Here it is, another edition of Ask SWPAS!
What is the airspeed velocity of an unlaiden Toydarian?
Okay, the actual question is: which SW film has your favorite soundtrack (and if it’s not I-III, which is your favorite of those).
Mine’s Phantom. I can hear the gasps of shock.
Favorite soundtrack? That’s a tough one. I love all of them, they’re all great. I’d have to say ANH or AOTC might have a teensy tiny bit more listening value for me.
WHAT do you think would have been the fate of Eeth Koth had TCW continued? Also do you think they would have retconed Oppo Rancisis’s fate, there was no hint at other “dark jedi” in the series?
I have no idea if Eeth Koth’s fate would ever be addressed on the show. They would certainly have felt free to deviate from the expanded universe had the show continued.
Why did Barriss betrayed Ahsoka? Or to be more specific why would she go as far as frame Ahsoka?
I could understand why she would betray the Jedi Order but I never understood her motivation in backstabbing Ahsoka. Because by framing Ahsoka Barriss was still allowed being a Jedi yet she hates what the Jedi Order became.
Was Barriss trying to motivate Ahsoka to leave? Maybe she was trying to show Ahsoka how the order changed for the worse(I mean the order pretty much handed her to the Republic in a silver platter just to protect their image).
I also heard from Filoni that she and Barriss still had unfinished business in the supposed cancelled season 7.
Anyway what are your thoughts on that?
It was really surprising to see Barriss Offee turn on the Jedi and on her friend like that. She’d been portrayed as a good Jedi in the expanded universe, in fanon, and of course earlier on the show. Dave Filoni’s very big on how the war and the Dark Side have corrupted the Jedi and Barriss’s turn seems to reflect that view. (Though if it was me, I would have been a tad bit more judicious about turning Jedi. Dooku’s turn was shocking and surprising to the Jedi and Anakin’s turn is supposed to be even more so. It sort of dilutes the power of their betrayal when so many other Jedi are turning too, but it’s not my call.)
Unfortunately we may never know all of Barriss’s motives. Obviously they were going to address her story somewhere down the line and give more answers, but the plug got pulled.
In one of the early drafts of Episode I, Anakin was a little older than he ended up being in the final film and had the type of personality that portrayed a ‘older than his years’ type vibe, and because of his age the romance between Anakin & Padme was begun a little earlier, in the sense that you got the feeling he really liked her, rather than it being portrayed as more of the childlike infatuation that it was in the final film. The movie overall also had a darker vibe to it as well. (you got to see the invasion of naboo, a lot more as well etc)
I think it’s obvious Lucas changed Anakin into a younger character in the final movie because he wanted to make a movie for his young son, at the time, Jett Lucas, but do you think this was the best choice for the trilogy as a whole, and if so, what are your reasons?
I’m fine with Anakin as a nine/ten-year-old in the film. He wasn’t really psychologically ready to leave his mother because he was still a little boy and that separation from her is what screws him up for life. He was too young to appreciate what she was sacrificing for him, and he leaves his mother’s love for a bunch of strangers who preach no attachments and who obviously don’t trust him.
That Lucas might have also wanted to appeal to kids isn’t a big deal to me. Star Wars was always for the kids.
