What if Star Wars Episode I Were Good?

I worked late tonight and lacked the brain power to finish this week’s post. But I won’t leave you empty-handed! A commenter, Chris, recently shared this video on my post about George Lucas. Michael of BelatedMedia narrates his version of The Phantom Menace, which, frankly, is better than what we actually got.

Enjoy – and tune in next week, ’cause we’ll be talking about censorship in honor of Banned Books Week!

  1. Sounds better to me, but his idea of Episode II is even better, I think: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAbug3AhYmw
    Makes much more sense and has the needed character-development!

    • He definitely added a lot by changing Naboo to Alderaan, and Obi Wan’s story is still very good. I think a couple parts were a little weak. It didn’t really make sense to me that Amidala could excuse herself from important political discussions to give a tour to some friends – but it would make sense for them to need a tour if they were there to provide security. So that should have happened some other time. And I didn’t see why Dooku (SP?) had to sacrifice himself. Otherwise, though, I love this guy. He’s so entertaining! Can’t wait for III.
