The large arch seen as part of the Teth monastery is a design by Ralph McQuarrie that first appeared in the 1995 book "The Illustrated Star Wars Universe". In that book, it was originally pictured as part of Jabba the Hutt's palace on Tatooine. It also appears on the planet Jakku in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). See more »
In the first moments of the Battle of Cristophsis scene, as Anakin, Obi-Wan, and the Clones are rushing to the defenses, one clone is firing repeatedly, seemingly at the approaching battle droids. However, as the camera switches to the separatist column, no blaster bolts can be seen, and it is unlikely that the droids are in range anyway. See more »
If you liked Attack of the Cl...no wait...if you liked Caravan of Courage...
The film opens without the traditional scrolling prologue and is replaced by a transatlantic voice that would have been at home in a 1980's Saturday morning cartoon. From here, we are thrown into episode 2.5 of the Star War saga.
Without giving too much away about the plot: the acting and characters are wooden and two dimensional, even for a kids film (or for that matter, a recent Star Wars film). The dynamic between Anakin Skywalker and his new sidekick, will grate on the nerves of anyone over the age of 8 years old. The stiff animation makes everyone come across as a cross between an action figure and a Thunderbird. For a theatrically released film, it's "shot" (if you can say that about an animated film) in an almost camera-nailed-to-the-ground fashion. Compared to recent Pixar efforts, it looks about as cinematic as a midday tele-movie. The saving grace of this film are the fight scenes, which somewhat make up for the film failings everywhere else.
As a spin off from the Star Wars franchise, it's OK at best. As a kids film, there's much better. As a pilot episode to the upcoming cartoon series, it's watchable and if compared to a direct to DVD Disney sequel, it's decent.
