Skywalker shot toward the arena and across the finish line, winning the Boonta Eve Classic coming to a halt, the crowd swarmed his racer and Jinn hoisted Skywalker onto his shoulders in celebration.
Anakin's resolve broke and he ran back to his mother who promised that he would return and free her but despite their sorrow at parting, Shmi convinced her son to go with the Jedi.
At the Jedi Temple, Skywalker faced the twelve Jedi Masters on the Council with Mace Windu testing Skywalker's abilities by asking him to determine what images were appearing on a testing screen that the Jedi was holding but that the boy could not see.
The Jedi Council acknowledged Skywalker's great power in the Force but refused to train him on account of his age.
When the group entered the Theed hangar bay, Skywalker heeded Jinn's command for him to stay hidden in the cockpit of one of the hangar's N-1 starfighters.
Skywalker fought in the Battle of Naboo in a vicious starfighter battle above the planet.
The Council reluctantly agreed for Kenobi to begin Skywalker's training, though they were concerned that Skywalker would be too difficult a student for young Kenobi to handle.
Young Anakin as a Jedi youngling celebrating on Naboo.
Skywalker was reunited with Padmé Amidala whom was delighted to see her after so many years; he had thought about her every day since they parted.
Obi-Wan started to explain that they were only there to protect her life, not to investigate, but Anakin promised Padmé to find who was responsible, annoying Kenobi.
Shortly after, when his master noticed that Skywalker was tired, he admitted that he had constant nightmares about his mother; he also revealed his powerful affection for Amidala.
Skywalker sensed something in Padmé's room and arrived just in time to cut two venomous kouhuns in half, just a few centimeters from the senator's face.
Anakin piloted a speeder, caught Kenobi and continued the pursuit of Wesell's airspeeder who spotted their speeder taking her's on a nosedive — plunging several meters toward the lower levels of Coruscant.
Anakin and Obi-Wan thought they lost her, but just a few minutes later Skywalker noticed the bounty hunter's airspeeder below, and jumped out, letting his body drop the intervening distance through the air.
Skywalker latched a firm hand-grip to its rear canopy handle, ignited his lightsaber and sliced at the windscreen, knocking out the guidance systems.
The airspeeder began to plummet toward the surface, crashing near the Outlander Club, Wesell crawled from the crash site and fled into the club with Anakin giving chase.
Inside the Outlander Club, Anakin was instructed by his master to search the premises while he went for a drink at the bar.
Skywalker and Kenobi took the wounded bounty hunter and dragged her from the club, setting her in an alley behind the club for interrogation with Wesell was initially reluctant to give any information about who had hired her, replying that it had simply been a job but Skywalker pressed her.

Skywalker escorted the disgruntled senator to the spaceport where they would travel disguised as refugees back to Naboo to avoid looking conspicuous.
Disguised as a refugee couple from the Thousand Moons system, Amidala and Skywalker traveled discreetly on a freighter ship to Naboo.
During the trip they discussed the sacrifice that Anakin's mother made by letting him go to train with the Jedi.
Upon arriving on Naboo, Amidala and Skywalker discuss her political career.
At the beginning of Amidala's sojourn, Jamillia met her predecessor in the Royal Palace, and the two discussed the probability of an imminent full-scale conflict between the Republic and the Separatists.
When Padmé says Anakin is just a Padawan, he sternly says he is in charge of security.
Senator Amidala counters that this is her home and that he should listen to her, which greatly irritates Anakin.
After a meeting with Queen Jamillia, as well as a meal with Amidala's family, she and Anakin took refuge at Varykino, the Naberrie family lake retreat.
While on Naboo, he experienced inner conflict between his strong desires for her and his duties as a Jedi.
Both seemed entranced with the other despite their different social castes.
The two lost their inhibitions and shared their first kiss, but Amidala eventually came to her senses.

Amidala accompanied Anakin to Tatooine to help find and rescue her.
Upon landing on Tatooine, Skywalker made his way straight for Watto's shop.
Skywalker stated in Huttese that he was looking for Shmi Skywalker and Watto began to realize that the man was in fact his old slave, Anakin.
Anakin learns from Watto that his mother has married a moisture farmer named Cliegg Lars.
Anakin and Padmé travels to the Lars moisture farm where they find C-3PO covered in a tarnished grey plating.
C-3PO took his former master into the Lars homestead, where Skywalker met the family who bought his mother.
Young Owen Lars and his girlfriend, Beru Whitesun, greeted Skywalker and Amidala.
The owner of the homestead, Cliegg Lars, approached Skywalker after he questioned Owen about his mother's whereabouts.
While speaking with Lars, Anakin learned, to his horror, that Shmi had been abducted by Tusken Raiders.
Although Lars told his stepson to accept that Shmi was gone, Skywalker was determined to find his mother.
Skywalker ignored him and prepared to leave the homestead, intent on searching for his mother.
Upset and unwilling to give up, Skywalker traveled into the desert to rescue her, leaving Amidala in the care of the Lars family.
Anakin searches for his mother on Tatooine using the Lars' swoop bike.
The voyage to find his mother proved to be a challenge for Skywalker but he received information from a Jawa about a Tusken camp not far from his location.
Anakin travels through the night and finds a Tusken camp.
That night, the young Jedi discovered the Tusken village beyond the B'Thazoshe Bridge where he saw the camp barely illuminated by its campfire and knew that his mother was there.
Quietly, Skywalker proceeded towards one of the tents, locating his mother with his Jedi sense of Force empathy.
Skywalker used his lightsaber to cut a hole through the thick cloth that held the tent together and slipped into the tent that contained his mother.
Anakin encountered a bound and emaciated Shmi, who was near death.
Prior to her death, she managed to tell her son that she was proud of him and that she loved him.
With her final breaths, Shmi managed to whisper her love for him before quietly dying in his arms.

Anakin returns to the Lars homestead with his mother's body.
Skywalker brought his mother's body back to the homestead.
The rough moment for Skywalker turned when Amidala entered the room where Skywalker was inside the homestead working in the garage.
In his anger and sorrow, he rashly claimed that one day he would have the power to stop people from dying, and that Obi-Wan was jealous of his power, holding him back.
Skywalker deeply grieved for Shmi's death, and confessed to Amidala his massacre of the Tusken Raider village in which his mother had been held captive.
Anakin reveals to Padmé that he killed the entire camp of Tuskens and that he hates them.
When Skywalker told Amidala that he had killed the tribe, he justified his actions at first, Amidala was clearly troubled by what Skywalker had done, but had invested herself too much in him to be truly repulsed and tried to soothe him with sympathy.
Anakin expressed his hate for the Sand People before remembering that he was a Jedi, and he broke down in remorse for killing them and Amidala told him that his emotions made him human, but Skywalker responded that he was a Jedi and was better than that and should be above revenge.
A funeral was held for Shmi Skywalker Lars at the Lars moisture farm on Tatooine.
In front of her grave, Anakin voiced his regret that he could not save her.
Anakin promised not to let anything of the sort happen again as he would become so powerful in the Force he could stop the people he loved from dying.
"I wasn't strong enough to save you, Mom. I wasn't strong enough. But I promise I won't fail again. I miss you...so much."
It was then that Skywalker received a message from Kenobi telling him of Separatist presence on Geonosis, which they re-transmitted to Coruscant so that the Jedi Council could see it for themselves.

Amidala, Skywalker and Kenobi were individually chained to three stone pillars.
The execution of Amidala, Skywalker, and Kenobi was to be carried out by several creatures brought into the arena: a reek, an acklay, and a nexu with Skywalker commenting that he has a bad feeling about this.
With Anakin captured, a reek was selected along with an acklay and a nexu to be the animals used to execute the three.

As he stood victorious, Skywalker gave a loud yell of rage, knowing that he had won.
As a result of giving into his anger once again, Anakin took yet another step closer to the dark side of the Force.
This had only been accomplished, though, by tapping into his anger.
Skywalker tossed Ventress' lightsaber into the chasm as well.
Skywalker then commandeered Ventress' Ginivex-class starfighter and returned to Muunilinst.
After the duel, Skywalker returned to Muunilinst in Ventress's fighter and was scolded by Kenobi for his hotheadedness.
Skywalker exits the starfighter, apologizing for his disobedience and confirming the chase had been a Sith trap.

They were interrupted by the cries of C-3PO.
C-3PO was searching for his mistress.
Skywalker noticed something different about the droid.
Amidala pointed out his new gold-colored coverings.
Skywalker claims to be impressed; most impressed.
Skywalker was then called away by Kenobi to the Jedi Temple.
Anakin once again bids farewell to his beloved wife.
Skywalker finally arrives but he arrives late.
Anakin interpreted his being summoned as a prelude to another scolding.
Kenobi reminds his Padawan that he is no longer a child but must still follow his Master's orders.
Skywalker retorts that Kenobi is "no Qui-Gon Jinn!"
This saddens Kenobi visibly and Skywalker immediately regrets his hurtful comment, and apologizes.
Master Kenobi forgives his student thus confessing that he misses their old friend and mentor Qui-Gon too.

The pair leave once again to serve together in the Clone Wars…
A scout battle droid reports that Jedi are approaching — and the general is surprised to discover they number only two: Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.
After dismounting from their creatures, Kenobi and Skywalker made short work of B2 super battle droids with their lightsabers.]
Kenobi and Skywalker avoided the fort's defensive weaponry batteries and infiltrated the facility.
Once inside, the Jedi disabled the structure's ray shield, rendering the fortress and all forces within vulnerable to an attack on Bomis Koori IV.
In a space battle, Saesee Tiin was saved from death by the timely arrival of Jedi General Anakin Skywalker, who destroyed the droids with his starfighter's laser cannons.
After saving Tiin, Skywalker, flanked by several of the battle group's ARC-170 starfighters, took out other tri-fighter droids near the Venator-class Star Destroyers.
Skywalker appeared, and destroyed one of the LM-432 crab droids by cutting off its leg with his lightsaber.

While their clone troopers continued their bombardment of the shield above ground, the two Jedi made their way through the sewers.
The two Jedi make their way through the sewers and into the underground levels of the city.
From there, they made their way to the shield generator chamber and Skywalker wants to fight the droids, but Kenobi simply blows up the shield generator by using small spherical bombs and pointing out that there are alternatives to fighting.
As the shield generator blows up, Skywalker and Kenobi dive into the waters avoiding the explosion.
With the shield down, Skywalker and Kenobi exited the city, leaving Commander Cody to lead a full scale attack including Clone jet troopers and All Terrain Recon Transports with Aggressive ReConnaissance-170 starfighters providing aerial support.
As the Republic forces were preparing to depart aboard Acclamator-class assault ships and Venator-class Star Destroyers, Kenobi and Skywalker received an urgent HoloNet transmission from Coruscant.
On the conquered battlefront, Kenobi and Skywalker receive an urgent message from Supreme Chancellor Palpatine and Mace Windu on Coruscant.
Master Windu states they must end this conflict at its source which Skywalker responds is Grievous.
The Chancellor responded that Grievous had been spotted on a number of different worlds.
The two Jedi were dispatched to ascertain what interest the Separatists had in the Outer Rim world.
Kenobi's battle fleet arrives in the system, where they detect no enemy forces on the planet surface, but find the planet in the grip of a sudden ice age, accompanied by some strange geothermal readings.
Deciding that the readings were worth investigation, Skywalker, Kenobi, and a small force of clone troopers landed on the planet's surface via CR-20 troop carrier.
Anakin jokes with a clone trooper about a feral mouse.
The two Jedi noticed that several of the planet's creatures were startled, and not by the Republic incursion.

Despite Kenobi's warning, Skywalker kills the Horax single-handed.
Anakin plunges his weapon into the horax's head.
Once the dust of battle had cleared, however, a group of Nelvaanians emerged, incensed at Skywalker's actions.
The Jedi were brought to the village of Rokrul on the Nelvaanian mounts.
Skywalker and the Nelvaanian tribe ride banthas towards the village.
Upon arrival, Skywalker and Kenobi noted that there were only women and children — no men in sight.
The chieftain, Tuzes-Adaz, led the Jedi into a cave where they met with an elder Nelvaanian, Orvos.
It became evident to Kenobi, who could understand the Nelvaanese, that Skywalker had interrupted Tuzes-Adaz's son's rite of passage by slaying the horax.
Orvos then spoke, and although Kenobi was unsure of his translation, he informed Skywalker that he would have to "journey into fire," a prospect that startled the young Jedi.
That night, the Jedi joined the Nelvaanians in gathering around a camp fire for a ceremony conducted by Orvos.
Orvos threw some of his powders into the fire, and the smoke formed the figure of a hand — the Nelvaanese "Holt Kazed" which Kenobi suddenly pulled Skywalker's right glove off, revealing the prosthetic replacement limb.
Skywalker was taken back into Orvos' cave, where bruise-leech crawlers were applied to his torso, arms, and face.
As the crawlers etched markings across Skywalker's body, Orvos instructed him on the path to choose, which was delivered in the form of cryptic sayings (metaphors) about the "mother's cry" (wind), "mother's tears" (rivers), "mother's mouth" (underworld cave) and "her inner flame" (subterranean forces).
Saddling his riding beast the next morning, Skywalker was approached by Kenobi, who informed him that his journey would serve as his final Jedi Trial, the Trial of the Spirit he had yet to face.
Skywalker, confident, assured his former master that he would not fail in his task.
As he moved deeper into the Nelvaanian wilderness, he remembered the first of Ovrvos' instructions: "you must follow the wind, for it is the mother's cry."
Doing so, Skywalker was led to a frozen river, which then followed in accordance with the next instruction, "travel her tears; they are frozen with fear" this in turn led the young Jedi to a cave, which correlated with Orvos' third and final instruction: "enter the mother's mouth, to awake her inner flame."
Dismounting from his riding beast, Skywalker explored the cave on foot, narrowly avoiding dangerous steam vents.
Anakin follows the wind and the frozen rivers to a cave.
As he cleared the steam that enshrouded the cave, he noticed that the walls were covered with Nelvaanian markings, depicting their culture suddenly, Skywalker began to experience a powerful vision through the Force.
As the vision moved into its final stage, Skywalker heard Amidala's voice cry out his name then Darth Vader appears in a cave drawing on Nelvaan.
Before he was sharply thrust back into reality.
When he awoke, Skywalker found himself on the edge of a large cavern, facing a gargantuan siphon generator of Confederate make, one which kept the planet shrouded in eternal winter.
Skywalker makes his way into the complex by climbing.
Climbing the cavern wall, Skywalker found himself in a Confederate installation, buried deep in the Nelvaanian rock.
Clandestinely infiltrating the facility, Skywalker overheard several of its Skakoan overseers discussing "experiments" initiated by Grievous.
Anakin soon chanced upon several Nelvaan warriors, stored in tanks, mutated to greatly increased sizes, and with blaster cannons in replacing their right arms.
The young Jedi then moved into the area in which the Nelvaanians were mutated — and watched on as the Techno Union scientists had an untainted Nelvaanian, named Harvos, prepared for the trans-formative process.
As the Nelvaanian's tank began to fill with the chemicals, Skywalker leaped into action, dispatching the droids guarding the area.
The engineer responded by activating a squad of the mutant Nelvaanians.
As they approached Skywalker and raised their weapons, the young Jedi pleaded for them to stop, as he did not wish to inflict any harm upon them.
Nonetheless, the mutated warriors opened fire on Skywalker, and he was forced to defend himself.
Anakin tries to fight off the Nelvaan mutants without hurting them.
Anakin sent them flying around the room with Force pushes.
The Jedi freed Nelvaan warriors, though the men initially turned to attack Skywalker.
Harvos, who was still being mutated at the time, was enraged by the plight of his fellow Nelvaanians, and broke out of the tank of his own accord.
Tackling one of his mutated tribesmen, Harvos pulled a strapped-on device off the Nelvaanian's chest, pulling them out of their mind-controlled stupor.
Harvos attempted to explain this to Skywalker, but he failed to catch on so Harvos demonstrated once more, and it was all the prompt the young Jedi needed to take his lightsaber to the devices, swiftly and surely subduing all of the mutants.
Skywalker cuts the rest of the cybernetic chestplates off with his lightsaber.
His tribesmen freed, Harvos instructed them to run rampant through the Confederate base.
Harvos pointed out to Skywalker the crystal in the middle of an energy chamber powering the installation. Immediately understanding the Nelvaanian, the young Jedi set about his new task.
Hurtling through the base, demolishing enemy droids as he went, Skywalker climbed to the top of the base's interior.
Skywalker gazes at the siphon generator.
Anakin leapt onto the main power generator's housing.
Skywalker leaps and slides to the top of the generator.
Skywalker lands atop of the siphon generator.
Anakin then lowers himself into the crystal chamber.
Hanging upside down from the housing, he realized that he would not be able to strike at the crystal, as it was guarded by some sort of protective field.
Anakin screams in agony as he reaches his prosthetic arm into the energy sphere.
Skywalker's arm blown off as an energy surge causes the generator to explode.
Other explosions rocked all around the base, and Skywalker narrowly avoided death by nimbly leaping away to safety.
Emerging from a fault in the ground, Skywalker saw the Skakoan engineers fleeing towards their Hardcell-class transport.
An enraged Skywalker clambers to the surface.
Anakin about to attack the Techno Union scientists.
Anakin Force throws using his "ghost hand".
Incensed by what he had witnessed in the base, the young Jedi sent the Skakoans flying using the truncated stump of his arm and the Force, pushing them off ravines and away from their escape craft.
Skywalker prevents the scientists from escaping.
Skywalker kills the last Techno Union scientist.
However, struggling with an ounce of his life, the head Skakoan attempted to pull his blaster on Skywalker, but the young Jedi, hearing the click of the blaster, rounded on him with a Force choke, damaging his pressure suit and causing his body to decompress.
Anakin gives into his hate striving closer to the dark side.
Skywalker regrets his murderous assault.
Seeing Skywalker's ravaged arm, the Nelvaan mutants worship him as "Holt Kezed" — "ghost hand" — their savior, and in solidarity they tear the implanted weapons from their own arms.
The Nelvaanians, seeing their savior bereft of his "ghost hand," pulled off their cannon-equipped replacement arms, mimicking Skywalker's new found disability they then saluted him, chanting "Holt Kazed" repeatedly.
Skywalker and the Nelvaanians return to the village.
Upon their return, their appearance startled the Nelvaanian women, but when Harvos' child recognized him, despite his gross mutation, the returned warriors were reconciled with their families which saddened Skywalker.
As the Nelvaanians celebrated that night, Skywalker opted to watch on, and Kenobi wished to discuss his experiences in the cave.
The young Jedi vaguely deflected the question, however, and questioned whether or not the Nelvaanians would ever be able to recover and Kenobi believed that they would, as long as they accepted themselves for what they were.
R2-D2 helps Skywalker repair his new arm.
Anakin, however, was well at ease with his mechno-arm, and tinkered with it adding strengthened alloy ligaments and armored shielding to bulk up his spindly robotic arm, giving the appearance of a well-muscled arm to match the rest of his toned body.
Anakin covered his new mechanical arm with a black glove.
Obi-Wan tells Anakin the most difficult trial a Jedi must face is to look inside oneself.
R2-D2 alerts Skywalker and Kenobi of an urgent message from Coruscant.

Anakin and Obi-Wan shocked by these turn of events.
Master Windu orders the Jedi to return immediately to Coruscant and must rescue Palpatine.
Skywalker snarls Grievous' name.
As Skywalker orders the cruiser into hyperspace, the Battle of Coruscant continues to rage around the ecumenopolis…
