I think that Star Wars will be the only franchise in film history that people will actually CELEBRATE being remade, when it inevitably happens in 15+ years time and after Lucas has become one big neck.
I can see what he was trying to convey over the course of the prequels. The machiavellian machinations of Palpatine and the fall of Anakin would have made for very gripping tales, had the script and screenplay been written by someone else…..and then given to people who can act.
How the f**k did Hayden Christensen get through an audition? Did all the competition die in a fire or something?
