EP III spoilers!!

i was on www.theforce.net and saw this rather interesting spoiler.
it sounds good, but how reliable the source remains to be seen.

spoiler:
Quote:

after the events of the absolutely epic opening space battle, the droid general has escaped, Palpatine has been rescued and Dooku is dead. Unfortunately, the Seperatist cruiser that Obi-Wan, Anakin and Palpatine is on, has now broken apart and tumbles into the atmosphere of Coruscant. The "Coruscant Fire Department" sends up fire ships to help guide the ship in for as safe of a crash landing as they can manage.
Anakin expects to be treated with more respect by the Jedi order now after having killed Dooku and rescuing Palpatine. When the droid general is tracked down, Obi-Wan is sent off on the mission to take him down, not Anakin. Palpatine, in response to his being kidnapped, uses this as a foil to upgrade his security and make Anakin his personal bodyguard. Another step for Anakin to be closer to Palpatine and in the future the Dark Side. He is getting prideful with slaying Dooku, and we see him now separated from Obi-Wan yet again. A receipe for disaster. And "upgrading the security" sure sounds like the Red Guards finally get much deserved recognition.

Anakin does indeed have to make a "choice" in the film. That choice is given to him by Palpatine. In response, Mace Windu chooses to try and defend himself. This sounds like it fits with the Palpidious SPY REPORT earlier this week. Anakin is guarding Palpatine, per the spoiler above, and Mace comes for a visit. We see a flash of the ROJ Palpatine, then he unloads on Mace. Anakin and Mace duel, with Mace going down hard - sealing Anakin's embrace of the Dark Side.

good stuff yes?
again, how true it is we can only wait and see.

Well a lot of that can be assumed by piecing together the chats over at starwars.com about everything over at HP. We've seen the guy who's on the "fire ship" although no one has said...what the "fire ship" is. We also know that the opening scene is going to be a battle in space......and we do know that Dooku does die within the first, what 10 min...so it is possible....but again

we'll have to wait 2 or so more years right?

Yeah...right. Lucasfilm will never let the story out like that. If that was indeed the story you know that Lucasfilm would not tolerate it and be all over those peoples asses who leaked it. Remember before Ep2 some guy leaked a couple pictures of Ep2 and ended up in jail for it, not to mention fired from Lucasfilm.

I will not believe this. I believe in Lucasfilm and what they publish, never will I give in to rumors some fat leet geeks cooked up.


May the Force be with you...

OR LucasFilms is being very smart and is somehow planting a fake story to us all, they could be trying to get us to expect something like this and then when Ep3 comes out it's totally different lol

Intresting stuff

The new bad guy they keep going on about sounds like a mix of either the Saber Droids from JA & Darth Maul.

I just wish Ep3 would come out in 2004 instead of 2005 , but i suppose ILM have to cram it full of CGI and add in everything else.

here's something else from theforce.net...

its from an interview with hayden christensen


Julian: Nick Gilliard (the stunt coordinator) has said the light saber battles in the film will be the greatest so far. That’s a bold statement once you’ve seen Yoda and Count Dooku go at it. Can you confirm this?

Hayden: "I will say, on the record, the final fight sequence in this film will, in my opinion, and not having seen any of it cut together, should surpass any fight sequence that has been put on film so far. It’s the longest, I can’t give you specifics, but it is quite the bad-assed fight scene. Nick Gilliard has done an amazing job instilling an arc of story in the fight. It justifies, because you know Anakin and Obi-Wan have it out, but Anakin is the chosen one-he is supposed to be the best. But he comes out on the shorter end of the stick in the fight. It justifies it really nicely as the fight progresses."



lets hope he's right and it is the best duel ever

another bit of news from theforce.net

different versions filmed

Quote:
Let's put it this way... Padme's ultimate fate is still unknown. Lucas covered BOTH scenarios during filming and left some things open for change for the pickups next year if need be. And this was actually pretty easy. It doesn't really affect the rest of the story much at all, because either she dies... or everyone thinks she's dead (besides Bail & Co of course) and she lives out the rest of her life in tragic anonymity. It will all come down to Lucas' final decision on whether or not he wants her to die within the context of EP3 itself.
so no one but GL will know if padme dies or not until the final edit.

More spoilers from TFN...

- When Obi-Wan returns to Coruscant, he meets up with Yoda and must come to terms with what Anakin has been up to while he was away. The most telling of evidence is proof that Anakin led a raid on the temple with clonetroopers and eliminated the Younglings and any Jedi trying to protect them.
- Padme tracks down Anakin to Mustafar. When she finds him, he has already dispatched all the Seperatist leaders. She is still not full term yet in her pregnancy. Anakin only believes she is pregnant with one child. When the twins are born, it is not due to Padme going into labor, but out of necessity to rescue them from her before she passes.

- Mustafar is the "lava planet" and would best be described as the underbowels of Bespin meets lava processing facilities. Take the environment that Luke and Vader fought in on Bespin, and build it into the side of a volcanic mountain and you'll begin to get a rough idea of what the area will be like.


edit

more spoilers...
