Obi-Wan, Vader and co

After seeing SW3 for the 3rd time lol.

I believe Obi-Wan, Darth Vader, the Emperor and Yoda all have alot more depth to them when you watch the OT.

You can relate to them and their past experience alot more too.

Let me know what you guys think.

Agreed. The biggest thing I like about ROTS is that it adds so much weight to the original trilogy.

Agreed. Vader has because easily 10-15 times scarier as well.

I also find it amusing to see Yoda in ESB. He is so old and frail and then you think back to seeing him slash his way through Clones. It really does give all the characters a lot more depth. ROTS makes the prequel trilogy and the old trilogy make more sense, as well as give them more meaning and depth. This last movie has really improved the saga overall.

Indeed. You really imagine what it must have been like living in solitude on that swamp planet. Slowly losing your sanity.

I think it really improved some key moments, and some interesting quotes. Primarily the last scenes in ROTJ, when the emperor was force lightninging Luke, you really know what Vader is seeing. And in that moment, you know that he is seeing the dark side for what it truly is. He finally realizes that the dark side doesnt lead to protecting those you love, but it leads only to destruction and death. And the moment when he takes the mask off, you know that he truly understands what it means to protect the ones you love, and that it has nothing to do with manipulating midichlorians.

Also a lot of quotes gained more meaning, like when Yoda says "Don't underestimate the power of the emperor, or suffer your father's fate, you will." Now we know he is the expert on underestimating the emperor.


Yeah, you'd think the Emperor had come back to life or something.

It is interesting that in ROTJ Anakin makes the other choice when Palp is "lightning" a victom.

George is a fan of recurring themes and the power of choice. I really love the mirror image of it all.
