Yes, Episode III might just finish the legend on a good note.

Wookies=Asskicking.

Also, that Volcano Planet must be Sullust.

'Tis. There's going to be a whole bunch of new planets in this one (along with ye old faithful Coruscant, Naboo, and, more then likely, Tatooine).

Is this trailer available to anyone, or just the membership of the official site?

EDIT: Nevermind, I checked. Another kick in the guts for the cheap people. At least I can go home and listen to shot by shot updates on my radio.

What's some of your favourite little quirky moments from the original trilogy?
- When Han is being tortured in The Empire Strikes Back, you see Lando and Fett listening to his screams, and then looking at each other for a moment.
- Porkins last words: "I'm alright, I'm fine! AUUGHHHH!"
EDIT: Oh, just remembered another quirky moment. Look at Bib Fortunas face in ROTJ when Jabba says "Take him away!". I want to know what the guy who was playing him was thinking at that exact moment.

-Subulba's Poodoo comment in Episode 1 makes me laugh and groan at the same time.
-The way Luke throws his Yoda bitten rations away in disgust.
-The Imperial Officers who foolishly steps onto a gang way above the Imperial Genirators on Endor and tells the Rebel Commando group to stop right there, and then is knocked over the edge by Han throwing the charges at him. Followed by the 'You Rebel Scum' from the other Officer.
-Chewie fighting over the AT-ST's controls with the Ewoks.

Also, the Officers that wear black are Proper Field Officers. Mostly Stormtrooper Officers.

- Just about everything Palpatine says. That man has moxy.
- At one point, during the lightsabre duel in Cloud City, Vader leaps down a flight of stairs in the carbon chamber, with his cloak billowing behind him, looking for all the world like a black demon.
- "I'll bet you have..." *Blam!*
- Yoda fighting with Artoo.
- Fett's 'As you wish' sounds absolutely wonderful.
-Many other moments.

Oh yes, local TV just displayed the Ep III trailer.

Sidious/Palpatine has a mother fucking lightsabre!

Damn it! I was hoping it'd be black. I always wanted to see a black lightsabre blade.

Other quirky moments:
-When Vader enters the Tantive IV we see the Stormtroopers placing there dead on the sides of the Corridoor, putting the hands of the corpses on there chests. It's just so damn cool!
-Everytime a Stormtrooper falls off the edge into something.
-Yoda's stance when he's about to fight Dooku.

I would have gone for Zuckuss to start with, being my favourite Star Wars character and all, but I figured he was too minor to have a part. I'll go with Zuckuss.

Well, Guinness had a much bigger role in SW than Sebastian Shaw.  I'd agree with you if they replaced Guinness with Ewan McGregor at the end of ROTJ.

I saw the trailer for Episode III on AOL earlier tonight.  I dunno, it looks good, but I still have worries.  I marked out definately, but I'm worried if Hayden Christensen can pull of "evil" correctly.  The trailer is too reliant on old clips, which could contrast with the shitty nature of the new triology.  Although I will admit how the clips worked it really looked like there was an overall plan for the series and Lucas knew what he was doing.

I just noticed something today. I've never seen the special editions of the movies before and I watched Return of the Jedi today. Remember at the very, very end where Luke looks out and sees the sprits of Yoda, Obi-Wan and Anikan? Well, in the version I remember, it was Sebastian Shaw who played Anikan. Then, when I saw it today, it was HAYDEN as Anikan!  confused  I was like "HOLY SH**! HAYDEN?!"

Welcome to 4 months ago.

Yeah, pissed me off too. That was the change that almost stopped me from buying the DVDs. They are still fantastic movies, and that's what counts, but I think the guy who said "Lucas is polishing his diamond into dust." expressed my feelings quite well.

Mr. Shaw's role may have been a smaller one, but it was no less important.

I'm surprised Lucas didn't.

And that's another thing that pisses me off.  Why did Lucas cast Ewan McGregor as the young Obi-Wan?  He looks nothing like Alec Guinness.  I would have looked at old pictures of Alec Guinness when he was that age and tried to find an actor who looked like him.  I would not have watched Trainspotting and thought to myself, "Hey, that guy makes a good drug addict; I bet he'd make a great Jedi Knight."

You ain't kidding, sister.  Those things are tough.

If you play with a friend, one of you can pilot the snow speeder, and the other can work the harpoon.  My friend and I tried that, but we never quite managed to trip up the AT-AT.

On the other hand, when we played the Ewok level as the Imperials, we got inside the AT-ST together and ran the level on those teddy bears.  Until we walked into one of those log traps.

Everybody's probably seen the Episode III on either TV or the internet, but here's a few choice pictures:
Republic TIE Fighter:

Palpatine!

Battle over what may be Coruscant or Mustafar:

And just so we know that Anakin's evil:


The Republic TIE Fighter also makes the regular TIE engine noise.  big grin

That planet, with all the spacehips and the battling, and what not? That's Coruscant. Like ESB, this movie starts with an enourmous battle. Unlike ESB, there appear to be several other major battles contained within (like Kashyyk). Of course, many of those may only be glanced at.

 love The Republic TIE Fighter looks good, does it have a shield I wonder?

Also, I'm sure I saw the Z-95 Headhunter in the trailer as well.

Also, We can easily see the cosmetic wonders of the Darkside has done to Palpatine. Damn Naboo are ugly.

And since the films apparently make things in the books obsolete then surely what you think you know about Greedo goes out the window too?
According to theforce.net and their Star Wars encyclopedia, that Rodian was Greedo's father, who also happened to go by the name of Greedo.
 
Quote
From theforce.net:
Greedo the Elder   
this Rodian bounty hunter grew up on the planet Tatooine, and was a contemporary of nine-year-old Anakin Skywalker. A much younger Greedo the Eldero accused young Anakin of cheating during the Boonta Eve Classic on Tatooine, and Anakin set out to change Greedo's mind by beating him up. Qui-Gon Jinn, who had won Anakin's freedom from Watto, broke the fight up. He then explained to Anakin that fighting was never going to change Greedo's mind. Greedo the Elder later returned to his wife Neela on Rodia, and they had a small family together with the birth of a son, who was named Greedo after his father. Unfortunately, Greedo the Elder was killed in one of Navik the Red's many purges, and his family fled.

The Headhunter only has one pair...

Also, why the hell haven't we seen the Z-95 at all? it was a very good ship that was introduced while Anakin was on Tatooine and was still being used in the Galactic Civil War.

It's the poor man's X-Wing.

It's probably a variant of the Z-95 from Episode III, hell, it might even be a primitive version of the X-Wing, before it was fine-tuned.
We may not have seen the Z-95 much in Episode I or II was because it might have been more of an independant ship used by smugglers and pirates when it was released, and thus, wouldn't be used by the Republic. You know how official militaries are, they can only have one contractor and all ships have to look exactly the same.

You won't see the Z-95 in any of the movies because it's an EU ship. Stuff which appears in the books, comics, games etc are Expanded Universe (EU). They weren't created with Luca's ideas, so they're (almost) an alternative universe. By which I mean, they're considered part of the continuity, unless something in the movies cocks it up. Luca's word is law, and he doesn't pay much attention to the EU.

And that's not a Z-95. It's a predecessor to the X-wing, but not a Headhunter.

Does anyone else find it absolutely retarded that you have to pay to view the trailer at the official star wars website? Hellooo? This is an ADVERTISEMENT. It might be a cool advertisement, for people who are already fans of the series...but it's still a freaking ADVERTISEMENT. Why do they want me to pay for some freaking advertising?

How is Lucas ever going to make any new fans(or win back the disaffected) when he's making people pay to watch his commercials?

Didn't they show it on TV where you were, Fishy? (As part of a news broadcast, or some entertainment program...)

I figure if my local station displayed it, surely a wealthy mule farmer like yourself had a nearby TV station showing it at some point.

Oh, and I am in total agreement. Paying for 'Exclusive content' = bollocks.
Sad thing is, enough people actually pay to make it viable.
