Star Wars Week at Capes and Tights rolls on with discussion by Adam and Justin on Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.
Attack of the Clones was released on May 16, 2002 with slightly less of a bang. The box office for episode two was only $653.8 million on the $115 million budge. The second film in the prequel trilogy was also written and directed by George Lucas, but Jonathan Hales joined George to help write the screenplay. Rick McCallum returned to produce.
Returning from Episode I was Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Natalie Portman as Queen Padmé Amidala, Ian McDiarmid as Senator Palpatine / Darth Sidious, Samuel L. Jackson as Mace Windu, Ahmed Best as Jar Jar Binks, Anthony Daniels as the voice of C-3PO, Kenny Baker as R2-D2, Pernilla August as Shmi Skywalker, and Frank Oz as the voice of Yoda. Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker, Temuera Morrison as Jango Fett, and Christopher Lee as Count Dooku / Darth Tyranus, and more joined the cast.
