* ShownTheirWork: When the two Jedi are interrogating Zam Wesell to figure out who hired her, just as she's about to spill the beans, a projectile(later revealed to be a Kaminoan Sabre-Dart) imbeds itself in her neck, followed by the report of the weapon that fired it--though this may seem a plot contrivance to make sure that we're surprised by the dart, in actuality this is an example of this trope, as in reality, super-sonic weapons fired from a long range(Jango Fett is clearly a long way off in the subsequent shot) impact before the sound of their firing reaches the target, which is part of the reason why they're so deadly. You don't get to hear the shot and drop, as is often shown in cinema, you drop and then you hear the shot(or, if you're the target, your buddies do, but by then the shooter's usually re-located, again, as in the film).

* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** At the very end of the film, the Imperial March plays as Palpatine looks over a mass of Clone Troopers, a very interesting use of music to do this.
** There's also Count Dooku switching off a hologram of the Death Star plans and taking them with him to keep safe.
** R5-D4, who blows his motivator in episode IV, rolls right by R2-D2 in the opening shot of Tatooine.
** "Why do I get the feeling you're going to be the death of me?" - Obi-Wan to Anakin. [[Film/ANewHope Come two episodes later...]]
** Early in the film, Obi-Wan is concerned about Anakin, knowing that he's been having [[DreamingOfThingsToCome dreams about his mother]]. Anakin says he'd rather dream about Padmé. Next film he does, except just like his mother, it's about Padmé's approaching death.
** On the political side of the film, Padmé is told the people of Naboo wanted the constitution of their planet amended so she could stay in office. Meanwhile, on Coruscant, there's the constitution of the Republic about to be suspended so Palpatine can stay in office.
** R2-D2 and C-3PO, roaming in Tatooine, with a message for some Obi-Wan Kenobi. Sounds familiar...
** Anakin's own views on how the galaxy should be run:
--->'''Anakin:''' We need a system where the politicians sit down and discuss the problem, decide what's in the best interest of all the people, and then do it.\\
'''Padmé:''' That's exactly what we do. The problem is the people don't always agree.\\
'''Anakin:''' Then maybe they should be made to.\\
'''Padmé:''' By who? Who's gonna make them?\\
'''Anakin:''' I don't know. Someone.\\
'''Padmé:''' You?\\
'''Anakin:''' No, of course not me.\\
'''Padmé:''' But someone.\\
'''Anakin:''' ''[nods]'' Someone wise.\\
'''Padmé:''' That sounds an awful lot like a dictatorship to me.\\
'''Anakin:''' Well, if it works...
** A subtle one -- Anakin's lightsaber is shaped exactly like the one he'll use as Darth Vader, but with more chrome.
** While outside Padmé's room, Anakin and Obi-Wan discuss about trusting politicians, Anakin tells Obi-Wan he thinks Palpatine is a great man.
** During the fireplace scene, Anakin tells Padmé about how his feelings for her are causing him agony. Padmé in this scene is wearing a dress with a '''choker''' on it. [[PsychicStrangle Guess what happens to her in the next movie?]] Bonus points for this quote from Anakin: "The thought of not being with you...''I can't '''breathe'''.''"
** A literal instance happens as Anakin leaves to look for his mother Shmi. His silhouette's head looks like Darth Vader's helmet. And the best part is [[ThrowItIn it just happened that way on set]].[[invoked]]

* GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion: The IMAX, DVD and Blu-Ray releases make several changes to the movie.
** The IMAX release of the film cut out numerous scenes in order to fit in the two hour time limit for IMAX movies:
*** The scene where the Jedi Council meets with Palpatine after the first assassination attempt.
*** The part with Obi-Wan in the Jedi Archives.
*** The scene where Anakin complains about Obi-Wan's mentorship skills to Padme.
*** Padme and Anakin meeting with Queen Jamillia on Naboo, the meadow picnic scene and Anakin riding on a shaak.
*** Dooku speaking with Obi-Wan while Obi-Wan is being held prisoner on Geonosis.
*** Anakin and Obi-Wan's initial meeting with Padme.
*** Also, Bail Organa's lines are all removed.
*** And finally, due to the limited size of IMAX platters. The closing credits are played in a slide-show format rather than the traditional upward scroll.
** Several speeders were removed from a shot during the Bounty Hunter pursuit scene.
** New dialogue from Padmé was added to the scene where Anakin confesses to the Tusken slaughter to her.
** After Padmé falls out of the gunship on Geonosis, a clone trooper asks if she is all right. Her alert response of "Yes" has been changed to a more realistically groggy "Uh-huh".
** Anakin's mechanical hand now holds Padmé's hand during the closing wedding sequence (this was originally included in the DLP theatrical release of the film, but not in the 35 mm version).
** During their duel on Kamino, a shot of Jango Fett headbutting Obi-Wan is removed from the UK version of the DVD. This was also cut from the theatrical release in order to obtain a PG rating from the BBFC. The US DVD and blu-ray reinstates it.
** Moments before Mace Windu decapitates Jango Fett, sparks and a slight puff of smoke from Jango's jetpack can be seen, signifying that his jetpack malfunctioned.
** On the blu-ray, during the chase on Coruscant, when Anakin and Obi-Wan pass through the power couplings, several shots are rearranged.
** On the blu-ray, during Anakin's nightmare scene, a voiceover of his mother Shmi is added, saying "Anakin, help me!".
** On the blu-ray, After Yoda saves Obi-Wan and Anakin from Count Dooku's falling pillar, the reaction shots of Yoda and then Anakin and Obi-Wan are moved to before the shots of Dooku escaping on his ship and Padmé Amidala and the clonetroopers arriving and firing at him (this creates a noticable irregularity in background music).

* ArbitrarilyLargeBankAccount: One Jedi Master could order up an entire clone army and fleet of warships apparently without having to go through any kind of budget request to either the Jedi Council or the Senate. [[IdiotBall Nobody questions it]].
** The ''Legends'' novel ''Literature/DarthPlagueis'' states that the funding was provided by the titular character, who happens to be a wealthy banker as well as a Sith Lord.

** Anakin's initial approach to fighting Dooku is too swing at him wildly. It doesn't work and Anakin loses a hand for his troubles.
