The Final Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker might have each break up opinion straight down the center for very totally different causes, however most Star Wars followers are nonetheless of the opinion that Episodes VII, VIII and IX are vastly superior to the Prequel Trilogy. The Phantom Menace was the one most extremely anticipated transfer in historical past when it hit theaters in the summertime of 1999, however that enthusiasm virtually immediately evaporated.
Gone was the sense of scale and awe-inspiring marvel that had characterised the traditional originals, changed by wood appearing, unconvincing CGI on the expense of the tangible sensible results that had at all times been a key a part of the franchise’s enchantment, whereas the mythology creaked underneath the burden of Midichlorians and Senate machinations, and that’s with out even mentioning Jar Jar Binks.
It seems that the Prequel Trilogy has one main supporter, with Kanye West adamant that the maligned trilogy is a lot better than something that’s come out of the Disney period. The musician, who remains to be technically within the working to change into President of the US, clearly prefers the films that George Lucas had a direct hand in.
“That is about to make me mad, proper right here. The first time you’ve seen me get mad in an interview. They mentioned George Lucas’ prequels have been worse than the corporate-made Disney Star Wars. Like Revenge of the Sith? We noticed how Darth Vader was made. Like, I watched that ten occasions throughout COVID. ‘Don’t leap Anakin, I’ve obtained the excessive floor!’. I’m saying the prequels are higher than something, and I’m sorry Disney/Star Wars design workforce, no man, that is George. That is his child. That factor was set in his coronary heart to point out us as kids to point out us The Hero’s Journey.”
When it comes to the essential consensus, The Rise of Skywalker is the bottom rated Star Wars film on Rotten Tomatoes, however The Drive Awakens and The Final Jedi are above all three of the prequels. Each fan is entitled to their opinion, and primarily based on the backlash that confronted the ultimate two chapters in The Skywalker Saga there’s most likely lots of people on the market that agree with Kanye West, even when the Prequel Trilogy has but to endure any type of reevaluation that paints them as misunderstood fashionable classics.
