“Fear is the path to the dark side…” Time to return to that galaxy far, far away. 20th Century has revealed a brand new trailer for the 25th anniversary re-release of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace in theaters this May. This highly anticipated prequel in the Star Wars series opened in the summer of 1999, some 25 years ago, and the hype was through the roof. I remember waiting in line just to get tickets, and all the mania waiting for it to open. Then everyone went to see it and did not like it. Now all these years later, is it time for a re-appraisal? In The Phantom Menace, two Jedi escape a hostile blockade and come across a young boy who may bring balance to the Force, but the long dormant Sith resurface to claim their original glory. We’re introduced to Anakin, Jar Jar, Qui Gon, Amidala, Shmi, Valorum, and many others in this sci-fi spectacle. Starring Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, Jake Lloyd, Ian McDiarmid, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Pernilla August, & Frank Oz. There are a few exceptional moments in this, mainly the pod race and Duel of the Fates. Will you see it again? “Every generation has a legend…”

Here’s the 2024 trailer for George Lucas’ Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, via Twitter:

While the ruthless Trade Federation ravage the peaceful planet of Naboo, Jedi Master Qui Gon Jinn and his apprentice Obi Wan Kenobi are sent to rescue and protect the young Queen Amidala, who is determined to convince the Senate to help her restore peace to her home. Escaping to the planet Tatooine, the Jedi come across an eager slave boy named Anakin Skywalker who dreams of becoming a Jedi. What they don’t know however is that they are being used in a sinister plot by the mysterious Sith, hiding deep in the shadows. Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace is both written and directed by the American filmmaker / writer / producer George Lucas, his first time back directing Star Wars since A New Hope in 1977, as well as THX 1138 and American Graffiti previously.
