I don’t think the prequels are great, but I’ve got a ticket for the nine-movie marathon and I’m going to watch them all. Star Wars is forever, but I am not, so while I’m here, I am going to take part in all of the Star Wars I can. There’s just nothing like a Star Wars event, especially the opening night of a new movie.
I wasn’t crazy about TPM or AotC, but I couldn’t wait for RotS. I just can’t imagine being at home while others are participating in the spectacle of it all.
As I said earlier, Star Wars will grow and evolve over time. There will be highs and lows, and growing pains. It’s not going to be the same as 1977. It’s a different world now. That makes those Originals even more special to me. I can still appreciate what Star Wars is for the next generation too. I can’t wait to see what comes next.
