-What would you say [to people who hated the prequels]?

-I’d say, “More power to you!” I mean, the films are liked by half the people, they’re hated by half the people. You know, it’s the same thing with the critics. I mean, all the Star Wars films have been trashed and all the Star Wars films have been praised. So, it’s very hard to say, “Well I’m going to take this group and say, you know, they don’t like it therefore I am going to change it.” I mean, I am making the movie that I think is appropriate to what I am doing. It’s not market research. I am not like a studio. I do what I want to do. I don’t check it with an audience. I say this is the story. This is the story I’m going to tell for very personal reasons and I’m going to go ahead and do that.
