He works with that hair
There was some news yesterday of new Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith pics and stills. I checked them out and they sucked [a shot of Anakin]. Today, however, it seems that Starwars.Com has just released the boatload of pics for our viewing pleasure.

New Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith Pics and Stills

Check these out! They are pretty rad. The best one is the shot of General Grievous, who is already getting notoriety for his ability to frighten children. Man, I am hoping, HOPING, that this film does Star Wars some justice. I have seen every preview, documentary, and clip now that has anything to do with the upcoming Star Wars: Episode III. With these resources, and with this AWESOME REVIEW WITH SPOILERS, i am getting very hopeful. Lucas, if you blow this, I swear to God! If you have not seen the Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith trailer, you can VIEW IT HERE.

Enjoy the Stills!

General Grievous Pic

Fity percent cyborg, fity percent alien, one hundred percent angel.
This is right off my favorite new picture to be released. This guy looks badass, here is a part of the story behind General Grievous.

From within the ranks of the Confederacy came General Grievous, a brilliant strategist unhindered by compassion or scruples. His lightning strikes and effective campaigns caused his reputation to grow in the eyes of a frightened Republic. To many, he eclipsed the threat posed by Count Dooku, the charismatic leader of the Confederacy's political battlefields -- Grievous was the face of the enemy.

A twisted melding of flesh and metal, General Grievous' body is a deadly weapon forged by the cutting edge developers of the Confederacy. Within the hardened carapace beats the heart of a remorseless killer. Grievous hunted Jedi for sport and proudly displayed his victims' lightsabers around his belt as trophies of his conquests. His unorthodox fighting form and mechanical enhancements gave him an edge in close-quarters combat, and his strategic ingenuity and flawless cunning rendered him almost invincible against the Jedi.

You can't tell me that's not cool.

Obi-Wan Kanobi Pic

Ewan, looking more and more like Alec Guinness
According to the early review, link posted above, Ewan McGregor will finally have a chance to act in the final film in this Star Wars saga. According to the report, "there is more emotion in ten minutes of Star Wars: ROTS, then the whole two other films combined." Here is the introduction to Obi-Wan [who will hopefully become just as bad ass as Mace Windu, Jackson].

As a General in the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi served the Senate and the Republic heroically, on numerous historic battlefronts. Despite his misgivings, he became a seasoned starfighter pilot, learning several tricks from his unorthodox Padawan as the duo blazed a trail of victory through Separatists lines.

The exploits of Skywalker and Kenobi became legendary throughout the Republic. While Anakin was elevated as the "Hero Without Fear" for his daring heroics, Obi-Wan's more measured tactics earned him the reputation as "the Negotiator." Many times Kenobi was able to cease hostilities without the raising of a single blaster. When diplomacy failed and it did come to violence, the General was ready. Kenobi had the control of a complete army of clone troopers and the latest military hardware. His most trusted clone soldier, Commander 2224 -- also known as Cody [looks exactly like Jango Fett]-- served him well during close calls on Cato Neimoidia and elsewhere.

During the Clone Wars, Kenobi ascended to the rank of Jedi Master, and he occupied a position in the Jedi Council. He was able to contribute to the highest levels of Jedi strategy, and such a vaunted position allowed him to witness the strain between the Jedi order and the Office of the Chancellor firsthand.

Darth Vader [Anakin Skywalker] Pic

Vader! Good to see you again!
Another 'first' look at Darth Vader, who will definitely appear in Revenge of the Sith. Vader's voice sounds a little different, as it is young Vader, but similar enough where many viewers will not even notice this minor detail. Now, we have all seen what Vader looks like, so I found the story to Vader [which most know] more interesting.

Skywalker was seduced by the dark side of the Force. Fueled by rage and discontent with the pace of Obi-Wan's training, Anakin challenged his master to a duel. Despite newfound power bestowed by the dark side of the Force, which added to his already formidable abilities, Anakin was grievously wounded in the fight. His burning anger kept him alive, and he was forever scarred not only by his wounds but also by betrayal. He abandoned his former identity. When metal coupled with flesh in the form of cyborg implants and enhancements required to sustain him, Skywalker's transformation was complete. He was no longer Anakin. He was Darth Vader.

At the time of his transformation, Vader never knew he was due to be the father of twins. Obi-Wan Kenobi hid the children from the Dark Lord and Vader's master, Emperor Palpatine. Vader somehow discovered that he had a son, Luke Skywalker, but never suspected he had a daughter, Leia, who was secretly taken to be raised by Bail Organa, Viceroy and First Chairman of Alderaan.

In the chaos that accompanied Palpatine's rise to power, Vader became one of the Emperor's most loyal servants. The Emperor entrusted him with the elimination of the Jedi Knights. During these dark times, Vader and his agents destroyed the Jedi order.

Bail Organa Pic

This is the adopted father of Leia Organa, AKA Leia Skywalker.
I did not catch this character while watching any of the previous Star Wars episodes. I did notice him, but did not know who he was. Now, it seems that this character has some pull after all. The man that takes Leia away and adopts her... interesting.

During the Clone Wars, Organa befriended General Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the revered Jedi Knight served him well in that terrible conflict. When Kenobi's apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, succumbed to the dark side, Organa hid one of Skywalker's twin offspring in the high court of Alderaan. Bail and his wife had been looking to adopt a child, and he came to raise and love young Leia Organa as his own child.

Leia followed in Bail's political footsteps, becoming the youngest member of the Imperial Senate. Leia also decided to support the Alliance, using her diplomatic immunity to smuggle supplies and information to Rebels. Together, the Organas uncovered crucial technical information about the Empire's greatest weapon, the Death Star.
