Star Wars The Phantom Menace

Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace

In 1973, in Los Angeles, a young filmmaker named George Lucas began working on a script treatment for a story called The Star Wars. Inspired by the Flash Gordon space adventure serials he enjoyed as a child, and drawing elements from Akira Kurosawa’s The Hidden Fortress, Lucas wrote a concise 14-page synopsis. Over the next few years and multiple revisions, this synopsis evolved into its grand narrative, taking on a legendary and epic scope. While rooted in science fiction, it also embraced elements of fantasy, incorporating an ancient dualistic religion centered around the all-encompassing Force, warrior monks known as the Jedi who wielded light-swords, and a young protagonist named Luke Starkiller, who would leave his outer-rim planet as an orphan to embark on a quest to fulfill his destiny. Guided by Joseph Campbell’s influential work on comparative mythology. Enjoy Famous Hollywood Movies Online on Soap2day Website.
