Flynn Adapted from Part I: "The Adventures of Obi-Wan Kenobi" The Journal of the Whills By George Lucas FADE IN: MAIN AND CREDIT TITLES SUPERIMPOSED ON THE BLACK OF OUTER SPACE -- pinpointed with piercing stars, several moons, and a bright-colored nebulae. As TITLES end -- The following is related in the story, roll-up format: Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away, the Old Republic was crumbling away, rotting from the corruption and treachery within. Power-hungry technocrats and wealthy bureaucrats maneuvered and bribed their way into office, while one am- bitious senator plotted to destroy the Jedi and rule the galaxy. Hoping to restore virtue and the remembered glory of the Republic, the High Council of Senators dispatched the Jedi Knights - protectorate of justice in the galaxy - on a quest to retrieve the lost Kaiburr Crystal. They believed that the small diamond-like object (which intensified the power of the Force) would unite the disaffected among the people and would destroy the corruption around them. However, within their Council, the evil Senator Palpatine had other traitorous designs. Foreseeing that the Crystal would secure his position as Emperor, Palpatine deceived one of the Jedi Knights and sent him to acquire the Crystal. . . DISSOLVE TO: June 6, 2002 FALL OF THE REPUBLIC Page 2 SCENE 1: Sigma Vulcanus -- a new, evolving world, that is con- stantly being shook by violent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, and which is devoid of sentient life-forms. On the molten, volcanic world of Sigma Vulcanus, Anakin Skywalker, a handsome, swarthy man with a dignified stature, makes an important discovery. Using his lightsabre (as the equivalent of a divining rod), he uncovers the legendary Kaiburr Crystal. It pulsates with energy and fills Skywalker with a false sense of power and importance. But before he can savor his triumph, and return the Crystal to Palpatine, he is confronted by his old friend, and fellow Jedi Knight, Obi-Wan Kenobi and requested to explain his actions. Anakin refuses, and instantly, the two knights draw their lethal weapons and become locked in mortal combat. Anakin Skywalker, as if controlled by another force, strikes swiftly in rage, but Obi-Wan Kenobi, the more experienced Jedi, easily deflects the furious blows of his young opponent. "Let go of the Crystal, my friend! Its power will consume you and turn you against the Jedi Knights," Kenobi explains. But the words are un-heeded by the young Jedi, and the conflict continues. Skywalker attacks Obi-Wan again, forcing him to discard his defensive posture. Kenobi parries the thrust and sends Ana- kin's lightsabre flying out of his hand. At precisely the same moment, a cataclysmic earthquake rocks the planet. The effect is devastating: fissures, in the earth crack open and spout walls June 6, 2002 FALL OF THE REPUBLIC Page 3 of flame; thunder and lightning strike violently from the sky; and several volcanos burst and bubble. The young Jedi struggles to regain his lightsabre, but loses his footing and plunges, still in possession of the Crys- tal, into a pit of molten lava. Kenobi hurries to the edge of the volcano and looks down; but he is too late to save his former friend: Skywalker is completely engulfed in lava! With tears in his eyes and anguish in his heart, Obi-Wan picks up Anakin's lightsabre and bids a sad farewell to the body of his friend. CUT TO: SCENE 2: Jhantor -- is "the bright center of the universe." Highly populated and technology-oriented, it is an old world of many contrasts: the huge, domed capital, with its elaborate space ports and transportation systems, stands adjacent to an ancient castle and temple. In another part of the galaxy, on the capital world of Jhantor, Palpatine enters his senate chambers - followed closely by a brash, young courtier named Prince Valarium - and assumes his place at the head of a conference table. Valarium stands next to him and whispers in his ear as Palpatine's wizened eyes travel around the table from man to man. Through a terse discussion with his cabinet members and personal guard, Palpatine reveals that he has bribed or black- mailed most of the High Council members into voting for him as President, but he is concerned with three senators who cannot be June 6, 2002 FALL OF THE REPUBLIC Page 4 swayed - Tara Courtney, Mon Mothma, and Bail Organa. He further explains that, once they have been eliminated, he intends to have his troops take over the Spice and Mineral Mines and blockade the commercial shipping lanes. Several of his personal guard nod their approval; how- ever, two young officers stand and voice their disagreement. Lieutenant Motti (bright, young and smartly-dressed) and Com- mander Tarkin (thin, hatchet-faced with dark eyes) report that Palpatine's military force (which he has genetically engineered on the prison planet) are en route to the Spice Mines and Star- ports AND that they are ready to take command of the Starfleet; but they fear the swift retribution of the Jedi Knights! "I think I know the best way to deal with that rabble," Palpatine announces, standing and walking over to his cabinet. "It's time that I demonstrate my absolute power--" Taking a large, crystal globe form his cabinet, Palpatine strokes it with his long, well-manicured fingers, then traces the longitude and latitude lines. The object begins to glow, and (with ILM's help) conjures a series of images from the planet Sigma Vulcanus. These images combine and crystallize on the SINGLE image of the dead Anakin Skywalker. LAP DISSOLVE TO: June 6, 2002 FALL OF THE REPUBLIC Page 5 SCENE 3: Sigma Vulcanus Four shadowy figures - adorned only in dark, hooded robes (which conceal their identity) - approach the charred, motionless body of Anakin Skywalker and lift him from his fiery grave. Skywalker's flesh is torn and scabbed, his hair is missing and clumped in disgusting patches. Deep scars trace his face, and his body and limbs are without life. They place him on the ground with great reverence and begin to administer to his injuries in an attempt to bring him back to life. One robed figure motions to the other: "Bring me the herbs and remedies." He actually says nothing but is instantly understood by the others. A third figure sprinkles the body with a powder, while a fourth looks toward the stars and begins to chant in a deep, rumbling voice. In a matter of moments, the lifeless body of Anakin Skywalker stirs, as we CUT TO: SCENE 4: Dagobah (introduced in Episode Five: Empire Strikes Bk) Far across the galaxy, on the bog world of Dagobah, Obi-Wan Kenobi walks through the dense fog and pauses, unhappy and dejected because he has been forced by circumstances to kill his friend. He turns to Yoda, his eight hundred year-old teacher and says: "I have failed, Master Yoda." June 6, 2002 FALL OF THE REPUBLIC Page 6 Yoda gives him a contemptuous stare, then closes his eyes: "No good is it to teach you when you have not yet learned patience! Humility!" Obi-Wan shakes his head and offers an excuse as his reply: "But Anakin was my friend. The Force was with him very strongly, and I thought that I could be as good a teacher as you were with me." He pauses and breathes a deep sigh: "I fear my mistake may have terrible consequences for the galaxy!" The Jedi Master points a crooked finger at him: "Most important lesson have you learned! Now a great burden you carry." Kenobi squeezes his tear-filled eyes shut and drops his head in defeat. But Yoda is immediately at his side to offer comfort and to reveal that Anakin is not dead. He further explains the incidents which have just taken place and foresees a deadly conflict. The Jedi Knight is pale and silent for a long moment. Then, slowly, he, too, recognizes the entire awesome threat that Palpatine has brought to the Old Republic. He thinks of the lives of his friends (Lady Padme Skywalker and Bail Organa) and realizes that he must leave immediately for Jhantor. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ so geht es noch lange weiter ist da was dran?
