Revenge of the Sith to be name of third Star Wars film



Story by: Jack Foley

THE REVENGE of the Sith is to be the name of the third and final Star Wars prequel, when it is released next Summer.

The name was confirmed by Lucasfilm this weekend and is sure to further heighten anticipation of the movie, which will complete Anakin Skywalker's path to the dark side, and his eventual fate as Darth Vader.

The name of the film was revealed at the Comic-Con International science fiction convention, in San Diego, on Saturday (July 24, 2004), when a member of producer, Lucasfilm, wore a T-shirt displaying the new film's logo.

Steve Sansweet, Lucasfilm's head of fan relations, who attended in George Lucas' place, commented: "For some time now, the naming of a new Star Wars movie has taken on some special meaning among core fans who love to take part in guessing games and speculation before a title is announced.

"Let the debate begin," he added, to an audience of 6,500 people.

The Revenge of the Sith has been scheduled for a May 2005 release and is predicted to become one of next year's biggest releases.
