Episode III Logo


  • "...the third film is very, very, very dark. It's not a happy movie by any stretch of the imagination. It's a tragedy. Ultimately the final story is between Yoda, Obi-Wan, Anakin and the Padm?. It's really their story. Those four characters." - GL
  • "It still has to reach out to a specific audience, but it will be substantially darker than the previous films." - HC
  • "It's very dark and Shakespearean...and adult, and more violent than a Star Wars movie used to be." -SLJ
  • "Episode III will 'surprise, amaze and shock.' It will be the darkest of the six saga films it will tie the series together in 'unexpected and surprising' ways." - Sansweet
  • "Episode III is the last one, so no-holds barred now." - RM
  • "Armageddon will take place." - C2
  • The major focus is the breakdown in friendship between Obi-Wan and Anakin. - SW Insider
  • "You won't be disappointed in the script." - DB
  • "The script will bridge all gaps between the PT and he OT". - AD
  • "The story of Ep3 will be enjoyable as the conclusion of the saga. It is dramatic, believable, frightening, sad, moving, hurtful, and human. It is the missing key to a story fans have admired and remembered for so long". - AD
  • "It's a much more grownup film, with more attention on the characters and less on big monsters. The movie deals with people being nasty to each other and is much darker." -AD
  • "In one word, Ep3 is 'awesome'". - AD
  • Episode III focuses on the fall of the Jedi, the rise of the Empire and Anakin Skywalker's transformation into Darth Vader. -NG
  • Ep3 will have the same emotional depth as ESB. - RM
  • The story will move much quicker than the previous films. - RM
  • Ep3 is a "2-hour turn to the dark side". - RM
  • Pablo has a hard time believing some of the imagery will get a PG rating. Nothing is too over the top but in today's MPAA standards, some scenes are intense. -PH
  • There are some elements of the movie that push the limits of a PG rating but it is too early to tell what the final film will be or how it might be rated. -DG
  • Nick thinks it is possible for Ep3 to have a PG-13 rating. -NG
  • Ep3 will be the largest of the Star Wars films and will be the "shining point" of the prequel trilogy. - PH
  • Pablo knows the opening scroll text as it is in the script. The opening scroll will be important in Ep3 as it is in media res like ANH. -PH
  • While the feel of the movie is bridging the prequels and the Classic Trilogy together, Ep3 is also meant to contrast with them. -RC
  • Visually speaking, Ep3 will certainly be the best Star Wars film to cross the screen. -RC
  • Overall, Ep3 is more action-oriented but will still have its fair share of quiet, character-driven scenes. -DG
  • In one word Ep3 is "dark". -DG
  • Ep3 will answer many (if not all) questions, and will merge seamlessly with Ep4. -PE
  • Many old ideas and lore from previous Star Wars films were re-examined for their inclusion in Ep3. Some of these ideas will be incorporated into the film as intended from the start, some ideas will be modified from their original conception for the film, and some material will be cut and not make it into the film at all. The lava planet fits into one of those three categories. - PE
  • "From a certain point of view", nothing said in Ep3 will contradict anything said in Ep4. -PE
  • "Episode 3 will be excellent." -PM
  • Episode III will make you go back and look at Episode I and Episode II in new and different ways. There are small clues and hints in TPM and AotC that we may not have paid attention to, but which will become more important once we see Episode III. -PH
  • "Episode III also ties in beautifully with all the other movies. And when I read the script, I was really surprised by how emotional it is. Everyone working on the film took so much care with it. Nobody wants to get it wrong." -NG
  • "It's going to be the best prequel. I can't see how it won't be." -NG
  • After seeing Ep3, there will things (or persons) from Ep1 that will be viewed in a different light. -PH
  • Ep3 is really three stories running at the same time. One's much more dark than the others. -PH
  • This movie is huge. - RC
  • Rob Coleman says he's seen everything, and it's pretty intense. He'll be interested to see what kind of rating it gets. - RC
  • We're doing more models in Episode III than the classic films combined. - LP
  • There will be surprises in the film, but nothing on the scale of a "Sixth Sense/Unbreakable/Usual Suspects/Arlington Road/etc." twisty type of ending that forces you to go back and rewatch the whole movie from a new perspective. - PH
  • The most fluid area of the film right now is the middle. - PH
  • Episode III will not be such a dark film that there won't be any fun moments. - PH
  • "Episode III is such a historic film." - CF
  • "[Anakin's charred look at the end of Episode III] is some very dark imagery for a Star Wars film, probably making it the darkest Star Wars film out of all of them." - DE
  • Episode III is likely to be the most well-documented Star Wars film. - OS
  • The latter half of the film is very action-packed. - 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
  • Yes, [Revenge of the Sith] is very dark, alot darker than the other [prequel films]. - EM
  • "[Episode III] was much darker than the other two that we worked on. You can sort of piece it together, since it fits between episodes II and IV. Yeah, we worked very hard on it and I think it's great." - NP
  • "[The Prequel films] are all so very different, Episode III is very dark and much more demanding, we all know that Anakin becomes Darth Vader but to actually see this transition is very painful. So when you have such a dark story to work with it demands you as an actor to work harder. So even though I haven't seen the film yet I would suppose that the last one is my favorite." - NP
  • Episode III has got everything the other films had and more. The movie is 60-70% fighting. - Insider
  • There's not a lot of room for humor or lightness. - JL
  • Episode III begins in the middle of events that will stun the audience. - Insider #80
  • "... younger children especially should be warned that this is not your average SW film. Its alot darker. There's alot more scary stuff in it. Its brutal in places, and they should be aware of that." - Vanity Fair Article
  • "I think this is the film everybody's been yearning for." - RM
  • "For some people, the painful parts of the earlier films will start to make sense." - RM
  • "[For] fans who may have been disappointed, say, dealing with an 8-year-old boy when they wanted more adult story, this kind of fulfills everything." - RM
  • "I think [Episode III] will be PG-13, but with sufficient warnings.." - RM
  • "We never have any blood. But there is a lot of...interesting stuff." - RM
  • Revenge of the Sith contains the strongest emotional chords of any Star Wars film, most of them expressed by anguished Jedi characters. - Homing Beacon #127
