Star Wars Episode 2 Attack of the Clones – Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padme, while Obi-Wan investigates an assassination attempt on the Senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi. Throughout this Episode, you really see the struggles that Padme and Anakin faced, falling in love with each other and keeping it a secret!
Star Wars Episode 2 Attack of the Clones starts off by Senator Amidala travelling back to Coruscant, because the Senate needs her vote on a matter. The Senator had a decoy, she went undercover so to say, and had one of her bodyguards dress like her. Well as they walked off the ship their was an attack and their ship blew up.
The Senator and the head of her security survived, but the other seven people had all died. Senator Amidala then addressed the Senate, and shared with them how there was an attack on her life. “Vote down this security measure, which is nothing less than a declaration of war” Senator Amidala said! The Supreme Chancellor then ruled that the matter be voted upon the next day.
The Supreme Chancellor then ordered Senator Amidala increase her security detail for her protection, and asked the Jedi Council if Obi-Wan would be suitable for this task, and the council agreed, that was a good idea to ensure the safety of Senator Amidala. Anakin was showing signs of anxiety as he was nervous to see the Senator.
It had been ten years since Anakin had last seen Padme! After the meet and greet, Padme went to lay down and get some rest. While Anakin and Obi-Wan were talking, they sensed something was wrong in Padme’s room and rushed in, there were two poisonous centipede’s that were on their way to bite or sting Padme and kill her.
A bounty hunter called Jango Fett is the one behind the assassination attempts on Padme. Jango hired Zam Wessel to kill the Senator for him, and Zam got the Centipedes from Jango to carry out the assassination. Zam Wessel had a drone that flew outside Padme’s window and the centipedes were able to get into her room that way.
So Obi-Wan Kenobi leaps out of the window and barely grabs the droid and holds on for dear life, while Anakin went to get a speeder to assist him. The drone was back in range of Zam and she was locking on to Obi-Wan and fires, she hit the drone, which made Obi-Wan fall off of the droid and he was falling to his death.
Anakin swoops in and saves Obi-Wan and they begin to follow Zam, who had gotten back into her cruiser ship and was trying to get away from the Jedi. Anakin and Obi-Wan are chasing Zam around other air crafts and buildings, and Zam takes a sudden left into a tunnel and began to follow the traffic. Anakin insisted on going a different way as he said it was a short cut.
All of sudden Anakin stops the cruiser, and Obi-Wan began telling him that he had lost Zam and they weren’t going to find her now. Out of no where, Anakin just rolls over his side of the cruiser and begins to fall to his death. Boom he caught on to Zam Wessel’s cruiser and was on the top of it, Anakin quickly gets his light saber out and stabs it into the cab of the cruiser to make a hole for him to get his arm in, to force Zam to land.
Zam pulled her gun out and was trying to shoot Anakin, and Anakin ended up making Zam shoot the control board on her cruiser, which made them crash land. Zam in fear for her life, ran into a bar to try to hide from the Jedi that were trying to capture her. Anakin and Obi-Wan followed Zam into the bar and they split up, Obi-Wan went to the bar and ordered a drink, while Anakin walked around and looked for Zam.
Zam noticed Obi-Wan at the bar and was creeping up behind him with her gun in hand, as she got closer to Obi-Wan and was getting ready to shoot, Obi-Wan quickly turned around, and with his lightsaber, cut off Zam’s arm. Anakin and Obi-Wan then helped Zam walk outside where they began to question her. Why were you trying to kill Senator Amidala? Who hired you?
As Zam began to tell the Jedi who she was working for, and why she was trying to kill the Senator, she was suddenly shot with a toxic dart in the neck. It killed her instantly and, on a nearby rooftop, Jango Fett stood, and flew away quickly using his jet pack. Anakin and Obi-Wan go n front of the Jedi Council to give them the news about this bounty hunter, Yoda assigns Obi-Wan to tracking down this bounty hunter, and Anakin was to stay at the Senator’s protection and escort her back to Naboo.
Anakin had to ask the Supreme Chancellor to ask Senator Amidala to take the Jedi Councils advice, and return to her home planet, Naboo. Senator Amidala appoints Jar Jar Binks to represent her in the Senate until she returned. Senator Amidala was strongly against leaving and returning to her home planet, as she was fighting to end a war that was soon to begin. Anakin and Senator Amidala traveled as refugees for safety precautions.
So, Obi-Wan tries to have the toxic dart analyzed in the analysis archives, and they had no records of that particular dart, who made it or where it came from. He then remembered an old friend that may be able to identify this dart, Dex. Dex tells Obi-Wan that the dart is a Kamino Sabre Dart. He then tells Obi-Wan that the planet Kamino is located beyond the outer rim, and the Kaminoians are cloners.
Obi-Wan searches for this, Kamino planet in the archives and cant seem to be able to find it. He suspects the archives are incomplete, but it was insisted that if the archives don’t show it, it doesn’t exist. Obi-Wan asks Master Yoda his opinion on not being able to see Kamino in the archives, the two of them, with the help of the younglings, that this planet may have been deleted from the archives by another Jedi.
Made Windu, one of the Master Jedi on the Jedi Council, suggested that Obi-Wan go and see if this planet does exist, and find out what’s going on, and so he did. Anakin and Padme are getting to know each other more, since they have grown and matured over the ten years apart. The love story is starting to unfold between them, while staying on Naboo.
Anakin has a bad dream about his mother, and fears that she is in trouble, so him and Padme went to Tatooine to check on Anakin’s mother. Obi-Wan meets the Prime Minister of Kamino and learns that they have created a clone army for the Republic, and a Jedi by the name of Tyrannus was the one that had given this order! Come to find out, the Bounty Hunter Obi-Wan was looking for, resides on Kamino.
Obi-Wan met Jango Fett and his son Boba. When Obi-Wan went to report to the Jedi Council about his findings and what he learned, Jango Fett had instructed his son to pack his things, as they were leaving! Master Yoda gives the order to bring in the bounty hunter for questioning, and when Obi-Wan went to apprehend the fugitive, Obi-Wan and Jango started fighting and Jango managed to escape, but not before Obi-Wan throws a tracker onto Jango’s ship.
Anakin and Padme arrive on Tatooine, and they go straight to Watto, to find Anakin’s mother. Watto tells him that he sold his mother to a man named Cleet Larz, who ended up freeing her and marrying her. Anakin asks where do they live now? Watto then got the address so to say, and gave it to Anakin. Anakin and Padme traveled to see if Annie’s mother was okay.
When they arrived, they met Owen Larz and his girlfriend first, then Cleet came out and said that he thinks they should go inside and talk. Cleet explained that just before dawn one day, a group of Tusken Raiders had taken kin’s mother as she was picking mushrooms. Four people went out after Shmi, and only three returned. Cleet lost his leg while out searching, so he is unable to ride the speeder to continue looking.
Anakin goes on and searches for his mother! He found the suspected camp where Shmi, if still alive, might be. This is a very well guarded camp, tusken raiders and their dog looking creatures. Anakin found his mother, tied up and very fragile. She looks as if she was beaten and starved, she murmers that she is complete, and tries to tell Anakin she loves him before dying in Anakin’s arms.
Anakin, filled and fueled by rage, now slaughters the entire camp for essentially killing his mother. Yoda can sense a disturbance in the force, “pain, suffering, death I feel, something terrible has happened, young Skywalker is in pain, terrible pain!” Obi-Wan is still following Jango Fett, tying to pursue him and find out why and who was behind the assassination plot against Senator Amidala, Obi-Wan follows Jango to a planet called Geonosis.
Obi-Wan discovers a massive droid army being built by the Viceroy, and Count Dooku! He also finds out that Dooku is trying to get the Viceroy to sign a treaty against the Republic, and the Viceroy is the one behind the assassination plot against Senator Amidala. Obi-Wan returned to his ship to send a transmission of his report to the Jedi Council however, when Obi-Wan was following the bounty hunter, the bounty hunter realized he was being followed and with some evasive maneuvers, was in turn trying to end Obi-Wans journey.
Jango Fett did hit Obi-Wans ship and knocked out his ability to reach the Jedi Council with his transmission, so he locates Anakin and sends it to him and tells him to forward it to the Jedi Council. Anakin has returned to his mothers husbands house, with his mother, and they buried her and said how much they missed and loved her. This was interrupted by R2-D2 and C-3PO, they had the urgent messag from Obi-Wan Kenobi!
Anakin and Padme returned to their ship to see what Obi-Wan had to say, Obi-Wans message was that he discovered who was behind the assassination plot to kill the Senator, he alerted the Jedi Council of the massive droid army he seen being built, but Obi-Wan was captured before he could finish his transmission. The Jedi Council tells Anakin to protect the Senator at all costs, that is his only priority, Padme told Anakin that she was worried about Obi-Wan and she was going to help him, and that Anakin would have to go with her to protect her.
Count Dooku tries to get Obi-Wan to join him and tells him about the corruption in the Senate. Dooku also says that the Senate is under the control of a Sith Lord, Dath Sidious! Obi-Wan doesn’t believe him at all, he said the Jedi would have known, Dooku said the Sith has clouded their judgment. Jar Jar Binks, standing in for Senator Amidala, proposes to the Senate that they give immediate control to the Supreme Chancellor, and as his first act, he will create a grand army to fight the Federation!
Master Jedi Mace Windu tells Master Yoda that he will take what clones they have, to go help Obi-Wan on Geonosis, and Yoda says that he will travel to Camino, to gather the rest of the troops, and will meet them on Geonosis! Trying to find and help Obi-Wan, Anakin and Padme get themselves caught and captured too! “A lot of help you are now” Obi-Wan says as they bring out Anakin and Padme, to chain them to the poles, similar to what Obi-Wan is now chained to as well.
The Geonosians have these three incredible beasts, that will come out and eat the prisoners that are chained to columns that Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Padme are chained to. Before they brought out Anakin and Padme to chain them to the columns, Padme told Anakin that she has been dying a little each day since he came back into her life, she told Anakin that she loved him. The three beasts, one looks like a mantis of some sort, the other is a tiger-ish animal with very sharp claws and teeth, and the third was like a bull type of animal.
Obi-Wan gets the mantis to hit his chain and free him from being pinned to one place. Padme had climbed to the top of her column and picked the lock to her handcuffs that she had on. The cat like creature jumped and climbed to the top enough to scratch Padme on her back, she then used her chain and jumped off and kicked the creature that had scratched her, and it fell to the ground!
Anakin used the force and began riding his creature around, he helped Padme and used his beast to kill the creature that was attacking Padme. Obi-Wan was able to get away from the mantis creature! Oh No! Here come the droids and they surround Anakin, Padme, and Obi-Wan, but not for long, because Mace Windu and the rest of the Jedi have come to save the day.
Mace Windu puts his lightsaber to the neck of Jango Fett, and demands Dooku to end this. Dooku had back up droids that came to his rescue, which forced Mace to jump down from where they were. Now the Jedi in the arena, are fully surrounded by droids, when suddenly, out of know where, fighter ships carrying clone fighters come swooping in, shooting the droids with the fighter ships, laying cover fire so that all the Jedi can safely get on board one of the ships so they can get out of there!
Such a huge battle is going on now, droids versus clones, missiles blowing up droid carriers! Federation Command Centers are being destroyed, the clone army was so strong they made the droids retreat. Anakin and Obi-Wan follow Dooku to put an end to his scheme. Dooku ends up cutting Anakin’s left arm off, and wounded Obi-Wan as well.
Master Yoda stepped in and challenged Dooku, after fighting for a few minutes, Dooku used his powers and created a diversion so that he could escape before Yoda killed him. When they all return to the Jedi Council, Obi-Wan says to Master Yoda and Mace Windu that it would not have been an easy victory without the help of the clones. Master Yoda replied, this was no victory, the shrod of the dark side has fallen, the beginning of the clone wars, this is!
Anakin went back to Naboo with Padme, where they had a very beautiful and private wedding! The two did what was forbidden, but their love was strong!
