The Ultimate "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace" Quiz

Do you think that you deserve a spot on the Jedi Council? Test your knowledge of the film that comes first chronologically in the "Star Wars" saga.

Introduction

On May 19, 1999, sixteen years after the release of Return of the Jedi, the first episode of the Star Wars prequel series was released. The movie was directed by none other than George Lucas, the creator of this extraordinary universe that audiences fell in love with in the classic trilogy. The Phantom Menace broke all records at the box office, at the time becoming the second-highest grossing movie ever. Fans of all ages were drawn to the theaters for that event. Whether it was a young kid who never got the chance to see the original Star Wars in theaters, or a 35-year-old who saw the premier of Empire Strikes Back, seemingly everyone had a reason to watch this movie in theaters.

Critics gave the movie mostly negative reviews, and it is still one of the lowest-rated Star Wars movies to date. A major critique is the film’s overdependence on CGI. In the classic trilogy, real people and physical models dominated the scene. The Death Star, different plants, and Star Destroyers were actually models shot in front of a blue screen, which felt more real to audiences. In the late 1990s, CGI was not convincing enough for the audience to become fully immersed in the film. Because of that, fans couldn’t identify with that “Star Wars experience” anymore. Positives? Well, John Williams’ score was breathtaking as ever, Qui-Gon and Darth Maul were both compelling characters, and the final Jedi-Sith showdown was marked as one of the best lightsaber battles in history.

Love it or hate it? Either way, that means you paid attention. So prove it! How well do you think you know Star Wars: The Phantom Menace? Take the following quiz to see if you deserve a place on the Jedi Council.
