I was watching the original trilogy yesterday, and I noticed something peculiar:

Some of the battles from the original trilogy looked very similar to those in Episode I.

For Example:

1. The Space Battle at the Battle of Naboo vs. The Battle to destroy the Death Star (from both Ep. IV and VI)

2. The Trade Federation Droid/Gungal Battle at the Battle of Naboo vs. The Battle of Hoth

Have any of you ever noticed this, or any other ones?

Also don't forget the Kenobi/Jango asteroid fight in Clones and the Han/TIE Fighters asteroid flight in Empire.
So if he is mimicing his own trilogy in the new trilogy, then we can expect to see another big space battle and a personal fight with Anakin and someone while in the presence of Palpatine/Emperor.

Yet another good one. Thanks a lot, MassassiC!

In one interview with George Lucas, he said that a lot of the things that happened to Luke and friends would happen to Anakin so the similaritys are purposeful. Oh and let's not forget the main protaganist losing his hand in the second film of the trilogy

Hey mojo1701, where is that second quote in your signature from? It sounds...Dick-ian.

What do you mean by Dick-ian?

Anyway, this particular quote is from an episode of ST: Voyager, said by the Doctor, I think, while they were stuck on Earth in the year 1996. Future's End

Chello!

He's more-than-likely referring to he writings of Phillip K. Dick ("The Man in High Castle").

Anyway, a friend of mine once said that Ep 1 is essentially Ep 4 w/o a Han Solo character. What ticked my friend off about that wasn't the rewrite, but that he is a big Han Solo fan!

Yeah, I recently read The Simulacra, which is about psychoanalysts, so that quote struck a chord with me.
