Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith takes place two years after the events of Attack of the Clones and nineteen years before the events of A New Hope. The film chronicles the final days in the career of Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and the tragic events that propel him to embrace the Dark Side of the Force, ultimately transforming him into the villainous Darth Vader. Many characters from the prequel films return for Episode III including Chancellor Palpatine, Count Dooku, Mace Windu, Yoda, C-3PO, R2-D2 and Obi-Wan Kenobi. In the waning days of the Clone Wars, the heroes of the Republic strike a major blow against their enemies with the defeat of Count Dooku, but a new threat looms on the horizon - the cybernetic supreme commander of the droid armies - General Grievous. Chancellor Palpatine continues to manipulate events in his favor, slowly seducing Anakin Skywalker to embrace the Dark Side of the Force.
