Here is information I read on the trailer, out in November!


The first half of trailer consists of a familiar voice over with Alec Guinness. Fans will love to hear him speak his monologue to Luke from A New Hope about "Jedi Knights always being the guardians of peace." As we hear these familiar phrases, they've intercut shots from various Star Wars episodes, excluding Episode 3. Only when the monologue ends with "Vader was seduced by the dark side of the Force" about 40 seconds into the trailer do we see the face of Anakin. He is partly covered with dark hood, looking positively evil.
This is followed by the shot of erupting volcanoes, then some sort of volcanic field with crab-like creatures and then darkness, all accompanied by Vader breathing. Then the following is heard:

Sidious: "Lord Vader..."

Vader: "Yes?"

Sidious: "Rise."

Then we see Anakin in full Vader gear rising on some sort of operating table to which he is chained. The rising is slow and is intercut with shot of various Star Wars main characters. When the table has fully risen so that Vader is basically standing upright, the meatiest part of trailer begins, with many, many shots from Episode III. Most of them are very, very short - this will be something for freeze-frame fanatics to analyze.

The ones that stuck in my memory:

Dozens of Wookiees on some sort of floating platform.

Padme with signature Leia hairdo.

The Tri-Fighter, aka the precursor to the TIE fighter with three curving wings and guns mounted between each wing. They shoot red lasers.

The ARC Clonefigthter, aka the precursor to X-Wing, with three wings on each side.

A gigantic starship being sprayed by streams of something that looks like dense acid.

The trailer ends with the title "THE SAGA IS COMPLETE - MAY 2005" and is about 100 seconds long.

...

Anakin's reply to Palpatine is Yes, Master? and not just "Yes" and previsouly reported. Sweet. It is said somehow questioningly, as if he is not exactly sure what is happening.
Palpatine's "Riiiiiiiiise" is so devilish and long, they've clearly spent some time on making this section of the film perfect. Still finding it hard to believe they are going to show this section so early. Wow.

We've been told that the voice of Vader is ... close ... but definitely sounds different from the original Darth Vader. There should be no doubt that Lucas could make him sound perfectly like the classic Vader if he wanted, so this must be intentional. After all, it's logical that teenage Anakin under the Vader mask sounds slightly different than old Anakin in Episode IV under the same mask. We think it is either an early cut without finished effects (voice and visual) or Hayden Christensen's voice modulated through some advanced filters to sound very, very much like Jones. If you played this to casual moviegoer, he or she may not even notice any difference from Vader's classic voice.

And to clarify an earlier point or two, the lines of dialogue we posted are spoken over completely black screen right after the volcanic field shot. And the Tri-fighter we mentioned is actually the new Jedi starfighter.

There are no mechanical characters in the trailer except R2D2 and C3PO, not even for a split second. There is someone with sharp teeth and humanoid head, slightly resembling the alien from Enemy Mine. Someone should post a picture here for comparison, though it might just be Tion Meddon. So unless its the off chance that is Grievous unmasked, the Droid General does not figure into this first trailer.

I'm surprised nobody's revived this before now.

The Revenge of the Sith teaser trailer was released today and it's exactly what was described in the report TBT quoted earlier in this thread. It was every bit as great as I'd imagined. ;)

There really are no words-- this is the one Star Wars fans have been waiting for. The prelude with Obi-Wan's dialogue sets up the journey perfectly and creates the sense that, This is it. The final chapter. The initial shot of Anakin beneath the hood is downright creepy; his eyes almost seem reptilian. Palpatine's "Rise" is delivered incredibly well. And James Earl Jones... :D

The Wookies bring home the Star Wars feel, the duel with Obi-Wan looked spectacular, the hateful look of Anakin was excellent, Sidious waving a lightsaber looked ominous and almost Smeagol/Gollum-ish...

I'm a Star Wars fan, what can I say. Excellent job on the trailer. :D

I believe it's available online as an AOL exclusive, as well as for SW.com Hyperspace members. It's been airing on TV all day, though. I caught it on Access Hollywood (naturally I taped it), but I understand Total Request Live also aired it.

Of course, I'd gladly go see The Incredibles for a big screen viewing (not that I didn't plan to already). ;)

and i just wanted to say, this proves me RIGHT, that Anakin's disfiguration will happen in the beginning/middle of the movie.

additionally, someone pointed out some stuff i never realized:

The emperor gets Anakin to kill Dooku to take his place as the second Sith

which the emperor had Luke do to Vader in RoTJ. I never picked up on that.

It's pretty good, but the special effects seemed kind of, more fake I suppose would be the term to use.
