NABOO PALACE - THRONE ROOM - DAY
RUNE, and DARTH MAUL walk with a hologram of DARTH SIDIOUS.
: ...we've sent out patrols. We've already located their
starship in the swamp....It won't be long, My Lord.
DARTH SIDIOUS : This is an unexpected move for her.
It's too aggresive.. Lord Maul, be mindful.
DARTH MAUL : Yes, my Master.
DARTH SIDIOUS : Be patient... Let them make the first
NABOO EDGE OF SWAMP/ GRASS PLAINS - DAY
GUNGAN SENTRY sits on top of the ancient temple heah,
searching the landscape with a pair of electrobinoculars.
He sees something and yells down to ANAKIN at the foot
of the statue.
LOOKOUT : Daza comen!
ANAKIN : All right. They're here!
yells and runs over to PADME and the JEDI, who are discussing
a battle plan with FIVE GUNGAN GENERALS. SABE and EIRTAE
stand nearby. BOSS NASS puts his arm around JAR JAR.
NASS : Yousa doen grand. Jar Jar bringen da Naboo together.
JAR JAR : Oh, no, no, no...
BOSS NASS : So, wesa maken yousa Bombad General.
JAR JAR : General??! Oh, no..
JAR's eyes roll back, his tongue flops out and he faints.
FOUR SPEEDERS pull up to the GROUP. CAPTAIN PANAKA and
a DOZEN OR SO GUARDS and PILOT pile out and join the
: What is the situation?
CAPT. PANAKA : Almost everyone's in camps. A few hundred
police and guards have formed an underground movement.
I brought as many of the keaders as I could. The Federation
Army's also much larger than we thought, and much stronger.
Your Highness, this is a battle I do not think we can
PADME : The battle is a diversion. The Gungans must
draw theDroid Army away from the cities. We can enter
the city using the secret passages on the waterfall
side. Once we get to the main entrance, Captain Pnaka
will create a diversion, so that we can enter the palace
and capture the Viceroy. Without the Viceroy, they will
be lost and confused.
and OBI-WAN look on with interest.
: (Cont'd) What do you think, Master Jedi?
QUI-GON : The Viceroy will be well guarded.
CAPT. PANAKA : The difficulty's getting into the throne
room. Once we're inside, we shouldn't have a problem.
QUI-GON : There is a possibility with this diversion
many Gungans will be killed.
BOSS NASS : Wesa ready to do are-sa part.
JAR smiles a very worried and sheepish grin. ANAKIN
watches with interest, as does ARTOO.
: We have a plan which should immobilize the Droid Army.
We will send what pilots we have to knock out the Droid
control ship which is orbiting the planet. If we can
get past their rayshields, we can sever communication
and their droids will be helpless.
QUI-GON : A well-conceived plan. However, there's great
risk. The weapons on your fighters may not penetrate
the shields on the control ship.
OBI-WAN : And there's an even bigger danger. If the
Vicroy escapes, Your Highness, he will return with another
PADME : That is why we must not fail to get to the Viceroy.
Everything depends on it.
THEED - PALACE - THRONE ROOM - DAY
RUNE, DARTH MAUL, OOM-9, and a hologram of DARTH SIDIOUS
walk through the throne room.
SIDIOUS : ...she is more foolish than I thought.
NUTE : We are sending all available troops to meet this
army of hers assembling near the swamp. It appears to
be made up of primitives. We do not expect much resistance.
OOM-9 : I am increasing security at all Naboo detention
DARTH MAUL : I feel there is more to this, My Master.
The two Jedi may be using the Queen for their own purposes.
DARTH SIDIOUS : The Jedi cannot become involved. They
can only protect the Queen. Even Qui-Gon Jinn will not
break that conenant.... This will work to our advantage...
NUTE : I have your approval to proceed then, My Lord.
DARTH SIDIOUS : Proceed. Wipe them put...all of them.
NABOO SWAMP LAKE - DAY (FX)
is peaceful. SMALL CRITTERS drink out of a large swamp
lake. Suddenly there is a disturbance in the middle
of the lake. A rush of bubbles, then a GUNGAN SOLDIER
riding a KAADU emerges from the water, followed by SEVERAL
OTHERS. FROGS and OTHER LITTLE ANIMALS flee in all directions
as the GUNGAN ARMY marches through the swamp. The KAADU
shake themselves off as they exit the lake. When JAR
JAR's KAADU shakes off, JAR JAR falls off.
SOLDIERS on huge, lizard-like FAMBAAS with large shield
generators mounted on their backs follow the marching
WARRIORS. The GUNGAN ARMY heads out of the swamp and
onto the rolling grassy hills.
HUNDREDS OF GUNGAN WARRIORS march in lon lines toward
Federation tanks move up to a ridge and stop. In the
distance they see the GUNGAN ARMY marching toward them.
The GUNGAN GENERAL CEEL sees the tanks on the ridge
and orders a halt. The GUNGANS are spread out in a large
line. JAR JAR is nervous. GENERAL CEEL signals to the
CEEL : Energize the shields.
red ray shoots out of the generator and blasts into
a large dish on the back of a second FAAMBA and spreads
like an umbrella over the assembled WARRIORS.
THEED - CENTRAL PLAZA - DAY
followed by EIRTAE, OBI-WAN, QUI-GON, ANAKIN, and ARTOO,
stealthily makes her way toward the entrance to the
main hanger. They are followed by about TWENTY NABOO
GUARDS, PILOTS, and TROOPS. They stop, and PADME uses
a small red laser light to signal across the plaza to
CAPTAIN PANAKA, RABE and TWENTY OTHER ASSORTED NABOO
TROOPS. They signal back. QUI-GON leans over to ANAKIN.
: Once we get inside, Annie, you find a safe placeto
hide and stay there.
ANAKIN : Sure.
QUI-GON : And stay there!
TROOPS mill about the tank-filled plaza. At the far
end of the plaza, SEVERAL DROIDS begin to run and fire.
NABOO SOLDIERS begin to fire back at the BATTLE DROIDS.
As the ruckus erupts at one end of the plaza, PADME
and her TROOPS rush into the main hanger. CAPTAIN PANAKA
and HIS SOLDIERS continue to engage the DROIDS outside.
