    JJ Abrams said it at Comic Con, surrounded by the original cast, so it has to be true. George Lucas sold Star Wars for billions, so his opinion no longer counts. Those prequels were disappointing, and it destroyed the careers of the two actors who played Darth Vader. Really, I hope Lucas has reached out to those two men and offered them financial assistance.

    He didn't, he said for him, Episodes IV-VI were what was important, expecialy to the story he was telling. He has been very careful not to bash the Prequels directly.

    He never said that. All he said is that he is focusing more on the OT when it comes to TFA. I'm not sure what point you're trying to make with Star Wars "destroying careers". I remember people saying the same thing about Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. I don't know, maybe some of these well loved actors just aren't as good as fans believe they are? Or maybe there's always been a stigma against those who appears in a Star Wars movie?

    Just found this out, thought it would be interesting to see what Abrams had to say about the Prequels before he got the job for Episode VII...and he doesn't seem to say anything negative:

    He seems to imply CGI was a great thing for the Prequels, i would actualy like to see what more he has to say regarding the films.
