I remembered 19 years ago on ET (Entertainment Weekly live) and in magazines that Lucas was gonna write a new prequel trilogy and i was excited especially when i saw that video of Lucas getting an idea to do the trilogy. In 97 after the special edition releases in theaters they announced the name of the movie on the internet and air waves as i was 15/16 and said "What does Phantom Menace mean? hmm strange title" and in 98 when i was 17 i remembered being pumped up for the trailer as i hadn't welled up in a long time as i grew up with the old school trilogy and had a glow in my heart about it with excitement as i always wanted another one since the 80s. I remembered seeing Pleasantville in theaters as heard the teaser was gonna play and i went in to see the teaser as i was gasping and saying yay. I even saw the trailers on the internet and all that as i was smiling with joy and it was gonna be my number one movie of 1999 and everyone else who loved the old movies. I skipped school as did a few of my friends as we went to one of the 3 malls in my city being one of the major malls and were in line as i couldn't believe the day to be when i saw a new SW movie in theaters as the only ones i saw in theaters were the special edition version of the OT. I couldn't believe it once i went in to finally see it as i remembered the previews especially to Tarzan and all as i couldn't wait to see that and then the Lucasfilm logo as we all cheered as i was wearing a Darth Vader shirt and all as the opening scroll and some people were freaking out with the joy. Then the movie started and when Jar Jar came to the scene i said "What? I've got a terrible feeling about this" as i was right as there was a glow from my heart then fall down into the stomach then i decided "Maybe i can go see it again and see if on a repeated viewing" as i was very disappointed in the film but had to see it again and again yet it was not growing on me but still a bummer i tell you.
