"The dark side of the force is a pathway to many abilities, some considered to be unnatural," said Anakin Skywalker, in the latest Star Wars thriller.

And at the Bonita Lakes Theater, it did seem unnatural as Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith opened up in Meridian and nationwide.

People waited for the third installment of the six chapters for more than four hours until its midnight viewing.

Star Wars 3 was all about Anakin Skywalker being drawn to the dark side, but outside people were telling how they were drawn to the movie itself.

"I said it's going to be the last film for a long time at least, and I've been a Star Wars fan ever since I was a little kid," said Clint Pugh, who was first in line. "So I wanted to make this last one pretty important, wanted to be the first one."

"Oh, we've been here for hours waiting to see it. I've watched it ever since it came out in the seventies and I've seen every one of them. Tried to be here for the first show and I just love it," said Christie Bercham, who was second in line.

Some fans are saying this installment in the popular Star Wars storyline is the best ever.
