They have to have seen that the prequel trilogy was a piece of shit, and understood why the original films were so much better. They have to know what is at stake here.

IMO the only decent part of the prequels was Obiwan vs Anakin (especially the dialog exchange after Anakin has his legs cut off). Everything else was pretty painful.
Yeah still not holding up a lot of hope for this one tbh.
And the music should be good with John Williams doing the score. In fact, that will probably be the highlight since old JJ will get too much control of the rest of it.The only good signs so far are the extra 6 months they've pushed back the release, and Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back) replacing Michael Arndt as writer.
C-3PO is the most annoying character in the trilogy.. he is the original trilogies Jar Jar... even more annoying is that you have to put up with BOTH of them in the prequels. Apart from helping communicate with the ewoks does he do anything helpful? And now that we're on the topic of ewoks... fuzzy midget cuddly bears... are they any better than the gungans? The Ep6 Death Star isn't much better than the Ep4 one... except instead of a convenient hole leading to the reactor there's space for big space ships to fly into... and no protection inside.
I'm sure there's a bazillion more things, but for most of us when we watched these movies we were young and didn't care about it all. I find movies 100 times more enjoyable when I don't read up about them online and see all the flaws everyone's pointed out. I honestly hardly noticed the lens flare in the new star trek movie... now if I watched it again it would probably piss me off because I'd know to look for it.
The problem with EP1 was it was probably too childish for the adult star wars fans, and possibly too adult in parts to want to take your kids to see... that and the introduction of a scientific reason for the force.
EP2 was better.. it had its flaws but I found it enjoyable.
EP3 I actually thought was pretty good, and would have no troubles watching again. Obi-Wan vs Aniken... Yoda vs Emperor... Youngling massacre... the Vader transformation was pretty silly, but whatever.
I'll go see the new ones and will hopefully avoid any online discussions about it beforehand so I can just enjoy it for what it is.
