The Internet has been ringing off the hook with the buzz over the latest Star Wars III full length trailer, which premiered last thursday during the O.C. Many people tuned in to get even a clue to the question which has been plauging us since the dawn of mankind: What is the meaning of life!. Nope, not that one. Rather: how did Anakin Skywalker become Darth Vader? Ever since, “Star Wars” and “Revenge of the Sith” have been leaders in the blog rankings on Yahoo! Buzz Index.
The full length trailer was just as big a tease as the teaser trailers in my opinion. Yes I know, I did watch the O.C. just to see it. I am a fan but that’s as far as I go. I will not be camping out in line and I will not be living in my parent’s basement at 36 with a stormtrooper costume as my prize posession.
Well Star Wars fans already know what the plot should “look” like. Expecting the eradication of the Jedis, the rise of the empire and of course Anakin joining the dark side.
How? Perhaps George Lucas will give some hints this Sunday on 60 Minutes. But until May 19th I doubt any loose lips will sink this ship.
Here is a European teaser trailer, not the full length but a little different from the american one.
