The lightsaber was the only lame part about this trailer...my real concern with what we've seen so far is that the villain could just be another stock character...like if someone said "Episode 7 and there's a member of the Sith who..." it would be exactly what I'd have expected. Basically, I'm just worried that it will be some dull looking villain similar in look to that in Star Trek Nemesis and the Star Trek reboot.

Otherwise, I know the franchise is in good hands. It'll be a cakewalk for this to exceed the prequels and almost a given that it's better than Return of the Jedi.

So if you didn't see it on screen, it didn't happen?

You aren't ever shown Obi Wan taking a shit either.

So I guess that's also a "plot hole" according to fans like you.

Or you can just assume, using common sense, that Obi Wan does occasionally take a shit. And that he would have looked into the actual family of his (more or less) 'adopted son' at some point.

George Lucas and other creative people are not going to spoonfeed everything to the non-creative portion of their fanbases that need to be spoonfed every last thing. I'm glad to stick up for George and all writers of fiction on this ground. Give me a break.

Or maybe Anakin happened to mention it during the YEARS they spent together as master and padawan during the Clone Wars.

Fair point. I'm not a believer in having to see everything on the screen, but it's kind of an important plot point given that we all figured Episode 3 was going to end that way.

It's funny that Anakin falling into the lava while fighting Obi-Wan was really the one part of the prequels he absolutely had to include (or hell, he could have said screw it to earlier canon and had a different way for that to happen)...yet he made three films to pretty much focus on that one damn character. I think everyone not under the age of 12 thinks he should've done some original story with Anakin being a minor role (or a major part of the final film).

Did you seriously just advocate for Anakin Skywalker having minor role in the Star Wars prequels?

This guy becomes Darth Vader, arguably the main antagonist for the entire original trilogy, and you think the prequels just shouldn't have bothered explaining that in any kind of depth?

Maybe I'm not understanding you completely here but what you're suggesting makes less than zero sense to me. If Anakin was going to be a minor character, what the hell else would the prequels have been about exactly?

I advocate a re-cast for Anakin, all ages.

I hated the story of Anakin the way it was written, and the actor who played him was absolutely brutal, but I think overall there's no way he could have been anything but the main focus of the prequels. In general the story was ok but the acting and dialogue from the character on a line to line scale was atrocious.

Collectively, the prequels concerned the rise and fall of Anakin Skywalker. That's the draw and it's not as if there was much else in those films that deserved greater screen time than Anakin's character arc. I think the right idea is there, just truly awful execution. Christensen is Keanu-in-Dracula levels of terrible. In fact, his casting is even more irresponsible.

I honestly haven't got the slightest clue how he got that part in the first place. He hasn't been any better in anything else I've seen (admittedly only clips, but it's very stiff acting in general).

I've seen him in a couple of other things. He's awful. I don't get it either.
