Publisher's descriptionEdit

One of the most action-packed sequences in Attack of the Clones takes place in the Geonosian execution arena. Anakin Skywalker, Padmé Amidala and Obi-Wan Kenobi are attacked by a trio of vicious arena beasts, and must rely on their wits to survive. The surprise arrival of Jedi reinforcements leads to a chaotic battle between Jedi, battle droids, Geonosians and arena monsters. The excitement is captured in Battle in the Arena, a 24-page storybook by Justine and Ron Fontes.
