20 Years Ago Today: We returned to a galaxy far, far away

Star Wars Episode I The Phantom Menace

We waited 16 years…for this?

Even Ani and Padme had their doubts

Sure, The Phantom Menace featured one of the coolest-looking Star Wars villains ever, but then he was (supposedly) killed at the end. A couple of spoilers there I guess, sorry.

Darth Maul

And then there was Jar Jar Binks.

What was George Lucas thinking?

MONEY

Yeah, that’s what he was thinking.

Star Wars movies

The Phantom Menace is now 20 years old. I’m glad George sold the rights to Disney, and I’m glad JJ Abrams gave us The Force Awakens in 2015 and will bring us The Rise of Skywalker later this year. Let’s not talk about The Last Jedi. Ever. Please. Thank you.
