    Why did George Lucas change AOTC already?

    Computer imposing Amidala holding Anakin's hand at the wedding?

    What's the point?

    Also when the Stormtrooper asks Amidala if she is okay, it's been changed from "Yes" to "Uh huh".

    Pointless.

    I've not got the DVD yet but the hand-holding scene was in the digital print version at the cinema, which is why it's in the DVD.

    I seem to remember the hand holding scene also.

    The dialogue change has been an improvement though, think about it. Padme has fallen from a ship travelling at high speed and taken a big bump, then when asked if she is OK, she just says, "Yes". The problem being not what she said, but how she said it, like she was bright and breezy without an ache or pain.

    Now she sounds groggy a bit like she might have just fallen from a flying vehicle at high velocity. No, hang on a minute, it still doesn't sound anything like she might have just fallen from a flying vehicle at high velocity but at least she sounds a little groggy. Shame she still manages to get up and issue orders, then run off like nothing happened though.

    It may interest you to know that the hand-holding bit was actually seen in cinemas - but only in digital cinemas. :) In between the original celluloid cinema release and the digital cinema release Lucas made some last-minute adjustments, including the addition of that scene. The DVD is presumably based on the digital cinema cut.

    Jangos jet also had a few more sparks added, according to the commentry. Not that it makes that much difference even when george says "this is where extra the sparks were added" its like......AND, so what? It would of been better if Jango tried to fire his rockets, shook his head from side to side when they failed to fire, shrugged his shoulders before having his head lobbed off by Obi-wan.

    Bloody hell! George really has been messing with this film. The version I saw had Mace Windu chopping off Jango's head. :p

    Speaking of Jango's beheading, I'm sure they added the shadow of his head falling out of the helmet for the DVD. Many people saw Boba pick up Jango's helmet and assumed that his head was still in there, albeit very lightweight:p . If this 'was' added for the DVD, then I can see it as being relevant.

    I'm pretty sure my local Cineworld isn't digital as the showing of AOTC that I saw had some of the worst interference from artifacts associated with celluloid projection I have seen (if it is digital then the PJ has some major PQ issues) and I definately saw the hand holding scene because just as I thought " he got over a major trauma a bit quickley..." it showed the prosthetic limb. Not a patch on the one Woody Harrelson got in Kingpin IMO.

    Could I just say that in my defence, it was an injustice Obi-Wan didnt actualy do the deed himself. It would of made more sence if Jango went after Obi-Wan to cover his tracks and remove any evidence Obi would have against him.

    lol, a worthy defence but one with a slight flaw. Obi-Wan had already told everyone via a holo message that they were using a Bounty hunter called Jango Fett.

    The problem now is that I am beginning to sound like a serious Starwars geek here. Not good, I do have a life, (honest)!

    OK BadAss, you got me now.

    The only explanation I can come up with is this. Jango would have assumed that being a goody two shoes Jedi, the first thing Obi-Wan would do would be to run and tell tales on him.

    Clutching at straws now :)

    Dont forget Jangos a Bounty Hunter. Instead off wimping it while Obi-wans sight seeing why not just kill him while he has the chance, before his cover was blown, he did have a whole army there to help him.

    Jango couldn't just kill Obi-Wan in front of the Kamino's - remember they were under the impression the army was for the Republic and would have apprehended Jango if he did anything against Obi-Wan. Besides, he did try and kill him shortly after on the landing pad and the space shootout.

    Also, even though the Clones were modelled on Jango, I see no reason whay he would have had any control over them. They didn't even look like him and were played by the same actor as Captain Panaka by the looks of it.
