According to an internet rumor at the time, the original opening had Padmé's spacecraft exploding via Jango Fett's hand-held detonator before landing. This was altered, as it was uncomfortably similar to a reported terrorist attack to a commuter train. Portions of the opening scenes were re-filmed, that now featured the ship landing and the reason for the detonation appearing vague. Steve John Shepherd was cast as the Naboo Lieutenant, and Mike Savva returned as the accompanying Naboo Officer, having played a Naboo Guard in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999).

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.
This episode of the Star wars saga was criticized by some when it came out for having wooden dialogue and too much digital landscaping to be any good. I wasn't overly impressed with it myself, but having seen all 6 films now, AOTC is actually a very important and well done section of the overall series.
Lucas has said time and again that this movies are meant to be seen as one long film, not to be taken as 6 individual movies. This particular installment features so much that affects every other episode. The discovery of the clones, the immaturity and arrogance of Annakin, the beginning of the clone wars. All of these events happen in this one movie, which is actually a lot more than what happens in some of the other films. I don't consider this to be the best of all 6 by any means, but it is certainly not nearly as bad as some people make it out to be.
