Trailer 1 Description

Well, there's a description of the first trailer over at TFN, and thay've been pretty good with the other ones before so I assume it's gonna be the same with this one. Anyways, here it is :

Quote:
From TFN
The first half of trailer consists of a familiar voice over with Alec Guinness. Fans will love to hear him speak his monologue to Luke from A New Hope about "Jedi Knights always being the guardians of peace." As we hear these familiar phrases, they've intercut shots from various Star Wars episodes, excluding Episode 3. Only when the monologue ends with "Vader was seduced by the dark side of the Force" about 40 seconds into the trailer do we see the face of Anakin. He is partly covered with dark hood, looking positively evil.
This is followed by the shot of erupting volcanoes, then some sort of volcanic field with crab-like creatures and then darkness, all accompanied by Vader breathing. Then the following is heard:

Sidious: "Lord Vader..."

Vader: "Yes?"

Sidious: "Rise."

Then we see Anakin in full Vader gear rising on some sort of operating table to which he is chained. The rising is slow and is intercut with shot of various Star Wars main characters. When the table has fully risen so that Vader is basically standing upright, the meatiest part of trailer begins, with many, many shots from Episode III. Most of them are very, very short - this will be something for freeze-frame fanatics to analyze.

The ones that stuck in my memory:

Dozens of Wookiees on some sort of floating platform.

Padme with signature Leia hairdo.

The Tri-Fighter, aka the precursor to the TIE fighter with three curving wings and guns mounted between each wing. They shoot red lasers.

The ARC Clonefigthter, aka the precursor to X-Wing, with three wings on each side.

A gigantic starship being sprayed by streams of something that looks like dense acid.

The trailer ends with the title "THE SAGA IS COMPLETE - MAY 2005"
Sounds good to me ! Can't wait to see the Vader / Sisious Scene.

i was just reading that on TFN myself

sounds great.
it is surprising that they would include, what sounds like, Vader’s first scene in the trailer.

Man, I really hope that this next movie is better than the first two cutscenes - er - I mean movies. I mean, everything from the storyline, to the effects, to the design I just hated in TPM and AOTC.

I'm looking for more designs that begin to blend into those of the original trilogy. I'm looking for a storyline that answers the big questions, like how does the Jedi Purge begin, how does Yoda get exiled, how does Luke and Leia get split up, what happens during Ani's and Obi's fight, what happens to Mace, what happens to Dooku, how does the Emperor reveal himself - I want to see all the subtlety of the previous to movies be wrapped up cleanly. I'd like to see the vehicles rendered in a way such that they don't look like CGI, but look like tangible objects like they did in the original trilogy - but that's probably not going to happen.

Anyway, I have high hopes for this one, but I sort of expect to be disappointed.


All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players...

I think that one of the biggest visual differentces between I, II, and the OT were the wear and tear, everything is new and shiny in I and II, but I think that after four years (I think thats how long they said) of war, everything will be falling apart, I think it will give the movie a better feel

Can't wait!!

Update

www.theforce.net have posted some more details about the trailer...


Quote:
Anakin's reply to Palpatine is Yes, Master? and not just "Yes" and previsouly reported. Sweet. It is said somehow questioningly, as if he is not exactly sure what is happening.
Palpatine's "Riiiiiiiiise" is so devilish and long, they've clearly spent some time on making this section of the film perfect. Still finding it hard to believe they are going to show this section so early. Wow.

We've been told that the voice of Vader is ... close ... but definitely sounds different from the original Darth Vader. There should be no doubt that Lucas could make him sound perfectly like the classic Vader if he wanted, so this must be intentional. After all, it's logical that teenage Anakin under the Vader mask sounds slightly different than old Anakin in Episode IV under the same mask. We think it is either an early cut without finished effects (voice and visual) or Hayden Christensen's voice modulated through some advanced filters to sound very, very much like Jones. If you played this to casual moviegoer, he or she may not even notice any difference from Vader's classic voice.

And to clarify an earlier point or two, the lines of dialogue we posted are spoken over completely black screen right after the volcanic field shot. And the Tri-fighter we mentioned is actually the new Jedi starfighter.

There are no mechanical characters in the trailer except R2D2 and C3PO, not even for a split second. There is someone with sharp teeth and humanoid head, slightly resembling the alien from Enemy Mine. Someone should post a picture here for comparison, though it might just be Tion Meddon. So unless its the off chance that is Grievous unmasked, the Droid General does not figure into this first trailer.

Then it is probably a safe bet you will hate Episode 3 as well.

i don't think anyone will disagree that the duel between obi-wan and anakin will be worth the ticket price alone. i think even if the rest of the film sucks (which i highly doubt) people will walk out of the cinema saying "man! that duel pwns! it made me wet my pants"

so just download the trailer from online which will be available either legally or illegally and using quicktime or window media player pause and then fastforward frame by frame to see the trailer in full detail. it's a pain but well worth the effort.

The trailer may be on Access Hollywood the night before it screens with 'The Incredibles' on Nov. 5, so we may not have to worry about $10 ticket prices for a 30sec clip

Just saw the trailer. I don't have Hyperspace, but I have AOL. Anyone with AOL or that uses AOL IM can get to it with the right link and download it.

Finally seeing Ol Palpy swinging away with his red saber just gives me warm feelings inside.

One things a certainty George Lucas can sure make a good Trailer.
