“Empire Strikes Back” was on TV the other day. I came in right when Leia planted a wet one on Luke. Two possibilities: (1) either Lucas didn’t really have the whole story arc planned out in advance; or (2) Mackenzie Phillips was an uncredited script doctor on that flick . . .
And at the risk of opening a prequel can of worms, how on Earth could Leia have said that her mother “died when I was very young,” and she remembers “images, feelings. She was very beautiful, kind, but very sad” if she died during childbirth in “Sith”? The technical answer is that in 1983 or whatever they didn’t know they were going to do the prequels, but you’d think that since he was getting, like, a billion dollars to make them, Lucas would have figured out how to make Padme’s death jibe with the lines from “Jedi.”
Sorry, but I’m a bit Star Wars preoccupied today.
