STAR WARS: EPISODES I-III

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS

The heroic Jedi Knights struggle to maintain order and restore peace. More and more systems are falling prey to the forces of the dark side as the Galactic Republic slips further and further under the sway of the Separatists and their never-ending droid army. Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan learner Ahsoka Tano find themselves on a mission with far-reaching consequences, one that brings them face-to-face with crime lord Jabba the Hutt. But Count Dooku and his sinister agents, including the nefarious Asajj Ventress, will stop at nothing to ensure that Anakin and Ahsoka fail at their quest. Meanwhile, on the front lines of the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Master Yoda lead the massive clone army in a valiant effort to resist the forces of the dark side.

STAR WARS EPISODE VI: RETURN OF THE JEDI

Luke must save Han Solo (Harrison Ford) from the clutches of the monstrous Jabba the Hut, and bring down the newly reconstructed--and even more powerful--Death Star. With Han Solo imprisoned, Luke accompanies his faithful droids R2D2 and C3PO in a rescue bid, with Princess Leia and Chewbacca also lending a hand. After they valiantly disentangle their friends from Jabba's clutches, Luke returns to his Jedi Knight training with Jedi master Yoda. Meanwhile, the Rebel Troops amass in an attempt to see off the impending threat from Darth Vader and his new Death Star, with the operation being lead by Han Solo. But Luke must face Vader himself if he is to become a true Jedi Knight, and as he enters into a spirited battle with his light sabre-wielding enemy, some surprising revelations await the young warrior.

STAR WARS EPISODE V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

Considered the most morally and emotionally complex of the original Star Wars trilogy, The Rebel Forces--which include young adventurer Luke Skywalker, rogue pilot Han Solo, and the beautiful but seemingly humourless Princess Leia have been successful in destroying the Empire's Death Star. However, the Empire's top commander, the terrifying Lord Darth Vader is scanning the galaxy for the Rebels' secret location. Luke finds himself under the tutelage of the tiny but powerful old Jedi Master Yoda. Greek tragedy meets a philosophical hero's journey.

STAR WARS EPISODE IV: A NEW HOPE

Luke Skywalker, an impulsive but good hearted young man who lives on the dusty planet of Tatooine, longs for the exciting life of a Rebel soldier. The rebels are fighting against the evil Empire, which has set about destroying planets inhabited by innocent citizens with the Death Star. When Luke's aunt and uncle are murdered by the Empire's imperial stormtroopers and he mysteriously finds a distress message from Princess Leia in one of his androids, R2-D2, he must set out to find Obi-Wan Kenobi, a mysterious old hermit with incredible powers. On his journey, Luke is aided by the roguish, sarcastic mercenary Han Solo and his towering furry sidekick Chewbacca as they run into a host of perilous situations while trying to rescue the princess--and the entire galaxy.

STAR WARS EPISODE III: REVENGE OF THE SITH

Anakin Skywalker remains the Jedi apprentice of master Obi-Wan Kenobi. Battling dark forces that threaten the Republic, the duo quickly eliminates enemy Count Dooku, and Anakin proves as he states more than once that his powers have doubled. An intimidating warrior with superior knowledge of the Force, Anakin becomes the pet of Chancellor Palpatine, who is connected to the dark side. Meanwhile, Padme, the senator and former queen who is secretly married to Anakin, is pregnant, and Anakin is tortured by dreams of her dying in childbirth. With Obi-Wan on Utapau battling cyborg General Grievous, and Yoda joining the Wookiees of Kashyyyk, the sage warnings of the Jedi council go unheard by Anakin. His moodiness and glowering are a clear precursor to his inevitable, terrifying metamorphosis into Darth Vader, the dark leader of the evil Empire who haunts the remainder of the series.

STAR WARS EPISODE II: ATTACK OF THE CLONES

The most densely plotted instalment of the saga so far, Attack of the Clones is a tale of both Machiavellian political drama and doomed romance; it's epic war film and silly comic-book fantasy combined, as teenage Anakin Skywalker chafes at the restrictions imposed by his mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi and falls in love with Padme Amidala. Renegade Jedi Count Dooku is leading a breakaway federation of disgruntled systems; while the insidious influence of Darth Sidious is felt rather than seen as his invisible hand guides apparently unrelated events.

STAR WARS EPISODE I: THE PHANTOM MENACE

This spectacular two-disc DVD set was certainly worth the wait.
