Behind the scenesEdit
The idea of "the carbonite infiltration maneuver", with the Jedi sneaking into Separatists territory by freezing themselves in carbonite to get past droid bio scans and radiation beams was adapted by Henry Gilroy from the original draft of Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode "Destroy Malevolence", where it was originally going to be used to sneak aboard Malevolence.
