Answer: Trinity College Library

In Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, the massive Jedi Archive–a repository of Jedi knowledge and their equivalent of a national archive–plays a pivotal roll in alerting the protagonists of the movie that a conspiracy may be afoot. Keen eyed viewers might have found themselves experiencing Déjà vu when gazing upon the sweeping views of the Jedi Archive–a case of Déjà vu well grounded, in fact.

The Jedi Archives in Episode II are an almost perfect digital recreation of the famous and stunning Long Room of the Trinity College Library in Dublin, Ireland. The level of detail in the recreation extends right down to replacing the busts of of Trinity Alumni with busts from Star Wars universe characters and Star Wars luminaries like George Lucas and John Knoll.
