I have just watched the original version of ROTJ again minus all the changes. It still stands up as a great film but I have a couple of continuity issues with it when viewed as six parts.

Kenobi tells Luke that he took it on himself to train Anakin but this isnt the case. Qui-Gon asked him to and he had doubts about Anakin from the start. He also says he thought he could train him as good as Yoda but I dont recall him ever saying that in the prequels.

When Luke tells Vader to come with me on Endor Vaders says Obi Wan once thought as you do yet in the prequels Obi Wan didnt come across as someone who thought Anakin could be saved. He didnt come across as someone who thought Anakin could turn back to the light side? So he tries to stop him and temporarily succeeds only for Anakin to be rebuilt.

Solo understands Wicket when he shows him the back door to the generator yet when they first arrived he hadnt a clue what they were saying. Dont tell me he learned the language that quick. Did he just take a lucky guess?

In the throne room the Emperor refers to Luke as his young apprentice. Does Vader not know the rule of two? Surely it means he will be replaced? I know Vader was planning to replace the emperor with Luke himself but surely he would be worried. Also why did Vader stop Luke from cutting down the emperor when this is what he wanted? Or did Vader feel the Emperor would have stopped Luke somehow?

Maybe Im nitpicking here. Maybe you guys can tell me Im completely wrong.

help me SW fans you are my only hope

For the first one, regardless of whether he did to honour Qui-Gon or not, he still took it upon himself to train Anakin. Regarding what he thought, I don't think that needed to be spelled out, he decided to train Anakin, so obviously thought he was capable of it Smile

Quite a while since I watched the original without changes, but doesn't Threepio translate about the backdoor? Or perhaps he didn't understand the language per se, but saw the door, so knew what they were talking about?

Ironically I'm halfway through the Blue-Ray version atm (having watched ANH and Empire over the last couple of days), so will see what I spot when it gets to the back door part Smile

No worries

Just got past the rear door part - when they're at the main entrance, Wicket tells Threepio about a "secret entrance" and Threepio tells Han and Leia, then when Han see's the back door, he says to Wicket about the back door being a good idea, so I don't think the language is an issue Smile

With Obi-Wan and coninuity, this video always makes me laugh - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vXcBDQy-RY

To be fair to Lucas, considering the two trilogies were written two decades apart, I don't think he did too bad a job with the continuity, it more or less fits together. Obviously, there are one or two small things, but I don't think there's anything major.

Yes I suppose theres nothing major. I always had issues with Leia remembering her mother and what Obi Wan tells Luke about his relationship with Anakin.

If you just watched the movies and never read any EU material you would be scratching your head over certain things.

Thanks again DarthDov

I guess with the Leia remembering her mother bit, there's two ways you can look at it -

a) she was actually remembering her foster mum, and wasn't actually remembering her real mum or

b) because she was strong in the force, she managed to pick up feelings and emotions from Padme in the couple of minutes she was with her.

I guess from real world perspectives, she could also have had dreams when she was little about what her real mum was like and through time confused the dreams with memories.

This is a hard question for me. I think it would have to be Return of the Jedi. Sure, the Ewoks were lame, but I think it was a good story. Episode 4 is a close second, but I like RotJ a bit more.

My opinion is a bit complicated. I agree with the majority of Star Wars fans that Empire was the best movie overall. But Return of the Jedi is still my favorite. I absolutely love Luke's character in that one, and I love the brother-sister back-and-forth beween Luke and Leia. (Even before he tells her, e.g. "I see them, wait, Leia!") So even though I admit Empire to be the best one, Jedi is my favorite. Smile
