    I would actually call it The Phantom Menace, but take away Episode I.

    Then I would change Episode II to Episode I and Episode III to Episode II.

    Then Lucas can refilm Episode III and show the jedi purge and the Rise of the Empire.

    HENCE....Episode III: Rise of the Empire.

    "Uncle George Ruins The Star Wars Saga by Creating Jar Jar Stinks, Writing Poor Scripts with Horrible Dialogue, Casting Jake Lloyd and Using Too Much CGI."

    I've got a better one:
    "Uncle George begins his Star Wars Prequels with a fim that fans endlessy whine and moan about Jar Jar Binks, the script, the dialogue, Jake lloyd and the amount of CGI and claim he has ruined the saga".

    "Uncle George Ruins The Star Wars Saga by Creating Jar Jar Stinks, Writing Poor Scripts with Horrible Dialogue, Casting Jake Lloyd and Using Too Much CGI."

    Then shall we rename ROTJ:

    "Uncle George already ruined the Star Wars Saga by creating Ewoks, making Boba Fett die like a loser, directing a coked up Carrie Fischer, a poor acting Mark Hamill, and bored Harrison Ford, and using the Muppet Show for most of the Jabba Scenes, all while re-using the same 'let's blow up the deathstar routine,' and having the lamest ending of all the Star Wars Saga."

    IMO, complaining about CGI in the PT is like complaining about using puppets in the OT. Sorry, I just don't get it. Do puppets look more realistic or something? Or maybe you prefer clay models?

    MrC123,

    You have no argument from me regarding ROTJ. That was the beginning of the end for me. That what happens when you listen to your kids.

    The CGI would have been tolerable if it was used correctly. I am sorry but the battle of Naboo with the droids and Gungans looked like a video game.

    CRH

    I've actually learned to like the title.

    After all the Phantom Menace is Anakin himself.

    Although, the whole series of events is a close second.

    George Lucas;

    I'm fed up with what fanboys think, and I'll prove it...The best title in a long time...

    ... a brilliant first chapter of a six part story, getting the 'boring parts' out of the way, create a character who isn't the brightest but will play a huge role in the continuity of the saga, a villain the 'fanboys' will go nuts over, but it's essential to the story that he dies (regardless of how cool, or how the fanboys feel his death scene was 'wrong'!) as the entire story revolves around Anakin Skywalker, while at the same time showing the world what my ILM is capable of, then I'll do EP II, after that I'll really be done with 'fanboys' and I'll make it for 'myself', the reason I got into film making - making films *I* like.

    Ahh, there

    Hmmm..I never thought of the Phantom Menace as refering to Anakin...Whoah.... O_O

    anyway, Here's my names for it:

    Darkness Rising
    The Start of the End
    The Chosen One
    but my favorite title would have been:

    The Phantom Menace...

    original eh?

    Jar Jar's Amazing Adventure Composing of Ewoks, Wookiees, Friends of the Forest, Bambi, Snow White and her seven man-whores, Sleeping Beauty, Gungans of course, Rapunzel and her shining hair, and we can't forget the evil Teddy Bear or the Amazing Bunny Head, or Thumper.

    That's the second best title for EP1. The first is THE PHANTOM MENACE.
