|Miles Teller IS Anakin Skywalker 2.0!|
So if remakes are all the rage, the logic goes, why not remake the most controversial of films: Star Wars Episodes I-III? At first blush, it makes a certain sort of sense. Actually, wait, no it goddamn doesn't. It makes as much sense as a boycott from the ten people who followed the Star Wars EU being relevant to Episode VII's success. But because I hate myself, I want to quantify the reasons a prequel reboot makes no sense.
Let me say off the bat that I don't want to discuss the quality, or lack thereof, of the prequel trilogy. There were some great things in those films; there were also some awful things. Fans and critics alike should be able to agree on that.
