I think it was pulled temporarily.

I visited starwars.com and came to a page that had a link to the trailer and offered non-hyperspace people to join, and also had a link to skip to the main website. I opened the trailer page, loaded it up, and stupidly closed it. Now when I visit the page, I can't get back to the trailer. And my history shows the actual link to the trailer, but starwars shows up with "page not found".

Here's the link to the trailer (before it was pulled):
http://www.starwars.com/hyperspace/member/episode-iii/release/trailer/teaser.html

I didn't make up the link. Thats what I was directed to and was saved in IE's history. You'll notice it comes to a "page not found".

no it is not pasted over. yoda never looked like he does now in AOTC. he is alot more green now. plus, Yoda never points his saber at someone in AOTC, he just fights. and i am pretty sure that is the emperor in that cloak. the only other sith guy in the movie is dooku and he gets killed most likely early on in the movie.

What was wrong with EPII? I am tired of hearing people complain about the story and the way the movie had come out. It is a fantasy action/love story and that is all it is. I keep reading where people would have done it this way or that way and to be honest, to bad, His stories have been good and he has stayed true to the original triliogy. I am tired of hearing people bash these movies that he has devoted the last ten years of his life to put out for us. Be grateful that he has done this and given us more Star Wars and quite whinning about the flaws of the movie and basically grow up!!

Oddly enough, you can download it at FilePlanet.com

Sure there is a wait (unless you are a subscriber), but its available and for free with no hitches.

Even more odd is that the trailer was available on FilePlanet on the 4th with no backlash from Lucas or anything. Kind of upsets me since it was suppose to be a big deal that only Hyperspace members were able to see it (without having to find a "special" link). Then I come to see the FilePlanet is offering it to anyone with a computer and internet connection.



thomasandrea-call - I fully agree. Lots of people whine and complain about EP1 and 2 thinking its the worst thing ever. Honestly, I loved them both. Some say they hate the love story part. Guess what folks, its meant to be like that in the first place. Anakin falls in love, marries Padme, makes Luke and Leia (without knowing it til later on). If there was no love in the story....how would you expect Lucas to explain Luke and Leia? Its an important part to the entire series.

Sure I think he went a bit overboard on the CG effects, but its probably him making up for what he couldn't do in the originals. Mind you, I'm a full supporter of the TRUE originals (before the SE crap), but I gaurantee that if Lucas had the technology back then (or waited til now to make the originals), they would be JUST as full of CG effects as the new ones (prequels).

And I don't want to hear anyone say anything about the acting. It was as good back then as it is now.

PS - Can't wait til April for Celebrations III and then May for the movie.

He's made several official announcements lately that there will never, ever be a third trilogy. ROTS is definitely the last one. He said he locked it up so no one can ever make any more SW films. There is absolutely NO CHANCE that Episodes VII, VIII, and IX will ever be made. There's going to be a TV show, though, but there's no details yet on when it will take place.

I love the trailer, I wrote about it in the No Spoilers thread cause I thought these were the same.

BTW, yes it is Sidious in one of the last few shots. He's holding the lightsaber that was revealed a few months ago on Hyperspace, plus only three people have red sabers in this film - Dooku, Vader (if he uses it), and Sidious.

hango fett

HF
Unless Lucas decided to throw us all for a loop - a VERY BIG loop - Palpatine and Sidious are one and the same, just with different clothes and names. If you'll notice, they're both usually on Coruscant, and never in two different places at once. I believe the "At last we will have revenge" scene takes place on Senator Palpatine's balcony. And from the trailer, it sure looks like Mace is fighting with a Sith in Palpatine's office.

About his teeth, though . . . I guess we've never seen them in TPM or AOTC, he usually smiled with his mouth closed. So it's possible that they're really nasty. They sure are sick in the Clone Wars cartoon, but that's obviously not the real guy. In ROTJ, though, I don't remember his teeth being so brown, like they are in the trailer. Maybe there's going to be a promotional tie-in with Crest White Strips? :D

WOW still tingling from just watching the trailer!!

How does Tantive IV fit into the film then? that was a bit of a suprise seeing 3PO in the corridor, just like on ANH!!

Also, is there a chance of at least one more teaser within the next few weeks? (we had three for Ep II) Or will we have to manage with the one we've got until the theatrical trailer in March?

Well, the first trailer for AOTC, "Breathing," seemed more like a teaser to the real teaser than actually a trailer. So that might be why they quickly put out two more. I doubt we'll see another one for ROTS until Spring.

As for the Tantive IV, it's Bail's ship isn't it? I wonder if Colton Antilles is the captain yet, but probably not. That reminds me though, if they're serving on the Tantive IV in ROTS, then the Droids cartoon never took place, since it could only take place between ROTS and ANH. Maybe they're only riding on it?

I will predict that ROTS will be a very different Star Wars cinematic experience.. The simple facts: the birth of Vader, the death of Padme, the birth of the Twins, the death of the Jedi, the birth of the Empire, the death of the Republic.. The pattern points to a cinematic experience not seen in 22 years in any Star Wars film; not since Return of the Jedi.. ROTS will eat away at your brain until you are forced to return to the theatre and watch it again and again, until the pain slowly diminishes away from your soul, and stops the ROTS from melting your being..
BE AFRAID, BE VERY AFRAID!!!!! :eek:

About Palpy/Sidious...I believe Lucas introduced Zam Wessell in AOTC so that the audience of ROTS would be familiar with the "Changling" race. I have an idea that Palpy is a changling. He alters his appearance to look like human Palpy but under that cloak is the true Darth Sidious. He doesn't allow himself to be seen because he is hidious. This is just an idea...so don't bash it too hard!! (remember it takes energy to stay changed into one's "other form"... and also...notice the difference in Zam's voice from the times that she's a creature to the times that she's a human?? Doesn't Palpy's voice seem to vary from Chancellor Palpatine to Darth Sidious???? I think it does.

I'm not so sure Anakin's gonna be using force lightning. Personally, I think it would kill the continuity, seeing as how Vader never used it. Then again, watch Lucas have Darth zap Ozzel and Needa to death rather than choke them in the super, ultra mega edition of the trilogy (in which Greedo STILL shoots first). :rolleyes:

11-13-2004, 08:50 AM
Ok, Tagmac, not to say you are wrong, or right, but we all know video games slightly differ from movies.

On the other hand, Vader wears a meatl suit. Electricity conducts via metal. Therefore, he may not be able ot use the lightning as Vader. But as Anakin, he might be able to and will in the movie. Again, just pure speculation.

TheDarthVader
11-15-2004, 01:50 PM
Kidhuman, exactly what I was about to write. Darth Vader is about 75% machine/metal and 25% human. I doubt that he is able to cast lightning due to restrictions of the suit. He'd probably kill himself!

We really won't know until ROTS, if at all. But I bet that he knows they're the same, that way he wouldn't kill Palpatine, who is commonly known as the leader of the Republic, which is (obviously) against Sidious, Dooku, Grievous, and the CIS.

Slicker
11-16-2004, 01:00 PM
I'm not a fan of Ep. 2 so I've only watched several dozen times but doesn't Dooku mention to Obi-Wan that the Senate is controlled by a Sith. If so aren't there only two Sith and if Dooku's one then that would only leave Sidious. Like I said I'm not big on Ep. 2 so if I'm wrong then call me out.

TheDarthVader
11-18-2004, 01:07 PM
Well, I guess it is hard to draw a conclusion by what Dooku said in AOTC. He only said that the senate was controlled by a sith lord, Darth Sidious. This does not have to imply that Dooku knows Sidious is Palpatine. Sidious may have told Dooku that he is "pulling all of the strings" in the senate and not that he is Palpatine. I keep thinking "Why would Sidious reveal himself to anyone?" I don't believe he would ever do that...not until ROTS anyway. :)

Kidhuman
11-18-2004, 05:23 PM

OK, first of all, glad to see so many people still posting here (this is the second time I come back, only I forgot the password to my former alias Darth_Setnom) and now on to what I had to say...

On the identity of that dude in the end of the trailer I think it IS Palpatine...

"Why is that??" well because their faces are so similar... Same chin, same hair, same old man skin...

"yeah but what about the eyes? did you notice he has red eyes? Palpatine doesn't have red eyes!!!" Sure, but neither did Anakin. Darth Maul did though. So here it comes. I think this might be one of those annoying side effects of "Dark-Sideine". My theory is that your body is affected by the negative energy of the dark side, and your eyes are the indicator that you've completely embraced the dark path. See Darth Maul had no conflict. No question in his mind. He was a talented killer, and a faithful disciple, completely devoted to the Sith. But he didn't have the wits or subtlety of Count Dooku, and he didn't give a damn about the Republic or anything he was a Sith who obeyed his Master... Count Dooku, on the other hand, probably never was a fanatic like DM, because he probably was chasing the idea of power but still had some good in him. He wasn't just doing it for the power, he believed in changing the Republic for the good... And then there's Anakin. The boy always had it in him. The power, and the Jedi Philosphy of Dooku, mixed with Darth Maul's devotion and lust for action and a good brawl. Boy did he want to prove to the universe (and Padme) how good he truly was. And to hell with the Jedi and their stupid code, Lord Sidious would not put a leash on him (or would he???) like they did. So then he snaps. Loses it. And embraces darkness. Enter DM's eyes... Finally there's Palpatine. He is just the perfect Sith. His eyes will only change when he's entered battle because he's releasing all of his power, and evil. When he isn't, he remains calm, under control, and never loses it. His plans are known by nobody else than himself. But he has the power to kick some serious behind. And he knows this... He may not be as powerful on the midichlorian scale as Anakin or even some Jedi. But he's been building up. And he finally explodes, which ultimately damages his own body more than age itself.

So that's my theory, sorry it is a long thread but the ideas just kept coming to my head!! It's good to be back again...

TheDarthVader
11-24-2004, 10:36 AM
That guy has to be Palpatine/Sidious! (Oh and welcome back) Anyway, one reason I know is because they showed Palpy's lightsaber on hyperspace. The one in the trailer is EXACTLY like it. Two, not only do Palpy's eyes change, his teeth are sharp and jagged, and he has long fingernails! So I still say that Sidious has the power to alter his appearance. Maybe he is not a changling but alters himself by using the dark side of the force.

About his teeth: they could've been like that since TPM, or before. I don't remember Palpatine or Sidious ever smiling with their teeth bared. It's entirely possible that Palpy's teeth have been gross for a while. Look at the Clone Wars cartoon when Dooku talks with Sidious's holograph - his teeth are disgusting, Genndy must've been onto something.

About his fingernails - I didn't see them as too long but maybe I just didn't notice it. However it's not like he couldn't just stop cutting them.

I don't know whether or not he can alter his appearance, but I find it unlikely. In ROTS it seems like something horrible will happen to him to cause him to lose his hair and eyebrows and turn greenish and look sickly. I'm betting that whatever happens to Anakin also happens to Palpatine. Maybe he rescues Ani form the lava, but gets some on himself?

Possibly Palpy using the force to heal Anakin drains his body of his life force and distorts his features.

Interesting... So do you think Palpatine feels Lord Vader is important enough to save his life by using his own powers?? (I mean duh, he's The One... or so it seems)... and on that note, am I the only one who thinks Darth Vader exists BEFORE the suit? I mean it was a young Jedi named Darth Vader who helped the empire hunt down and destroy the Jedi, not some twisted and evil "more machine than man" guy...

Oh and back on my theory (:rolleyes:), I think the fact that Anakin's "Darth-Maulish" eyes are shown right after Sir Alec Guinness' line "seduced by the dark side of the force" is a way to show what happens to boys who choose to walk the dark side rather than follow the good old Jedi Code.

Finally, even though I feel the guy with the lightsaber IS Palpatine, I'm not too sure I'd want to see that. I always felt he was more subtle than that, and the fact that he didn't need to wield a lightsaber to bring down an enemy made him even scarier. His power, I thought, came from his deep knowledge of the Dark Side of the Force. Not from physical abilities. He had a whole army. And Darth Maul, then Darth Tyranus, then Darth Vader. Those guys were his hitmen, his muscle, and their skills with a lightsaber were so great he probably didn't need to actually get down and dirty. Oh well, one more idea put down by this new trilogy :dead:

I felt the same way about Yoda. I didn't agree with him fighting in AOTC (but I really love it) because he's supposed to be the wise one that doesn't need to fight kinda like the kid in school that doesn't get beat up because he jokes his way out of it.

Back on the Palpatine saving Vader. I do believe that Palpy knows Anakin is the one and definitely worth rescuing. This is a kid that squared off against a Dark Lord (Dooku) early in his training and lived to tell about it kinda like what Luke did and whatever he does in Ep. III may seal the deal that he is worth the deformation of your body to rule the galaxy.

I love the scene, from a visual point of view but Yoda's "iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeerrrrrrrgggghh" (that's him screaming) just didn't feel right. And yeah, it takes some of the "magic" away, seeing him fight like that. Granted, it's cool, but I'd much rather leave it all in a duel based on the knowledge of The Force... Yoda was waaaay cooler (IMHO) as a powerful pacifist who could basically toss you around and kick your behind anytime he wanted by simply pointing a finger at you than as a maniac gremlin with a lightsaber

Guess I was wrong about the scene with Chewie possibly saving Yoda, but otherwise, this movie looks like it's gonna be really dark and full of action - and even the slow parts will be full of tension instead of the silliness of TPM and the teeny angst of AOTC. Ian McDiarmid is gonna be the real star of this one!

Yoda vs. Palpy looks like it just might rank up there with Anakin vs. Obi Wan. And Mace vs. Palpy is gonna come in a close second to those - shame Mace has to lose that one. Anakin slicing and dicing Nute Gunray & co.....and the coolest shot of all - Darth Anakin leading the clone troopers through the Jedi temple! :eek: I can't wait!! :D

My wife said something similar ("Even I'm actually getting kind of excited to see it.")

Is it just me or did they seriously $*%& up Sidious' makeup?!?! He looks like Fat Albert in latex!! Hopefully it won't look as horrible in different lighting. The creepiest part for me was Palpatine lunging at the Jedi. It was so sudden and startling.

Can't wait to download it on Hyperspace and screen capture it frame by frame!!

EDIT: Looks like Anakin cut down Nute Gunray in that scene.

Did you all catch the imperial shuttle with the cut off top wing -- that was cool. It looks like this movie is going to be rather fast paced -- non-stop -- something at every turn -- at lease two showings of the popular "1134" in this movie -- haha.

I love how Anakin is "searching" -- kinda prying at Palpy to learn about the dark side -- what does it hide -- what can it do for me -- and WHY is it forbidden?!?!

When is this going to be available on SW.com for non-hyperspace viewers -- Monday?? -- I do not remember ...

The scene where he's fighting Yoda it looks bad, but the scene where he's condemning the Jedi, the make-up job didn't look all that bad. Although after seeing that one behind-the-scens picture of Palpatine and Anakin, it's not just the make-up that looked bad, but Palpy looks like he's been hanging out with Jabba the Hutt.

Anakin leading the Stormtroopers was truly awesome.

Anakin slicing Nute also.

"You're under arrest." "Are you threatening me, Master Jedi?"

I was able to record it straight to my computer through my digital camcorder. I've watched it at least 20 times and have gone through it very nearly frame by frame!

Awesome, just awesome.

Anyone else notice the Clone Pilot being blown from his ARC-170 Starfighter in space?

Also and here's a point I'm expecting alot of debate on, does it look like Anakin standing on one of the Mustafar catwalks when a wave of lava engulfs him/it? Could this be the crucial scene where he is burned to a crisp?

See the attached picture for reference or go here to few a higher res version of it:
http://www.geocities.com/swsalerno/Anakin_lava_big.gif

Look right in the middle of the frame. Does that or does that not look like Anakin/Vader standing there just starting to be engulfed?

So what do you all think? (There's so much more I could talk about but I want to give others a chance)

i think that the lava wave part is just a wave hitting a causeway...i looked really close and there doesn't appear to be anyone on the bridge before the hits because you can see a large door far at the end of the bridge before the wave hits...

Holy Sith that was awesome! Yes, I was blown away by the spectacle of it all, but after (many, many) repeat viewings some of my best hopes for this film were confirmed.

1. The look/cinematography: I put in my TPM and AOTC DVD's to compare and I was amazed at how photo-realistic ROTS looks in comparrison. The shot of the Blue Clone Trooper looks like an actual guy in a suit. They looked pretty darn real in AOTC. They look really real in ROTS. The lighting is fantastic too.

2. Dialog: One of the problems I had with the other two Prequels was the lack of memorable dialog. GL seems to have been in rare form here. There were several great lines and it was only the trailer!

3. Acting: This is tough to say based on a trailer but from Ewan's pained "You were the choosen one!" to Natalie's crying, the cast seems to have really brought their A games here. Hayden only gets a few lines in the trailer but OMG does he look like a maniac. Ian McDiarmid, of course, shines throughout.

That's it. Fantabulous. Gave me goosebumbs and yes, my eyes began to sting just a bit. ANH and ESB just might be ready for some company. :D

Darth Kirk
03-11-2005, 06:27 AM
I have to agree with Fluke Skywalker, from the glimpses into 'Revenge' with this trailer, it indeed does look like the acting has been minimized from cliche to actual acting; the characters seemed more real and at ease, not wooden and one-dimensional.. The overall flow seemed really tight and the amount of story that will be on screen will make this a true roller coaster, a la ANH and ESB.. It just felt different, this time, it wasn't making the point of being in your face, it instead was matter of fact and subtle.. I can't describe it, it was awesome tho. The goosebumps were there for the Phantom and Clones trailers, but this time, I had a tear rolling down my face, damn.

This was great! Waiting through the insufferable O.C. wasn't, though. :D It would've been nice if they said it would be afterwards. But I liked the little intro with Adam Brody playing with the toys. Lucky! :D

There was so much great stuff in there, it was even better than the teaser!

I love how Palpatine is now moving his mouth more, like in ROTJ. Very cool.
That duel of Yoda vs. Palptine in the senate chamber is going to be wicked! :eek:
I also love that part where Mace and the other Jedi light up their sabers, then Palpatine's clicks into his hand and he charges! Surprisingly agile for an old dude!
He had yellow eyes when he said "Every single Jedi is now an enemy of the Republic." Sweet!
I agree, the clones really look nice, both in design and execution. Well, anything looks good when Aayla Secura is standing in front of it with massive cleavage. :D
Did they show Mygeeto? There was a place that looked like white crystals, but then I saw a Wookiee hanging off of a ship in likely the same area. So maybe it was a Kasyyyk lake or something?
Nice to see the Corporate Alliance tank will be making an appearance, after it was scrapped from AOTC.
There were many very emotional parts in this, including Bail screaming, Padmé crying, and Obi-Wan saying "You were the chosen one!" Looks like the acting will be better, hopefully.
Seeing Ki-Adi-Mundi and Plo Koon as holographs on the Council after hearing about it for so long was cool!
That last shot of Vader and Palpatine on the Star Destroyer was amazing.

There's so much else I know I'm forgetting a ton. Oh well, I'll watch it agagin soon enough. :D

03-11-2005, 12:34 PM
I think that lava flow is a near miss. They'll tease us during the fight with stuff like that.

I think in the end, Anakin will have to fall in.

He'll probably Force-push away the wave in the clip we've seen.

The Unleashed figures make it hard to tell. They could be accurate, but are often exagerrated.

03-11-2005, 01:34 PM

Seriously, 5/19 can not get here soon enough.
The Clonetroopers look great and Ian M's performance, man, can not WAIT!
Anakin Streisand's accent is just wonderful. Maybe Hayden should be eating in the booth when they do ADR work to make him sound like a man....

Maybe this time mags like Entertainment Weekly can quit bit-chin about the way the actors look in front of the blue screen backgrounds; those shots with Obi and Ani look seemless and perfect to me. Then again, I'm not a professional critic, just a SW fan, so maybe I have flawed vision...:cool:

Yeah, well, you know despite the sarcastic jab at Hayden's voice, I do think he is already showing that he IS a great actor. His performance in Shattered Glass, that movie about an "article" scandel is just great. And, no, I'm not gonna make fun of his voice in that one, he does sound fine in it.
I'm a big fan of the Anakin character, but I gotta agree with General_Grievous on this one, Hayden's voice does sound like he needs a drink of water in the trailer.
I'm just being picky and yer darn right I'm a bit jealous, who WOULDN'T want to star in a SW film?:classic:
Watched the trailer over DSL tonight, showed it to my father, he was well impressed. It is a KILLER thing to behold and these 2 months can not fly by fast enough...to finally see Palatine come to FRU-it-TION(sic) will be a wonderful thing.

Maybe Anakin was trying to change his voice so it would fit his new tough Jedi persona.

So it was Palpatine. Big shock. I know for a fact I'll go nuts over this fight but I'm still not entirely satisfied with it. I always felt and still believe The Emperor was a scarier character when he didn't have to use a lightsaber to destroy you.

It would have been so cool to see him bring down the Jedi by using the Force choke thing or just the electricity act. This will definitely be a fast paced movie and the best thing is, this time around there HAS to be some good (if not great) writing AND acting because there's just so much that needs to be explained and explored.

Let us only hope this trailer showed us some of those good performances we all expect and is not a few minutes of punch lines and climatic scenes that will support another Phantom Menace.
