Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith – Behind the Scenes

It’s been over 10 years now since Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, the last instalment of the Star Wars prequel trilogy, hit the big screen bringing to a close a much maligned and opinion-splitting return for the Star Wars saga.

Revenge of the Sith is almost universally considered the better of the three prequels as we follow Anakin Skywalker’s transition to the dark side, becoming Darth Vader in the process.

As we’ve done with Jurassic Park and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, we’ve plucked out some of our favourite behind the scenes shots showing some impressive sets, scale models and George Lucas’s favourite green screen.

1. From the opening starfighter skirmish… hope you like blue screens

2. Featuring everyone’s favourite R2 droid

3. The set of General Grievous’ Invisible Hand command bridge

4. Engaging in battle with two MagnaGuards

5. Ian McDiarmid, Hayden Christensen, George Lucas and Ewan McGregor on set

6. On set with a green screen backdrop

7. A set of the Jedi Temple communication centre

8. An awesome scale set build of Utapau

9. Obi-Wan taking shelter after the execution of Order 66

10. Palpatine vs Mace Windu

11. A suspended Mace Windu after his window fall, with blue screens of course

12. Anthony Daniels in part C3-PO costume

13. McGregor and Christensen in costume during fight choreography

14. On the Mustafar set during the final battle

15. Post-battle on the Mustafar set, showing the blue screen effect for Vader’s lost legs and arm

16. Some incredible practical effects for Vader’s Mustafar injuries

17. And finally, Peter Mayhew’s cameo appearance as Chewbacca

With the election upon us and the campaigning time so short, we thought it's worth giving everyone a quick recap of the parties. However, rather than just do them as normal I'm going to compare them to the Big Bads of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
