Therefore, it cannot be concluded that the prequels were kiddie films and the originals were not.
I was 7 when the original Episode 4 came out. I was fascinated. There is not a doubt that there was a dual purpose to the films, they appealed to a wide audience, including kids. In fact, I think they were the first film to really capitalize on toys and such. But I don't remember it as "cutsie" as much as it was Bad Ass. When I was young, Empire was my least favorite. It is the darkest part of the story arc. When Jedi came out, even I knew that the Ewoks were really kiddie stuff, but it didn't detract from the story itself. Basically Episodes 4, 5, and 6 were a masterful combination that appealed to a wide audience. When they came back and did 1, 2 and 3, they went CGI and effects crazy and forgot about any kind of smart writing and character development. And they seemed to go way more kid crazy (Anakin, Jar Jar, little kid Padawans, fart jokes, etc).

IMO, the diagnosis of Yoda being specifically a "kiddie" device is incorrect. He was definitely "cute" but not so much for the kids as for the purpose of his character and what he was doing with Luke.

How about the other cute scenes, such as when Chewy growls at the little toaster R/C thing and it squeaks and takes off in the opposite direction (or the previously mentioned Han scene)? All examples of a cuteness directed at children.
The bloody severed alien arm was a hoot. Aimed at children! And the burning corpses of Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru! Sponge Bob should do a bit with that! HAHA kiddies the Empire just burned up your auntie! Now who wants pudding?

How about Anakin being cut in half by Obi Wan? Anakin killing all the kids?

We could do this all day...

Knock yourself out. Again, my problem with the last movies is that they're horrible, not their target demographics.

You may have Clay wound up over this, but I'm just laughing at your typical dongerishness.

Okay, but since you brought up the violence of the originals, I thought I'd bring up the violence of the prequels.

I don' think that GoChiefs is wound up at all.

Frankie told me that Yoda is definitely not a muppet. He was also concerned about the scary prospect of Luke's X-Wing breaking apart in mid air after being stuck in that swamp.

Disney now owns the joint and they said in the press release that Episode 7 is coming out in 2015. **** what George Lucas says from now on. It's Mickey's call.

Just do a web search.

We'll be seeing Star Wars films, TV, animated characters, etc. for the next 100 years.

Episode 7, 8 & 9 are slated for 2015, 2017 and 2019 with tons more to come.

Not sure why anyone sees this as a surprise.....Star Wars has been tied to Disney's hip for some time now.

Henley said the Eagles would get back together when hell freezes over.

Clinton said he did not have sexual relations with that woman.

Herm said you play to win the game.

People lie all the time, dude.

Is Garcia Bronco a mouth-breather? Does he not understand how the sale of intellectual property works? When Lucas sold Lucasfilm, he sold the Star-Wars franchise along with it. Disney is free to do with it whatever they would like...which, as they've ALREADY said, includes more films. The neckbeard has no say in what happens to the franchise and they've paid him handsomely to .

To put this in terms that you may easier understand...

Let's say you drew a pretty picture of Peyton Manning and everyone loved it. You then decided to start a business drawing Peyton Manning photos. People are buying these things up like hot cakes. But somewhere along the line you lose the drive to draw these things, so you go back and touch up the old drawings. Then, when you do new ones...they are completely shitty kid cartoons. Everyone hates you. You then say, out of spite, that there will be no more Peyton Manning drawings. Ever. But then...I come to you and give you 4 billion dollars to buy your Peyton Manning picture business. I am free to do with these drawings whatever I'd like and you can't say shit about it. I would then burn all of your Peyton Manning drawings and mail you the ashes. You get the picture.

Avatar completely blew George away and he began thinking about more Star Wars movies as soon as he saw it. The problem was that he didn't have the energy to do more films. The response to the prequels really hurt him on a personal level.

Once he saw the incredible success of Marvel, he decided to align with Disney. He didn't want his legacy to be a movie from 1977 and with this sale, his I.P. will live forever.

It's all about the ego with these guys.
