A great view about the rymes and poetry of the SAGA and how all is connected in some way shape or form.

Good evening, everyone. This is my first (and quite possibly the last) post here after years of... say, clandestine presence :) .

KyleKartanMG: thank you so much. The essay you linked is nothing short of fucking brilliant and while I don't think it's going to impress prequel-haters (they'll always find other good reasons for resentment, like wooden acting, Jar Jar or whatever), I'm really glad there is finally a place where we can see the big picture, the whole story as it was conceived by Lucas. Since my profession is closely linked with storytelling, I "truly, deeply love" and admire GL's work - it's enertaining, visually compelling and, as it turns out, much deeper than some of us expected.
What a glorious night :) .

However, the real question is: Is there anything JJ Abrams can do to connect the seventh episode to a closed ring of previous six? My guess is he can't and does not intend to.

I totally agree. This is great work and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. The way the author discribes and puts his theses are extraordinary and proof GLs genious.

I will always love the STAR WARS Saga and the Prequels have a special pleace in my heart as they where MY growing up STAR WARS. To read something like this is so refreshing and entertaining in contrast to all the stupid hate and bashing these extraordinary movies get.

I love Star Wars, but I couldn't get past the first page. Incredibly slow-developing piece that is really just trying to find ways to prop up the PT.

Are there mirrored situations in the PT and OT? Yes. I don't think it needed a 10,000 word essay when the echoes and callbacks are clear as day to anyone paying attention in these movies.

Yeah, it's a long read, and I'm only half way through it, but there are some things here that I had never thought of before.

It's best to read this essay one section at a time at your own pace. It's turning out to be well worth it, for me anyway.

Wow. Thank you guys SO MUCH for taking a look at the essay. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.

CoGro, please stick with it. While many of us have noticed echoes between the films over the years, this is something else completely. And the films (and Lucas) really deserve some serious critical attention for this. This is a monumental cinematic achievement. I'm trying to shout this from the rooftops to anybody who will listen. So, I would be extremely grateful for any help spreading the word...

Much Softer: I printed out your comment and hung it up. I really don't know what to say.

And then there's the million dollar question: Does JJ Abrams know about this? Or has the far too humble Lucas decided to keep this one to himself? Maybe Coppola, Scorsese, and some other close friends. I'm dying to know...

Thanks again guys.

MTFBWY

You are most welcome, Mike. Thanks for writing this thing. I can't imagine how long it took you to do this.
It really has me looking at the whole Star Wars saga in a new light, and I'm one of the old school fans. :heavymetal:

Believe it or not, it took almost two years. Now, I need a vacation. If only I could go to Hawaii with Spielberg...

What annoys me is that some people are trying to put the stuff mike mentiones in the essay as kind of convincidence! They claim that there is no intent behind the stuff. Which obviously is NOT the case!!! Its obvious, by the sheer number of examples, that those are choices made during the writing and production process of the movie.

I do love the prequels and will defend this movies to death. They have their reputation because of some naughty bitter fans who can't accept the fact that they have grown out of STAR WARS and Lucas hasnt told the story they made up in their mind. Thats why they scream out their hate every time they have the opportunity to.

Mike: THANK YOU for this essay! It's AWESOME GREAT work and displays the true genious of STAR WARS and George Lucas.

Indeed.

Thanks for thoroughly laying out this theory, mike. I'm not a completely stranger to it but I've never seen it covered with such depth and scholarly rigor. Had a blast reading it!

Thanks again guys, I really can't begin to tell you how much it means to me that so many people are taking the time to read it--and starting to see ALL of the Star Wars films for what they are...a work of staggering genius.

CoGro, you and I could talk for hours. I'd love to buy you a beer. I'm actually working on another piece that will begin to address many of the common criticisms levied against Star Wars in general, and the prequels in particular. And I think you're going to be pleasantly surprised at what I found out during my research. It really does help to put things into perspective when you dig up all the stuff that was written about Star Wars from the late 70s and early 80s. It makes me wonder whether the spirit of Pauline Kael and all the others are living on in the hearts and minds of many of the prequel bashers.

And the reason I began to write the second piece around the same time as I started the first is because I fully predicted a great deal of the response to the Ring Theory to be of the "Yeah, that's nice but the movies still suck because of acting/dialogue/etc." variety.

But I actually love the discussion. I encourage it. I think there's a great deal we can all learn from it.

So everybody do me a favor and post a link to the Ring Theory on their Facebook page and tweet about it. Let's get the word out!

Thanks again and MTFBWY.

-Mike

This was a brilliant essay. I thank you for all the time you put into it. As a writer myself, I appreciate the details you included. And, as a person who sees the PT on an equal plane with the OT, it's nice to see the PT get some legitimate, detailed analysis in the positive for once.

Great, great work!
