    The Ultimate Star Wars Celebration Rocks the Galaxy Nov. 1 With Simultaneous Debuts of Revenge of the Sith DVD and Star Wars Battlefront II Game

    Wide Array of Revenge of the Sith DVD Special Features Plus the Addition of Space Combat and Playable Jedi in Star Wars Battlefront II Bring a New Level of Adventure and Excitement to the Star Wars Galaxy

    HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (July 26, 2005) - The epic intergalactic adventure of the Star Wars saga is finally complete, and audiences can celebrate the unforgettable fun and thrills of STAR WARS: EPISODE III REVENGE OF THE SITH when the year's biggest box-office hit debuts Nov. 1 from Fox Home Entertainment and Lucasfilm Ltd. The simultaneous release of Star Wars Battlefront II, the sequel to the best-selling Star Wars video game of all time, makes Nov. 1 a milestone day in Star Wars history.

    The two-disc REVENGE OF THE SITH DVD will include a brand-new, full-length documentary produced by Lucasfilm Ltd.; two new featurettes - one exploring the prophecy of Anakin Skywalker as the Chosen One, the other providing an in-depth look at the movie's eye-popping stunts; and a 15-part collection of Lucasfilm's groundbreaking "web documentaries."

    "REVENGE OF THE SITH gave audiences an extraordinary experience, and we want this DVD to do the same," said Jim Ward, Vice President of Marketing and Distribution for Lucasfilm Ltd. "From the beginning of production, George wanted to be sure we chronicled everything that went into the making of Episode III specifically to create an incredible DVD experience. This DVD has literally been three years in the making, and it's going to be a fantastic way to complete the Star Wars saga at home."

    Adding to the in-home Star Wars adventure is the release on Nov. 1 of the eagerly anticipated Star Wars Battlefront II from LucasArts - the sequel to the best-selling Star Wars video game of all time. Star Wars Battlefront II adds all-new space combat, playable Jedi characters, and never-before-seen environments straight out of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. The game will be released for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, Xbox video game system from Microsoft, Windows platforms and Sony PSP. Fans of the original Star Wars Battlefront will also enjoy an all-new single-player experience that takes players through an epic, story-based saga centering on Darth Vader's elite 501st Legion of Stormtroopers where every action the player takes impacts the battlefront and, ultimately, the fate of the Star Wars galaxy.

    The REVENGE OF THE SITH DVD will offer access to a special Xbox-playable demo of two entire levels from LucasArts' Star Wars Battlefront II.

    "The combination of Revenge of the Sith on DVD and Star Wars Battlefront II makes Nov. 1 a watershed day for Star Wars fans. It's really going to be a terrific celebration of the entire saga," Ward said.

    In addition to its debut in the U.S. and Canada, Revenge of the Sith debuts on DVD in most major territories around the world on or about the same day.

    The DVD release of STAR WARS: EPISODE III REVENGE OF THE SITH marks the first time that fans can own all six episodes of the saga. "After seeing REVENGE OF THE SITH, moviegoers around the world told us that they immediately wanted to watch Episode IV to see how the entire saga comes together, and now they'll be able to do just that, making the Star Wars experience richer and more exciting than ever," Ward said.

    In REVENGE OF THE SITH, the Clone Wars rage, widening the rift between Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) and the Jedi Council. Young Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker ( Hayden Christensen) is caught in the middle, his allegiances torn. Seduced by promises of power and temptations of the dark side, he pledges himself to evil Darth Sidious, becoming Darth Vader. Together, the Sith Lords set in motion a plot of revenge against the Jedi. Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) tries to turn Anakin back to the light side, leading to a climactic lightsaber battle that will decide the fate of the galaxy.
