From the bits

In other DVD news today, Sony Music has announced that the soundtrack CD for Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith will street on 5/3. So why is this DVD news? Well, as it turns out, the CD will include a bonus DVD-Video disc that will feature a 70-minute presentation of some 16 newly-created music videos of composer John Williams' signature themes from all 6 Star Wars films (set to footage from the films) that takes viewers chronologically through the entire saga. Each will be introduced by actor Ian McDiarmid (Senator Palpatine) and will feature the music along with dialogue and sound effects excerpts in full Dolby Digital 5.1 surround. The package will also include a booklet with liner notes by George Lucas and a poster. Frankly, I'm as excited to hear this music as I am to see the film.

footage from Episode 3...

Hope this comes in a keep case and not a jewel case.

NEW YORK, March 15 /PRNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, May 3, 2005, Sony Classical will release the original motion picture soundtrack of the last episode of the massively popular Star Wars saga, Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.
It features a new score by five-time Oscar winner John Williams, who is also the composer and conductor of the score for each film in the six-chapter Star Wars saga, and an exclusive collector's DVD -- Star Wars: A Musical Journey -- an unprecedented bonus at no additional cost.

Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, written and directed by George Lucas, is the most anticipated movie of the year and opens worldwide on Thursday, May 19, 2005.

Created especially to accompany the CD release, the thrilling 70-minute DVD features 16 brand-new music videos set to selections from all six of John Williams' unforgettable Star Wars film scores and has been designed around a timeline that will take the viewer chronologically through the entire saga.
Each movement is introduced by actor Ian McDiarmid (who plays Senator Palpatine in the films) and features a spectacular montage of images, complete with excerpts of the original dialogue and sound effects, set to Williams' legendary music which has been newly remixed and remastered in 5.1 surround sound. Williams' principal theme from the new score, entitled "Battle of the Heroes," will be featured in a music video created by Lucasfilm.

The soundtrack packaging will also include liner notes from George Lucas plus an exclusive fold-out poster featuring a montage of images from the film.

In Revenge of the Sith, the final and most dramatic chapter of the Star Wars saga, the Clone Wars rage as the rift widens between Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) and the Jedi Council. Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen), the young Jedi Knight with an allegiance to Chancellor Palpatine, struggles to keep his marriage to Padme' Amidala (Natalie Portman) a secret amid the turmoil. Seduced by promises of power and temptations of the dark side, he pledges himself to the evil Darth Sidious and becomes Darth Vader. Together, Sidious and Vader set in motion a plot of revenge against the Jedi, leading to a climatic lightsaber battle between Vader and his former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), that will decide the fate of the galaxy.

With 43 Oscar nominations to his credit, Williams has composed a new score for the film, utilizing the themes and musical motives that link it with his earlier scores for the Star Wars films. The London Symphony Orchestra (L.S.O), with the composer conducting, performs the original score. The L.S.O. is the same orchestra that recorded Williams' original Star Wars score 28 years ago and has continued to perform the score for each successive chapter of the saga.

In 1999, Sony Classical released the Grammy-nominated original soundtrack recording of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace(TM), which was a platinum-selling album in the U.S. and sold more than two million copies worldwide, in addition to a specially packaged Ultimate Edition that featured Williams' entire score for that film. In 2002, the label released the original soundtrack recording of Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones(TM). Both are currently available.

In September 2004, Sony Classical became the home of all the Star Wars soundtracks with the release of newly remastered editions of the soundtrack recordings of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope(TM), Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back(TM) and Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi(TM). The recordings are available individually and in a special boxed set with a deluxe slipcover case.

The Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith soundtrack also continues Sony Classical's long association with John Williams, who has recorded a number of non-film projects for the label. Williams won the third of his five Academy Awards for his score for the original Star Wars (1977) and received nominations for his scores for The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983). The soundtrack albums for Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back also won Grammy(R) Awards for Williams in 1977 and 1980, and he was a nominee for Return of the Jedi in 1983 and Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace in 2000.

You may want to spoilerize the track listing, as it gives some of the events of the movie away.

Cameron 03-17-05 07:52 AM

digitalfreaknyc 03-17-05 08:20 AM

The track listing is FAKE.

rexinnih 03-17-05 08:22 AM

Saw this announced and immediately added it to my want list. Let the countdown begin!

Disc-Flipper 03-17-05 10:52 AM


complete with excerpts of the original dialogue and sound effects
Noooooo! I was hoping for the music alone, not throwaway one-liners, beeps, mechanical breathing, okey-days, yub-yubs, wookie growls, bo-shudas, laser blasts and explosions. Well, Meco did it and fans loved it.

Great news about the music videos though.

WOW! Same here! One of the things I love about the series is the great John Williams score. I own all of the Soundtracks and pop them in while cleaning and such. This will be even better! Great news!

The track listing is FAKE.
[sarcasm]So is that title... I mean, REVENGE OF THE SITH... Give me a BREAK! There is no way that's the title of the film despite the fact that there have been 2 trailers, a poster, shirts, mugs, toys, commercials, books, etc. that confirm the title, I'LL NEVER BELIEVE IT![/sarcasm]

:rolleyes

They forgot to include the hidden track:

23. Anakin goes apeshit

It's amazing that no SW soundtrack is on SACD, yet. Probably never will be since they are idiots. They'd sell like hotcakes to us SW OT freaks that finally have cash to double-dip all this crap. Again.

Eplicon 03-17-05 12:57 PM

I wonder if the DVD will be anamorphic??? PLEASE do this right and make it anamorphic!

digitalfreaknyc 03-17-05 02:21 PM

I'm more excited over the DVD than I am the soundtrack :)

Just praying they don't kill the score for the CD like they have the last 2 movies.

Now, now...while I agree that Lucas BUTCHERED the score for Attack Of the Clones [glad to see i'm not the only one that thought this, btw..when I told my girlfriend, she looked at me as if I was crazy and no one else cared :(], the score for the Phantom Menace wasn't that bad. "Duel Of the Fates" still, IMHO, kicks ass.

I agree that the DVD should kick much ass. Glad to see that they put "the Asteriod Field" on there. That's one of my favorite Williams Star Wars compositions.

Double Dipping is the key. Lucas will do the SACD adn DVD as soon as he is certain we have all bought the current version. He basically did the same thing with the DVDs. We might as well call them Star Wars 1.0, Star Wars 2.0, Star Wars 3.0.
