Wrapping up the prequel films edition of our Star Wars video recaps is this under-three-minute catch-up for Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. This film comes after the start of the galactic conflict known as the Clone War and sees the Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker embroiled in a conflict between the Republic and the Separatists. A wedge is driven between the Skywalker and Kenobi, fostered by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, who is much more than he claims to be.
Though fans got a taste of CG Yoda in action in the previous film, this installment features quite a bit of the lightsaber-wielding, Force-mastering Jedi legend. It’s easily the best part of the film because, while the story is classically tragic, the execution comes up short. In an effort to maximize your efficiency, we’ve recapped the entire movie in under three minutes, which should give you plenty of time to watch Star Wars: The Clone Wars for a much better portrayal of Skywalker’s slow descent to the Dark Side.

Here’s the official synopsis for Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith:
Years after the onset of the Clone Wars, the noble Jedi Knights lead a massive clone army into a galaxy-wide battle against the Separatists. When the sinister Sith unveil a thousand-year-old plot to rule the galaxy, the Republic crumbles and from its ashes rises the evil Galactic Empire. Jedi hero Anakin Skywalker is seduced by the dark side of the Force to become the Emperor’s new apprentice — Darth Vader. The Jedi are decimated, as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Jedi Master Yoda are forced into hiding. The only hope for the galaxy are Anakin’s own offspring — the twin children born in secrecy who will grow up to become heroes.
