A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....

Due to the efforts of a sinister phantom menace, a recent chain of events threatens to plunge the galaxy into turmoil. The Trade Federation, interested only in the pursuit of greed, has blockaded the Republic planet Naboo, ostensibly in protest of the Galactic Republic's high taxation on trade routes. In response, the supreme chancellor of the Republic secretly dispatches two Jedi knights, Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, to negotiate with the Federation as ambassadors. However, the negotiations are cut short when the Federation ambushes the Jedi and invades Naboo.

Surviving the attack and escaping to Naboo, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan rescue its captive monarch, Padmé Amidala. Aiming to bring her to the Republic to plead for help, the Jedi flee with her from Naboo. However, when their ship is damaged in their escape, they're forced to land on the outlying desert planet of Tatooine. Now, in order to repair their ship, the group must lay their hopes on a local boy named Anakin Skywalker, a boy within whom Qui-Gon senses more than just a clever mind, and whose historic legend is about to begin.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

Good the adaptation is, but the movie is more detailed and better of course. The fastest part was Anakin's race. It ends in 8 pages, it kind of makes sense, considering how difficult it is to draw all the racepods.

The art could be a bit better. Master Yoda looks so ugly on this. In the movie he looks yummy. Also it is a bit weird seeing the Anakin as a common boy in a manga. All the others characters look pretty. I wonder if Anakin was already in love with Padme.
