The OT had been refered to as "The Star Wars Saga" before, but that's not what I'm talking about here. The six films are now being refered to as six parts of one story. But, what I'm seeing is that people are saying the "six separate parts" deal automatically means that each movie shouldn't be expected to stand on their own as films with their own sets of story arcs and own raison d'Ãªtre. So far, the PT is following this track, IMO. I'm being rushed through, given just enough info so as not to disorient me, and then pushed on to the next thing. I hate to use a sports reference here, but it's like looking past your current opponent toward the next game against a nationally ranked power. You just want to get it over with and on to the important stuff. Each movie is supposed to continue a forward motion to the next, but that not the only job it has. To me, the whole saga is cemented together even more when each movie has something to say on its own. When I'm watching one movie, I want to be anchored to that period in time. I want to know why it's so important that I know what happened here. I want to think about what happens next after I leave the theater or turn off the DVD player.
