Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
(Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith)
For three long years the Clone Wars have torn apart the galaxy. Despite the skills of highly trained clone troopers led by Jedi Generals, the Republic fails to decisively defeat the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The battle burns brightest in the scattered fronts of the Outer Rim Sieges. As desperation grows and heroes rise on both sides of the war, the Separatists, led by Count Dooku and General Grievous, make an ambitious strike at the heart of the galaxy. Thus the stage is set, and events are put into motion that will culminate in the fall of the Republic, the end of the Jedi order, and the rise of Darth Vader...
The circle is now complete. With the Episode III of his STAR WARS saga, George Lucas puts an end to it, at least at the movies. REVENGE OF THE SITH presents as the hinge episode between the classic trilogy initiated in 1977 with STAR WARS (later renamed
A NEW HOPE) and the prequel composed of the two first episodes : THE PHANTOM MENACE (1999) and ATTACK OF THE CLONES (2002). By connecting the two trilogies, the film is answering to all questions left in abeyance during the previous episodes and still present in the fans' hearts. We are finally going to discover how the young Jedi Anakin Skywalker sinks to the dark side of the Force to become Dark Vador, the Emperor Palaptine's aid. Shoot entirely in numerical by the precursor on the subject, the film whose creation has begun immediately at the end of Episode II, reveals new worlds, new vessels (whose forms become increasingly significant regardless to the Trilogy), new vilains and new dress created by the talented Trisha Biggar. Terrestrial and spacial battles, epic combats with lightsabers whose apotheosis is only the final duel between Obi-Wan and Anakin, we are finally going to be the witnesses of the real turning of the clone wars revealed by Ben Kenobi to Luke Skywalker there is almost thirty years ago. How to resist ?
