The 5 Most Obnoxiously Exclamatory Voice Over Lines in New Toddler-Friendly The Phantom Menace 3D Trailer

One of the more painful aspects of George Lucas' Phantom Menace when it was originally released was that, in addition to being a terrible movie, all the people who grew up with Star Wars had this vague notion that Lucas' series would grow up with them. But instead of really targeting Phantom Menace toward the adults that grew up with the series, Lucas geared it toward a new generation of kids. It was, in effect, a kid's film. A live-action cartoon. In the latest spot for Phantom Menace 3D, which hits theaters this month, the voice-over guy really brings home that message. I'm not positive where this commercial is airing, but my guess is Nick, Jr.

It's unsettling, to say the least.


Here's a sampling of the dumb, over-enthusiastic lines you can hear in the trailer.

  • "Hurry up, Qui Gon. You don't want to be late for the celebration!"

  • "That sound can mean only one thing. Pod Racing! The fastest most intense sport EVAR!"

  • "Oh YEAH! I almost forgot. It's not all fun, as long as Darth Maul is around!"

  • "Chill out, R2!"

  • "And now that it's in 3D, the action isn't so far away. You're right in the middle of it!"
