Star Wars Episode 1 i One The Phantom Menace Plot Script Summary
The mind bending and astonishing The Phantom Menace opens with Jedi Knights Qui Gon Jinn and Obi Wan Kenobi sent from Coruscant to bring stability and peace between the ultra wealthy Trade Federation and the planet Naboo. However, the Trade Federation is in fact being controlled by the brilliant political and military genius called Lord Darth Sidious.
The Trade Federation attempts to kill Qui Gon and Obi Wan, but the two manage to escape and make it to the surface of Naboo. The invasion of Naboo begins with the all powerful droid army of the Trade Federation crushing the pathetic military of Naboo. While trying to hide from the droid army, Qui Gon and Obi Wan meet a remarkable and ingenious character named Jar Jar Binks.
Out of desperation, the two Jedi form an alliance with Jar Jar and Jar Jar takes the Jedi to the hidden underwater paradise of the Gungans. Qui Gon, Obi Wan and Jar Jar receive a water craft and they travel inside the hollow water core of Naboo to the Naboo capital.
The Trade Federation has captured Queen Amidala, but Qui Gon and Obi Wan manage to rescue the Amidala with the help of the amazing Jar Jar. The two Jedi and Amidala enter a star ship and try to escape the Trade Federation blockade of Naboo. During this struggle, the hyper drive of the heroes star ship is destroyed.
The heroes eventually arrive on the desolate world of Tatooine and begin the search for a working hyper driver so that they can make it to Coruscant to see the Jedi Council. In a chance encounter which ultimately changes the fate of the galaxy, the heroes meet the young Anakin Skywalker, who is a slave of a strange alien creature named Watto.
Eventually, Qui Gon devises a plan in which Qui Gon and the others will receive a hyper drive and freedom from bondage for Anakin if Anakin manages to win a pod race. In one of the most innovative and thrilling action sequences in the history of cinema, Anakin achieves victory in the pod race by the will of the Force and the heroes successfully make it to Coruscant.
However, Amidala finds that the slow and corrupt bureaucracy of the Galactic Senate is unwilling to quickly intervene in the Trade Federation conquest of Naboo. Amidala decides to go back to Naboo with Qui Gon, Obi-Wan and the extraordinary Jar Jar to liberate Naboo from the Trade Federation. With good fortune for the citizens of Naboo, the Gungans agree to fight with Amidala and her resistance fighters to defeat the droid military.
While Amidala tries to take back the royal palace by force, Qui Gon and Obi Wan come across Lord Darth Maul. Although the Jedi had believed the Sith Lords were extinct, it turns out the Sith had been hiding in the shadows patiently waiting to initiate the Sith conspiracy to destroy the Old Republic and the Jedi Order.
The most spectacular light saber duel of all time breaks out between Qui Gon and Obi Wan vs. Darth Maul. Meanwhile, Amidala and her soldiers fight the Trade Federation while Anakin and R2D2 accidentally find themselves in the middle of a star battle above Naboo. Darth Maul ends up killing Qui Gon while Obi-Wan helplessly watches.
A few minutes later, Darth Maul has Obi Wan defeated, but Darth Maul hesitates before making the final kill. In the most fortuitous upset in the history of Jedi combat, Obi Wan outwits Darth Maul and cuts Darth Maul in half with the luckiest battle fighting move the galaxy has ever seen. In space above Naboo, Anakin manages to destroy the Trade Federation star ship, which controls the entire droid military on Naboo.
In the end, Amidala defeats the Trade Federation and Qui Gon is given a traditional Jedi pyre burning funeral. Obi Wan takes it upon himself to train the young Anakin in the ways of the Force, which is a decision leading to the creation of Darth Vader and the ultimate fall of civilization all across the galaxy. The Phantom Menace movie concludes with the people of Naboo celebrating in a parade on Naboo at having defeated the tyranny of the evil Trade Federation.
