Attack of the Clone[d room]

Attack of the Clone[d room]

That George Lucas is so clever. Not only was there the obvious cloning in his latest installment in the Star Wars saga: “Episode II: Attack of the Clones,” but there was the subtle cloning going on in the sets. Or was there?

Oops, it seems the Jedi library in the movie is almost an exact replica of the Long Room Library of Trinity College in Dublin. And they’re not happy about it. The college has called in Darth Sidious and his apprentices… I mean, their lawyers. I didn’t know you could copyright a room, but there you go. The linked page has photos of the two “rooms.” I don’t see how you can deny they’re the same room, but the Lucas spokesman does so anyway.
