    We often have all sorts of discussion regarding certain characters and moments that draw parallels between the episodes. I wanted to start a thread that continues do that but with the reinforcement of screenshots.

    Post screenshots of parallel moments you've spotted that you think were done intentionally and carry a deeper meaning. Perhaps instead moments that were not intentional but coincidentally make a connection. (hopefully the mods won't kill me for encouraging media uploads)

    Please don't post the Death Star, Death Star 2 and Starkiller Base. That will not be funny. I will fight you.

    I hope I have explained the idea of this thread correctly. Feel free to message me if I have confused you.

    This is an example of what I mean:


    Screen Shot 2017-07-03 at 01.10.53.png Screen Shot 2017-07-03 at 01.15.13.png

    Can you draw the parallel here or is it just my imagination?

    Cheers guys have fun!

    I know there are a lot George put in intentionally, but some like that sort of seem like a stretch of the imagination. That's not to say it's impossible it could have been intentional, and whether something was meant to be or not doesn't matter I guess. But this type of thing is fun either way!

    I have a lot, but I don't have access to the films on my phone currently, so screenshotting all of them isn't an option right now (but expect me to return in a few months with a load more).

    @Grand Master Galen Marek and @Julius Fett. I love the amount of effort you guys put into these posts. Some really cool parallels here. Some I hadn't noticed before. Thank you so much!

    i think a better comparison here could be the first picture paireed with AOTC when Padme is trying to comfort Anakin after he has killed all of the tusken raiders and rescued his mom

    No problem @Darth Lunya , it's a pleasure! Been thinking about starting a thread like this for a while now, so I'm overjoyed that you started it!

    There are plenty more, but I'm having trouble finding them with limited resources on Google images, so I'll post as I see them; it also seems worth mentioning that III and VII have a fair few similarities, which makes me wonder about the case of a next saga trilogy: it looks as though, at least so far, George's circle theory has been kept very much intact.

    Many of you have probably read this already (and many probably disagree with at least some of it) but I think it's at least thought provoking and can challenge even a pretty devoted fan to reevaluate the series (in a good way, hopefully).

    It's multiple pages, and can make for a pretty long read, but I think it's generally pretty worth it.

    It's a great read! I'd noticed a lot of the parallels when I was younger between episodes, but never thought there was much to it (and my friends would have no idea what I was going on about).

    It really is an eye-opening piece as a SW fan, and it does make me wonder about whether the intention was/will be for the ST to carry this out further; the parallels between III and VII are quite remarkable (especially towards the end of the film) to the point that I wonder if Abrams and Kasdan were intentially mirroring themes and shots from the prior films in a similar way to how GL quite clearly did.

    That is an interesting thought. The sequel trilogy has the unique challenge of trying to do something new while still having to stay as "Star Wars" as possible. Aesthetically I think they're doing pretty good (a film with X-Wings and new OT-esque ships alongside a flashy prequel-like location like Canto Bight is a good start) but thematically like this will probably be more difficult to pull off. I'm sure they can do it if anyone can, though!

    Is it just me or does Mace windu's skull look similar to Snoke's disfigured face ?
