Synopsis

A decade on from the franchise restart, George Lucas returns to where it all began with Star Wars: Episode I ? The Phantom Menace, aka I Was A Pre-Teen Sith Lord. We meet future Darth Vader Anakin Skywalker as a young boy selected for training in the Jedi arts by difficult-to-pronounce master Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) and his apprentice Obi Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor). But there are rumblings in the Force as Sith Lord Darth Sidious and his devilish acolyte Darth Maul create interplanetary chaos by invading the planet Naboo, governed by young Queen Amidala (Natalie Portman). Revisit Anakin's journey to the dark side and see the (profit) margins of cinema extended in jar-jarringly forceful 3D.
