The Star Wars Prequels Can Be Fun!

YouTuber Imperator Cuts has worked his magic again on the Star Wars Prequels, editing The Phantom Menace into a Guardians of the Galaxy-style super fun trailer!

That was a hoot and a half! He did the same thing with The Clone Wars a couple weeks…months?…ago, and it’s also fun to watch. Seriously, this is the best stuff to lighten up your probably horrible Tuesday!

What If the Star Wars Prequels Were Good?

Some of you have probably seen these videos before, but I’ve been wanting to share them, because they’re a lot of fun. Basically, a rather creative chap named Michael at Belated Media has re-imagined the Star Wars prequels into a better, more entertaining movie trilogy. He keeps the same characters, general plot and themes, but does a much better job with the storytelling. He’s backed up by some great artwork by Jackie Whisler.

These are just one guy’s ideas, but creativity respects creativity.

I especially like what he has planned for Uncle Owen and Darth Maul. That’s some good thinking right there.

I also┬ádon’t have any problem with Jar Jar Binks.

This guy, right here!

Everybody hates Jar Jar Binks. It’s fashionable to hate Jar Jar Binks. But you know what, I never have. I didn’t mind him in The Phantom Menace, and I don’t mind him now. Granted, I totally understand what people don’t like about him and the prequels. I get it, I really do. But me, personally? I don’t mind Jar Jar at all.

In fact, there are at least six occasions in the official Star Wars cannon where Jar Jar Binks is totally awesome! Don’t believe me? Join me after the jump!
