Post New Info On Episode II

I just finished reading a very informative article on Episode II, on IGN.com's web site. Here's the link:

Very informative indeed!

I like the idea of mature Jar Jar. I always thought that the character has potential.

Will we see a Senator Jar Jar?

I dunno... whenever I think of a "mature" Jar Jar, I hear a cross between Yoda and the Priest from "The Princess Bride":

"Meesa feah leads to anguh. Meesa anguh leads to hate. Meesa hate leads to the Dawk Side. That's why meesa Light Jedi!"

Personally, I'm with millions of other SW fans, I hate Jar Jar. But, kids love 'im, and they're all Lucas really cares about - besides telling the story the way he wants it told.

Of course, if he were a Jedi, we could always get lucky and see him slice his own face off when he ignites his lightsaber while into the emitter.

"Wow... pwetty!"

::PSSHHVOO::

"ACK!"

::thud::

Jar Jar dead!

hehehe

Interesting read.

Thanks for the heads-up!

As for Jar-Jar, he has no chance of redeeming ( sp? ) himself after Episode 1.

Jar Jar MUST die!

I've heard all the arguments for his inclusion: "He's for the kiddies..." and so on, but really, if kids are gonna get stuck into SW, don't we want it for real reasons? Not just the attraction of a single, retarded, floppy-eard, Gungan?

I apologise for heading a bit OT.

I think Jar Jar can be a good mature character, just like Captain Tarpals.

Don't forget that Episode 2 is set 10 years after TPM (since Anakin is 19 years old) so I'm sure his clumsy accent won't be there in Episode 2.

The fact of the matter is, however, that Lucas originally created Star Wars as a kids' fairytale in space. He never intended it to become a serious or semi-serious sci-fi, and certainly did not expect it to get the adult following it has. This unforseen success was incidental. It would therefore be a betrayal/contradiction of the basic Star Wars ethos to make it too esoteric.

I know that, but somehow you have to move on, especially when your original idea dates back 20+ years ago!

The majority of Star Wars fans are expecting something a little more mature. Besides, all this senatorial stuff, and the upcoming "tragedy"... this ain't for kids anymore...
