Q: Why haven't we seen the stars stretch into lines when a ship jumps to hyperspace in the prequel trilogy? A: For the definitive answer, we turn to none other than George Lucas himself. Here's what he had to say: "I think of the series as one movie. In order to keep the impact of the hyperspace jump in Episode IV, I have decided not to use it in the first three films. If you're watching them from one to six, you'll get the same thrill." link here. Do you agree with this? I sure don't understand GL's answer. I would love to have seen the starlines in the PT. Thoughts anyone?
