Key Points

The critically-panned prequel trilogy of Star Wars saw its talented cast tragically overshadowed by its subpar scripts.

Despite objections from the Jedi Council, Anakin Skywalker was chosen as the prophesied “Chosen One” and was trained by QuiGon to fulfill his destiny.

Jar Jar Binks’ overwhelmingly negative reception sparked an unprecedented reduction of his role in the Star Wars franchise.

The Galactic Republic is on the brink of a catastrophic civil war as Count Dooku leads a powerful Separatist force in a relentless attempt to tear the Republic apart.

With alarming speed, Obiwan uncovered the shocking truth that the Separatists were constructing a menacing droid army in collusion with the Trade Federation, while Palpatine stealthily acquired unprecedented authority to mobilize a clone army.

The Star Wars saga has seen George Lucas take a more hands-on approach. The prequel trilogy was almost entirely written and directed by him alone. The original trilogy was co-written with collaborators.

Despite their entertaining nature, the Star Wars movies are notoriously marred by their haphazardly-crafted plots, incoherent storylines and glaring inconsistencies.

The prequel trilogy uncovers how the galaxy’s fate was tragically sealed. This lead to the iconic original trilogy.


“When you become a Jedi, you basically have to learn how to not live with emotion, because emotion is the pathway to the dark side.” – Sam

“He was there, but very seldomly, and he didn’t speak really. They just completely cut his character because so many people disliked him.” – Sam

“They just figure that she’s dead. So Anakin decides to go out and find her and does. Finds the camp, finds his mom barely alive, but unfortunately, she dies in his arms.”

“And maybe that’s why it was so bad, though. It’s the lack of chemistry, I think so that just made it even more icky.” – Sam

“He needs the co writers. He really does. But unfortunately, the co writers didn’t work out well either.” – Mary

“As you guys can tell, we really don’t have that much to say because we just really didn’t enjoy this trilogy.”
