phantom menace

good things about the prequels
  • liam neeson
  • omg so many robots
    • literal war hero r2d2??
  • ewan mcgregor
    • the fact that he couldn’t stop making light saber noises
    • is he supposed to look so jesus-y or is it just a beautiful coincidence?
  • the literal one scene in phantom menace without any CGI
  • the music
    • @ john williams haters: FIGHT ME
  • “lost a planet, master obi-wan has. how embarrassing.”
  • christopher lee’s voice
  • “good call, my young padawan”
    • a line that was made to be giffed
  • yoda’s “i fuckin told u” face every time anakin does something dumb
  • hayden christensen’s hair, once he gets rid of that dumb braid
  • the complete lack of subtlety in character names
    • “count dooku” is the most evil name i have ever heard
    • “general grievous” and “lord sidious” are tied for second
    • “darth plagueis?” are you kidding?
  • that part where r2 screams and runs into the wall
  • like 5 whole seconds in revenge of the sith where everyone is happy
  • obi-wan abandoning cloaks wherever he goes
  • sometimes you just need a lil’ angst in your life

Ted the Animator: “And flirting with Daphne, who’s waaaaay older than hi– holy crap, this *is* Phantom Menace.

Carl the Animator: “There’s no slight-of-hand to the trick, he just makes the bottle disappear and the flower appear. It’s almost like–”

Ted the Animator: “WHOA! In the wide shot he made Daphne disappear!

Carl the Animator: “Well, it–”

Ted the Animator: “Is the kid teleporting Daphne a plot point? Is he actually magical, and connected to that tentacle-hair ghost from earlier? I’m kinda on board with this character now.”

Carl the Animator: “…no, I just forgot to put Daphne in the scene.”

Ted the Animator: “…oh.”

Carl the Animator: “Yeah.”

Ted the Animator: “…well. No teleportation, then?”

Carl the Animator: “Nah, he’ll have to be trained by Obi-Wan before he learns how to do that.”
