Star Wars: Episode II - The Attack of the Clones (2002) Poster

Alternate Versions

UK version was cut by the distributor to secure a PG rating. About 1 second of footage was excised, removing a head butt in the fight scene between Obi-Wan and Jango Fett.
A scene where Anakin and Padme pay a visit to her family's home was filmed, but ultimately cut from the film. The scene featured Padme's father (played by Graeme Blundell), mother (played by Trisha Noble), and sister (played by Claudia Karvan).
Eight deleted scenes are included on the DVD:
  • Padmé addresses the Senate after the first attempt on her life, and speaks out against the creation of an army for the Republic.


  • Obi-Wan brings the toxic dart to the Jedi Temple analysis room for examination.


  • Before he departs for Kamino, Obi-Wan has a conversation with Mace, leading to his Jedi Starfighter on a landing platform. Some of the dialogue was used in the scene in the Jedi Temple with Obi-Wan, Mace and Yoda.


  • An extended version of Anakin and Padmé's arrival on Naboo.


  • Padmé brings Anakin to her house and introduces him to her family. Padmé's family senses that she is attracted to Anakin, but she denies it.


  • A scene in Padmé's bedroom in which she and Anakin look at pictures of her past acheivements.


  • After Anakin and Padmé are captured in the droid factory, Count Dooku interrogates Padmé.


  • After the interrogation scene, Anakin and Padmé are put on trial by the Geonosians, and are sentenced to death.


The Digital Theatrical Version (and DVD/VHS/Blu-ray release, which was based on this master) features several small additions to the standard (70mm/35mm) theatrical version of the film:
  • In the Lars Homestead, after Anakin has confessed his slaughter of the Tuskens and slumped to the floor, Padmé states, "To be angry is to be human," and Anakin responds, "I'm a Jedi! I know I'm better than this!"


  • Before Jango Fett is killed by Mace Windu, the sparks coming out of his damaged jetpack are much more visible.


  • After falling from the gunship and eventually awakening, Padmé replies to the Clonetrooper's question of concern with a painfilled "Uh-huh" instead of "Yes."


  • During the wedding scene, Padmé taking Anakin's mechanical hand has been inserted instead of a shot of Anakin's false arm and a pan up.


The film was released on IMAX theaters on 1 November 2002. The reformatted IMAX version was approx. 20 minutes shorter than the theatrical release. These are some of the scenes that has been cut from the IMAX version:
  • A long scene in Palpatine's office involving Yoda and Amidala. Palpatine suggests Kenobi and Anikin as bodyguards.


  • Jar Jar greeting the Jedi pair as they enter Amidala's quarters.


  • Kenobi talking to the Jedi head librarian.


  • The hilltop scene on Naboo where Anakin rides a grazing animal and Amidala and Anakin talk about political science.


  • Mace Windu and Yoda discuss whether they should reveal that the Force is no longer as easy to use.


  • The scene in which Yoda says that while Anakin is somewhat arrogant, that is an increasingly common failing among Jedi.


  • Owen Lars greeting Anakin and Amidala at the farm.


  • The confrontation between Count Dooku and Kenobi is shorter.


  • Jar Jar being set up by Palpatine to get the Senate hand more power to him.


  • Part of the scene where Padme sees Anakin for the first time in 10 years. The cut goes directly from the elevator to ObiWan discussing security.


  • Part of the scene where Anakin and Padme leave Coruscant has been trimmed


  • The scene where Anakin and Padme meet with the Queen has been eliminated


  • Scenes with Anakin and Padme on Naboo have been trimmed, with the picnic scene eliminated completely.


  • When Obi Wan was captured and met with Dooku, after the line "I'll never join you" it cuts directly to the Senate floor without Dooku responding "It may be difficult to secure your release".
