As Jorg eased a breath, he looked around. "Where is she?" Vizan's face fell. Jorg grabbed his wrist."She can't be, I was there longer. It should have been me." Vizan bowed his head.
" She wasn't strong enough. They couldn't save her."
Jorg swallowed hard against his grief." How long?" His brother took a shakey breath."She didn't last the night. That was two days ago." Vizan turned as his brother's grief became plus then he could bare. Jorg caught at his brother's sleeve, his eyes wide with pleading. " They have to be lying. They have to be."

Notes and Observations of "STAR WARS: EPISODE IV - A NEW HOPE"

*According to the movie’s opening scrawl, Leia possessed the Death étoile, star plans that could “provide freedom to the galaxy”. Is that what happened at the end of the movie?

*Wow! R2-D2 really looks worn and old aboard the Organas’ ship, the Tantive IV. It is easy to imagine that he has been around for over three decades.

*Are the troops firing upon the stormtroopers, Alderaanian...

Republic Captain: *Unveils a miniature dummy paratrooper* This is Rupert. Now we're going to fly Rupert into Naboo, behind enemy lines, and we're going to drop him on the ground. When he does, he's going to do something extraordinary. *Hits a switch on the back of the dummy's head*

Tiny explosions occurred which looked like blaster shots.

Republic Soldiers: *Closing their eyes*
Republic Captain: Settle down now. We're going to do this with Rupert, and many of his fellow comrades. This will distract the Empire, and have them head away from the landing zones where the real paratroopers land.

Meanwhile,...

Remember in Attack of the Clones, Anakin tells Padme he hates sand? Nobody really understands exactly why he hates sand. Everyone thinks that it was a aléatoire statement that shouldn't have been in the movie.

But I see it differently. I see a slave boy who lived in sand all his life, finally freed of it. But his mother, still trapped in the sand, is tortured par a band of Tusken Raiders. When he tried to save her, she died in his arms with sand all around them.

Anakin definitely had a reason to hate the sand. It's quite sad not many people actually understand the reason, however.
