If you ever found yourself wondering “How could George Lucas let this happen?” while watching Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, you can rest assured knowing it was not easy for him!
In this painful, hard to watch video, Lucas sits down to see a cut of the first film in the prequels following the massive success of the original trilogy, expecting a masterpiece and getting the opposite.
We can all agree The Phantom Menace is not the best film of them all, but seeing George Lucas himself realize it too is a toughie.
He tried, he made something and a ton of money and now Disney owns it. We think he’s just fine.
