The build-up to this film was an epic adventure in and of itself: Lynne's Diaries on the website, the fast food tie-ins, Duel of the Fates, the soda cans, the toys. The teaser trailer that is absolutely perfect, opening slowly with that clouded swamp, then exploding with Johnny Williams' theme set over the podrace. I don't think the excitement and anticipation before this film can ever be repeated.

I saw it in '99 just once. I liked it, but after Episode II was released I sort of dismissed it as the necessary 'introduction film.' Looking at it now without critical opinion, I can only admire Lucas' fight to be entirely independent. He's not a sellout as some will say. He hasn't 'lost touch' with Star Wars. He has simply made a movie exactly as he wanted it. In his first Star Wars outline, the story is narrated by the padawaan to the revered Jedi-Bendu, Mace Windy. This is the story that Lucas has always wanted to tell. It's not about flat dialogue and Jar Jar's antics; it's about themes, and to appreciate those themes you have to look at Kurosawa's films, Joseph Campbell's analysis of mythology, the Republic serials of the 40s and 50s, and Lucas' mentality after the Vietnam War and dealing with the Hollywood system.

I love Episode I. I think it's a fantastic story. It's George Lucas' story, and it has been a blast to go along for the ride.

Topeka,

Afreakingmen!

TPM is pretty much what got me into Star Wars. I'd seen the trilogy a lot as a kid and thought they were cool movies but couldn't understand why some folks were so obsessed. After seeing TPM for the very first time, it totally clicked. How did things ever get so bad that Obi-Wan had to fuck Anakin up and throw his ass into a lava pit? How did the Emperor take over the Republic? What were the Jedi like in their prime?

Those were questions I always had after seeing the OT. TPM either answered or began answering all those questions.

Like everybody, I was blown away by the sheer volume of detail packed into just about every shot. Almost every single set up had some CG enhancement or some hidden detail that made an already cool shot even cooler.

When the gang made it to Coruscant, what was left of my mind was officially blown.

To me, action movies (and maybe filmmaking in general) fit into one of two categories.

01- Pre-TPM
02- Post-TPM

Lucas revolutionized filmmaking with ANH back in 1977. Then he did the same thing all over again with TPM in 1999.

The prequels rock!

I had the opportunity to buy the Starship for $50 during the Great Blowout of 2000 at Toys 'R' Us. I passed and bought up the $1.50 basic figures instead. It is a cool looking display piece though, and it is huge. Due to storage limitations I've been opening/selling some of my older stuff. The Droid Fighter trio is now chasing (hanging from the ceiling) Anakin's Podracer around my home.

To hell with haters, it’s still my favorite prequel! That was such an exciting time when it felt like the whole world were Star Wars fans. Happy 20th, Phantom Menace!

Lucas' purest expression of Star Wars.

Happy 20th!

"The Phantom Menace is one of the most influential movies of the last two decades," says Golding.

"Motion capture performance, green screens, even the word 'prequel' — all of these things owe a huge debt to The Phantom Menace. When I look around at today's blockbusters, I see complex seriality everywhere, I see CGI everywhere, I see motion capture performance everywhere. All of this is the shadow of The Phantom Menace."

Looking back, Franklin says people are beginning to view the film in a different light.

"It's both a cautionary tale and misunderstood. Lucas made the film he very much wanted to make, expectations be damned, and so the auteurism of these films is now being reassessed and appreciated," says Franklin.

"It's especially important now as the last two years has seen the rise of what is a growing issue of the line that filmmakers have to walk between what's good for the story and what's good for the fans."
