Actually, I think the opposite will be true. People who hated the PT will like the ST simply because it isn't George Lucas. All Ardnt and Abrams have to do is make it more OT in feel than PT and the fanboys will gush all over it. Is the podrace really symbolic of 90s culture? I mean, Lucas has been a racing fan most of his life. Podracing was just the latest iteration of that. The older fans want to see a good film. I know I do. That's what I want from Star Wars too. It's a very simple concept, but one that's very hard to execute.
