    After breaking box-office records and bringing the "Star Wars" saga to
    an astounding close, the biggest movie of the year gets even bigger
    when "Revenge of the Sith" debuts on DVD Nov. 1 in a two-disc set that
    brings remarkable new insight into the creation of this action-filled

    The Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith DVD promises an
    experience that will thrill "Star Wars" fans worldwide, says Jim Ward,
    the DVD's executive producer and Senior Vice President of Lucasfilm

    "The fact that 'Revenge of the Sith' was produced digitally means that
    the picture and sound on this DVD are truly extraordinary," Ward said.
    "On top of that, the hours of bonus material allow fans to explore the
    movie in a multitude of ways. For this final 'Star Wars' movie, we
    wanted to deliver a DVD that would capture the excitement and fun of
    'Revenge of the Sith,' and we hope that fans will agree that we've
    accomplished that."

    The centerpiece of the bonus materials is "Within a Minute," a newly
    produced feature that offers unprecedented insight into the complexity
    of creating a single 49-second sequence of "Revenge of the Sith." From
    pre-production artists to costume designers, from camera operators to
    make-up artists, from sound designers to musicians, "Within a Minute"
    showcases the massive amount of work that goes into one short
    sequence. This one-of-a-kind journey was created from more than 600
    hours of material gathered throughout the process of making "Revenge
    of the Sith" and is hosted by Episode III's producer, Rick McCallum.

    "There are hundreds of names and jobs in the end credits of 'Revenge
    of the Sith' -- but hardly anyone understands just what all of those
    people do and what an enormous contribution they make to the movie,"
    said Tippy Bushkin, the documentary's director. "By focusing on less
    than 60 seconds of the movie, 'Within a Minute' is almost a 'mini-film
    school' in which Rick and George examine the entire process of making
    Episode III in a fun and fascinating way."

    In addition to "Within a Minute," the "Revenge of the Sith" DVD offers
    a host of special features that illuminate the process of creating the
    epic interstellar adventure. Among them are deleted scenes that bring
    new perspective to the Star Wars saga.

    "The deleted scenes include one that fans have been waiting a long
    time to see, one that shows Yoda arriving on the swamp-planet of
    Dagobah, where Luke Skywalker meets him in 'The Empire Strikes Back,'"
    Ward said. "George worked with Industrial Light & Magic and Episode
    III Producer Rick McCallum to finish most of these scenes with
    complete visual effects and sound design, and they bring a new
    perspective to the movie."

    The DVD bonus features also include a newly recorded audio commentary
    featuring Lucas and key members of the movie's crew. In addition, the
    DVD offers a pair of brand-new featurettes -- "The Chosen One" and
    "It's All for Real" -- that look at two of the movie's most popular
    aspects: Anakin Skywalker's transformation into Darth Vader; and the
    creation of the amazing stunts in the climactic lightsaber duel
    between Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

    In addition to its Nov. 1 DVD debut in the U.S. and Canada, Star Wars:
    Episode III Revenge of the Sith will be released in most major
    territories around the world on or about the same day

    "Arguing with anonymous strangers on the Internet is a sucker's game
    because they almost always turn out to be -- or to be indistinguishable from
    -- self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time."
    - Neil Stephenson, _Cryptonomicon_
