Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, is set three years after the onset of the Clone Wars. Jedi are spread throughout the galaxy, commanding their individual clone legions against the Separatists’ battle droids. The High Council dispatches Obi-Wan to hunt down General Grievous, the cyborg-Kaleesh leader of the Separatist army. Meanwhile, Anakin begins to suffer from nightmares depicting Padme’s death in childbirth. Afraid of losing her, Skywalker is tasked to spy on the Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, who is secretly the master of orchestrating the Clone Wars, Sith Lord Darth Sidious. Following an assassination attempt by Jedi Master Mace Windu, Palpatine manipulates Anakin into turning to the dark side of the Force, anointing him as his apprentice, Darth Vader.
RotS is my favorite Star Wars movie (definitely not cuz of Obi-Wan), but for its significant impact on the Star Wars fanbase. The movie covers Anakin’s fall to the dark side as well as Order 66, the galaxy-wide and years-long genocide of the Jedi Order. I find it completely normal that I can recite the entire script of the movie as well as remembering every meme format 🙂
Revenge of the Sith is available for checkout from the Mission Viejo Library.
