George Lucas Reveals Secrets Of ‘The Sith’

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – When Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge Of The Sith hits theaters next month, viewers will not only see George Lucas’ vision, they’ll also see the director himself.

According to Premiere magazine, Lucas makes his first ever onscreen cameo appearance in the movie, playing a character named “Baron Papanoida.”

But you may not recognize him. Insiders say the Baron has a “decidedly extraterrestrial skin tone.” In addition, Lucas’ three kids appear in the film.

The film also features a seven-minute sequence where Yoda visits Kashyyk, the home planet of Chewbacca the Wookiee and a 20-minute battle between Anakin Skywalker and his former mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge Of The Sith will be released May 19 but it may not be the final word for Lucas.

He tells Premiere that he plans to continue producing the Clone Wars animated series and may do a live-action series featuring some of the minor Star Wars characters.
