9. The Phantom Menace Soundtrack Listing Spoiled A Key Death
The anticipation for The Phantom Menace can only be rivalled by The Force Awakens, and things reached fever pitch prior to release. Fans were rabid for any details they could get their hands on, and would even pay to see movies just to watch the trailer before leaving. Lucasfilm managed to keep a lot of the key surprises hidden away; and seemingly didn't realise that John Williams no nonsense soundtrack titles would give away a key surprise. The official soundtrack was released two weeks ahead of the film, so of course fans were going to pick up a copy. They probably regretted giving the back a quick scan though; two of the tracks are titled Qui-Gons Noble End and The High Council Meeting and Qui-Gons Funeral, leaving no doubt of the characters fate. Fans probably could have figured out Qui-Gon Jinn wasnt going to make to the end of the prequel trilogy, but it was a shame to read such a blatant spoiler just ahead of release.
