Have you ever watched a Star Wars movie and realised that you didn’t notice something even though you’ve watched it a dozen times or more? I know a lot of fans don’t like the Sequel Trilogy of movies, but I actually do and I never noticed so many things that I noticed rewatching this last night.
One scene in particular – on Tatooine when Qui-Gon Jin and Darth Maul duel, I never noticed the hilt of the lightsaber that Darth Maul is using. Have you ever noticed how big it is? So he isn’t using the double-bladed lightsaber, he’s using one part of it which technically, is a lightsaber. Some people like to refer to his weapon as a sabre staff but I prefer to say double-bladed lightsaber.
Anyway, on Wookiepedia, it states that when his lightsaber was broken after the duel of the fates with Qui-Gon Jin and Obi-Wan Kenobi, he used it as a single lightsaber. Which is odd because he used it before that fight in his duel with Qui-Gon Jin on Tatooine.
Can anyone clarify this for me? Because I am only using the references online for this. I have no idea why it says that he used it as a lightsaber after the events of The Phantom Menace when he was using it as a lightsaber way before then.
I haven’t looked at the other two disks yet but when I get around to them, I’ll post about any odd things I notice or experience while watching. I will also (excitedly) blog about the extra content, whatever that is. I am not looking it up online because I want to surprise myself!
Till my next post, be safe and happy and I’ll catch ya later!
