The Phantom Menace gets a lot of abuse from Star Wars fans, but is it possible it featured a secret appearance from a character who we wouldn’t meet properly until The Force Awakens?
When Reddit user Baldrick1986 was watching Episode 1 recently, he spotted something amazing.
Do you see it? No?
Let’s take a closer look.
It’s Maz Kanata, the Delphic alien and Resistance supporter played by Lupita Nyong’o! Maz is over 1,000 years old, and it seems her history with the Skywalkers goes back a long, long way.
Or it’s just a coincidence. Regardless, it’s a pretty amazing spot.
