February 22 2005

LFL Logo, Fox logo etc.

A Theta-Class Shuttle and three Fighters fly by the camera towards Coruscant.

Coruscant, late afternoon, the Republic Executive Office appears for a brief moment.

Palpatine (close-up, speaking very slowly, deliberately, looking straight ahead, watching the ballet)

...The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be... unnatural.

Anakin closeup (extremely focused on Palpatine's words)

Is this possible to learn those powers?"

Palpatine (close-up, matter-of-factly, facing Anakin)

Not from a Jedi.

A civilian shuttle turns over the Coruscant cityscape towards the Senate building.

Obi-Wan and Anakin are inside the Temple, walking down long steps.

The Council wants you to report on all The Chancellor's dealings.

MagnaDroids stand with two BattleDroids.

That's treason.

Palpatine standing up from his chair in his private office.

We are at war, Anakin.

Outer-Space battle then a explosion where CloneTroopers die.

Anakin moves to take a seat in The Chancellor's private viewing box in Galaxies Opera. We see huge spheres of water levitating over stage with dancers inside them.


...Very dangerous putting them together...

Palpatine in his office, patting Anakin's shoulder.

I don't think the boy can handle it...

Mace & Obi in the gunship over Coruscant.

I don't trust him.

TriDroids blazing guns, Republic Fighter exploding, debris flying by.

Palpatine in his office (concerned).

I need your help, son.

Palpatine walks away from Anakin:

I'm appointing you to be my personal representative on the Jedi Council.

Anakin standing in the middle of the Jedi Council room. We see him from behind. Ki-Adi-Mundi and Plo-Koon appear holographic with other Jedi Masters present.

You're on this Council, but we do not grant you the rank of Master.

Kenobi looks away from Anakin's reaction.

ANAKIN (close-up, angry, shocked):


February 23 2005

INTERIOR - Padme's Apartment. Bedroom.

ANAKIN (to Padme, bitterly):
Obi-Wan and The Council don't trust me.

Huge gun with clone crew, large explosion aboard ship.

Palpatine (V.O.):
Learn to know the dark side of the Force...

Anakin grim and focused, listening; then with Padme, at night on the balcony.

PALPATINE in his office (forcefully):
... And you'll achieve power greater than any Jedi.

Anakin briefly fighting Dooku and then the posse entering private office.

Music stops.

The Jedi ignite lightsabers.

You're under arrest, Chancellor.

Palpatine in his chair carefully controlling his anger.

Are you threatening me, Master Jedi?"

CLOSEUP - Light Saber hilt snaps to Palpatine's hand with audible click.

The next following moments, 10 drum beats and no other sound - one for each short (second or two) scene.

• Jedi Posse enter, this time Sidious jumps in its direction from behind (over) the camera. We only see Palpatine's back; then Mace in defensive pose.

• The Grievous Fighter flys away from the planet Utapau;

• Obi-Wan in huge control room on Utapau, totally surrounded by BattleDroids, MagnaDroids, and Grievous;

• Jedi Crusiers fighting in close quarters, one of them falling down smoking heavily;

• Bail Organa shouting from a speeder with blaster shots flying by;

• Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi Fighter flying over Utapau;

• Anakin Skywalker hanging in the elevator shaft;

• Camera flying down to Mustafar surface;

• The Utapau Duel: Grievous versus Obi-Wan Kenobi; Grievous is seen from behind only; his fighter and some rocks in the background.

• Snail Tank speeding on and closing in to the camera; Wookiees jump off it, one of them straight on the camera.

LONGSHOT - Pillar of smoke over The Jedi Temple.


February 24 2005

Music returns.

Emperor's voice from the Original Trilogy.

Every single Jedi is now an enemy of the Republic...

During this line, brief scenes are shown: Sidious' not so pretty face, Obi-Wan looking anxiously at droids closing on him, then Mace with saber and Palpatine's back (his hair indicates strong wind), then Yoda with clones behind his back - aiming blasters at him.

Chewbacca (close-up), roars.

Th Rebel Blockade Runner: Tantive IV flies by and towards a planet.

Do what must be done.

During this line: Anakin Skywalker looks very dark and dangerous, hooded in robe, then leading ranks of troopers (shot first from high above and then from ground level, closing to the camera).

PALPATINE (cont.):
Do not hesitate...

During this line: Aayla Secura surrounded by clones who aim blasters at her....

PALPATINE (cont.):
Show no mercy...

Ki-Adi-Mundi also surrounded by clones; they open fire and he tries to block shots with lightsaber.

Then, Anakin Skywalker approaches the camera, probably in a Mustafar bunker, then cuts down two separtists.

OBI-WAN KENOBI (to Yoda inside the Temple):
Who could have done this?

Anakin Skywalker cutting a Neimoidian.

A very sith-like Anakin Skywalker, standing on the pillared balcony on Mustafar, in dark cloak and hood.

YODA (to Obi-Wan):
Twisted by the dark side young Skywalker has become.

Anakin Skywalker cutting another Neimoidian.

Threepio, leaving Padme on the balcony, Coruscant at night: "I feel so helpless...".

Then a montage:

• Dogfight over Coruscant. Jedi Fighter incoming.

• Padme crying. A shot of Anakin and Obi-Wan dueling in a large hall.

• Coruscant battle. Kashyyyk battle.

• Obi-Wan and Anakin exchange lightsaber blows in a narrow corridor, with sparks flying off the walls.

• Sidious shooting Force Lightning at a surprised Yoda.

• Obi-Wan with hands outstretched for a force push, determined and tight, like in a contest "who's stronger in The Force".

• JuggerNaut 10-Wheeled Tank shooting rockets straight ahead.

• Outer-Space battle with R2D2 close-up.

• Obi-Wan jumps back, down to the circuit/pipe hanging over a lava river.

• Anakin Skywalker with lava in the background.

• Obi-Wan Kenobi with lava in the background, shouting very dramatically, almost through the tears:

OBI-WAN KENOBI: You were the chosen one

• Outer-Space explosions.

• Sidious throwing Senate pods with The Force. Yoda avoiding them and rolling over Senate chamber in the background. Sidious with lightsaber close-up, with a very sinister smile or laugh.

• Craft flying over water, possibly on Kashyyyk; fountains of water arise.

• Huge wave of lava falls over a pipe on Mustafar. Obi-Wan and Anakin duel on the balcony. (The same place where Anakin stood earlier, Sith-looking).

• Yoda looks up at the camera, close-up. Then a shot of Mace swinging his saber and kicking or falling back.

• Anakin and Obi-Wan exchange lightsaber blows in mid-air, flying over lava on long cables.




Shot from their left side, aboard the Star Destroyer: Vader with folded arms across chest with The Emperor staring straight ahead.


February 17 2005

In the beginning of the trailer, passing across the screen, is a THETA CLASS shuttle. It is accompanied by three fighters. These are brand new fighters for the Star Wars films.

From behind, the new fighters look almost like TIE fighters. For half a second before they move past the camera (with the planet Coruscant close in the background) you can actually see craft have longish fuselages. They look like Jedi Fighters with open wings, but unlike the Jedi starfighters, these fighters have two engines located vertically, not horizontally.

Also a word of note from the trailer: "Blue-Eyed Yoda". It's the reflection of Force Lightning. Yoda is not blue.

TALKBACK on the MF boards
