Spielberg was "allowed" to help on the movie?[edit]

Might want to reconsider the wording. "Invited" could be better? Johnny "ThunderPeel2001" Walker (talk) 19:05, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Followed by.. The Clone Wars?[edit]

I mean, however bad it may be.. it is technically G-Canon. So, in that case, wouldn't this one be followed by The Clone Wars? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.28.105.1 (talk) 19:46, 6 No, the Clone Wars was before this, then 19 years after, came a new hope.

Inappropriate Language[edit]

I removed an instance of inappropriate language from the Releases section. Main reason being it's not the type of work you would expect to find when reading an article about star wars. It doesn't really add anything to the article and the paragraph in question certainly doesn't lose any meaning by taking the word out. Spacemonkeynz (talk) 23:40, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Reception[edit]

The reception seems to be strongly focused on near-release reception, and could probably be expanded pretty significantly. Is anyone up for the challenge? - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 21:26, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

About the Chinese mis-translation[edit]

The ones you listed are actually your mis-translation. 'Good elephant', 'do not want', that's what you get when you translate Chinese word from word,but Chinese doesn't work that way. The two Chinese words are binded together to mean something completely different than seperated. In these cases, they mean "It seems" and "NOOOOO" — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kevinchengxin (talkcontribs) 14:01, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Funny thing is, Google's translator only translates those characters (好象, Hǎo xiàng in Pinyin) as "Good Elephant" from Japanese (Kō zō in Japanese romaji) whereas from Chinese, the phrase "Seems to" comes up.

Citation needed for [50][edit]

The link for reference [50] is dead, and I can't find any other source to replace it. Suggest it is replaced with a good old {citation needed} 77.213.95.67 (talk) 19:17, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the notification! We do not have to remove a reference if the link is dead. Per WP:LINKROT, we should try to relocate the URL or find an archived version of it. I've done the latter, and Internet Archive had archived versions here. I've updated the reference to contain the archived URL. Erik (talk | contribs) 21:34, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
Cool! Thanks :D —Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.213.95.67 (talk) 14:14, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

About Filming[edit]

At first,please forgive me for my poor English.

Not only Phuket in Thailand,but also Guilin in China,was the locations scouted for EP3, to capture plate photography for backdrops on the planet Kashyyyk.

Here are some links of Databank and Wookiepedia:

Mistranslation sources[edit]

Just out of curiosity, why are we letting an apparent blog qualify as a WP:RS in the mistranslation section? DP76764 (Talk) 19:29, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

'Protocol 66'?[edit]

The plot section describes Order 66 as 'Protocol' 66 - nowhere else have I heard it being called that before. The films call it Order 66; the books call it Order; Lucas calls it Order 66; Wookieepaedia calls it Order 66. Please can someone change this major discrepancy!?

Um Im pretty sure that to the clones It was known as protocol 66 or order 66 because of it is more militaristic that wayJdkoqdnwi (talk) 12:15, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Wording issues in the plot section[edit]

I have a bit of a concern here regarding the wording on Anakin's immolation scene (specifically "severely burned"). Since immolation means that an object is killed or destroyed by fire and is listed as such in the soundtrack, I think the word nearly immolated makes more sense since Anakin is nearly dying from the flames before he is turned into Vader. I don't want to make it sound ambiguous or get involved in an edit war over it, but I am discussing this matter here so we can come up with a compromise. Thoughts? Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 17:36, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Immolation does mean killed or destroyed, often via self sacrifice. That's not what happens in the scene, he's severely burned yes, but not immolated as he's still alive. Canterbury Tail talk 19:51, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
Right, so should we consider "significantly burned", "burned to a significant degree" or "critically burned" an alternative? Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 20:24, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
I just checked the script to see what terminology they used, but unfortunately Anakin bursting into flames is the closest they get to mentioning the burn damage in it. Maybe significantly burned. Critically I prefer as an expression but I'm concerned we'd be putting too much OR into phrasing it that way. Canterbury Tail talk 01:14, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Premiere information should be edited[edit]

This article cites the Premiere as taking place on May 16 in Cannes, when in fact there were charity benefit screenings in 10 cities on May 12, 2005. Also, on May 13, there were two screenings in George Lucas' hometown of Modesto. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.181.74.235 (talk) 20:58, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Deleted Scenes[edit]

George Lucas no longer owns Star Wars, so he will never be the one to release a six DVD collection. Should this be edited out?96.247.7.59 (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 02:33, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
