Trivia

One of the sculptures in Padmé's apartment on Coruscant, resembles the work of sculptor Constantin Brancusi. The sculpture is on the table near the balcony and looks like a tall, thin flame.


Quotes

Naboo lieutenant: Senator, we're making our final approach into Coruscant.
CordÈ: Very good, Lieutenant.


Goofs

Obi-Wan's beard is noticeably fake in several scenes. This is because actor Ewan McGregor had shaved off his beard after principal photography, and the shooting of additional scenes required a wig and fake beard to re-create his look. Shots include the scene in the elevator to Padmé's apartment, the exchange about the 'changeling' in the Outlander Club and his entire interrogation by Count Dooku.


Crazy Credits

Actors Jerome St. John Blake, Hassani Shapi, Gin Clarke, Khan Bonfils, Michaela Cottrell and Dipika O'Neill Joti are credited for playing the same Jedi Council members as in Episode I, although they did not film any new footage for Episode II. Instead the Jedi Council scene uses recycled footage from Episode I. Many of those parts were re-cast (or in some cases renamed) for Episode II, during the Battle of Geonosis, using Australian actors, but they are not credited.
