Excerpt from Revenge of the Sith: Illustrated Screenplay: Star Wars: Episode III by George Lucas
THE FINAL SCRIPT OF STAR WARS: EPISODE III REVENGE OF THE SITH
What follows is the final script by George Lucas, accompanied by many final frames from the movie. The script is the result of a rough draft and four subsequent drafts ' all written before principal photography began in Sydney, Australia ' as well as extensive revisions made during postproduction, including new scenes added during the pickups at Shepperton Studios in England (for a detailed description of Lucas's writing process, see The Making of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith). An example of previous revisions can be seen by comparing two versions of the film's opening crawl:
APRIL 13, 2003
War! General Grievous, commander of the separatist armies, has attacked Coruscant, the capital of the Republic, and has been driven back by the Jedi Commanders and their army of clones.
Evil is everywhere. There are heroes on both sides. Separatist commandos have kidnapped Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, leader of the Galactic Senate.
In the midst of the battle, two Jedi have discovered the starship where Chancellor Palpatine is being held captive and are attempting a rescue. . . .
JUNE 26, 2003
War! The Republic is crumbling under the brutal attacks by the Separatist leader, Count Dooku. There are heroes on both sides. Evil is everywhere.
In a stunning move, the dreaded Separatist General Grievous has swept into the Republic capital and kidnapped Chancellor Palpatine, leader of the Galactic Senate.
As the Separatist Droid Army attempts to flee the besieged Capital with their valuable hostage, two Jedi Knights lead a desperate mission to rescue the captive Chancellor. . . .
Not only did Lucas change the script from draft to draft, he altered it extensively in the editing room, by moving scenes around, deleting some, adding others, and inter-cutting many. As a result, the scene numbers attributed to the shooting script used on the set in Sydney are different from those of the final script. For easy reader reference, scene numbers in parentheses refer to the shooting script scene number, as they appear in the Art of and Making of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.
