"A lot of my life has been wrapped up in this one thing. I can walk away from this now 'cause I feel it's the best I could do ... this is the film that people want to see," says Star Wars: Episode III-Revenge of the Sith Director George Lucas of his latest film, which is expected to be the highest-grossing and most anticipated film of the summer 2005 season.

Premiere's May issue, on salein the USA today, takes a look into the end of the Star Wars story, which concludes a saga that began nearly 30 years ago.

It also talks with the cast including cover boy Hayden Christensen about the challenges he's faced since taking the role of everyone's favorite villain are featured in this blowout issue.
