This is a very conservative edit of The Phantom Menace. The worst excesses and redundancies are excised or muted (one 'yippee' remains). Most of the Gungan City and 'Planet Core' sequence is intact with minor trims for pacing. The most annoying of Jar Jar's goofy antics have been either removed or trimmed. The Chosen One prophecy, Virgin Birth, and Midichlorians remain, for better or for worse.

With time (and since viewing the Sequel Trilogy) I have gradually warmed to what George Lucas attempted to do (and its 'rhyming' with both Episodes IV and VI) and have been more forgiving of how different Episode I is from the Original Trilogy, so I must say that I enjoyed this edit very much. If you wish to enjoy the original film with slightly less cringe, this edit is a good choice.
