When Ahsoka is addressing the clones in the hanger bay a pink droid is standing next to R2-D2. This droid's name is R2-KT and was included as a way to honor the work of the 501st Legion (an international group of Star Wars costumers who perform countless hours of volunteer work for many charities). The droid was created in the memory of Katie Johnson (daughter of the 501st Legion's founder Albin Johnson) who died of cancer at the young age of 7. Some of the costumer's built a pink R2 (dubbed R2-KT) for Katie to provide her comfort in the last days of her life. This was to reflect the scene in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) when R2-D2 watches over Padme while she slept at night. 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 »

Ok, stick-tinnies, you're going back to Dooku in pieces.

My 14 year old son passed on this, so I went by myself. I should have heeded his warning, "Dad, it IS a kid's movie." It is in fact.
But desirous of a Star Wars fix, I had to go.
And I am sorry I did. What a waste of time! I probably would have gotten more out of playing Battlefront II on my Xbox. Replaying Knights of the Old Republic would definitely have been better.
There wasn't really a story here, and what story there was pretty much an affront to any decent writing in any of the novels or comics in the last 30 years. There are many fan movies that are a whole heck of a lot better. Many fine things have been said that lay out the failings of this movie, so there's no need to repeat them. Most of the characters are as much cardboard as the vaunted breakthrough animation techniques. That's enough to tank any movie.
Couldn't we have had a movie that didn't pander to five year olds? This thing should have come with a Warning. "Warning! Watching this fetid pile of ripe manure, will cause you to develop a severe allergic reaction toward the Star Wars franchise."
