When Episode II was about to arrive on DVD, the Internet buzzed with rumors and discussion as to what deleted material was going to resurface. One heavily reported false rumor "confirmed" that the raid on the Droid Control Ship would indeed make the cut. As it appeared in the shooting script, the scene involved Ki-Adi-Mundi and Plo Koon leading an attack on a Droid Control Ship in order to disable the battle droid forces overwhelming the Jedi in the Geonosian execution arena. The raiding party makes its way to the bridge of the Trade Federation craft, and shuts down the droids, only to discover that their efforts were in vain. When the eight scenes included on the DVD were announced, there was some disappointment and confusion as to why this much talked about sequence was left off. "It added another story to be intercut with what already was becoming too complicated and time consuming for the climax of the movie," explained editor Ben Burtt. "Including the sequence also meant time needed to set it up and resolve it while the arena battle and the Clone War land battle proceeded simultaneously."
