About The Phantom Menace

Written and directed by George Lucas, The Phantom Menace is the first installment in the Star Wars prequel trilogy. Released on May 19, 1999, it became a major box office success and grossed over a billion dollars worldwide.

Set 32 years before the events of A New Hope, it introduces Anakin Skywalker. The mysterious Darth Sidious and his apprentice Darth Maul manipulate political events to create turmoil across the Galactic Republic.

Notable cast members included Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon Jinn, Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Natalie Portman as Queen Amidala, and Jake Lloyd as the young Anakin Skywalker.

What Is the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Discord?

The Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Discord is a fan-run group celebrating all things Star Wars and Disney parks. Perhaps best known for hosting lightsaber meetups at Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland and Disney World, the SWGEDiscord is a family-friendly and inclusive space where fans can discuss all aspects of Star Wars and Galaxy’s Edge safely.

In addition to our saber meetups, we host in-person and virtual events, including a book club, watch and listening parties, trivia nights, and more. Our Discord server has channels dedicated to planning your visit to Galaxy’s Edge on either coast, the latest stock updates, and talking about your favorite Star Wars shows, movies, books, and comics.
