How It StartsEdit

"It's as if thousands of voices cried out for a sequel and were suddenly silenced." - Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan Kenobi goes to Naboo to get Anakin to accompany him on a Jedi mission. Padme Amidala will not let Anakin go unless he gets direct permission from the Jedi Order. Meanwhile, the Emperor, is building the Death Star and sends his Sith apprentice to find Anakin. Obi-Wan and Anakin leave from the Jedi Counsil before they reach a desision and head to the new Death Star.

Resurected SithEdit

"Nothing a little stiching wouldn't fix." - Palpatine

Upon arriving on the Death Star, Anakin goes after Palpatine and Obi-Wan battles the Death Star troops. When Anakin gets to the Emperor's control room he challenges him. Palpatine then calls for his sith apprentice into the room...Darth Maul. Anakin and Darth Maul fight for hours and hours until they both drop from fatigue. In the end Anakin helps Darth Maul up off the ground and the fighting stops... but Palpatine sees this as a great place to break into song. Palpatine sings "It's not how you start but how you finish." an original song by Mark Scales.

Differences Between TENCLO and TESBYEdit

  • Emperor Palpatine acts more serious in this film than TENCLO.
  • Padme is more nagging and bossy in TENCLO
  • Anakin's hair is bright blonde in this but dark brown in TENCLO
  • Palpatine has a green mouth in TESBY but not in TENCLO
