The Phantom Menace Trailer That Can’t Possibly Be Real

…but it is. It’s very real.

It’s an official trailer for The Phantom Menace developed specifically to aim the 3D re-release of the movie at children, who are quiteย literallyย the only target demographic who might actually be excited about it.

Before I hear the usual “So what? They’re marketing a kids movie to kids, and there’s nothing wrong with the fact Lucas wanted kids to like the new films.” Something being a “kids movie” is still NEVER an excuse for it being complete shit. The Lion King, Wall-E, Tangled, How to Train Your Dragon and more might all be “kids movies” but they’re still fantastically animated and written and can be enjoyed by all ages. A four year old might laugh at Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, but does that mean it’s “good”? No, and the same four year old would likely laugh if you jangled keys front of him.

And the narration of this trailer is so above and beyond what you’d ever expect to hear in an official spot, you almost PRAY it’s a parody, but alas, it isn’t. Here’s to hoping the cash grabbing 3D re-release of the biggest cinematic disappointment in history somehow manages to lose money.
