    Lucas at one point considered having Vader and Fett be brothers in the prequel films, but discounted it as too "'hokey'".[3]

    We're through the looking glass here, people.

    I honestly think there was someone involved who was just continually shooting down Lucas' stupid ideas, but they just could not hold back the sheer volume of them.

    They probably stopped when they felt like they were on the verge of losing their job.

    Actually I am under the impression that it was a number of people, like his wife (at the time), various actors who wouldn't say his dumb lines (Ford, I would guess, probably others), pretty much anyone involved in the early productions. I heard that the scene where C3PO has been blown to bits in the desert and Luke and Obi-Wan have to collect his limbs and shit took like five minutes in the original cut, and then his wife or someone was like, "No, fuck this, it's gonna be three seconds."

    I really want to see the version that he edited, before someone competent got to it.

    So the major difference in quality from the first 3 and the last 3 is simply because he had become too big for most people to say no to him?

    Today, Lucas is one of the American film industry's most financially successful independent directors/producers, with an estimated net worth of $3.9 billion.

    that is so much goddam money

    Ford definitely had a part in avoiding dumb lines.

    You know the scene where Han is about to get frozen and carbonite and Leia is all "I love you Han" and then Han says probably his most defining line, one of the lines that makes him such a bad ass "I know." Well in the script he was supposed to say "I love you too." but Ford decided that was something Han wouldn't say at all so he and the director went with the new line. As I understand it Lucas threw a fit saying they were ruining his movie blah blah blah.

    No, I get it. Boba Fett is Vader's half brother who has an earthly father, making Darth Vader even more into the nega-Christ.

    He's done a great job of branching out and getting out of Luke's shadow by getting into VA, and he's an amazing talent at it, too.

    On a sidenote, I'm not impressed by the trailer to this film at all. There's a lot of odd cuts and deliveries to it that doesn't bode well for me. By the way, why in fuck does Ewan MacGregor have a crappy American accent if he's playing a British person?

    As far as I can tell he has a crappy American accent for the trailer but a English one in the actual movie.
