Star Words AOTC Part 3

Martil posted the third part of her look at AOTC:

Anakin probably wants to crawl into a hole in the ground and never come out. So much for proving his maturity. Looks like he has always been and always will be a child in Padmé’s eyes. No wonder he’s so insistent afterwards on pledging to track down the assassin, against all his master’s disapproval — he’s desperate to win Padmé’s favor to make up for such a wrong-footed introduction. Alas, Obi-Wan’s chastisement only humiliates him further.

By the way, there is so much secondhand embarrassment in this scene, illustrated by way of cleverly-timed cuts to the onlookers’ faces. Typho, Dormé, Obi-Wan, even Jar Jar — they all notice it, and there is much hiding of smiles and darting of eyes. I love how editing can tell a story without a word of dialogue.

    Off-topic, can’t say that I’m surprised with Lucasfilm’s choice for the Han Solo movie title. They had to use “A Star Wars Story” logo somehow.

    With a release date set (May 25th), they have no more than six months to finish post-production. Way too short a window for a Star Wars entry. This will be an interesting marathon.
