Episode III Revenge of the Sith Screen Crawl

Remember way back to 1999, when Episode 1 first came out? Remeber the feeling ofexpectancy as you settled in to the comfy cinema seat to enjoy, nay RELISH the long-waited prequel of the legendary StarWars trilogy? And remeber the feelings of dismay and confusion that started from the opening screen crawl about taxation, trade disputes and blockades, and still hasn't ended? (I still can't figure out why the Trade Federation invaded Naboo,"A peaceful planet with no standing armies!", or if they are suppoed to become the Imperials or the Rebel Alliance).

Well(only 3 weeks late!) you can see the Episode III crawl here at


War! The Republic is crumbling
under the attacks by the ruthless
Sith Lord, Count Dooku.
There are heroes on both sides.
Evil is everywhere.
In a stunning move, the
fiendish droid leader, General
Grievous, has swept into the
Republic capital and kidnapped
Chancellor Palpatine, leader of
the Galactic Senate.
As the Separatist Droid Army
attempts to flee the besieged
capital with their valuable
hostage, two Jedi Knights lead a
desperate mission to rescue the
captive Chancellor...

All very nice but it sounds like some fruity Lucasian doctrine coming up. Obviously all the baddies ("Separatist" Droid Armies, Clone Warriors, Isengard, Mordor, etc) are dancing to the tune of Sauron, er, Palpatine / Darth Sidious, and will unite into one big baddy to assail the forces of good left in Middle Earth /the galaxy.
