Disappointed with the way The Phantom Menace came out? So is Gerhard Paladin. But heâ€™s taking matters into his own hands. Heâ€™s used those hands to write alternate storylines to all three Star Wars prequels, each 15-20 page story treatments of what could have been. If youâ€™re listening, George, take a look at: http://www4.50megs.com/paladin/!
Of course The Phantom Menace has been renamed “An Ancient Enemy” to keep things a little more on the legal side. And there’s been other changes. There’s no Gungans, no underwater city, no journey to â€œthe planet coreâ€, no Neimoudians, no Trade Federation, no Battle Droids, and Darth Maul survives for Episodes II and III.
Plus there’s some new characters: a Jedi with a dark past who turns out to be Anakinâ€™s father, and a peer of Anakinâ€™s that corresponds to Biggs Darklighter in Episode IV: A New Hope.
Look for essays and other documentsâ€”including images of design concepts and scenes from the new storiesâ€”that support the plot treatments.
