CLASSIC IMAGE: PADAWANS OF LIGHT AND DARK COLLIDE!
He told the Council that he was ready to take his trials, now Obi-Wan Kenobi really is in the thick of them as he locks lightsaber blades in battle against the shocking re-emergent threat of the Sith, primarily via its shadowy assassin Darth Maul, in this great image from the superb finale lightsaber duel closing EPISODE I.
Star Wars, created by George Lucas, had returned in a big way with 1999's The Phantom Menace, seeing-in the proper introduction of the dreaded Sith as well as more revealed on the fascinating Jedi heritage concurrent to their eventual demise from Padawan gone prophetic dark side warrior Anakin Skywalker. Returning saga composer John Williams, once more with the London Symphony Orchestra alongside him, would come up with a truly fitting, exciting and genuinely mythic new overarching music theme for this all-new and groundbreaking Prequel Trilogy: Duel of the Fates, a track whose intensity and foreboding would be backed up with memorable accompaniment from the London Voices Choir.
The original soundtrack to The Phantom Menace returns in remastered form via Walt Disney Records, alongside the rest of the Prequels and the Classic Trilogy soundtracks. Each CD is available at a great value price, and with individual free gift collectible mini-poster.
