Ewan, Meet Obi-Wan: A 'Star Wars' Prequels Rewind

By
When George Lucas initially announced he would indeed move forward with a prequel trilogy to his beloved Star Wars saga, most fans rejoiced -- then a legion cringed after experiencing the likes of Jar Jar Binks in 1999's awkwardly titled Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace.
But there was no denying that the excitement surrounding an all-new Star Wars trilogy was more powerful than ever, and ET was there to go in-depth with the heroes of The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.
In celebration of The Phantom Menace back on the big screen in 3D on Friday, go back a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away for our vintage ET interviews with Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, Liam Neeson, little Jake Lloyd, Hayden Christiansen and even George Lucas himself as they reveal Star Wars secrets, talk lightsabers and Darth Vader -- and confront their action-figure likenesses.
