My wife and I saw it last night in Columbus, Ohio. Easton Mall, all 30 theatres were sold out. I also went to see it 3 times today as well...lol. What good fun.
She brought up a terrific argument, and wanted me to post here to get a few opinions. When Anakin is telling Padme about how he is more powerful than Palpatine, and that he can overtake him, and have "his" empire", she was thinking to a moment in ROTJ, when Vader throws Palpatine over the reactor. In 1983, we are all thinking that Vader finally has a heart, and cannot stand to see his son being fried like a chicken. Well, knowing Anakin's plan to rule the galaxy (with Padme originally), my wife questions weather or not Anakin killed Palpatine as sort of a last ditch opprotunity to "take over". It had me thinking alot, and I was really curious as to what people might think. Lucas and McCallum said this movie would make us all see the OT in a different light, maybe this could be one of the things he was referring to.
Its been fun, and thanks again to all the resourceful people onthis board who discovered leaks for all this time.
