PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Three years into the Clone Wars, the Jedi rescue Palpatine from Count Dooku. As Obi-Wan pursues a new threat, Anakin acts as a double agent between the Jedi Council and Palpatine and is lured into a sinister plan to rule the galaxy.
The speed at which Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi engage in their duel is mostly the speed at which it was filmed, although there are instances where single frames were removed to increase the velocity of particular strikes. An example of this occurs as Obi-Wan strikes down on Vader after applying an armlock in the duel's first half.
Lock on to him R2.
Anakin Skywalker: Master, General Grievous's ship is directly ahead. The one crawling with Vulture droids.
Obi-Wan: Oh, I see it. Oh, this is going to be easy.
When Obi-Wan and Anakin enter the elevator on the Trade Federation flagship, they kill several battle droids. In every other take shot in the same elevator, there are no parts left on the floor. The part of the ceiling that Anakin cuts out also disappears. Also, when the elevators stops the first time, a Battle Droid's hand can be seen standing in the left corner, however, when the shot changes, it disappears and then re-appears again in a shot near the end of the sequence.
The opening logo for 20th Century Fox is static (to match the opening of Episodes 4, 5 and 6), instead of the animated 3-D logo used in Fox films at the time.
The 2011 Blu-Ray release has added dialogue for Commander Cody and the clones when they arrive to aid Obi-Wan on Utapau. Originally, their entrance was silent on the theatrical and DVD versions.
