Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padmé Amidala, while Obi-Wan Kenobi investigates an assassination attempt on the senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.
Ten years after the invasion of Naboo, the Galactic Republic is facing a Separatist movement and the former queen and now Senator Padmé Amidala travels to Coruscant to vote on a project to create an army to help the Jedi to protect the Republic. Upon arrival, she escapes from an attempt to kill her, and Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan Anakin Skywalker are assigned to protect her. They chase the shape-shifter Zam Wessell but she is killed by a poisoned dart before revealing who hired her. The Jedi Council assigns Obi-Wan Kenobi to discover who has tried to kill Amidala and Anakin to protect her in Naboo. Obi-Wan discovers that the dart is from the planet Kamino, and he heads to the remote planet. He finds an army of clones that has been under production for years for the Republic and that the bounty hunter Jango Fett was the matrix for the clones.

Originally, Jango Fett was present in the Separatist meeting scene that Obi-Wan witnesses, standing behind Count Dooku. Actor Temuera Morrison was digitally erased from the scene to keep his allegiance with Dooku uncertain at this point in the story. See more »
As Anakin chases Zam through the crowd, the same shot of him passing by a column (he shoulders by it as he passes) is played twice. See more »
The Digital Theatrical Version (and DVD/VHS/Blu-ray release, which was based on this master) features several small additions to the standard (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 truth is the first time I had watched the movie I wasn't impressed. After rewatches over the years I realised this movie gets so much hate that it didn't deserve. Especially if you compare it to the new movies (episodes 7, 8,9) it is far better in script, character development and battles. Anakin is awesome in this movie and makes you feel totally familiar with yourself the way he acts following your heart instead of cold rules.
