Re: How long did the Clone Wars last?

Obi-Wan was 20-30 years old in TPM. So i'm pretty sure he was older...

Re: How long did the Clone Wars last?

What he didn't look that old? he hardly looked out of his teens. hmm

Re: How long did the Clone Wars last?

it should be 5 but the star wars franchaise says three.which seems a very short time for a society to change so dramatically

SF is what life is all about.

Re: How long did the Clone Wars last?

I am not sure how long it lasted but in film terms it has not lasted too long.

I wish that George Lucas would stop making stuff about the Clone Wars and move onto the next thing regarding Star Wars (I am getting tired of the Clone Wars)

Re: How long did the Clone Wars last?

Well three years of war is an awfully long time, on a day by day basis.

Agreed.

Life is complex-It has both real and imaginary components.

Re: How long did the Clone Wars last?

in a way its started 23 years ago with the trade federation blockade of naboo.

I like to know the characters' ages too. It is interesting though if he was in his mid fifties in "A New Hope", why they picked a 97 year-old actor, Alec Guinness, to play him instead of a younger actor.


If you read the Kenobi book you learn that he intentionally exposed himself to Tatooine's twin suns in order to cause himself to appear physically older and more weathered as part of his disguise. So while he is 19 years older in episode 4 than he was in episode 3 it makes sense that he was played by the then 62 year old Alec Guinness instead of an actor ten years younger.

Also you have to keep in mind that when episode 4 was filmed the timeline of episodes 1-3 wasn't firmly established even in George Lucas' own mind.

Re: How long did the Clone Wars last?

Great points. Which Kenobi book?

Re: How long did the Clone Wars last?

pretty much says explicitly38-39 months in the new essential chrono book that has been updated to clone wars series (only to season 5 no _L_O_ST__MI__S_SI__O_N_S).check it out OH yeah he (Obi-wan) was born 52 yeras prior to the battle of yavin)so minus 19 yeras makes him 33 @ the end of ROTS and makes him 29 @ the end of AOTC and 19 @ the end of TPM end of story period.
