Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



Rebel planets try to leave the Republic, risking its political stability. At the same time, someone tries to assassinate Queen Amidala on Coruscant. Obi-Wan and Anakin are assigned to her security. After one attempt, Obi-Wan finds a lead to a planet that doesn't show in the Jedi archives' maps. Finding its location by approximation, he goes there and learns that someone unknown had ordered 10 years before an army of clones for the Republic. The model for the clones is Jango Fett, a bounty hunter, that Obi-Wan follows secretely to planet Geonosis. Meanwhile, Anakin takes Amidala back to Naboo where she would be in less danger. But Anakin keeps dreaming about his mother being in danger, and he and Padme leave for Tatooine. There he finds that his mother was sold to Cliegg Lars who soon after married her. She had been taken a month ago by Tusken raiders, and Anakine goes and rescues her after slaughtering the Tuskens. On Geonosi, Obi-Wan discovers that Jango works for the mysterious Count Dooku and the separatists, made of, among other, the Trade Federation (whose leader wanted Amidala dead as a revenge for his defeat in the previous episode). He sends a message to the Jedi Council, and Anakin and Padme arrive first. On Geonosis, the separatists are building an army of droids. Obi-Wan, Anakin and Padme are taken prisoner, but manage to escape during their public execution thanks to the Jedis who brought with them the clones' army. Palpatine is given the full powers by the Senate. After the battler, Dooku manages to escape and meats his master, Darth Sidious. The Clone Wars have just begun. In the end, Anakin and Padme get married.
