The Neimoidian seen with Nute Gunray on Geonosis was originally intended to be Rune Haako. However, Rune's mask was lost shortly after the first film completed shooting. The production crew gave uncredited actor David Healey the mask of Daultay Dofine instead. Although the "new" Neimoidian had no official name during filming (the character was only referred to by the crew as "Nute's friend"), he was eventually named Gilramos Libkath, after costume supervisor Gillian Libbert and production controller Kathryn Farrar. Unfortunately, a mix-up in the end credits not only erroneously lists Alan Ruscoe in the part, but also says the Neimoidian is Lott Dod (the Trade Federation Senator seen briefly in Episode I). Much confusion has surrounded whether Nute's companion should be considered Rune Haako, Gilramos Libkath, or Lott Dod. The official Lucasfilm word is that it's Rune Haako "for all intents and purposes", but many fans are unsatisfied with this decision, based on the fact that the character neither looks nor sounds anything like Rune, who is back to his old Episode I self by Episode III.

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".
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.
