Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padmé, while Obi-Wan investigates an assassination attempt on the Senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.
After the rebels have been brutally overpowered by the Empire on their newly established base, Luke Skywalker takes advanced Jedi training with Master Yoda, while his friends are pursued by Darth Vader as part of his plan to capture Luke.
As the Clone Wars near an end, the Sith Lord Darth Sidious steps out of the shadows, at which time Anakin succumbs to his emotions, becoming Darth Vader and putting his relationships with Obi-Wan and Padme at risk.
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a wookiee and two droids to save the universe from the Empire's world-destroying battle-station, while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader.
This is hilarious! If anyone gets the chance to set five minutes aside to see this movie, go for it! This film is not really a film. This is more the kind of story you would make up while playing with your action figures or LEGO sets, only it's been committed to film. Typically found at lego.com, this film tells the "real story" of how Han Solo (frozen in carbonite) got aboard the Slave I (Boba Fett's ship). After the freezing, Darth Vader, Lobot, Leia, Boba Fett, Chewie, Luke, and a cabal of others scurry to claim Han as their own. The musical score (more whimisical than musical) only heightens the excitement our heroes must be feeling. I remember seeing this for the first time, and it inspired me to make my own SW shorts.
