Guest Blogger Chris Vergari posting for me on the Star Wars Mania thats been kicking in the last few weeks! I am looking foward to the new games including the Star Wars Lego video games! Where the hell was that when i was 12!- Thanks pal good work!
Well there’s only 52 days left until the final episode of Star Wars premieres. And it looks like George Lucas will finally give the fans what they’ve been asking for in a Star Wars film. After the less than admirable feelings towards episodes I and II, this one should not disappoint, I hope.
By now, many have seen the Revenge of the Sith trailer and as with the trailers for The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, it looks killer. But of course there was always something missing from the previous two that we get in Episode III-DarthVader. Yes we had R2D2 and Yoda, we even had a naked C3PO. But seeing Darth Vader again just brings the whole Star Wars experience full circle. When he spoke for the first time with his old familiar James Earl Jones voice in the teaser trailer seen some months ago, I was instantly transported back to the original trilogy from 1978 when I was 8 years old, and yes it gave me goosebumps. Now that I’m almost 35 with kids of my own (they’re a little young for Star Wars but you can bet that when they’re ready I’ll be whipping out the DVDs) it’s like the whole saga is finally coming together. And with the Clone Wars Cartoons (part one just came out on DVD and you can see part two currently on Cartoon Network), we get to see what happens during the Clone Wars that began at the end of Attack of the Clones and are ending at the beginning of Revenge of the Sith. They are very well done and worthy of the Star Wars name. They provide a seamless link between the 2 movies, I’d recommend seeing the Clone Wars series before seeing Episode III instead of relying on the opening crawl to catch up on what’s been happening since Episode II. Yes it’s a good time to be a Star Wars fan.
