How will us and the main charactors know what R2 is saying if 3PO isn't going to around R2 during Episode 1? Thats the only way we knew what he was saying in the original trilogy. (Source: Steve)

hi..I just wants to ask about the durations of the prequel..how long is the duration..? is it only like 2 hours or more..I think it should be more than 2 hours only for all the preparations that has taken shape...thanks... (Source: Joseph -- The Sabervader)

There has been talk of a sneek peek vehicle/figure set from Hasbro It is rumored to be called "STAP with battle droid" We've heard the rumors about battle droids riding hover sleds. Perhaps thats what the STAP'S are. STAP is perhaps an acronym, like ATAT and ATST . If you look at the picture on the STAP with battle droid concept packaging, (picture attatched as a .jpg file), we see a battle droid, riding one of those hover sleds, and in the background, we see the roots of a giant tree, and what appears to be swamp like surroundings. Could STAP be = Swamp Terrain Airborne Platform? or perhaps Swamp Terrain Armed Platform could it be Swamp Terrain Armed Patrol ? another idea is Surface Transport Armed Platform STA could read Surface to Air too, though highly unlikely These are just a few guesses. I wish some readers would make their own guesses and we could crack this acronym before the toy is released. (Source: Krish)

Ep 3 title: 'Birth of the Rebellion' ????? If Goerge Lucas was scouting the Australian coast for offshore locations. Is it possible these locations may be used in episode 2 for scenes involving the waterworld of Mon Calamari??? Very little has been said about Governor/Grand Moff Tarkin by starwars.com, I wonder if they're misleading us all!!!!! After all, (Governor) Tarkin would be an available character for the time period covered by episode 1, we do not yet know whether his character has any significance to the main plot.

Amazing DSPR! Naboo is definetely going to be an actual location in the prequels (check out www.mosespa.com). It does concern me that Padme will probably be from Naboo and we won't get to see Alderaan, which is a real shame. (Source: Greig Walker: http://website.lineone.net/~greig.walker/)

Something occured to me as I was watching the end of Jedi the other day.Darth Vaders hand is cut off.....then he picks up the Emperor seemingly with both hands and throws him into the reactor.......I doubt seriously that this has any significance but I was wondering if anyone else noticed his great ability to maneuver his stub to accomplish such great feats........its funny isnt it.R5-Wars Ch.3 will be there soon!

My Name is Nathaniel. I have a wav sound here (zipped) that is from Return Of The Jedi. I want to know if this music is sold somewhere on CD, or if there is some way I could get this music on CD. It is a great song, and I am surprised they didn't include it on the ROTJ Special Edition SoundTrack. The song is the one that big blue guy plays inside Jabba's palace right near the time that Chewie is imprisoned. What would really be great would be if this music was released as a single on a CD. I would definetly buy it. Please let me know what you know. By the way, was this particular song written by John Williams also? (Source: Nathan)

I was reading your interview with Lucas and it brought to mind a little delima I will be facing in 241 days. I live just north of the Baltimore area and have a theatre that is a favorite of mine. It is the Senator located on York Rd. This thing is just great, it is just full of Baltimore history, it has a huge screen and was never turned into a Multiplex. It also isn't a crappy theatre either, it has 6 track dolby digital (I think that is what it is) and they hold all the premiers here. Before all the movies they play short subjects. Remember that short film that came out for Empire? They had the flying toasters, Lei had cinnimon buns on the side of her head and Luke was stoned? They played that before they played Star Wars Special Addition. I don't remember ever going there and not seeing a short subject. Anyways up untill 2 months ago I would never have dreamed of seeing Ep. 1 anywhere else. But recently I went to see Private Ryan at a brand new theatre in Baltimore. This place has 6 screens, at least one of witch is certified THX, and the screen is huge. I really think the screen was bigger than at the Senator. And the sound system. Holy shit, I have never heard a sound system of any kind in any kind of setting that was better than this. Maybe it is testimony to how well done the sound was for Private Ryan, but the sound here blows away anything anywhere period. Now I think my delima is pretty obvious. The traditionalist in me refuses to want to see Ep 1 anywhere else than the Senator. But that new theatre makes a pretty good argument. I fully intend to buy my tickets in advance, and intend to take a vacation day for Ep 1. It really isn't beyond me to go see the movie twice that day. But I still got to see it somewhere the first time. So which place would you see it? Which place do you think George would want me to see it in?241 days to go. (Source: Adam C)

I just subscribed to the news letter and I think it's great. But I was also wondering if you could answere a few questions for me also... I am trying to design and build the Royal Imperial Guard's uniform and I was wondering if you could give me some detailes on them like: Their hight, streangth, and most importantly the weopon they carry (Size,Shape,and What it is)because I have no descent picures that show it. I am not sparing any expense in the construction and I am trying to get it as detailed as possible. ` Also, if you know of any web sites that may describe them in more detail, or have any pictures to send, or know of any books that might show them, it would be great if you could send this information.

The old rumor of Obi-Wan knocking Vader into a (when I first read it)volcano, now lava/lava pit dates much further back than the ROTJ novel as you stated. At the very least to 1978-9,( prior to Empire's release, the article is supposition on Star Wars 2) where I read about it in a magazine. If I can find it, I'll send the exact info. (Source: Steph')

I was just wondering...Is George planning on including and more Storm Troopers bumping into things? That really made the original SW movies memorable for me. (Source: Mike)

You met the Emperor the other day. Y' know, at ILM, just down the hall. Don't deny it. I saw you. He pulled you close, and said, "Put Episode one pictures on your site, my friend, and your journey to the Dark Side will be complete!" Yub yub!!

So there won't be stormtroopers in the prequels? Ewoks!!! I was hoping to see Aquatic stormtroopers in the highly anticipated water battle. In the original trilogy, I liked how they wore a variant suit with a cool visor in the forest of Endor.

I heard that in the third trailer of Ep. 1, there will be a shot of the Jedi Knights fighting a surprise enemy. Intriguing!!!! Let's see what they could be. A row of twelve, angry chained Rancors, being led by a laughing ewok??? A legion of c3po's, elbowing each other trying to get in battle formation, saying to each other " It's all your fault!!!" ??? Maybe a slew of sarlacc creatures, drinking pepsi, and throwing the cans at the Knights, who slash them in two, only for Yoda to pull their ears, and say " If real Jedi you were, eight pieces would lay at feet!" ???

Enough nonsense. Random comments: That " mysterious-ship-in-the-scaffolding" photo is awesome. So is the old man weilding a violet lightsaber....Is Supershadow fearless? Well, that's what I thought before I put a R5-D4 action figure in his lunchbox...I want that asteroid monster puppet seen in ESB. I'll give Kermit a fright with that thing....The Millenium Falcon has to be in the prequels. It is the greatest freighter in the galaxy, and deserves a "solid-as-Han-in-carbonite" history...help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope...Star Trek is good. It ain't Star Wars, but it's good. It's very good. Nothing wrong with liking both. Can't compare the two, it's like comparing Ewoks with Jawas...I know alot of fans disagree! Uh-oh! Shields! Shields!!!....I am out of here! Dark Side Prequels rocks like asteroids around Tie Fighters! Yub Yub!! ( Source: Wigs the Ewok.)

Okay you guys. I'm sure you're being flooded with e-mail today. But you've GOT to post something over at the main site. Or send out a mass e-mail. Is this Phantom Menace stuff for real????? What's the buzz over there are Lucasfilm? I rely on you guys for the STRAIGHT scoop. So chop chop. (Source: Sean R)

It's obvious that "The Phantom Menace" is definitely not the real title of episode I for three reasons: 1) StarWars.com has not updated their episode I site with the title, like the other three movies' sites. 2) In your supposed interview with George Lucas, he said we would not know the title of the movie even when the trailer comes out. 3) It's a really stupid title! especially for a Star Wars movie. Why would they give such a great movie such a stupid name?just my comments.-(Source: Space Dragon)

--The Menace Phantom!! *S* (Source: pat pdh)

I heard an interesting rumor from a fairly reliable source. Apparrently, in ANH, when jawas and Owen and Beru are murdered by imperials, Ben did the whole thing. He was trying to get Luke to leave the planet and save Leia with him, and this was the only way to do it. It would appear that old, gentle Ben was far from being a noble jedi! (Source: JediForce)

Hi, love your site completely, and I check back every day, but I only have one complaint: The Star of Alderaan symbol on the main page.I have too many reasons behind this complaint to list her, but I will list 1 or 2. #1: The ewoks were a primitive stone age race. #2: Why would the empire build a critical installation on a moon where they knew there were hostile inhabitants? and why wouldn't the rebels not ask for their help while still planning the attack instead of while everything was planned already? This signifiesto me that no one actually knew the Ewoks existed before ROTJ, and if they had been on the senate or jedis, then people would certainly have known about their hostility towards the empire. How did the ewoks get through the stormtrooper armor with spears and arrows? Oh, well. Great site anyways, keep it up. (Source: Thrawn)

If you want to know what the crux of the Star Wars saga is then read on...Palpatine made an agreement with Vader/Anakin. If he had a son then he (Anakin) had to join Palpatine, but if he had a daughter he didn't have to join but his daughter would have to be handed over. Palpatine could see the future and knew that there would be twins - hence would win both ways. That is, he would get the daughter, Vader and eventually Luke (assuming he would be turned to the dark side). Vader had no choice but to comply, only that if he had a son he (Luke) would be free to live on any planet without interference from the Empire. However, Vader wasn't aware there was a daughter and Ben took her away. Luke had to keep his name to ward off the Empire. Leia was hidden and Palpatine allowed this for he foresaw that Vader would not keep his agreement and would feel tricked if he discovered he had a daughter too. This is why he felt so loyal to Luke at the end of ROTJ because he realised that Palpatine had used him and his family. (Source: The Falcon)

Do you remember back a while ago when you did that little piece about the origins of names in the SW Trilogy? Well I have developed a little theory of my own, involving the planets Hoth and Yavin, and their possible connection with one of the greatest albums of the 70's. I think that GL originally envisioned the ice world to be called Yavin, and the Rebel Base in ANH to be called Hoth. Isn't Yavin the home of the Massassi Temple and all of the religious activities? Well if you take the first letters from Led Zeppelin's Houses Of The Holy (get it? cuz they are holy!), and put them together you get HOTH. This could be because of the fact that Zeppelin liked to make references to JRR Tolkien works, also a source of inspiration to George Lucas. Then I think George decided that if he switched the names, it would sound a lot better. And that was my stupid theory of the day. (Source: Boba Fann)

I think that the new title is alright but is not the typicaltitile we all were thinking. The main problem with the title is the word Menace, if this is ion regards to the Sith Lords mainly Maul I think the title should be the Phantom Sith. I believe Mr. Lucaas will change one word or add another as in the case of Revenge of the Jedi. This title could also be completly fake. Mr. Lucas changed the name of Jedi after the posters were already made. Anything is possible. You guys know so much what movie is the trailer going to be at and will there be any live action scenes or only cgi. Awsome site. (Source: Rob)

Is Liam Nessons name Qui-Gon Jinn offically. I think that if Mr. Lucas changes the name just for the sake of keeping it secret I think that this is one of the coolest names ever. If you have any pull make him keep it the same. You guys kick some serious a$$. (Source: Duncan)
