Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

The first scene in which Obi-Wan and Anakin appear was filmed after principal photography had finished. Ewan McGregor had shaven off his beard, so he had to wear a fake one.

When Anakin is walking around the bar in Coruscant looking for the changeling, he passes Ahmed Best, the voice of Jar Jar Binks, and we also see Anthony Daniels, who plays C3-P0. Katie Lucas (George Lucas' daughter) is also visible.

In one of the trivia books about the movie, there is a page where the different beverages sold at Dex's Diner are illustrated. One of the substances is labelled 'Alludium PU-36.' Alludium PU-36 is the 'explosive space modulator' that Marvin the Martian attempted to use to blow up the earth in the Warner Brothers Bugs Bunny cartoon.

After the fight scene between Obi-Wan and Jango Fett at Kamino, as Jango runs up the walkway into his ship, the door closes from above and knocks Jango in the head as he enters. Deliberately done - a little nod to the Storm trooper in Star Wars. While there's no proof (yet) that all storm troopers are clones (films are the only canon, remember), this seems to suggest that a few years down the line at least some are, and have inherited their "father's" occasional clumsiness. Confirmed in the commentary.

The vehicle that Anakin steals for the Coruscant chase scene has deer whistles on it, right behind Anakin and Obi-Wan's heads. For those that don't know what deer whistles are, they are small whistles that mount on the bumper of your car and make a high-pitched noise (too high for human ears but perfect for animals) to scare deer off the highways.

The tower where Dooku meets Sidious at the end of the movie is obviously incomplete (unfinished parts can be seen). It also looks very much like the Emperor's Citadel, briefly seen in the cutscenes of the Tie Fighter computer game (then, completed).

Jett Lucas (the son of George Lucas) appears as a young jedi padawan, and Katie Lucas (George's daughter) appears as a twilek in the Coruscant bar.

Amidala seem to buy her suitcases on earth. I've owned the same kind of suitcase set used in the flick. They're from a company called "Atlantic". The only way they've been modified for the film is the funky padding inside. [If I remember right, it's this case she's using].

When Anakin tells Padme that he killed all the Tuskin Raiders, (the "I killed them, I killed them all..." speech) it is an almost word for word copy of Ralph Macchio's speech in 1983's "The Outsiders".

When Zam Wessel is killed by Jango Fett, her last words are in Huttese. What she says translates to "Bounty hunter slimeball."

In the original script, Jango Fett appeared in the Geonosian meeting room with Count Dooku and the other leading Separatists (that Obi-Wan is looking down into), but was removed from the final cut because the filmmakers didn't want to immediately give away that Dooku was the villain.

When Obi-Wan Kenobi meets with Dexter Jettster, and they hug, Obi-Wan was computer generated from the neck down.

Samuel L. Jackson is reported to have "B.M.F." engraved into the handle of his lightsaber. B.M.F. is short for "Bad Mother F***er" and was stitched on the wallet of Jackson's character, Jules, in "Pulp Fiction."

The place where Padmé and Anakin walk on Naboo is the Plaza the Espana of Sevilla in Spain (you can see the same place in Lawrence of Arabia).

According to the DVD commentary, Anakin's shadow on Tatooine (before he leaves the Lars' to find Shmi) was not digitally altered to resemble Darth Vader's helmet. It was pure coincidence.

C-3PO was originally to have made his first appearance still in skeletal form. In post-production, Star Wars creator George Lucas decided to have C-3PO be complete throughout the film.

In the pursuit scene on Coruscant, when the two speeders are diving, you can see a X-Wing pursued by 3 TIE fighters in the ground's traffic.

The red aiming screen of Zam Wessel's binoculars is the same kind as that seen on the Millenium Falcon when the TIE fighters attack it after the escape from the Death Star in Episode IV.

The yellow speeder which Anakin takes to pursue Zam is inspired from the yellow Ford coupé 1932 of American Graffiti, another George Lucas movie.

When Amidala & Anakin are eating and he cuts her a piece of the fruit and "floats" it back to her, the bite appears in the fruit a split second before she actually eats it.
