The Phantom Menace Novelization Review

n4722

The first 2 chapters are all about Anakin Skywalker as a young slave boy on Tattooine.  These scenes could have really helped the film establish Anakin as the main character in this movie.

Many people loved the film, some of my fellow hardcore Star Wars fans did not for various reasons. I am not writing this blog to debate how good or bad it was, or to nitpick at it’s flaws. My main purpose for this blog post is to highlight my extreme joy, mixed with some trepidation on where Star Wars is heading. I feel it is crucial to explain my history with Star Wars, so that the reader can understand where I am coming from.
