View Full Version : Star Wars Episode III: Fall of the Republic...

...is of course an unofficial name of the 3rd episode, and also, everything I say about Ep3/storyline is unofficial, and unconfirmed and this is in NO WAY officially connected to George Lucas or LucasFilms!! Even if it was, I wouldn't know it.

I came across a Word file (looking for the official Ep2 script actually), which (by the dates on it) looks like it was made in '83. To be short, it maps down Ep3 pretty much. Of course there are a couple of things that don't fit (story wise, to the fact that some things arent usable anymore after we have seen Ep1 and 2 [LIKE ONE VERY IMPORTANT NAME :p]), and it looks like this script will be heavily edited when it comes to 2005, however it seems roughly real enough. Could be a fake of course, but it is in 23 pages, and it seems to point out everything so it looks like it completes the story. Really nice to read to have some kind of a view even if it is a fake. Just for fun basically...

If you want to read it, drop the e-mail below and I'll send it to you...

By asking for the file, you acknowledge that I don't have any connection to it, and you are the only ones responsible for having it in your possession. You also acknowledge that the file is merely for fun, and not to be held as anything connected to George Lucas or LucasFilms. You also recognise that this file is a potential spoiler to Episode3 although the file is for FUN AND ENJOYMENT ONLY!

By placing down your e-mail adress, you "sign" the terms above.

Had to sheild myself :p:p.

Personally, I think Episode III will be called "Re-Attack of the clones" or "Real bad mojo"

But can you say it with proper spelling?

And, I'll start sending those out in about 30 min, I'm doing things with my room...

06-29-2002, 02:23 AM
sorry i know my speeling sux and all but tell me what u think of it do u think it is a fake or what

06-29-2002, 02:35 AM
I don't really care. When 2005 hits, I'll see it anyway (unless I die or get some disease that won't allow me to go to the cinema.

It fills my hole, and I sort of know what to expect now. Even if it is a fake, I get to see another point of view...

The trouble is, the Republic never really falls. Before the prequels, I think a lot of us thought that Palpatine seized power through violence, revolution, etc. etc. Rather it seems to me, viewing ANH in context of the prequels we have seen thus far, the Empire is born out of a transitional period. The Republic changes gradually and subtly and eventually bears no resemblance to itself. At some point perhaps Palpatine actually does something overtly illegal when he declares himself Emporer.

Little details such as the "wheel" symbol of the Republic (long thought of as the symbol of the Empire) and the "last traces of the Old Republic" (the Senate) hint to the fact that the Empire is merely a transformation, rather than a suprise coup.

That's how I see it, and yes, we'll see Episode 3 spoilers eventually, but until filming begins, I would treat everything I saw as mere speculation by fans, wishful thinking and hoaxes, as we saw with the other two movies.

You guys remember the fake Episode I and II scripts? Let's not forget that the notion that George had all the prequels mapped out before the 1990's is pure wishful thinking (he even confirmed this himself recently). This is obviously a fake and George will surely confirm this just as he did the other fake scripts that appeared on the 'net long ago. Has GL said he's finished writing the script? When he has, then it might be more believable, but hey, history repeats itself...

06-29-2002, 03:10 PM
Well, yeah 83% :D of the chances are that it IS a fake...but still...nice story to read just to have some kind of an image on Ep3.

And yeah, you were kind of right with the first part of your post, it happenes something like that in this script...

My guess is that the Emperor is gonna be portrayed somewhat as Hitler...

06-29-2002, 03:10 PM
You're right, Kurgan, it's probably just a hoax, or at best, a very rough idea of what should happen in EpIII. But if it was written by some Mr. Joe StarWarsFan, kudos to him. It manages to cover every major plot twist that is going to happen in EpIII (just because those events have to happen), while incorporating enough of the ideas that have since been debunked (such as Owen Lars being Obi-Wans brother) to make us think that it might be an old revision of the EpIII story. And it's a darn good story, what with the space battle and all.

So, even if (and it probably is) a fake, it's still good reading.

I just do a simple scan thru the script.

-I didnt see they mention anything about the Clone Wars

-When Yoda went to Dagobah?

-Boba Fett grown up?

06-30-2002, 12:36 AM
I imagine another 10 years have past so Boba is already grown up...

Uhh, read a little closer about the Clone Wars...They don't have to refer to it as CLONE WARS so they would be called that. Any war where there are clones involved are Clone Wars... And about Yoda, well it seemes it will be in the begining of Ep3 when he moves down there.....but we will see about that.

And besides the script is prolly a fake, but a damn good one...so you shouldnt take any of it seriously....

06-30-2002, 02:05 AM
100% fake, but I'll read it anyway.


06-30-2002, 02:21 AM
Its a pretty good script. Some things are weak, but on the whole I woulndt be dissapointed is Episode III actualy ended up similar to this, as long as we get a duel between mace and some big bad sith, maybe Vader. And the whole thing about boba hunting down the jedi is riddiculous, regardless of how old he is.

06-30-2002, 03:05 AM
See that's the trouble... since we "know" what "has to happen" anybody can makeup a fake screenplay for Episode III right now. Just rattle off a laundary list of stuff that has to be accomplished before ANH and boom, you're done. ; )

It is always possible that despite the secrecy they work under, some unscrupulous LucasFilm employee could walk off the set or out of George's private e/mail with a draft copy and sneak it onto the 'net, but never doubt the powers of George's team of DISinformation sender-outters (motto: "Remember Blue Harvest!"). Again, the only real way to prove the person who "leaked it" wrong is to wait for Lucas to deny that its real, or announce that he's started/finished writing the script (thereby contradicting the idea that the alleged script is in any way genuine).

06-30-2002, 04:11 AM
We established the possibilities already...going deeper into them is useless...but thanks for the bump non the less...

06-30-2002, 04:27 AM
Ghaaa!!!! I am stuck in a dilema!!!

Should I read it? Or shouldnt I read it? That is the question.

I heard that it is supposed to be 3 or so years afterwards so I doubt that Boba is a decent Bounty Hunter yet, making it seem like if the script DOES have him as a major role in the Jedi Purge that it is probably a fake. But on the other hand, he would be about 15, and I guess thats not to young to put on some armor and start killing people (given he has his fathers traits and all) so I dotn know whether to read it or not!!!!!

Help me people!!!!!!!

Guys, guys, GUYS!! I've read Fall of the Republic, and I must say...it's not very good. If you want a REALLY interesting read, you've gotta read "Knightfall" a 98 pages long "could-be-episode-three". It is completely fan-made, but if George's vision is HALF as good as this one, Episode III will be the greatest!

You've all gotta read Knightfall! It's magnificent, and I was left stunned (hehe) after I read it. It's brilliant! The great thing is, it spoils nothing, since it is a 100% unofficial. But it's mighty, mighty fun to read!

Here's a link...http://fanfic.echostation.com/fics/knightfall.htm

06-30-2002, 01:57 PM

I'll see how this is

Is it a little late for me? Considering I found it on page 3, that is. Anyway, please send me a copy.


07-03-2002, 06:58 PM

btw, IMHO Fall of the Jedi would be a good name for Ep III

07-03-2002, 08:05 PM
Even if "Fall of the Republic" does sound like a good name - if you look at patterns in the names GL assigns to his movies, you will see it is rather unlikely.

Most of the names he gives the films are NEVER the main theme of the movie - they are a general overview of the FEELING or often a "sub-plot" of the movie...

eg. "A New Hope" - General Feeling
"Phantom Menace" - General Feeling
"AOTC" - Not the main issue at all... a "sub-plot" or "sub-product of the film"
"Empire Strikes Back" - General Feeling
"ROTJ" - General Feeling

I would hazard a guess it would be called something like

Episode III: Birth of the Rebellion - Sub-product of the main issue of the film


Episode III: The End of Hope

This would tie in nicely with the theme and also set up nicely for Epi 4: A new hope.

I know they are very unlikely and aren't that good - but that is the kind of theme George has followed in the other 5 films...

07-03-2002, 08:36 PM
I think the correct answer is "Who gives a ****?"

Seriously...it doesn't matter...

07-04-2002, 02:33 AM
I read the 89 page fanfic and though it fits perfectly and resolves all the issues, it is different from George Lucas will probably envision Ep III to be. Some of it goes against the Star Wars universe or statements made earlier by Lucas. Interesting nonetheless on how he interprets the movies check it out. It took me a good 6 hours to read. (but I'm at work and I have interuptions :D )

07-04-2002, 02:39 AM
I thought the fanfic was awesome!! Too bad GL will probably screw up EP3 and make JarJar the hero who kills Dukuu....

The fanfic did answer all the outstanding questions and was a great read, even if it wasn't "official"....

Anyway, gonna go read the first one now.....Need to waste some more time at work today!
