"Revenge of the Sith" Plot Revealed by Lego?

Is the plot of the next "Star Wars" movie known?

I just got my latest Lego catalog and the descriptions of the sets tell a lot of the story (spoilers follow, maybe). Anakin hopes in his Jedi starfighter to fight vulture droids, Droid Trifighters, and the ARC-170 Fighter, then later the droid armada attacks the Wookiee home planet of Kashyyyk, but the Wookiee catamaran fights back, while elsewhere Obi-Wan Kenobi races across the sinkhole planter of Utapau on Boga in pursuit of General Grievous, then cut back to Kashyyyk (slow wipe transition here, presumably) where Mace Windu leads the Jedis against the mighty clone turbo tank and clone scout walkers, then at some point Anakin Skywalker is wounded in battle and dons the Darth Vader getup, and naturally Anakin fights Obi-Wan in a climactic lightsaber duel on a planet of molten lava.

Do I need to see the movie now? Especially since you know the story has to lead in to the original "Star Wars" movie. Presumably Obi-Wan "loses" the lightsaber duel (with a knowing, Jedi-like smile on his face) in a way that allows him to escape to Tattooine with young Luke tucked under his arm, while DarthV grabs his TIE Fighter and zooms off to tell the emperor the good news. Actually my group is going on May 19, so I could see it for free, but it occurs to me that I didn't see the second movie...for the simple reason that I wasn't working at Microsoft at the time, so I didn't get the slight push I needed to bother.

LOL! I popped into a Lego store last night and thought the exact same thing! Did you notice that the droid "assembling" Vader is the same droid that ... well, I won't give it away, but it's kinda neat.

I'm just waiting for Lucas to finish all this Star Wars crap and focus on the real important stuff like finally releasing Howard the Duck on DVD
