Re: What misconceptions of Star Wars did you have as a kid?

Well, along the line of Darth Maul names, my little sister thought that DM's name was 1) Darth Mole (Me: Sis! It is MAUL, not MOLE!!!) and 2) Darth Mall.

Re: What misconceptions of Star Wars did you have as a kid?

Oh, that reminds me. I remember when I first noticed ANH had "Episode IV" on it and I thought, "4? I wonder where the other three are?" So my logical conclusion was that SW must be a book series and they made movies off it and for some reason only did the last three books in the series. So I went to the library and looked in the card catalouge for SW hoping to find the first three episodes. I was disappointed when I didn't find them, but I didn't care cause I found The Galaxy of Fear series and the Jedi Prince series. Unfortunately back then I thought I'd found a treasure, though now I know better.

Re: What misconceptions of Star Wars did you have as a kid?

Re: What misconceptions of Star Wars did you have as a kid?

When I first saw StarWars I called Boba, Babada the Hutt,and Jabba,sadly,was Boba Jabada.My little sister also thought Boba was Boomer,and Luke-my brother- was totally obsssed with Darth Vader...imagine his confusion when Vader said,"Luke,I am your father."
We all are about a year apart,and when we went to see Episode 1(I was about 6,so count done to find out all ofour ages,all four of us,Emi wasnt adopted yet) all of us were stoked to see it.After I saw it I asked my mother,"Mama,where is the guy with the helmet.Babada is my best buddie,I thought he was in this.He gonna be reallll mad cause he wasnt."
Suprisingly,my mom said that h ewasnt born yet.So thankyou BobaFett for giving me my first lesson on where babbies come from in the theater in OakRige

Re: What misconceptions of Star Wars did you have as a kid?

When EpII came out I saw a Sneak preview jango fett and I got really mad because I got really excited and said "Daddy, Daddy, look its Boba Fett." and my dad said "No Matthew, it says his name is Jango Fett." and I thought "Who the **** is Jango Fett" I thought that Lucas messed up big time. Then i saw the movie and I thought how stupid I was to think that Jango was dumb. There's is mine!

Re: What misconceptions of Star Wars did you have as a kid?

Oh, I remember another misconception I had... When Vader said, "The Empire will compensate you if he dies." I thought he said, "The Empire will confiscate you if he dies." I was really confused...

Re: What misconceptions of Star Wars did you have as a kid?

I know I posted a lot here, but I just remembered something I thought in ROTS, even though I wasn't a kid then. When Bail and the Clonetroopers are talking and Bail said, "And so it is." I thought he said, "It always is." I felt bad for him cause I thought everyone always wanted him to go. tongue

Re: What misconceptions of Star Wars did you have as a kid?

When I was little, I was scared to death of ESB and absolutely refused to watch it. My little sister and I would always skip it, and would run from the room whenever my sadistic older sibs tried to make us watch it or trick us into it.

I remember a while back before TPM came out I saw this picture of Queen Amidala and Obi-wan Kenobi standing together on this bridge by a waterfall, and I was like, "Sweet! Obi-wan gets a girl friend!"

Re: What misconceptions of Star Wars did you have as a kid?

Speaking of The Empire Strikes Back, when I was in High School they had the 20th Anniversary Editions on in the cinemas. Me and one of my friends had a personal joke running on the bit where Vader says, "No Luke, I am your father." We shouted out: "Another reason for birth control" and cracked up the whole crowd.

But anyway my confusion as a kid was why Leia had to be Luke's sister, surely the hero always got the girl smile

lol lol That made me crack up, for some reason.


Well.....there's Dark Vader, and life-saver....and I could never get the numbers in C3-PO in the right order! Like 3P-CO....lol! :lol:I wasnt interested in Star Wars when I was little, and the only thing I remember from it is Vader,Yoda, Chewie, R2 and a little more. But I do remember Vagly(hope I spelled it right!) a man with T-shaped helmet, and a cool, raspy voice. Then when I was older and saw Episode 2......there was a strange connection between me and Jango the second I saw his helmet on him. I then looked into all the movies, and I was fascinated with Boba Fett. I've loved him ever since.

Re: What misconceptions of Star Wars did you have as a kid?

Here's something rather emabarasing.  I first saw star wars when I was about five, and I was really into robots.  When I first saw Darth Vader I said "Is that a robot?'  My dad said "Well, he's a half robot"  At first I thought he meant that Vader was a half a piece of robot, and I thought "he looks like a whole robot to me."  Stupid, huh? 

Also, when I first saw empire strikes back, I thought that perhaps Boba was a robot. (Hey, I was only 5, go easy on me.)
