Finally, we know the director! I think it's a good team to start with. Now for the two year long wait to see it come to life.

What are you talking about? I know a lot of people who like it, myself included. We all have similar objections to parts of it; too much slapstick being one. We who like the prequels just don't have a reason to be as loud as those who hate it, because if you like something -- why would you have to yell it from the rooftops?

Well, the movies were all entertaining, but Jar Jar Binks really ruined Phantom Menace bad, kind of how the Ewocks ruined EP. VI.... (Return of the Jedi)

A movie for younger Audiences is fine, things like Jar Jar Binks to try and get a 5yo boy to be entertained is another matter and I will NEVER forgive Lucas for that blunder!

I also think he forgets, hit main Audience has aged some, its not 1983 anymore when he decided Ewocks could take on the Empires best garrison and beat them.... lol.

I like the ewoks, they didnt ruin anything, people just keep saying that because they think it makes them look all grown up and cool.

The target audience is kids, it is as simple as that, while i like the original trilogy the best, ,my younger brother hardly knows those movies think the seen them once because i forced him, but he loves the prequels.

People just need to grow up and get over it.

Nothing wrong with the Ewoks at all. And for the most part they got trounced scattering all roads and directions. ROTJ arguably had better writing than the other 2 Star Wars movies. Although acting wasn't as good and maybe a little bit of complacency had crept in by this point.

I remember watching this back in '83 being absoloutly glued to it. With subtitles for Jabba while his voice boomed fear in the viewer. Or the Bouush scene. While I do agree Ewoks were a step next a more marketable toy, their inclusion in no way marred an other wise fantastic end to that particular trilogy. And indeed this hate for them has really only came about in the last 10 years.. drunken debates with aquaintances over the years were more centred on the soft death of Boba Fett.... what the hell is up with that family!!!
... the search continues for an actual Star Wars MMO - your stories are weak old man... not to mention races, bugs, quests, features, pvp and on and on and on

Well, I did not like the Ewocks in 1983 either.... lol. We all have different tastes, Ewocks and Binks could have been avoided in either movie with similar or more success...

Assuming you guys probably loved Jar Jar Binks as well, just showes we have different taste. I am 44 now and I love movies like Toy Story, Nemo, The Incredibles, so its not about those kind of charachters, just those kind of charachters in Star Wars....

I can't even watch EP.1 without getting anoyed..... Here we are, a massive battle with droids and Binks, bumbleing around like a idiot, did not sit well with me at all... That should have been WAY more Epic, not childish.

Yet R2D2 and C3PO were a great balance in adding humor and youthful entertainment without going too far....

Stay away from Star Trek too, or pretty much any show where the main cast solves their problems through juryrigging incredibly dangerous machines. The heroes save the day by reciting a litany of science-sounding words and then proceed to abuse science to death by doing basically magic. I can see why it has to be so, ofc - a hard scifi show would probably be incredibly boring. Not to mention short if anything on the ship goes wrong, ever.
