Star Wars: Attack of the Clones

With mystery and romance, Attack of the Clones helped carry cinema into the digital age

Written and directed by George Lucas, the filmmaker was eager to tell his story in a new kind of way.

With revolutionary techniques in film production, Episode II had re-imagined the possibilities of cinema much like its predecessor over two decades before. With the leadership of Lucas and Visual Effects Supervisor John Knoll, Attack of the Clones was one of the first major motion pictures to be captured digitally, and featured computer-generated characters and environments that placed live action actors in truly immersive worlds.

Leaving a galaxy engulfed in war, the story of Episode II gave rise to many of the greatest Star Wars adventures yet to come…


When Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker is reunited with Padmé Amidala after a decade apart, he falls in love with her and the couple is forced to keep their romance a secret. Meanwhile, Obi-Wan Kenobi investigates a dangerous mystery that leaves the galaxy consumed by civil war.

The shroud of the dark side has fallen. Begun the Clone War has.
