Yes it is, but McCallum had less pressure on him; as was mentioned before, he had more to work with. Well, is some respects yes and in some respects, no. McCallum did have a lot more to work with than the OT, but by today's standards, $100 million dollar budgets are more and more commen and "average" for movie productions. We also can't forget that TPM and AOTC were much more massive movie productions, along the lines of something like the Lord of the Rings films. And, unless I'm mistaken, the budget for TPM was $115 million, like AOTC. I'm not sure if I'm 100% accurate though.
