Sneaky "Episode II" Cast Shots Surface Online

SirSteve's Star Wars Guide has posted seven paparazzi-style "Episode II" cast photos taken on-location in Sydney, Australia. The shots are grainy but focused, suggesting they were shot by a photog blessed with an endowed zoom lens. Despite the picture quality, the shots reveal a number of costumes that will be on display in "Episode II." Many of the extras are sporting the latest in frumpy peasant ware, which suggests that the slaves seen in "Episode I" are making a return. If that's the case, perhaps George Lucas will take the next logical step and have Jar-Jar beheaded during a slave revolt (I can dream, can't I?). Death fantasies aside, the most interesting shots in this contraband collection are of Ewan McGregor. Ewan has traded that sissy Padawan braid for a beard and shaggy hair, which makes him look like the butt-kicking Jedi general Obi-Wan was always meant to be. Shots of George Lucas and Hayden Christensen are also available. To see the complete set, visit SirSteve's Star Wars Guide and click on the image links on the left-hand side.
