Jango Fett - the next Darth Maul?13 February 2002:

Jango Fett compared to Darth Maul:

Well, we knew this was coming... didn't we? A recent interview with producer Rick McCallum netted the following remarks from Empire Magazine and McCallum himself:

But perhaps the greatest excitement generated by the first AOTC trailers focused on Jango Fett [Temuera Morrison], bounty hunter, father to Boba and a sure thing to be to Ep II what Darth Maul was to Ep I : a breakout star.

"He is the ultimate accessory dude," enthuses McCallum with relish. "Forget all the bulls**t we have today - colour mobile phones - this dude knows how to party. He comes to it with everything. He's my favourite, he's my dream ...

This was previously reported on Empire Online and the whole article, "Forget the Bull### we Have Today" can now be read on Episode-X. The consensus here is still to bring back Darth Maul...

Sith Holocrons in Episode II:

Sith Holocron from "Secrets of the Sith"T'Bone gives a great report of the appearance of several Holocrons in AOTC - A Jedi Holocron, A Sith Holocron and one simply named the Great Holocron.

"The Sith one looks a lot like it does in the comics and stuff - right down to the details and aurabesh font on the bottom. If you've seen the book SECRETS OF THE SITH, then you've seen what the Sith Holocron will look like in EPISODE II. Outside of some of the detailing on the sides, that's the exact same design."

T'Bone's report "Holocrons in Episode II" has some spoilers in it and can be read in its entirety at

The Lost Twenty - Now a Cut Scene?:

SWMovies has reported "On the Cutting Room Floor: Pt. 1" the rumour that the scene of the "Lost Twenty Jedi" has been cut from the movie. Apparently all mention of the twenty Jedi who have "left" the Order over the years has ended up on the cutting room floor, perhaps only to be mentioned in the novelization. Only May will tell if this is true or not.

Read the full report: Prepare for the Worst (Part 3) at Episode-X. Warning: Major spoilers.
