5-19-05 - NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) The wait is over. Legions of "Star Wars" fans across the country endured long lines Wednesday night to catch the opening of the movie.

"Star Wars Episode Three - Revenge of the Sith" is the sixth and final episode of the science fiction series that began in 1977.
