Episode I: The Bandwidth Menace

Star Wars fans with visions of a galaxy far, far away can catch the new preview trailer for Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Lucasfilm and Apple announced today that the trailer is available exclusively in QuickTime 3.0 format from Apple’s servers. If you have some time on your hands and a fast connection (which may not help, depending on Apple’s server load), you can view one of three versions: a 25 MB file measuring 480 by 216 pixels with stereo sound, a 13 MB file measuring 320 by 144 pixels with stereo sound, or an 11 MB file measuring 240 by 128 pixels with mono sound. The movie will open in theaters 19-May-99.
