Classic Scene: Revenge Of The Sith (2005)

“The Dark Side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be.. unnatural.”

SETTING THE SCENE : Supreme Chancellor Palpatine (creepily played by Ian McDiarmid) slowly begins to turn Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) into the most powerful of all Sith Lords – Darth Vader. Some of the strongest dialogue George Lucas wrote for his epic six part Star Wars saga is in this one particular scene…

Supreme Chancellor: Remember back to your early teachings. “All who gain power are afraid to lose it.” Even the Jedi.

Anakin Skywalker: The Jedi use their power for good.

Supreme Chancellor: Good is a point of view, Anakin. The Sith and the Jedi are similar in almost every way, including their quest for greater power.

Anakin Skywalker
: The Sith rely on their passion for their strength. They think inward, only about themselves.

Supreme Chancellor: And the Jedi don’t ?

Anakin Skywalker: The Jedi are selfless… they only care about others.

Supreme Chancellor: (Frustrated) Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis “the wise” ?

Supreme Chancellor: I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith who lived many years ago. He was so powerful and so wise that he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.

Anakin Skywalker
: He could do that ? He could actually save people from death ?

Supreme Chancellor
: The Dark Side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be.. unnatural.

Anakin Skywalker: What happened to him ?

Supreme Chancellor
: He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, and then one night, his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It’s ironic that he could save others from death, but not himself.

Anakin Skywalker: Is it possible to learn this power ?

Supreme Chancellor: (Confidently) Not from a Jedi.
