George Lucas started the whole Star Wars saga In Medias Res (the middle) which led to a lot of people being confused, but he did it anyway and got through shitty trailers to make the biggest film franchise of all time. Then, when he realized technology was where it needed to be in order to make the beginning of the story, he went for it, and essentially got shit on by the world. He cared about the prequels so much that he waited DECADES before attempting it so that they would be good enough.
Respect George Lucas, respect the prequels.
Don’t even get me started on the fact that Hayden was probably playing Anakin exactly the way Anakin was supposed to be… not because he’s a shitty actor.
That is all.
