I remember back in 1999 when Episode I was still in the cinema I went to watch it one time at the Odeon in Liverpool City Centre and the version of the film was different than the other 14 times I saw the movie at the cinema and different to the bootleg I had. It had several scenes which were cut on the movie. I was expecting them to be on the VHS and then the DVD but the weren't and I ended up writing the the UK Fan Club about it and then got in touch with LucasFilm and LucasFilm told me that it was my mind playing tricks on me, but I know for a FACT that these scenes were included on it! Does anyone else remember seeing these scenes when they went to see it at the cinema:
- When the ship lands on Tatooine Padmé is trying to pursuade Qui-Gon to let her go with him, and she tells him she's trained in martial arts.
- When the group are back on Naboo jar Jar swims to the Gungan sity to ask for their help but when he arrives it is empty.
- When Anakin crashes his ship in the droid control ship, the Battle Droids are questioning R2 about where the pilot is and R2 is claiming he is the pilot.
- And a missing line I noticed, when Obi-Wan is talking to Yoda he says "Qui-Gon believed in him" but in the version I saw he then says "...and I believe in Qui-Gon".
All these bits are in the script and novel and I know I definetly saw them but LucasFilm claim my mind was playing tricks on me. Did anyone else see these?
