Question: How long is there between Episodes II and III? There were ten years between I and II, and around 20 between III and IV, but the entire Clone Wars saga happens between II and III, so how long was between them?
Question: If Luke Skywalker's identity is to be kept secret, why is he left on Anakin Skywalker's home planet with people Anakin knew and is distantly related to, and with Anakin's surname, which is not the same as Owen and Beru, the couple who take Luke in? Wouldn't it be possible, however remote, that Vader (Anakin) might figure out his son is alive? Is this ever explained?
Question: In this film, two Jedi show they have the power to block Force Lightning: Mace Windu does it using his lightsaber, and Yoda does it unarmed. Given this, is there any reason why Yoda would not have taught this to Luke in Episode 6, especially since - having fought him - he would know that Palpatine had that power? Even if Luke wasn't as powerful as Yoda, he still could have done the Mace Windu version since he had his lightsaber with him.Moose
Question: I have heard that in ROTK Extended, there will be a scene with Ghan-buri-Ghan, chief of the Woses, helping the Riders Of Rohan reach Pelennor through the Druadan Forest - as noted in the book. I have also heard that Ghan will be played by New Zealand entertainer Wi Kuki Kaa - who also had a small part in the Worzel Gummidge Down Under TV special. Is any of this true?
Question: This is regarding the scene where Xander is telling Shaver he wants "All of that, in here" referring to a vast array of weapons to go into the GTO. Where/How in the world did Xander gain access to "all of that"?
Question: What is that gun thing that is pushed into the guy's neck after he says "I thought this was a currency exchange?" Is the guy dead or just knocked out?
Question: Is Padme's line "This is how democracy dies" or "This is how liberty dies"? I've seen both in news reports and on Google. I saw the movie on the 27th of May and it was definitely liberty, but my friends say that on opening night, it was democracy. The scripts I've found online say liberty, but some news articles say democracy.
Question: Do the names Sati, Rama-Kandra, and Kamala have special significance in Hindu culture or meanings in Hindi?
Question: In Return Of The Jedi when Ben is discussing with Luke about Leia being his sister, Ben says, "When your father left, he didn't know your mother was pregnant. Your mother and I knew he would find out eventually, but we wanted to keep you both as safe as possible, for as long as possible." This doesn't match up with what happens in Episode III because Vader knew that Padme was pregnant, just not with twins, and Ben and Padme had no time to discuss how to keep them safe. I ask this as a question rather than a mistake in case I am missing something.
Question: I listened to the scene where Harry goes to visit Ron and Hermione at the end after he gets out of the hospital wing. Ron and Hermione apparently have a conversation that's not appropriate for a PG rated movie, and I turned it up as loud as I could, and I heard Ron say something like, "I have this black shirt." Can anyone tell me what he really is saying?leyesalot82789
Question: What exactly is the difference between the former US hockey style and the 'hybrid Soviet/Canadian' style that Brooks implements? What is different about how they actually play the game. All Brooks ever says in the film itself is some vague stuff about flow, creativity, and keeping options open. The special features expand on this a bit: circling within positions and being ready to come out of your position if an opportunity presents itself. Is this it, or was there more to it?
Question: Strange question, but I was wondering why the soldiers were using what looks like a Vietnam-era M60 machine gun. Wouldn't they be using the newer version of the gun the M60E3 (which looks different than an old M60 - most notably the fore grip), which was reportedly lighter and easier to use? Also, the M249 SAW (FN Minimi) is carried by a few soldiers and I've been told that this much-more-reliable gun replaced the older weapon entirely.
Question: I know that an regular alien comes from a face-hugger, but how do they make a queen alien?
