Star Wars: Episode III Wraps Ahead of Schedule

STAR WARS: EPISODE III wrapped principal photography at Fox Studios Australia on Sept. 17, 2003, five days ahead of schedule, according to a Lucasfilm announcement.

"It's almost unheard of for a major motion picture to come in under-schedule," boasted producer Rick McCallum of the shoot that was originally scheduled for 12 weeks.

Post-production will commence immediately in Marin County, California, where director George Lucas, McCallum, editors Roger Barton and Ben Burtt and the visual effects team at Industrial Light & Magic will work up to the film's release in May 2005.
