After three long years of relentless fighting, the Clone Wars are nearly at an end. The Jedi Council dispatches Obi-Wan Kenobi to bring General Grievous, the deadly leader of the Separatist droid army, to justice. Meanwhile, back on Coruscant, Chancellor Palpatine has grown in power. His sweeping political changes transform the war-weary Republic into the mighty Galactic Empire. To his closest ally, Anakin Skywalker, he reveals the true nature of power and the promised secrets of the Force in an attempt to lure him to the dark side.
While the prospect of Robert Zemeckis, Steven Spielberg or Ron Howard directing any of the Star Wars prequels is certainly intriguing, it isn't known if they would be working strictly from George Lucas's scripts, or if they would have co-written the films with him. George Lucas did write Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith by himself, but he enlisted the help of co-writer Jonathan Hales on Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones. We'll never know if the prequels would have been received better by fans and critics alike had Robert Zemeckis, Steven Spielberg or Ron Howard been involved, but it's certainly an intriguing thought to ponder.
George Lucas made headlines last week, when he revealed that Disney didn't want to implement any of his Star Wars ideas into Star Wars: The Force Awakens, after he sold LucasFilm to the studio for $4 billion back in 2012. It isn't know if George Lucas will ever reveal what his vision was for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and the sequels that will follow, but we know he had been planning these movies for over 30 years. Last December, a 1983 interview with Mark Hamill surfaced, where the actor said that George Lucas was planning on making a sequel trilogy in 2011.Read More

"Once more, the Sith will rule the galaxy." So said Darth Sidious upon the turn of Anakin Skywalker to the dark side, and he was right (for awhile...). Only this time, they'll do it in 3D. Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, in all its Order 66ing glory, will make its 3D debut at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, coming April 16-19, 2015. Fans will be the first to see this long-awaited, big-screen 3D conversion by Lucasfilm, completed with care for the look of the original movie while taking advantage of 3D's stunning possibilities.
Revenge of the Sith was originally released in 2005, and brought the Star Wars saga full circle with an action-packed, visually-stunning, emotional story. The film sees the final machinations of Darth Sidious' evil plot come to pass - and features lots (and lots) of lightsaber duels, dogfights, and Clone Wars battles. With all this, Revenge of the Sith 3D promises to be a great experience, and one that even a Sith could love. (Anakin versus Obi-Wan in 3D, anyone?) But that's not all - all the Star Wars films will screen at Star Wars Celebration, including The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones in 3D. Not a bad way to brush up on a galaxy far, far away before a certain new movie releases on December 18, 2015...Read More
That '70s Show star Topher Grace wanted to learn how to edit film, so as an exercise, he took it upon himself to make a one-film cut with footage from the three Star Wars prequels, which includes Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. What resulted was an 85-minute sci-fi adventure that is lean, mean and has been quite enjoyed by those who've seen it. It was never meant to be released outside Topher Grace's circle of friends, but that might have changed after a couple years being asked repeatedly about it. We don't have a confirmed release date for Star Wars: Episode III.5, but we may finally get to see it as Topher has cut together and released a teaser trailer, which helps to remind fans why they love this franchise in the first place. Take a look.
Star Wars: Episode III.5 basically cuts out all the boring parts of the movie, which means most of Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. It is unclear if this cut will make it into theaters. The more logical conclusion is that Topher Grace will show it to a select group of fans at this year's Comic Con 2014.Read More
