I was reading the star wars archives book ep 1-3, and this image of George Lucas, and his t-shirt is epic.

My opinion: regardless of your exact opinion of the prequels, George Lucas deserves respect for how much he *tried* to push the limits of special affects. When you push yourself to the limit your mistakes along the way become more visible, and that’s why people don’t want to give George credit for the things that are great about the prequels. I feel like in the prequels deep and mature themes were explored much more than in the originals. I still like both.

The prequels were so ahead of their time. The bar was so high after that it made the sequel trilogy feel like a complete step backwards. It’s a tragedy that Lucas wasn’t able to finish his saga the way he intended. Love your show. #RemakeTheSequelTrilogy

Personally I would sacrifice all of the CGI and FX in order to give way to better story telling and more interesting characters. The lack of character development(Anakin aside) or genuine concern for the characters was really the downside for me in the prequel trilogy.

He was used to criticism from the elite... before American Graffiti released, the studio almost didn't release it and said it was a bad movie... which, of course, is far from the truth. George's interview by director Christopher Nolan tells this story. George took pride that this film the studio called "bad" went on to be a critically acclaimed coming of age story.

George Lucas was a youngish guy(he was 32) when he wrote and directed what we now call Episode 4: A New Hope. He was a new writer/director at the time, he had only wrote THX 1138, and American Graffiti. It's amazing 20th Century Fox even wanted to co-produce and distribute the original Star Wars movie. He had the ideas in notebooks, as shown in the bonus features of Episode 1: The Phantom Menace(on the second disc) it shows him with these notebooks and talking about where Anakin Skywalker had been a slave, and joined the Jedi as a child. It was facinating to watch. The feature is called " All I Need Is An Idea". I'm truly grateful George Lucas created the Prequels Trilogy. I was 22 in 1999(Gen Xer) so I saw the Original Trilogy on VHS as a child. I could never have imagined as a child in the 80's, that George Lucas would make Episodes 1, 2, and 3. I'm so glad he did. I loved seeing young Obi-Wan and his Master Qui-Gon(we didn't know he existed) as major characters, and Anakin as a young man too, wanting to be with Padme(we could have never known Luke and Leia's mom was a queen, and later a senator. The clone wars would not be depicted until CGI could do it justice with The Clone Wars series. Some fans ragged on the Prequels. I always liked them(Jar Jar is still lame)I salute George Lucas for his vision of the Prequels.

Episode 1 is THE only movie I went to see at least 8-9 times. When the VHS came out? Me & my (now deceased) best friend would make/recieve THE call 'Phantom Menace?' & we'd watch it, still astounded Many times.

George was not simple in any terms, and his laughing at a bad review is testament to that. The whole notion of attachments, fear of loss leading to hate, anger and suffering is directly from the Bhagavad Gita, when Lord Krishna (in George's case, Yoda or Obi-Wan) teached Arjuna (Anakin) about fulfilling his duty. George read this, and his mind is on the same genius level as Tesla, Oppenhiemer and other great thinkers.

Anakin's mental health was definitely a factor! No one goes on a killing spree and kills children and say that they are in good mental health. I think a big part of it could be some PTSD and potential issues with adjustment. He might have had some good distress tolerance that came to him naturally being a slave, but that got maxed out years ago and jedi training probably lacked the tools necessary to help him replenish that. He probably also experienced underlying depression. This is then compounded by making someone with unresolved trauma a war general. Episode 3 should also be a clear reminder of the importance of mental health and having mental health services available... you know instead of just telling people to release shit into the force. 🤷🏿‍♀️ just saying🤷🏿‍♀️

Let's not act like EVERYTHING this man George did was gospel. I love the guy and respect him for the world he created and it's been a huge part of my life since I was 4 but to this day the prequels can really drag at times and i honestly believe if he wouldve just let someone else direct and write the dialogue and he produced and provided the story, they wouldve been way better paced and acted. Attack of the clones could've used this ten fold. I respect the prequels and appreciate them for what they are, but as far as movie entertainment, the sequels are better paced and more entertaining overall IMO. Revenge of the sith is still my second fav star wars film behind empire and phantom menace holds up way better without all the hype it had when it was released. Attack of the clones is just ass.

He lived in the shadow of those critics until Star Wars, when it eclipsed his own feelings about how good it was. Later I think he got a big head about it. (The "special edition" effect). By the time the prequels happened he was hardened to it. And that's how we got cardboard Qui-Gon.

"No political or social commentary...?" Maybe it was a coincidence but I saw the blockade of Naboo as an allusion to the blockade of IRAQ, which I had no clue was still going on at the time Episode One premiered! A blockade which led to the death of nearly half a million people, BTW anyway, I always loved The Prequels, Unsurprisingly, just like with the OT, the "darkest" movie was my favorite!

Yes, there were changes made to the prequels in the blu-ray release. The one I know for certain is that the Episode I puppet of Yoda was replaced with the Episode III level textured CGI Yoda. It seems they didn't do that in Episode II so he looks less detailed in II than I for that reason.

The Prequels achieved George's intended vision so what's to tweak? Perhaps they could make 'extended editions' as was done with LOTR, adding in some of the important deleted scenes. Like the visit to Padme's family home, Padme's meeting to begin the formation of the Rebel Alliance and her tense showdown with Palpatine in his office in ROTS? Those scenes all already exist on the DVD versions though. And the Sequels might possibly get remade in the new 'Filoniverse' once Disney sorts itself out. Perhaps along the lines of George's original drafts and with all new actors? Fans really want it so it's definitely possible.

Look, the prequels have their problems. The original trilogy has its problems too. George Lucas is bad at writing dialogue, that's a big part of it. But there's two things that George Lucas is absolutely fantastic at. One is world building. He can imagine and write and create amazing new alien worlds like no other. Every single planet in the Lucas 6 films has some super distinct, memorable feature. From galaxy-spanning governments to the attack patterns of desert tribes on a backwater outer rim planet. The other is that he's really good at finding people who are capable of creating stuff better than he can do himself. It's these things that allow his work to effectively capture hearts and minds, as it's been doing since 1977. Anyways, how telling is it that the reviewer his shirt quotes thinks that a movie is bad if it isn't making some self-righteous political or social commentary? Demonstrates a failure to understand that this movie, this series, is a fantasy world, and because George is good at world building, he can build a world that stands on its own legs and doesn't have to be a political commentary about the modern world. Even if people can draw parallels between them. Seeing Episode IV in 1977, shortly after the Vietnam war, some anti-war people interpret it as showing the valiant struggle of the Vietnamese people, represented by the Rebel Alliance, fighting against an all-powerful Imperialist oppressor. while at the same time, pro-war people interpret it as showing the desperate struggle of American troops fighting for the freedom of a foreign land with limited resources, hostile terrain, and the ever-present looming threat of an Imperialist oppressor. The beauty of it is that both groups can find themselves and their ideals in the heroes of this story. The irony is, they're both wrong. The Emipre and the Rebellion are not America and China, nor are they China and America. They don't have to be, because George can create worlds, not just rename things. Incidentally, just like factions can be themselves and not analogues, characters can have character and not be blank slates for an audience to see themselves in. Star wars is a fantasy. It's an escape from the real world into a fantasy world. Unfortunately, as much as I'd love to see George's version of the sequel trilogy, I believe it's too late for that. For several reasons, mostly Kathleen Kennedy, Bob Iger, and of course Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill. The latter might come back for George, but I doubt Ford would want to come back again. And having other actors replace them would be ...weird.

I was 25 in 1999. I'll never forget the experience and build up to TPM. It was my first SW since 1983 and while it did not live up to my expectations, it's understandable. I was 10 when I saw ROTJ in theaters so I am a die hard Ewok fan. Older fans feel differently. I truly feel it's all about how old you were when you first encounter the films.

George has admitted dialogue isn't his strong suit: Lucas had consulted his co-writers from American Graffiti (Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz) to sharpen the dialogue, which he felt lacked humour and bounce, and although he rejected most of what they came up with, their new ideas gave Lucas renewed confidence in his work. Regarding A New Hope: Lucas later commented on the contributions of Huyck and Katz, in the book Star Wars: The Annotated Screenplays: Dialogue has never been my strong point, and so I talked to Willard and Gloria and asked them to do a quick dialogue polish. I gave them the fourth draft of the script, and they just improved the dialogue where they felt they could make a contribution. Then I took their changes, and sometimes I rewrote some of their lines. Some of their dialogue of course changed again when we started shooting. Some of it survived; some of it didn’t. They did about thirty percent of the dialogue.
