One thing that has sort of bugged me was how the promotion for Episode 1 didn't seem that much at first. After the first trailer, there wasn't much in the way of promotion until just these last couple weeks. I mean I was bit upset at how long it was taking the TV Spots to get into greater circulation (I only seemed to see the Go-Gurt spot every other day and that was it) However, in these last two weeks I have seen youtube videos' views, as well as facebook events' attendances, go up quite a bit more, comments on such things being fairly positive, than I was expecting initially. Until last weekend, it seemed like the premiere was going to be another lonely midnight showing like when I and my small band of friends went to see Clone Wars, but I think the attendance will be rather fair this time around for TPM. So my question is: Do you think Lucasfilm marketed this re-release well? Why or why not? My position is that George and company understood which film they were promoting and were trying to market it according to its popularity and general favoritism. Perhaps the reason I felt the marketing wasn't enough was because my admiration for TPM is more than average, whereas the average I've heard from fans, even OT fans who like it, is that it's the weakest of the Saga in their opinion. So Lucas did not want to put too much into promoting the film that might get the least multiple viewings and, at best, simply a warm reception.
