According to Natalie Portman on the Blu-ray commentary, the character of Padmé Amidala was going to leave politics altogether after her term as Queen ended, but remained on as Senator at the insistence of the new Queen.
Senator, we're making our final approach into Coruscant.
CordÈ: Very good, Lieutenant.
At the planned execution, Padme starts climbing to the top of a pole. After Obi-Wan comments on this, she is already at the top somehow.
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.
The original UK releases were cut by the distributor to secure a PG rating (an uncut 12 rating was available). About 1 second of footage was excised, removing a head butt in the fight scene between Obi-Wan and Jango Fett. The cut was waived in 2011. (The film was also rated PG in Ireland and played uncut in Irish cinemas).
