Until the release of ROTS on 5/19/05, I would like to discuss AOTC chapter by chapter on the DVD. There are 47 chapters to discuss over the next 8 months, excluding Chapter 1: Opening Logos, Chapter 2: Attack of the Clones and Chapter 50: End Credits. Each discussion will last 5 days. At the end of 5 days, the following chapter will be posted. Chapter 12: Jedi Archives DISCUSSION: October 13, 2004 - October 17, 2004 DVD TIME INDEX: 33:47 - 34:48 Synopsis: In the Jedi Library, Obi-Wan stares at a bust of Count Dooku. Madame Jocasta Nu comes over to Obi-Wan and asks if he needs assistance. Obi-Wan says that he's looking for a planet called Kamino. They go to a table in the middle of the library. On the small viewscreen, a map of the entire galaxy is in view. The map shifts to the Rishi Maze, but where Kamino is supposed be shows only space on the map. Obi-Wan believes the archives are incomplete. Jocasta Nu tells Obi-Wan that if an item does not appear in the archives then it doesn't exist. She goes away and helps a Jedi child. Obi-Wan stares at the screen. END OF CHAPTER Opinion: I liked the scene in the library. It's short and gets right to the point. The blue effect shows the Jedi as peacekeepers as opposed to Palpatine's apartment, which is red. Obi-Wan staring at Count Dooku's bust had great foreshadowing potential, however they did cut out "The Lost Twenty." Then when they go over to the map and trying to find Kamino, it's like the Jedi are supposed to have all the information of the galaxy and they're missing Kamino. Jocasta Nu was good as the librarian. I think it's obvious that she's protective of the library or is hiding something when Obi-Wan says that the records are incomplete. I also like Lucas' son as a padawan who needs help. It was a good way for Jocasta Nu to get away from Obi-Wan and not lose her temper. Short scene that adds more mystery. I wish the archives scene could have lasted longer. Coruscant is expanded so much in such a confined timeframe.
