Rian Johnson Praises George Lucas’ Work on Star Wars Prequel Trilogy

It seems that director Rian Johnson is one of the biggest fans of the Star Wars prequel trilogy. In a recent back-and-forth on Twitter, Johnson praised George Lucas’ work on the story about Anakin Skywalker’s transformation into Darth Vader. According to Johnson, the prequel trilogy was way ahead of its time, especially as far as the VFX department goes.

“Lucas made a gorgeous 7 hour long movie for children about how entitlement and fear of loss turns good people into fascists, and did it while spearheading nearly every technical sea change in modern filmmaking of the past 30 years,” he wrote.

Johnson had his chance to work with the Star Wars material in 2017’s The Last Jedi. Although Johnson’s movie is the second highest-grossing film in the series, fans’ reactions remain mixed. The same goes for George Lucas’ prequel trilogy, which has as many fans as haters. Many fans didn’t appreciate the prequel trilogy because of the heavy CGI and the rest of the VFX, which didn’t feel the same as the practical models of the originals. Plus, some of the characters introduced in the prequels, like Jar Jar Binks, didn’t quite worm their way into the hearts of fans.

Regardless of your position on it, Johnson’s words perfectly describe Lucas’ intentions with Anakin’s story. What many fans are pointing out is that their main problem is how that story was told.
