Quote for Sidious' ambidextrous skill and Luke's post ROTJ Power

If I remember correctly, wasn't there a quote of Nick Gillard saying something along the lines of this regarding Sidious' saberskill?;

"He can fight with both hands, he's that good"

^ Suggesting that he's so good with his dominant that he can fight with his other without much issue.


The other quote I'm curious on is when George Lucas said that after ROTJ, Luke would go on to become the most powerful Jedi.

Obviously this is contradicted by Mark Hamill saying the following as covered by Ant here:

http://www.killermovies.com/forums/f6/t647914.html

While some will argue it's not official it might as well be.

And no, I don't think we're not going to argue that a post-ROTJ Luke shown in Battlefront 2 is his prime where he struggles to lift a bolder and several smaller rocks when an early TCW Anakin is able to do this:

Anyways, I was wondering where there was a quote of Lucas saying it because during the somewhat mild backlash over his ROTJ Luke VS TPM Maul video, he said to people that he "guaranteed" people wouldn't be able to find a quote for it and I trust him on it. As I do a lot of things unlike certain other Forcecast members.

"The other quote I'm curious on is when George Lucas said that after ROTJ, Luke would go on to become the most powerful Jedi."

Yeah, that's perhaps the most well-known misquote / fabricated quote in Star Wars. Here's likely the quote where people took it and applied it to the EU, though:

"Anakin, as Skywalker, as a human being, was going to be extremely powerful," he says. "But he ended up losing his legs and an arm and became partly a robot. So a lot of his ability to use the Force, a lot of his powers, are curbed at this point, because, as a living form, there's not that much of him left. So his ability to be twice as good as the Emperor disappeared, and now he's maybe 20 percent less than him. So that isn't what the Emperor had in mind. He wanted this really super guy, but that got derailed by Obi-Wan. So he finds that, with Luke, he can get a more primo version if he can turn Luke to the Dark Side. You'll see, as this goes on, Luke is faced with the same issues and practically the same scenes that Anakin is faced with. Anakin says yes and Luke says no."

---

Anyway, with Sidious: "Pertaining to whether Sidious is right-handed or left-handed with a lightsaber, he's ambidextrous. He's just that good."

Yes Sidious' preferred lightsaber form is Jar'Kai. Its probably why he got defeated in duels against both Yoda and Mace.

There is, but why do you want it? The dude uses two sabers, of course he can fight with both hands...

I honestly don't know why Vader is inferior to Anakin Force-wise?

Did Anakin really become Force-weaker or his cyborg condition decreased his fighting skills?

I mean Yoda is so dwarfy and still is powerful. Midi-chlorians have the same size. You can't say Vader lost them on Mustafar. And even these midi-chlorians would multiply even if their count lowers because they are microscopic life forms.

We literally have a thread specifically for asking quotes. No need to always make new thread on these questions.

How is Jar Kai Sidious' favorite setup?
