Padme as stormtrooper!!!
« on: June 19, 2003, 11:06 AM »
Here's an image taken at Gentle Giant Studios of Natalie Portman donning a stormtrooper helmet for Episode III during a scene when she escapes to Alderaan:



Clearly this is some sort of pre-production work for a digital stunt double, but isn't it exciting that Luke's mom dressed as a stormie long before he did? Gotta love that recurring theme thing George insists on. I'm so giddy with anticipation!

"Aren't you ridiculously short for a stormtrooper?" ;D

Are you joking about this?  That is interesting if true.  LOL!  Yes, very short for a stormtrooper.

You're full of it John!  But funny though.  Nicest bod I've ever seen on a Stormtrooper, that's for sure!  The Empire would've been better off if they cloned that!   8)

It would be pretty cool if she was also pregnant and in the Stormtrooper disguise.  Pregnant stormtrooper armor.  Yeah, that would be sweet :)

Yeah, "Aren't you a little pregnant to be a stormtrooper?"

You guys need to go along with me or we'll NEVER be the source of such a ridiculous rumor.  ::)

Maybe Luke doesn't know it but he actually kills dear old mom in the Death Star Hanger in ANH after Dad axes Obi-Wan

...and serving blue milk in the kitchen. This might answer the question, "Who 'kills' Anakin?"

INT  - Tattooine Homestead - The Skywalker doublewide

Anakin returns home from a long day of Clone Warsing.

ANAKIN: (To Padme) Go fix me some scurrier pot pie, bitch!

BLAM! (PADME shoots ANAKIN in the back of the head.)

PADME: Screw this shack. I'm takin' that Senator feller up on his offer to go to Alderaan. Threepio? Artoo? Pack up the kids' stuff. We's takin' a trip.

Hmmmm, I should get to work on a custom pregnant Padme stormtrooper.  Actually my custom skills from 0-10 are about a 1.  OCB did a really good job with ICMG.  Maybe he is up to that challenge :)
