Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith

The critical chapter in the story of Anakin Skywalker

Emotions run high as Anakin makes decisions that forever change the future of the galaxy and audiences discover just how Darth Vader came to be so evil.

Written and directed by George Lucas, Revenge of the Sith depicts a galaxy at war, with massive battles on far off planets and epic duels in fantastic locales. Like the Star Wars films that preceded it, Episode III remained on the frontier of cinematic innovation, utilizing entirely new tools in digital filmmaking that allowed Lucas to use his imagination like never before.

A fateful chapter in the Star Wars saga, Revenge of the Sith brought new depth and understanding to the popular mythology as an epic on the personal conflicts of light and dark within ourselves.


With the galaxy consumed by the Clone Wars, Anakin Skywalker returns home to learn that his wife, Padmé, is pregnant. With their marriage a secret, Anakin fears for her safety as he becomes embroiled in the political stalemate between the Jedi and Senate. Tempted by the dark side and visions of Padmé’s death, Anakin makes a fateful choice that leaves the galaxy forever changed.
