It stars Greta Scacchi, Colin Firth, John Gielgud, Billie Whitelaw, Patrick Ryecart, Denholm Elliott and Ben Kingsley. The pod race sequence on Tatooine appears heavily influenced, if not lifted wholesale, from the chariot race in Ben-Hur. It was adapted by Blanche Hanalis and directed by Desmond Davis. While Akira Kurosawa's The Hidden Fortress has often been seen as a source of inspiration for Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, The Phantom Menace's middle section on Tatooine , with its series of non-violent bargaining and twists of chance, demonstrates the strongest correspondence to Japanese film in the saga. In 1984 a version of Camille was produced for television. Given Lucas' penchant for layered meanings in these movies, it is arguable that all these interpretations contain a grain of truth. It stars Carla Fracci. Whilst the heroes are focused on combating the threat to Naboo, they are unwitting pawns in a connivance of far greater scope.

It was adapted by Jean Aurenche, Enrico Medioli and Vladimir Pozner, and directed by Mauro Bolognini. The keystone of the plot is the plight of the Naboo arousing a sympathy vote in the Senate. A 1980 version, La Dame aux camélias, in French, was produced. In this sense, the key outcome of this movie is the elevation of Palpatine to the office of Chancellor - an outcome that would have resulted had the Trade Federation's gambit succeeded or failed. It stars Danièle Gaubert and Nino Castelnuovo. A further theory is based upon the understanding that the central menace of the movie, the Neimoidian dominated Trade Federation's blockade and invasion of Naboo, is itself nothing more than a phantom, a piece of political misdirection wrought by Darth Sidious as part of the machinations designed to bring about the ultimate victory of the Sith. It was adapted by Michael DeForrest and directed by Radley Metzger. So the 'phantom' in the title of Episode I could be referring to the Dark Lord of the Sith and ‘menace’ to the meaning of the name 'Sidious.' Another possible meaning of the title is a subtle indication at the ultimate outcome of the Saga--Anakin becomes Darth Vader.

In 1969, a drug-laced Italian language version called Camille 2000 was produced. (Of persons and things.). It stars Mona Maris. Full of wiles or plots; lying in wait or seeking to entrap or ensnare; proceeding or operating secretly or subtly so as not to excite suspicion; sly, treacherous, deceitful, underhand, artful, cunning, crafty, wily. In the same year, La Mujer de las camelias, an Argentine version was adapted by Alexis de Arancibia (as Wassen Eisen) and Ernesto Arancibia, and directed by Ernesto Arancibia. The Oxford English Dictionary gives following definition:. It was directed by Gavaldón, and stars María Félix. The title could also refer to the origin of Darth Sidious' name, which is the adjective 'insidious'.

A 1954 Mexican version, called Camelia was adapted by José Arenas, Edmundo Báez, Roberto Gavaldón and Gregorio Walerstein. It is usually suggested that the title refers to Darth Sidious, Darth Maul, or the Sith in general. It stars Gino Cervi, Micheline Presle and Roland Alexandre. There is a great deal of speculation as to what the title, "The Phantom Menace", refers to; the titles of the other films seem to generally be self-explanatory. A 1953 French version called La Dame aux camélias was adapted by Bernard Natanson and directed by Raymond Bernard. One, known as The Phantom Edit, is regarded as a superior version by many who have seen both. It was adapted by Roberto Tasker and directed by Gabriel Soria, and stars Lina Montes and Emilio Tuero. A number of people anonymously re-edited the film and released their edited versions over the Internet.

A 1944 Spanish language version was produced in Mexico. Many fans felt this was unnecessary and ruins an aspect of the saga which sets it apart from other popular sci-fi titles in which religion and spirituality are of little importance or totally absent. The movie was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress (Greta Garbo). The movie inspired Milton Benjamin to write and publish a song called "I'll Love Like Robert Taylor, Be My Greta Garbo". Another source of dissatisfaction comes from the decision to explain the Force in terms of hard science, hence the introduction of midi-chlorians. It stars Greta Garbo, Robert Taylor and Lionel Barrymore. Fan reaction was mixed. It was adapted by Zoe Akins, Frances Marion and James Hilton, and directed by George Cukor. Special venom was directed at the character of Jar Jar Binks, who was regarded by most of the older fan community as purely a merchandising opportunity rather than a serious character in the film.

Arguably the most famous version was the 1936 Hollywood version. Some aspects of the scripting were also criticised. It stars Yvonne Printemps and Pierre Fresnay. Many critics heavily criticized the direction and the acting of Portman and especially Jake Lloyd as the young Anakin Skywalker. It was adapted by Abel Gance and directed by Gance and Fernand Rivers. It was the first time a Star Wars film did not win that Oscar competition category. The first sound version was made in French in 1934, called La Dame aux camélias. This attitude was confirmed with the rival film, The Matrix, winning the visual effects Academy Award for 1999 over the Star Wars film.

There are no known copies of this film extant. The much-hyped special effects, while generally viewed as groundbreaking in their sheer scope, were perhaps less impressive than anticipated simply because of high expectations. It stars Norma Talmadge and Gilbert Roland. However, critical and fan reaction ranged from guarded praise to outright derision. It was directed by Fred Niblo. After an enormous marketing campaign, with the distinctive artwork of Star Wars series artist Drew Struzan gracing the movie poster and other advertising, there was almost unprecedented interest amongst both fans and the wider community in the return of one of the most successful movie series of all time. A 1926 version was adapted by Fred De Gresac, George Marion Jr., Olga Printzlau and Chandler Sprague. Filming was primarily done at Leavesden Studios in England, with additional location shooting in the Tunisian desert and the Italian palace Palazzo Reale, Caserta.

It stars Uno Henning and Tora Teje. The budget of Menace was US$115 million. A 1925 Swedish film called Damen med kameliorna was adapted and directed by Olof Molander. Queen Amidala presents a gift of appreciation and friendship to Boss Nass. It stars Alla Nazimova and Rudolph Valentino. The film closes with a large celebration of liberation from the Trade Federation on the planet of Naboo. Smallwood. Because there are only two Sith ever at any given time (a master and an apprentice), they believe that there is still another one out there.

A 1921 version was adapted by June Mathis and directed by Ray C. Qui-Gon is cremated, and Mace Windu and Yoda agree that his death was caused by the Sith. It stars Theda Bara, Alan Roscoe, Walter Law, Glen White, Alice Gale, Claire Whitney and Richard Barthelmess. Kenobi conveys his master’s wish regarding Anakin Skywalker to Yoda, who reluctantly allows him to become Obi-Wan’s apprentice. Gordon Edwards. After the battle, the Jedi Council names Obi-Wan a Jedi Knight. In 1917 an American film was made, adapted by Adrian Johnson and directed by J. Obi-Wan gives his word that he will train the boy.

It stars Hesperia, Alberto Collo and Ida Carloni Talli. Just before passing away, Qui-Gon instructs Obi-Wan to train Anakin to become a Jedi. It was directed by Baldassarre Negroni and Gustavo Serena. He kills Qui-Gon Jinn, but Obi-Wan Kenobi in turn slays Darth Maul. An Italian language film was also made in the same year, called La Signora delle camelie. At the same time, Darth Maul has been engaging in combat with the two Jedi. It was adapted by Frances Marion and directed by Albert Capellani, and stars Clara Kimball Young, Paul Capellani, Lillian Cook and Robert Cummings. However, victory is won when young Anakin Skywalker commandeers a fighter plane and destroys the Federation's droid command ship, rendering the droid army useless. Meanwhile, Queen Amidala and her force fight their way back into the palace and capture the leader of the Trade Federation.

In 1915, an English language film, the first one to use the name Camille, was made. After much fighting against the Federation's droid army, defeat for the alliance seems imminent. It stars Sarah Bernhardt. Queen Amidala, back in Naboo, forms an alliance with the Gungan people, uniting in battle against the Trade Federation. In 1910, a French language silent film was made, directed by André Calmettes and Henri Pouctal. She is frustrated by the Senate's deliberation and lack of action, and feels that by the time Palpatine is elected Chancellor it will be too late. The two Jedi accompany the Queen back to Naboo. Directed by Viggo Larsen, it stars Oda Alstrup, Larsen, Gustave Lund and Robert Storm Petersen. After doing so, the Queen decides to return to her home planet to repel the invasion of her people.

The first movie based on the work was a Danish silent film version in 1907 called Kameliadamen. Meanwhile, Senator Palpatine (of Naboo) uses Queen Amidala's situation to his advantage by persuading her to call a motion of no confidence in Chancellor Valorum so that he can get himself nominated as the new Chancellor. Like the novel, the films tell the story of gay romance in Paris in the 1840s, and one young woman who wins the heart of a wealthy young man, but gives him up for his own good. They are also concerned due to their sense of what seems to be a cloudy future and a strong presence of fear in the boy. The novel was also the basis for Giuseppe Verdi's opera La Traviata. After testing the boy and deliberating with one another, the Council refuses, deeming him too old for training according to Jedi Code. Camille is the name of several films based on the 1852 novel and play La Dame aux Camélias by Alexandre Dumas, fils. Qui-Gon also informs the Council about Anakin, hoping that he can be trained as a Jedi.

Because of his mastery of the Jedi arts, the Council becomes concerned that this may indicate the reappearance of the Sith, a long-gone religious order who followed the Dark Side of the Force. On Coruscant, Qui-Gon Jinn informs the Jedi Council of the mysterious attacker he encountered on Tatooine. Maul appears just as the group is leaving the planet, and fights Qui-Gon, who then manages to escape on the ship. Meanwhile, Darth Sidious sends his apprentice, Darth Maul, to kill the two Jedi and capture the Queen.

Anakin wins the race and joins the team as they head for Coruscant, where Qui-Gon plans to seek permission from the Jedi Council to train him to be a Jedi. By entering Anakin into a podrace, Qui-Gon orchestrates a gamble in which the boy will be released from slavery and they will win the needed parts for their ship. Qui-Gon Jinn senses a strong presence of the Force in Anakin, and feels that he may be the Chosen One who will fulfill a prophecy by bringing balance to the Force. Anakin is gifted with piloting and mechanics (he has built an almost-complete droid named C-3PO).

While searching for needed parts, they befriend young Anakin Skywalker, a slave boy, whose master is Watto, an alien junk dealer. Due to the attack, however, the ship is forced to land on the desert planet of Tatooine for repairs. A droid named R2-D2 heroically repairs the Queen's starship as they narrowly escape an attack from the Federation base ship. They depart for Coruscant, the Galactic Republic’s capital planet, to ask for help from the Senate.

The Jedi, with Jar Jar Binks in tow, reach the capital of Naboo and rescue Queen Amidala from the Trade Federation droid army. The Jedi meet the Gungan leader, Boss Nass, and ask him to help the people of Naboo, but Nass refuses and sends them off in a submarine. Meanwhile, the Trade Federation invades Naboo and captures their leader, Queen Padmé Amidala. On the planet's surface, the Jedi meet local native outcast Jar Jar Binks, who brings them to an underwater Gungan settlement to escape the Trade Federation army.

Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan escape the assassination attempt by the Federation and flee to the surface of Naboo. Unbeknownst to them, the Trade Federation is in league with the mysterious Darth Sidious, who secretly orders an invasion of Naboo and the killing of the two Jedi upon their arrival. Chancellor Valorum of the Galactic Republic secretly sends two Jedi Knights, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn, to resolve the dispute. It is the year 32 BBY (or, 32 years prior to Episode IV), and a trade dispute between the Trade Federation and the planet of Naboo has led to a blockade of the planet.


. It is the first in a trilogy of films that function as a prequel to the original trilogy of Star Wars films and, in chronological story order, the first in a six-part saga. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace is a 1999 film by George Lucas starring Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, and Jake Lloyd. Funny, because at the part of the song where Darth Vader is rising in Episode III, Obi-Wan tells Anakin that he'll be a Jedi.

At Qui-Gon's funeral pyre, a song from Episode III is heard. At the end of the credits, following the last notes of the song, Darth Vader can be heard breathing in the background while the screen is pitch black. The scene is included among the deleted scenes on the DVD release. A Greedo scene was shot but deleted from the theatrical version of the film.

Famous characters from the original trilogy that make their first chronological appearance in this movie include C-3PO, Bib Fortuna, Jabba the Hutt, Obi-wan Kenobi, Palpatine, R2-D2, Anakin Skywalker, and Yoda.
