Re: Bring back Vader
Most of the film's profits have been eaten up by the insurance payments to Harrison Ford... :-)

Don't put an old guy in a young movie, unless he's Alec Guiness

Re: Bring back Vader
@SaneIT- Ha! I doubt that most Jedi assumed balance meant nearly an equal number of Jedi. :)

But one thing I've always hated about the Jedi other than old Obi Wan in episode IV is that they are all so darn smug. They always feel like they know exactly what is right. It was almost enjoyable to watch them get slaughtered.

Re: Bring back Vader
Unless they are Mandalorians then I'm not so sure I'm going to buy a band of 3 Jedi hunters.  It's kind of funny to look at the series from the point of view that the light side was far more prevalent than the dark side so killing off all of the Jedi would be required to bring balance.  It makes you wonder if they ever had that conversation in the Jedi order.  "There can only be two Sith, a master and an apprentice, so how many Jedi do we have?"

Re: Bring back Vader
@SaneIT- Yup. When the prequels were announced I was in grad school for creative writing, and I told everyone who would listen that they were a bad idea. It puts you in a bad storytelling space. Either you are telling people things they already know or you are makign stuff up that never happened before. There were really good reasons why George decided to "start int he middle" with Episode IV to begin with. He should have stuck to the reasons.

Star wars prophecy
Hmm, What I want them to cover? for star trek we have this whole balance of the force prophecy thing going on. i want to see something where we go back to when that prophecy was made, because I really want to figure out how they messed up the interpretation of that.

I also love the idea of star fleet academy, because you can have brilliant people making really dumb decisions and it makes sense because their brains aren't fully formed.

Re: Bring back Vader
@SaneIT- Wow, i just geeked right along with you there. That's awesome. And it is brought up that Anakin is supposed to bring balance to the force. Having the Sith die isn't balance. That is simply bringing the Dark Side to an end. 

I could totally see a dead Anakin working some sort of balancing act work in some way. 

By the way, since this was published the rumor going around is that the bad guys are a group of three "Jedi Hunters." I'm unimmpressed by the idea of Jedi Hunters since clearly they don't have the Force like a Jedi. We've seen no regular people (except maybe Han) who can can stand up at all to even a a Regular Joe jedi, much less be difficult for a Master to fight. I fear they will simply stand around looking menacing for quite a while until being beaten.
