Thanks. Glad to be back.

Firast, Vader's body did dissapear in RotJ, Like I said earlier, Luke is only burning his suit. linko I beleive the reason some jedi dissapear and some don't is some haven't learned how to do it... The first time Yoda comes in contact with the 'afterlife' is during intense meditation. I beleive becoming one with the force is an ability you have to acquire through trainig and/or meditation. Hopefully RotS will clear this up for us (they said it will).
In regards to Vader, I was refering to the fact that we don't see him disappear as we did Obiwan and Yodi. Assuming he did, as I'm guessing we can since the Star Wars webpeople say we can, then he took a while to do it. Course, it may just mean that he WAS at peace when he died, given that he redeemed himself in order to save his son. Granted, there's a fair bit of speculation as to the training required to do it, so it may have been something Quigon couldn't have done. I definitely heard his voice shouting in Episode II though, so it seems his spirit is still around (perhaps released by the pyre), unless it was just a memory of his voice brought upon by the violence surrounding Anakin. It will be interesting to find out how George ties it all together.

Also, You mentionned GL had planned to make a third trilogy, I beleive this is a slight misconception by many people... At one point GL's story was made up of 9 episodes, but he realised he could tell it in 6, meaning he 'compressed' it into 6 episodes and did not cut extra episodes... linko
Ah, hadn't heard about that. My understanding is that he'd developed the story beyond the passing of Anakin, but decided to trim it down to six, given the time requirements it would take to do the other three, his desire to work on other projects, and the fact that the six movies cover the life of Anakin. That is to say, I thought he'd originally planned on covering more on Luke and company, but decided that the complete story of Anakin was enough so trimmed it down. My mistake; thanks for clearing it up for me.
