Meta: Padmé’s Prayer

The Star Wars Prequel Trilogy Facebook page linked to an interesting meta by Becca at Coffee With Kenobi on how a scene in ROTS hit home for her.

    I’m always conscious of how “Padme in Revenge of the Sith” brought down some of the best of us (just as I’ve encountered more recently a few people who told me they “weren’t offended” by The Phantom Menace but fell away from Star Wars over the next two movies for less specific reasons), and while I can argue to myself that her fate adds to the development of “the redemption theme” and the story as a whole, it’s always good to see another take on the subject.

    My response, posted on the site: Finally – someone is able to explain the death of Padmé that would (I hope) be accepted by all those who complain that losing the will to live doesn’t work….oh, yes, it does. And all you need to know is what you wrote here – she was already b-r-o-k-e-n and knew this was an all or nothing – and final – rendezvous with Anakin. Shatterpoint, indeed. Nice citation of Mace and Matt Stover.

    Whoever runs the official Star Wars twitter account knows how to show respect for the prequels. Here’s their latest tweet:

      Sorry, I don’t get it.

      • Eduardo Jencarelli Says:

        The caption. It puts aside the pointless debate as to who shot first on the Mos Eisley Cantina.

        Actually, I should have said respect for Lucas’ decisions, rather than the prequels themselves. This tweet was about putting some petty fanboy squabbles aside.

    I always liked those scenes, they showed it right. Some people think a strong female character cant have emotions, cant cry when all they cared for, all they loved is torn away from them, I beg to differ I think it takes more strength to admit that she was sad, she was broken. I always liked the ways she went out (though mabey LIKE is the wrong word) it was symbolic it is fitting that she would die with her beloved republic, with Anakin in a sense. And realy the galaxy turned out better for it, Vader would have hunted her to the end of the galaxy and back, if she lived her twins would never be safe.
