Well, it's here. After seemingly weeks of build-up, the teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith is now online - and it is good. We've just seen it and there's a lot to take in, but if you've been following internet descriptions of the teaser, they're pretty much on the money. We have a long intro culled from Episode IV, with Alec Guiness' Obi-Wan Kenobi's famous speech about 'a young Jedi named Darth Vader' intercut with footage from Episodes I and II... and then we're off with a shot of Hayden Christenen's Anakin Skywalker looking decidedly evil, with a hooded cloak and a Darth Maul-esque red eye. Other images in the very brief trailer include shots of Yoda with a lightsaber again, a boatload of wookiees, and brief glimpses of Mustafa, the lava planet upon which Anakin makes his fatal turn, after his duel with Obi-Wan. And we get a tantalising glimpse of that, too, with genuine fury on Anakin's face, a brief shot in which Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan appears to be on the wrong end of a lightsaber stab, and one excellent shot of the duo matching lightsabers
