Adrian Dunbar was originally cast as Bail Organa and made a brief appearance in the senate sequence. When his performance was cut, the character's name was changed to Bail Antilles (mentioned on screen by Captain Panaka). A picture of Dunbar still appeared in two publications: The Ultimate Star Wars Episode I Sticker Book (as Senator Bail Organa) and Star Wars Episode I Who's Who (as Bail Antilles). See more »

Fantastic movie - worthy addition to the star wars saga
Unlike some other viewers or critics who underrated this movie (and sometimes reviewed before having seen it and made Lucas very angry) I believe it's a fantastic movie, a successful addition to the saga.
It's full of action, adventure, incredible jedi-battles with a refreshing hint of politics and diplomacy. (These last two points were absent from the originals since the Empire and the Rebels were in a state of civil war. Check out Star Wars' introduction.)
We can see at last see the "old" republic and how it worked and functioned; in fact setting the background for the events to come.
We have in this movie all the elements of the originals with touches of Lucas' magic: the queen's incredible dresses, the computer generated characters which completely blend in the action, Darth Maul's painted face (which has some asian influence in it) and the human interactions master/student conflicts, tricks, jokes and deceptions.
All in all a 10-star movie!
