Star Wars: Swarm War (also known as Star Wars: Dark Nest III - The Swarm War) is an American 2D-animated epic space opera film, developed by Genndy Tartakovsky, and set in the Star Wars universal franchise by George Lucas. Based on Troy Denning's book of the same name, it is the third and final installment of the standalone film series, Star Wars: The Dark Nest Trilogy, and the novel-inspired traditional-animation film. It features the voices of Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Misty Lee, Anthony Daniels, Kate Higgins, Scott McNeil, David Hayter, and Travis Willingham.

The film follows where Unseen Queen ends, and involves a three way war between the Chiss, the Killik, and the Galactic Alliance. Luke Skywalker declares himself Grand Master of the Jedi, and succeeds in unifying them to an extent, and leads an assault on the Dark Nest. Lomi Plo meets her death at Skywalker's hand, and UnuThul is defeated by Luke as well after losing an arm. Thul is taken in by the Jedi for psychological treatment as the Killik revert to their naturally peaceful state, no longer unified by the Hive Mind or driven by the ambitions of the Dark Nest.

Produced by Lucasfilm and Lucasfilm Feature Animation in association with Cartoon Network Studios and Nelvana, Star Wars: Swarm War was released in the United States theatrically by 20th Century Fox on December 14, 2007. Often described as a novel technique of hand-drawn 2D animation, similar to the Star Wars: Clone Wars microseries, the motion of the spaceships was computer enhanced 3D animation. Like Revenge of the Sith, the film is citing that George Lucas wanted the end of the trilogy to have similar aspects to a romantic tragedy, thus building into Darth Vader's state at the beginning of the original trilogy. It received positive reviews and has been deemed an improvement over the first two standalone films by many, with praise for its action sequences, mature themes, score, visual effects, darker tone, and the voice performances of Ford, Fisher, Daniels, and Grey Delisie; criticism largely focused on the film's dialogue and aspects of Hamill's voice performance.
