No Spoiler (3, Interesting)

_Neurotic (39687) | more than 12 years ago | (#2573960)

No, it does not give away most fot he plot. If anything, the "Mystery" trailer released last week gives away more of the plot. This one, from a plot perspective, focuses on the romance, which we all know is happenning anyway.

I have been very carefull not to read spoilers online. I have watched all the trailers and I can safely say that I don't feel spoiled.

pomakis (323200) | more than 12 years ago | (#2574143)

Here's something I've been wondering for while. Like a lot of people, I've known for many years a lot of the details of the pre-Episode IV Star Wars history, such as the big Obi-wan/Anakin fight, etc. However, for the life of me I can't figure out how I came to know all this. It wasn't mentioned in any of the movies. I don't think it was in any of the books that I read. Yet it's been hard fact for me for as long as I can remember. Does anybody remember where they first heard or read about this?

Another thing I've always been curious about is the details of the clone wars. They've been alluded to since Episode IV, but until the Timothy Zahn books came out hardly anything was known about them. From the Episode II trailer that I saw, it looks like we're actually going to see the clone wars in action. That oughta be cool. As long as it doesn't involve a million clones of Jar-Jar (*shudder*)!

Shhh, don't tell anyone I told you so, but the twist is that Anakin and Amidala turn out to be brother and sister. I know it's been done, but George felt he hadn't explored the full Greek Tragedy aspects of it in 4-6. And besides, it explains a lot about Luke's strangely batrachian features and his own penchant for sister-groping.

Re:Quicktime Pro?! (1)

Flakeloaf (321975) | more than 12 years ago | (#2573983)

The trailer's on Apple's site. Apple owns QT, and they'll do anything they can to sell a copy (or at least encourage us to go find a stolen one that was bought & paid for). It's their way of compensating for not crippling the free version of QT.

Re:Quicktime Pro?! (1)

mjpaci (33725) | more than 12 years ago | (#2574059)

Large format = Greater filesize. Until there's free bandwidth for all, someone's got to pay for it. Do you think Akamai gives away bandwidth to Apple so you can get your jollies watching StarWars trailers?

Hell, to see the real full-screen one you have to buy a movie ticket each time you go to see it.

$29.99 is nothing. Besides you can then download the trailer and watch it to your heart's content.

*** SPOILER *** (3, Funny)

Krapangor (533950) | more than 12 years ago | (#2573996)

Hey, I'll give you the plot of the whole film.

Mainly Geogre Lucas will be making much money by recycling an old and braindead SCI-FI movie be creating new films on the topic which contain no decent storyline but much special effects and computer animated pictures. Because the ending of the last movie of the old ones had left no sensible possibility to create any sequels, Mr. Lucas will have the innovative and cunning idea of creating prequels.
And now the most important thing of the plot: many coloured things will expode (especially in vacuum with a loud "kaboom !). And some guys will jump around.

Re:*** SPOILER *** (1)

the_Bionic_lemming (446569) | more than 12 years ago | (#2574018)

You forgot More Animated Characters and 35 minutes of Bantha Farts as well.

Sigh - When I was a Kid and Star Wars Came out, it was cool because it was Sci-Fi and a great movie to boot.

Unfortunately , Lucas has taken that as a signal to just target children with the series in order to maximise toy sales and dumbed down the movie accordingly.

It's obvious - Why else would the only theater film premiere be in a Kids movie if it wasn't true?

Re:*** SPOILER *** (1)

trueimage (257163) | more than 12 years ago | (#2574087)

i feel the same, except that lucas had the scripts finished BEFORE the first "trilogy" came out, and decided to put out the ones he did because they were the best, good call by him.

Re:*** SPOILER *** (4, Funny)

Rogerborg (306625) | more than 12 years ago | (#2574088)

  • Mr. Lucas will have the innovative and cunning idea of creating prequels.

The really clever bit is the way he avoided carefully making any reference to anything that happens in the prequels when he made 4-6, so that the prequels appear to be non-canon and irrelevant at best, contradictory at worst. That was some forethought, George!

I'm taking bets that Jar Jar turns out to be Boba Fett. Then the rape of my childhood memories will be complete.

Crossover. It plays Quicktime, Shockwave, Ipix, Efax, and other win32 web browser plugins under Linux.

Works with Galeon, Moz, Netscape, and KDE 2.2.2 (currently in CVS).

Proprietary license, but most code is given right back to the Wine project. In fact, Codeweavers seems to be almost THE Wine project - founder Alexander Julliard and many other core Wine developers earn their living at Codeweavers. So they seem good for the community.

Download the demo or buy the real thing here [codeweavers.com] .

I own it, and its good (especially the recent 1.01 version). Yay trailers for movies that won't come out in Australia for ages, and banned Bjork film clips!

I particularly liked this bit:

Annie? Oh my, you've grown!

It reminded me of this part from the phantom menace script (the abridged version:)
INT. TATOOINE - SOME SHOP WHERE JAKE LLOYD IS HELD SLAVE
JAKE LLOYD
Hi there! Golly I'm cute.
NATALIE PORTMAN
You certainly are, little boy.

I'm the only one disturbed by the fact that I'm gonna bone you in episode two?
:)

Seriously though, can't these people _act_? The first half of this teaser is crap!

Sigh...

Does anybody else get the feeling that this is turning out to be the Star Wars adaptation of Jane Austen, starring Wesley Crusher as Annakin :(

Why is everyone complaining about the smooshie stuff in this trailer, did you not see the Mystry trailer?

I watched the trailer (1)

I'll say this. This guy playing Anakin might have a little more promise than the whiny little mall rat playing Padme. Carrie Fisher only got halfway decent lines in the very first film, but she put more into them. She didn't give you the impression you were watching a cheezy gen X tv show on UPN.

Episode 2 is looking good, lots of conflict (1)

This may not fit in with the cynical view most Slashdot posts have, but I think Episode 2 is looking good, especially in the trailer above (the new trailer was mediocre)

It looks like Episode 2 will have a lot of conflict in it, and conflict is what makes stories interesting. Anakin's conflict with the Jedi Knights, the conflict him and the Princess must feel over whether they should follow their love, and of course lots of good old fashioned battle conflict.

Also, who can resist a good old fashioned love story? The love elements in episodes 4-6 was always weak, this looks like it's really solid.
