The Star Wars saga comes to an end in style as Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) finally succumbs to the dark side, after a desperate attempt to protect his wife Padme (Natalie Portman) from the hands of death. His longtime friendship with Obi Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) ends with an incredible lightsaber fight on planet mustaphar, and we witness the birth of Darth Vader in one of the most iconic scenes ever made (possibly my favorite of the whole series). Long, sometimes a bit slow, but masterfully told by Georges Lucas, and delivers an emotional finale as the prequel trilogy reaches its conclusion. Yoda is terrific in every fight scene he appears in!
Fun fact: “The images of the volcanic eruption on Mustafar was real footage of Mt. Etna in Italy which was erupting at the time of production.”
