Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones

The story of Anakin Skywalker continues in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones, as the young Jedi faces his most difficult challenge yet: choosing between his duty and forbidden love.

Meanwhile, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi embarks on a mission to uncover the truth behind assassination attempts on Senator Padmé Amidala, and the mysterious Separatist leader Count Dooku amasses a huge droid army to strike against the Republic. Paths collide, innocence is lost, and ultimately, the Clone Wars begin.

Episode II was the first major motion picture to be shot digitally, utilizing Sony HDW-F900 high-definition video cameras and Fujinon lenses.

Digital filmmaking allowed George Lucas a new kind of creative freedom: The entire droid factory action sequence was created well after principal photography was finished.

Attack of the Clones ' CG Yoda purposefully reproduces the imperfections of puppet Yoda, including his shaking ears.

Attack of the Clones pioneered the use of digital doubles, or CG stuntmen, from clones in battle to Obi-Wan’s "rumble in the rain" with Jango Fett.

The Geonosian arena is one of several enormous models created for the film. The final structure stood 10 feet tall and was 15 feet in diameter.
