We can change the title, I just improvised since we were at 300 posts. It's a quote from the chosen one prophecy.

This title's pretty cool. I always liked how the Chosen One prophecy was easily misinterpreted. Prophecies only make sense in hindsight. That's why there are so many Second Comings and Antichrists. And why the world has, by last count, ended over a hundred times if all mythology is true.

Of course, the sith'ari prophecy is more apocalyptic: Destroying the Sith and remaking them.

Oh, interestingly, mustafar is Arabic for "chosen one". Yeah. Throw in Kamino (Japanese for "belonging to the gods") and Coruscant (Latin coruscare, "to shine") and you've even got prophetic-sounding names in the planet names. One in every prequel.

Naboo most likely comes from nabob, "a British governor in colonial India, an arrogant person". Very famously Richard Nixon described his enemies as "nattering nabobs of negativity". Either way, "nabob" describes Palpatine pretty well.

Same here. Anakin was fulfilling the prophecy, but not the way Obi-Wan and the others had expected him too.

Actually, the thing I'm the most angry about when it comes to RotS is that we didn't get to see Qui-Gon's ghost. Why mention him at all? I was so hoping to hear his response to Anakin's fall. I read a fanfic that proposed Qui-Gon knew the whole time exactly what would happen, but he also knew that it must. They drew the theory from his line about how he wished Jedi couldn't be killed.

That's really interesting. I'm hesitant to ascribe that kind of forethought to GL though.

TFTNT. I really like the title.

I was upset by Qui-Gon's missing voiceover too. Liam couldn't come in for one day's work?

Do you still have the link?

Naboo - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki
Quote:
It is possible that Naboo was named after Nabu, a god of wisdom worshiped by the ancient Babylonians.

No prob.

That sounds more like Naboo to me.

I wonder if they even asked him?

No. I had it favorited on my old account, but I don't have that one anymore.

I'm always hesitant to believe that GL is that deliberate though, tbh.

True, but mustafar and kamino make perfect sense.

Utapau was originally the name of Tatooine. It's somewhere in Southeast Asia; remember, the original Star Wars was about Vietnam IN SPACE! with Luke being from the Wild West (now set in Tunisia), all the bad guys being British (except Vader and Motti*), and the climax being in Mexico.

*A bit of Fridge Brilliance in casting an American to play Motti and making Han the most "American" character, since the United States was the first secular Western state and these two characters most vocally proclaim atheism.

Yea, but he did read Joseph Campbell's Hero of a Thousand Faces.
He could have done his research or someone else who did suggested the name to him.

He's pretty deliberate.

OTOH, with Jacen in the EU, the writers decided to have his story mirror that of Jason. And of course in Kevin J. Anderson's little five-man band, Jacen plays the role of The Hero, like another Jason*.

*Jacen's The Hero, Jaina's The Lancer, Tenel Ka's The Big Guy, Lowie's The Smart Guy, and M-TD's The Chick. And Zekk's the Sixth Ranger.

Why do you say that? He makes mistakes all the time.

There can be a book written on inconsistencies.

Deliberately inconsistent. I figure it's something like:

"Okay, Luke's father was a Jedi Knight, and I had no trouble letting the Marvels, the only EU sources I was personally consulted with, mention the sons of the Jedi, but because I had one bad relationship, I'm going to say the Jedi can't love. Oh, but it is possible, as I'll mention in a BBC article nobody read so everybody makes that mistake because if I mention it in the film, that will give it an instant R rating. And we'll go for the 'forbidden love' angle. And then Anakin, trying to save Padmé, will kill her."

OTOH, the idea that Anakin was too old to begin training, and Anakin slaughters every Jedi in the temple...a bit deliberate. (And there's the delayed-reaction screams.)
