* Jan 18: I added the Sleazebaggano information
Opening Crawl : 10 years have passed. Chancellor Palpatine
has brought peace and prosperity to the Republic.
However, there exists armed discontent, and it is
led by Count Dooku, an expert Jedi Knight and charismatic
separatist who had disappeared from the Order, and
who now challenges the Chancellor's rule : the fact
that he was a Jedi is of grave concern to the Senate,
the Jedi Council, and the general populace. Queen
Jamillia is the newly elected ruler of Naboo, and
Padme is now a senator of Naboo; she's on her way
to the Senate, to vote upon a bill that would allow
the Republic to start building an army. (TheForce.net)
As the movie opens, we see how the Naboo Royal Starship
approaches Coruscant. It's escorted by several starfighers
Coruscant, landing platform
The Starship lands on one of the landing platforms.
The starfighters escorting the ship land on a different
platform. We see how a delegation leaves the Royal
Starship: apparently it's Amidala and her guards.
Suddenly, there's an explosion near the ramp (
Many lay dead and wounded. Amidala's decoy, Cord?,
is killed in the blast, but Amidala is uninjured:
she was piloting one of the accompanying Naboo Starfighters.
She was never onboard the starship when going to Coruscant,
so she escaped assassination. (TheForce.net - all
this information is correct I believe)
Padm? rushes over to the dying Cord?. In a tender
scene Padm? holds the young girl in her arms. Cord?'s
last words are "...I'm sorry, M'Lady...I'm...not
sure I..." She dies in Padm?'s arms. Captain
Typho, Padm?'s personal bodyguard and R2-D2 were also
in fighters and they are the only survivors. "Padme
lowers Corde to the ground. She gets up and looks
around at the devastation. There are tears in her
eyes." Padme: I should not have come back (prequel-spoilers.com;
I've been able to verify this dialogue and this scene).(
She's torn between what she must do and her passion
for her people. She decides to go on at the urging
of Captain Typho, the security officer who is in charge
over the protection of the young senator. R2-D2 goes
(TheForce.net - I've been able to verify this)
When Padme arrives safely in her apartment on Coruscant,
she calls Jar Jar Binks, who's official title is now
Representative Jar Jar Binks of the Gungans. In the
Senate, Jar Jar stands with Senator Padme on the Naboo
platform. Padme also sends for Obi-Wan and Anakin.
The first time we see these two Jedi, they are hurrying
to Padme's quarters. (aldera.net - I haven't been
able to verify this; could be speculation)
Amidala (for reasons not stated) believes that Count
Dooku is behind the assassination attempt that killed
Corde. The Jedi don't believe this is possible, because
Dooku -even though he left the Jedi order- is still
Coruscant, Galactic Senate
We see the Senate Building from the outside in an
establishing shot (like in TPM). (I've been able to
Coruscant, Galactic Senate
The tragic and disturbing news of Senator Amidala
of the Naboo system's assassination spreads quickly
through the galaxy, resonating in the great halls
of the Galactic Senate Chamber. Uv Gizen tells Palpatine
the terrible news. (the Force.net - I've been able
to verify this). The senate has gathered to vote on
whether or not to create an army for the Republic.
(according to a source, there's probably no talk of
a *clone* army yet). It appears that the Republic
may have no standing army of their own, or a small
one. Each system has its own autonomous local security
forces, and of course there were always the Jedi,
so there was no real need for a big army. (information/speculation
from a source)
Palpatine starts to speak, "My esteemed colleagues,
I have received some tragic and disturbing news."
(Aldera.net - I've been able to verify this)
Palpatine announces that senator Padme has been assassinated.
Palpatine says that the vote on the Clone defense
force proposal is even more urgent now, because had
Senator Padme the protection she needed, she would
not have met a violent end...so too could the Republic
meet such an end without proper protection (prequel-spoilers.com
- I haven't been able to verify this).
To Palpatine's surprise, Padme shows up and says that
she's ok. She voices her opinions about the lack of
safety in the galaxy and the Senate spends the rest
of this meeting dwelling on this topic. (aldera.net
- I haven't been able to verify)
Coruscant, Chancellors office
Hologram - Dar Wac (Call sheets on loresdelsith.unicyber.org)
Shortly after comes a meeting
in a small room on Coruscant. In the room are Senator
Toonbuck Toora, Senator Darsana, Senator Askaak, Bail
Organa, Jar Jar Binks, and S.C Palpatine. They are
discussing the idea of cloning an army for the Republic.
Most everyone in the room is for the clone army except
Bail Organa and Jar Jar Binks. Bail is undecided,
but Jar Jar is definitely against it. In this scene,
Palpatine says something like "Sometimes we have
to break the law in order to act in its best interest."
(Not a direct quote) Clearly he is saying that they
must create the Republic clone army whether or not
the Senate favors the decision. (aldera.net)
Then comes the second meeting in the Senate, in which
they discuss purely the idea of creating an army for
the Republic. Palpatine urges everyone to vote for
it. He is backed up by Senator Toonbuck Toora of the
Commerce Guild, Senator Orn Free Taa, and the Intergalactic
Bank Clan who offer to put up the cash. Bail Organa
has a role in this scene as well. Senator Padme also
speaks and (I think) she votes for the army.
Later, in the evening, there
is another attempt on Padme's life by bounty hunter
Zam Wessell. Again, the assassin fails (various
sources - I believe this information is correct)
Anakin and Obi-Wan chase Zam Wesell at high speeds
through the heavy traffic in the lower levels of Coruscant.
The chase comes to an end at a night club at the lower
levels of Coruscant" (various sources seem to
agree on this).
As the jedi attempt to enter,
the bouncer yells "NO JEDI" at them. Anakin
attempts to use a mind trick on the bouncer but Obi-Wan
stops him. Anakin then reaches for his saber and lights
it in the bouncer's face in attempt to scare him away.
The bouncer isn't frightened away, in fact he grows
double in size and gets ready to fight. Then Obi-Wan
uses a mind trick on him and the two Jedi enter the
club. As they enter, Obi-Wan says "Anakin, you'll
be the death of me." (aldera.net).
Obi-Wan and Anakin enter the nightclub to look for
Zam Wessel. This is where the Master and Apprentice
duo of Obi-Wan and Anakin encounter a rather seedy
character - Elian Sleazebaggano. Elian approaches
the two Jedi when they're in the building. He offers
them "death-sticks", which are probably
some sort of drug in the SW galaxy. As a good, law-abiding
citizen, Obi-Wan takes it upon himself to use a Jedi
mind trick on Sleazebaggano, advising him that he
should really "re-think his life". (the
outside the club
Finally, Obi-Wan and Anakin catch Zam outside the
club and begin to interrogate her, trying to find
out who she's working for and why they want Padme
dead. Before they can get any information out of her
Zam is assassinated by Jango Fett's Kyber Dart. (Aldera.net
and other sources). The weapon that kills Zam is mysterious
to the Jedi. Obi-Wan says to
Anakin "There's only one man who knows all about
these underground weapons at this level of Coruscant."
Next we cut to Obi-Wan and Anakin
walking into Dex's Diner where they meet an old connection
of his, Dexter Jettster.
Dexter is a large reptilian creature with four arms.
He has a ridge running along the top of his head towards
his back and his nose is almost non-existant. His
traditional attire includes a spattered on T-shirt,
pants and a small apron. Being a larger alien creature
of probably 300+ pounds, his shirt doesn't quite fit
right and is exposed to reveal his large belly. The
three fingered hands look perfect to grill burgers
in the greasy-spoon of his planet. He also wears sandals
that reveal he has three toes as well. He's a tough
guy and you had better not be messing with this fellow,
his four arms are stacked! And yes, it appears he
has a bad habit of smoking as well. (the Force.net
- this description is correct)
With three arms Dexter hugs
his long time friend Obi-Wan and with his other arm
he shakes hands with Anakin. Obi-Wan asks Dexter about
the weapon that killed Zam Wesell and Dex tells him
that it's called a "Kyber Dart" and it only
comes from the water planet Kamino. (aldera.net) According
to Dexter, the Kaminos are big cloners.
The two Jedi return to Padme's quarters. They discuss
the situation for a while.
Obi-Wan and Anakin have a meeting with the Jedi Council.
It is decided that Anakin must accompany Padme back
to Naboo where she'll be safe (Aldera.net). The Jedi
Council confers with Obi-Wan about Zam Wesell and
the mysterious Jango... Obi-Wan tells them that Kamino
is the only planet where Kyber Darts can be found;
he suspects that there's something larger and more
sinister on Kamino. The Jedi Council dispatches Obi-Wan
to journey to Kamino to investigate who was really
behind the assassination attempts on Senator Padme
Jedi Temple, Balcony
Before leaving for Kamino, Obi-Wan goes to the Jedi
hall of records to seek information about the planet
Kamino and to look up its location. Before
that, there are some establishing shots of the Jedi
Temple. We get to see numerous Jedi in training. One
we focus in on is of Yoda and a bunch of Jedi hopefuls
(little kids) on a balcony. Yoda is teaching them
about the lightsaber. He pulls his out and ignites
it and says something like "The lightsaber is
a Jedi's most precious weapon." (aldera.net -
I've been able to verify this)
Jedi Hall of Records
In the Jedi Hall of Records, Obi-Wan meets Jocasta
Nu, a librarian and academic (played by Alethea McGrath).
Yaddle is also there (?). Jocasta talks with Obi-Wan
about the "Lost Twenty" - the only 20 Jedis
to ever have left the order. Among these 20 is Count
Dooku, a former highly respected Jedi Master. In this
scene we see a bust of Dooku - a small statue of his
head. Jocasta Nu also mentions
Qui-Gon a couple of times. (Aldera.net)
Since Palpatine is (in a way) behind the cloning on
Kamino and doesn't want Obi-Wan to discover what's
happening there, he contacts Count Dooku and tells
him the Jedi Knight is on his way. Dooku dispatches
Jango Fett to assassinate Obi-Wan.(aldera.net - I
haven't been able to verify this)
Docking Platform, Spaceship
Before setting off for Naboo, Anakin and Padme are
bid farewell by Jar Jar Binks on their ship. Jar Jar
does not go with them.
The ship they travel in is sort
of like a scheduled flight between planets. Anakin
and Padme are not alone.. there are a lot of aliens
on this ship. (aldera.net)
They take to the stars and begin the journey. There
are scenes in the ship that get the love story underway
(aldera.net - speculation?).
In a scene, which features the
two characters getting closer and closer, Natalie
is dressed in a stiff, bright green, A-line travelling
dress (jim-jams) while the always alert Anakin wears
standard Jedi garb. Also included in the scene are
a whole bunch of other humans and aliens (juice.net
spy report) ( illustration).
On the crowded lower deck, R2 is serving drinks. In
one scene, we see Anakin sleeping (
(French Insider pictures)
Anakin and Padme arrive on Naboo. Here we are introduced
to Queen Jamillia, the new ruler of Naboo. (Queen
Jamillia only has two scenes - very small character)
The love between Anakin and Padme grows as they spend
more time together on Naboo. (aldera.net).
Anakin and Padme prepare to travel to a Lake Retreat
where they'll visit Padme's family. Anakin and Padme
are talking together near a fountain in the city.
Anakin is carrying two big suitcases and Padme one.
They carry shopping bags with bread, fabric and fruits
(The Force.net). Presents for Padme's family? (speculation).
They travel to a Lake Retreat and that's where they
meet Padme's family - her sisters and her mother Jobal
and her father Ruwee. There are also scenes on Naboo
in a kitchen, Anakin's bedroom, and Padme's bedroom.
"Kamino is where the clones are manufactured.
This planet looks like it's all water, and it rains
all the time. All the "cities" are built
on top of the water, but they're supported by columns
that go underneath the water. They kinda look like
those oil platforms out at sea, but much more impressive.
The cities look like that alderaan capital city from
ralph mcquarrie's "illustrated starwars book",
only metallic. The main city is called Water City.
The Kaminoans are really tall, and they have a fin
that runs from their head to their back.
Water City, landing platform?
When Obi-Wan arrives, he's greeted by Lama Su, the
Prime Minister of the planet. (aldera.net)
Water City, Conference Room
Obi-Wan is taken to a conference room to discuss matters
at hand. There, Obi-Wan learns to his surprise that
a CLONE army is being built there! The Kaminoans are
very kind to Obi-Wan; they believe that they are producing
Clone Warriors under a legitimate contract from the
Republic, and they've even been contacted by a member
of the Jedi Council to confirm this, a certain Master
"Sido-Dyas", who also persuaded them to
use the essence of Jango Fett for the Republic`s clone
armies (various sources agree on this). Kaminoan technology
is highly advanced. Energy is harnassed to create
environments that appear to be made of pure light.
Water City, Clone Laboratory
Obi-Wan is then taken to a clone laboratory with thousands
of rows of giant testtubes (the Force.net)
Water City, Clone Hatchery
The prime minister also shows him a clone hatchery
(similar, but the clones fully formed), clone barracks,
a clone commissary for dining, and a clone classroom.
There are thousands (maybe billions) of them here.
Everything looks like a production line in a giant
laboratory. (The Force.net)
Coruscant, Mace Windu's office, night
(Call sheets on loresdelsith.unicyber.org)
Obi-Wan reports by hologram to Mace Windu and Yoda.
He tells Mace Windu about the clone army being produced
on Kamino, and also about Sido-Dyas. Yoda tells Obi-Wan
to continue the investigation and urges him to find
out more about Sido-Dyas, specifically who he is working
for (episode-x.com - I've verified this information).
Mace Windu speculates that someone in the Senate may
be involved, and this secret army is being created
to start a war. (aldera.net - I've also verified this;
We're back on Naboo. We see the Lake Retreat, where
Anakin and Padme are staying.
Lake Retreat, Anakin's bedroom
At the lake, Anakin tosses and turns in his bed and
wakes up to a terrible nightmare concerning his mother.
(aldera.net - verified)
Lake Retreat, balcony
The next morning, Padme enters Anakin's room and find
him on the balcony meditating. She turns to leave
and he tells her not to go. "Your presence is
soothing," is the line. (aldera.net - this line
of dialogue is correct)
Water City, Cloning Hatchery
While Obi-Wan is in the cloning
hatchery, Jango Fett emerges and fires at Obi-Wan.
He misses. Obi-Wan lights his saber and starts to
Water City, Landing Platform
He catches up to him on a landing platform in the
pouring rain. (aldera.net) Back on Kamino, Jango and
Obi-Wan run into each other on a landing platform
where Slave I is docked. Jango and Boba Fett are about
to enter aboard the Slave-1. Jango Fett turns around
and Obi-Wan with his lightsabre ignited. Jango fires
on Obi-Wan with his blaster. Obi-Wan deflects the
bolt with his lightsaber. Jango moves behind obstacles
while continuing to fire. Obi-Wan side-shuffles while
deflecting the bolts. Obi-Wan charges. Jango opens
up with both guns. Obi-Wan deflects the bolts again.
Jango takes off with his rocket pack as Obi-Wan tries
to cut him down. Jango fires down at Obi- Wan, but
the Jedi deflects the bolts. Jango continues to fire
and lets loose with both guns as he flys backwards.
Obi-Wan tries to deflect the bolts. He rolls away
to avoid the bolts. Jango flies behind a tower. Jango
fires the rocket from his jetpack. Obi-wan is thrown
by the explosion. Jango flies away. Obi-Wan looks
around for Jango, who seems to have disappeared.
Obi-Wan turns around just in time to see...young Boba
Fett in the cockpit of Slave-1 taking aim at him.
The guns fire, but the shot misses Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan
drops his lightsaber, and suddenly Jango jumps down
from above. Obi-Wan recovers and jumps up; he kicks
Jango in mid-air. Jango crashes back to the landing
platform. Obi-Wan lands on his feet. Jango quickly
recovers and attacks. Obi-Wan blocks Jango as he swings
his gun up to fire.. and the two struggle for the
weapon. They grapple over the blaster. Obi-Wan elbows
Jango hard in the face. High angle shot: Obi-Wan judo
flips Jango over his back. Jango hits the ground hard
but recovers as Obi-Wan moves to attack. Jango traps
Obi-Wan?s foot. Jango spins Obi-Wan in mid air and
brings him down. Obi-Wan retaliates with a sweep kick
to Jango's head, knocking him back. Jango falls. Obi-Wan
get to his feet. Jango comes up and aims with an arm
mounted blaster. Obi-Wan leaps over the blasts and
onto Jango's shoulders, pummeling him, then flicks
himself back and over, flipping Jango over onto his
back. Jango rolls to his feet. Obi-Wan recovers. Jango
moves in to attack, chopping at Obi-Wan's head, who
blocks it. Jango ducks a swing from Obi-wan and grabs
him round the midriff. Jango sweeps Obi-Wan bodily
off his feet and flips him over, bringing him down
over his bent knee hard. Obi-Wan is momentarily stunned
as Jango spins and throws him bodily. Obi-Wan lands
and skids over the wet surface. Obi-Wan comes to a
halt and spots something: it?s his lightsaber.
Jango suddenly appears, flying towards Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan
gets up and reaches for his lightsaber. Jango fires
a cable. The cable wraps around Obi-Wan's hands, and
he fails to catch his lightsaber. Jango takes off
with his rocket pack and pulls Obi-Wan, dragging him
along the ground. Obi-Wan rolls to one side and manages
to roll around one of the towers. Obi-Wan jumps up
and wraps the cable around the tower. Jango crashes
to the ground. The rocket pack explodes into the building.
Obi-Wan charges and kicks jango over the side of the
platform. Jango slides down the platform pulling Obi-Wan
with him. Obi Wan is pulled down towards the edge
of the platform. Jango sees the edge and jams his
forearm ?claws? into the surface. Obi-Wan sees the
edge of the platform and slides past Jango off the
platform. Still tied to Jango, Obi-Wan is hanging
and Jango is getting pulled down now. Jango releases
the cable and Obi-Wan falls towards the water, tied
by his hands.
Obi-Wan reaches for a service platform and grabs it.
He jumps onto the platform. Meanwhile, Jango enters
and climbs into his ship. Obi-Wan runs out onto the
platform. He sees his lightsaber and summons it as
he runs forward. The lightsaber flies towards him
and he catches it. However, Jango?s ship already begins
to take off. Obi-Wan takes a seeker pod out of his
belt and throws it towards the ship. The seeker pod
sticks to the side of the ship. Obi-Wan watches Jango?s
ship takin off in the rain (
Obi-Wan - Quarters
Hologram - Obi-Wan (Call sheets on loresdelsith.unicyber.org)
Without delay, Obi-Wan hurries back to his ship and
this time contacts Chancellor Palpatine directly.
He tells him everything he found out on Kamino.. (aldera.net
- I'm not sure it's Palpatine that Obi-Wan contacts)
Theed, Royal Palace
Anakin's concern for his mother grows so strong that
he decides to leave Naboo with Padme and to head for
Tatooine (much like Luke deciding to leave Dagobah
to help his friends on Bespin). Anakin
and Padme make their way back to Theed where they
meet Queen Jamillia. They tell her they have to leave
immediately and she willingly gives them a ship. (aldera.net)
Anakin, Padme and R2-D2 take off for Tatooine in a
Nubian ship (the French insider pictures show Anakin
and Padme inside a Nubian cockpit). It is aboard this
ship and on this journey through space that Anakin
and Padme share their first kiss. (aldera.net - I
After contacting Palpatine (?), Obi-Wan gets in his
ship and takes off into the sky in pursuit of Jango
Fett in Slave I. Not after long, Jango realizes that
Obi-Wan is on his tail so he takes his ship into an
asteroid field in attempt to lose him. Obi-Wan follows.
There is a hot chase scene through the asteroids where
Obi-Wan gets caught up in some trouble. (aldera.net)
Believing that Obi-Wan was killed in the asteroid
field, Jango and Boba proceed to their destination
- Geonosis. Obi-Wan, of course, is not dead. When
he finally makes it out of the asteroid field he picks
up Jango with the tracking device and continues to
Geonosis is surrounded by a massive asteroid field
and has rings made up of asteroids. (The Force.net)
As Jango and Obi-Wan approach
Geonosis, there are two droid control ships in orbit
(indicating that there's an army of battle droids
on Geonosis). Jango races up to one of them and two
fighters come out. The Jango's surprise, the fighters
start attacking him as well as Obi-Wan. Jango then
makes his way to the planet where he lands. Obi-Wan
Geonosis is an entirely rocky planet. The environment
is dominated by canyons, and giant stalagmite formations.
These formations are hollowed out, and serve as towers.
The Geonosians (who look a bit like the Ep. I battledroids)
live here and live underneath the surface of this
planet. (the Force.net)
Obi-Wan scales one of the 'stalagmite' towers. (Call
sheets on loresdelsith.unicyber.org)
Obi-Wan enters the tower thru a small blue window-like
opening (blue stairs) (Call sheets on loresdelsith.unicyber.org)
Obi-Wan spies on a bunch of Geonosians, building new
super battle droids.
Hologram - Obi-Wan. (Call sheets on loresdelsith.unicyber.org)
Obi-Wan sends a general distress
call, that is also intercepted by Chancellor Palpatine
(we see Palpatine's office and Obi-Wan's holographic
message). In the distress call, Obi-Wan tells about
the army of advanced Battledroids and the Control
Ship. "War is inevitable" (aldera.net).
Palpatine contacts Count Dooku. He tells him Obi-Wan
has discovered the planet and that a Jedi army is
on it's way.
Obi-Wan is captured by droids and taken prisoner...
(aldera.net - I've been able to verify that Obi-Wan
is a captive at some point)
Upon arrival to Tatooine, Anakin, Padme, and R2D2
make their way to Mos Espa.
In Mos Espa, they go to Watto's
shop. When they arrive, Watto is there. He is outside
his front door chasing a pit droid around. He is running
on the ground and flapping his wings hard, but it
unable to fly. He picks up a stick and slaps the droid
in the nose, causing it to fold up and stop running
around. Anakin, Padme, and R2 approach him.(aldera.net)
Anakin tells Watto who he is
and that he's come for his mother. Watto tells Anakin
that she is now married to Cliegg Lars and they live
out on a moisture farm outside a city called Mos Eisley
Anakin gets a speeder and he, Padme, and R2 hurry
towards the city Watto described. (aldera.net)
the Lars Farm
When they arrive at the Lars moisture farm, Anakin
meets Cliegg, Owen, and Beru. His mother is not there
and Anakin gets very concerned. Cliegg tells him that
early that morning, she went out to gather a certain
crop which grows only on moisture vaporators (prequel-spoilers.com).
She did not return at the time
she usually does so Cliegg formed a search party and
went out to find her. In the process, he failed and
was badly injured by tusken raiders. Most of the search
party was killed. Anakin jumps on Owen Lars's swoop
bike and speeds out into the desert. Padme runs after
him yelling "Anakin! Stop!" (aldera.net).
After getting directions from a Jawa along the way,
Anakin heads into a hilly, rocky region of the desert.
the Lars Farm, the Garage
While Anakin is away, Padme completes C-3PO by applying
his plating in the Lars' Garage on Tatooine (The Force.net).
Desert, Hills & Rocks
When Anakin finds his mom, she
is being carried by Tuskens. She is obviously badly
wounded already. As Anakin approaches, a Tusken suddenly
turns around and slugs Shmi in the stomach with his
gaffi stick. Anakin sees this and screams as he approaches.
The Tuskens get spooked, they drop Shmi and take off.
Anakin runs to his mother and holds her in his lap.
They exchange a few words and she dies in his arms.
Anakin is devastated. He blames himself for her death.
He sits next to her in silence
for a long time and he gives her some kind of small
funeral; he digs a hole in the sand and puts Shmi
in it. He then covers the tomb in rocks. Anakin
sits on a top of a rocky hill all night near the place
where his mother was slain. He is in a meditative
state, trying to calm his flurried emotions. As the
twin suns of Tatooine rise over the horizon, Anakin
catches a glimpse of a few Tusken mothers playing
with their children in the shadows below him. He watches
them for a bit, then stands up. Staring at them with
a blank expression on his face, he reaches for his
saber, ignites it, and walks towards them.. Then the
scene cuts out. (aldera.net & starwars-union.de)
(Aldera.net has a report about
another, more violent version of this scene that was
initially in the script but not filmed: "...Anakin
walks to a tusken settlement. He slays the entire
village - men, women, children, everyone..")
Tatooine, Lars Homestead
When Anakin returns to the Lars
farm, he tells Cliegg Lars that he found his mother
and she was dead. Cliegg (who's still very injured)
and Anakin have a conversation that goes as such:
If I hadn't gone away, none of this would have happened.
We'd be happy.
But you'd still be slaves.
But at least she'd still be alive and we'd be happy.
As the conversation proceeds, they're kind of raising
their voices at each other. Anakin is obviously extremely
jealous of his mother's love for the Lars family.
Tatooine, Lars Homestead, Garage ?
The argument stops when Padme
puts a soft hand on Anakin's shoulder. She takes him
into the next room and shows him C-3PO, who now has
covers. (Padme, R2, and Owen added then when Anakin
was in the desert.) And so follows this dialogue:
Isn't he great?
He's perfect. (aldera.net)
Tatooine, Lars Homestead
Hologram - Obi-Wan (Call sheets on loresdelsith.unicyber.org)
Anakin receives the general
distress call from Obi-Wan
Amidala wants to go to Geonosis, but Anakin doesn't
want to go. (aldera.net) Owen tells Anakin to stay
on Tatooine and not to get involved in Obi-Wan's damned
fool idealistic crusade... (speculation). However,
Amidala convinces Anakin that they *have* to go to
Geonosis. Owen presents C-3PO to Anakin because
he realises they share a past, and he feels bad about
what has happened to Shmi. 3PO is all that there is
left of Anakin's relationship with his mother.
Amidala and Anakin land on the planet Geonosis near
the stalagmite tower that encompasses the arena. Padme
and Anakin get in an argument about what to do next.
Anakin doesn't want to fight, Padme reminds him of
their obligations to the Republic. (aldera.net
- there is definitely an argument between Anakin and
Padme, not sure about the details). C-3PO and R2D2
stay on the ship, commenting to each other about the
heated discussion. C-3PO: "Sometimes I just don't
understand human behavior." (aldera.net, theforce.net)
Anakin and Padme leave their
ship with the droids and then proceed towards a large
rock formation (it's basically a building made out
of rock.) They are trying to find Obi-Wan. When they
enter the building, they are surrounded by droids.
Then Count Dooku, who is standing on a level above
them, looks down at them and says "Give up. You
are captured." (Not exact quote) Dooku Force-grabs
Anakin's lightsaber right out of his hand and then
the droids take him and Padme in separate jail cells.
On Geonosis, a gladiatorial Execution Arena is built
into the ground : a giant pit, and it's not really
circular all the way around. The arena looks like
it's built into the landscape here, flowing with the
rock, around giant columns. Gladiators are decked
out in full helmet, shield, and armor. (The Force.net)
Overlooking a grand arena in a VIP style "box"
sits Count Dooku and Poggle the Lesser. To his left
sits a Nemoidian. Jango Fett stands behind Poggle.
Dooku, Jango, Poggle, and a
Neimodian are watching a Reek devour slaves, and decide
to feed Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Padme to the Reek as
well. They bring out the three prisoners and are preparing
to tie them up to poles. First, they tie down Padme..
Dooku and Poggle talk and watch the arena. Unnoticed
by them, there is a flash far behind them and one
of the Geonosian guards drops to the ground. A hand
taps Dooku's shoulder. Mace Windu reveals himself
with one hand and with the other keeps Jango at bay
with his lightsaber.
View of the Stadium as hundreds of Jedi enter from
all passageways. All ready for confrontation with
their lightsabers ignited. As the Jedi free Obi-Wan
and Anakin from the Reek (aldera.net), Dooku reveals
the droid army awaiting the jedi. Mace reacts as the
droids (battledroids, destroyer droids and superdroids
(which look like a cross between battledroid and stormtrooper,
very big) emerge from the dark passageway behind him.
High angle of the VIP box and droids are coming from
all entrances. Mace is surrounded. Jango backs out
of firing range. The droids open fire.
Mace deflects the first bolts as Dooku and the other
dignitaries move to safer ground. The Droids continue
to fire as mace deflects the bolts right back at them.
Full shot of Mace as he spins and deflects shots from
all sides. A number of droids are smashed back by
their own bolts. Mace continues to defend. Jango brings
up his flamethrower and fires at Mace. Geonosians
are flying away in the background. Mace leaps high
as flame scorches the place he was. His cloak is on
fire. The Nemoidian is hit by the flame. Jango blasts
at Mace in the air. Mace deflects all the bolts as
he rolls in mid air and down into the arena. His cloak
is still on fire.
Mace lands in the arena. Pan to Jango looking for
an escape. Pan to Dooku leaving the area. Mace throws
off the smouldering cloak and looks around the arena.
Wide angle as Jedi fight for their lives against the
superior number of droids. Two Jedi leap from another
VIP box just as its blasted by droids. More shots
of Jedi defending themselves from attacks from all
sides. A jedi destoys a superdroid but is gunned down
by a destroyer droid.
Mace looks back at the VIP box he was in. Droids in
the VIP box shoot at Mace who defends. Jango takes
off in the distance. As Mace defends from the stands,
Jango lands behind him in the arena.
Jango aims his cable at Mace from behind him as Mace
still defends. Jango fires the cable. Mace turns just
in time to force push the cable... around a nearby
destroyer droid. Mace turns away from Jango to take
care of some droids in the arena. The entangled Destroyer
turns and fires upon the source of the cable... taking
Jango by surprise as shots whip around him. Jango
detaches the cable and flies past the destroyer (jetpack
Jango's flight path leads him directly behind Mace
who is still battling droids. As Jango passes, Mace
swings his lightsaber over his head and hits Jango's
jetpack. Jango goes into an uncontrolled dive and
the destroyer droid tracking Jango ends up firing
at Mace who deflects all the bolts. Jango crashes
to the ground and rolls to his feet. The destroyer
blasts at Mace. Jango jettisons the damaged jetpack
while Mace continues with the destoyer. Jango fires
at Mace with both blasters. Mace spins to deflect
the new attack. With a destroyer droid on one side
and Jango Fett on the other, Mace defends from both
foe at the same time. Mace leaps into the air leaving
the destroyer and Jango firing at each other. Jango
leaps into a sideways roll and keeps firing at the
destroyer. The destroyer explodes under Jango's attack.
Mace lands and a battledroid fires at him. He deflects
the bolt without even looking and charges towards
Jango. Jango notices something as Mace charges. Jango's
POV of Mace charging with battles raging in the background.
The Reek (four legged, tri-horned beast with a bull-
like nose ring) appears from a passageways and charges
through a number of droids after Mace. Shot tracking
the Reek towards Mace. Jango looks stunned in the
distance. Mace turns and spots the Reek as Jango scrambles
to his feet. Mace's POV of The Reek charging directly
at him. Mace swipes at the Reek chopping off one of
it's horns. The Reeks still catches Mace with its
shoulder sending Mace sprawling. Mace loses his lightsaber.
Mace hits the ground and rolls up onto his side. Mace's
ground POV of his lightsabe and Jango running toward
it. Just before Jango reches the Lightsaber, one of
The Reek's feet slams down on it.
The Reek snarls at Mace as he gets back on his feet
and tries to force calm over the beast. It then turns
to Jango on the other side making him back off. High
angle of the Reek and the two foes on either side.
Mace attempting to get closer to his lightsaber and
Jango trying to get a clear shot. Jango peer's under
the Reek's belly looking for a shot. Jango moves slowly
around. The Reek is still looking at Jango and Mace
heads closer to his lightsaber. The Reek reacts to
Mace's close proximity. Mace tries to calm the beast
with the force. The Reek calms somewhat. Mace moves
closer. Mace tries to free the lightsaber with the
force. Jango moves toward the Reek's hindquarters.
Jango continues to move. Mace is obscured by the Reek's
Jango spots his discarded jetpack lying on the ground
a short distance beyond Mace. Close up on the jetpack.Jango
shifts aim and fires at the Jetpack. Mace reacts throwing
himself backwards and away. The Jetpack explodes as
Mace dives clear. Mace hits the ground in a roll and
ends near a wall. Startled by the explosion, The Reek
rears up on it's hind legs, freeing the lightsaber.
Jango is ready to pounce.
Jango dives at the lightsaber but... It floats offscreen
just as Jango reaches it. The lightsaber returns to
Mace's hand. Jango looks up at the Reek as it's shadow
falls over him. Jango rolls out of the way of the
Reeks front legs as they crash back down on the ground.
The Reeks charges at Mace trampling Jango. Jango avoids
being crushed by the beast's huge feet. Tracking the
Reek as it charges at Mace. Mace leaps into the air
as the Reek reaches him, causing the Reek to smash
into the wall of the arena.
Mace flips into the stands in the midst of a group
of droids. Mace lands and attacks. Jango recovers
and retrieves his blaster. The Reek shakes it's head,
looks around and spots Jango. The Reek lumbers around
and trotts towards Jango. Jango raises his blaster
and aims carefully. The Reek begins to fully charge.
Jango pauses. Jango's POV as Reek charges closer.
In the last moment, Jango fires into the beast's eys
and dives out of the way still ready with blasters
if need be. The Reek tumbles and crashes to the ground,
Jango stands and whips around looking for Mace with
both blasters raised. Mace leaps down from the stands
and charges forward. Jango opens fire desperately
but Mace deflects all the bolts as he runs. Mace takes
out both blasters with blinding speed. Mace lunges
with his lightsaber at Jango's head and Jango ducks
but is left off balance. Jango manages one blast from
his arm mounted blaster but it misses. Mace spins
and slices across and downward. Jango's helmet bounces
and rolls in the dust. Jango's body falls to the dirt
(safely assumed dead), leaving Mace the victor. (description

During this fight, Yoda arrives
with an army of clonetroopers. Yoda retrieved the
clones from Kamino and brought then to the battle
on Geonosis. It is Yoda and the clones that finally
save Padme from the arena and she then joins them
in the fight. She leads a squadron of clonetroopers.
Kit Fisto is a Jedi General and leads an attack. (aldera.net)
outside the Arena.
While Jango and Mace Windu were
fighting, Obi-Wan and Anakin have managed to escape
from the arena - Padme stays behind. Because they
don't have lightsabers, Anakin and Obi-Wan pick up
two sabers each from dead Jedi bodies. They both engage
in the attack and deflect droid blaster fire with
two lightsabers, one in each hand. They fight their
way indoors and out of sight from the arena. Anakin
tells Obi-Wan he wants to go back for Padme but Obi-Wan
tells him to stay focused on the task at hand. The
line is something like "You are my padawan and
you must do as I say." Anakin stays with him.
Explosions begin in space as
Republic forces begin assaulting the Droid Control
Dooku has retreated to his stronghold. A lightsaber
battle takes place in a hangar. There is a ship that
looks like a cockroach, it looks like a teardrop from
the top-view -- that's in the background. (The Force.net).
This might be Count Dooku's ship, and according to
another report, it looks like this: "It is a
tear drop shape, a very organic-looking ship. It moves
with the point facing the rear, with the rounded-shape
as the cockpit and a large window facing forward.
It's a large ship, probably to scale about the size
of the Falcon, but much more sleek and streamlined.
Other spies have described it as a beetle, and I would
assume this was part of the inspiration for the new
design and agree that it does look in part like that
The duel takes place during the last battle of the
film. Obi-Wan discovers that Dooku is in fact Darth
Tyranus a bit earlier on in the film, and the final
duel takes place with the characters of Anakin, Count
Dooku and Obi-Wan.
Anakin and Obi-Wan are fighting
droids inside the building near the arena. They are
separated because of battle droids. Enters Count Dooku.
He goes after Anakin first. Obi-Wan sees this and
fights furiously against the droids so he can get
to Anakin - he doesn't want to leave his companion
alone with a Sith Lord after he lost Qui-Gon that
way in Episode I. (aldera.net)
Tyranus and Anakin fight right thru the hangar and
apparently thru Dooku's ship. Anakin
experiences that Count Dooku is much stronger than
he, and he somehow stops fighting with Dooku (he gets
knocked off a ledge and they are separated?); Dooku
makes his way to Obi-Wan. Dooku and Obi-Wan do battle.
Dooku addresses Obi-Wan as "Master Kenobi"
Finally Anakin returns to the
battle and it's now a 2 on 1 situation. Dooku is the
greatest swordsman ever, so he basically puts them
to shame. Tyranus has a cool line to Obi-Wan during
this fight. It is not clear who, but a character in
the fight may use two sabres at some point.
space, Control Ship
As the battle on the ground rages on, the battle in
the sky above Geonosis in underway as well. The battle
in the sky revolves around Ki-Adi Mundi leading six
Jedi in an assault on one of the two droid control
ships: they stealthily enter and make their way to
Geonosis, Control Ship
Ki-Adi Mundi, Plo Koon, 6 Jedi, 4 Neimoudian pilots.
Ki Adi Mundi leads the raid onto the droid control
ship, they fight their way inside. (Call sheets on
Geonosis, Control Ship
Ki-Adi Mundi, Plo Koon, 6 Jedi, 4 Neimoudian pilots.
Ki Adi Mundi reaches the control panel and punches
the master switch. (Call sheets on loresdelsith.unicyber.org).
There are four Nemoidians in the control center. When
Ki-Adi throws the switch in attempt to deactivate
the droids on the ground, nothing happens. It appears
the Nemoidians have learned that lesson after the
Battle of Naboo.
Among the Jedi who attack the Droid Control ship is
Plo Koon. Somewhere in this sequence he is injured
badly and almost dies. He is shot by destroyer droids.
Count Dooku force-throws things
at the Jedi and they are both getting injured. Dooku
then chops a large mechanical loading device (like
a claw) and it begins to fall on Anakin and Obi-Wan.
This device, however, does not land on the Jedi [no
details known yet]. As Dooku sees Yoda enter the fight,
he Force-throws objects at the two Jedi and knocks
Anakin out. Dooku and Yoda then fight.... (aldera.net
says this is in the script, but that a different version
has been filmed in which Dooku tells Anakin that Padme
has been killed. When Obi-Wan tells Anakin to to concentrate
on the battle and not to think of Padme's death, Anakin
becomes so enraged he takes a swing at Obi-Wan.)
According to Aldera.net, the script describes very
briefly a lightsaber battle between Yoda and Dooku:
Dooku and Yoda fight with lightsabers; Yoda rolls
around on the ground extremely quickly, and is much
faster and stronger than Dooku. The battle ends as
Yoda Force-pushes Dooku off a ledge and the badly
beaten Sith Lord runs to his ship.
He gets on his stellar sail ship and lifts off (starwars-union.de
- I've verified this scene).
The collapsed crane is pinning Obi-Wan and an unconscious
Anakin to the ground. Yoda steps in and closes his
eyes, concentrating. It takes almost all of his power,
but finally the crane lifts clear and smashes down
out of the way. However, he is left completely exhausted.
(episode-x.com - this is correct)
Right after that, Padme arrives with a bunch of republic
clone troopers at her side. She runs to her sweetheart
Anakin and throws her arms around him. The captain
of the clone group meanwhile approaches General Yoda
and tells him that the resistance has found an end,
and that he awaits new orders. (starwars-union.de

After this, Lord Tyranus goes to Coruscant, to the
warehouse district away from the tall buildings; everything
looks in disrepair.

There, he meets with Darth Sidious and he informs
his Master that the war has begun which pleases Sidious.

We see the Jedi Temple.
Jedi Council Chamber
"The atmosphere in the Jedi Council in their
last scene is quite depressing and it is mentioned
that the Jedi are left with a lot of casualties including
members of the Jedi Council. Mace Windu, Yoda and
Obi-Wan have a conversation about it. It seems that
the only council members to make it to Episode III
are Yoda, Mace Windu, Plo Koon, and Ki-Adi-Mundi."
OBI-WAN: I must admit without the clones, it would
not have been a victory.
YODA: Victory? Victory, you say? Not victory. A defeat,
it was, Master Obi-Wan. Begun, the Clone War has.

It's rumored that Anakin and Amidala's wedding was

Being a small ceremony, they are wed by a Naboo holy
