Watch Excited Fans React to STAR WARS: THE PHANTOM MENACE in 1999

"There's no way it's going to be a disappointment."

When Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace was about to be released in theaters, fans were overcome with excitement! I was! I couldn't wait to see the movie, and I even spent a few days in line to get in to see it. Ultimately, I walked out of the theater overcome with complete and utter disappointment. 

I've got a funny video for you to watch below that was sent in to me by a friend. The video was posted by Funny Local News Bloopers, and it shows interviews withfans who were waiting to get into see The Phantom Menace being interviewed. They are overwhelmed with excitement, just like we are now as we wait for Star Wars: The Force Awakens to open in theaters. We're expecting a much better outcome, though!

One of the crazier things about this video is the interviews that were conducted with fans after they watched the movie. So many of them actually liked the movie! After I saw it, there was nothing but grumbling and complaints, but here we see a bunch of Star Wars fans who actually enjoyed the movie that so many of us think is terrible.
