Something I would like to see in a Phantom Menace edit is the removal of Podracing Arena. Make the Podrace seem like a local thing that takes place out in the desert. More a drag race than a chariot race. Tatooine is also way too populated/ prominent in The Phantom Menace.
I always imagined it as a lot of people coming to where the races were, like most of the crowd were out-of-towners following the series. But then again, Anakin wouldn’t have been able to race offworld anywhere. Maybe there’s a local league thing run by the Hutts, which was temporarily hosting the main event?
