STAR WARS Book Answers A Nagging Question Fans Have Had About An Apparent ATTACK OF THE CLONES Plot Hole

The Star Wars prequels didn't deliver the strongest storytelling at times, but a newly released book has addressed at least one plot hole from Attack of the Clones regarding bounty hunter Zam Wesell...

Attack of the Clones is widely considered the worst Star Wars movie, and while there are actually a lot of cool moments between Anakin's hatred of sand and Yoda's acrobatics, it is perhaps the weakest of all three prequels. Of course, among the many issues with the plot is the role bounty hunter Zam Wesell played during that early battle with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.

After failing to assassinate Padme Amidala, the villain takes off in a speeder and is ultimately caught by the Jedi who interrogate her for information. Before she can say anything, the villain is killed by Jango Fett, transforming into her true Clawdite appearance upon her death. 

As a member of that alien race, Wesell has the ability to shape-shift, prompting many fans to wonder why the bounty hunter didn't just change her appearance and blend into the crowd. 

Well, in the newly released Secrets of the Bounty Hunters book, a bio for the character sheds some light on this apparent plot hole. "Wesell survived the resulting speeder crash and managed to briefly escape the Jedi," it explains (via SFFGazette.com). "As a Clawdite, she could have simply changed her face and faded away into the crowd. But for some, revenge is just as rewarding as a pile of credits."

"Wesell could not resist the chance to strike bad at the Jedi who had ruined her job. I am assuming you have never tried to sneak up on someone who has mastered the Force but let me tell you, it never ends well."

It's previously been revealed that actor Leeana Walsman had no idea she was playing a shape-shifter, as a decision was made during post-production to superimpose a "mask" over her face. We don't know what prompted director George Lucas to make the change, but perhaps he felt the ending needed a little something more? Overall, it only really served to confuse Star Wars fans. 

Still, some clarification is always welcomed, and this does answer a question that's niggled a lot of people for a long time now.
