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.
Question: I've been told that when Obi-Wan and Anakin walk into the bar and Obi-Wan says the line "Anakin, why do I get the feeling that you're going to be the death of me?", Ewan McGregor asked George Lucas if he could say that line so the fans would get the Episode 4 reference or something like that, and also that he asked Lucas if he could do the Jedi mind trick which he demonstrates on the 'death sticks' seller. Could anyone confirm if either of these statements are true, because I don't want to submit them as trivia if they're nothing but rumours.Heather Benton
Question: After the clones were discovered, Palpatine used the Separatist-Republic tension as a excuse to take control of them, but was the Separatist movement real? He could've faked it from the beginning just to take the clones out himself knowing that he would have power because of the senate. Or was the movement real at first, and he later used it to take control of the clones? The attempt on Padmé's life (which caused the Kamino reveal) besides being the price that the Viceroy requested to enter the Separatists I suppose, was to provoke the war, what do they achieve then, if they didn't know the clones would be discovered?ricardoglez22
Question: When Dooku slices off Anakin's arm in the hangar, why does he later receive a cybernetic replacement rather than just reattaching it? Amputated parts of the human body can survive up to several hours (even days, if so), so the troopers would have plenty of time to transport Anakin to a medical bay. Sure cybernetics are physically stronger than the normal parts of the human body, but human flesh gives the Jedi more potential, so why not just "reattach" it?
Question: Why does Obi-Wan believe that Anakin (the chosen one) is not ready for an assignment on his own even though he has been his apprentice for the last 10 years? Also, why does Obi-Wan not let Anakin face the trials to become a Jedi Knight even though again he has been his apprentice for the last 10 years?THE GAMER NEXT DOOR
Question: Does anybody know why Mace Windu is the head of the Jedi council? It just seems as though there are or were better or older Jedi who surely would have rose to become head Jedi. I thought at first that he may have a high Midi-chlorian count, but it seems his is quite normal by Jedi standards. No wonder Count Dooku left, he waited until he was seventy and still didn't become head of the council!
Question: I have often wondered about the Jedi rule forbidding marriage. (Yes, I know that there are rare exceptions, but in general, no marriage so you have no emotional attachments to get between you and your duty as a Jedi.) It is shown over the Star Wars saga as a whole, that sensitivity to the Force is, at least in part, genetic. Anakin and all his decedents are strong with the Force. When Qui Gon first sees that young Anakin is strong with the force, he asks, "Who is his father?" Therefore, wouldn't forbidding Jedi to have families selectively breed out sensitivity to the Force? Such a rule would seem to doom the Jedi to a fate similar to that of the American Shakers, who forbid all sex, even in marriage. How could the Jedi continue for thousands of years, if they leave no progeny?
Question: Why is is Yoda is always seen stooped and hobbling around everywhere with a walking stick - but when it comes to fighting, with his duel against Count Dooku at the end of this movie for example - he all of a sudden practically becomes a ninja; jumping, spinning and battling with his lightsabre so spectacularly?
Question: Dooku mentions that his and Obi-wan's paths have never crossed before. Does he mean that they have never met at all, or just not since Dooku left the order? Obi-wan was 20-something years old in Episode I, when Dooku was still a Jedi, so could they really have never met each other in that many years (especially with the connection of Dooku being Obi-wan's master's master?)
Question: This goes along with the question someone submitted about Jedi reproducing. Isn't it also very likely that in a whole galaxy, there would be at least a few people born every year who are Force-sensitive, but aren't ever discovered by the Jedi? Couldn't the trait sometimes be passed down for a couple of generations before someone in the family is discovered by the Jedi? For example, it seems unlikely that either of Dooku's parents or Palpatine's parents were Jedi, since they both came from wealthy backgrounds.
Question: Why didn't the Jedi put two and two together and realise that the bounty hunter that was used to make all the clones was the same bounty hunter that was working for Dooku and trying to kill Padme? Ok, so maybe it wouldn't have been enough information to unravel the entire Sith plot, but surely it would have warranted investigating.
Question: What precisely was Jango Fett's role in the attempts on Padmé's life? It's established later that Viceroy Gunray ordered the assassination, but just before Zam Wessell was killed she said she was taking orders from a bounty hunter, presumably Jango Fett (which also explains why Zam was killed with a Kaminoan weapon). How could Jango and the Viceroy BOTH have been behind the assassination attempts? I wasn't aware that they were connected in any way (besides the fact that they were both loyal to the Separatist cause). For that matter, what does the Viceroy have to gain from Padmé's death anyway? This has never made sense to me
Question: What is the weakness of the Jedi that Mace and Yoda talk about? I'm thinking that it has something to do with the fact that they cannot sense Palpatine as the Sith Lord, despite him being in the same room as them, and in episode III when Palpatine tells Yoda, "Your arrogance has blinded you."
Question: We learn that the Clone army was secretly being created, raised and trained on Kamino, without the Jedi's knowledge. What about all the Republican starships, cruisers and walkers we see at the end of the movie? Where were they built, and how did Sidious and Dooku manage to keep that a secret as well?Matty Blast
Question: During the fight scene with Dooku, Obi-Wan is knocked down and Anakin stops Dooku from delivering the fatal blow. My question is this: when Obi-Wan picks up his lightsaber and throws it to Anakin, Dooku is standing right over him, why not just reach up and stab Dooku and end it all right there? Is there any reason for him not to do this?
Question: Forgive me, but I was puzzled by Jango's jetting himself into the fray during the Battle of Geonosis and taking on Mace Windu. It seems inspired by (and/or justifying - depending on how you look at it) his son Boba's jetting onto the skiff during Return of the Jedi. However, in both cases, with all the laser fire, light sabers, and dangerous creatures involved, it seems like a really stupid idea and a bit out of character. Their nature doesn't seem to lean towards such an impulsive move. In Jango's case, Count Dooku didn't order Jango to attack (verbally or even in gesture). Previously he had served as guarding Dooku, which he abandons by going after Mace. While it could be argued that Jango marks Mace simply because he might resent having a sword against his throat, I don't see why he would launch himself so close to the battle. In his battle with Obi-wan, he didn't get really close until the saber was knocked out. It would've made more sense if he hung back and launched something from a distance. The only other reason for this sequence is to conveniently have Jango out of the picture when the clones arrive. (And to start off Boba)
Question: Anyone know why the clone army is so small? I think the Kamino-guy says there are 200,000 ready and a million more on the way. China's army is almost twice that size. For a galactic war, troop counts in the billions would be necessary. And just one of those droid factories could probably pump out hundreds of thousands in a week.
Question: In Star Wars: A New Hope, Obi-Wan tells Luke that he and Anakin Skywalker were very good friends, as well as teacher and student. Now, lack of actor chemistry aside, in this movie, Obi-Wan and Anakin are still very firmly in the role of Master-Padawan, as it should be, and therefore rather formal with each other. My question is, are they speeding up the timeline of how things happen in this movie? It doesn't seem like they're allowing enough time for things to occur as we supposed they ought by the time the first movie begins. It's hard to believe this Obi Wan and Anakin became good friends- it seems they barely tolerate each other.
Question: I've seen the full-screen version of the film several times on television now, and I'm wondering why the very last shot before the closing credits shows the wide-screen shot compressed into the full-screen viewing area (making everyone look tall and skinny). Is it because all five characters wouldn't be able to fit, or is it because the closing credits are about to be shown?Matty Blast
Question: Is it possible for a 10-year-old kid with straight hair (Episode I) to develop a natural curl within the next 8-10 years (Episode II)? I can understand Anakin now having a darker hair color because he no longer lives on Tattoine (where the two suns were constantly lightening it), but where could the curl have come from?Matty Blast
Question: When Obi-Wan is being given a tour of the cloning facility, the creature says to him, "They're completely obedient" (or something akin). Right when she says that, we see a closeup of one clone holding a knife and fork. This clone, instead of eating politely like all the others, looks left and right and has a mean look on his face. Is there any significance to this shot? Why would they show a closeup of one clone appearing to contradict what the female is saying about the clones?
