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 24: Obi-Wan's Report DISCUSSION: December 12, 2004 - December 16, 2004 DVD TIME INDEX: 56:42 - 58:53 Synopsis: Escorting Obi-Wan back outside, Taun We tells him to relay to the Jedi Council that the first batallions are ready. She also tells him that clones do take time to grow. The Jedi thanks her as she departs from the scene. Obi-Wan, with his hood up, heads back to the ship and prepare R4 to send a message to the "Old-Folks Home" on Coruscant. In an meditation chamber, Obi-Wan speaks to his masters Yoda and Mace Windu via hologram. He confirms that he has made contact with Lama Su and that they are using a bounty hunter named Jango Fett to create a clone army. He believe Jango is the assassin. Obi-Wan believes that there is no motive for the cloners to assassinate Senator Amidala. Yoda says to not assume anything and clear his mind must be. Kenobi also states that Master Sifo-Dyas placed an order at the request of the Senate ten years ago. Obi-Wan wonders if any request was authorized by the council. Mace quickly responds no. Yoda says to bring Jango to Coruscant for questioning. Obi-Wan agrees to report when he has captured him. The hologram fades. Yoda and Mace are astonished by the recent revelation. Mace suggests to inform the Senate of their diminished state. Yoda responds by saying that if the Senate is informed, then their enemies will multiply. END OF CHAPTER Opinion: The mystery thickens a bit more as Obi-Wan reports his finding to his superiors on Coruscant. A very intriguing chapter. Very dark and twists the entire plot around completely in another direction. The entire conversation between the Jedi is well done and manages to get enough information for the fan to want even more. The CG hologram is pretty good. It's very difficult to get a clear picture of Obi-Wan due to the background. However, the meditation chamber is nice location. Very simple with just a hologram projector and two places to sit as opposed to the luxury of Padme or Palpatine's offices and apartments. The exchanges between Mace and Yoda are still puzzling almost 2-3 years later. Mace seems to be quick in saying that the council never authorized a clone army and automatically says to inform the Senate of their diminished powers. Also Yoda's warning has me thinking that they both know something and nothing has been said as of yet. I always liked this scene. It adds so much much to the mystery plotline, which will evolve into a Jedi vs. Sith plotline. One of the last times we'll be seeing Kamino. Pity. Excellent chapter nevertheless.
