    I didn't make it. But then I think that it was likely done on purpose, as in "Know death" or "Know your enemy."

    Perhaps. Doesn't really make any sense to me, though.

    Facebook photoshops don't always pass smell and quality tests but I couldn't pass this one up given the topic of this thread.

    A Tarantino Boba Fett flick? We'd all go see that.

    Didn't take Disney long to begin milking its new cash cow. Watch out for franchise fatigue down the road

    There's also the prequel about how his father first got into the bounty hunting business:

    It would take an especially potent miracle for a Yoda-centric movie not to be horrible, and destroy any last vestiges of his mystique.



    We could see him spending an entire Saturday of detention in the Tosche Schoolhouse's library, learning valuable lessons and getting high with other teens he encounters all the time, but never got a chance to really know.



    Heck, we might even get a female Jedi with a speaking role.



    The Maker help me, that actually sounds kind of awesome. Can it be a hot, non-mute female Jedi? :D

    No this had been part of Lucas's plan since 1978. The original plan was always to do spinoff movies about the backstory in the GFFA.

    Bring on Ice Cream Maker Guy: The Motion Picture.

    What flavor was inside Willrow Hood's device? Only the enemies of Galactic freedom know....and they want it.

    Not really interested in more back and side stories. Move forward.

    Grievous in ROTS was barely more developed than Maul had been two films earlier. It took Expanded Universe materials and the recent Clone Wars series to flesh him out as a Kaleesh warlord who had been cybernetically reconstructed (almost Vader style) after a shuttle crash.

    The movie itself makes him out to be fairly one-dimensional.

    Fuck. Palpatine is undeveloped. We never learn what motivates him, why he turned to the Sith.

    Really, the only characters in the entire Saga with any serious development are Anakin and Luke. Everyone else is more caricature than character, and that includes Han and Leia.

    Grievous still has more character even without the backstory. Maul has nothing. He is just a grunt.

    I remember a Web journal or disc extra where Lucas is talking about Darth Sidious/Palpatine and says something along the lines of "he's the Pure Evil. The Sith Lord who's out for power simply for power's sake. It doesn't matter to the story what motivates him, that's not so important. All you know is that his life has brought him to this point where he wants galactic domination."

    Lucas creates amazing characters....he just does a piss-poor job in fleshing most of them out and leaves that to the authors of the novels and comics and the writers of the television series.

    Oh, yeah. Can't argue that. Maul looked great....he was just as deep as a thimble.

    Yoda IMO has the best merchandizing capabilities for Disney and as a character to add to their theme parks he's perfect for younger children.

    Regarding TV - ABC, Disney's network - has had very spotty luck with sci-fi. Their two recent attempts - Defying Gravity and V both went down in flames.

    I'm not sure ABC is anxious to hop back into that bailiwick even with the name Star Wars affixed to the show's title.

    Sorry, but: that's just lazy storytelling.
