Episode III Logo


  • "Ep3 takes place 3 years or so after Ep II." - GL
  • Ep3 takes place 3 years after the events of Ep2. -NG
  • "Will we get to see an epic space battle right at the beginning of the movie." - RM
  • "When Episode III opens in May 2005, the Clone Wars will be just finishing as the film opens. The Clone Wars last for three years." - LFL Rep
  • "The Clone Wars would end at the beginning of the film, and it would then become very small and personal." -GL
  • The timespan covered over the course of Ep3 is similar to that of the other films. - PH
  • Expect the novelization about a month before the film comes out, as happened with episodes I and II. - PH
  • George is aggressively aiming for the two-hour mark for the film's length. - PH
  • The title for Ep 2 didn't come out until August 6 of 2001. Perhaps August of 2004 the Ep3 title will be announced. - PH
  • There will not be a trailer released in May. - PH
  • "One of the themes throughout the films is that the Sith Lords, when they started out thousands of years ago, embraced the Dark Side. They were greedy and self-centered and they all wanted to take over, so they killed each other. Eventually there was only one left, and that one took on an apprentice. And for thousands of years, the master would teach the apprentice, the master would die, the apprentice would then teach another apprentice, the master, and so on. But there could never be any more than two of them, because if there were, they would try to get rid of the leader, which is exactly what Vader was trying to do, and that's exactly what the Emperor was trying to do. The Emperor was trying to get rid of Vader, and Vader was trying to get rid of the Emperor. And that is the antithesis of a symbiotic relationship, in which if you do that, you become cancer, and you eventually kill the host, and everything dies." - GL
  • The Kashyyyk scenes take place in bright daylight. - JB
  • The latter half of the film is very action-packed. - 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
  • "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
  • Artoo gets the action hero role for one particular part of the movie, early on, and it's played for fun. - PH
  • The most fluid area of the film right now is the middle. - PH
  • "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
  • In October 2002, Episode III was to open with quick glimpses of many battles on many different planets to show the galactic scope of the Clone Wars. - OS
  • "We're really, really happy with the latest cut of the film, but we are about 10 minutes over where we want to be. The goal is to trim the feature to about two hours and fifteen minutes." - RM
  • Episode III is 60-70% fighting. - Insider
  • Episode III starts with a bang. The starfleets of the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems are locked in a jumbled brawl of lumbering capital ships and swift starfighters, exchanging fire high in the Coruscant atmosphere. - Homing Beacon #112
  • Episode III begins in the middle of events that will stun the audience. - Insider #80
