Star Wars is Poetry – Quote of the Day

There is a bit of a story behind this quote, and the actor voicing this line in the movie. When I found out it wasn’t the actor’s voice used in the delivery of this line, I was a little bummed out. Until I heard Ray Park talk for the first time. Not that there is anything wrong with Ray Park’s voice, but I can totally see why they opted to have a voice actor deliver one of only two lines he speaks in The Phantom Menace.

Darth Maul was a mystery from the beginning. And it was that “mystique” associated with the character that I really liked about him. He was elusive, and for the longest time, I thought the title of the film, The Phantom Menace, was referring to him – and it wasn’t. It was referring to Palpatine as the menace. I would still argue that Darth Maul posed a severe threat to the Jedi and that he took out one of the most important Jedi Master’s of that time is testament to the fact.

He was well and truly a “phantom” and a menace.

I hope you enjoy the graphic I made. Can you think of any other characters from The Phantom Menace who stood out for you? Let me know in the comments!
