Default Should the CGI in the Prequels be updated?

We all know the negative reception these films have gotten, and what used to be very advanced special effects badly used, is now CGI that has aged quite badly, this is expecialy true in Episode I and II.

The Prequels will always be part of the main canon, there is no changing that, however, if any film needs a "special edition" it's the Prequels, the creatures now look like unfinished effects, but i'm quite sure Disney has more than enough resources to "fix" that.

They do not oun the full rights of Episode IV from what i understand, but they oun all of the Prequels, considering we'll most likely see spin-offs in this time period too, i think Disney should try remastering these films. They're still part of the saga Episode VII is continuing after all, so it's in everyone's best interest to make the look of the movies be more cohesive.

I'm not sure Episode III necessarily needs this, maybe a few tweaks here and there, but II is the one that needs the most retouches due to its overreliance on CGI, while Episode I had effects that worked most of the time with the exception of the Gugans, with how much effects have improved, i think their look needs to be finished.

Agree? Disagree? Is it more trouble than it's worth? I vote for specialized editions supervised by the Sequel Trilogy team for Episodes I and II.

In all honesty, i dont really care. If they want to invest their time and money in something like this, i guess it's fine. If they dont, it's fine too, i wont lose sleep over it. I'll still enjoy these films regardless You should have put that third option in the poll

I think that out of the three prequels, only Attack of the Clones had some truly horrendous CGI, and that's mainly the clones themselves.

For me the worse CGI in AOTC is Obi-Wan's beard lol. I can tell which scenes were reshoots because of it

Not only the cgi but I wish they could remove the artificial softening they slapped on AOTC. Lucas thought the crisp digital look would be weird visually since people were used to 35mm film so he had ILM soften the picture in post-production. With ROTS he left the picture alone which is why its pristine on blu-ray. I wish they could go back and do a new transfer of AOTC without that softening and release that on blu-ray.

I actually didnt know that, or i'm getting old and it just slipped my mind lol. Now you left me wondering what AOTC would look like without the softening, cause ROTS looks amazing on blu-ray...

No episode 1 and 2 where terable and it wasn't just because of the CGI that they where so bad so who cares they had much bigger problems then CGI. Episode 3 was good but the CGI is just fine in that movie.

We all know that, but those films still belong to the Director, and the best way to improve them without completely changing what they are is to improve upon the CGI.
