The final scenes for the latest - and last - Star Wars movie have been shot.

The villainous Darth Vader

But before you get too excited, there's still tonnes of work to do before the film hits the big screen.

Mid-way point

"Shooting the film is only a small part of the whole process," producer Rick McCallum said, according to Sky.

"This is only the mid-way point. We still have 18 months to get through."

Episode III will be the sixth film in the Star Wars series.

Fact File
When the films came out
Star Wars - 1977
The Empire Strikes Back - 1980
Return Of The Jedi - 1983
Episode I: The Phantom Menace - 1999
Episode II: Attack Of The Clones - 2002

The first three films were released between 1977 and 1983.

Dark Side

A whole new generation discovered the films when it was decided to make three "prequel" films, explaining the events which led to the action in the original movie.

Episode III is due for release in 2005.

It's set to reveal how Anakin Skywalker joins the Dark Side and turns into the villainous Darth Vader.
