head for the exit. As they are about to go through the
door, suddenly everyone scatters, revealing DARTH MAUL
standing in the doorway. CAPTAIN PANAKA, PADME, and HER
TROOPS back away. QUI-GON and OBI-WAN step forward.
: (Cont'd) We'll' handle this...
TWO JEDI take off their capes and ignite their laser
swords. DARTH MAUL takes off his cape, and ignites his
laser sword. Both ends of the sword light up.
At the far end of the hanger, SIX WHEEL DROIDS roll
in and transform into their battle position. ARTOO calls
ANAKIN's attention to the DROIDS. The JEDI begin to
fight the Sith Lord.
: Oh, no...
DROIDS begin to advance and start firing on PADME and
: (Cont'd) We gotta do something, Artoo.
whistles a reply. Suddenly, the ship's systems go on,
and the ship begins to levitate.
: (Cont'd) All right, thanks Artoo! Great idea! I'll
take over. Let's see...
steers the ship toward the DROIDS. He pushes a button,
and the ship begins to shake.
: (Cont'd) Where's the trigger? Oops, wrong one.. Maybe
pushes a second button, and the lasers begin to fire,
wiping out several DESTROYER DROIDS. ARTOO whistles
: (Cont'd) Yeah, all right. "Droid blaster."
JEDI are engaged in a fierce sword fight with DARTH
MAUL. They have moved into the center of the hanger.
While the WHEEL DROIDS are momentarily distracted by
ANAKIN, CAPTAIN PANAKA, PADME, and HER TROOPS exit into
a palace hallway.
The WHEEL DROIDS start firing at ANAKIN. There are EXPLOSIONS
all around him.
: (Cont'd) Oops...shield up! Always on the right...shields
always on the right.
flips several switches, and the after-burner ignites.
: (Cont'd) I know we're moving. I'll shut the energy
fighter rockets out of the hanger. ARTOO and ANAKIN
hold on for dear life.
: (Cont'd) Oops!! Wrong one.
: (Cont'd) I'm not doing anything!
: (Cont'd) I know...I didn't push anything.
SITH LORD's moves are incredible. He is fighting the
TWO JEDI at once, flipping into the air, outmaneuvering
them at every turn.
