    Yah! Episode II DVD will be out in Nov this year!

    Hope this will be inserted into the DVD:

    Why was Plo Koon and Ki-Adi-Mundi's commando raid on the Droid Control Ship cut from the final edit of Attack of the Clones?

    The attack on the Droid Control Ship was filmed and edited together, but never completed with final special effects. A Jedi attack force battled its way up the ship's ramp, through doorways, down halls, and into the bridge of the ship. The scene was filled with much swordplay and stunts.

    The sequence was dropped from the cut because it added another story to be intercut with what already was becoming too complicated and time consuming for the climax of the movie. Including the sequence also meant time needed to set it up and resolve it while the arena battle and the Clone War land battle proceeded simultaneously.

    There was lots and lots of material in each one of these sequences that needed to be trimmed. There was lots of Jedi action in the arena fight dropped, more Jango and Mace, and even at one point a battle in space with the Droid Control Ships.

    All of these would have been great to see, but choices have to be made for the priorities of the storyline.

    Hopefully they will also put in the missing 1st Senate scene after the 1st asssination Attempt on Padme. Just want to see that gown in its full glory.

    And the Missing part where Anakin was meditating in front of Padme's Bedroom on Coruscant just before OB1 came in and 2nd Assination Attempt; Flying OB1 almost plunging down when the Assination Droid got some wires detached; Zam shooting a few times at Flying OB1 and OB1 deflecting the shots with his lightsabre, Padme's Blue Naboo Gown (guys! stop drooling at her exposed skin!) and the part where Anakin hold Padme's Hand after their wedding which was last minute inserted into the Digital Version of AOTC. ;)

    Hmm, how many more missing scenes from AOTC are there? :D

    This time I have to get it...and hope that my computer can play a DVD better than it does a CD (it keeps playing until 00:19, then skips to the next track). :D

    Deleted scenes...Dooku with two sabres.

    I'm not sure about the rest of you, but my computer DVD player can't play TPM, despite me having software region decoder installed on the computer. I heard from somewhere it's some LF made lock which prevents software cracks. Wonder if AOTC DVD will also have it... :confused:

    Some of us here have the TPM DVD too right? What kind of players do you use?

    From the report at ComicCon '02

    "I'm excited to be able to show -- for the first time anywhere, one of [the DVD's] deleted scenes," said Sansweet at the tail end of his presentation. "Shortly after the mysterious murder of Zam Wesell, Obi-Wan goes to the Jedi Temple to try to determine the origin of the assassin's dart -- only to discover the archives contain no record of the source. While this was the very first special effects shot finished, it was determined the scene did little to move the plot forward, so it was removed."

    The scene, about a minute long, involves Kenobi in the analysis room, as two droids in a "clean room" carefully examine the Kamino saberdart. In its completed form, the scene involved live action (Ewan McGregor and a segment of the set), miniature photography (the clean room) and computer-generated imagery (the droids).


    And another hint about the 8 deleted scenes:

    Opening the floor to questions, Sansweet confirmed that the D-cinema version of Episode II, the one specifically created for digital projection, formed the basis of the DVD master. He also answered that the eight deleted scenes would not be incorporated into the movie proper, but like the Episode I DVD, would reside on the second disc.

    So 1 down, 7 more to go.

    November 12, Episode I returns to DVD in a full-screen format. All the great bonus material and special features will be available on this edition, which presents the film in a modified pan-and-scan format to fit standard television screens. The full-screen version of the DVD will also be bundled in a two-pack set alongside the full-screen edition of the Episode II DVD.

    HOLLYWOOD, California (Reuters) -- Twentieth Century Fox is cloning an Imax version of "Star Wars: Episode II -- Attack of the Clones," and the studio predicts mega-resolution visuals will stoke big interest when re-formatted prequel unspools November 1 in more than 70 giant-screen theaters, Variety reports.

    As we discuss here and as I replied somewhere, it's very unlikely that we'll get AOTC in IMAX format as Singapore's 20th Century Fox has no plan to bring them in again. :_|

    Unless Science Centre/OmiMax theater will bring them in . . .

    From TFN News:


    Update: Darth_Bingo chimes in:

    I just looked at the APTC DVD Trailer link posted earlier. The following is an incomplete list of deleted scenes which will reappear in the DVD:
    1)Jedi temple analysis room
    2)Anakin/Padme on trial
    3)Padme addresses the senate
    4)Padme and Anakin visits Naboo home
    5)???One scene - appears to be Jedi Starfighter hangar. Deleted Scene from 09/11 "Image Attack"???

    This still leaves 3 scenes unnacounted for...anyone have any idea what they are...? The trailer doesn't seem to divulge any more than this...


    Guess I got 2 of my wish fulfilled so far! :D

    Now hope they put in the extended version of the "Flying OB1, Firing Wesell". ;)
