Ok let's have a real discussion, a discussion that spands the entire realm of Fanasty movies. Most everyone by now who has any salt in them at all knows that the prequels were a dismal failure. A failure on many levels and they came at a time when Peter Jacksons Lord of Rings Trilogy so fully dominated with classic coolinest & Awsomeness that most fans have attempted to forget the prequels altogether, while the Peter Jackson just released his latest masterpiece the Hobbitt, a Prequel of his own & one that surely defined the way a prequel should and can be made. In fact when one studies this subject you find that LOTRs has indeed surpassed Star Wars as the top Franchaise, and it even appeared as if the war was over until the ST was announced & George Lucas turned SW over to more talented and creative people with disney as the new Emperor. We will have 2 LOTR Hobbit sequels one in 2014 and one in 2015 and I'm sure LOTR will continue with Spinoffs much like Star Wars will do as well and then the ST will begin to arrive in 2015 and attempt to restore order to the Galaxy, wipe away the memory of the horrible SW Prequels and once again put the greatest Space opera of all time back on top. But let me be clear, Every single LOTR film to this point has been great, and each oone has added more to the universe & story while. Star Wars stands on only 2 films that can be said to be great ANH and the Empire Strikes Back.so Star wars must get Episode 7 right or the contest may indeed be lost forver..
