Notes

Film

  • Starts with the clone army putting boots on the ground, ready for battle, and ends with the LAAT being fired upon from some other source.

Podcast

  • The LAAT was conceived to be the "Jedi attack helicopter". This seems to be another Vietnam reference.
  • Kit Fisto jumps into a LAAT with his lightsaber ignited, without any consideration for safety.
  • Apparently, there was supposed to be a sub-plot involving an attempt to shut down a Trade Federation droid control ship.
  • This is the last time we see Boba Fett in the Star Wars movies (chronologically) before The Empire Strikes Back.
  • According to Gary Kurtz, Boba Fett was once planned to be the main villain in Return of the Jedi.
  • For the Special Edition, George Lucas wanted to add a scene with Boba Fett climbing out of the Sarlacc pit.

Meta Minute

  • 37:47 podcast episode length.

Quotes

  • Pete: Jedi Squad! Barry: Force powers activate! Alex: "Jedi squat" is more like it, because they don't do anything!
