The first draft of the script for Episode 3 is due at the Skywalker Ranch this week, and we guess Hayden gets a peek soon after he arrives in Australia later this month to "hang out for a couple of months and train and travel." He starts shooting the third (and final) installment of the current Star Wars cycle with Natalie Portman and Ewan McGregor on June 22.

"No, not as far as I know," Christensen says. "It's not in the story if we begin from where we left off." So, no heavy breathing? No black mask? "None of that. As far as I know. But that's very little," he says. "George Lucas is notorious. He keeps it all very secretive."
