Somehow Palpatine died. 15 years later, Chancellor Padme Amidala leads the galaxy towards a
new era of peace and unity. Her husband, Anakin Skywalker, now a government minister
overseeing Jedi and military affairs, assists her in this endeavor.
But the Jedi Order, once a beacon of hope, has been scattered and diminished. Shadows of its
former glory linger in the hearts of those who remember its teachings.
In the midst of this fragile stability, an old threat resurfaces. Moff Tarkin, a cunning and ruthless
figure, has orchestrated the kidnapping of Luke and Leia Skywalker, the children of Padme and
Anakin, fueled by both love and duty, sets out to rescue his children. His search leads him to the
forest moon of Endor, where the remnants of an incomplete Imperial space station serve as
As the galaxy teeters on the brink of turmoil once again, the fate of the Skywalker family
becomes intertwined with the destiny of the galaxy itself. In this time of uncertainty, the legacy of
hope lives on……….
The incomplete Death Star casts a foreboding shadow over the dense forest moon. Its colossal
structure looms with a sense of imminent danger.
The camera pans across the towering Death Star, capturing its ominous presence against the
backdrop of the forest moon. The unfinished superstructure glistens with a metallic sheen,
hinting at the Empire's unchecked ambitions.
As the camera focuses on the distant horizon, Star Destroyers begin to materialize one after
another. Each ship is a behemoth, their jagged silhouettes commanding attention as they take
their place in the sky.
The forest below trembles, trees swaying under the immense power of the Imperial fleet. The
sound of engines reverberates through the air, a symphony of dominance and authority.
INSERT SHOT: The Death Star's superlaser dish, incomplete and vulnerable, reflects the harsh
sunlight, its unfinished framework standing as a stark reminder of the Empire's unchecked
INT. STAR DESTROYER - DECK - DAY
Anakin Skywalker, cloaked in black, stands on the deck of a Star Destroyer. Padme Amidala
stands behind him, a look of concern etched on her face.
Ani, I have a bad feeling about this.
Trust me, Chancellor. Just keep him talking.
Anakin heads toward a torpedo bay, where Obi-Wan Kenobi awaits him.
INT. TORPEDO BAY - DAY
Anakin approaches Obi-Wan, who wears a skeptical expression.
(raising an eyebrow)
You aren't doing what I think you're doing, are you?
It's fine, Obi-Wan. We have a plan.
Anakin, this is dangerous. You know this isn’t going to work..
Of course it’s going to work, the clones and I used to do stuff like this all the time. I haven't lost
Obi-Wan studies Anakin, his worry evident.
That was 15 years ago. You aren't a kid anymore, Anakin. The stakes are higher now.
Ah, but Obi-Wan, I'm still able-bodied.
Anakin reaches for a black helmet, pulling it towards him. It's the iconic Vader helmet, a symbol
of his former identity.
Ugh, I hate this thing. But it's necessary for the plan.
It’s not a great look.
Anakin playfully adjusts the Vader-like helmet, his playful nature shining through.
You don’t think It makes me (Anakin puts on the helmet and his voice turns into VADER’s)
SEEM MORE SERIOUS?
Obi-Wan smiles, appreciating Anakin's light-hearted approach.
You sound preposterous.
Well, it seems you're still finding ways to keep things interesting, Anakin even when it’s your
OBI WAN YOU TAKE THINGS FAR TOO SERIOUSLY, YOU’LL WORRY YOURSELF TO
It won’t work.
IT IS GOING TO WORK.
EXT. SPACE - DEATH STAR - DAY
Anakin Skywalker, dressed in his Vader-like space suit, is loaded into a torpedo tube on the Star
Destroyer's deck. He gives a thumbs up to obi wan and the troopers. The tube closes, sealing
him inside. The scene abruptly shifts, transitioning to Anakin's perspective. The sound design
captures the moment with precision. A WHIRR of magnets and compression fills the audio,
emphasizing the intense speed and momentum. The camera follows Anakin's trajectory as he
hurtles through the starry expanse, the only sound his breathing. The scene shifts, and we now
see Padme Amidala, engaged in intense negotiations, buying time for Anakin's daring mission.
INT. PADME'S CHAMBER - DAY
Padme, poised and determined, addresses a group of diplomats. She carefully chooses her
words, weaving a web of diplomacy to stall for time.
It’s not that I can’t hear you. I definately can Tarken, it’s that I can’t make it out, (she turns to the
right.) You checked that? You did? Ok….. I see, Tarken, they’re saying it is on your side.
(His head in his hands)
I have a bad feeling about this.
(Exasperated, addressed off camera)
What dead man is fiddling with my subspace settings?
EXT. SPACE - DEATH STAR SURFACE - DAY
Anakin's descent through space is filled with anticipation and gravity. As he nears the surface of
the Death Star, his breathing continues to be the only audible sound.
Anakin lands gracefully on the Death Star's surface, his boots making a faint thud upon impact.
He stands, a solitary figure surrounded by the immense structure of the Death Star. Even
incomplete it’s immense size looms over Anakin.
INT. DEATH STAR - CORRIDOR - DAY
Anakin Skywalker ignites his blue lightsaber, its blade humming to life. With a swift swing, he
cuts through the floor, creating an opening. He leaps down into the darkened corridors below,
his presence masked by shadows.
INT. DEATH STAR - CORRIDORS - CONTINUOUS
Anakin moves silently, his every step calculated and purposeful. The emergency lighting is the
only light. The red emergency lighting casts an eerie glow as he navigates the labyrinthine
passageways. He moves swiftly and silently, avoiding the troopers he sees, distracting others,
he turns a corner, Anakin stumbles upon MOFF TARKIN’s communication room. He is the
mastermind behind the capture of Luke and Leia. Tarkin's voice echoes through the
communications room, frustration evident.
No, your highness, they are saying our settings are correct!
Anakin steps forward, his deep voice resonating with a touch of James Earl Jones' commanding
(calmly in VADER VOICE)
I AM AFRAID THAT ALL OF YOUR COMMS ARE ABOUT TO BE CUT. THE FIRST ONE TO
TELL ME WHERE MY CHILDREN ARE GETS TO LIVE.
(ANAKIN removes his helmet. His voice returns to normal.) I really hate that thing.
Tarkin's expression twists into a mix of surprise and anger. He gestures to the Imperial soldiers
stationed in the room.
Seize him! Open fire!
The Imperials respond, unleashing a barrage of blaster bolts toward Anakin. With swift, elegant
movements, he deflects the incoming fire, his lightsaber a blur of blue. He does a flip kick,
avoiding blaster fire and severs the power chord. The room is bathed in darkness. The only
lights now are the red of the emergency lights and the blue of ANAKIN’s lightsaber.
Anakin advances relentlessly, his skills honed to perfection. He dispatches the Imperial soldiers
with terrifying efficiency, each swing of his lightsaber leaving only a trail of defeated foes. He
follows their blaster bolts back to the source and chops them into pieces with a furious rage. He
moves swiftly cutting a swath through the soldiers. The blaster bolts begin numerously but at the
end there is only one trooper left. He doesn’t fire, and slowly stalks into a corner. ANAKIN’s blue
lightsaber suddenly sprouts forth from his chest, he topples to the ground.
Moff Tarkin, overwhelmed with fear, falls to his knees, begging for mercy as Anakin's lightsaber
hovers inches away from him. The room falls into an eerie silence, broken only by Tarkin's
Please, spare me! I beg you!
Anakin, his voice tinged with the weight of his dark alter ego, delivers a final verdict.
Your actions have consequences, Moff Tarkin.
With a swift, decisive motion, Anakin's lightsaber cuts through the air, ending Tarkin's life.
As Anakin's gaze sweeps the room for further threats., he notices Luke and Leia, their young
faces filled with a mix of terror and disbelief. The truth of their father's nature, the darkness that
he feels, is laid bare before them.
Anakin's heart sinks, realizing the impact his actions have had on his children. He approaches
them slowly, his voice filled with remorse.
Luke, Leia... I never wanted you to see this side of me. I wanted to protect you.
Luke and Leia, shaken and speechless, can only stare at their father, grappling with the
magnitude of the moment.
But know this, my children. The darkness that consumed me once... I'm fighting to leave it
behind. I will do everything in my power to make amends and protect you both. I know you’re
afraid, but you’re safe.
INT. PADME'S RESIDENCE - LIVING AREA - DAY
Padme Amidala ANAKIN SKYWALKER and Obi-Wan Kenobi find themselves engaged in a
heated discussion. The room crackles with tension as they debate the future of Luke and Leia.
Padme, we can't ignore the truth any longer. Luke and Leia will never be truly safe until they
learn to master the Force.
But Obi-Wan, they are just children. They deserve a chance at a normal life, away from the
dangers of the Jedi and Sith.
Obi-Wan paces, his concern evident in his furrowed brow.
I understand your worries, Padme. But the Force runs strong in your family. It is their birthright,
and they must be prepared for the challenges that lie ahead.
Can't we shield them from that? Keep them hidden and protected?
Obi-Wan stops and looks Padme in the eyes, his voice filled with conviction.
No amount of hiding will keep them safe forever. The Force connects all living beings, and its
presence cannot be denied. They must be trained, guided, so they can use their gifts for good.
Obi Wan is right, they have to be trained.It is the only way.
Anakin, you can train them. I give you my permission.
Padme, Obi-Wan... I need to speak with you both. Something happened on Endor, something
that shook me to my core.
Padme and Obi-Wan exchange concerned glances, sensing the gravity of Anakin's words.
Anakin, what happened? You seem... different.
(voice filled with regret)
I felt it, Obi-Wan. I felt myself losing control, giving in to the darkness within. I can't allow that to
happen again. I can't risk putting anyone I care about in danger.
Padme reaches out, her hand gently touching Anakin's arm.
Anakin, you've come so far. You've redeemed yourself. You mustn't let this setback define you.
Padme, I've caused so much pain and destruction. I've hurt those closest to me. I need to
remove myself from the Force, sever my connection to it completely. It's the only way to protect
everyone from the darkness that still lingers within me.
Obi-Wan's eyes widen, realizing the weight of Anakin's decision.
Anakin, severing your connection to the Force is an extreme step. It will leave you vulnerable
and cut you off from the guidance and strength it offers.
I know the risks, Obi-Wan. But I can't afford to let the dark side consume me again. I must find a
way to protect my family and ensure their safety.
Padme holds Anakin's face in her hands, her eyes filled with love and concern.
Anakin, if you cut yourself off from the force, how will you train them.
(The camera cuts ocer to ANAKIN who is silent.)
YOU are going to train them right?
Actually I’d given it some though. Obi-Wan, I think it’s been long enough since you had an
Obviously my training left much to be desired. Obvoously I will so my beat to train and protect
them, Padme. But we must also trust in their resilience and potential. The Force will guide them,
and we will be there to support them every step of the way.
Padme takes a deep breath, accepting the challenge that lies ahead.
Very well, Obi-Wan. ensure they receive the training they need, while still allowing them the
freedom to choose their own paths.
Two apprentices is a lot to take on.
Actually i thought I’d send luke to Snips.
Ahsoka? Of course. I’m sure she’ll do a great job with Leia.
(He looks at Anakin’s frozen expression.)
You’re giving her the boy?
(Making an entrance) I’m the newest Jedi so i said I get first pick.
INT. PADME'S RESIDENCE - LEIA'S ROOM - DAY
Leia, deep in thought, sits on her bed. Padme quietly enters the room, concern etched on her
face. She approaches Leia with a gentle smile.
Leia, may I join you for a moment?
Leia looks up, her eyes reflecting a mix of emotions.
Of course, Mother.
They sit side by side, a bond of love and understanding between them.
Leia, I sense something troubling you. Is there something you'd like to share?
Leia takes a deep breath, gathering her thoughts.
Mother, I've been thinking. I don't want to become a Jedi. I don't want to leave everything behind
and embrace a life filled with battles and uncertainties. I want to stay here, with you.
Padme listens attentively, her gaze filled with acceptance and love.
Leia, your choice is yours to make. I will support you no matter what path you choose. Your
happiness and safety are what matter most to me.
Leia's eyes well up with tears, a mixture of relief and gratitude.
Thank you, Mother. Your understanding means the world to me.
They embrace, their bond strengthened by the freedom to choose their own destinies.
INT. PADME'S RESIDENCE - LUKE'S ROOM - DAY
Luke stands by the window, gazing out at the distant stars. Anakin enters the room, sensing the
weight of his son's contemplation.
Luke, may I join you?
Luke turns to face his father, his expression a blend of determination and vulnerability.
Of course, Father.
They stand together, sharing a moment of connection.
What troubles you, my son?
Luke takes a deep breath, gathering his thoughts before speaking.
Father, the Force... it will show you things. Sometimes wonderful, sometimes terrible things. It's
a power that requires great responsibility and discernment.
Anakin's eyes meet Luke's, understanding passing between them.
Luke, you speak the truth. The Force is a powerful ally, but it can also be a source of great
temptation and darkness. It is a path we must tread with caution.
Luke nods, a weight lifted off his shoulders knowing his father understands.
I will learn from your experiences, Father. I will be vigilant and strive to use the Force for good,
to protect and preserve life.
Anakin places a hand on Luke's shoulder, a mix of pride and guidance in his touch.
I have faith in you, Luke. Your journey with the Force will shape you, but always remember to
trust in your own instincts and the light within you.
INT. PADME AND ANAKIN'S RESIDENCE - LIVING AREA - DAY

Luke, Leia, we have something important to discuss with you.
Your mother and I believe it's time for you both to embark on a new journey. A journey that will
shape your destinies.
Luke and Leia exchange intrigued glances, their curiosity piqued. Anakin and Padme gesture for
them to join hands, forming a united front.
From this moment forward, you shall be known as our "apprentices." Your training will guide you
on the path of the Force and prepare you for the challenges that lie ahead.
Apprentices? Like Jedi?
Yes, Luke. You and Leia will follow in the footsteps of the Jedi, but with the guidance of those
who have fought alongside us.
Padme gestures towards a figure standing nearby, emanating wisdom and strength.
Luke, I would like you to meet Ahsoka Tano. She will be your mentor, guiding you in the ways of
the Force and honing your skills as a Jedi.
Ahsoka steps forward, her expression warm and welcoming, extending a hand towards Luke.
Luke, it's an honor to meet you. I've heard incredible things about your journey so far. Together,
we will uncover the depths of your potential.
Luke, a mixture of excitement and nervousness, takes Ahsoka's hand, a newfound connection
forming between them.
(turning to Leia)
Leia, your mentor will be someone familiar to you. Obi-Wan Kenobi, my former master, will
guide you through your training and provide invaluable wisdom.
Leia looks towards Obi-Wan, a sense of reverence and determination in her gaze.
Master Kenobi, I am ready to learn and serve the galaxy. I want to make a difference, just like
Leia, the Force flows through our family. I am honored to guide you and help you shape the
