It's possible... I really think they're building her up as something that adds to his ultimate demise to Vader.
On the animation point with Obi's hair... If I'm not mistaken, the characters are to be puppet-like in their styling, so they're not really to "move with the wind" and things. That's where the references to the old Thunderbirds show have come in when the movie was compared to various other shows. IE: it's intentional, not just poor quality.
I believe the stylized details were brought up in some of the videos about CW on SW.com, maybe elsewhere too. I have a hard time believing LFL's CG work was just crappy, considering their CG work is never crappy in anything else it's in. And yes, that includes the prequals.
That's a good point Jesse. I've seen a number of comments in reviews about the animation not being too great (with the characters in particular), and I guess it didn't bother me because that's what I expected as well. They've mentioned numerous times that its inspired by Thunderbirds and again has the "old timey" feel to it, like Lucas likes to tie into his properties (Flash Gordon, Saturday serials, etc.)
I'm kind of surprised at how poorly it did at the box office. Granted, they probably weren't expecting anything huge (or needed it), but I guess I still expected "Star Wars" to pull in about double what it did. I realize its not live action, and that makes a big difference, but is the general public just tired of Star Wars now? Is it because it is animated? I've seen some people mention that it wasn't heavily marketed, which might be true, but I can say that I've seen commercials for it at least 4 times a day for the past couple weeks. Anyways, just a little surprised how poorly it did at the box office, I expected a little more. Not over $100 or anything, but like I said, at least double the $15 it did.
Like I mentioned earlier, and other people have said, I enjoyed it and appreciate the aspect that this generation's kids will probably love this. The kids in the theatre I was in seemed pretty pumped about it. Definitely looking forward to seeing this on a weekly basis though, and seeing more of the Jedi/Clones/etc. in the spotlight. I'll probably see the movie once more, as my nephews want me to take them to it.
