Should the Prequels be more included into the franchise going forward?

I quite like how the prequels were included in Rogue One. There were a few subtle callbacks like the Turbo Tank and Coruscant that didn’t really affect the story, but they were nice to see if you wanted a more cohesive/connected universe, and they were easily ignorable if you hate the prequels. Other callbacks to the era like Saw Gerrera, Bail Organa and so on all made sense within the context of the story.

I loved how they made the bigget PT era character (Saw) an insane mess who had a crappy CGI pet. Very meta.

Hahahah

I hadn’t even thought about wearing glasses… is that just impossible? I haven’t seen a 3D release in 2 years which coincides with me having to wear specs. I don’t think I’ll buy a ticket to find out.

It not a gimmick. 3D has been around in one form or another since the 50’s.

But it never really stuck. I don’t think I’ve talked to anyone that actually enjoys watching movies like that.

Well it comes in waves like any money making fad. It came back in the 80s, it came in 2009, now people have lost interest. I prefer 2D IMAX style experiences which don’t distract from the film and don’t have lenses that darken what you are seeing. As for the home release market I can’t see it taking off in a big way.

The mid 90’s saw some strange ideas come out of Kenner.

At least the old Mini Rigs back in the 80’s looked like something that was just “off camera” in the OT. In Kenner’s defense, they did follow up with more sensible things like a Hoth Rebel soldier with a laser cannon, and the Probe Droid.

Haha so goofy. There was a Boba Fett Deluxe too I remember. At one point I’m sure there was a Han Solo that came with the Falcon turret, but they decided that it needed an action feature so the barrels of the gun itself fired out for some reason.

I like TFA. I like Rian Johnson’s previous work better than J. J. Abrams’s. Therefore, I am expecting to like TLJ at least as much as TFA, probably more.

This is sort of my line of thinking too, we got the kinetic action of JJ out of the way, now for something interesting please Rian.
