16 years after The Return of the Jedi (1983), George Lucas returns to the Star Wars (SW) franchise by presenting us with Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999). Now Episode I is not my favorite nor is it a complete masterpiece but it is a great start. As a Star Wars fan and movie buff, I was able to immerse myself into a mind-blowing experience that only George Lucas to create. The visuals and special effects are stunning, the main cast performed their roles beautifully, and the music was magnificent. Not only did Episode I live up the legacy of the first trilogy but like its predecessors, it further pushed the boundaries of how sci-fi films are made and look.
