Alright, the third Star Wars movie, coming out next May, is called "Revenge of the Sith"

Quite frankly, I'm hoping this movie is a nice turnaround. The title, sounds like lots of violence and/or backstabbing, which is good. I haven't seen the second one, but I heard it was garbage. The first one wasn't all that great.

The second one was a mild improvement on the first one. Mainly because a] they kept Jar Jar Binks quiet for almost all of the film, and b] we can now officially blame Binks for causing the Empire. :shifty:

"The Revenge of the Sith"...don't like the title much, but it ought to be a lot darker movie, which always seems to improve it. They'll probably go all out on the Kenobi/Anakin fight over the lava pit, so it should be good to see.

I remember reading the working title for Return of the Jedi was Revenge of the Jedi, and the title was leaked early so they could spot pirated merchandise. It was changed before the leak though because a Jedi wouldn't take revenge. Makes sense for this to be called Revenge of the Sith.

All it boils down to is if the film is good or not..... but the title sounds better then Attack of the Clones, so it has to be a better movie....I wish. Can't wait to see the ANakin-Kenobi fight, another classic star wras moment even if the film doesn't turn up that good.

Fall Of The Republic > Revenge Of The Sith

I agree.

Even if the name would be very inaccurate, as the Republic never fell. It just became dominated by Palpatine, taking on all sorts of 'emergency' powers etc, culminating in the dissolution of the Senate (in episode IV) and his assumption of supreme rule...but still.

Was that another name they were considering, or your own creation?

If you think about it, it's strange that none of the films have had the word 'Force' in them.

Incidentally, because I can't remember, they're not going to make films 7, 8 and 9 are they? I have the vague recollection of hearing somewhere that George Lucas said they would get made, just by some other director than him.

God I hope not.

That's the key to them being fantastic. They could at least be PG-13(maybe) and could be based on THE NOVELS. Not made up by Lucas 10 days before shooting begins.

I remember reading the Young Jedi Knights books when I was little.. I remember them being quite good.. But they never really ended.. No Epilougue or nothing. :ohwell:

*scratches head* I don't recall those...maybe I just never came across them.

Basically my favourites with Zahn's trilogy, Anderton's books (Jedi Academy trilogy and Darksaber) and the Rogue Squadron series. They were greatly superior to any of the others.

Although the Black Fleet Crisis trilogy were also good.

...God, I used to be such a nerd. And what's worse, I seem to have retained all of the knowledge to go with it. :(

Revenge of the Sith could be worse....I think it is a nice nod to the Revenge of the Jedi title.

Secondly, if they made 7,8,9 it would have to be the Thrawn trilogy.

I think Christopher Walken would make a good Thrawn.

Lastly, I highly recomend the whole New Jedi Order series to anyone who reads/used to read Star Wars books.

SPOILERS?

Didn't they kill off Chewie in one of the first books in the series?...If so, my interest slightly died.

'Return of the Sith' could've been interesting...could've been a link to 'Return of the Jedi'

Anywho, I like the title, the film should be at least decent, so I'll be looking forward to it.

Revenge of the Sith is a damn good choice, and it beats the hell out of that cheap B-Movie title "Attack of the Clones" for EP2.

Still, if there's one thing that I've learned about movies over the past year, is that it's best to back a statement up.

Ah-Nold said in T3, they'd have the best chase sequence ever. IMO, it didn't compare to Matrix Reloaded's.

Lucas said this would tie everything in.

It damn well better.

I'm pissed over EP2....

Hopefully, this movie WILL tie it together.

Of course, that's just my opinion.

Actually, the title was not leaked early. The original plan was for the film to be called Revenge of the Jedi and there are trading cards to prove it (I have two), as well as a video game I believe for the Commodore or some early system.

Anyways, George Lucas took another look at the title of the film and decided that it wasn't really in the nature of a Jedi to seek revenge (this is what it says on the back of the trading card), and thus Return of the Jedi was born, believing that it was a title that sounded more triumphant and positive.
