    The children that liked it becoming old enough to create content saying it's good, doesn't retroactively make it good.

    ...you do realize 99.9% of the Eu was horrible trash and not in any way better at all than the worst bits of the new stuff?

    "Objectively good" lmao

    The new stuff being prequel level bad is pure idiotic memes level, it's nowhere *close* as bad.

    TBH a lot of the prequels being liked is highly ironic I feel. They make for hilarious memes.

    The overall story arc for the prequels is very good.

    Where it fails is the dialogue which is utter garbage.
    And the comic relief by Jar Jar is a miss so wide, your not sure what he was aiming at.

    Lastly, on many locations it doesn't feel starwarsy. We are used to filthy chaotic worlds.
    Maybe it was a necessity from what they could make at the time.
    Probably would have been better with less CGI and more actual sets.
    The Epic Store is amazing, I've been able to save so much money by not buying their games.

    Prequels were way better than TLJ, with the exception of attack of the clones.

    TLJ was an absolute farce.

    I feel odd, i liked the prequels overall.
    And its unfortunately a lot better then both new films...

    I have a small hope this will be an original story and not a remake of Return of the Jedi.

    So nothing was good except the general outline in other words?
