Star Wars Episode VII: A Newer Hope

There was a time when Gungans didn’t exist.

But if you’re like me, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to remember what that was like. In fact, I find it almost impossible to remember Star Wars the way it was. Another George – Orwell, not Lucas – once wrote that “he who controls the present controls the past”, and that was the problem. For too long the history of that galaxy far, far away was at the mercy of an incurable revisionist, someone who didn’t mind treading on the memories of others. This persona of the meddlesome tinker, however, masked a more embarrassing reality, I believe – and it’s that despite being both the creator and custodian of this universe, Lucas never really got what made it so special.

The story is too old to be commented.

"There was a time when Gungans didn’t exist." I stopped reading after that since the article is probably just this dude saying that they shouldn't make the new films like the prequels.

If you don't like the prequels you're not a Star Wars fan, end of story.

Or perhaps, just perhaps, you weren't alive when the originals came out. Maybe you were, I don't know, but to post such an ridiculous comment screams immaturity, end of story.

The prequels were bad movies for me (last one not so much) and just because people don't like them doesn't mean they aren't true fans. Grow up.
