(mbc.net) In 1977 Lucas released his first Star Wars film which changed cinema forever and became the highest grossing film of all time then. He followed it with The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and then Return of the Jedi (1983).

In 1999, Lucas decided to go back to where it all began and start a new trilogy pre-dating the events of the first 3 movies. So this is the saga of how it all came to be...

In episode II of the prequel-trilogy; Attack of the Clones- coincidentally the longest film of the series, Attack of the Clones is set 10 years after the events of The Phantom Menace.

The now-able, 20-year-old, Jedi apprentice Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) is tasked with protecting Senator Padmé Amidala (Natalie Portman), the former Queen of Naboo, after an assassination attempt on her life.

Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) is investigating the assassination attempt, but he seems more uneasy about Anakin's impatience and headstrong arrogance. However, a romantic relationship seems to be emerging between Padmé and Anakin, while the universe is being torn apart by Jedi Count Dooku and his army of droids and an opposing army of clones...
