I'm sure this must have been discussed before, but since I couldn't find any thread on it (maybe my skills with the search engine needs upgrading), I figured I might as well start a thread. If there is already a discussion, please redirect me there. Anyway, I'm curious about how to would re-imagine the prequels? This is a fairly expansive question. It encompasses both large scale storytelling structure: what is required of each episode in terms of events, moods, character developments? But also expectations on single scenes: what is required from a scene in which Anakin turns? Since Star Wars is a rich narrative, there is much material (from both other myths and the GFFA, EU or otherwise) to draw upon, and it might be difficult to strike that careful balance that could satisfy many fans. Now, this is not intended as a sneer towards those who like the existing prequels, but rather as a place for writers to challenge each other and discuss what storytelling properties such a venture would need. I obviously have my own thoughts since I'm in the process of writing my version, but I'm also quite eager to hear what others have in mind, both for my own research, but also just for the plain fun of sharing in this exercise.
