Hello all! After a brief conversation with mavjade, I have created this new thread wherein you can post trailers for your stories. You can post a trailer for a completed story, a current one or even an upcoming one. It's a great way to advertise your story and it's loads of fun! Here is the link for the original FanFic Trailer thread. Most of them are cut off due to truncation, and the stories cannot be read for the same reason. However, even with incomplete trailers, you can get some ideas. So, have some fun and lets see those trailers! **************************************************** The Fox Logo appears then fades. The Lucasfilm Logo appears then fades. The Force Theme plays softly in the background as an image of the majestic Jedi Temple flashes across the screen with spoken words. Announcer [Voiceover]: Two men, brothers in all but blood… Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi are seen walking down a long hallway, chatting quietly and laughing. Announcer [Voiceover]: Will be separated by death. Screen fades into a shot of Padme’s office interior. (Bail Organa) There’s been a casualty. (Padme Skywalker) Who was it? Which one of them was it? (Bail Organa) We don’t know. Announcer [Voiceover]: Goodbyes will be said. The Force Theme fades in the gentle tones of Funeral Pyre for a Jedi. Fade to a shot of Yoda resting his hand on Obi-Wan’s chest. (Yoda): Sleep well, youngling. Black covers the screen before morphing into a scene of Padme leaning down and softly kissing Obi-Wan’s cheek. (Padme): Rest well, my friend. Cut to a scene of Anakin standing in a doorway looking back at Obi-Wan’s still body. (Anakin): It is in dying we awake to eternal life. I’ll miss you. Announcer [Voiceover]: Decisions will be made. Funeral pyre for a Jedi gives way abruptly to Anakin’s Theme. The screen closes in on the Jedi Council chambers where Anakin is standing before the Council. (Anakin): I’ve decided to leave the Jedi Order. (Yoda): Too upset you are to make this decision. (Anakin): I failed in my most basic duty. I may not have still been his padawan, but it was still my responsibility as his friend to be there. I wasn’t and because of that I have no right to call myself a Jedi. (Yoda): The Chosen One, you are! (Anakin): You don’t trust me. You never have. (Yoda): Trust you, I do. The screen closes tightly on Anakin’s face. Announcer [Voiceover]: Secrets will be revealed. Anakin’s Theme fades as Across the Stars begins to build. (Anakin): Senator Amidala...Padme and I were married almost four years ago. She now carries my child. Announcer [Voiceover]: As one man begins his manipulation. Across the Stars shifts effortlessly into the Emperor’s Theme. The scene shifts and we see the interior of Palpatine’s office. (Palpatine): If you allow yourself to develop your powers to their true potential, you can learn the secret to manipulating life itself. (Anakin): It doesn’t matter. I can’t bring back Obi-Wan or my mother. (Palpatine): No, but you can keep from losing anyone else. Announcer [Voiceover]: A friend will return. Anakin is seen sitting alone in a grassy filed, eyes closed as he meditates. The Emperor’s Theme fades and we again hear the Force Theme. (Obi-Wan): Anakin. (Anakin): Master! But…how? Where? (Obi-Wan): I’ve come to help you with your future. (Anakin): I’m not worthy of being a Jedi anymore. I failed you. The music abruptly stops. Announcer [Voiceover]: A loved one will disappear. Screen rapidly shifts to the villa the Skywalker’s are staying in. (Palpatine): Good afternoon, Padme. I’m here to speak with Anakin if he’s available. (Padme): He’s not here right now. Would you like to come in and wait? (Palpatine): I’ve become aware of a plot to overthrow me as Chancellor. (Padme): By whom? (Palpatine): I'm not sure exactly, but I believe several senators may be involved and I could use your help in exposing them. (Padme): I’m sorry, Chancellor. The Emperor’s Theme begins again. Cut to a close-up shot of a sneering Palpatine. (Palpatine): No, but you will be. Announcer [Voiceover]: A web of lies will be spun. Screen shows the interior of the villa. (Palpatine): Oh Anakin, thank goodness you’re here. (Mace Windu): What happened here? (Palpatine): Several men clad in black broke down the door and grabbed Padme. Announcer [Voiceover]: A battle will begin. (Palpatine): Anakin, I know I’m your best chance at finding Padme before she’s harmed. (Yoda): All lies you have told. Know where Senator Skywalker is you do. (Palpatine): Anakin...you...can’t...believe...It’s a mistake, Anakin. I don’t know where Padme is. (Mace): Anakin, search your feelings and you’ll know who’s telling the truth. Music fades into Yoda’s Theme. Cut to Anakin meditating alone in a grassy field as visions begin assaulting his senses. We see Padme struggling with Palpatine. Announcer [Voiceover]: A choice will be made. (Anakin): I need your help, Masters. I can't rescue Padme and go after Chancellor Palpatine. (Yoda): Let go of your fear you must. Help your wife you cannot, if calm you are not. Yoda’s Theme blends into the Force Theme. Announcer [Voiceover]: A bond is renewed. Scene shift to the interior of a ship in the darkness of space. (Obi-Wan): Are you ready to begin your training? (Anakin): What kind of training? (Obi-Wan): The kind that will strengthen your mental shielding and help you to control your emotions. Scenes flow across the screen. We see Anakin in deep meditation before the screen shows Anakin in the midst of complicated katas and simulated lightsaber combat. Announcer [Voiceover]: As destiny and fate collide. (Palpatine): Give in to your anger. Once again we here the Emperor’s Theme. (Obi-Wan): Trust the Force. (Palpatine): Trust me. We see Anakin breathing heavily, his eyes focused on Palpatine as he hears Obi-Wan’s words. (Anakin): Yes, my Master. Announcer [Voiceover]: In an explosion that will forever change the galaxy as we know it. (Palpatine): The Jedi won't save her. We see Anakin jump to his feet, hand outstretched. (Anakin): I find your lack of faith in the Jedi Order disturbing, Your Excellency. (Palpatine): You fool! I offered unlimited power! The music stops, the screen fades to black and we hear the unmistakable snap-hiss of a lightsaber as a blue glow is seen. (Anakin): I don't need unlimited power; I have enough of my own. It ends here Chancellor, or should I call you Lord Sidious? Another snap-hiss is heard in the dark and a red hue joins the blue glow of Anakin’s lightsaber. (Palpatine): You won't defeat me, Anakin. Anakin and Palpatine are fighting furiously. Anakin is seen pressing his height advantage, pushing Palpatine back. (Palpatine): That's…it Anakin. Use your…anger…your hate. (Anakin): This ends now, Lord Sidious. Announcer [Voiceover]: When all is said and done… Yoda’s Theme begins to play. Anakin comes in to view, standing with Padme before a ship as Yoda approaches. (Yoda): Going to say goodbye, were you? (Anakin): I didn't think I could, Master. It hurts to leave; to say the words. (Yoda): Not goodbye then; May the Force be with you, Youngling. We see Anakin and Padme board the ship as Yoda looks on with a sad look on his face. The ship lifts off and is quickly out of Yoda’s sight. (Yoda): Goodbye, Youngling. Announcer [Voiceover]: The will of the Force cannot be denied. Music shifts into Across the Stars. The scene is Naboo. Anakin is standing on the balcony. Newborn twins, Luke and Leia are in his arms as he stares off into the distance. The scene shifts to Anakin’s point of view and we see the shimmering images of Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon come into view. (Anakin): Masters. Anakin holds up his children and sees his mentors smile and nod before fading from view. Anakin smiles to himself before he turns and walks back inside the villa to a waiting Padme. Scene fades on a shot of Anakin and Padme smiling as each hold a baby. It was the Will of the Force. Story complete and available for reading in the Saga.
