"Lucas calls new 'Star Wars' titanic tearjerker..."

LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - Director George Lucas had a message for fans as he previewed a glimpse of the final tale in the billion-dollar "Star Wars" film franchise: leave the lightsabers at home, but don't forget the tissues.

"It's not like the first one. It's more emotional," said the director of the upcoming space adventure "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith," which arrives in theaters May 19.

"I describe it as a 'Titanic' in space. It's a real tearjerker, and it will be received in a way that none of us can expect," he told theater owners at the ShoWest convention.

Let me guess... well of course Natalie Portman's Queen Formaldehyde dies, but how?
  • Accidentally or mistakenly killed by Jedi, infuriating husband Anakin "Darth" Skywalker?
  • Killed by husband, Anakin "Darth" Skywalker, to prove to newfound darkside friends his "Darthy-ness"?
  • Or, my guess, Queen Formaldehyde gives her own life - jumps infront of Darth's lightsaber so infant Luke and Leya can live to fight another day.
All I know is Han Solo (in actuality, the character that made the franchise) had better get a mention.

As cool as the trailer looked, 'Menace' and that other one just left me cold. They'll have trouble jerking tears out of me. I've spent two movies not giving a shit, so the third has its work cut out for it.

Meanwhile, can we get Natalie Portman topless in something, please?
