Well, read on if you're interested......

edit leXX - Episode 3 spoiler ahead!

Given how tight-lipped everyone usually is on the set of a Star Wars movie, it's a refreshing change this morning to read the interview with Peter Mayhew, aka the Wookie with a heart of gold. Speaking to LOK magazine, via TheForce.Net, Mayhew - who clearly hasn't read all the way through his confidentiality contract with Lucasfilm - merrily reveals a whole heap of goodies on what we can expect from the great bearded one in Episode III.Now this story will get a little dull if you're not willing to highlight the text below - but we've read it and think it's more a case of scene and plot setting than giving away any true spoilers. But that's our opinion.

[Asked what role he'll be playing in Episode III's story development, Mayhew says: 'I was told by George Lucas that I would be playing a large part in the story including the delivering of two twin babies and playing a role in a major battle scene that involves many war machines. Sadly, I have not read those sequences of the script yet.'

Asked what he thinks of the bits of the script he has seen, Mayhew says; 'Again, I haven’t really seen the complete script. Lucas only gives us copies for that days shooting. But from what I’ve seen, it looks good. Of course, I really don’t have any lines (he laughs). Lucas has really changed his writing style from back when he wrote the original trilogy. He is much bolder and willing to push the envelope in both settings and dialogue. In fact, the opening action scene involving many Wookiees takes place on one of the many new planets seen in this movie


Thoughts?

I'm going to be brave and go spoiler-free for this one. I've read the stuff on TFN from the official site, but I'm highlighting nothing :p

Thank you LeXX for alerting us to spoilers. And BB, did you post whatever that is without [spoiler] tag? SHAME ON YOU! And you Semi! Encouraging him!! :ball: Oh, hang on, I didn't tell you about my NS policy did I? I'll let you off then!

I've got to say, The OS seems to be playing the 'spoiler' card rather prominently this time around. (Even though I don't consider their stuff spoilers)
Bless 'em!

must be strong and stay away from spoilers.

I knew somehow Chewie'd be involved with the delivering of either of the twins, but apparently it's both of them.

I can't wait for this movie to come out, i think i know how people felt bak in 1983...

No, he posted it with the spoiler tags. I just told everyone what the spoiler is (because otherwise ppl would have had to read the spoiler to find out what it was about).

Thank you for making people aware LeXX, it takes a special kind of muppet to not mention what they're spoiling. :p

Not that much of a Spoiler but at least we know we're getting some kickass wookies having a big part in the film :D
Hopefully it's not cgi.... which i'm pretty sure it isn't, too many hairs probably :p

Please people, be careful what you post. Even if you don't think it is a big spoiler, some people don't want to know any details whatsoever. If you are unsure, use the [spoiler] tags to be safe. Thank you.

Why bother....if it's an opening scene it will be in future trailers....and unless you don't have a TV and never go to the movies you will not avoid a trailer of some kind.

It's still much fun to be amazed and surprised by a trailer, at least more than by something you read. But for my part, I just can't wait to see the movie and use the little bit of info i can gather here and there to keep me hyped up.

We basically know nothing but the general plot of ep3, and the only info i expect to see unvieled is about what characters or what type of scene we're gonna get, this isn't enough to spoil my fun.

However som people wann keep it a surprise until the last minute, and, i guess, be overwhelmed (sp?) by everything they see because they really had NO clue whatsoever, that why you should use the tags basically.

in one word : respect.

Man, that's just awesome. I always wanted to see more of that in the movies. And thanks Baw Bag for letting us spoiler freaks in on it. :D

This is my own thought solely (and maybe someone's else intuition). When Ben comes to Mos Eisley canteena, he talks to a wookie, when Luke comes Ben says: "Chubacca here...". And it never mentioned whether for 20 years Ben never had dealings with him. So what's said in the spoiler is pretty much looks like a meeting of old friends in A New Hope. It's obvious that they never had a longlasting friendship, and probably the role of Chubacca is his not fully knowing what he is doing (as mentioned in the spoiler he's doing). My point is that this spoiler is very close to logic and is therefore more probable than other hundreds I've heard about ep3.

Here's another slight teaser about episode III, although somewhat silly.....

For all the talk of Pincess Leia's haircuts in the original Star Wars trilogy, barely a column inch is spared for the spectacular barnets of the films' male stars. From Luke's proto-mullet to Han's shaggy mop, the unavailability of modern hair-styling products is painfully obvious throughout the trilogy. However, as Episode III reaches the point where events flow into its seventies predecessor, steps are being taken to ensure that at least their haircuts won't look amiss.
:D

DOWN WITH THE MULLET!!!
And NO to hair buns!

Besides... there were no mullets in the originals anyway...
