Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith DVD preview



Preview: Jack Foley

THE epic intergalactic adventure of the Star Wars saga is finally complete, and audiences can celebrate the unforgettable fun and thrills of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith when the year’s biggest box-office hit debuts on October 31, 2005 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Lucasfilm Ltd.

The simultaneous release of Star Wars Battlefront II™, the sequel to the best-selling Star Wars video game of all time, makes October 31 a milestone day in Star Wars history.

The two-disc Revenge of the Sith DVD will include a brand-new, full-length documentary produced by Lucasfilm Ltd.; two new featurettes – one exploring the prophecy of Anakin Skywalker as the Chosen One, the other providing an in-depth look at the movie’s eye-popping stunts; and a 15-part collection of Lucasfilm’s groundbreaking 'web documentaries'.

"Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith gave audiences an extraordinary experience and we
want this DVD to do the same," said Jim Ward, Vice President of Marketing and Distribution for Lucasfilm Ltd.

"From the beginning of production, George wanted to be sure we chronicled everything that went into the making of Episode III specifically to create an incredible DVD experience.

"This DVD has literally been three years in the making and it’s going to be a fantastic way to complete the Star Wars saga at home."

Adding to the in-home Star Wars adventure is the release on October 31 of the eagerly anticipated Star Wars Battlefront II from LucasArts – the sequel to the best-selling Star Wars video game of all time.

Star Wars Battlefront II adds all-new space combat, playable Jedi characters, and never-before-seen environments straight out of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.

The game will be released for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Xbox® video game system from Microsoft, Windows™ platform and Sony PSP™.

Fans of the original Star Wars Battlefront will also enjoy an all-new single-player experience that takes players through an epic, story-based saga centering on Darth Vader’s elite 501st Legion of Stormtroopers where every action the player takes impacts the battlefront and, ultimately, the fate of the Star Wars galaxy.

The Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith DVD will offer access to a special Xbox-playable demo of two entire levels from LucasArts’ Star Wars Battlefront II.

"The combination of Revenge of the Sith on DVD and Star Wars Battlefront II makes October 31 a watershed day for Star Wars fans. It’s really going to be a terrific celebration of the entire saga," Ward said.

The DVD release of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith marks the first time that fans can own all six episodes of the saga.

"After seeing Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, moviegoers around the world told us that they immediately wanted to watch Episode IV to see how the entire saga comes together, and now they’ll be able to do just that, making the Star Wars experience richer and more exciting than ever," Ward said.
