The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII
« Last post by JediJman on April 18, 2014, 01:16 AM »
Obi-Wan having a family or children is an interesting prospect.  Some of the EU had him close with another padawan.  And we also saw the storyline between him and Satine in Clone Wars.  So there's some potential backstory there to show that Obi-Wan may have strayed from the monastic life of the Jedi. 

Another angle?  Obi-Wan was witness to Order 66, and knew that the Empire was hunting down the Jedi.  He was also aware of Anakin and Padme's relationship and that their children could be that potential new hope for the Jedi, or perhaps a new apprentice for the Sith.  With that in mind Obi-Wan may have wanted to make sure that a Force sensitive child might carry on his own legacy.

So if Obi-Wan does have a kid and she is force sensitive, what's with the dialogue between Obi and Yoda in Empire basically stating Luke or another (Leia) are their only hope?  I'd think mini-Obi might have factored into that conversation.  I just don't see the need to tread down that pre-original-trilogy path.

Eh, with this thing, anything is possible...  I don't think it's what they think it is, but whatever...  The stories about this are really lame though.  "Hey, I think that round thing may be a new ship!  Or just a thing, that sits there, in the background...  and stuff".

It's kind of funny.

Just read it Jesse, thanks for pointing it out.  That tent seems awful small to film what they are saying, but who knows.  Knowing all the secrecy around this film, you don't think they would actually set up a fake location just to draw attention away from actual location shoots do you?

I picked up 8 of the 16 new minifigs tonight at Walmart. I probably could have gotten more but 20 minutes of fondling was enough for me.  :-X

I only guessed wrong on one as it turns out, thought I had Mr Burns but somehow ended up with Maggie. Maybe I just picked up the wrong bag, I had like 3 different piles going...(need, don't need, can't tell) It felt a little creepy but what the hell, better than ending up with a bunch of dupes.

Anyway, these are freaking awesome and I definitely plan on going back when I have more time and picking up the rest tomorrow. Even better, they all rang up at $2.97 because of some kind of discount due to an ad discrepancy on another Lego item.

Anyone see the Yahoo story with the set pieces? 

I like all the mass hysteria surrounding it, which could be pretty much anything but its shape has people assuming one thing in particular. :)  Craziness.

Most of Obi-Wan's life is unaccounted for. The only reason for them to introduce a character like this is to explain where they came from, which suggests (if any of this is true) we'll see Ewan McGregor again as Obi-Wan, likely in a stand alone movie set in the gap between ROTS and ANH. I'd be all for that. I'm also all for an Obi-Wan who is not a cardboard cut-out of himself as we've discussed I think here before. If he had a child, or grandchildren, I don't think that diminishes him in any way. It may compound the tragedy of Obi-Wan Kenobi - does he forego what we can only speculate would have been a chance at a normal life, to adhere to his vows, to his duty to Luke? Does he even know about any offspring? I guess we'll find out. If any of it is true.

I hope you had a good time here man...  How far was the drive?

If I'd known you were coming I'd have tried to meet up with you...  Or at least pointed you to some good places to go eat and try while you're here.  That's 50% of any trip for me is getting to try unique places from where I live, haha.

The PA group did a big meeting Friday, since that seems to work for everyone for the most part.  Lots of people, which was fun.

It was a great show...  Brent Spiner was out shopping just roaming the crowd and was behind us and kind of nodded our way since we were clearly noticing who he was, haha.  Seems like a nice guy.  I missed the ST Q&A too, and wish I hadn't. :(  I couldn't be there for it till it was over.

I hope you had a good time man, it's always fun knowing people are coming in from all over for the show.

Definitely one of the best characters IMO.

Who doesn't have a lot of friends in King's Landing...

Whose patron was just accused of poisoning the king...

That's what I was thinking, though he doesn't have a ton of enemies either...  He's just there.  Tyrion getting arrested doesn't help him though, for sure.  :-\

With Tyrion arrested who will pay poor Bronn?
