Other Info: This one-sheet conveys Drew Struzan's conceptual "a boy who may bring balance to the Force, but the long dormant Sith resurface to claim their original glory..." poster design. It contains a dark frame around the red/purplish overtones illustration with sun spots and glare streams spilling into it. The main image is made up of a collage of characters including, Anakin Skywalker, Qui-Gon Jinn, Padmé Amidala, C-3PO and R2-D2, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jar Jar Binks, a N-1 starfighter, and the red/black face of the major antagonist Darth Maul, set behind the cast looking menacing in the background. The poster has the tagline - "Every Saga Has A Beginning" at the top and the cast and credit information at the bottom. The Star Wars: Episode I logo is found in the bottom third of the banner, along with the Lucasfilm Ltd., Dolby Digital, Digital DTS Sound, SDDS, THX, and 20th Century Fox emblems. Drew's signature can be found on the left hand side of the artwork. Interesting Note* - For the release of "Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace", George Lucas dictated that, contractually, Struzan's poster was the only art the foreign distributors could use, and other than the text, it could not be modified in any way.

Variations*: This one-sheet has an identical counterpart that is exactly the same as this version, except it was printed without the MPAA film rating classification for the movie. So, the PG Ratings box has been omitted on the one-sheet. That poster is known as version "B".
