Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace is a 1999 American epic space opera film written and directed by George Lucas. It is the first film in the saga in the story chronology, the first of a three-part prequel to the original Star Wars trilogy, and the fourth film in the Star Wars saga. The film was known to be Lucas' first production as a film director after a 22-year hiatus following the original Star Wars film, and only his fourth film overall.


In response to taxation on trade routes in the Galactic Republic, the Trade Federation organized a blockade of battleships around the planet Naboo.
