Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

Audio problem: The aliens that populate the planet of Geonosis have an extremely peculiar method of speech - consisting of clicks and weird ringing sounds. However, despite the fact that they make up 99.9% of the crowd in the arena, the sound of the crowd cheering is human. (01:44:10)

Audio problem: When Anakin and Padme are talking after their meal together. When the camera is facing Anakin at one point he says "Believe me I wish that I could just wish away these feelings I have for you!" and then stops talking. When the camera switches to face Padme, if you watch closely, Anakin's mouth is still moving even though he isn't saying anything.

Audio problem: In the beginning of Obi-Wan's fight with Jango Fett, Obi-Wan's lightsaber is off as he dives out of the way to avoid being shot. When he turns it on again, the sound effect is missing. (00:58:35)

4

Audio problem: When Dooku is trying to bring down the ceiling on top of Yoda in the hangar scene, Yoda stops three rocks in midair with the force and then directs them to his left. One of these rocks hits the wall, breaks in two and also leaves a mark in the wall. Strangely that rock doesn't make any sound at all. (02:08:20)

Audio problem: After Anakin and Padmé watch Obi-Wan's message for help, Padmé says, "I'm going to help Obi-Wan," but the movement of her lips indicates that she's going to "save Obi-Wan".

2

Audio problem: When Amidala tells Anakin about her old boyfriend, she says, "I went in to public service.", but the last word doesn't match the movement of her lips. (00:46:20)

Audio problem: When Anakin is talking to Padmé by the fireplace, he says,"My heart is beating, hoping that that kiss will not become a scar", and stops talking, but his profile shows that his lips are still moving. (00:52:30)

Audio problem: When the droid army is marching into the arena we see a close up of C-3PO and hear the sound of a marching army but the droids are walking on sand, so the sound should be muffled in some way.

Revealing mistake: When Amidala and 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. [This appears to be fixed in rereleased versions]. (00:53:40)

More trivia for Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

Question: When Anakin and Padme get married, Anakin is wearing an outfit that is often seen on Jedi and is displaying a Jedi Padawan's hair braid. Do he and Padme not care that the man who performs the wedding is seeing him (as Jedi are not supposed to have relationships and marry)? Why not disguise him? It's a huge risk to let even one person see a Jedi getting married.

Answer: Agolerga, who officiated the wedding, would have known who both people were, especially Padme. Remember they were also keeping the marriage secret because of Padme's position as Senator. Assuming Agolerga was aware a Jedi can't marry, he may simply not care or agree with the rule. Also, as a holy man of Naboo, Anakin and Padme may have trusted him with their secret.
