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 49: Secret Union DISCUSSION: April 16, 2005 - April 20, 2005 DVD TIME INDEX: 134:42 - 135:47 Synopsis: Back on Varykino, Anakin weds Padme Amidala. A Naboo Holy Man conducts the ceremony. Anakin place his real hand in Padme's and his artificial hand in her other hand. The Naboo Holy Man leaves. Anakin and Padme as husband and wife kiss for the first time as Artoo and Threepio watch in attendance. The married couple then turn to look over the gleaming lake. Iris Out. END OF CHAPTER - END OF STAR WARS - EPISODE II: ATTACK OF THE CLONES Opinion: This is probably the moment, I've waited since Phantom Menace between these two characters. You know by the end of the first film, they are meant to be together and after what they went through in this film why not. I like this chapter. It works because this is the same place they shared their first kiss. Seems that there's more than escorting going on. This is truly the finale of the film, despite having the Clone Staging Area originally. Paralleling the end of ESB quite well, the marriage scene works. We still have Artoo and Threepio at the end, just like in the other five movies. And the addition of the golden hand is perfect since Luke gets his artificial hand at the end of Empire. Even though it's really supposed to be a happy moment for the two characters, it truly is the next step in the beginning of the end. Especially with what is to come. Not only ROTS, but Clone Wars as well. And I just love Across the Stars blaring in the background. Nice touch indeed. It's a really good chapter, wrapping up a really good movie. Two chapters of this six part saga have come and gone. Now it's time to bring on the epic finale of this Prequel Trilogy, Revenge of the Sith. Excellent chapter.
