An In Depth Look At The Thought Process Behind The Prequels
15 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

This documentary is very well made and provides an analysis of what went into the making of the trilogy that concluded in 2005. It goes over the purpose behind certain scenes/characters, and musical notes to name a few. You will find yourself thrust back to when they were coming out and everything that has surrounded them ever since. Regardless of your opinion on the Prequels it is well worth a watch, it will cause you to have deep thought on them as well as what to make of creator/director George Lucas. It might not make you love them if you hate them, but it just may make you appreciate them. As the film states "You Must Unlearn What You Have Learned".

Major kudos to the creative team behind this.
