        The misconception Lucas was talking about was that Yoda was a Jedi himself who fought people. I guess he changed his mind.

    this gives the movie a "noble blood" aspect which I think holds better with the mythical fantasy aspect of the series. I think they didnt like it because it takes away the "we are all jedi!" thing which is pretty gay and makes the jedi less cool

    The Jedi felt like wandering warrior monks with influence from Knights but also Japanese traditions. The Phantom Menace kind of destroyed a lot of their mystique:
    >They are lapdogs of the Republic.
    >They have their main temple on Coruscant.
    >Their powers can even be measured by a blood test.
    It felt like a demystification that made them feel less special.

            Wandering warrior monks helping people in the Republic who get drawn into the war by Palpatine's machinations. Instead in the prequels they are literally just civil servant types ordered about by politicians or the Chancellor who have their main headquarters on the main planet and not some mystical place somewhere else. It feels like the Jedi are too contradictory concepts sometimes.

                An assumption based on the themes and ideas of the OT. Changed as more stuff was made. And people are allowed to criticise those changes.
                >Getting mad at him for it is ridiculous and childish.
                I never said I was mad at him, that is your projection. I simply feel that Lucas often confused things as time went on. I don't hate him for that, he is only human. But Lucas often made mistakes and I feel that people who idolise him are as stupid as those that hate him. Take Boba Fett. Boba Fett was a really popular character. Lucas didn't understand that popularity and literally said "toss him in the pit" and unceremoniously killed him off in RotJ. After Phantom Menace received criticism all of a sudden we end up with Jango Fett, almost like Lucas in a way trying to win back part of the audience. Just because you create something doesn't mean you naturally set things out in the world you created. Some of the prequel stuff and call backs are bad. People will attack the Disney ST because of nostalgia and yet the Prequels often banked on that too. Some of the concepts aren't taken to good places. SW was partly inspired by Kurosawa movies and the Jedi feel like like a character from one of those films and not necessarily what we ended up with. Time goes on a influences change and it feels like the concepts didn't get better over time. Making the Jedi walking bureaucrats who are ineffectual pretty much makes them boring.

      How do you fricking miss the point this badly?
      Being lapdogs of the republic led to their downfall.
      The whole point of Qui-Gon's character is that he's the last true mystic who could have saved this, but instead he dies and everyone else is too stiff and regulated to prevent the tragedy.

        The problem with prequel fans is you accuse everyone of criticising them as not understanding them when the issue is that the prequels are really bad sometimes at presenting things. (The romance between Padme and Anakin is one of them.) People understand all the ideas on display in the prequels but how they were laid out were pretty fricking bad. Jedi's power diminishing as Palpatines machinations and the Republic falls is all interesting stuff. How it was presented was boring. Making them literal walking boring bureaucrats who present exposition in AotC about how bad things are rather than showing it is part of the issue here.

The only microscopic entities that can go into the human cells are the Midi-chlorians. They are born in the cells. The Midi-chlorians provide the energy for human cells to split and create life. The Whills are single-celled animals that feed on the Force. The more of the Force there is, the better off they are. So they have a very intense symbiotic relationship with the Midichlorians and the Midi-chlorians effectively work for the Whills. It is estimated that we have 100 trillion microbes in our body and we are made up of about 90% bacteria and 10% human cells. So who is in service to whom?

          It was a kill two birds with one stone situation. More movies were to be made after RotJ, but Lucas decided he didn't want to do anymore and made RotJ the last one. The original plans had Luke's sister be on the other side of the galaxy and the Emperor was to be defeated AFTER RotJ. So he made Leia into Luke's sister to close off both plotlines.

          he made like and leia siblings because he couldn't be bothered to make the 9+ film saga that was originally planned once anh made gangbusters because the production of esb burnt him out
          that's why so many loose ends are abruptly tied up in rotj, they weren't supposed to be like that but since it was now the last film they had to be resolved
          is that poor writing? to a point, but at least they have a somewhat decent answer, although luke and leia being siblings is definitely the worst one

        That is not a defence dude. You're just saying "he made it like this". So what? People aren't obligated to like it.

    The prequel trilogy would be vastly improved if the reason for Anakin's downfall was not emo autism but rather after spending the entirety of the Clone Wars as a dedicated soldier to the Republic's cause, he found out it was all one grand lie. The Confederacy were, in fact, rightfully defecting from a corrupt senate who were mistreating certain populations and it was covered up by certain members of the Jedi Council in order to keep "peace" and "tranquility" in the republic. Anakin is left broken by the lives he's killed and the ideals he stood for all turned out to be for nothing. This is when Palpatine would come in. Palpatine, who had been playing both sides for his own gain (just like how it is in the released prequel trilogy), would convince Anakin that the Republic was a lost cause and that an Empire would get rid of the corrupt bureaucracy while giving true freedom to the people. Hence, Anakin's downfall is even more tragic because it comes not from selfishness, but misplaced selflessness. Of course by the end, Anakin doesn't realize he's been duped until it's too late and he becomes the ruthless husk seen at the beginning of the Original Trilogy. Count Dooku and General Grevious, in my version, would have actually been heroic figures emblematic of how the Republic mistreated both its peace force and its frowned upon populations respectively (yet for the first two movies it would seem as though they were bad until the aforementioned twist happened in the third film). Since the Jedi would be less like monks and more like the intergalactic equivalent of a UN Task Force, the need for romantic drama wouldn't be as prominent as Anakin could be seen as happily married until events have him believe she died in a Republican attack (not knowing she was dying in childbirth instead, a fact purposefully obscured by Palpatine). Obi-Wan and Yoda could be well-meaning but ultimately blind to the faults of the Republic and fall out with Anakin on ideological grounds.

      That reads too close to what happened to Revan. It makes more sense, true, but all the KOTORgays would accuse Lucas of stealing Revan's story for Anakin if that had been his motive.

        Revan wasn't a thing when Lucas first started developing the prequels though. I would completely skip Anakin as a pre-teen (so Episode 1 would start right at the start of the Clone Wars) and have his childhood talked in bits and pieces throughout the trilogy in dialogue instead

          The point of Kid Anakin is to see him at his most pure and innocent as a contrast to what he eventually becomes. The movies are about him. The prequels are Darth Vader's origin story.

            You lose nothing by having Anakin older, 18/19 or something.

              So you just want a rehash of the OT?

                Having an older actor doesn't in any way shape or form make it a rehash. Avoiding awkward kids is fine. You can still have an innocent yet adventerous person in their late teens. Also it can parallel Luke a bit.

                I seem weird you call it a rehash when the prequels also rehash a bunch of OT shit anyway.

                You're asking for a rehash of ANH's story. The OT parallels in the prequels are in the imagery, not the story.

              if anakin was a broody edgelord when the jedi first meet him it turns the jedi from being arrogant and stuck in their ways to idiotic and naive
              the number 1 reason anakin turns to the dark side was because the only proper father figure he had was palpatine, he tried with obi wan but obi wan saw him more as a brother, which isn't what anakin needed
              qui gon's death was a pivotal moment for anakin, it pushed him right into sheev's hands
              if anakin had been older then it wouldn't make sense for him to be so trusting of palpatine

                Are you moronic? I never said Anakin should be an edge lord when they first meet him... You're just weirdly strawmanning.
                >anakin had been older then it wouldn't make sense for him to be so trusting of palpatine
                90% of palpatines manipulations end up having in rots when Anakin is a grown adult.

    It ruins the mysticism of the force.

    Previously it was an abstraction of karmic balance.
    Now it's a weird inheritable genetic disease.

    Also gives Jedi DBZ-esque powerlevels.
    A jedi's power is no longer some manifestation of will or karmic alignment, but a measure of their sperm count which isn't really trainable or studyable.

    What the frick is the force supposed to be if not some spiritual manifestation?
    How are they supposed represent some order of wisdom or good or light if their power is eugenic?

      The midichlorians only SPEAK to the Force. The Force is still karmic. The little guys just help some humans hear it better.

    They misinterpret the scene. Midichlorians are in life forms and act as a conduit for the force, midichlorians are not the force itself.

      I don't think that was explained in the movie tho. We didn't really know what midichlorians were. Some weird magic of the universe? Small lifeforms? Some chemical compound only found in certan people? They didn't explain shit in the movie. And no, I don't care about successive novelizations or animated shows or whatever. You have to explain it in the movie.

        Yes it is. Qui-Gon literally explains that they are microscopic life forms, symbiotic with their hosts, and that "They continually speak to us, telling us the will of the Force." The midichlorians are not the force.
