I don't know about you guys but here's what surprised me about AOTC:
Blue Clonetrooper is IN the final cut. (On Kamino getting the helmets)
Nemoidian shuttle that we only saw part of in TPM is in the movie too (what Nute and Gilramos escape Geonosis in)
Orn Free Taa is hardly in it at all.
Shots of coruscant look exactly like old McQuarrie paintings (Especially the one of the run-down section)
A LOT of music was from TPM, Yoda's theme when he's lifting the crane.
Massifs in the tusken camp but no banthas (that I could see)
Poggle's voice and AsK Aak's voice (wierd)
The scene where the guard tell Corde they're ready to land.
The scenes with Padme and the Clones and Yoda and the clones.
How incredibly HOT Padme looks in that pilot suit.
How incredibly HOT Padme looks in just about everything else.
How at time Anakin is JUST like Vader, JUST like how he was in TPM, and JUST like Luke!!!!!!
How Ewan McGreggor WAS EXACTLY like Alec Guiness in some many scenes. (the elevator scene blew me away)
I can't remember anythiong else just yet but this movie was awesome, the best SW movie EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
