    Unimpressive: (warning: spoilers, for the unimformed)

    "'Revenge of the Sith' Novelization Summary

    The book opens with Anakin and Obi-Wan returning from a space mission to find Coruscant under attack by a Separatist fleet under General Grievous and Count Dooku, and that Chancellor Palpatine has been kidnapped. They fight their way onto the ship, fight across the ship, and then fight Count Dooku, who is holding Palpatine. Obi-Wan is knocked out, and then Palpatine (whom we the audience have, finally, learned really is Darth Sidious, but Anakin doesn't know that) urges Anakin on in his fight with Dooku. Anakin kills Dooku in the duel. There's some more running around, and a confrontation with Grievous (who then escapes) before Anakin flies the remnants of the ship into a controlled crash on the planet. Anakin, Obi-Wan and Palpatine all walk away (though Palpatine's plan was to have Obi-Wan die in front of Anakin).

    Palpatine is calling for even more powers, and the Senate is prepared to give them to him. He wants, in particular, immediate and direct control over the Grand Army of the Republic and control of the Jedi. The Jedi, of course, don't want to let him have either, and are trying to find ways to stymie him. A group of Senators, led by Padme Amidala, is also trying to reign in Palpatine's powers, and presents him with a petition asking him to return his powers to the Senate (the petition isn't presented until very late in the book, though we do see the Senators meeting and discussing the problem several times earlier). Palpatine names Anakin as his representative on the Jedi Council, which makes everyone more unhappy and increases tensions.

    Grievous is discovered to be on an out-of-the-way planet on the Rim, and Obi-Wan is sent (alone) to bring him in. Anakin is annoyed that the "team" is being broken up (even though he's staying with his pregnant wife whom he expects to die, and even though he has a very important role as Palpatine's representative to the Jedi -- he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer, our Annie). Yoda is also sent out on a mission, to the Wookies' planet. The war would seem to be winding down, but Palpatine shows no signs of allowing that, and wants to turn the screws tighter -- he rejects Jedi calls for peace negotiations.

    Anakin has been distracted (through the whole book, basically) since he's had prophetic dreams of Padme dying in childbirth (and his previous dreams have always come true). Palpatine strings Anakin along with stories of great Sith knowledge, and the potential to save her life, and eventually reveals himself as Darth Sidious. Anakin returns to the Jedi Temple and tells Mace Windu who Palpatine really is. Windu immediately grabs the three strongest Jedi there, and goes off to "arrest" Palpatine. Palpatine tapes the confrontation (making himself seem weak and helpless), then kills the four Jedi and starts his immediate purge of the Jedi (getting Anakin to do much of the work at the Jedi Temple, backed up by clone soldiers, who across the galaxy are having their secret "kill all Jedi" orders revealed). Palpatine stuns the Senate the next morning with news of what he calls a Jedi attempt on his life, and declares the beginning of the first Galactic Empire.

    Obi-Wan and Yoda both survive, though no other Jedi are seen to live through the assault. They both make their way back to Coruscant, where Obi-Wan meets with a practically-in-labor Padme. Anakin has, at the same time, been sent off to yet another hole-in-the-wall planet to kill the remaining Separatist leadership. Obi-Wan rushes off to confront him, while Yoda will fight Palpatine simultaneously. Yoda is defeated by Palpatine but manages to escape (with the help of Senator Bail Organa). Padme had chased Anakin to his planet, and they are quickly joined by Obi-Wan. Anakin is jealous of Obi-Wan (who he thinks might have something going on on the side with Padme). Padme is left unconscious for reasons I no longer remember, and the two Jedi fight. Obi-Wan eventually wins, with Anakin left legless and armless near a lava flow. But Obi-Wan has to flee, because Palpatine is rapidly approaching in his ship (starships are used like taxis in this story). He runs away with Padme, who gives birth (to twins) and dies on board Bail Organa's ship. Organa will take the female twin, Leia, to raise as his own daughter. Obi-Wan takes the boy, Luke, to leave with Anakin's relatives on Tatooine (and keep an eye on the boy himself). Yoda insists that they not be trained as Jedi in any way whatsoever, for obscure Yoda reasons."


    $20 says Lucas makes Natalie Portman, the best young actress of our time, look like a total buffoon again. George, you can give the actors each other's lines so that they understand the context of what they're saying on camera. We've known the basic plot for 20+ years now, and the exact movie for the last 2 years. You're not spoiling anything, and you might (accoring to Natalie Portman, Terrence Stamp, Obi Wan, and the tour manager from Wayne's World 2) improve upon the acting a bit. Moron.

    There all great actors (Portman just won a Golden Globe award yesterday for her role in the movie 'Closer').

    Sometimes 'SW Dialogue' is not the easiest of lines to deliver on screen for some actors.

    Not to worry for Sith, Lucas hired a 'Dialogue Coach' to help the actors deliver their lines. Go to www.starwars.com and read all about it.

    Well, I guess there goes my hope that these would be included on the "Episode III" DVD...

    The New Revenge of the Sith Trailer Description
    Source: ComingSoon!
    TheForce.net got a description of the next Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith trailer. Here's a sample:

    The trailer begins with the following exchange:

    Palpatine: "The Dark Side of the Force is the pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural."

    Anakin: "Is it possible to learn this power?"

    Palpatine: "Not from a Jedi."

    We are then introduced to the political maneuvering of Palpatine, Obi-Wan and Mace Windu. All of them actually want to use Anakin as a pawn in their game (Palpatine makes Anakin his "personal representative on the Jedi Council" while Obi-Wan wants him to "report on all the Chancellor's dealings"). The first minute or so is surprisingly heavy on dialogue and consists mostly of shots of various characters speaking to each other (intercut with short glimpses of evil droids, space battles etc.). We even see how Mace Windu and three other Jedi attempt to arrest Palpatine (he grabs the lightsaber and confronts them). When Mace Windu tells Anakin "You are on this council but we do not grant you the rank of Master", Anakin loses it and joins the Dark Side (Sidious: "Every single Jedi is now an enemy of the Republic"). At least that's how the trailer makes it look.

    Hutt Wheels for Sale
    Source: E!Online

    Apparently, Jabba the Hutt's ride can be quite the chick magnet.

    "Oh, yeah, it's definitely proved useful in that," says Neal Ormond. "It's definitely comfortable on the inside."


    "It" is the JL421 Badonkadonk, a "completely unique, extremely rare land vehicle and battle tank," with a 400-watt sound system, a fully carpeted interior, a top speed of 40 mph--and a price tag of $19,999.95. The Badonkadonk, or Donk for short, is not street legal, and is not to be confused, although it has been, with Jabba the Hutt's sail barge from Return of the Jedi.

    Ormond, a Palo Alto, California-based designer, built the Donk with the help of like-minded associates, and without the help, or blessing, of Lucasfilm. Ormond says he hasn't heard a word from George Lucas' Star Wars base camp about his homegrown transport device. Yet.

    "No, I wouldn't be surprised if that's the next call," Ormond said Wednesday.

    The Donk quietly went on sale last October through Amazon.com. (It was available via Ormond's firm, NAO Design, even before that.) But all was relatively quiet on the battle-tank front until the last week, when it was "discovered" by Netizens, in general, and Jedi followers, in particular.

    "It is instantly recognizable by Star Wars fans...Everybody who sees it says, 'Oh, my God,' " says Philip Wise, Webmaster of the leading Star Wars fan site, TheForce.net.

    To be fair, and for the benefit of Mr. Lucas, it should be pointed out that while the Donk sure does look an awful lot like a sail barge, and while Ormond does cop to reviewing Jedi for inspiration during the building stage, the armored, hatch-equipped hulk also has been compared to a Dalek, usually when those doing the comparing are acquainted with the mechanized villains from the British sci-fi series Doctor Who.

    "The people who are slightly older than the Star Wars fans generally would reference Doctor Who," Ormond says.

    Around Stanford University, but mostly in the shack next to the headquarters of the famously infamous Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band, Ormond says the Donk is known as that thing that transports the drums.

    "Its regular job is pretty much within the band," says Ormond, a class of 2001 Stanford grad who still plays skins for the group. "In the evening hours, it's a party vehicle."

    Yes, back to the "chick magnet" part...

    Although it began life as a humble go-cart, the Donk seats up to five passengers and has "cozy" carpet and accent lighting. (Jabba's sail barge, after all, was a "pleasure ship," Wise says.)

    Despite featuring all the comforts of Tatooine, Ormond says he didn't seriously consider bringing Donks to the masses until Amazon approached him last fall. And now that he has considered selling them, he hasn't. Sold any, that is.

    Wise says he wouldn't be surprised if a Star Wars fan broke the bank to buy one.

    Perhaps a fan like Wise?

    "No, and I don't know anybody who would--and I know a lot of [fans], that's for sure," Wise says.

    Lack of demand isn't necessarily a bad thing. Right now, only one Donk exists. And since Ormond says it's going on three years old, he probably wouldn't sell that one. He figures it might take six to eight months once an order is made to complete a new custom one.

    In the meantime, Ormond's working on other "cool stuff," like, um, a flame-thrower. ("Not a destructive one," he promises.) What about something that levitates, maybe like a skyhopper?

    "The flying version is two or three down the road," Ormond says.

    Quick Tidbit About EPISODE III And A Certain Young Captain...
    Source: Ain't It Cool News

    Hi, everyone. "Moriarty" here with some Rumblings From The Lab...
    Iíve seen a lot of speculation on the net that the ďyoung captainĒ weíve heard mentioned who will be showing up in EPISODE III was going to be Han Solo. I really hated that idea. Made the universe feel even smaller. But the following anecdote suggests that itís someone else entirely, and it actually sounds like a lot of fun. Besides which, if this story is true, it suggests a playfulness that I think fans donít always give Lucas credit for.
    This is unsubstantiated, keep in mind, but itís really entertaining, so check it out:

    Small bit on "A young captain" from Revenge of the Sith (from Sydney Australia)

    The guy's name is Rohan Nicols. He's voiced a character in an pilot indie animation-comedy called "Big Space" about a bunch of Australians lost in space. You can check out his Bio right here.

    The 'young captain' in question is Captain Antilles, and I heard a a great story from the set about his first day of shooting.

    Apparently, he cut himself shaving right before he was due to shoot. No one in makeup could stop it bleeding - big cut! Then he gets his call to get into a buggy and onto the other side of the set where George is waiting for him. Guy's waiting all his life to be in Star Wars, right? And now he's bleeding to death from the chin. All over his Captains Uniform.

    He says to George... "Hi...here I am...but I cut myself pretty bad...so...what do you want me to do?"

    Prolly expecting to be replaced, he waits while George looks him over. Finally GL says...

    "Here's what we'll do. Get back to make up. I want cuts just like that one, but all over your face. What was your line?..

    [THE LINE WAS DID YOU MET WITH ANY RESISTANCE / NO SIR, WE MET WITH NO RESISTANCE]

    "OK, now your line is: YES SIR...WE MET WITH SOME RESISTANCE"

    Now this may be the most creative decision I have heard from GL in the entire making of these prequals! ;p

    Anyway, apparently there's going to be an action figure with Rohan's character with shaving cuts all over his face.

    That's a story worth having kids for just so you can tell them one day when youíre older...

    That's it

    James Earl Jones Voices Episode III Figure
    Source: ComingSoon!

    Darth Vader himself, or rather his voice, will be appearing at "Star Wars" Celebration III this April 21 to 24, when Hasbro and Lucasfilm Ltd. unveil the new Darth Vader Celebration III action figure.

    "Star Wars" fans from around the galaxy will gather in Indianapolis, Ind., for Celebration III, the event that will fill the Indiana Convention Center with Star Wars-related exhibits, shows, and entertainment. Presented by the Official Star Wars Fan Club, Celebration III will allow attendees to revel in the richness of the saga as they enjoy appearances by celebrities and behind-the-scenes talent from all the "Star Wars" movies, a display from the Lucasfilm archives, a "Star Wars" art show, the 2005 "Star Wars" Fan Film competition, and more. Additionally, attendees will be able to purchase limited-edition Star Wars Celebration III collectibles such as the Darth Vader action figure.

    None other than James Earl Jones, the legendary voice of Darth Vader, recorded new phrases exclusively for this special figure. The figure, a commanding Vader, is mounted on an exclusive base and in exclusive Celebration III packaging, and it... speaks!

    Jones' recorded lines for the figure are: "The dark side of the Force is strong with you;" "Your journey to the dark side is now complete;" "Prepare to experience the Revenge of the Sith. It is your destiny;" and the soon-to-be-legendary "Welcome to Star Wars Celebration III. Never will you find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy." There is also a recording of the iconic Darth Vader breathing.

    The figure is especially appropriate considering the May 19 premiere of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, in which Anakin Skywalker makes his inexorable transformation into Darth Vader, the villain whose chilling presence has captivated movie fans for decades.

    "Darth Vader is the villain everybody loves to hate, and hates to love," says Derek Stothard, Director of Toys at Lucas Licensing. "He's coming back in 'Episode III' and we're telling his story. We are closing the circle, and bringing the saga back to the beginning of 'Star Wars: A New Hope'."

    Darth Vader comes in a unique Celebration III package, mounted on a stand reminiscent of the interior of Cloud City. The packaging reflects well-thought engineering with collectors in mind. The voice mechanism can be operated without opening the carded figure. But even more important, the batteries that power the speaking voice can be changed from the back of the stand without disturbing the packaging. This is a Vader for the ages!

    While he's pleased with the special battery feature, "Star Wars" collecting authority Steve Sansweet is reminded that there is far more to this Vader than just a great presentation.

    "This figure takes one of the best lines of the movie and makes it into a virtual souvenir of Celebration III," says Sansweet, head of Fan Relations at Lucasfilm. "It will remind people of the wonderful time they had at the show, and of the sense of community that permeates Star Wars."

    Considering the "hive of scum and villainy" remark Sansweet adds "And fans can laugh at themselves, too."

    In response to the "feeding frenzy" over the "Jorg Sacul" figure at Celebration II ("Star Wars" creator George Lucas dressed as a Rebel pilot), Lucasfilm, Hasbro, and Gen Con LLC, which runs the show, have devised plans to make the new Vader figure easier to purchase and more evenly distributed.

    The Lowdown on the "Star Wars" Celebration III Darth Vader Action Figure:


    Sold at the Celebration III Store, planned for Exhibit Hall F in the Indiana Convention Center, April 21-24.

    Quantities divided among all four days of the show; some will be sold each day while supplies last.

    Price: $15, including tax

    Quantities are limited per person and badge type. Individuals with 4-day badges may purchase a total of 4 action figures, while supplies last. Those with 1-day badges may purchase 1 action figure, while supplies last.

    The Celebration III Store staff will punch badges for each purchase, one punch per figure. For example, a 4-day badge holder who purchases 2 figures may go back to the store and purchase 2 more at a different time. There will be specific areas marked on the badges for the punches.

    There's a spoiler concerning Padme's fate and the birth of the twins.

    Its very spoilerish so I'll let someone else do the dirty work in posting it here.

    THE DEATH OF PADME SKYWALKER and the Birth of Luke and Leia

    "If it's a girl... we were going to name her Leia..." says Padme as the birth of her daughter begins.

    A medical droid approaches Padme. "It's a boy," it says. Padme reaches out and touches the infants head.

    "Luke," she says. A second baby is baby is brought to her by the droid.

    "It's a girl," says the droid. But Padme is no longer her self - she is delirious.

    "Anakin!" she suddenly cries. Obi-Wan comforts her, telling her that Anakin is not there and that she has had twins.

    Padme begins to talk, drifiting in and out of consciousness. "Anakin, I'm sorry. I'm so sorry... Anakin, please... I love you..."

    Yoda enters the room and Obi-Wan shakes his head in sorrow. But then Padme regains consciousness for one last time and puts something into Kenobi's hand.

    "Obi-Wan, there is still good in him... I know... there... is... still... "

    As Padme Amidala Skywalker dies, Obi-Wan opens his hand and gazes upon a jaipor snippet.

    (For those who don't remember, the 'jaipor snippet' was that little thing little Anakin gave Padme aboard their ship after they left Tatooine in The Phantom Menace).

    Any possibility they don't realise that Anakin's alive as Vader for awhile? Why would you give the child you're trying to hide the name that they'd agreed upon?
