Notes

Film

  • Starts with Qui-Guy and Obi-Wan finishing their conversation. Qui-Guy admits that Obi-Wan is a much wiser man.
  • Ends with the gang arriving at the Gungan Sacred Place.
  • New Queen outfit (Sabé): battle dress.
  • More negative Panaka. This is one is his most grim pronouncement.

Podcast

  • Our big 100th episode spectacular.
  • Originally, the droids did not find Otoh Gunga, and the Naboo starship flies straight into the water to dock with the city.
  • Frustratingly, there is little information on Wookieepedia about the Sacred Place.
  • Adding texture and depth that hints at a larger universe.
  • The Trials.
  1. Teamwork
  2. Isolation
  3. Fear
  4. Anger
  5. Betrayal
  6. Focus
  7. Instinct
  8. Forgiveness
  9. Protection
  • Cut scene of Jar Jar in the Gungan city, showing blast points.
  • The heartbreak of Ahmed Best's story.
    • Everyone thought Jar Jar would be great and the breakout character, and is now one of the most reviled characters in cinema history.
  • The critical success when this movie first came out.
    • There was a sentiment change with the 3D re-release.
    • Shoutout to Chris Radtke.
    • Similar but reverse with ESB, no one thought it was the best when it came out, but it gained in popularity during the Dark ages.
  • Follow Jacob on Twitter.
  • Jacob reiterates that he is not specifically "Team Prequels", he's "Team George".
