I believe the prequels are better in a lot of ways.
From the acrobatic and intense lightsabe duels to chasing a bounty hunter through busy Corosaunt traffic, the prequel action blows the cheesy saber clashes from the origanls out of the water
Yes, Han,Lea,Vader, Lando and Luke are all amazing but it kind of stops there. Obi Wan,Qui Gon, Anakin, Mace, Grevious, Maul, Jango, all of them had such better design and presence then the original cast.
Anakins journey was allot more fun than Luke’s, we got to see him as a kid, see what tormented him growing up, we see the amazing connection with him and Obi Wan, and ultimately the tragedy of him losing everything he had aqquired throughout the trilogy.
I could go on but I’d rather hear what peoples reasons are for preferring the originals. I love all 8 movies don’t get me wrong!
