    Jedi Master Lesson 101:
    The Force and The Symbiotic relationships to The Planets, and Its Enviornments:
    Its Amazing how the Star Wars environments change with the movement of the film In Star Wars beginning with a no hope dust bowl of a planet Tatooine to Yavin IV a promising Garden of Eden with A New Hope. Then in Empire the enviornment never seemed to chsnge. Starting out with Hoth being a blizzard mess to a catclysmic Asteroid belt of confusion The mysterious murky Dagobah meeting up with the hard to see Orange Bespin clouds where The Dark Side rises up to see The Light. Then With Return of The Jedi back to The Dustbowl of Tatooine with The Light prevailing at Jabbas Sail Barge. Then getting back to a more clearer looking Dagobah and topping it off to Victory on another life giving jungle planet of Endor for The Rebels and The Force. The Enviornments of Star Wars is a Force filled ecosystem created by all living things. It just goes to show that the temperate of where we live is governed by The Dark and The Light . And the concentration of Good over Bad energy that we put in of War And Peace,and that foreshadows the effect that prevails from all natures being of Sunshine and Blue Skies Cool Breezes TO Floods and Tornadoes and Volcanoes of Natural Disasters. I believe it is a warning to all living things. We live in harmony with nature. A symbiotic relationship. And our attitudes we put into our ecosystems can keeps nature balanced and at times can offsets a vergence to The two sides of The Force. Like weapons and bombs bursting in our atmospheres. I believe that is The Whill of THINGS and The Way of The Force. Demanded by The God's it is!

    I love the exchange between R2 and 3PO when Luke leaves the room ....when R2 squeeks the question, "do you think he likes me?", 3PO answers no, R2 asks "do you like me?", CPO says "no, I don't like you either". R2 sighs.

    In ANH when Luke steps out and looks at the twin suns while the musical score swells. I can distinctly remember watching that scene for the first time as a child and feeling just a sense of wonder at the whole thing. First the two suns was so amazing and John Williams score just made it feel so real and breathtaking.

    1. C-3PO is talking himself up to Owen and Owen says, "Ok, shut up". C-3PO says, "Shutting up, sir". Jawas are making a lot of noise in the background so it's difficult to hear. I only noticed this as an adult after dozens (hundreds?) of viewings. As someone else mentioned, these movies are dense with content!

    2. Hearing the imperial march played, I think, on harp when Vader dies. So strange to hear it in a pleasant tone vs. a menacing one.

    3. The slight eye shift Obi Wan does when Luke asks him how his father died.

    4. The way Palpatine speaks. Every syllable is enunciated to a T. Also, how his tone is dripping with sarcasm when he tells Luke about the trap.

    5. When Luke looks at Vader's wrist stump and back at his own artificial hand.

    6. The fact that Luke's T-16, the model that he's playing with in his garage, is parked just outside the door and is visible in the movie. This is another thing I only noticed as an adult after many, many viewings.

    The magic of seeing little R2 trundle through the canyon and the glimpses of brown robes, glowing eyes. That part freaked me out so much as a kid lol.

    Chewie wanting out of the garbage shoot looking all scared.

    Luke telling Wedge to get out of here "you can't do any more good back there". Then of course the sorry on the way out by Wedge... so Canadian lol.

    There's so many thanks that need to be spread around regarding the Original Trilogy. George Lucas, Ralph McQuarrie, John Williams, Marcia Lucas, the list goes on and on.

    But one thing I've found that really gets me fully absorbed into that galaxy far, far away are the SOUNDS.

    Ben Burtt did an absolutely amazing job making everything sound so unique and interesting. From lightsabers and laser blasts, to ships and probe drods. I've yet to encounter any other movies that come anywhere close to the special sound of Star Wars.

    One of my favorite little things was in ANH when Chewie and R2 we're playing Dejarik. It's a nice little glimpse into what Chewie likes to do in his spare time, when he's not smuggling or pulling arms off of Stormtroopers.

    This.

    I love the sounds, in the OT my favorites are:

    - Utini and others Jawa's sounds (language);
    - Ewokese : I love how its sounds, specially when they are singing preparing the firewood to cook the rebels...hahaha;
    - Sound of a lightsaber in ignition;
    - Sound of some spaceships (specially the tie fighters);
    - Huttese: Bib fortuna and jabba. It sounds so cool this language. Other example is Sebulba in TPM;
    - AT-AT moving steps

    Alec's facial expressions. I love this one and the more obvious one where Luke ask what happens to his father.

    My favorite little bits of the OG Series, has to be when Leia first sees the Millennium Falcon and says, "You can in that thing?" All the puns that have stemmed from that make it one of my favorite parts.

    Vader's redemption, that whole scene no words. You know Vader was having flashback's of when he had good in him, and that it still there, it took his son's love to pull him back to the light.

    Bit random, but something that springs to mind is the shot of Threepio walking into the frame towards Artoo in TESB on Hoth. It looks like it’s a cut/edit to make it look like he’s entered the frame through the camera, and it’s not a shot I recall seeing in many films, which I find strange because I think it looks awesome. It helps that the droids are ‘stuck’, solid beings so you would maybe notice the edit more if they were people with constantly-moving clothes and faces.

    Ahch-To an uncharted watery planet, a remote island represents isolation and Luke's hermitage. Luke discovered this lost world after a long search and chose it for his exile... death... Canto Bight located on a desert world of Cantonica for the ultra-rich seeking entertainment, opportunity, and high stakes... one does not seek death here, but opportunities for much more... and there's Crait, a mineral planet covered with white salt over red soil. Salt purifies. As the FO attempts to cleanse the galaxy of the Resistance, it is reborn.

    R2D2 Peering into Yoda’a hut in Episode V,
    The frog-like creature slurping up a little creature outside Jabba’s Palace in VI,
    Chewbacca scaring off the mouse droid in IV.

    None of these little details were necessary to tell the story, but they add a lot of “feel” to the Star Wars experience for me.

    I love that Luke is playing with his model in ANH and his real T-16 Skyhopper is in the background.

    Far too many to choose from but here are a some of my favourites.

    Introduction to my favourite character of all time, Han Solo, showing his ruthless side.


    The reveal of my favourite ship of all time!



    Everything about this scene from TESB is amazing!
    • Our heroes escaping a base on the verge of destruction.
    • Vader and the new (at the time) Snow troopers hunting them down with a cool new Tri-pod Cannon.
    • Han being grumpy.
    • The dialogue between Han/C3PO/Leia.
    • The Millennium Falcon's new mini Blaster.
    • The Falcon having trouble starting.
    • Every sound in this scene, Vader/Falcon/Mini Blaster.
    • Our heroes beginning a new adventure.

    The color of the sky in the background as Luke scans the horizon for Artoo with his macrobinoics in ANH.
    The first jump to lightspeed.
    Princess Leia smiling at the medal ceremony.
    The specter of Ben on Hoth.
    Yoda levitating Luke's X-wing from the swamp.
    "I am your father."
    Yoda's final scene with Luke.
    "You, like your father, are now...mine!"
    The music as the Falcon flies into the Death Star reactor chamber. It has a feeling of "let's finish this."
    Unmasking Vader, and the soft rendition of his theme.
