A great addition to the "Star Wars" legacy !!!
8 July 2005 | by (Pennsylvania, United States) – See all my reviews

Although titled "A Musical Journey", this DVD ( that acts as a bonous disc to the soundtrack to "Episode III" ) is much more. Hosted by Ian McDiarmid, who stole the show in "Revenge of the Sith" & "Return of the Jedi", w/ his over-the-top portrayal of Dantius Palpatine, this disc tells the story, in its chronological order, using select tracks from the six film scores ( a 'greatest hits', if you will ). W/ McDiarmid's narration, the best of the best scenes from all of the films, & the always-stunning score, this 71 minute feature is a wonderfuly edited synopsis of the entire "Star Wars Saga".

Interesting to note, this program is an excellent way to introduce the films to those who are interested, yet un-educated in what is the "Star Wars Saga". I experimented this theory w/ a friend who knows only a bit about "Star Wars". By the time the credits were rolling, she wanted not only to see the six films, but to view "A Musical Journey" again.

Also, it does bring to light, full-circle, what Lucas wants us to know, i.e., the reason he made the prequel trilogy ; that the "Star Wars Saga" is about the rise, fall & redemption Anakin Skywalker, as opposed to Luke. This puts to shame many of the 'bonouses' which we, as consumers are now overwhelmed w/, thanks to the invention of digital audio/video. For the casual fan, this is a real treat that will put the story into simple perspective. For the die-hard fan ( like myself ), this is a must-have in your collection. To me, almost as important as owning the films themselves.

For any musicians out there, it's a nice touch that McDiarmid was filmed @ London's Abby Road Studio.
