Happy 20th Birthday – Star Wars Episode I – The Phantom Menace

20 years ago today The Phantom Menace opened to huge anticipation and crowds, as the Star Wars journey continued after a 16 year hiatus with the story of Anakin Skywalker. Love it, or loathe it, elements of The Phantom Menace are truly stunning, despite Jar Jar Binks and some weak script development. And I for one remember the pure emotion and excitement of seeing the Star Wars titles back on the big screen after such a long wait. We will be revisiting the prequels in a new retrospective feature later this year.
