If Luke does pop up, I think it will be as a background character to an Obi-Wan on Tatooine story. probably something along the lines of Luke being found out to be Vaders kid by some bounty hunters and Obi-Wan saves his ass without Luke ever knowing it.

I think Luke's life would have been pretty boring until those droids showed up in his life.
Leia though.... I can imagine she got into a lot of exciting situations helping out daddy, Mon Mothma, Admiral Ackbar, etc.

Yeah, someone brilliant and devious enough to figure out that they're both named "Skywalker"...

is it public knowledge in the SW universe that Darth Vader == Anakin Skywalker? Did anyone beyond Obi-Wan and Yoda know and survive?

Re: New Star Wars animated show "Rebels" coming fall 2014

I was referring more to the fact that it shouldn't have been that hard for Vader himself, or the Emperor, to figure out that a Tattooine-dwelling boy named Skywalker might be related to him. I'm hardly the first person to offer that criticism of what the prequels established, so I thought people would get the joke.

Presumably he's dead.

The fannish explanation of that is that Tattooine was chosen since it was somewhere to which Anakin would never want to return due to what happened with his mother. Whether that makes sense, I dunno.

I'm guessing Mace probably died, though if he didn't and he somehow managed to slip into hiding and avoid the Emperor's and Vader's troops and spies over the years he's probably keeping as low a profile as humanly possible.

After all, after Yoda he was the most senior and highest-ranking Jedi in the galaxy and would probably leave a pretty powerful Force trail. Masking himself from discovery by practicioners of the Dark Side would be his first priority because he could always change his physical appearance to fool the vast majority of regular citizens who happened to see him.

The Zahn-explanation for that is that the Dark Jedi that Yoda defeated on Dagobah (creating the Dark Side impression in the dead tree where Luke fights himself as Vader) acted as a 'shield' for Yoda's own force impression.

The largest living rodent is the capybara, which ranges from about one to one and a third meters in length. The largest known extinct rodent is estimated to have been three meters long, about the size of a horse or bull.

Re: New Star Wars animated show "Rebels" coming fall 2014

Yeah, the last real-life rodent that was the size of a fictional Tatooine womp rat lived long ago and has long since gone extinct. But can you imagine if a six-foot-long rodent of that size existed today and the numbers of sport and food hunters who would track the things to the brink of nonexistence?

That's why it's probably for the best that dinosaurs of prehistoric scale have been gone for about 65 million years. Rednecks, poachers and sportsmen would shoot most of them dead for enormous trophies and bragging rights.
