Less Jar Jar helped this movie.. I think this movie was instrumental in explaining where the clones came from. Who ordered them, who they were made from and what they were intended for.
It also shows how the supreme chancellor was able to gain control of the senate and put these clones into play.
This movie really has many curious parts in it, but really shows the planning that was involved in taking over the universe by the Emperor. A couple of curious thoughts that weren’t explained in the movies though were:
History of the Sifo-Dyas and how Darth Sideous was the one responsible for ordering the army.
Was Anikan’s mother captured and tortured per Sideous’ plan or a random event that only served to push Anikan closer to the dark side? The emperor put so much thought and planning that it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility.
One other thing I picked up while re-watching this movie.. When Count Dooku cut off Anikan’s hand, his facial expression was that of being wounded himself. Did he sense a disturbance in the dark side? Was it simple that Yoda wasn’t too far away?
