Star Wars Episode 3 Trailer

Star Wars Episode 3 Trailer. AOL has the new Star Wars trailer online. I have watched it about 20 times now. I saw the first Star Wars movie when I was 7 in 1977. The whole Star Wars universe has been a part of me ever since. I am now 35 and I eagerly await the release of the film on May 19th. I would take vacation and go wait in line for the next two months but I know my wife will not let me.

All six Star Wars movies are in essence the story of Anakin Skywalker (aka Darth Vader). It recounts his messianic life from his immaculate conception, his rise, his fall, and his eventual salvation before his death. This is the Christian belief that no one is ever beyond the reach of redemption. It is also has the elements of Greek Hero Myth. George Lucas knows how to tell his fables.

This is probably the last Star Wars ever. I'll just have to savor it. "Lord Vader, Rise!"
