Shot of downed Imperial Cruiser? Niiiiice. Mark Hamill voice over? Sweet. Trashed Vader Helmet? Cool. Look of new Sith? Gold.
HAN F-ing SOLO!!!!!!
I was always more of a Star Trek than Star Wars fan, but seriously, Han Solo. He was one of my very first crushes and he still is hot to me.
And truthfully, as bad as the prequels were, The Clone Wars TV series had some great stories and characters in it, far, far better than the prequel films. (It takes place between the second and third prequel films. You actually get to see Anakin as a likable character!) It’s really is worth the watch.
Actually after watching The Clone Wars and then going back and watching Revenge of the Sith, the TV show actually gives the film emotional resonance because you get to know all the Clones as good guys and you get to know all the Jedi that are shown being killed. The problem is that from the Classic Star Wars films, we have “Stormtroopers are bad guys” ingrained into our heads. After watching Clone Wars, that “Order 66” scene becomes much more shocking and tragic.
And I am hoping that these films will answer one of the biggest fan questions: What happened to Ahsoka Tano?
BTW- Interesting hypothesis: Some have wondered if Han’s fabled “luck” is actually that he is Force-sensitive and that he is mildly, subconsciously, wielding the Force.
