Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace
Jeff and I have embarked on a cinematic journey through the Star Wars saga, watching every movie in the chronological order of the story, starting with The Phantom Menace. We delve into our favorite parts, the aspects that didn’t quite hit the mark, and the film’s place within the grand tapestry of the Star Wars narrative. We specifically focused on the stories we wished the movie had told more deeply—the onset of the Republic’s decline and Anakin’s descent—and discuss why targeting a younger audience may not have been the most fitting choice for these darker themes.
We’ve started the conversation. Now we want to hear from you!
