The Clone Wars are now over two years old. The entire galaxy has been thrown into chaos. On one side of the conflict are hundreds of separatist star systems, led by the charismatic Count Dooku, who are rebelling against the Republic led by the scheming-in-secret Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious.

Palpatine manages to place blame on the Galactic Senate and the Jedi Knights for much of what is going on during the wars. Palpatine makes them the scape goats for all of the galaxies many problems. The people grow tired of the Galactic Senate and the Jedi Knights. They are ready for drastic change and Palpatine realizes this.

At the beginning of the movie, Anakin and Obi-Wan fight in various Clone War battles. Obi-Wan is now a general fighting for Bail Organa of Alderaan.

Palpatine senses Anakin's impatience with the Jedi Knights. The Jedi seek to keep Anakin from Padme. Also, Anakin hates being both poor and relatively powerless. A Jedi takes a vow of poverty. Anakin believes that he is perhaps the greatest Jedi ever and wants people to recognize his greatness. In secret, Palpatine approaches Anakin. Palpatine explains the ways of the dark side and how it can be used by Anakin to make him rich and powerful. Anakin is receptive. He and Padme have nothing and they will always have nothing as long as Anakin remains a Jedi. Palpatine's offer cannot be refused.

Palpatine explains to Anakin the rules of the Sith. Palpatine tells Anakin that only two Sith Lords can exist at any one time. If Anakin wants to become rich and powerful, then Anakin must face Darth Tyranus again and kill Darth Tyranus in order to become Palpatine's new apprentice. Later, Anakin and Tyranus meet face to face. Anakin slays Tyranus after an intense light-saber duel.

While Anakin is falling to the dark side, Obi-Wan is busy fighting in the wars. Padme contacts Obi-Wan and tells Obi-Wan that Anakin is leaving the Jedi Order. Obi-Wan leaves the war and rushes to confront Anakin.

Obi-Wan finds Anakin on a volcanic world. Anakin tells Obi-Wan that the Jedi are weak. The Jedi seek to be both poor and powerless. Anakin states that the dark side offers riches beyond any man's wildest ambitions. Anakin calls Obi-Wan an idealistic fool for staying with the Jedi. The two begin to argue. A light-saber battle between them erupts.

Obi-Wan states that he cannot disobey the Jedi Council and blocks Anakin's attack. Anakin becomes reckless and falls into a molten pool. Anakin's light sabre falls to the ground. Obi-Wan watches Anakin sink into the lava pool. Obi-Wan exits the battle area to find help for Anakin.

Palpatine enters and has his storm troopers rescue Anakin from the molten pool. They then quickly leave the area. A few minutes later, Obi-Wan returns with some other Jedi Knights. They are unable to find Anakin. Obi-Wan assumes the molten pool has consumed Anakin's body. Obi-Wan finds Anakin's light sabre on the ground and takes it with him. Obi-Wan tells Padme that Anakin is dead. Padme is saddened by this news.

Palpatine's medical droids nurse Anakin back to health. Anakin is eventually placed into his familiar-looking black mask and body armor. Palpatine teaches Anakin to the ways of the Sith. Anakin grows to hate the Jedi and the Republic. Palpatine promises that, in time, Anakin will be reunited with Padme, but in the mean time Anakin must be patient and allow their plan to unfold. Anakin takes the name of Darth Vader. Only Palpatine and his trusted minions know that Darth Vader is actually Anakin. Everyone else believes that Anakin is dead.

The Clone Wars continue to rage on and thousands of Republic clones are killed in the various battles. Many Jedi are killed in the wars. The Galactic Senate is under heavy pressure from their people to find a way to end the wars. Palpatine continues to frame the Senate and the Jedi as the reason the wars are going so badly. The people demand and end to the Jedi's and Senate's incompetence and corruption. Palpatine takes this opportunity to declare himself Emperor. He immediately abolishes the Galactic Senate, Jedi Council and the entire Jedi Order. The people hail Palpatine as the saviour of the Republic.

Palpatine replaces the Galactic Senate with the Imperial Senate. The members of the new Senate are hand picked by Palpatine. The Imperial Senate and Palpatine issue a proclamation declaring the Jedi Knights to be enemies of the Republic. They order the immediate arrest of all Jedi Knights. The Jedi begin to go into hiding. Jabba the Hutt helps Palpatine hunt down the Jedi. Many Jedi are killed during this purge.

Separatist's agents leak false information to Republic spies concerning a super weapon being developed by the separatist's scientists on Geonosis. Palpatine states that the Republic must have this weapon. Of course, the super weapon does not exist and Palpatine knows this, but he uses this weapon as an excuse to send all of the Republic's remaining star ships into a trap. Palpatine expects the separatist's cloaked fleet to completely annihilate the Republic's star ships and remaining fighters.

All the star ships of the Republic military converge on Geonosis. The flag ship of the Republic fleet contains Palpatine and Darth Vader. Obi-Wan sneaks his star ship into the Geonosis system. Palpatine's flag ship detects Obi-Wan's ship and captures it with a tractor beam. Obi-Wan is brought aboard Palpatine's ship. There are no enemy star ships visible near Geonosis since the separatists's fleet remains hidden with cloaking technology. When the trap is set, the separatist's fleet de-cloakes and destroys most of the Republic's remaining star ships and fighters. Palpatine surrenders and separatist troops board Palpatine's ship and take Palpatine, Darth Vader and Obi-Wan to the lower levels of the separatist's ship.

Yoda, Mace Windu and a pregnant Padme are brought before the separatists leaders. For their protection, Yoda, Windu and Padme are surrounded by creatures we have never seen before. The separatist leader announces that Palpatine and the entire Republic have surrendered. The great Republic has finally lost the war.

A great battle erupts between Yoda, Mace Windu, Obi-Wan vs. the separatists, Palpatine and Darth Vader. It is a tremendous fight. Yoda, Mace, Padme and Obi-Wan manage to escape on a starship.

Their starship arrives on an obscure planet called Dagobah. Prior to Luke and Leia's birth, Obi-Wan states that he will now go by the name Ben. The Skywalker twins are born on Dagobah. After many shed tears, Yoda is left behind on Dagobah. Next, Obi-Wan and baby Luke taken to the forgotten world of Tatooine. The final destination for Mace Windu, Padme and baby Leia is the safety of Alderaan. Bail Organa greets them with open arms. Bail gives them a secret hiding place.

Lastly, Obi-Wan is seen at Owen and Beru Lars' home. He gives Luke to them to raise. Obi-Wan tells Owen and Beru that Obi-Wan is now dead along with all the other Jedi Knights. He will now go by the name Ben. The film ends with baby Luke in the gentle arms of Ben Kenobi. The ghostly spirits of many Jedi Knights appear behind Obi-Wan and baby Luke.

You don't find out what happens to Padme or Mace Windo?:confused:

What is the source of this information?

It isn't that I don't agree with the possibility of many of these events, but it is hardly a spoiler unless it has some official backing.

Of course we know what happened to Padme.

Princess Leia Organa to Luke Skywalker on the forrest moon of Endor:

"She died when I was young. She was very beautiful but sad."

She dies between E3 and ANH.

I don't think Palpatine lures Anakin to the dark side with the promise of "power and riches" I think the reasons for his fall are much more personal. Of course, you all know what I think... <Koff >Mace's Death <koff koff>

The passage of time is also very vague. If this is supposed to be the movie, the time has to be much more concise.

"Palpatine teaches Anakin to the ways of the Sith. Anakin grows to hate the Jedi and the Republic. Palpatine promises that, in time, Anakin will be reunited with Padme, but in the mean time Anakin must be patient and allow their plan to unfold."

and

"The Clone Wars continue to rage on and thousands of Republic clones are killed in the various battles. Many Jedi are killed in the wars. "

and

"The Jedi begin to go into hiding. Jabba the Hutt helps Palpatine hunt down the Jedi. Many Jedi are killed during this purge. "

This has the feel of years passing, not weeks or days.

Actually, I was referring to the Mace's Death thread, which I relentlessly plug in all these spoiler threads because we've already discussed these questions in THAT thread, so I often feel like I'm repeating myself.;)

Starts off ok but descends into make it up as you go along territory. The first part up to Anakin falling into the lava pit was okay but after that it's just stupid and doesn't sound anything like the way George does things. Palpatine suddenly arriving on the very same planet that Anakin is dying on? Tenuous and made up. I don't believe a word of this. it's too ropey and straggly ended to be real. There's not nearly enough interplay between Anakin and Obi. To have Anakin die at the start of the movie and not turn up again until halfway through is just stupid. The whole saga is about Anakins struggle so they're going to spend a lot more screen time with him. This synopsis has Anakin standing around in the Vader suit like a lemon for most of the time. There's too much dressing and not a lot of salad. And Geonosis? What's that doing there? It'll most likely be new planets that they designed for ep2 but never used. The Jedi Council was asked about design re-use at the official site and they stated that there would most likely be new environments in ep3 drawn from the unused designs of ep2.

This synopsis is hokey. definately hokey. Didn't Jargo have a really old episode three synopsis in a thread? this sounds a lot like that if I remember right. This has changes to update it but it sort of reads the same. Apart from the republic fleet part which sounds like a timothy Zahn novel plot or something out of the old marvel comics.

let me first start off by saying i didn't make this up. it was something i found at www.supershadow.com and i thought you guys would like to read it. but after some of the post i been reading after i posted it. sounds like some of you are lucas's best friend (that you must be writing the movie with him) so those of you who enjoyed reading it i'm glad. for those of you who want to pick it apart cause you know what the movie really is about post it ans stop talking your sh**. and let us all know what the movie is about.

I knew I smelled the air of Supershadow at work! Why does this guy still exist? Some of you may remember his "interview with George Lucas" that was only from the minds of minolta. ;)


Roneyzf, welcome to the board, you'll have to pardon those who are in just such disbelief that they vent their frustration so rudely. It's not all like that here.

However, as for taking Supershadow seriously, I strongly suggest you do not - he is a big scammer, we have seen him doing this sort of thing (http://209.197.112.151/thread.html?dom=ss&TID=10&PID=617) all the time where it's just news he pulls out of thin air and then mixes with popular spoilers of the day to create something with half a ring of truth.

For the (ahem)definitive Episode III story, go to the Mace's Death thread...

Page 8 cas a complete synopsis so far, but the seven pages leading up to it has a complete breakdown through discussion, concensus, etc of WHY it's definitive...

This story is amusing, but unbeleivable! I have read several E3 spoilers and one of them had scene with Kenobi and Anykan clashing lightsabers on Coruscant above molten steel at some factory in the lower depths of the city-like planet. This version is more believable due to the fact that Palpatine and his stormtroopers will be near by. Also I can't forsee Kenobi chasing his former apprentice across the galaxy just to land on a remote volcanic planet with Palpatine waiting to save the day. I think Coruscant will be the most involved planet in E3...look who's taking over!

That sounds familiar. Where did you read that?

To be honest, I can't remember. It was one of those late-night things on the computer and I don't remeber where I got that info. However I will invesigate and let you know!

I like that idea though, the whole Jedi spirits in the background.

I like it, too. I always thought it'd be cool to have Yoda, Anakin, and Obi Wan appear to Luke in ROJ, but to have a multitude of Jedi appear behind them VERY faintly. Like Mace and Plo and Luminara. Almost like you weren't sure if you were actually seeing them.
