This has been driving me nuts ever since the original home video release of Episode I: TPM came out.
Does anyone remember a prologue before the actual film that went something like this:
It showed the planet Earth hanging in space.
NARRATOR: At first, we all thought Earth would always be the perfect home for us. But then…
Then a bunch of little spaceships zipped into frame, started shooting lasers at Earth, and blasted it to pieces (Star Wars ships). If I remember correctly, at least one ship escaped Earth; I can’t remember, though. I only saw Episode I once in the theatre.
Did ANYONE else see this scene in the theatre? My brother remembered this scene distinctly. He went to the same showing that I did. Everyone else I have asked has NO memory of this.
Please help? Have I gone mad? Has anyone else seen this scene? Is it available on any prints anywhere?
