I don't know about anyone else, but I can definitely say that my Episode III focus is on the main points of the completion of the saga and especially the moments leading up to Anakin's fall to the dark side. I'm sure that I'm not alone in hopes that there is some well played out extra/filler stuff. But that is not what the focus should be on. Too often I see fans falls into the "fanboy" trap by spending too much effort speculating on what some random background character (esp. Kit Fisto) is going to do, and forget what this film is really about. The Saga as a whole is about the rise, fall, and redemption of Anakin Skywalker and the people he interacts with along the way. When I say this, I mean the main people, as in the "starring" characters. The saga is also partially about Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, Yoda, Padme, Palpatine, Jar Jar, Dooku, Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, Lando, R2-D2, and C-3PO. Those are who I view as the most important characters in the saga, and all others fall into either the "almost important" or "not at all important" category. The "background characters" act as fillers who are conveniently placed in the story to further it along, but could easily be replaced by someone else and not have an impact on the story, unlike if you replaced Obi-Wan with someone else. Of course, these background characters are part of what makes the saga exist, and without them the movies would be boring. However, the fact remains that amidst all of the anticipation and speculation for Episode III, they should be just as background in your mind as they are in the saga. Another journey of speculation and anticipation lies with Anakin after his complete turn to the dark side. It seems there is a lot of focus around the internet on who he kills first or what he does--perfectly fine unless you don't care why he does it--the fault in many fan's anticipation. Without the scenes leading up to his turn, the turn itself would not make sense. We already know what he is like as Vader; we have seen the Classic Trilogy. The prequels are about his rise and fall: the fall being at the end of the prequel journey. I hope that we do not see any more of the dark side Anakin in the prequels than we do of the light side Anakin in the classic trilogy. The saga is split down the middle with two trilogies, and they should contrast each other and yet mirror each other at hte same time in regards to Anakin. The contrast is him in his light and dark side mode; the mirror is the time in each respective condition and possibly even dealing with how each set of circumstances took place. Anakin has a journey to make in Episode III and a lot to do on that journey. I can't wait to see what that journey consists of--in other words the "how" and "why" of his turn to the dark side. And of course the deaths of Padme and Dooku are important along this path--as well as the complete downfall of the Jedi Order, the choices of Obi-Wan and Yoda, and the birth of the twins. If those things are what you really carea bout while heading into Episode III, your enjoyment of hte film will be much greater than if your main desire is to see the "kewl" background characters and "awesome" special effects and "badass Vader" killing everyone in sight. These films are about the characters and story first, and the other stuff after that. All fans should think the same way as well. If you do, I commend you.
