Other Notes

Porkins soup
Soupy
Shu Mai and a Presidente (to go)
Chenini with a side order of Shu Mai
  • Cut scene of Padmé and C-3PO. He was still "naked" and Padmé gives him his skin.
    • C-3PO is the weird "older brother" of Luke and Leia. Mentioned: Baker Street.
    • Owen doesn't recognize Threepio later on.
    • When Cliegg bought Shmi, did he have to pay extra for Creepio? Watto was probably happy to get rid of him.
      • Watto's chance cube. Mentioned: the One Ring.
    • Welding.
  • The three moons of Tatooine: Ghomrassen, Guermessa, and Chenini.
    • All named for towns in the vicinity of Tataouine, Tunisia.
  • This meeting seems pointless: no new information is presented.
  • Banthas.
  • Wat Tambor as a commencement speaker.

Meta Minute

When you google "black orangutan", it actually comes up with these guys, the black Bornean orangutan (a rare subspecies native to the island of Borneo, so named due to their dark fur color).
  • On the Canon tab of Wat Tambor's Wookieepedia page, it says he was voiced by Ben Burtt in this movie, but on the Legends tab it says he was voiced by Truswell. Annoyingly, both pages cite the same source (which supports the Canon tab) for this conflicting information. The Internet Movie Database agrees with the Legends page. All three pages agree that all members of the Separatist Council are entirely CGI in this movie.
  • The orangutan-looking character is named Rogwa Wodrata. Along with Shu Mai, she is female. Known as "Gatorhead" during production, she was a digital replacement for Toonbuck Toora.
  • "I Am the Walrus" will come up again tomorrow.
  • The pile of laundry with a horn also has a name: it's Passel Argente.

Quotes

  • Pete: Now it's kind of charming... in how terrible I think [Wat Tambor's steampunk suit of armor] is.
  • Pete: What's up over there? It looks like Frankenstein's trapped in an old refrigerator.
  • Hal: We have to stop the Jedi. What do you think, 'First draft of <sic>Doctor Freeze'?
  • Pete: Like, what do I do, 'black orangutan'? Hal: probably shouldn't put that into Google...under any circumstances.
  • Alex: The head of the walrus men. Pete: The head of the Walrus man guild [...] "Paulrus".
  • Pete, then Alex, then Hal: (as Jawas) Chenini!
