    Episode III:
    End of an Era

    The Republic has been thrown into chaos. As more and more planets break away and declare war, the Supreme Chancellor has declared himself Emperor in a bid to save the splintered government.

    As the CLONE WAR threatens to tear the galaxy apart, the few Jedi still left struggle to maintain order. In these desperate times, they find themselves blamed and hunted down by the people they must protect.

    While the Jedi struggle to unwravel the mystery of the Sith, General Obi-Wan Kenobi prepares the Republic for a decisive battle against the DROID ARMIES of the Separatists, after enlisting the help of his disgraced apprentice, Anakin Skywalker...

    Episode III
    Rise of the Empire

    War has engulfed the Galactic Republic. Fearing that the Republic would soon crumble, the Supreme Chancellor, using his newly given emergency powers, has ordered the construction of a mass weapon of destruction, to be used in the effort to preserve the Republic.

    After suffering many casualties in the first battle of the proclaimed CLONE WAR, the limited number of Jedi Knights have continued to fight bravely in the struggle to preserve the Republic.

    That?s all I have for now, but when I think of the rest, I?ll post it...

    Go back and review ALL of the previous scrolls. Look at the patterns. Also, count the words in each paragraph. There are some patterns;

    There are between 16-30 words in each paragraph.The OT always had between 23-30.

    There is always some new threat presented in each scroll.

    Not too many characters are mentioned. If one needs to be left out, it is usually one that has been mentioned. Anakin and Obi-Wan need to have their name in one before the whole thing is over.

    The scroll is NEVER an update on what has happened. There was so much happening between EpI and EpII that much had to be assumed and not mentioned.

    New planets always bring excitement.

    I like a LOT of what I heard and have had the same basic opening scroll going for a while. I have re-worded it to make it succinct.


    It is a time of galactic crisis. To preserve the dacaying Republic, Chancellor Palpatine has declared a state of Martial Law.

    As terror sweeps the galaxy, renegade Count Dooku has fled to the planet of Rondonia to secretly plan a deadly strike against the unexpecting Jedi.

    Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi have led a large squadron of clone assault ships to confront Dooku, hoping to restore peace and order...

    episode 3
    The sixth one actually

    In an attempt to further increase his fat daughter's fast-food fund, director George Lucas has made another movie to base his merchandising concepts on.

    In this one the whinging teenager becomes retarded and has to wear a "special" suit. The crazy old fart becomes Emperor, and the Alec Guiness impersonator continues his sex-less life as a hermit on the sand planet.

    The fate of Jar-Jar binks and Padme has not been revealed yet, but to take your mind off their bad acting, we'll chuck in a bit of Yoda action for good measure. Anytime you spot a continuity error in this movie, please attribute it to the living force or all your midichlorians in your body will die. Thanks.

    in a final attempt to overthrow
    the Republic.

    Meanwhile, a determined

    It is a dark time for the Republic. Although the evil Separatist forces have been driven into retreat , the Clone Wars have left many Jedi dead and whole planets uninhabitable.

    While the Republic continues to search for the masterminds behind their enemy, Anakin Skywalker has returned to his home planet of Tatooine after being expelled from the Jedi order for marrying Senator Amidala.

    Unknown to the young Jedi, the Supreme Chancellor has received information from spies that the Separatists are planning one final attack against the peaceful world of Alderaan, which will require the efforts of every Jedi and clonetrooper in the Republic to defend it . . . .

    How about this:

    Episode III
    "The Revenge of the Sith"

    "After three years of terrible confilct, the war between the Separatists and the GALACTIC REPUBLIC has reached a stalemate.

    The JEDI KNIGHTS have dispatched Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker to Alderaan to aid Senator Organa in organizing a counter-attack.

    But, unbeknownst to them, the evil Darth Sidious, Dark Lord of the Sith, plots to utterly destroy the Jedi and plunge the galaxy into tyranny..."

    (Pan down to a dark ship bearing Sidious and Dooku.)

    JB Fett and hapless sith---Exactly what I was thinking!

    Kinda like the ending of MS Gundam 08th Team.

    Only when the Jedi numbers are dwindling does the Council take back Anakin. They know he is "the chosen one" but not exactly the saviour they are thinking about!

    It is a time of great distress in the galaxy.
    The CLONE WARS have been waged throughout
    thousands of systems and is taking a great toll
    on the Jedi Order.

    The REPUBLIC ARMY, led by the Jedi Knights, have
    forced the leaders of the CONFEDERACY to retreat
    to there Hidden base on the planet ZIST.

    Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan Anakin Skywalker,
    Are leading a strike force to the planet in hopes
    Of crushing the Rebellion and bringing order to
    the Republic.

    Someone said this in another forum, but I don't think Lucas will give away that much in the title. Even though everyone knows it will happen, and undoubtably teenagers now who are parents in the future might mention it offhand to their kids, future generations will be seeing these six films for the first time, and that might kinda spoil it for them. Beleive it or not, the title "Attack of the Clones" really grew on me; I actually like it. Same with "The Phantom Menace."

    ...and you guys criticise George Lucas for his standard of writing!?

    I'm sorry, but some of these are truly, truly awful.

    I don't want to put you down... but... I mean... it's just hillarious that you could say anything derogatory about Lucas.

    Episode III

    Chaos has spread
    throughout the galaxy.
    Entire worlds have been
    devastated by the
    destructive CLONE WARS.

    The Confederacy of
    Independent Systems,
    after winning numerous
    battles, has threatened
    to invade the very
    center of the Republic.

    A Republic fleet, led
    by General Obi-Wan
    Kenobi, has been sent
    to the planet Alderaan
    in order to thwart the
    hostile faction....
