    Why didn't Jedi notice decoy?

    I was watching TPM for the first time this weekend and this thought came to me: If the Jedi are so wise and knowing, why didn't they immediately notice something was up with Padme and her decoy?

    The decoy was in place the moment the Jedi arrived on Naboo. At no time until the ruse was revealed was did the Jedi know anything about the switch. Remember, when Queen Amidala made her plea to the Senate, the only ones who saw her before and after were Anakin, Jar Jar and Palpatine.

    That's true.

    There were two instances of where the Jedi spoke to the decoy and the real Padme: on the way to Tatoonie (fake) and on the way back to Naboo (real). They could have noticed a difference at those times.

    Because they hadn't seen Pirates of the Caribbean yet.

    No, I've seen it multiple times but this past weekend was the first time in a while.

    Don't you notice something new and different?

    Usually, but you didnt state that previously, so we were unsure.

    What is this Star Wars thing I keep seeing mentioned on this forum?

    By choosing not to decide you still have made a choice.

    I'm in love with the women of Univision.

    Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan knew there was a decoy all along.
