Wish I could give away $4 billion

Not gonna lie, but I actually liked Darth Maul better than young darth vader. Count Dooku was cool with his curved lightsaber. The Old darth vader was cool as a villian, and is considered the all time greatest villian, but he couldn't entertain a lightsaber fight/move around like Darth Maul could.

^ I haven't watched Phantom Menace from start to finish since I saw it in the theater, but I've watched that scene a bunch of times over.

I think this is pretty cool and look forward to see Disney's touch on the Star Wars franchise. **begin nerd alert** I know this may not happen, but I'd like to see the story line of Knights of the Old Republic made into a movie. **end nerd alert**

Duel of the fates is still one of my all time musical pieces of a soundtrack and for those of you that are Darth Maul fans, the clone wars show does a good job showing what happened to him after his fight with Obi-Wan.

DM returned in the Clone Wars show. So if the demand is strong enough we might see Maul in the sequels.

I think the original trilogy lightsabre fights are more entertaining like This Guy says, even though some of his humor is... not sure how to put it.

The original trilogy lightsaber duels have more going on with them. In the first movie, Vader wasn't just trying to kill Obi-Wan, but prove he had replaced Obi Wan as master. Obi-Wan tried to be a distraction to let Luke and his comrades escape with the Death Star plans. Both fail: Obi Wan surpassed Vader by becoming one with the Force. And Vader WANTED the good guys to escape and go straight to the Rebel's hidden base.

Second movie, Vader was toying with Luke, trying to corner and convert Luke rather than kill him. Luke was trying to save his friends and avenge Obi Wan. Again, the fight didn't turn out the way either hoped. Vader lost Luke. Luke got his *** kicked, while his friends made their own escape and rescued HIM.

Third movie, Luke tries to save Vader and beat the Emperor. Not sure what Vader was doing other being forced to duel by the Emperor. The Emperor wanted Luke turned to the Dark Side and taking his father's place. Luke wins this fight, with Vader's help.

Compare that to the prequel fights. First movie, Maul tries to lead the Jedi away and separate them, so he can kill them and stop Amidala and company. Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan try to beat Maul. There's just not the same emotional investment in this fight, nor the others, IMO. The last duel in the prequels, between Obi-Wan and Anakin, just wasn't as compelling to me.

Dawg I don't care what anyone says; the lightsabre battles in the prequel are brilliant and are cooler than any from the classic.

If emotions and story told within a battle is important than Revenge of the Sith is the best ever. It had all the aforementioned qualities and bad ass action.

The duels in the OT are less acrobatic because they are between an old geezer who wants to die (obiwan), a guy whos more clunky robot than human (darth vader), and a young man who's just learning (luke). I'm not going to lie though - as great as the OT are from a story perspective, they look terribly dated. When i want to watch a star wars movie, i watch AOTC or ROTS.

Re: Walt Disney Company to acquire LucasFilm, release new StarWars in 2015

I am excited, especially since we've seen how good of a job Disney has done with the Marvel movies. Star Wars will always be a huge staple of my childhood, so for the franchise to last on, past Lucas and into the future, would be awesome if they are done right. I was disappointed a little in Episode I, but basically accepted it as the movie to set up the rest of the Episodes. Still, to think that there are more Star Wars movies on the way is cool with me!

Not only that, but maybe a resurrection with the Indiana Jones franchise as well. The last one was OK until they introduced aliens into it, and that kind of ruined Indy for me.
