Most people had far too much expectations for SW EPI. Being a Fan Since 10 years old (now 34), It's hard to imagine this as "The First STAR WARS" though it wasn't. Looking Back at the Classic Trilogy, Could you yourself be a Fan Now, if EPISODE I was Actually "The First STAR WARS"? Most would say, "NO." I don't think there would of been other installments of the story, if it was in fact the First. Also, when you look and compare EPI & EPII to the Classic Trilogy (though the same related story), there's quite a difference in the style it was written and portrayed on film. EPI was very Bland and not very exciting. The only scenes that stood out were the Pod Race squence and of course the dual with Darth Maul & Obi-Wan. The Classic SW also had that Magic of, "How did they do that." Now days its common place to have CG pulling the Strings. EPII AOTC appears Very Promising and Doubt it will disappoint, but do we really need EPII Fruit Snacks and Cereal? "What's The Deal?"
