Count Dooku

Count Dooku
  • No rematch between Yoda and Dooku, though both will have their own fights. - SW Insider
  • Christopher Lee shot a pivotal confrontation scene as Count Dooku which will have action and powerful dialogue.
  • Count Dooku's Ep3 role is brief.
  • In-between takes, Christopher Lee jokingly "decapitates" Nick Gillard and mentions all the previously movies he filmed when he decapitated a character on-screen. (hint?)
  • Count Dooku will only use one lightsaber in Ep3. - RM
  • While much of the Dooku duel requires visual effects work, from what Pablo saw it will be very cool, especially a certain part at the end. - PH
  • Dooku had no direct role in the death of Darth Maul. - PH
  • Count Dooku is among the main characters with stunt work demanding enough to require digital doubling and mock heads of the character, created in exact detail. - OS
  • During reshoots, isolated segments of the Count Dooku vs. Jedi rematch were shot. - OS
  • One shot has Dooku using the Force to make a Jedi's day go from bad to worse. Christopher Lee has to turn around, extend his hand, and look as devilish as possible. "That's perfect timing," George says, "now try one with a little more malice and evilness." - OS
  • A crash-mat is on the set to catch Hayden as he stumbles from a kick [by Count Dooku]. - OS
  • Ewan is rigged to a wire that lifts him off the ground from a Force throw [by Dooku]. - OS
  • Dooku knows the true identity of Darth Sidious. - PH
  • Dooku is not Sifo-Dyas. - PH
  • Count Dooku and his voluptuously curved lightsaber will be back for Episode III. - RM
  • Tyranus will not fall down a pit or abyss to his death in Episode III. - PH
  • Darth Tyranus (Count Dooku) uses every dark side power he has in a battle near the beginning of Revenge of the Sith. - OS
  • The Separatist commerce barons know that Dooku's master is Darth Sidious. - PH
  • The Anakin vs. Dooku duel is longer than their duel in Attack of the Clones, and it's much more intense. - NG
  • Anakin has learned much since his last battle with Separatist leader Count Dooku, as a fight aboard the Trade Federation cruiser shows. - Insider #80
  • In the [Dooku] duel, Dooku tosses both Anakin and Obi-Wan through the air like rag-dolls, using the Force to turn the two Jedi into barely-controlled missiles. - OS
