DELETED SCENE: SWINGING THE CHASM (THE PREQUEL!)


In a deleted scene originally planned as an echo/tribute to EPISODE IV's previous, now famous, chasm swing with Luke and Leia, their parents-to-be Padme and Anakin make a similar effort in a closed off area above the droid foundry. The brief sequence was scrapped and replaced when Lucas instead saw potential for a major action sequence set within the obstacle-packed droid foundry itself...

On one hand it's good that they didn't do this as all the echoes back to other movies is just lazy storytelling and cheapens the story, not building on it.

On the other hand we received in trade the droid factory sequence, one of the foulest scenes in the PT and one that sets up having the droids in the arena battle at the end of the move (more foulness).

The movie is much improved by cutting both of those scenes out.
