\n* A phantom is like a ghost, a specter that is physically not there... yet it stands before us in spite of that. A hologram is a virtual projector that makes a person appear before an audience as if he's really there despite the fact you cannot touch him for he lacks substances. Save for one scene, and all the scenes that featuring his secret identity, which character only appears as a hologram for the majority of the film?

***** It just so happens that the original trilogy has far more for older audiences to enjoy.

***Except...unless you go back thousands of years, there aren't Jedi who've had to leave family. Anakin is "too old" for the Council...at NINE. By most standards, the only thing he's a bit old for is potty-training and kindergarten. Jedi children are taken from their families to the temple when they're literally too young to remember anything about where they came from. And this actually contributes to the Jedi's complete and total incompetence dealing with Anakin's crises--first over his mother, then over Padme. They seem to have absolutely no protocol in place for dealing openly with the kind of emotional stress he's under. Anakin doesn't even feel he can talk about any of it openly without risking discipline (we don't know exactly what, but possibly up to and including being expelled from the order.) The operating assumption is that Jedi just never have these problems, here's some vague platitudes, now stop having these feelings. Yoda can't in fact be anything BUT vague as treating it entirely as a discipline question means Anakin's holding back critical information. They reluctantly take this kid on from a horribly traumatic background and they never remotely consider that it might mean there are special issues that Standard Jedi Instructions won't be able to deal with.

\n* The way Qui-Gon and Darth Maul act during their duel while being separated by an energy gate is a summation of the Jedi and SIth philosophies. Qui-Gon closes his eyes, meditates and focuses on summoning the best of his training to improve his skills. Darth Maul paces around, gathering anger and gaining a tunnel vision on his enemy he constantly glares at, focusing on his weak points.

** To whit, [[{{Bookends}} chronologically, both "Phantom Menace" and "Jedi" culminate with a Sith lord being beaten by a Jedi using a green lightsaber]].

...actually, that fits better on WMG
* Brilliantly horribly brilliant theory: Jar Jar Binks was: A Force master; a Sith ally; ''the real enemy all through the prequel trilogy.'' No, really, read this: -->[[https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWars/comments/3qvj6w/theory_jar_jar_binks_was_a_trained_force_user "Jar Jar Binks was a trained Force user, knowing Sith collaborator, and will play a central role in The Force Awakens"]]

Horrible theory: Jar Jar Binks was the enemy all along!

\n* Why does Anakin have an American accent when his mother has a Swedish one and the other person he's always around, Watto has some kind of Italian/Middle Eastern accent? It's because he listened to the pilots who came into Watto's shop and admired and wanted to be like them. Most of the human ones likely were Corellian(like Han) and have American accents.

*** What better way to ensure control of the public and their opinion than through the creation of a "common enemy"? One that threatens to tear down the largely legitimate government with no real plan of what to do next, save to reinstate the corrupt Republic?

*** Yes, I'm sure Palpatine would have allowed her a long and happy life and not manipulate one of Anakin's strongest emotional ties to push him towards the dark side. It wouldn't surprise me to learn he was behind her ultimate fate anyway.

** Another point on those lines: probably not intentional, but when concentrating on pilotting, in the pod-race scene and perhaps in the fighter as well, he makes a face rather similar to the Emperor's in ROTJ while electrocuting Luke.
