PT Were all the prequel films produced independently?

    I know that, after making a fortune from the merchandising rights on Star Wars, George Lucas produced both Empire and Jedi independently, with Fox only distributing the films.

    I seem to remember hearing that Lucas had made at least Episode I independently, but then allowed Fox to invest in Episode II and/or III.

    I was wondering if anyone could shed any light on this, as it's a topic that interests me.

    Everything after the original Star Wars 1977 was produced independently. Lucas abhorred the studio interference.
