"Now the fun begins..." I was thinking - we are about two and a half years out from a brand new Star Wars trilogy. A series of movies that we have not yet been introduced to. The possibilities are endless. The last time we were remotely close to this was leading up to The Phantom Menace. So, I thought it would be interesting to look back and see what we knew (or maybe more entertaining - what we THOUGHT we knew) about Episode 1 at a similar time. This might give is an idea of the kind of information that could be available this time around. My quick math says that we would be looking back to NOVEMBER 1996, a few months before the release of the Special Editions. What did Episode 1 look like at that time?
