(mbc.net) In 1977 Lucas released his first Star Wars film which changed cinema forever and became the highest grossing film of all time then. He followed it with The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and then Return of the Jedi (1983).

In 1999, Lucas decided to go back to where it all began and start a new trilogy pre-dating the events of the first 3 movies. So this is the saga of how it all came to be...

In episode III of the prequel-trilogy; Revenge of the Sith- the final film of the series, Lucas brings the saga full circle, setting the stage for the first release of the saga; Star Wars: A New Hope.

After fighting a fierce battle along Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) and Republic forces to free Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) from the hold of Count Dooku (Christopher Lee), Jedi knight Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) is drawn into Palpatine's plans for expanding his dominion, with Palpatine playing on Anakin's existing doubts and fears.

How will Anakin reveal his secret marriage to Senator Padmé Amidala (Natalie Portman), the former Queen of Naboo, especially with the visions foretelling her dying during childbirth.

Especially with Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson) expressing his distrust of Anakin, the Jedi finds himself turning more and more to the Force for answers, only to find himself usurped by the temptations of its darker side. That is until Anakin is no more, and Vader is all that remains...
