Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith shows Chancellor Palpatine’s growing boldness in asserting his power and position, both in the Republic and as a Sith Lord. He allows himself to be kidnapped by General Grievous, who is unaware of his true identity. Anakin and Obi-Wan are sent to rescue him.
Count Dooku pretends to hold the Chancellor hostage, knowing that Palpatine is his Sith master. He fights Anakin and Obi-Wan, knocking the older Jedi Knight unconscious. He then encourages Anakin to give in to the Dark Side of the Force. Much to Dooku’s surprise, Palpatine manipulates Anakin into giving in to his rage. After Dooku is rendered harmless after the loss of his hands, Anakin cuts off his head when Darth Sidious drives him on.
Palpatine begins openly courting Anakin to the Dark Side. Anakin initially resists and turns to the Jedi Council. Mace Windu goes to confront Palpatine. Anakin walks in near the end of the battle when Palpatine appears to be suffering and dying. Darth Sidious begs for help, taunting Anakin that only he knows how to save Amidala, and Anakin tries to talk Mace Windu down. When that fails, Anakin strikes out at Windu who is instantly killed by the Sith Lord.
Anakin, responsible for the death of Windu, is finally broken and agrees to turn to the Dark Side as Palpatine’s apprentice in exchange for a promise to save his beloved wife. Fully turned, his first order is to go to the Jedi Academy and slay all the young candidates in training. Upon the discovery of Anakin’s transformation into Darth Vader, Obi-Wan is sent after him.
Queen Amidala refuses to believe that Anakin has turned to the Dark Side and insists on seeing him. During their meeting, she sees for herself that he is consumed by dark emotions and hatred. When Obi-Wan exits the ship, Anakin believes his wife has betrayed him and chokes her unconscious in a rage. Obi-Wan attempts to get through to Anakin, but the Dark Side has taken full root. He leaves Anakin badly wounded and missing limbs.
Queen Amidala dies during childbirth, having no will to live after seeing her beloved consumed by evil. Darth Vader is fitted with cybernetic limbs and a life support suit. After being told that his wife is dead, all that was once human of Vader dies and he becomes the cruel icon of the new Galactic Empire.
