In addition to the “Breathing” (05 Nov) and “Mystery” (09 Nov) movie trailers, LucasFilm has posted a new Star Wars: Episode II trailer today, “Forbidden Love,” that will also appear on the opening trailers for “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” which opens in theatres nationwide today.


In addition to the “Breathing” (05 Nov) and “Mystery” (09 Nov) movie trailers, LucasFilm has posted a new Star Wars: Episode II trailer today, “Forbidden Love,” that will also appear on the opening trailers for “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” which opens in theatres nationwide today.

According to today’s issue of the Homing Beacon, the Star Wars mailing list:

Tonight, fans will be afforded their third glimpse of Episode II footage, as the full teaser trailer for Attack of the Clones becomes available on starwars.com. The teaser trailer is also playing theatrically in front of screenings of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

This trailer deals with choosing between emotion and duty, obligation and desire. Anakin Skywalker and Padm? Amidala are at a crucial juncture in their lives, each devoted to an institution of greater purpose — for him, the Jedi order; for her, the Republic.

”In this one, we’re really focusing on one of the major themes of the film — the love story between Anakin and Padm?,” says Lucasfilm’s VP of Marketing, Jim Ward. “I think people will be able to see that it is a true love story set against a galaxy that’s in turmoil. It’s also set against the expectations that galaxy has of the roles and responsibilities of a Jedi and a Senator. Now these two are having to confront those realities while falling in love.”

The full teaser trailer follows quickly on the heels of “Mystery” and “Breathing,” two other previews of Episode II. Clocking in at over two minutes with new footage and new dialogue, the trailer represents the first real look at the Attack of the Clones story.

… and the company has also apparently made some of the exclusive Web content available to owners of the Star Wars: Episode I with Macs. If you own the EPI DVD, more information on the exclusive Web-only content is posted here.

For Windows users, simply insert your Episode I DVD, launch the InterActual player and select the starwars.com menu item which leads to the dvd.starwars.com link. Like its parent site, dvd.starwars.com will expand and grow its content, including plans for exciting integration of web and DVD media through InterActual’s technology.

Through the hard work of Apple Computer, our QuickTime video partner, starwars.com is also pleased to offer Macintosh owners equipped with DVD-ROM a method to see “Mystery” as well. With the Episode I DVD in your Mac’s DVD-ROM drive, click here to begin.

(The remainder of the dvd.starwars.site is still currently limited to Windows DVD-ROM users.)

Of course, the action continues on November 16 with a brand-new two-minute teaser trailer at starwars.com and in theaters with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

Note: You must have the Star Wars: Episode I DVD in your Mac to view the “Mystery” trailer. The new “Forbidden Love” trailer is also available on Apple.com.
