Five new posters for Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace 3D

Jan. 13, 2012by: Alex Riviello

These five new posters for STAR WARS: EPISODE I THE PHANTOM MENACE 3D have just been released, coming to us from Kino Gallery. 

Surprisingly, not one of these feature Jar Jar! Four of the five feature Darth Maul though, a much more minor character that was utterly meaningless to the whole thing. He did look cool, though.

STAR WARS: EPISODE I THE PHANTOM MENACE 3D is hitting theaters on February 10th. Anyone plan on attending, or learn from your mistakes, have you?

Oh. My. GOD.

Aside from the podracing one (which is a nice, clean image), these are literally some of the most amateurish posters I have ever seen...ESPECIALLY when put in comparison to the striking teaser and the Drew Struzan one-sheet that were used for the initial release.

Why did they use such gratuitous warp tool effects on Darth Maul's eyes in the first one?

Why does the second one even exist? It is essentially doing what Struzan did, only 10 times worse.

In the fourth one, how the hell is

In the fourth one, how the hell is Darth Maul cutting the sheet metal in front of him? His lightsaber (according to how he is holding the handle) should be pointing straight upwards, not forwards.

And if Darth Maul's eye is in the montage inside the lightsaber in the last one, who is holding the lightsaber? And seeing as the rest of the hand isn't on the right of the lightsaber, where the hell are the fingers coming from?

Come on. Details matter.

I am one of the rare people who, despite the glaring flaws, likes the prequels just as much as the originals. I would love to see them in theaters again. But if the 3D transfer is as lazy and as shockingly awful as these posters, I will gladly sit this one out.

Thank God for the people going to the movie theater... for a second I thought Lucas was going to stop all this re-editing BS! Thank you fans for keeping the man's business alive! Who needs a real new take on the Star Wars universe anyway? It's not like you could expand the story and leave room for more creative minds to explore it...

Hate all you want..

I'm a Star Wars fan. No, I'm not being fooled by George Lucas into filling his pockets. I enjoy all 6 movies. Of course I enjoy IV-VI the most but that doesn't change that I'll be at the midnight showings for all 6 movies.

It didn't feel like a mistake when I saw it eleven times back in 1999, not does it sure doesn't feel like a mistake now. Midnight showing for me.

Ahh the misleading Darth Maul poster, how I've missed you! It still doesn't look like a film about an "intergalactic trade dispute".

Darth Maul everywhere, is it 1999 again?

Why is Darth Maul in all of the posters? Yeah, he was the coolest thing about the movie, even if in retrospect he didn't do that much, but still, he was in it for 5 fraking minutes! Does Lucas think we forgot all about that travesty? It might have worked in the 90s, but this shit won't fly today Gorgie boy! LOL!

Maul Poster

"Hey Ted, we need another poster for Phantom Menace. Can you rip off something that came out this past summer?"
"How about Thor?"
"That'll do."
