Story[change | change source]
Ten years after the previous movie, Senator Padmé Amidala is nearly killed by an unknown assassin, and Supreme Chancellor Palpatine assigns a young Jedi knight - Anakin Skywalker - to protect her. Anakin and Padmé haven't seen each other for ten years. They travel to Naboo, which is a safe planet. Anakin falls in love with Senator Padmé.
Meanwhile, Obi-Wan Kenobi tracks the assassin, Jango Fett, to a planet called Kamino. Obi-Wan discovers that on Kamino, an army of clone soldiers is being made for the Republic, but nobody knows who commissioned them. He also finds out that Jango Fett's DNA is being used to create the clones.
Anakin begins to have dreams of his mother dying so he travels back to Tatooine with Padmé and finds his mother, who has been tortured by alien savages. Anakin's mother dies, causing Anakin to briefly turn to the Dark Side and kill all of the savages, something a Jedi is forbidden from doing.
Jango Fett tries to escape to a remote desert planet called Geonosis but Obi-Wan follows him. Obi-Wan finds out that Jango Fett is working for Count Dooku, a former Jedi. Dooku is the leader of the Separatists, a group of planets who want to leave the Galactic Republic. Obi-Wan also finds out that Nute Gunray, Poggle the Lesser and several other corrupt businessmen are giving their armies to the Separatists so that they can fight the Republic.
Obi-Wan sends a distress signal to Anakin and Padmé and he is captured. Anakin and Padmé arrive on Geonosis but they are also captured by Jango Fett. The three of them are sentenced to death in an arena, watched by thousands of insect-like aliens called Geonosians. Luckily, Mace Windu and hundreds of Jedi arrive to save them. The Separatists reveal their droid army and they surround the Jedi.
Suddenly, Yoda arrives with the clone soldiers and they fight the Separatists. Dooku manages to escape Geonosis. Dooku returns to Coruscant, where he meets Chancellor Palpatine, leader of the Republic. Dooku tells Palpatine that their plan is working, implying to the audience that Dooku and Palpatine were the ones who asked the Kaminoans for the clone army so that they could start a war. Anakin and Padmé get married secretly while the Republic and the Jedi prepare their clone troopers prepare to go to war with the Separatists.
