    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Newsreel:
        A calculated risk! Following a costly victory on the planet Malastare, Chancellor Palpatine orders Jedi Knights Mace Windu and Anakin Skywalker to transport a fearsome Zillo beast captured during the battle back to Coruscant. After seeing that not even a lightsaber could harm the beast, Chancellor Palpatine hopes to unlock the secret of its invulnerability to create new armor for the Republic's clone troopers. Tensions run high as the most dangerous life form in the galaxy touches down on its most populous planet.

        Jedi Fortune Cookie: "The most dangerous beast is the beast within."

      • King Kong:
        The Zillo Beast is similar to the famous giant gorilla. For starters, the concept of a creature who was the most powerful being in their own world, only to be captured and taken to a foreign land and eventually escape. Also, the Zillo Beast rampaging through Coruscant in search of Palpatine is similar to Kong's search for Fay. The only real difference is that Kong did it out of desire while the Zillo Beast was driven by hatred for the Chancellor. The Zillo Beast climbing on top of the senate building and capturing the craft containing Palpatine is just like when Kong climbed the Empire State Building after abducting Fay. Most of all, the Zillo Beast's death was similar to that of King Kong, with the clone ships circling it while bombarding it with poison in place of planes shooting at King Kong.
