This week on The Podcast, we’re talking about Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace to mark the film’s 20th anniversary and to kick off a three-part miniseries where we discuss the Star Wars prequels. In this episode, we discuss the expectations for The Phantom Menace, how Star Wars fandom morphed and changed since the release of Return of the Jedi, why The Phantom Menace still doesn’t work, how it changed fandom, and more.
