I know, I wasn't expecting an answer. I just found it a little out of place for Lucas, considering his past a-sexual approach to some aspects of Star Wars.

Since when? I guess you've never seen Howard the Duck. :D

For the benefit of me, who also hasn't heard of Howard the Duck, do tell.

Howard the Duck was one of the greatest advertising gimmicks of all time, complete with giant cigar smokin' billboards.

Howard is an animatronic/puppet Duck thing, a gian duck licking in a human world, smoking a cigar and spouting of... uh... wise-quacks. Kinda seedy, really stupid. Really really stupid. Don't concern yourself with it.

Regarding Star Wars sexiness, there really wasn't any place to put the wimmins' in the other movies. Ep. V is out... ice planet, cloud city, swamp planet... unsexy. No room for anything sexful.

But in Ep. IV there's kinda-sorta some sexuality, in the only place avialable, the cantina, we see for about 1/2 a second the skintight bodysuit wearin' Tonnika sisters.
But more importantly, in the orginal script, Luke's frined Cammie was supposed to exist for the sole purpose of looking nice.

In Ep. VI classic edition there's exotic dancin' Oola, and in the Special Edition, there're the scantily clad singers Rystall, Lyn Me, and, uh, Greeta too.

And of course there's slave-chains Leia, an outfit also modeled in Ep. I.

In Ep. I, Zebulba's blue hued twins aren't hard on the eyes...

As one can see, this is nothing really new.
George just likes his women blue/green/whatever.

Oh, BTW, THX-1138 has some fairly explicit sexuality in it.

just being pedantic but shouldn't it be "je ne sais quis" - "i don't know what" as opposed to"je ne sais pas" - "i don't understand"

I would not want to see a nude scene in SW. It just would not fit. I would not want to see Natalie Portman nude, because she seems too wholesome.

LUCAS ALWAYS WANTED RATED PG MOVIES
so as long as it is allowed he will do it

the original movies were less sexual in nature (dress wise)
because the 70's culture for the most part was less sexual than our culture.

now that we see thongs on tv and such it is less frowned upon.

SAME THING WITH BLOOD IN THE SW MOVIES
in ANH ponda baba's arm sits in a pool of blood

in
the 2 latest movies
THE MOST WE SEE IS A RED MIST FROM MAUL'S DEATH

Howard the Duck made it in Episode II. If you look at the scene where Obi-Wan goes to see Yoda he's walking to the right as Obi-Wan heads left. Aayla Secura is also in this scene.

No, he's right. Je ne sais pas literally translates to "I do not know." Je ne comprende pas means "I do not understand." And I've never heard anyone say je ne sais quis. In conversation, it's okay to say je ne sais pas in the context that Griswold used.

It seems that Lucas did his job well, making an appearance of a breast in starwars movie very subtle and hard to see... If your wondering what I'm talking about, then pop in ROTJ and fast farward it to the part when OOla's dancing and Jabba pushes the button to drop her in the Rancor pit, as she is squirming her boob pops out for a split second, and you , the viewer has a pretty good view of it :)

I think that was probably an accident and they just didn't want to redo the take.

Well, glad to know someone's so attentive to Star Wars based nudity. Save yourself a frame by frame tit popout analysis and go rent a porno or something. :rolleyes:

On our French translation question, the phrase that should have been used is 'je ne sais quoi', which means 'I don't know what' but in the context of, inter alia, women can me 'that indefinable quality'.

I think nudity is SW would be dumb... You guys like watching the SW films alot right? Well, what if some girl like Natalie Portman or Leia were nude in a scene, and you don't think they looked good at all, then you would have to fastforward throught that part every time you watch the movie...:(

I don't wanna see Padme Amidala (Nathalie Portman) nude in EP III, would ruin too much.

Let's have some more of Aayla Secura (Amy Allen) in EP III!!! :D :cool: Now that's a hot and sexy babe! And way more kick-ass than Padme Amidala.

(Actually it's said Amy Allen is an ILM employee. Guess I should put in my resume at ILM! Lol :p j/k)

Well, sure, Aayla is a kick-ass jedi babe, but how can you possibly beat "Aggressive negotiations"? :D :amidala:
