Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

"This is my apprentice, Darth Maul. He will find your lost ship." Not long after mentioning that the first 3D trailer for the re-release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace would be playing in front of The Three Musketeers in a few weeks, an official poster has popped up as well. Revealed by Bleeding Cool, this official poster features a very prominent Darth Maul (obviously one of the best parts of seeing this in 3D) and an updated logo for next year's 3D release. Thankfully Jar Jar is nowhere to be found, but besides Yoda and Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan, neither is Qui-Gon Jinn or Padmé either. Check this out below!

This is the biggest we could find, click to be taken to the original. We'll updated with high res when we can.

Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 3D Poster

George Lucas' Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, originally released in late May of 1999, will be re-released in digital 3D in theaters everywhere starting February 10th early next year. This is the first of six planned re-releases for the entire Star Wars saga, progressing in numerical order (as long as this one is a success). Set against the thrilling and exotic backdrop of a "galaxy far, far away," Star Wars is perfectly suited to the immersive 3D theatrical experience, and Episode I delivers some of the Saga's most stunning and spectacular sequences – from the Naboo invasion to the Tatooine Podraces to the climactic lightsaber battle between Darth Maul and the Jedi. The 3D conversion was supervised by Industrial Light & Magic.

Jar Jar Binks IN YOUR FACE 3D for 15 dollars... yea, who wouldn't pass that up-right? >_>

Nick S. on Oct 13, 2011


Totally couldn't pass it up! The sheer artistic prowess of such a character doing flips into a lake is something I could never pass up! Say that with a straight face.

Xerxexx on Oct 13, 2011


If you go by the Plinkett Test, Jar Jar is probably the best character in the first film. The rest of them just kinda stand around being emotionless for most of the film.

Look!  People are complaining...  Like they always do

Coastermaniac on Oct 13, 2011


That surprises you?

Xerxexx on Oct 13, 2011


This poster is literally a few screen grabs from the film photoshopped into a box with some really bad glow / shadow and LENZFLA1RD to death. Not only could a child have made this poster, I would wager that your average teenager could have made a better one. If this just randomly popped up on a search and not on several film news websites, I would have immediately thought it was a fake made by a child.

9 usually not one to complain either....but that design looks like one of those kids books with the stickers, and they can just put the stickers wherever they want on the pages....yeah

... love the film, but this poster is ridiculous...

Yahzee on Oct 13, 2011


I've always hated how the Star Wars marketing department promotes Darth Maul as a major character. He's in, like, 15 minutes of one movie. I'm only angry because I wanted him to be a major character. Besides that, I'm going to see it for the pod races and final lightsaber battle. Haters gonna hate...and still go to see it.

Totylertarian on Oct 13, 2011


But he does kill a major character in the movie. So the limelight. But I agree its a bit too much to give him so much space on the poster.

A+, champagne comedy

Where the hell is Qui-Gon?

Johnis on Oct 13, 2011


I wonder if in this version, every time something goes wrong with his pod in the big Pod Race, Anakin screams, "Nnnnnnnnnoooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!" And also when he has to leave his mother. And when Mace and Yoda say he won't be a Jedi. And when he finds out Padme was just pretending to be a servant who liked cleaning astromech droids and making inappropriate google-eyes at 8-year-old boys. Should I go on, or...?

Ugh. Groan Messa gonna avoid disss.

Guest007 on Oct 13, 2011


They should've commissioned Drew Struzan to do a new poster. This one looks like something from a high school Intro to Photoshop class, awful.

Jar Jar Binks is a total BAMF

scuba steve on Oct 13, 2011


Too bad the film isn't a representation of this poster (no jar jar and a lot darth maul)

Ryderup on Oct 14, 2011


Lame poster for such a lame movie.  (there's a few good scenes, but come on)

Posthuman on Oct 14, 2011


DAMIN IT!!!....   To quote R. Kelly: "my mind's tellin me nooooooo.... "  Yet I find my self knowingly drawn to it like a moth to a Zap Lamp. Couldnt they just do the Phantom Edit in 3D???? *ugh

Anonymous on Oct 14, 2011


Obviously, you guys don't know your expanded universe very well...Darth Maul is a major player and Lucas has been quoted as saying "If I knew he was going to be so popular, I wouldn't have killed him off."  This will be interesting for a couple of reasons...first all the kids who love Star Wars now, but never got to see it in theaters will have the the pod race alone in 3D will be amazing.   Personally, I loathe 3D, but will take my 12 year old son to see them because he is a bigger fan than I ever was!
