So, Qui-Gon can still use the Force on stuff?

Thanks for not helping out during the Yoda/Palpatine fight, jerk!

( And also the whole not telling anyone Palpatine was a Sith thing. )

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

When he first saw the film a close friend was really confused by the Qui-Gon reveal at the end of ROTS. "Wait, huh? Qui-Gon? That was out of left field! Why didn't they show Yoda talking to his spirit then?" I then told him the silent meditation scene was supposed to be Yoda communicating with Qui-Gon via the Force. "Oh, okay. They didn't get that point across very well, then."

I can't say I was entirely in disagreement with him. If you don't know that the silent meditation sequence was connected to Qui-Gon then the later conversation with Obi-Wan can seem like a big HUH? DID I MISS SOMETHING? moment. I'm fine with it now, but I understand the confusion.

I think it was in the film novelization, but yeah - walking blind into the movie without searching out the book or soliciting someone else's opinions would have left one dumbfounded. They really should have put an explanation in there and dubbed in Liam's voice or something. In hindsight it all worked out fine and the scene works, but in 2005 it was another one of those "did Lucas really bother to think this scene out" moments.

Very happy to hear about this. I've had Netflix for a while now, so I'm very glad to know I'll actually be able to watch them as soon as they come out.
After the Marvel stuff, and now this I'm starting to think Netflix might be on the way to becoming the greatest thing in entertainment.

I ditched cable for Netflix almost 5 years ago. It's the only way I watch anything!

To what extent can Disney alter the films, though? Would their agreement to purchase LFL give them license to do so?

Admittedly, I don't know how these kinds of agreements affect a new studio's access to the older studio's catalog of films.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

If they release a new edition of ROTS they also need to put the "Yoda Arrives on Dagobah" scene back into the film. Even Rick McCallum said that it was a huge disappointment to lose that sequence and have to relegate it to the Extras section on a bonus disc. He hoped that if George (or somebody else) went back at some future date to re-edit the film they should show the wisdom to restore that scene.

If Netflix dumps those episodes all at once as they usually do I don't think I'll be able to pace myself. I'll need to order a pizza that night I think and just dive in.

Aaah, nothing like a fine anchovy pizza, some coke, and a good tv show marathon.

There are some alleged spoilers coming out about the Order 66 episode(s) that have made their way to the interwebz. It's not what I would have asked for but I'm not totally displeased.

I watched the first four episodes of the final season a few hours ago, they were pretty good, I won't say more because of spoilers. If people want spoilers I'm sure detailed descriptions of the episodes will show up soon.

^ Did those episodes leak onto the net? I may need to quit reading if everything is about to be spoiled.

They aired in Germany on Saturday. All but the last three episodes will have been shown there before they appear on Netflix, going by the current schedule.
