Fights & Battles

Fights & Battles

  • "Ep III definitively has the most lightsaber action of any Star Wars film." - RM
  • "The battles will be on an even larger scale." - RM
  • "We will see some glorious death scenes." - RM
  • "No rematch between Yoda and Dooku though both will have their own fights." - SW Insider
  • "The new fights are going to be amazing." - RC
  • "Some of the fights are incredibly huge." - RC
  • "There will be many intense fights." - NG
  • "Yoda will be seen in action sequences again." - RC
  • "There are going to be new styles of lightsaber fighting. Deconstructing the current Jedi style." - NG
  • "There's no question that we'll see Saber duels in Episode III that will definitely top the Obi-Wan / Maul duel." - NG
  • "We will see at least one character we've never seen fight before with a lightsaber, do so in Episode III. Also expect a new style from this or these characters too." - NG
  • "Anakin will cover just about every fighting style in Episode III." - NG
  • "Many limbs will be lost in Episode III." - NG
  • "The Epic duel between Anakin and Obi-Wan will be the longest lightsaber duel ever." - NG
  • "Female Jedi will fight in Episode III." - NG
  • We will see the younglings fighting, which will include Rick McCallum's daughter (Mousy McCallum)'s Jedi character. -NG
  • "Anakin is vulnerable on a slope." - NG
  • "There will be some spectacular battles." - JK
  • "The skills of the actors involved is awesome and the drama was real. Even without the music being added, the scenes are thrilling and frightening." - AD
  • The opening battle is entirely in space, but there will be land battles in the film. - RM
  • One character in the film will use two lightsabers at once "and he's bad." - RM
  • We will see female Jedi fighting in Ep3. - RM
  • So far no new styles of lightsabers, but we will see new styles of lightsaber combat. - PH
  • We will see many land battles and at least one is of the continuing Clone Wars. Ryan thinks it looks cool. -RC
  • The different fights involving Yoda, Dooku, Mace, and Palpatine (not necessarily linked to one another) are all very interesting and one in particular is "really cool." - DG
  • If the Jedi that die in the film are "real Jedi" then they will take some clones with them. -DG
  • A lot of people in Ep3 will be hit with a lightsaber the way Obi-Wan was hit in Ep2. -NG
  • There will be more than 2 people fighting in the confines of the Trade Federation ship fight scene. -NG
  • There are so many memorable fights aside from the Obi-Wan/Anakin duel, but Nick likes the one he cannot reveal. -NG
  • "Kit Fisto goes out like a #####." -NG
  • Kit Fisto's death is certainly less heroic than say, Mace, but Kit doesn't just fade away without any effort. I think Nick's comment was to tease the actor who played Kit Fisto. - PH
  • When asked if we will see any more beheadings like Jango in Ep2, Nick said "heads will roll in Ep3". -NG
  • Nick winked and gave a nod when asked if we would see double-bladed lightsabers in Ep3. -NG
  • We may see a naval battle (on water) in Ep3, but Pablo was noncommittal. - PH
  • The force powers seen in Ep3 are among those we have seen before. - PH
  • At one point during a duel, four characters will be involved. -OS
  • There are no plans for anyone to use a double-bladed lightsaber in Ep3. - PH
  • "Episode III has got everything the other films had and more! The movie is 60 to 70 per cent fighting. There's tons of fighting in this one." -NG
  • The Confederacy droids attack a lagoon-side tree village, with hundreds of Wookiees fighting back. The Wookiees are bolstered by clone trooper ranks and the heavily armored vehicles of the Republic. - OS
  • The noble Wookiee warriors must defend one of their lagoon-side tree cities from encroaching Separatist droid forces. - OS
  • One shot shows hundreds of Wookiees running out from out of cover, striking against Corporate Alliance and Trade Federation droids. - OS
  • It isn't all epic battles. In some cases, the Wookiee extras are guiding in helicopter traffic, loading supplies on landing platforms, or barking orders to clones and other Wookiees. In other cases, it's Wookiees leading clone troopers into the fray, jumping out from behind cover and charging forward, or recoiling from a near miss of heavy ordnance. - OS
  • "The first hour of the film is all fighting. The last hour of the film is all fighting. The middle is the gushy stuff." - GL
  • As the Clone Wars continue across the galaxy, many notable Jedi Knights are dispatched to distant battlefronts, keeping in touch with the command center on Coruscant via holographic link. - OS
  • "Artoo is an action hero in this one. He's Arnold Schwarzenegger this time. He's really tough and beats up a few battle droids. And, he saves the heroes again many times." - GL
  • Artoo gets the action hero role for one particular part of the movie, early on, and it's played for fun. - PH
  • Artoo joins in the fight on the bridge of the Trade Federation cruiser. - OS
  • Yoda has a much bigger part in this movie, and he will kick some butt. - RC
  • In Episode III, we'll get a sense of being in the midst of the Clone Wars. We'll see a variety of different battles, different types of warfare, and a wonderful selection and scope. - RC
  • Pablo wouldn't doubt that there will be a webdoc for the fights Nick Gillard has created. - PH
  • Tion Meddon's people are very much involved in some sort of fighting. Their planet is the site of a major battle. - PH
  • Mas Amedda is a bystander and/or participant in an action sequence. Sly Moore is not. Dar Wac gets an eyeful. - PH
  • About Mas Amedda's action sequence, Pablo says he faces danger exactly as you think a bureaucrat would. - PH
  • The Kashyyyk sequence looks to be one of the film's most memorable and breathtaking action sequences. - OS
  • The latter half of the film is very action-packed. - OS
  • "I think the stronger the bond between [Anakin and Obi-Wan] in the beginning, the more impact there is when they go the other way and fight at the end." - EL
  • The opening space battle is bigger than the Return of the Jedi space battle. - DW
  • There are battles between the tri-fighter droids and other midground fighters. - OS
  • "There's a lot of fighting and a lot of water and sweat for Obi-Wan." - NG
  • Bail Organa makes a hasty getaway aboard his speeder. - OS
  • As Episode III begins, intrepid Jedi Knights infiltrate the most secure areas of Grievous' flagship, to spoil his plans of victory over Coruscant. - OS
  • In one scene, Mace Windu recoils from a Forceful attack. - OS
  • Bail will have an action sequence, but no lightsaber fights. He will have a speeder and a blaster. - JS
  • Kashyyyk is one of the many battle grounds of the Clone Wars. - OS
  • There is intense action after the Clone War ends, but it's more of a personal battle and not a historic "Battle of ______" type of engagement. - PH
  • We will see some truly shocking lightsaber moves. - NG
  • The Anakin vs. Dooku duel is longer than their duel in Attack of the Clones, and it's much more intense. - NG
  • The Jedi younglings had a fighting sequence(s) to train for. - NG
  • Legs will be lopped off in Episode III, regular Monty Python type action. - NG
  • Some possible situations during the opening space battle were colliding/scraping starships, sacrifice ship to break through blockade, diving formation of assault frigates to save cruiser from swarm, shockwave causing havoc from large explosion of ship, shockwave bombs across surface of larger ship causing damage, shockwave bomb on droid fighters, tractor beams picking up ships to repair/collision, pockets of intense debris caused by explosion that heroes fly through, reinforcements dropping out of hyperspace to help less-than-fortunate ship, launching and docking tri-fighters/clone fighters, EMP bomb causing loss of power to large ships, out-of-control collision, vulture droids landing on large ships and attacking, leaking fuel ignited by ship passing, and combined ray attack. - Homing Beacon #112
  • "We all know that in [Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope] there are only four Jedi, so the remaining Jedi will undoubtedly be killed in [Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith]. I trained for two weeks to learn over 140 moves for one fight sequence that will be electrifying." - SLJ
  • On the fiery young world of Mustafar, a heat-blasted industrial facility serves as the backdrop for an epic duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. The grueling battle progresses throughout the structure, from expansive platforms to claustrophobic corridors destined to be scarred and pitted by the whirling blades of light. - OS
  • There's a big battle on Saleucami, but it's over for now. - JK
  • Anakin has learned much since his last battle with Separatist leader Count Dooku, as a fight aboard the Trade Federation cruiser shows. - Insider #80
