Okay, let’s get this out of the way straight off the bat. I’m a prequel fan. I love George Lucas’ handling of the Star Wars Saga in its entirety. Sure, I have qualms with bits and pieces, (Boba Fett as a stupid, pouting kid and Han shooting second, come to mind), but as a whole, all six films are, in my view, the best of the best that celluloid has to offer. I’ll even go as far as to say that Episode III is my favorite of the six movies (ESB coming a close second). Now that, that is out in the open I’ll begin… anyone still there?
Lucasfilm has done an admirable job of keeping Star Wars in the mainstream since it reemerged as a dominating entity in 1996. Especially when you take into account the fact that its theatrical incarnation ended in 2005. Of course, I’m not claiming that Star Wars had disappeared before ’96, but it had slumped out of the mainstream’s sweet embrace to a more nuanced status. It appears that Lucas is of the mind now though, that like it or not, Star Wars is here to stay with new content constantly pumping new blood into the franchise...Enjoying this?
