"You've been working on that thing for years."
"It's never gonna run."
―Amee and Melee, referring to Anakin Skywalker's podracer — (audio) Listen (file info)[3]

Amee was a human[3] girl[4] who was born on the planet Tatooine[1] in around 38 BBY.[2] She was a close friend of the slave Anakin Skywalker and spent time socialising with him and his friends Wald and Kitster Banai.[4] In 32 BBY,[5] when Amee was six,[2] the trio visited Skywalker in Slave Quarters Row with the children Seek and Melee. Skywalker, who was working on his podracer in a courtyard, informed them all that he would be taking part in the Boonta Eve Classic podrace the next day.[3]

The other children were dubious about Skywalker's chances in the race, and Amee[3] doubtfully[4] pointed out that he had been working on the vehicle for years. Seek then suggested they all go play a ball game, and Amee left the courtyard with him, Wald and Melee, giggling as they went. Skywalker went on to win the podrace and leave Tatooine.[3] Amee was the only member of her friend group to wear braces,[4] and also wore a brown dress. She had blonde hair, and fair skin.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Amee was played by Katie Lucas, daughter of director George Lucas,[6] in the 1999 prequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. Katie was credited under the pseudonym "Jenna Green".[3] In the script, Amee also says Melee's only line of dialogue[7] which is also incorrectly attributed to her in the 2017 reference book Star Wars: Geektionary: The Galaxy from A - Z.[4]
