The third episode is the conclusion to the prequel trilogy, whose consequences lead to the events of the original trilogy – which came first. At times discussing Star Wars and its episodes is like discussing time travel.
Mind-boggling topics are always fun and stimulating, and Star Wars provides both. Delve into the faraway galaxy yet again with Episode III and contemplate the complexity and diversity of its characters, its plots and its worlds until December brings fresh revelations for all fans.
