Concept Art and Trivia


In Anakin’s quarters, there’s a poster celebrating the sport of Podracing that includes an image of Sebulba and Ben Quadinaros, old competitors from the Podrace seen in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.


Anakin also keeps a model starship (which is a prototype Jedi interceptor) in his room, and absentmindedly plays with it, much like Luke Skywalker does with his T-16 model a generation later.


Originally, the scene of the medical droid producing a holographic message of Dooku to Clovis was more complicated: it was a holographic droid, much like PROXY from Star Wars: The Force Unleashed that was to deliver the message, first by appearing as a medical droid, and then becoming a full-body hologram of Count Dooku.


Though the script and end credits identify Senator Zinn Paulness as speaking during Clovis’ attempt to secure a nomination from the Senate, it is actually Senator Mot-Not Rab who says “How can we trust you?”
