Default Re: The Star Wars Fanbase - How do they feel?

Jedi Spirit, I think you may be making a small conceptual error by assuming that the relative financial success of the prequels will lead to their "formula" being followed in future Star Wars films. The fact is that their is a wealth of critical opinion- you can call it bias if you like- that has led to the prequels being established in the popular mindset as tarnishing the collective view of Star Wars. You argue quite persuasively that this isn't a fair evaluation of the movies. But the likelihood is that efforts will be made to disassociate the future films from any negative brand equity attached to the prequels.

I just hope they don't "go darker".
