Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

Synopsis: The evil Trade Federation, led by Nute Gunray is planning to take over the peaceful world of Naboo. Jedi Knights Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi are sent to confront the leaders. But not everything goes to plan. The two Jedi escape, and along with their new Gungan friend, Jar Jar Binks head to Naboo to warn Queen Amidala, but droids have already started to capture Naboo and the Queen is not safe there. Eventually, they land on Tatooine, where they become friends with a young boy known as Anakin Skywalker. Qui-Gon is curious about the boy, and sees a bright future for him. The group must now find a way of getting to Coruscant and to finally solve this trade dispute, but there is someone else hiding in the shadows. Are the Sith really extinct? Is the Queen really who she says she is? And what's so special about this young boy?

- I don't know.

But we must move quickly to disrupt

all communications down there.

Negotiations haven't started

because the ambassadors aren't there?

How could that be true?

I have assurances from the chancellor

his ambassadors did arrive.

It must... handiwork...

negotiate... ambassadors...

- nobody would...

- Senator Palpatine.

What's happening?

Check the transmission generator.

A communications disruption

can mean only one thing: Invasion.

The Federation

would not dare go that far.

The senate would revoke their trade

franchise, and they'd be fnished.

We must continue to rely

on negotiation.


We've lost all communications.

And where are

the chancellor's ambassadors?

This is a dangerous situation,

Your Highness.

Our security volunteers

will be no match...

against a battle-hardened

Federation army.

I will not condone a course of action

that will lead us to war.

- Yes, Viceroy?

- Captain, we've searched the ship...

and there is no trace of theJedi.

They may have gotten on

one of your landing craft.

If they're down here, sir,

we'll fnd them.

Use caution.

TheseJedi are not to be underestimated.

- Oh, no!

- Get away! Get out of here!

Get down!

Was'n dat?

Hey, wait!

Oh, mooie-mooie,

I love you.

You almost got us killed.

Are you brainless?

I spake.

The ability to speak

does not make you intelligent.

- Now, get out of here.

- No, no, mesa stay.

Mesa culled Jar Jar Binks.

Mesa your humble servant.

- That won't be necessary.

- Oh, but it 'tis.

'Tis demanded by the gods, it 'tis.

- Oh, no!

- Stay down!

You saved my again.

- What's this?

- A local.

Let's get out of here

before more droids show up.


"More" did you spake?

Ex-squeeze-me, but de mostest

safest place would be Gunga City.
