    Making constant references to the events in the PT, which, and correct me if I'm wrong, according to the official SW timeline, took place around 60 years before the events we will see in Episode VII, would be like making references to WWII in a movie set in Germany in the 2000's. Just saying…

    Anyway, your guess is as good as mine. Truth is, no one knows what JJ thinks or what he'll do.

    We could all be in for a big surprise…

    If Hitler built an Empire that lasted for 20-30 years it might be still fairly relevant today. Anyway, WWII is referenced in plenty of German films & media today.

    Who cares? I'm not a huge fan of much of the PT, but I'm still excited for the future of Star Wars. That's kinda what the ST will be about, right? It's not like characters will be reminiscing on how great the pod races used to be, or complaining about the unscrupulous Trade Federation.

    J.J.'s opinion of the prequels really has nothing to do with his involvement in the ST.

    This thread really belongs here:

    JJs not gonna say the prequels suck.
    But 99% of the audience has already so he doesnt have to. Why do you need to hear it from JJ himself, OP?

    A) Load of Bollocks.
    B) Threadkiller
    C) Not a good way to endear oneself to a diverse community.

    This was discussed already in the main "JJ Abrams as Director" thread. As it's been discussed there already, and there isn't much left to say in this new thread either (after two pages), we'll lock this up now before it becomes more of another OT vs. PT battle.
