Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones is the fifth Star Wars film, and was released in 2002. It is the second part of the prequel trilogy which began with Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and ended with Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. It is also the first Star Wars film which used a high definition digital 24 frame system for most of the movie's live action scenes.[1]

The film is set ten years after the Battle of Naboo, when the galaxy is on the brink of civil war. Under the leadership of renegade Jedi Master Count Dooku, thousands of solar systems threaten to secede from the Republic. When an assassination attempt is made on Senator Padmé Amidala, the former Queen of Naboo, Jedi apprentice Anakin Skywalker is assigned to protect her, while his mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi is assigned to investigate the assassination attempt. Soon the Jedi are drawn into the heart of the separatist movement, and the beginning of a new threat to the galaxy: the Clone Wars.

The film was a financial success, grossing over $300 million at the box office in United States; however, the film was overshadowed by the even greater box-office success of its predecessor: The Phantom Menace. For the first time, a Star Wars film did not gather the highest box office sales for the year; the highest grossing film turned out to be Spider-Man which garnered a more favorable critical reception.

Since the movie was released, Lego® made several sets and minifigures based on scenes and characters from Episode II.
