Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999) - full transcript

The evil Trade Federation, led by Nute Gunray is planning to take over the peaceful world of Naboo. Jedi Knights Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi are sent to confront the leaders. But not everything goes to plan. The two Jedi escape, and along with their new Gungan friend, Jar Jar Binks head to Naboo to warn Queen Amidala, but droids have already started to capture Naboo and the Queen is not safe there. Eventually, they land on Tatooine, where they become friends with a young boy known as Anakin Skywalker. Qui-Gon is curious about the boy, and sees a bright future for him. The group must now find a way of getting to Coruscant and to finally solve this trade dispute, but there is someone else hiding in the shadows. Are the Sith really extinct? Is the Queen really who she says she is? And what's so special about this young boy?

(ENGINES ROARING)

- QUI-GON: Captain.
- Yes, sir?

Tell them we wish
to board at once.

- (BEEPING)
- With all due respect.

The ambassadors for the supreme
chancellor wish to board immediately.

Yes, of course. As you know, our
blockade is perfectly legal.

And we'd be happy to
receive the ambassadors.

(ENGINE ROARS)

- (HATCH OPENS)
- I'm TC-14 at your service.



This way, please.

(HATCH CLOSES)

We are greatly honor by
your visit, ambassadors.

Make yourself's comfortable.

My master will be
with you shortly.

I have a bad feeling
about this.

I don't sense anything.

It's not about the
mission, Master.

It's something, elsewhere.

Elusive.

Don't center on your
anxieties, Obi-Wan.

Keep your concentration here
and now, where it belongs.

But Master Yoda said,

I should be mindful
of the future.



But not at the expense
of the moment.

Be mindful of the living
Force, young Padawan.

Yes, master.

OBI-WAN: How do you think
this trade viceroy

will deal with the
chancellor's demands?

QUI-GON: These Federation
types are cowards.

The negotiations
will be shorter.

VICEROY: What?
What did you say?

The ambassadors are Jedi
knights, I believe.

I knew it. They're here
to force a settlement.

Distract them.

- I will contact Lord Sidious.
- Are you brain-dead?

I'm not going in
there with two Jedi.

Send a droid.

(HATCH OPENS)

OBI-WAN: Is it in their nature
to make us wait this long?

QUI-GON: No.

I sense an unusual amount of
fear for something as trivial

as this trade dispute.

SIDIOUS: What is it?

This scheme of yours has
failed, Lord Sidious.

The blockade is finished.

We dare not go
against these Jedi.

Viceroy.

I don't want this stunted
slime in my sight again.

SIDIOUS: This turn of
events is unfortunate.

We must accelerate our plans.

Begin landing your troops.

- My, Lord. Is that legal?
- I will make it legal.

And the Jedi?

The chancellor should never
have brought them into this.

Kill them immediately.

Yes. Yes, my lord.
As you wish.

(WEAPONS COCKING)

Captain, look!

(SCREAMING) Shields up!

(SHIP EXPLOSES)

- (LIGHTSABER ACTIVATING)
- TC-14: Oh, sorry.

- Dioxis.
- (LIGHTSABER DEACTIVATING)

VICEROY: They must
be dead by now.

- Destroy what's left of them.
- (HATCH OPENS)

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYS)

- Oh! Excuse me.
- Check it out, Corporal.

- We'll cover you.
- Roger, roger.

- (LIGHTSABER ACTIVATING)
- Uh-oh! Blast them!

(THRILLING MUSIC PLAYING)

- What is going on down there?
- We lost the tranmission, sir.

Have you ever encountered a
Jedi knight before, sir?

Well, no, but I don't.

- Seal off the bridge.
- Yes, sir.

That won't be enough, sir.

I want droidekas
up here at once!

- (HATCH CLOSING)
- We will not survive this.

(BATTLE DROID GROANS)

- (SAWING)
- Close the blast doors!

(BLAST DOOR CLOSING)

That will hold them.

- They are still coming through!
- This is impossible!

Where are those Droidekas?

Master, destroyers!

(WEAPONS COCKING)

They have shield generators.

It's a standoff. Let's go!

They're no match
for droidekas.

Sir.

They've gone up the
ventilation shaft.

- QUI-GON: Battle droids.
- OBI-WAN: It's an invasion army.

This is an odd play for
the Trade Federation.

We've got to warn the Naboo and
contact Chancellor Valorum.

QUI-GON: Let's split up.

Stow aboard separate ships
and meet down on the planet.

You were right about
one thing, Master.

The negotiations were short.

Sir, a transmission
from the planet.

It's Queen Amidala herself.

At last we are
getting results.

Again you come before
us, Your Highness.

You will not be so pleased when you
hear what I have to say, Viceroy.

Your trade boycott of
our planet has ended.

I was not aware
of such failure.

I have word that the chancellor's
ambassadors are with you now...

and that you have been
commanded to reach settlement.

I know nothing of
any ambassadors.

- You must be mistaken?
- Beware, Viceroy.

The Federation has gone
too far this time.

We would never do anything without
the approval of the senate.

- VICEROY: You assume too much.
- We'll see.

She's right.

- The senate will never...
- It's too late now.

- Do you think she suspects an attack?
- I don't know.

But we must move
quickly to disrupt

all communications
down there.

PALPATINE: Negotiations
haven't started...

because the ambassadors
aren't there?

How could that be true?

I have assurances from the chancellor
his ambassadors did arrive.

(DISTORTED VOICE) It must... handiwork...
negotiate... ambassadors...

- Nobody would.
- Senator Palpatine.

- What's happening?
- Check the transmission generator.

BIBBO: A communications disruption
can mean only one thing

Invasion.

The Federation would
not dare go that far.

The senate would revoke
their trade franchise...

and they'd be finished.

We must continue to
rely on negotiation.

BIBBO: Negotiation? We've
lost all communications.

And where are the
chancellor's ambassadors?

This is a dangerous
situation, Your Highness.

Our security volunteers
will be no match against...

a battle-hardened
Federation army.

I will not condone a
course of action...

that will lead us to war.

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)

(ENGINES ROARING)

(ROARING CONTINUES)

Yes, Viceroy?

Captain, we've searched the ship
and there is no trace of the Jedi.

They may have gotten on one
of your landing craft.

If they're down here, sir.
Will find them.

Use caution.

These Jedi are not to
be underestimated.

(SCREAMING AND HOWLING)

(BIRD SQUAWKING)

- (YELLS)
- Oh, no!

Get away! Get out of there!

- Get down!
- (SCREAMING)

What?

(GRUNTS)

Was'n dat?

Hey, wait!

JAR JAR: Oh, mooie-mooie!
I love you!

QUI-GON: You almost got us killed.
Are you brainless?

I spake.

The ability to speak does
not make you intelligent.

- Now, get out of here.
- No, no. Mesa stay.

Mesa called Jar Jar Binks.

- Mesa your humble servant.
- That won't be necessary.

Oh, but it 'tis. 'Tis demanded
by the gods, it 'tis.

- (LASER FIRES)
- JAR JAR: Oh, no!

- Stay down!
- (LIGHTSABER ACTIVATING)

Whoo!

- You saved my again.
- What's this.

A local. Let's get out of here
before more droids show up.

More? "More" did you spake?

JAR JAR: Ex-squeeze me.

But de mostest safest place
would be Gunga City.

Is where I grew up.
'Tis a hidden city.

- A city?
- Uh-huh.

- Can you take us there?
- Uh, on second thought, no.

- Not really, no. No.
- No?

'Tis embarrassing.

But, uh, my afraid
my've been banished.

My forgotten. Da bosses would
do terrible tings to me.

Terrible tings to me
if me goen back dare.

- (WATER SPLASHES)
- You hear that?

Yeah.

That is the sound of a thousand
terrible things heading this way.

OBI-WAN: If they find us...

They will crush us.

Grind us into tiny pieces
and blast us into oblivion.

Oh.

Yousa point is well seen.

This way. Hurry!

(CREATURES CHITTERING)

(HOOTING)

- QUI-GON: How much further?
- Wesa going underwater. Okey-day?

Ah, my warning you. Gungans

Now go.

Thank you for your help.
We leave in peace.

- Master, what's a bongo?
- A transport, I hope.

Deysa setten yousa up.

Going through the planet core?
Bad-bombin'.

Mmm...

Any help here would be hot.
(LAUGHS)

Master, we're short on time.

We'll need a navigator to get
us through the planet's core.

This gungan may be of help.

What is to become of
Jar Jar Binks here?

NASS: Hisen soon
to be pune-ished.

- (GROANS)
- I saved his life.

He owes me what you
call a " life-debt."

Your gods demand that his
life belongs to me now.

This is nothing.
Oh, gobberfish.

Why were you

It's a longo tale-o. But uh, a
small part of it would be...

Mesa, uh, clumsey.

- Mesa tink we goen back now.

- (ENGINES ROARING)
- (CRUNCHES)

(FIGHTERS HOWLING)

The invasion is on
schedule, my lord.

SIDIOUS: I have the senate
bogged down in procedures.

They will have no choice but to
accept your control of the system.

The queen has great faith that
the senate will side with her.

Queen Amidala is
young and naive.

You will find controlling
her will not be difficult.

Yes, my lord.

You didn't tell him
about the missing Jedi.

No need the report
that to him...

until we have
something to report.

(ENGINES HUMMING)

Where mesa going?

Don't worry. The
force will guide us.

Oh, maxi big, da force.

Well, that smell's
stinkowiff.

- (BEEPING)
- We're losing power.

Oh, no.

(POWER WHINNING DOWN)

Wesa dyin' here.

- (GROANS)
- You're overdid it.

(GROWLING CONTINUES)

(ROARING)

(CRUNCHES)

- Horrible.
- Head for that outcropping.

(BLUBBERS) Oh, boy.

(ENGINES STEERING)

(FIGHTERS HOWLING)

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)

BATTLE DROID: Viceroy,
We've captured the queen.

(SIGHS) Victory.

(ENGINES HUMMING)

- (BIRDS SQUAWKING)
- (THUMPING)

- Mmm, dis'n loverly.
- (HATCH OPENS)

(ENGINE POWERING DOWN)

BIBBO: How will you explain
this invasion to the senate?

VICEROY: The queen
and I will sign a...

treaty that will legitimize
our occupation here.

I have assurances it will
be ratified by the senate.

- I will not cooperate.
- Now, now, Your Highness.

In time, the suffering of your
people will persuade you...

to see our point of view.

- Commander.
- Yes, sir?

Process them.

- Captain, Take them the Camp 4.
- Roger, roger.

(MUSIC PLAYING)

(BIRDS CHIRPING)

- (THRILLING MUSIC PLAYS)
- JAR JAR: Whoops!

(LIGHTSABER ACTIVATING)

JAR JAR: Whoo-hoo!

(GROANS)

(GROANS)

(LIGHTSABER DEACTIVATING)

We should leave the
street, Your Highness.

PANAKA: Get the weapons.

Whoa! Yousa guys bombad!

We're ambassadors for
the supreme chancellor.

Your negotiations seemed to
have failed, Ambassador.

The negotiations
never took place.

QUI-GON: It's urgent that we
make contact with the Republic.

They've knocked out all
our communications.

- Do you have transport?
- In the main hangar. This way.

- There are too many of them.
- That won't be a problem.

Your Highness, under
the circumstances.

I suggest you come to
Coruscant with us.

Thank you, Ambassador, but
my place is with my people.

- They will kill you if you stay.
- They wouldn't dare.

They need her to sign a treaty
to make this invasion legal.

They can't afford
to kill her.

There is something else behind
all this, Your Highness.

There's no logic in the
Federation's move here.

My feelings tell me
they will destroy you.

Our only hope is for the
senate to side with us.

Senator Palpatine
will need your help.

Either choice presents
great danger.

- To us all.
- We are brave, Your Highness.

QUI-GON: If you are to leave,
Your Highness, it must be now.

Then I will plead our
case to the senate.

Be careful, governor.

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)

PANAKA: We'll need to
free those pilots.

I'll deal with that.

Halt.

I'm ambassador to the
supreme chancellor.

I'm taking these
people to Coruscant.

Where are you taking them?

- To Coruscant.
- Coruscant? Uh, that doesn't compute.

Uh, wait. You're
under arrest!

(THRILLING MUSIC PLAYING)

- (GROANS)
- (WEAPON FIRING)

PANAKA: Come on! Move!

Go!

(FIRING CONTINUES)

(LIGHTSABER HUMMING)

(THRUSTERS FIRING)

Now, stay here. And
keep out of trouble.

(CLOSES DOOR)

- Hello, boyos.
- (DROID BEEPING)

(SHIP ROARING)

There's the blockcade.

(LASERS FIRING)

- (BEEPING)
- Shield generator's been hit!

(ALARM BLARING)

(BEEPING)

- (R2-D2 BEEPING)
- (SCREAMS)

How wude!

(BEEPING CONTINUES)

- (R2-D2 WHIRRING)
- (LASER FIRES)

(SCREAMING)

We're losing droids fast.

If we can't get the shield generator
fixed, we'll be sitting ducks.

- (SCREAMING)
- The shields are gone.

(WHISTLING, BEEPING)

- The power's back!
- (R2-D2 BEEPING)

That little droid did it.

He bypassed the
main power drive.

Deflector shields
up at maximum.

(FIRING CONTINUES)

(BEEPING, WHISTLING)

There's not enough power
to get us to Coruscant.

- The hyperdrive is leaking.
- We'll have to land somewhere...

to refuel and
repair the ship.

Here, Master. Tatooine. It's
small, out of the way, poor.

The Trade Federation
have no presence there.

- How can you be sure?
- It's controlled by the Hutts.

You can't take Her
Royal Highness there.

The Hutts are gangsters.
If they discovered her-

It'd be no different
than if we landed...

on a system controlled
by the Federation.

Except that the Hutts
aren't looking for her.

Which gives us the advantage.

SIDIOUS: And Queen Amidala,
has she signed the treaty?

She has disappeared, my lord.

One Naboo cruiser got
past the blockade.

(GROWLS) I want
that treaty signed.

My lord, it's impossible
to locate the ship.

- It's out of our range.
- Not for the sith.

(DARTH MAUL THEME PLAYS)

This is my apprentice:

Darth Maul.

He will find your lost ship.

This is getting out of hand.
Now there are two of them.

We should not have
made this bargain.

(SHIP ROARING)

An extremely well-put-together
little droid, Your Highness.

Without a doubt, it saved the
ship, as well as our lives.

It is to be commended.
What is its number?

(R2-D2 BEEPING)

R2-D2, Your Highness.

Thank you, R2-D2.

(WHISTLING, BEEPING)

Padme.

Clean this droid up
as best you can.

It deserves our gratitude.

(WHISTLING CONTINUES)

Continue, Captain.

Your Highness, with
your permission,

we're heading for a remote
planet called Tatooine.

It's in a system far beyond the
reach of the Trade Federation.

I do not agree with
the Jedi on this.

You must trust my
judgment, Your Highness.

- (R2-D2 BEEPING)
- JAR JAR: Hello.

Sorry. Whosa are yousa?

I'm Padme.

Mesa Jar Jar Binks.

- (BEEPING)
- You're a gungan. Are you?

Uh-huh.

- How'd you end up here with us?
- My no know.

and pow... mesa here.

- (BEEPS)
- Huh.

Mesa getten berry,

(R2-D2 BEEPING)

(SHIP ROARING)

- That's it... Tatooine.
- There's a settlement.

Land near the outskirts. We don't
want to attract attention.

(BEEPS)

(SHIP WHINNING DOWN)

(SHIP POWERING DOWN)

The hyperdrive generator's
gone, Master.

- We'll need a new one.
- That'll complicate things.

Be wary. I sense a
disturbance in the Force.

I feel it also, Master.

Don't let them send
any transmissions.

JAR JAR: This sun doen
murder to mesa skin.

- PANAKA: Wait! Wait.
- (R2-D2 BEEPING)

Her Highness commands you to
take her handmaiden with you.

No more commands from Her
Highness today, Captain.

The spaceport is not
going to be pleasant.

The queen wishes it. She's
curious about the planet.

(SIGHS)

This is not a good idea.
Stay close to me.

(R2-D2 BEEPING)

Moisture farms, for
the most part.

Some indigenous tribes
and scavengers.

The few spaceports
like this one...

are havens for those that
don't wish to be found.

Like us.

- (SHOUTS)
- Dissen berry berry bad.

- (SLOTHS)
- Oh! Icky, icky goo!

(CHATTERING)

(SNORTS)

We'll try one of the
smaller dealers.

(ENGINES ROARS)

(BELL DINGS)

(SPEAKING HUTTESE)

I need parts for a
J-type 327 Nubian.

WATTO: Ah, yes! Nubian.
We have lots of that.

(HUTTESE)

My droid has a readout
of what I need.

(WATTO GRUNTS)

(BOTH SPEAKING HUTTESE)

WATTO: So... let me take
thee out back, huh?

Ni you'll find what you need.

(WATTO LAUGHS)

Don't touch anything.

(GRUNTS, BLUBBERS)

Hmm?

ANAKIN: Are you an angel?

- What?
- An angel.

I heard the deep space
pilots talk about them.

They're the most beautiful
creatures in the universe.

They live on the moons
of lego, I think.

You're a funny little boy.
How do you know so much?

I listen to all the traders and
star pilots who come through here.

I'm a pilot, you know, and someday
I'm gonna fly away from this place.

- You're a pilot?
- Mm-hmm. All my life.

How long have you been here?

Since I was very little.
Three, I think.

My mom and I were sold
to Gardulla the Hutt.

But she lost us betting
on the Podraces.

- You're a slave?
- I'm a person, and my name is Anakin.

I'm sorry. I don't fully understand.
This is a strange place to me.

JAR JAR: Hmm? Hmm?

(SCREAMS)

Where... Wheres yousa goin?

- (GROANS)
- (CACKLING)

(JAR JAR GRUNTS)

- I got ya.
- ANAKIN: Hey.

- What?
- Hit the nose!

Oh! Uh.

WATTO: AT-14 hyperdrive generator.
Thee in luck.

I'm the only one
hereabouts who has one.

But thee might as
well buy a new ship.

It would be cheaper
I think, huh?

(LAUGHS) Saying of which how's
thee gonna pay for all this, huh?

I have 20,000
Republic dataries.

Republic credits? Republic
credits are no good out here.

- I need something more real.
- I don't have anything else.

- But credits will do fine.
- No, they won't.

- Credits will do fine.
- No, they won't!

What, you think you're some kind of Jedi,
waving your hand around like that?

I'm a Toydarian. Mind tricks
don't work on me. Only money.

- No money, no parts, no deal.
- (R2-D2 BEEPING)

And no one else has a T-14
hyperdrive, I promise you that.

(WATTO GRUNTS)

Wouldn't have lasted long anyways if
I wasn't so good at building things.

(JAR JAR SCREAMS)

- (SCREAMING)
- We're leaving. Jar Jar.

- (SCREAMING CONTINUES)
- (CRASH)

I'm glad to have
met you, Anakin.

I was glad to meet you too.

- (R2-D2 BEEPING)
- What? What? Oh.

(WATTO GRUNTS)

(SPEAKING HUTTESE)

ANAKIN: Yippee!

(GROANS)

QUI-GON: And you're sure
there's nothing left on board?

OBI-WAN: A few
containers of supplies.

The queen's wardrobe, maybe, but
not enough for you to barter with,

not in the amount
you're talking about.

All right. I'm sure another solution will
present itself. I'll check back later.

- (COMLINK BEEPS)
- Noah gain! Noah gain!

Da beings hereabouts, cawazy!

- Wesa be wobbed un crunched!
- Not likely.

We have nothing of value.
That's our problem.

(R2-D2 BEEPING)

(SCAVENGERS SHOUTING)

Hmm? Ah, mooie-mooie.

- Hey! Hey!

JAR JAR: Ouch! Ouch!

Chestgo, Sebulba.

(HUTTESE)

- Hi.
- Hi there.

ANAKIN: Your buddy here was about
to be turned into orange goo.

He picked a fight with a Dug.

An especially dangerous
Dug called Sebulba.

Mesa haten crunchen. Das

Nevertheless, the boy is right.
You were heading into trouble.

Thanks, my young friend.

JAR JAR: But... But...
But mesa doen nutten!

- This storm will slow them down!
- Looks pretty bad.

(BEEPS)

- MAN: Receiving a message from home.

- We'll be right there.

ANAKIN: Here, you'll like
these pallies. Here.

Thank you.

WOMAN: Oh, my bones are aching.
Storm's coming up, Ani.

You better get home quick.

- ANAKIN: Do you have shelter?
- QUI-GON: We'll head back to our ship.

- Is it far?
- It's on the outskirts.

You'll never reach the
outskirts in time.

Sandstorms are very,
very dangerous.

Come on. I'll take
you to my place.

(WHISTLING, BEEPING)

(SANDSTORM WHISTLING)

(EXHALES) Mom! Mom, I'm home.

JAR JAR: Ahh, dissen cozy.

- These are my friends, Mom.
- JAR JAR: Hello.

I'm Qui-Gon Jinn.

I'm building a droid.
You wanna see?

Your son was kind enough
to offer us shelter.

- Come on. I'll show you 3PO.
- Oh, mooie-mooie.

(R2-D2 WHISTLING)

ANAKIN: Isn't he great?
He's not finished yet.

- PADME: He's wonderful.
- (R2-D2 CHIRPS)

ANAKIN: You really like him? He's
a protocol droid to help Mom.

- Watch.
- (BEEPS)

C-3P0: Oh. Oh. Uh...
Where is everybody?

Oops. Yeah.

Oh, hello. I am C-3PO
human-cyborg relations.

- How might I serve you?
- He's perfect.

- Oh, perfect.
- When the storm is over,

I'll show you my racer.
I'm building a Podracer.

(R2-D2 BEEPS)

C-3PO: I'm not sure this
floor is entirely stable.

Oh, hello. I don't believe
we have been introduced.

(R2-D2 EXCITED BEEPING)

R2-D2. A pleasure to meet you. I
am C-3PO, human-cyborg relations.

(CHIRPING, BEEPING)

I beg your pardon, but what
do you mean, " naked"?

My parts are showing?
My goodness! Oh!

(WIND WHISTLING)

BIBBO: The death toll
is catastrophic.

We must bow to their wishes.
You must contact me.

OBI-WAN: It's a trick.
Send no reply.

Send no transmissions
of any kind.

It sounds like bait to
establish a connection trace.

What if it is true, and
the people are dying?

Either way, we're
running out of time.

(COMLINK BEEPS)

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYS)

MAUL: Tatooine is
sparsely populated.

If the trace was correct, I
will find them quickly, Master.

PALPATINE: Move against
the Jedi first.

You will then have no difficulty
in taking the queen to Naboo...

to sign the treaty.

At last we will reveal
ourselves to the Jedi.

At last we will have revenge.

PALPATINE: You have been
well-trained, my young apprentice.

They will be no
match for you.

(WIND WHISTLING)

SHMI: All slaves have a transmitter
placed inside their bodies somewhere.

(R2-D2 BEEPS)

ANAKIN: I've been working on a
scanner to try and locate mine.

- Any attempt to escape...
- And they blow you up! Boom!

How wude!

I can't believe there's still
slavery in the galaxy.

- The Republic's antislavery laws- -
The Republic doesn't exist out here.

SHMI: We must
survive on our own.

(GULPS) Excuse me.

Has anybody ever
seen a Podrace?

QUI-GON: They have
Podracing on Malastare.

Very fast, very dangerous.

I'm the only human
who can do it.

You must have Jedi
reflexes if you race pods.

- (GASPS)
- Don't do that again.

(SCREAMING, BLUBBERS)

You're a Jedi
knight, aren't you?

- What makes you think that?
- I saw your laser sword.

Only Jedis carry
that kind of weapon.

Perhaps I killed a Jedi
and took it from him.

ANAKIN: I don't think so.
No one can kill a Jedi.

I wish that were so.

I had a dream I was a Jedi.

I came back here and
freed all the slaves.

- Have you come to free us?
- No, I'm afraid not.

I think you have. Why
else would you be here?

I can see there's no
fooling you, Anakin.

We're on our way to Coruscant, the
central system in the Republic,

on a very important mission.

How did you end up out
here in the outer rim?

PADME: Our ship was damaged, and we're
stranded here until we can repair it.

I can help. I can
fix anything.

QUI-GON: Well, I
believe you can.

But first we must acquire
the parts we need.

JAR JAR: Wit no-nutten
mula to trade.

These junk dealers must have
a weakness of some kind.

Gambling.

Everything here revolves around
betting on those awful races.

QUI-GON: Podracing. Greed
can be a powerful ally.

I built a racer. It's
the fastest ever.

There's a big race
tomorrow on Boonta Eve.

- You could enter my pod.
- SHMI: Anakin!

- Watto won't let you.
- Watto doesn't know I've built it.

You could make him
think it was yours...

and get him to let
me pilot it for you.

SHMI: I don't
want you to race.

It's awful. I die every
time Watto makes you do it.

ANAKIN: But, Mom, I love it.

The prize money would more than
pay for the parts they need.

Anakin.

Your mother's right.

Is there anyone friendly to
the Republic who can help us?

No.

Mom, you say the biggest problem in this
universe is nobody helps each other.

I'm sure Qui-Gon doesn't want
to put your son in danger.

- We'll find some other way.
- No.

There is no other way.

I may not like it,
but he can help you.

SHMI: He was meant
to help you.

(CREATURES GROWLS)

Are you sure about this?

PADME: Trusting our fate
to a boy we hardly know?

The queen will not approve.

The queen doesn't
need to know.

Well, I don't approve.

(BELL DINGS)

WATTO: The boy tells me you want
to sponsor him in the race.

How can you do this? Not on the
Republic credits, I think, huh?

- (BEEPS)
- My ship will be the entry fee.

WATTO: Oh, not bad!

Not bad, huh? A Nubian, huh?

QUI-GON: It's in good order,
except for the parts I need.

WATTO: What would
the boy ride?

He smashed up my pod in the last race.
It will take some long time to fix it.

It wasn't my fault, really. Sebulba
flashed me with his vents.

I actually saved
the pod, mostly.

Mmm. That you did, huh.
(LAUGHS)

The boy's good. No
doubts there, huh?

I have acquired a pod in a game of
chance, the fastest ever built.

WATTO: I hope you didn't kill
anyone I know for it, huh?

(LAUGHS) So, you supply the
pod and the entry fee,

and I supply the boy.

We split the winnings,
um, 50:50, I think, huh?

If it's going to be 50:50, I suggest
you front the cash for the entry.

If we win...

you keep all the winnings, minus
the cost of the parts I need.

And if we lose,
you keep my ship.

Either way, you win.

Hmm.

Deal.

(SPEAKING HUTTESE)

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYS)

What if this plan
fails, Master?

We could be stuck here
a very long time.

QUI-GON: Well, it's too
dangerous to call for help and,

a ship without a power supply
isn't going to get us anywhere.

And there's something
about this boy.

(COMLINK BEEPS)

You should be very
proud of your son.

QUI-GON: He gives without
any thought of reward.

Well, he knows
nothing of greed.

He has a...

He has special powers.

Yes.

He can see things
before they happen.

That's why he appears to
have such quick reflexes.

QUI-GON: It's a Jedi trait.

SHMI: He deserves better
than a slave's life.

C-3PO: Why, certainly.

Had he been born in the Republic,
we would have identified him early.

The Force is unusually strong with him.
That much is clear.

Who was his father?

There was no father.

SHMI: I carried him, I
gave birth, I raised him.

I can't explain
what happened.

Can you help him?

I don't know.

I didn't actually come
here to free slaves.

(KIDS GIGGLING)

BOY: Hey, hi, Ani!

ANAKIN: Hi.

- That isn't the half of it.

- I'm in the Boonta race tomorrow.
- KITSTER: What?

With this?

(SPEAKING ALIEN LANGUAGE)

You've been working on
that thing for years.

- It's never gonna run.

Let's go and play ball.
Keep racing, Ani.

You're gonna be bug squash.

(ALL LAUGHING)

ANAKIN: Hey, Jar Jar.

If your hand gets caught in the

Sorry. Ok.

Where is da wrench?

Oh, there it is.

You know, I find that JarJar
creature to be a little odd.

(R2-D2 GURGLING)

You don't even know if
this thing's gonna run.

- Here, use this power charge.

Come on, Kitster.
Let's move away.

There's so many. Do they all
have a system of planets?

Most of them.

Has anyone been to 'em all?

(CHUCKLES) Not likely.

I wanna be the first
one to see 'em all.

- SHMI: Ani, bedtime!
- Ow!

There we are. Good as new.

Ani, I'm not gonna
tell you again.

- What are you doing?
- Checking your blood for infections.

Go on. You have a
big day tomorrow.

Sleep well, Ani.

- Obi-Wan?
- OBI-WAN: Yes, master?

I need an analysis of this
blood sample I'm sending you.

- Wait a minute.
- (BEEPING)

- I need a midi-chlorian count.
- (COMLINK BEEPS)

The reading is off the chart.
Over 20,000.

OBI-WAN: Even Master Yoda doesn't
have a midi-chlorian count that high.

- No Jedi has.
- What does that mean?

I'm not sure.

And we'll be far
away from here.

Not if your ship belongs
to me, I think, huh?

(LAUGHS) I warn you,
no funny business.

- You don't think Anakin can win?
- Don't get me wrong, no.

I have great faith
in the boy.

He's a credit to your race,

but, uh, Sebulba there is
going to win, I think.

(LAUGHING GLADLY)

Oh, no!

(SPEAKING HUTTESE)

- What do you think that?
- He always wins! (LAUGHS)

I am betting heavily
on Sebulba.

- I'll take that bet.
- You what?

I'll wager my new racing
pod against, say,

the boy and his mother.

No pod is worth two slaves,
not by a long shot.

The boy, then.

Hmm. Well, uh...

We'll let fate decide, huh?

I just happen to have
a chance cube here.

Blue, it's the boy.
Red, uh-his mother.

I can assure you, they will never get me

KITSTER: This is so wizard, Ani.
I'm sure you'll do it this time.

I'm so very proud of you.

ANAKIN: Aww.

(HUTTESE)

You! You swindled me!

You knew the boy was going to win.
Somehow you knew it.

I lost everything.

Whenever you gamble, my friend,
eventually you'll lose.

Bring the parts to
the main hangar.

I'll come by your shop later
on so you can release the boy.

WATTO: You can't have him.
It wasn't a fair bet.

Would you like to discuss
it with the Hutts?

(WATTO GRUMBLES)

I'm sure they can
settle this.

Take him.

JAR JAR: Hidoe!

Well, we have all the essential parts we need.
I'm going back.

Some unfinished business.
I won't be long.

Why do I sense we've picked up
another pathetic life-form?

It's the boy who's responsible

Get this hyperdrive

Yes, Master. It
shouldn't take long.

Hey! These are yours.

Did you hear that?

Now you can make your

Will you take him with you?

- Is he to become a Jedi?
- Yes.

Our meeting was not
a coincidence.

Nothing happens by accident.

You mean I get to come

Anakin.

Training to become a Jedi
is not an easy challenge.

And even if you succeed,
It's a hard life.

But I wanna go. It's what
I've always dreamed of doing.

Can I go, Mom?

Anakin.

This path has been
placed before you.

The choice is yours alone.

I wanna do it.

QUI-GON: Then
pack your things.

- We haven't much time.

What about Mom?

Is she free too?

You're coming with

There is a question of procedure but

There is no interest

There is little chance the
senate will act on the invasion.

Chancellor Valorum seems
to think there is hope.

PALPATINE: If I may say so, Your Majesty,
the chancellor has little real power.

He is mired by baseless
accusations of corruption.

- The bureaucrats are in charge now.
- What options have we?

Our best choice would be to
push for the election...

of a stronger
supreme chancellor,

one who could control
the bureaucrats...

and give us justice.

You could call for a
vote of no confidence...

in Chancellor Valorum.

He has been our
strongest supporter.

Our only other choice would be
to submit a plea to the courts.

The courts take even longer to
decide things than the senate.

Our people are
dying, Senator.

We must do something quickly
to stop the Federation.

To be realistic,
Your Majesty,

I think we're going to have to accept
Federation control for the time being.

That is something
I cannot do.

(SHIPS ROARING)

QUI-GON: He was trained
in the Jedi arts.

My only conclusion can be
that it was a Sith lord.

Impossible. The Sith have been
extinct for a millennium.

WINDU: I do not believe the Sith could
have returned without us knowing.

YODA: Ah, hard to see,
the dark side is.

WINDU: We will use all our
resources to unravel this mystery.

We will discover the
identity of your attacker.

May the Force be with you.

YODA: (SIGHS) Master Qui-Gon.

More to say have you?

With your permission,
my master,

I have encountered a
vergence in the Force.

A vergence, you say?

Located around a person?

A boy.

His cells have the highest
concentration of midi-chlorians

I have seen in a life-form.

It is possible he was conceived
by the midi-chlorians.

WINDU: You refer to the prophecy of the
one who will bring balance to the Force.

You believe it's this boy?

- I don't presume to...
- YODA: But you do.

Revealed your opinion is.

I request the boy
be tested, Master.

YODA: Oh? Trained as a Jedi
you request for him, hmm?

Finding him was the
will of the Force.

I have no doubt of that.

(SIGHS)

Bring him before us, then.

(DOOR OPENS)

- (BEEPS)
- The boy's here to see Padme.

- WOMAN: Let him in.
- (BEEPS)

I'm sorry, Ani. But Padme's
not here right now.

AMIDALA: Who is it?

Anakin Skywalker to see
Padme, Your Highness.

I've sent Padme on an errand.

ANAKIN: I'm on my way to the Jedi
temple to start my training, I hope.

I may never see her again,
so I came to say good-bye.

We will tell her for you. We are
sure her heart goes with you.

Thank you, Your Highness.

(CARS ROARING)

(DROID BEEPING)

VALORUM: The chair recognizes the senator
from the sovereign system of Naboo.

(BEEPS)

PALPATINE: Supreme Chancellor,
delegates of the senate,

a tragedy has occurred...

which started right here with
the taxation of trade routes...

and has now engulfed our entire planet...
in the oppression of the Trade Federation.

VICEROY: This is outragous!

I object to the
senator's statements.

The chair does not recognize the senator
from the Trade Federation at this time.

PALPATINE: To state our allegations,
I present Queen Amidala,

recently elected ruler of the
Naboo who speaks on our behalf.

Honorable representatives
of the Republic,

I come to you under the
gravest of circumstances.

The Naboo system has been invaded
by the droid armies of the...

VICEROY: I object!
There is no proof!

This is incredible.

We recommend a commission be sent
to Naboo to ascertain the truth.

The Congress of
Malastare concurs...

with the honorable delegate
from the Trade Federation.

- A commission must be appointed.
- VALORUM: The point...

- Excuse me, Chancellor.
- PALPATINE: Enter the bureaucrat.

The true rulers
of the Republic.

And on the payroll of the Trade
Federation, I might add.

This is where Chancellor Valorum's
strength will disappear.

VALORUM: The point
is conceded.

Will you defer your motion
to allow a commission...

to explore the validity
of your accusations?

I will not defer.

I've come before you to resolve
this attack on our sovereignty now!

AMIDALA: I was not elected to
watch my people suffer and die...

while you discuss this
invasion in a committee.

If this body is not capable of action
I suggest new leadership is needed.

I move for a vote of no confidence
in Chancellor Valorum's leadership.

(CROWD MUTTERING)

Order!

Now they will elect a new
chancellor a strong chancellor...

one who will not let
our tragedy continue.

OBI-WAN: The boy will not pass the
council's test, Master. He's too old.

QUI-GON: Anakin will become
a Jedi, I promise you.

Do not defy the council,
Master, not again.

I shall do what I
must, Obi-Wan.

If you would just follow the code,
you would be on the council.

They will not go along
with you this time.

You still have much to
learn, my young apprentice.

ANAKIN: A ship.

A cup.

A ship.

A speeder.

YODA: Hmm.

How feel you?

Cold, sir.

- YODA: Afraid are you?
- No, sir.

- See through you we can.
- MAN: Be mindful of your feelings.

KI: Your thoughts
dwell on your mother.

- I miss her.
- YODA: Mmm.

Afraid to lose
her, I think, mmm?

What has that got to
do with anything?

Everything. Fear is the
path to the dark side.

Fear leads to anger.
Anger leads to hate.

Hate leads to suffering.

(SIGHS) I sense
much fear in you.

(SLOW TUNE PLAYS)

JAR JAR: Yousa tinking

Wesa got a grand army.

JAR JAR: Dat's why you

- (DOOR OPENS)
- PANAKA: Your highness?

Your Highness.

Senator Palpatine has been nominated to
succeed Valorum as supreme chancellor.

PALPATINE: A surprise, to
be sure, but a welcome one.

Your Majesty, if I am elected, I
promise to put an end to corruption.

Who else has been nominated?

Bail Antilles of Alderaan and
Ainlee Teem of Malastare.

I feel confident our situation will
create a strong sympathy vote for us.

I will be chancellor.

I fear by the time you have control
of the bureaucrats, Senator.

There'll be nothing left of
our people, our way of life.

I understand your
concern, Your Majesty.

Unfortunately, the Federation
has possession of our planet.

Senator, this is your arena. I
feel I must return to mine.

- I've decided to go back to Naboo.
- Go back?

But, Your Majesty, be realistic.
They'll force you to sign the treaty.

I will sign no
treaty, Senator.

My fate will be no different
than that of our people.

- Captain. Ready my ship.
- PANAKA: Your highness.

Please, Your Majesty, stay
here where it's safe.

It is clear to me now that the
Republic no longer functions.

I pray you will bring sanity and
compassion back to the senate.

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYS)

KI: The force is
strong with him.

QUI-GON: He is to
be trained, then?

No. He will not be trained.

No?

- He is too old.
- He is the chosen one.

- You must see it.
- YODA: Mmm.

Clouded this boy's future is.

I will train him, then.

I take Anakin as my
Padawan learner.

An apprentice you
have, Qui-Gon.

Impossible to
take on a second.

The code forbids it.

- Obi-Wan is ready.
- OBI-WAN: I am ready to face the trials.

Our own counsel we will
keep on who is ready.

He is headstrong,

and he has much to learn of the
living Force, but he is capable.

There is little more
he can learn from me.

YODA: Young
Skywalker's fate...

will be decided later.

WINDU: Now is not
the time for this.

The senate is voting for a
new supreme chancellor,

and Queen Amidala
is returning home,

which will put pressure on
the Federation and could

widen the confrontation.

And draw out the
queen's attacker.

WINDU: Go with the queen to Naboo and
discover the identity of this dark warrior.

This is the clue we need to
unravel the mystery of the Sith.

May the Force be you.

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)

OBI-WAN: It's not disrespect, Master.
It's the truth.

QUI-GON: From your
point of view.

The boy is dangerous.

They all sense it.
Why can't you?

His fate is uncertain.

He's not dangerous. The council
will decide Anakin's future.

That should be enough for you.
Now get on board.

(R2-D2 WHIMPERS)

Qui-Gon, sir, I don't
want to be a problem.

You won't be, Ani.

I'm not allowed to train you, so I
want you to watch me and be mindful.

Always remember:

Your focus determines
your reality.

Stay close to me and
you'll be safe.

Master, sir?

I heard Yoda talking
about midi-chlorians.

I've been wondering...
What are midi-chlorians?

Midi-chlorians are a
microscopic life-form...

that resides within
all living cells.

- They live inside me?
- Inside your cells, yes.

- And we are symbionts with them.
- Symbionts?

Life-forms living together
for mutual advantage.

Without the midi-chlorians,
life could not exist...

and we would have no
knowledge of the Force.

They continually speak to us,

telling us the will
of the Force...

When you learn to
quiet your mind,

you'll hear them
speaking to you.

I don't understand.

With time and training,
Ani, you will.

You will.

QUI-GON: Your Majesty, it is our pleasure
to continue to serve and protect you.

I welcome your help.

Senator Palpatine fears that the
Federation means to destroy me.

I assure you I will not
allow that to happen.

I'm not sure what you wish
to accomplish by this.

I will take back what's ours.

PANAKA: There are too few
of us, Your Highness.

We have no army.

I can't fight a war for you.

Yes. I need your help.

Jar Jar is on his way to

The Gungans will not
be easily swayed.

And we cannot use our
power to help her.

I'm...

I'm sorry for my
behavior, Master.

It's not my place to disagree
with you about the boy.

And I am grateful you think
I'm ready to take the trials.

You've been a good

I foresee you will become

(JAR JAR GROANING)

- QUI-GON: Captain?
- (LAUGHING)

- PANAKA: Your Highness.
- PADME: What is the situation?

Almost everyone's in camps.

A few hundred police and guards
have formed an underground

resistance movement.

I brought back as many of
the leaders as I could.

The Federation army's also much larger
than we thought, and much stronger.

Your Highness, this is a battle
I do not think that we can win.

The battle is a diversion.

The Gungans must draw the droid
army away from the cities.

PADME: R2?

(BEEPS)

We can enter the city using the secret
passages on the waterfall side.

Once we get to the main entrance Captain
Panaka will create a diversion.

PADME: Then we can enter the
palace and capture the viceroy.

Without the viceroy, they
will be lost and confused.

What do you think,
Master Jedi?

The viceroy will
be well-guarded.

The difficulty is getting
into the throne room.

Once we're inside, we
shouldn't have a problem.

There is a possibility, with this
diversion, many Gungans will be killed.

Wesa ready to do
our-san part.

PADME: We have a plan which
should immobilize the droid army.

We will send what pilots we have to
knock out the droid control ship...

orbiting the planet.

A well-conceived plan.
However, there's great risk.

QUI-GON: The weapons on your fighters
may not penetrate the shields.

OBI-WAN: And there's
an even bigger danger.

If the viceroy escapes,
Your Highness,

he will return with
another droid army.

Well, that is why we must not
fail to get the viceroy.

Everything depends on it.

(BEEPS, WHISTLES)

She is more foolish
than I thought.

We are sending all troops to meet
this army assembling near the swamp.

It appears to be made
up of primitives.

This will work to
our advantage.

I have your approval to
proceed, then, my lord?

Wipe them out.

QUI-GON: No. It's too late.
It's-

- No!
- Obi-Wan.

Promise.

- Promise me, you will train the boy.
- Yes, Master.

(GROANING) He...
is the chosen one.

He... will bring balance.

Train him.

SABE: Now, Viceroy.

You're going to have to go back to
the senate and explain all this.

I think you can kiss your
trade franchise good-bye.

PALPATINE: We are indebted to you
for your bravery, Obi-Wan Kenobi.

And you, Young Skywalker.

We will watch your career
with great interest.

(SIGHS)

Congratulations on your
election, Chancellor.

Your boldness has saved
our people, Your Majesty.

It's you who should
be congratulated.

Together. We shall bring peace
and prosperity to the Republic.

YODA: (GRUNTS) Confer on you.

The level of Jedi knight
the council does.

But agree with your taking this
boy as your Padawan learner...

- I do not.
- OBI-WAN: Qui-Gon believed in him.

(YODA SIGHING)

The chosen one.
The boy may be...

Neverless. Grave danger
I fear in his training.

Master Yoda, I gave
Qui-Gon my word.

- I will train Anakin.
- (GRUNTING)

Without the approval of
the council, if I must.

Qui-Gon's defiance I sense in you.
Need that you do not.

Agree with you the
council does.

Your apprentice Skywalker...

will be.

(R2-D2 WHIMPERING SADLY)

What will happen to me now?

The council have granted me
permission to train you.

You will be a Jedi.

I promise.

(VOCALIZING CONTINUES)

WINDU: There's no doubt the
mysterious warrior was a Sith.

YODA: Hmm. Always
two there are.

No more, no less.

(SIGHS) The master
and an apprentice.

But which was destroyed? The
master or the apprentice?
