    Was it really necessary for Star Wars to have a prequel trilogy exploring the back story of characters like Darth Vader, Obi-Wan, and more or could this have been done in a different way? What about one spin-off film that simply explores the origin Anakin as Darth Vader. What if a graphic novel or book had done this story instead sometime in the 1980s? Was the story of the origin of the character even worth telling the first place?

    I don't know if "need" is really the right word...

    But I'm glad the journey was undertaken.

    I'd say we needed better writing and acting. We did not need 1,000,000 CGI things cluttering every frame though. [face_whistling]

    We wouldn't be here without the Prequels... obviously they were needed, given the way George planned to tell his nine part story.
