Opening crawlEdit

Episode III
War! What is it good for?
It is a DARK TIME for the 
GALAXY. As the Clone Wars
rage on, the Jedi fight
desperately to restore peace
and justice to the REPUBLIC.

Back on NABOO, Anakin 
Skywalker … etc. … marital
problems … Luke and Leia …
blah blah … Jedi Academy …
tempted by the Dark Side.

Obi-Wan Kenobi … blah blah
blah … battles to save … ya de
ya de ya de ya … against all
odds … YAWN … only hope …
yeah whatever … certain DOOM
for the GALAXY… 

Enough already…


Several years after the previous movie, Obi-Wan gets captured by Emperor Palpatine and taken to the Death Star. Meanwhile, Anakin Skywalker, takes Luke and Leia to Yoda to be trained as Jedi. On the Death Star, Palpatine inspects the Clone Troopers, who do not look alike or have matching boots. Palpatine sends Darth Small (a miniature Darth Vader) to watch over the Clone Troopers. Anakin and the Jedi Masters, including Mace Windu, go to meet Palpatine to discuss Obi-Wan's rescue. Palpatine then returns to the Death Star and awaits Anakin to come rescue Obi-Wan.

When Anakin finally arrives, Palpatine tells Anakin that if he just puts on the Darth Vader helmet, that he will be the ultimate master of the Force. Mace Windu and Hoowot Wywen, another Jedi, come to Anakin's aid but after Obi-Wan is rescued, Anakin accidentally steps on Obi-Wan's foot, which triggers a fight. The fight ends with both of Anakin's arms being amputated by Obi-Wan. When Padmé arrives to scold Anakin, he quickly takes the Darth Vader helmet and puts it on. The end of the movie has Palpatine and the Clone Troopers singing and dancing Mary Poppins' "Step In Time."
