The tie-in novels had the idea that wookiees lived for centuries, with Chewie being roughly 200.

Also, seeing him here doesn't really make him any older than we already knew. Remember, he fought at Yoda's side back in Episode III. That would have been before this.

Looks real fun, though I'm still not entirely sold on the kid playing Han. Gonna have to see his full performance to know for sure though, of course.

I never watched Episode 3, the first two put me off of anything Star Wars for a long time.

Everything looks good except the terrible pick for Han. His creepy grin throws everything way the fudge off. Shoulda went with Anthony Ingruber.

Your never going to fill Harrison's shoes, but I think they did a fantastic job with casting.

I'll probably see it someday, but even if it's magnitudes better than the first two, it would still be far less than 4-6.

I think Ep I is better than III personally, but still rough, and none are nearly as good as the OT (or ST in my opinion).

no it definitely doesn't match 4-6, but they are never going to do that. sometimes things just have a magic about them, and 4-6 def have that.

III delivers on the promise of the prequels far more than I-II. This is where the important stuff happens in terms of "the dark times" Obi-Wan told us about so long ago, and some of the things that Lucas had only mentioned in interview finally come to pass in terms of how/why Anakin becomes Vader.


There had been rumors and references for years to a fight on a volcano, and that was why he needed the armor. Nice to see he followed through on that.

I thought 3.5 was on par with 4-6. Enjoyed it greatly.

It delivers on cramming every bit of OT set up it could into that one movie, sure, but that doesn't make it a good movie (in my opinion obviously).

It's not the settings or the characters, it's the story and the direction for those settings and characters that didn't get the job done. It delivered on shoehorning his PT story to line up with the OT story, but even then there are still major discrepancies that a good writer would have been able to avoid. I can give Ep I a pass because it was still a ways from where we picked up in the OT, but III simply didn't do enough to link it the way the OT set it up.
