During a space battle ower Coruscant atween the Galactic Republic an the Separatist Alliance, Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi an Anakin Skywalker lead a mission tae rescue the kidnapped Supreme Chancellor Palpatine frae Separatist leaders Coont Dooku an General Grievous. Efter infiltratin Grievous' flagship, the Jedi engage Dooku in a lichtsaber duel, which ends wi Anakin killin Dooku at Palpatine's urgin. Grievous flees the battle-torn cruiser, which the Jedi crash-land on Coruscant. Thare, Anakin reunites wi his wife, Padmé Amidala, who reveals she is pregnant. Initially excitit, Anakin begins tae have premonrrtions o Padmé dyin in childbirth.

Palpatine appynts Anakin tae join the Jedi Cooncil as his representative, but the Cooncil declines Anakin the rank o Jedi Master an orders him tae monitor the Chancellor, diminishin Anakin's faith in the Jedi. Palpatine entices Anakin wi knawledge o the dark side o the Force, includin the pouer tae prevent daith. Eventually Palpatine reveals himsel tae be the Sith Lord Darth Sidious. Obi-Wan manages tae find Grievous' hidin location on Utapau, efter a lang duel Obi-Wan manages tae destroy Grievous wi a blaster. Anakin reports Palpatine's treachery tae Mace Windu, who subdues Palpatine in an ensuing lichtsaber duel. In a desperate attempt tae help save Padmé, Anakin intervenes on Palpatine's behalf, allaein him tae kill Mace. Anakin pledges himsel tae Palpatine, who dubs him Darth Vader.

Palpatine issues an order for the clone truipers tae kill thair Jedi commanders, an dispatches Vader an a legion o clones tae kill everyone in the Jedi Temple; Obi-Wan an Yoda survive the attempts on thair lives, but mony ither Jedi are gunned doun across the galaxy. Vader then kills Trade Federation Viceroy Nute Gunray an the ither remainin Separatist leaders hidin on the volcanic planet Mustafar, while Palpatine addresses the Senate an reforms the Republic as the Galactic Empire, declarin himsel Emperor. On Coruscant, Obi-Wan an Yoda return tae the battle-damaged Jedi Temple tae discover Anakin's treachery. Concerned bi Obi-Wan's reasonin that Anakin haes turned tae the dark side, Padmé travels tae Mustafar tae confront him, while Obi-Wan stows abuird her ship. When Vader discovers Obi-Wan, he accuses Padmé o betrayal an uises the Force tae choke her intae unconsciousness. Obi-Wan battles an dismembers Vader, who is signeeficantly burned bi a volcanic river. Back on Coruscant, Yoda confronts Palpatine, but retreats efter their duel reaches a stalemate.

Obi-Wan brings Padmé tae the asteroid Polis Massa, whaur she gies birth tae twins Luke an Leia afore dyin. A funeral is held for Padmé, whose body is dressed tae continue the illusion o pregnancy. Meanwhile, Palpatine salvages Vader an brings him back tae Coruscant, whaur his ruined body is repaired wi cybernetic limbs an his iconic respiratory suit. Palpatine informs Vader o Padmé's daith, devastatin him. As the Sith supervise the construction o the Daith Starn, Obi-Wan an Yoda determine tae hide the twins frae the Empire.
