Anyone that thinks that The Force Awakens was a disappointment, clearly wasn't a Star Wars fan in 1999.

You know what, TFA was IMO such shit that episodes one was better. It was barely worth the dollar and change that I spent on redbox for it and that was for the cameos by Harrison ford.

Episode 1 was better? Seriously? When was the last time you watched that and how old were you when it came out?

This review does such a better job than I could ever do in making my point:

All of the criticisms of PM can't be levied at TFA. That said, TFA isn't a perfect film, but as someone that was 19 years old when PM was released, I can tell you that the anticipation for both was equivocal and that TFA was WAY more satisfying and because its a better film. Period.

Yeah. I heard how George Lucas was gonna make a prequel trilogy, but after everyone heard all of his horrible ideas, they decided to nix it for fear of angering fans. Fortunately, some of his ideas did make it into a very well done computer animated series a bit later, known as The Clone Wars. Sadly, it was canceled after Disney bought the rights to Star Wars, but a new series, called Rebels was made by some of the same people. Two fun facts about Rebels are that a lot of the character design is based off of Ralph McQuarrie's concept art and a few of the characters in that series are supposed to show up in the new movie.
