Palpy's mural........SW.com's Easter Egg article
« on: May 27, 2005, 11:20 PM »
major speculation here....

From the SW.com easter eggs article:

http://www.starwars.com/episode-iii/bts/production/f20050526/indexp2.html

go to the 2nd to last pic/caption on the right side of the page....the one about aurra sing  and palpy's mural.   read the caption...click the pic.
then come back and read the rest of this post.  



First...before we can speculate anything we must decide IF the creature in that mural is a dewback or not.  I think so, a stylized version of a dewback, but dewback nonetheless.  

Second...if it's not a dewback...we shut up and go home. forget it.  
IF it is a dewback...then next we say...well, knowing what we know about SW universe, then the scene being depicted by the mural is very likely to be set on Tatooine.  (especially with the tan/sand/desert color of the mural)

Now this is where it gets interesting.  In relation to all of the "Anakin, who's your daddy?" talk that's been going on lately,  whether it was Palpy, Plaggy, or the Force itself.....this could be a hint as to why the chosen one ended up on tatooine.  

(You could also speculate that that's why Luke was hidden from  the darkside there....like Yoda and Dagobah's cave....add other EU quotes here, etc. ....this might be stretching it too far. )

What do you think?

I don't know, but I hope it's not a dewback. For a planet that's supposed to be the ass end of the universe, there's already too much happening on Tatooine.

Interesting idea. I for one will entertain that train of thought.

I love details like that. I just wonder how intentional it is.

It does look like a dewback--of course, we've seen very little of the creatures in the SW Universe.  But if it IS a Dewback, that doesn't mean that it has to be Tatooine.  Rancors exist on several planets, for instance.

You could be on to something...  I like the train of thought.

also to keep note, near the dewback and prominently shown in the movie is someone using what appears to be a lightsaber or maybe a sword. that looks alot like the pre-production renditions for Darth Maul in TPM. they finally got use out of that concept...
