Star Wars: Attack of the Clones by George Lucas and Jonathan Hales

It’s six days until the United Kingdom foreign preview release of Star Wars: the Force Awakens – Episode VII in the saga. At least, officially. There are some midnight screenings, but the official release date is still the 17th. Which is the date I’m sticking with regardless – it makes the counting-down easier. So, rather than going in release order like everyone else, I’m doing it in Episode order. Nyer. Here’s George Lucas and Jonathan Hales‘ screenplay to Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.

Lucas had been sceptical to write the second episode of the saga after the negative response to the first episode, Star Wars: Episode 1:The Phantom Menace, but completed a rough draft in March 2000, three months before production commenced. By this time, Lucas had produced a second draft. The third draft received an uncredited co-write from Hales, whose only feature-writing experience at this point was The Mirror Crack’d, which he’d also co-written. Their working title was Jar Jar’s Big Adventure, referencing an unpopular character from Star Wars: Episode 1:The Phantom Menace.

Script supervisor: Jayne-Ann Tenggren and Victoria Chambers-Pike.
