I've just finished scanning up some old newspaper clippings to write up some memories of the Episode 1 movie release in New Zealand.

1999 certainly was a different time for Star Wars fans. When and where did everyone see that first prequel film?

Well I was only twelve years old at the time - and still coming to terms with the fact that I was going to actually see a Star Wars film released in my lifetime...

Things sure have changed, huh?

I'm still simultaneously getting used to the whole movie-per-year thing, while wondering how we lived with the perception in the 2000s that the prequel trilogy would be the end of the Star Wars movie franchise.

West AKl for PM, Toronto for AOTC, can't remember for ROTS!

Yeah I do remember thinking wow we'll never know what happens or what the last 3 films will be like ha ha.

I've been purposefully avoiding spoilers/ trailers anything this time round I want to go into the film as blank as possible :)

New Plymouth for TPM, Nagaizumi-Cho for AOTC, Wanganui for ROTS.

I was 11 when TPM came out, turned 12 that August. I remember nothing about the marketing other than attempting to download the trailer during one of my turns on the computer, and that my friends and I were super excited for the podracing. One friend and I even managed to squeeze it in to a science project we did about jet engines :lol:
