Star Wars

It comes out on Tuesday, baby!! Tuesday!!

It’s everything you ever wanted to know about “Sith” but were afraid to ask.
Here’s a peek at two scenes added to the DVD of the sixth and final chapter of the “Star Wars” series, in stores next week. The two-disc “Revenge of the Sith” set, available in full-screen or widescreen, features a handful of deleted scenes, making-of featurettes, game demos, photo galleries and even a preview of “Hyperspace, the ultimate online Star Wars experience.”
Though director George Lucas has said much of his deleted material focuses on the Senate, at least one scene features some good, old-fashioned lightsaber fighting.
In “General Grievous Slaughters a Jedi,” which adds to a rescue sequence early in the film, Anakin (Hayden Christensen) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) battle a throng of droids – led by cyborg General Grievous himself – and then cut through the floor to escape.
The scene also connects to the animated “Clone Wars” series, as Grievous kills a Jedi prisoner he took in the Cartoon Network prequel.
In another deleted scene, Chancellor Palpatine plants further tension between Queen Amidala (Natalie Portman) and Anakin.
Also included is the lone scene featuring actress Bai Ling, who ended up on the cutting-room floor – reportedly because she posed topless in Playboy before the film’s release.
In “The Seeds of Rebellion,” Ling plays a senator working with Amidala to thwart the plans of the chancellor. Her one line? “That would be dangerous.”
(Too bad someone didn’t tell her that before the Playboy shoot.)
