I was watching Episode 1 Commentary and noticed when they are discussing Duel of the Fates.. George said it would play onto Episode 3.

Any speculation?I was thinking the chanting had something to do with a Anakin/Obi fight,sort of setting a tone that he is really making the transition to Sith.I havent heard much about this...anyone else?

personally I really hated the use of duel of the fates in AOTC...I felt it cheapened the great way the piece was used in ep 1...

I don't think it was cheapened, but I do think it could've been used for a different scene. I'm also curious where & how this will be used in EP3. Maybe when (and if) Anakin faces Dooku?

more likely when he faces Obi Wan.

That song is wonderfully awesome, it needs to be in EIII when Obi-Wan fights Ani.

you know, i think maybe duel of the fates would be best for like the destruction of the jedi or maybe wen dooku is killed because i think the best type of music to be played wen anakin and obi-wan fight is the same kind of music that played wen luke and vader fought on the death star

Personally, I think a good musical cue for the Anakin v. Obi-Wan duel is a musical clash of the Imperial March (Vader's theme) and the Force theme (Kenobi's theme) with Duel of the Fates in the background (Jedi v. Sith theme). Maybe that will sound too hectic and not work out but thematically it makes sense.

I'm sure the Imperial March will be thrown in somewhere during the Anakin/Vader vs. Obi scene.

I dont think Duel of the Fates cheapened TPM,Jar Jar did but not Duel of the Fates.It was a pretty cool song IMHO.

It could be used when Palpatine reveals himself to be Sidious. I can imagine it starting when Sidous takes down his hood.

Understand that I felt it's liberal use in aotc cheapened the effect it had in tpm during a crucial moment in the film....

I love the piece...I just thought using it to see anakin on a speederbike lessened the power it had during the "duel of the fates" sequence in tpm.

The Overlord Returns,I do agree with you about Anakin Speederbike scene.Duel of the Fates should have been kept
to pivotal battle moments,if one wanted to reuse the piece.In TPM,it worked perfect for the ending.in my opinion.

I think it was great how they used it in Attack of the Clones, it was cool that they didn't have any music for Obi Wan vs Dooku and Anakin vs Dooku. :)
Duel of the fates worked so well, it really went well with a determined Anakin riding the speeder bike :)
I think we needed Duel of the Fates at some point in Attack of the Clones, it's kinda the big musical score of the prequels :)
