Aayla Secura in Episode III

I saw this on another website:

George Lucas revealed that Aayla Secura will survive Episode III and won't, as originally planned, die on Felucia. Lucasfilm Ltd. also hinted that Aayla may, in turn, appear in an hour-long Star Wars Television series, in which production will begin in 2006. This television show will chronologically take place between the events of Episodes III and IV. Aayla Secura can possibly be a major player in this series, as she is one of the last remaining Jedi, apart from Yoda and Obi Wan Kenobi. Aayla will be reappearing in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

The theatrical release of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, as well as the comic book adaptation, shows Aayla Secura shot in the back by her clone troopers after Order 66 is delivered. They then surround her fallen body and repeatedly shoot her body as the scene ends.

While this would seemingly rule out an appearance in a television series, it is worth noting that the blaster fire used to disable Secura is colored blue and left no visible wounds - features only seen one other time in the film series. In the opening scene of Episode IV, a stormtrooper uses a blaster's "stun setting", producing a blue bolt to capture Princess Leia. As such, it is possible that this may also have been Secura's fate.

Do I believe it? Not really. It's kinda sucky that Aayla would die by getting shot in the back, but that was the general idea of the scene, I think. I think it's overly hopeful to say that she was "stunned", but I did find it weird that she had no visible wounds when she fell down. Her body was also shielded from view by a plant when the clone troopers continued to fire.

In other news: Felucia was an amazing looking planet.
