Trivia

Gary Oldman had agreed to be the voice of General Grievous, but pulled out of the movie because it was being made using actors who are not part of the Screen Actor's Guild, of which Oldman is a member. George Lucas once quit the Writers' Guild, Directors' Guild, and the Motion Picture Association of America over a dispute concerning Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980), and has not been able to work with Guild actors since. The role was read by Duncan Young on-set, and finally voiced by Matthew Wood, who, being a Lucasfilm employee, submitted his reading under the name of Alan Smithee. See more »

Goofs

During the first part of the escape from the Invisible Hand, when the decks tilt, objects (such as R2-D2, for instance) lose traction and slide "downslope". This would not happen on a ship in which an artificial gravity field was in use. "Down" would always be straight towards the deck, no matter how the ship was oriented with respect to its exterior surroundings. The sliding objects on the ship behave as if the source of gravity was outside and below it. Of course, without internal artificial gravity, everything on the orbiting ship would be in freefall.

Anakin Skywalker: Master, General Grievous's ship is directly ahead. The one crawling with Vulture droids.
Obi-Wan: Oh, I see it. Oh, this is going to be easy.

The saga is complete.
23 January 2006 | by Lady_TargaryenSee all my reviews

Finally we have the episode3 of Star wars. So many things happens in this episode, that I need to make a summary of the things that happens. First of all, some years have passed since the Clone War. Anakin and Obi Wan are fighting as hard as they can, specially now that Palpatine was kidnapped by general Grievous, the leader of the droids army. Anakin finally menage to kill Count Dookan,( with Palpatine motivating him)and Obi Wan killed Gen. Grievous.

Anakin continues to maintain the marriage with Padmé hidden, but things starts to become complicated to him when he starts to have nightmares with Padmé dying when she gave birth .

Anakin becomes a sith and an apprentice from Darth Sidious, and even Padmé who could not believe that Anakin turned to be bad, is shocked by his behavior(as well as obi wan).

Anakin's looks are much better then episode 2(he is more similar to Luke) and R2-D2 has more participations in this episode as the others.

The clones executing order 66 has strong scenes, because seeing so many Jedis and Wookies being killed is heartbreaking for everybody who is a big fan of Star Wars.(specially when the little Jedi children are killed by Anakin's hands) This episode is the mark when the Empire begins and the Jedis fall. The only jedis alive are Yoda and Obi Wan, the first one stays isolated and the second one goes to Tatooine to give Luke to her uncle and to be watching him. (Leia and Luke are isolated from each other to be safe from the siths, and Leia stays with Senator Organa,who always wanted to adopt a little girl).

We also can see Anakin's body being destroyed in the fire, and for that reason he cannot live without the black and famous suit of Darth Vader, that nowadays is an icon for every fan.

Padmé only died because she gave up of living, since Anaking broke her heart. (By the way, she only dies because of Anakin himself) In his desire to make PAdmé alive, he went to the dark side and this is what makes her sad and heartbroke.(Palpatine,who is lord sidious tempted him with the offer of knowing how to produce life, and Anaking, being too much an ambitious person and angry with the jedi council that not trust him very much, became a sith.

R2 and CP3O has their memory erased, that's why they don't remember anything and never told Luke about his father.

*A Thing that I really don't like: 1-First, I personally think that Anakin surrendered too easily for the dark side, specially for someone who was full of doubts all the time. But in general, this the best episode from the new trilogy.
