Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

Synopsis: Ten years after the invasion of Naboo, the Galactic Republic is facing a Separatist movement and the former queen and now Senator Padmé Amidala travels to Coruscant to vote on a project to create an army to help the Jedi to protect the Republic. Upon arrival, she escapes from an attempt to kill her, and Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan Anakin Skywalker are assigned to protect her. They chase the shape-shifter Zam Wessell but she is killed by a poisoned dart before revealing who hired her. The Jedi Council assigns Obi-Wan Kenobi to discover who has tried to kill Amidala and Anakin to protect her in Naboo. Obi-Wan discovers that the dart is from the planet Kamino, and he heads to the remote planet. He finds an army of clones that has been under production for years for the Republic and that the bounty hunter Jango Fett was the matrix for the clones. Meanwhile Anakin and Amidala fall in love with each other, and he has nightmarish visions of his mother. They travel to his home planet, Tatoo

Senator, we're making

our final approach into Coruscant.

Very good, Lieutenant.

[ Droid Beeping ]

[ Grunts ]

We made it.

[ Man ]

I guess I was wrong.

There was no danger at all.


Milady, I'm so sorry.

I've failed you, Senator.


Milady, you're still

in danger here.

- I shouldn't have come back.

- This vote is very important.

You did your duty.

Cord did hers. Now, come.

Senator Amidala,


I don't know how much longer

I can hold off the vote, my friends.

More and more star systems

are joining the separatists.

- If they do break away--

- I will not let this Republic...

that has stood for a thousand years

be split in two.

My negotiations

will not fail.

If they do,you must realize

there aren't enoughJedi

to protect the Republic.

We're keepers of the peace,

not soldiers.

Master Yoda.

Do you think it will

really come to war?

Hmm, the dark side

clouds everything.

Impossible to see

the future is.

[ Speaking Huttese ]

The Loyalist Committee

has arrived, Your Honor.

- Good.

- [ Huttese ]

Send them in.

We will discuss

this matter later.

Senator Amidala,

your tragedy on the landing platform--


Seeing you alive

brings warm feelings to my heart.

Do you have any idea

who was behind this attack?

Our intelligence points to disgruntled

spice miners on the moons of Naboo.

I think that Count Dooku

was behind it.

He is a political idealist,

not a murderer.

You know, milady,

Count Dooku was once a Jedi.

He couldn't assassinate anyone.

It's not in his character.

But for certain,


in grave danger you are.


may I suggest...

the senator

be placed...

under the protection

of your graces.

Do you really think that's a wise

decision under these stressful times?

Chancellor, if I may comment,

I do not believe--

The situation

is that serious?

No, but I do, Senator.

I realize all too well

that additional security...

might be

disruptive for you...

but perhaps someone

you're familiar with.

An old friend,

like Master Kenobi.

That's possible.

He's just returned

from a border dispute on Ansion.

Do it for me, milady.


The thought

of losing you...

is unbearable.

I will have Obi-Wan

report to you immediately, milady.

[ Senator Amidala ]

Thank you, Master Windu.

You seem

a little on edge.

- Not at all.

- I haven't felt you this tense...

since we fell into

that nest of gundarks.

[ Scoffs ] You fell into

that nightmare, Master...

and I rescued you,


Oh... yes.

[ Laughing ]

[ Chuckles ]

You're sweating. Relax.

Take a deep breath.

I haven't seen her

in ten years, Master.

Obi? Obi!

Mesa so smilen

to seein yousa!

- Good to see you again,JarJar.

- Senator Padm.

Mesa palos here!

Lookie, lookie, Senator.

Desa Jedi arriven.

It's a great pleasure

to see you again, milady.

It has been far too long,

Master Kenobi.

Ani? My goodness,

you've grown.

So have you.

Grown more beautiful, I mean.

Well, f-for a senator,

I mean.

Ani, you'll always be that little boy

I knew on Tatooine.

Our presence here will be invisible,

milady, I can assure you.

I'm Captain Typho

of Her Majesty's security service.

Queen Jamillia has been informed

of your assignment.

I am grateful you are here,

Master Kenobi.

The situation is more dangerous

than the senator will admit.

I don't need more security.

I need answers.

I want to know

who's trying to kill me.

We are here to protect you, Senator,

not to start an investigation.

We will find out

who's trying to kill you, Padm.

- I promise you.

- We will not exceed our mandate...

my young Padawan learner.

I meant that in the interest

of protecting her, Master.

We will not go through

this exercise again, Anakin...

- and you will pay attention to my lead.

- Why?


Why else do you think we were assigned

to her if not to find the killer?

Protection is a job

for local security, notJedi.

It's overkill, Master.

Investigation is implied in our mandate.

We will do exactly

as the council has instructed.

And you will learn

your place, young one.

Perhaps with

merely your presence...

the mystery surrounding

this threat will be revealed.

Now, if you'll

excuse me...

I will retire.

I know I'll feel better

having you here.

I'll have an officer stationed

on every floor, and I'll be in

the control center downstairs.

Mesa busten wit happiness

seein yousa again, Ani.

She hardly even

recognized me,JarJar.

I've thought about her

every day since we parted, and...

she's forgotten me completely.

Shesa happy. Happier den

mesa seein her in a longo time.

You're focusing on the negative, Anakin.

Be mindful of your thoughts.

She was pleased to see us.

Now, let's check the security.

I hit the ship,

but they used a decoy.

We'll have to try something

more subtle this time, Zam.

My client is getting impatient.

Take these.

Be careful.

They're very poisonous.

Zam, there can be

no mistakes this time.

Captain Typho has

more than enough men downstairs.

No assassin would try that way.

- Any activity up here?

- Quiet as a tomb.

I don't like just waiting here

for something to happen to her.

- [ Beeping ]

- What's going on?

Ah, she covered

the cameras.

I don't think

she liked me watching her.

What is she thinking?

She programmed R2

to warn us if there is an intruder.

[ Obi-Wan ] There are many

other ways to kill a senator.
