Seeing the Saga in order...
Time
I think if GL made all six movies back in the 70s and 80s then it would have been better. After all six came out in 2005 GL did say to watch them 1-6 . The only thing is the pt is all CGI which makes them differnt .

Abit off topic but the PT dvds put the OT dvds to shame coz of the extres . TPM has 6 hours of extres
and loads more on ep II and III .

The best thing to do is watch the classics and forget about the pt

its not true is it ?
Time
I found this at wikipedia.org

George Lucas began writing the new Star Wars trilogy on November 1, 1994.[2] The screenplay for The Phantom Menace was adapted from Lucas' 15-page outline that was written in 1976. The early outline was originally designed to help Lucas track the character backstories and what events had taken place before the original trilogy.[2] While the working title for the film was The Beginning,[2] Lucas later revealed the true title to be The Phantom Menace; a title which, in contrast to the more self-explanatory titles of the other films, is ambiguous

He didnt have the saga planned since 1976 did he ?
