What it's about:

Join the celebration as Star Wars returns to cinemas. Discover how the epic story of Anakin Skywalker begins — on the big screen for the first time ever in 3D.

A young slave boy on the desert planet Tatooine, Anakin is strong in the Force, and an amazing podracer pilot. Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn discovers Anakin and sees his potential to be a great Jedi Knight.

Meanwhile, the droid army of the greedy Trade Federation invades the peaceful planet of Naboo as part of a secret plot by the Sith to gain power. In defending Queen Amidala of Naboo, the Jedi Knights will cross lightsaber blades with the deadly Sith Lord, Darth Maul.
 
What the critics thought:

"A pop-culture calamity, a soulless, passionless film whose only real effect was to smudge the happy memories of the three originals."
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"The added visual depth does little to disguise quite how flat everything in between is."
- Matt Maytum, Total Film

"I will say this: the time and money they spent working on this post-conversion is evident in the final result. It is technically very impressive."
- Drew McWeeny, HitFix
