Note also that later Palpatine had no trouble besting Yoda.
I'd say there was at least a bit of trouble along the way. Palpatine just lucked out as far as being able to grab onto a handrail after he and Yoda were both propelled outward. Yoda also had oncoming stormtroopers to consider by that point and had lost his lightsaber.

That's true.

Mark looks more and more like Alec Guinness with each passing photo and video, doesn't he? I love it.

Let's hope he follows through on that only up to a point. Alec being dead and all.

That point being "Force ghost".

If there's a gif of Sir Alec doing an eyeroll or double take, now's the time.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

The questions on my mind today...


1. I wonder if we'll get a Ewan McGregor force ghost/voice...

2. Will Luke be able to do the bouncy PT lightsaber duel moves (ala Dooku/Yoda) or will they play it down a bit to be more like the OT?

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

I hope Ewan returns as the Force ghost of Obi-Wan. Yeah, yeah, we know: Luke only saw the old version of Obi-Wan after his death in the OT, but that's what morphing and CGI are for. They can easily pull it off. Start out as Alec Guinness, then morph into Ewan as Obi-Wan explains it was what he looked like during his prime as an active Jedi Knight.

Hey, he's a ghost. It's the Force. Anything's possible.

With today's technology they should just give us a CGI Guinness.

Or maybe not. At least it worked for Marlon Brando.

Being a huge fan of the OT, I suspect JJ will go more for that slower fighting style again, where the lightsabers seemed to have a greater sense of power behind them, and the battles looked much more like old-school classic swordfighting.

And I'd love to see a return to that style as well.

We might see a synthesis of the two approaches.
