Luminara was invited to a lot of big meetings, but it seems she was never invited to join the Jedi Council. Maybe it was because her apprentice turned out to be a traitorous terrorist?
In Episode II, Anakin loses his (1), gets a replacement (2), and also uses Obi-Wan's (3). In Episode III, Anakin has a new lightsaber (4), also uses Count Dooku's (5), and briefly switches with Obi-Wan (6) during their duel.

Aurra Sing appeared briefly in Episode I, watching the pod race. Concept art labeled her as "Babe Fett."
Three planets appear in Episode I, and another two appear in Episode II. Episode III adds another nine(!) and holds the record for most planets in an Episode, with a total of 12.

In both of the other prequels, the line was said by Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The prequels didn't have a Millennium Falcon, but what they did have was Padmé's seemingly endless array of chrome Naboo "cruisers," "barges," and "yachts."

Obi-Wan may have served Bail Organa during the Clone Wars, but apparently he didn't visit very often.

The Rebel general is one of the only characters, ships, and concepts to have not made some form of background appearance in the prequels.
"At last we shall reveal ourselves to the Jedi. At last we shall have revenge.""I will find your lost ship.""Yes, my master.""Join me, and together we can destroy the Sith.""Wipe them out. All of them.""Tatooine is sparsely populated.""Are you threatening me, Master Jedi?"
"Tatooine is sparsely populated."
Darth Maul had a whopping three lines in Episode I. For all of them, actor Ray Park was dubbed over by Peter Serafinowicz.

Padmé wore six dresses as the Queen (another two were worn by her decoy), and three more when in disguise as a handmaiden. Fun fact: Padmé wore a total of THIRTY THREE costumes during the prequel trilogy.

Many people lost limbs, heads, and other appendages in the prequels, but Master Jinn wasn't one of them. He still died, though.
Obi-Wan may have never owned a droid, but at least two were assigned to him by the Jedi Order. The first was the red-colored R4-P17, who traveled with him to Kamino and Geonosis, and perished at the start of Episode III (R.I.P.).
While nothing was filmed in New Zealand, the actors who played Jango Fett, Boba Fett, Taun We, Captain Typho, and Queen Apailana were all from there.
Jedi InterceptorsLucasfilm / Via images.wikia.comARC-170sNaboo N1 Starfighters
None of them.
Blue doesn't seem to be a popular color for laser cannons on starfighters, but the Republic's capital ships shoot blue lasers.
Artoo co-piloted Anakin's N1 Starfighter in Episode I, Padmé's N1 Starfighter in Episode II, and both of Anakin's Jedi Interceptors in Episode III.
"Love won't save you, Padmé. Only my new powers can do that.""Here, everything is soft... and smooth.""I'm haunted by the kiss that you should never have given me.""Oh no, I'd be too frightened to tease a senator!""Being around you again is intoxicating.""Are you an angel?""You are so... beautiful.""You love me? I thought we had decided not to fall in love.""Your presence is soothing."
"Being around you again is intoxicating."
In Episode II, Anakin told Obi-Wan that being around Padmé again was intoxicating, but he saved the more disastrous lines for the lady herself.

The mysterious Chancellor's aide was played by Sandi Finlay. The other characters were played by Lucasfilm employees, including George Lucas himself as Baron Papanoida!

Padmé started her career as an Apprentice Legislator, was elected Princess of Theed, then Queen of Naboo. After that, she was appointed Senator by the new Queen. However, because her marriage was secret, she was never officially known as "Padmé Skywalker."

He might have been one of the most senior members of the Jedi Order, but Ki-Adi-Mundi's name wasn't mentioned once in films. However, he is at least remembered fondly in some circles as "Conehead Jedi."

The Archduke of Geonosis gave the plans to Count Dooku in Episode II, during the first battle of the Clone Wars.

To turn off the battle droids.
It's not clear when Vader did this, as Padmé and Obi-Wan arrived immediately after this was said, but there weren't any battle droids in the original trilogy!
No one knows how or why Leia remembers her mother and Luke doesn't when Luke was born first, but just go with it, okay? The answer to every plot hole is, "The Force!"

Threepio gets the last line of the prequel trilogy: "Oh, no." This is an homage to the original trilogy, in which he gets the first line ("Did you hear that?").
