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 eight 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 20: Inspecting the Clones DISCUSSION: November 22, 2004 - November 26, 2004 DVD TIME INDEX: 45:48 - 47:47 Synopsis: Obi-Wan, Lama Su and Taun We walk down a glass hallway above a series of cloning facilties. Obi-Wan complements the Kaminoans on their achievements. The first room they see is one with thousands of clone embryos in glass tubes. Lama Su compares the clones with inferior droids as they come to the second room, where ten year old clones are learning from stations. The next room has adult clones eating. Lama Su mentions that the template was a bounty hunter named Jango Fett who besides his pay wanted an unaltered child for himself. They then visit a room where the troops are being armored and given their helmets. Obi-Wan says he'd want to meet this Jango Fett. They come out onto the balcony and witness thousands upon thousands of troops being loaded up for war. END OF CHAPTER Opinion: The next segment in our mystery story. I love this part of Kamino. The process of going from an embryo, suspended in fluid, to an armored killing machine is quite disturbing but intriguing at the same time. It's an interesting environment for the birth of clones. Every seems so believable, even though Ewan was pretty much the only real thing in the shot. It's a beautiful sequence that introduces so much in so little time. We get to hear the Fett name for this first name. Not Boba, but Jango Fett. Every step in this cloning process is much more darker and darker and by the time they enter the loading ship, it's like oh crap, the Clone Wars are really starting. One of the most important chapters of the entire saga, and it's done well. Short, but sweet and it thickens the plot by adding that bounty hunter, the same one who at this point could have killed Zam on Coruscant. Excellent chapter.
