunk of junk ever

    Bosskman - I've read early versions of EPIII (albeit unreliable) that imply the Millenium Falcon (sans Han & Chewie) has a cameo late in the movie. I can be more specific if you want...

    I think I might've said this before, but McCallum also said we wouldn't see Yoda fight in AOTC either, which we now know not to be true (Aww YEAH!).

    The way I understand it, GL filmed that scene because dragging the entire crew to Tunisia just to shoot one scene that will last, at most, a few minutes would be insane. Thus we can assume that Tatooine will play a minimal role in Ep3.

    Interesting note on that point, Assuming a drastic rewrite doesn't take place and that scene isn't cut, ESB will be the only film in the entire saga to not show Tatooine in some capacity.

    I agree wholeheartedly with Booskman on the Tarkin,Mon Mothma, and Alderaan ideas.
    Everthing else I part with him on.Han and Chewie NEED to be seen.They are major players like it or not.
    Boba Fett and any other stupid bounty hunters don't belong in the prequels at all.I find the whole Jango,Boba,clone thing ridiculous.Han and Chewie need to be seen period.Same with Tarkin ,Mon Mothma and Ackbar.Scream like a girl Fett is a no one in the Ot and he gets a major history in the prequels!!Oh please.The whole anti-hero badass bounty hunter thing was really old for me before it started.IMHO
    Bye to all.thanks for some good times.
