Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, one of cinema's all-time more divisive contributions, was the very first piece of content in the Star Wars franchise to officially appear on DVD, almost two and a half years after its original theatrical release. The two-disc set features a generous helping of special features, and after inserting the first disc, one of three different menu schematics is loaded, a practice that would also be used on the original DVDs of Episodes II-VI.
