Original “Star Wars” editor Marcia Lucas has a different opinion and cried after “Phantom Menace.”
“I was impressed the prequels had their own identity,” Hamill said. “They were criticized because they were exposition-heavy and more cerebral and probably, like he said back in 1976, they weren’t as commercial. It’s a darker story. But in the age of social media, people’s voices are amplified, and I’m shocked at how brutal they can be, not just in the case of ‘Star Wars’ films, but across the board.”
Revenge of the Sith remains one of the best Star Wars movies. Period.
