Watched Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999) from Disney+
Directed by George Lucas. With Ewan McGregor, Liam Neeson, Natalie Portman, Jake Lloyd. Two Jedi escape a hostile blockade to find allies and come across a young boy who may bring balance to the Force, but the long dormant Sith resurface to claim their old glory.

Thought I’d go back and re-watch the canon in story-time chronological order.

I’m still not happy with the heavy handed stereotyping that occurs in this film. I’m still not a Jar Jar fan either. He and Anakin benefit from far too much deus ex machina in this episode.

Rating: ★★½
