Latter and Former[]

In the section "Death Star I", it should read "These conflicting accounts were retconned in The New Essential Chronology, which stated that the former was a testbed prototype for the superlaser to be installed on the latter." Aubri 14:04, May 10, 2010 (UTC)

  • I don't have The New Essential Chronology, but it seems to make more sense your way. Fixed. Axinal Convocation Chamber 16:04, May 10, 2010 (UTC)

On Mustafar, the article says that Anakin shouts "liar" to Padme, when actually he shouts it to Obi-Wan because Padme told him what Obi-Wan had said.

End of the Droids[]

In Star Wars Episode III, when Anakin is on Mustafar, Sidious tells him to order the immediate shutdown of all the droid armies. I understand that clones are smarter than droids, and that Palpatine had a good reason to shut the droids down. But what exactly was that "good reason?" It seems that if Palpatine had all the help he could get, the Empire would have won the war in the end

Any number of reasons, least of all cost in credits and resources. Wars are expensive, flipping a switch to shut down the droids isn't. In addition, Palpatine needed the Clone Army and other military forces on other missions, such as subjugating the world of his new Empire. He couldn't have them off fighting a droid army of his own creation. --OuroborosCobra 09:22, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
With the Separatist leaders dead, the war was over. The Droid Army no longer had a purpose. There was no need for the new Empire to destroy each and every droid in combat. JediHistorian 11:55, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
Makes sense to me! I keep forgetting that even after Palpatine is discovered, he is still playing "The good guy." Does that mean we can assume that Palpatine had no control over the droid army? I thought he could reprogram them so that they wouldn't fire on the clones now that they were "on the same side." Thanks a lot! Rebmaboss 17:18, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Tantive IV references[]

Throughout the article, it refers to Bail Organa's ship as the Tantive IV. Recently, it was retconed to be a different ship called the Sundered Heart. So all the references to the Tantive IV need to be changed to Sundered Heart. VadertheWhite (talk) 20:49, July 4, 2012 (UTC)

The article is semi-protected and won't let me edit it. Otherwise I would have. VadertheWhite (talk) 21:06, July 4, 2012 (UTC)

Meaning of Revenge of the Sith...[]

Why did the Sith want Revenge against the Jedi? The titular Revenge of the sith. I think it has something to do with Order 66 and the Sith wiping out the Jedi, but where did that information come from? The information about the meaning of the title. George Lucas?

Besides, why did the Sith want revenge against the Jedi? For losing a war? Or what?

Commander Fox Retcon Appearance[]

under the 'Appearances' section, it states that Commander Fox made a retcon apearance, but this is nowhere mentioned on Fox's page. Is there a source for this? -- 11:27, March 8, 2013 (UTC)

  • Please, if someone knows where this came from, let's find out. CC-1010 "Fox" (talk) 21:05, March 22, 2014 (UTC)
    • I think his Apperance should be removed until a source is found, if he did appear, I think it would be very hard to miss for obvious reasons. Arigro 'Vadum (talk) 06:10, October 27, 2014 (UTC)
      • I'm not personally familiar with the matter, so I don't feel comfortable making the edit myself. However, the fact that this appearance isn't listed on the character's page here on Wookieepedia would tend to suggest to me that you're right. If you're sure that this character isn't in the film, then we encourage you to be bold and remove the item yourself. ProfessorTofty (talk) 11:02, October 27, 2014 (UTC)

A mistake[]

"Palpatine's face being distorted by his backfired Force lightning" - I've found a mistake. It was to be "Palpatine's face IS being distorted by ..." Please, correct it. If I am wrong, correct me)Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

  • There is no mistake. His own Force lightning was reflected back to him, which caused the disfigurement of his face. There is no need to edit that image caption. Also, please remember to sign your comments by using four tildes (~~~~) or sign button above the edit box.--Dionne Jinn (Something to say?) 12:10, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

canon and legend[]

i don't think they should remove the extra content completely. Why can't the just simply split it between a canon version and legend version. user:roguewarrior23

  • The plot summary is really the only thing that will be split. The Appearances section will have both Legends and NuCanon. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit.svg Calrayn 01:02, September 7, 2014 (UTC)
  • That's a relief. I prefer the the legends plot myself and i don't care what those stiffs say is canon or not. user:roguewarrior23


I noticed a typo in this " He also tells Anakin Jedi by telling him that the Order wishes to overthrow the Republic and that if he has suspected it, Anakin must surely have sensed it". It should be "He also tells Anakin that the Order wishes to overthrow the Republic and that if he has suspected it, Anakin must surely have sensed it".

Please unlock this page briefly[]

I noticed some major typos in sentences and that some of the sentences end with a space between the last word and the period. If you can briefly unlock this page for me to fix it that'd be great.

I don't like the way the critical reaction page is phrased. It sort of singles out Portman for criticism. Generally, I think critics liked her performance better than Christensen's. (Not saying much, I know.) In any case, it seems like it is picking on her and praising everyone else. 23:56, November 23, 2015 (UTC)


There are three misspellings of the name "Grievous" on this page, can someone with authorization edit that please? Thanks. Geek'ari (talk) 04:02, February 22, 2016 (UTC)

Temple deleted scene[]

There was a deleted scene with Yoda and Obi-Wan arriving to the Temple on Coruscant only to be ambushed by clones who pretended to be Jedi survivors. Should be added.--Corbul (talk) 12:54, September 1, 2016 (UTC)

¿How much time pases in the course of this movie?[]

The film begins with Padme telling snaking that she is preagnant, and it ends with her giving birth. So... that means that this film takes place in the course of 9 months, am I right? or how much time does a pregnancy takes in the Star Wars galaxy?

  • She tells him she's pregnant, she doesn't say that she just became pregnant. The movie happens over the course of just a few days (about 5 days, if memory serves). — DigiFluid(Whine here) 20:26, June 2, 2018 (UTC)

Why isn't Matthew Wood in the starring part?[]

Matthew Wood was General Grievous why isn't he included? Frank Oz made the voice of Yoda but the body was either a puppet or CGI and he IS in it. Christopher Lee is in it even if he is a villain that has just a brief appeareance.Unsigned comment by LegnÁ 789 (talk • contribs).

  • The poster doesn't include Matthew Wood--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 09:38, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
  • This field is not for us to arbitrary decide who is featured and who is not. It's a movie industry thing, where the actors' agents negotiate several things like promotion, exhibition, and of course the paycheck. The pay of an actor is ratio of his celebrity and importance in a movie. This is expressed in the credits and movie posters, as the most importants actors are featured under "Starring".NanoLuukeCloning facility 09:46, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
    • Yeah But, Frank Oz isn't on the poster. A CGI model of Yoda is.Unsigned comment by LegnÁ 789 (talk • contribs).
      • Please, sign your messages, that's the second time I have to do it for you. And to answer you, you misunderstood, we're not talking about the art of the poster, but the written names it features. If you look, you will see that every name on the poster equal the list in "Starring". NanoLuukeCloning facility 20:45, 20 November 2020 (UTC)


Where are the Tarnabs and Dugs mentioned in the appearance section. Its understandable that the Tarnab might be hidden in the senate building, though I haven't seen evidence of any of the blurry blobs being Tarnabs, the dug appearance is not even listed on the Dug page. Also why is Kallidahin not in the appearances, I added it back, but they made a very big appearance in the end. I also know that Eeusu Estornii is confirmed through the Star Wars visual encyclopedia, but does anyone know where she can be seen in Padme’s funeral? Crowbuster (talk) 00:34, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

  • Eeusu's page says she was at Padme's funeral --Lewisr (talk) 00:45, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
