why send all jedi to geonosis
 
i was wondering if it really was necassary to send all jedi to geonosis.
plz share the reason why they did what they did. or maybe i just missed when they explained it in the movie

Commander Obi-Wan 02-03-2006 09:43 PM

Perhaps to ensure the "Chosen One" would survive. I am not completely sure either.

Darth_Death 02-03-2006 09:47 PM

but did they no of anikan being on geonosis? they probably thought he was on naboo with padme' still...

Darth_Terros 02-04-2006 02:20 AM

That wasnt ALL the jedi.

Darth_Death 02-04-2006 12:31 PM

well alot did. i think i read somewhere they sent like 200

MachineCult 02-04-2006 05:34 PM

Yeah and there are thousands of Jedi spread across the galaxy.

Darth_Death 02-04-2006 05:44 PM

could it been because of dooku and other separittist leader being on the planet?

Killwithhonor 02-04-2006 06:04 PM

Well who sent them there in the first place? Or did they all go because of Anakin like Commander Obi Wan said?

Darth_Death 02-04-2006 06:16 PM

mace windu sent them. remember in the episode II he says "i will gather what troops we can" ~ Mace Windu

"troops" meaning jedi

boinga1 02-07-2006 11:13 PM

actually he said "Jedi" specifically. Anyways, the point was to rescue two of their own, and probably attempt to capture Dooku and the other leaders. Tactically, not knowing about the huge droid army, it makes sense.

Star Wars-ish answer: Like Darth Death said, Mace ordered them there.

Propably real answer: Lucas/whoever wanted to show lots of jedi fighting. :)

Did the council even know about dooku at this point?

Yes, early in the movie the jedi (Yoda, Mace Windu, Plo Koon, Ki-Adi Mundi) talk with Palpatine and then with Padmé about Dooku. He´s known as the leader of the separatists.

Even if the war has not started yet, they are involved in negociations with the separatist confederacy. What Obi Wan sees in Geonosis it´s just the final stablishment of the CIS.

Ok cool been awhile since i watched it and wasnt too sure.

They needed to rescue Obi-One and Anakin, they sent many jedi there because at that point they didn't have an army that could do it for them. The only warriors of the republic were only jedi.

Well, at least until the Clone troopers came.

Kurgan 03-01-2006 12:33 AM

Originally they were only going to rescue Obi-Wan, since Anakin had obeyed their orders to stay put... so all those Jedi were there to save Obi-Wan. And if Yoda's use of the clones to attack the Seperatist forces was a spur of the moment thing (as the movie leads us to believe) then the surviving Jedi going in to help them out was also an improvisation... or maybe there's some more background I'm missing from the supplementary materials.

Redtech 03-02-2006 12:58 PM

This isn't Tolkien y'know. I mean, there isn't going to be at least 15 books produced that explain the exact details of Geonosian diplomacy and cultural society and what the Kaminoans thought of Yoda's appearance and the deployment of the Clone Army, or how exactly Kuat was being compensated for dragging the Hardware half way around the universe for one mission....

There'll be a few EUs that say "Yoda magically teleported to Kamino and said "fight right away we will" and that's it.

Kurgan 03-02-2006 11:11 PM

Yeah but Tolkien is dead and most fans would consider making new works in his "universe" to be blasphemous. Lucas freely supports the publishing of new works in his empire, and the amount of material shows little sign of slowing down just because the movies are over. All it takes is somebody to think "this could sell" and it'll get made. ;)

Redtech 03-03-2006 09:27 AM

And that's how we end up with the Emperor returning, Luke joining the dark side, a super DUPER star destroyer with a Death Star Cannon mounted on the underside oh, and X-wings getting owned by a flying rock with wings.

Oh well, Chewie getting squished by the moon was "worthy", I guess.
-----------------------------------
Just that sometimes, it is just "made up as it goes along". Lucas doesn't plan in so much depth that there's much space to set up the rules. Which means, anything goes. I do agree that "is" a good thing. But consistancy lacks as a result.

I mean, I've found your argument on mass produced sabres pretty amusing, but heck, since Lucas never laid any rules besides 'plot devices' it goes either way.
