Draco from Dragonheart in TPM
Near the end of the movie, many readers including
Obi-Won Ton have pointed out what could be
Draco from Dragonheart. You'll remember that ILM
did alot of work on that film, so this cameo does
seem very possible. When Yoda is conferring with
Obi-Wan, there is something flying outside of the
window. When the scene is a closeup shot of Obi-Wan,
over his shoulder outside is a thing flying across
the sky that looks like Draco from Dragonheart. Of
course we can't be sure and don't have any screenshots
(yet), but it's something to look for next time you
see the movie.
Horses on Naboo, Sitting Ducks
The statues of the horses on Naboo made us laugh.
Not only did we not see any horses on Naboo, but
couldn't find any animal that would even remotely
resemble horses throughout the movie. If you look
closely during the celebration scene at the end, you
will see horses high atop the archway of Theed. And
one other comment, Panaka says "we're sitting ducks."
Son of Suns
Shorthy reminds us of the "Son of the Suns" sound clip that
can both be heard at the victory celebration at the end of TPM
and at the end of ROTJ. Defnintely hidden, and definftely in the
movie. You can read the full report on this here.
Jake Lloyd's Sister in TPM
Jake Lloyd's sister Madison is also in the movie.
She's not in it for very long, so keep your eyes open
during the celebration scene at the end. She is
standing right behind her brother. Check out the
screenshot on the right to identify her, and you can
also click on it to enlarge.
Dan Madsen cameo
Dan Madsen, the fearless leader of the Star Wars Insider
fan club, is seen grabbing the reigns for Jar Jar's'
Kaadu at the victory celebration as he dismounts. It's a
quick but noticeable cameo again near the end of the film.
Cameos for Ben Burtt, Rick McCallum and Martin Smith
We just got the screenshot for this one yet, and along
with this description should enable you to see the
cameos of our favorite producers and friends. A
difficult to catch little details like extras are
noticeable in the end sequence in the courtyard on
Naboo. There's the little mass with Palpatine and the
gang, and standing behind them, you can notice Ben Burtt,
the sound designer and editor for TPM. I looked again
when somebody was bowing and saw the film's producer,
Rick McCallum. They are dressed in brown decorative robes.
Martin Smith is also in the ending of the film, standing
next to Ben Burtt and Rick McCallum. Rick is in the middle,
Ben is on screen left of Rick and Martin is on screen
right of him.
Jabba Played by Himself
Chad reminded us that in the credits JABBA THE HUT is
listed as being played by HIMSELF.
J-A-V-V-A the Hutt in the credits
On the ILM campus there is a small portable building
(literally a hut) with a vendor set-up to sell coffee,
espresso, beverages, pastries, donuts, bagels, etc. to the
ILM crew. The employees of ILM wouldn't make it through
the day without Javva the Hutt, as the little establishment
is named. In gratitude for the proprietor's long history
of great service Javva's was included in TPM ending credits.
At the company screenings of TPM, we heard that the credit got
one of the biggest rounds of applause from the Lucas employees
when they saw it. Good stuff, and a nice cameo.
Darth Vader's Breathing at the end of TPM
No screen shots are necessary for this one, as you can
only hear this item. At then end of the movie,
after the credits have scrolled, you can hear the
menacing breathing of Darth Vader! It's a great
foreshadowing of what's ahead!
