Episode II becomes I…episode II is all Clone War…is very dark.
Here is my Episode III-
I would have rather seen Anakin’s turn occur when he killed the current apprentice…since Lucas said the entire story is about Anakin’s tragic life, his turn should have been a sympathetic one…I think he should be seen as reckless and impatient, always on the good side, but prone to spells of rage where his mind goes black. His final turn should be an immediate one, that happens in one of these spells.
The Senate is fracturing into two sides…one side led by Amidala and others…the Jedi are basically on their side, however both sides have merit to their points and most Jedi are torn, and wish for a quick resolution to the issue(I haven’t thought about this enough to actually come up with an issue…maybe some of the systems want a peaceful end to the clone wars). Palpatine begins mentoring Anakin. The peace movement gains momentum within the Senate. Palpatine is a leader of this movement
1)As the coalition of systems supporting the war breaks apart, a vote is proposed that will end the war. Knowing that the peaceful group will win, Palpatine orders Dooku to kidnap several senators…he takes them to the lava planet(name?) Palpatine takes more control of the Senate, and nudges them toward a more warlike stance again. Palpatine orders Dooku to never let the hostages go alive, since they could push the senate back into a more peaceful stance.
2)Obi-wan and Anankin are off on some mission. Amidala organizes an escape attempt. Anakin and Obi-wan discover the location of the hostages, but Obi-wan delays the rescue(to finish the mission, or take the info to the Jedi council, who debate a course of action, before finally allowing Obi-wan and Anakin to go)
3)Dooku seriously injures Amidala in the escape attempt, and kills the other hostages. Our heroes arrive just as the last hostages are being gunned down.
4)Anakin sees Amidala, and assumes she is dead. His mind goes black, he kills Dooku, and at this point becomes the new apprentice. Then, unable to revive her, turns to blame Obi Wan for delaying the rescue attempt, and they duel, and Anakin falls into the lava.
5)Obi-wan realizes she is still alive and gets her safely to someone who can deliver the babies before she passes.
6)Palpatine rescues Anakin. The peace movement(rebellion), the droid army, the Jedi Council, Obi-wan, Dooku, and the Senate who couldnt vote one way or another are responsible for Amidalas death. Palpatine tells him to join him and they will exact revenge on everyone and everything left. Vader is born, blinded by hate for everyone he blames.
