Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace Releases New 3D Poster

by at . Comments

After releasing his entire Star Wars Saga on Blu-Ray, George Lucas is rereleasing his catalog in 3D. Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace gets the first 3D go around and Lucasfilm has released a new and improved poster for the film. And by improved, we mean it is missing something completely.

Notice it? On the original poster (below), front and center is our little boy Darth Vader, aka Anakin Skywalker. He’s completely gone from the new 3D poster for Phantom Menace in lieu of pumping up the Darth Maul character (rightfully so!).

Audiences' opinion on the first chapter in the Star Wars series has divided fans since it debuted. Regardless of where you sit on that side of the fence, seeing Phantom Menace in 3D, at least visually, should be astounding.

Also gone from the film's original poster are Liam Neeson and Natalie Portman. Brought to the forefront in the 3D poster for Phantom Menace are C3PO and R2D2. Interesting choice, indeed.

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace Quotes

Queen Amidala: You're a slave?
Anakin: I'm a person and my name is Anakin.

Anakin: Are you an angel?
Queen Amidala: What?
Anakin: An angel. I've heard the deep space pilots talk about them. They live on the moons of Iego, I think. They're the most beautiful creatures in the universe.
Queen Amidala: You're a funny little boy. How do you know so much?
Anakin: I listen to all the traders and star pilots who come through here. I'm a pilot, you know, and someday I'm going to fly away from this place.
