    • Annakin has a son he knows about
    • Annakin has a daughter he doesn't know about
    • Said son has to end up on tatooine with Uncle Owen
    • Said daughter has to end up a princess on Alderon
    • Ben has to almost, but not quite kill Annakin
    • All good Jedi except Yoda and Obi-Wan are slain
    • The Emperor gains control of the clones and has an iron-clad lock on the Senate (later dissolved in Episode 4)
    • The Stormtroopers get new helmets.
    • Annakin gets a new suit and his voice suddenly sounds like James Earl Jones
    • Grand Moff Tarki
    • To be honest, I think all that could be done in a two hour movie, although the thought of having multiple movies is nice. A few thoughts:

      I miss anything?

      Yoda and Obi-Wan go into hiding in their respective new homes. I sure hope we see this.

      A young Han Solo will possibly be introduced.

      This seems doubtful, although Han is probably the most missed character from the original trilogy. Han is only a few years older than the twins. Episode II is probably not going to show the twins as anything old

      • Don't forget that we saw quite a few Jedi go down in the droid battle. If they do show the slaughter of the rest of the Jedi, I wonder how they're gonna handle those kid Jedi's...


        • Lucas has said that Episode III will be "very dark"; to the point that he thinks some of us may not like it. That may include wholesale slaughter of the younglings; who knows?

          I've wondered if the great purge has already started behind the scenes. Mace Windu said he would take "our remaining Jedi" to Geonosis. Had a bunch of Jedi disappeared, or were they all out on lunch break? If the number of Jedi fighting on Geonosis represents "all the Jedi left," that's not near as many Jedi as I thought were in existence. It would appear to be only one order of magnitude more than the council (and I don't think there's one Jedi council member for every ten Jedi). For that matter, how did Master Sifo-Desis (or whatever his name is) die? Accident, "accident," open combat with a Sith, natural causes?

          Read a timeline yesterday that suggested the Jedi's numbers were depleted by the (recent, but centuries-old) code of one padawan per master.
