    Having seen the entire run of New Tricks, I would kill for Lawson to bring McAndrew's sass.

    Two questions I feel like an idiot for asking. It is about Episode II, Attack of the Clones (Prequels)

    1) What was Jango Fett's motive for trying to kill Obi Wan on Kamino? During their conversation it seemed like they were on good terms.

    2) What made him want to go to Geonosis?

    I haven't seen it in a long while, but unless my timeline is wrong, Jango already knows who Obi-Wan is due to the assassination sub-plot on Coruscant. He knows Obi-Wan isn't there to claim the Clone Army, and that Obi-Wan is there following Jango's trail.

    Regarding the second question, do you mean Jango? Probably just on retainer for the Confederacy's lieutenants. But also, I believe it's mentioned at one point that the Trade Federation won't join until Amidala is dead, which was Jango's job.

    TIL that the opening crawl of the original movie, "In a galaxy far far away," was actually two foot high letters cut from gold colored paper and laid out on black sheets, then shot from a rolling camera. A testament to how technology has changed over the span of the "Star Wars phenomena."

    I don't think they were on the hull of a star destroyer. Can't say where they were particularly, but they weren't there.

    Actually, the number has already (I can finally say this) gone up to eleven.

    I think the 2nd screenshot below shows pretty clearly that they are on some sort of ship. Considering they are surrounded by star destroyers I think it's a safe bet that is the ship that they are on.

    Ah, I was counting the films already released: the eight numbered ones (well, seven numbered ones plus the original), Rogue One, Solo, and the animated Clone Wars one.

    Well, one possible answer is "Gadzooks! Good catch! That stop action is really hard to dispute so they might actually be that stupid." It should be noted that this seems a very reasonable answer because I've never really sold short on how stupid they could be.

    But maybe they are on some sort of base structure thing being attacked by the star destroyers?

    It does look like the hull of a Star Destroyer.

    I dont know what to make of this trailer. Everything looks very pretty, but that's not necessarily reassuring that the movie will be any good.

    I'm tempted to look at the spoilers but I want to at least give the movie a fair shot when I go see it in two months. :lol: As fair a shot I can really give it, I guess.

    Thus far I haven't read any of the leaks, although I know one of them involves Kylo Ren in some capacity. I also know that the expected public response will be "worse than the response to TLJ and the latest season of GoT," which isn't encouraging.
