*Oh, 'tis my 4000th post !* :p

 

OK. Im sure there are many among us who are super spoilerised and this would be old news to them... Im posting this for the casual minor spoiler type of person(which is the most numerous as indicated by my poll!)

 

Last week the opening scroll was revealed on the official SW site, in an article by John Knoll about creating the opening crawl effect for the SW movies :)

 

here's the original article:

http://www.starwars.com/episode-iii/bts/production/f20050126/indexp2.html

 

here's the crawl text for those interested. Sorta like the teaser, it is 90% predictable, but there are definitely some plot spoiler elements.....

 

I would be interested to hear others comments on *this* alone. I am trying to be spoiler free, so I didnt really want to go to the Ep3 spoiler forum to track this down :(

 

Opening Crawl :

 

 

[align=center]EPISODE III

 

REVENGE OF THE SITH

 

War! The Republic is crumbling

under attacks by the ruthless

Sith Lord, Count Dooku.

There are heroes on both sides.

Evil is everywhere.

 

In a stunning move, the

fiendish droid leader, General

Grievous, has swept into the

Republic capital and kidnapped

Chancellor Palpatine, leader

of the Galactic Senate.

 

As the Separatist Droid Army

attempts to flee the besieged

capital with their valuable

hostage, two Jedi Knights lead a

desperate mission to rescue the

captive Chancellor...[/align]

 

 

so, what do y'all think ??

Argh. My crappy mouse has been acting up and it highlighted part of the spoiler :(. Its ok, I only know a little.

 

Then why come into a thread clearly marked "spoilers"? Or was that your mouse playing up again? "Honest Mum, I wasn't looking at the porn - it was the mouse!" ;)

 

By the way, if this thread marks Astro's 4000th post, then it also marks my 1500th. And it only took me three years!

I was playing counter-strike after that post and My gun was going all over the screen. So, I got a new mouse an all is well.
