CLASSIC ART: EPISODE I's WORLD OF BEAUTY AND GATHERING EVIL...
Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that STAR WARS EPISODE I: THE PHANTOM MENACE returns to world cinemas from next week, and I'm sure cinema chains, Pepsi Cola and popcorn manufacturers will be very happy to hear it, too, as fans and families make a new pilgrimage for what will hopefully be the release of the entire six film saga, and back proudly where it belongs: on the big screen!
