DARTH MAUL: When a padawan kicks your ass you don’t deserve to be in the sequel.
Ok, here’s a question: Without using any information from exo-movie materials, ie, books, comics, video games, etc.; only using information from the two hours of The Phantom Menace, what are the stacks if Obi-wan and Ginny are killed by Darth Maul?
What happens to Naboo, the Queen, the Jedi, the Galaxy, etc. if the two Jedi lose? Remember, you can’t reference anything outside of this movie.
Could it be any worse than the entire galaxy being thrown into civil war, an army of clones marching forth to hail victory to the new Sith Emperor?
Cuz, you know, I thought shit was pretty bad after this anyways.
That all happens in the two movies after Phantom Menace. I’m talking strictly with the events in the first movie and the first movie alone. Remember, the original trilogy movies can each stand on their own and don’t require extra material to understand the story. In Episode 4, we see the stakes of the rebels failing to blow up the Death Star because we’ve seen how the Empire behaves and how powerful the Death Star is.
I don’t see anything from Episode 1 that tells me Darth Maul is the bad guy and he’s evil and must be stopped. Aside from his appearance, he doesn’t do anything evil except for attacking Jedi. For all we know, Darth Maul is a stand-up citizen of the Republic, pays his space taxes, takes his space kids to the space zoo, and donates to space charities. On top of that, we’re never told what his motivations are, for example, his father could’ve been killed by a Jedi and he’s out for some revenge! There are stories where he would be a hero in that case.
The point I was making, was that the viewer of Episode 1 has no bearing on why Darth Maul is evil, and why it’s a bad thing for the Sith to succeed in bumping off a pair of Jedi on some po-dunk planet no one in the Republic seems to care about.
Darth Maul reports back to his Sith Lord and the invasion of Naboo is a success the Queen and her gaurd exucuted and the Gungans killed, and Anakin doesn’t get to have Gin has his master.
But the Queen and Gungans succeed without the Jedi’s help. At most people would be sad their friends died, but nothing would change outside of that. What I’m saying is this: the motivations of the villians and the stakes involved in their success are never fully discussed in episode 1.
And this is just with Darth Maul. I haven’t even mentioned Trade Federation story problems
True, I forgot about that its been a few years since I’ve seen the first one. Revised:
Darth Maul Reports back to his Sith Lord, Anakin never becomes a Jedi Padawan because he is either dead or lost.
But, the Jedi weren’t going to train him anyways. They said he was too dangerous to be trained and were way too worried about him being trained. Ginny just takes it upon himself to start training Anakin.
