Earlier today, Geek Tyrant posted this movie poster for the upcoming rerelease of ‘The Phantom Menace’ in 3D. Of the three prequels this was my least favorite, but it was also the film that introduced me to my favorite character in the ‘Star Wars’ universe. Darth Maul was an excellent villain, and it’s a shame that Lucas decided to kill him at the end of Episode 1. Many people have argued that Maul should have endured through the entire prequel run, and died at the hands of Anikin in ‘Revenge of the Sith.’ Thankfully, Darth Maul will be featured in ‘The Clone Wars‘ animated series this spring on the Cartoon Network. What do you think of the rerelease? Are you going to give Mr. Lucas more of your money? I know I am.
