In 1999, the dark times for Star Wars fans came to an end. George Lucas, inspired by the work of Steven Spielberg on Jurassic Park, decided that technology had caught up to his vision for the Prequels. When the movie was released the reaction of the public was varied to say the least.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Bruce Gibson, John Mills and Michael Schindler to talk about The Phantom Menace. We look back at our Episode I experiences, going backward in the timeline, new and old, Qui-Gon, Ewan McGregor, Yoda, symbiosis, music, production and our final thoughts.
