I like the Phantom Menace, and I'm not going to dispute that. But I just want to see what a lot of you would have done to change it, given the chance. However, you'd have to leave Jar Jar in it to pretty much the same capacity, . I just KNOW that's going to tick people off . If you had to redo part of the movie, what would you change? But leaving most of it alone.
I'll give a few examples that I've heard people would've liked, and then I'd like to see what other people want. I'm just curious about it.
- Qui-Gon was the apprentice and Kenobi was the Master. This leads to Qui still getting killed by Maul, and Obi taking on his new apprentice - after finding him on Tatooine (or some other planet, as some have wanted): Skywalker.
- Anakin was about 11 or 12. I had read someplace that Lucas made him 9 so that he would be more distraught when leaving his mother. But I think that if Shmi was the only family he knew, it would be just as painful at any age. They showed us this in AOTC.
- Make Anakin's part in the space battle more skillful rather than lucky.
- (One of mine) Get rid of Jake Lloyd!
Okay, that's what I've got. What other changes would you make to the movie, without changing it entirely?
