‘Star Wars: The Phantom Menace’ at 25: Who are the angels on the Moons of Iego?

Yippee! “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace” blows out the candles on its 25th anniversary birthday cake today. 

After taking in a screening during its short return to theaters for Star Wars Day week, we can honestly say that this polarizing film still has its problems but honestly elicits enough thrills to warrant a repeat viewing, if only to hear John Williams sweeping musical score and see Ray Park’s acrobatic Darth Maul twirl his double-bladed lightsaber while seething with palpable hatred toward the gallant Jedi Knights.
