Homage to ET in Revenge of the Sith?

Recommended Posts

I may be going a little looney (thank you finals!) but did anyone else notice the tongue-in-cheek reference to ET in ROTS?

The part i'm thinking of is where Yoda takes off in his escape pod on Kashykk after saying bye to Chewie and his buddy. Not only did Yoda's pod seem to be a mini version of the mothership in ET, but the way the scene was filmed and how JW scored Yoda's theme to rise majestically as the pod takes off seems too coincidental. I loved it! The only difference seems to be that the theme kind of tapers off, not fully realizing its potential, but I think that it worked well with the scene - since Yoda's departure isn't really joyful or optimistic.

So am I being too fan-boyish or did anyone else notice this?

BTW - loved ROTS and the score.

Just saw it again, and I think it was indeed a nod to ET. The closeup of Yoda as the door closed, the Wookies tilting their heads back, and the angle of the camera as the ship lifted off all seemed pretty intentional

I thought it was funny, but for the wrong reasons. Lucas had to rip off one of the finest film moments ever to make his better... It was good, but cheapened the experiences of both the original and "homage" versions. I almost expected Chewie and Yoda to touch fingers at some point, but was disappointed when they didn't...

Let's hope that for once, please for once a complete bootleg surfaces à la Die another Day. Otherwise we can wait another twenty years for complete Indiana Jones, Harry Potter and Star Wars scores. :shakehead:
