The Star Wars Prequel Trilogy is probably one of the most controversial parts of the entire Star Wars universe. Before The Rise of Skywalker, I would have gone so far as to say that it was the most controversial among fans. On the one hand, it shows that a good story can carry a movie even if the acting and production aren’t great.
On the other hand, some of those gaps were enormous. The Prequel Trilogy is a very well-written tragedy (in the Greek sense) about the fall of a hero. The scene in The Revenge of the Sith where Anakin and Padmé look at each other across Coruscant, he from the Jedi Temple he will soon destroy and she from her apartment is hauntingly beautiful.
And yet, Jar Jar Binks’s line “Uh, maxi big da Force” still gives me nightmares. So, yeah, a lot of different things. Even though many people try to forget that there were prequel series, Natalie Portman’s role in Star Wars is considered iconic. Her makeup as Queen Amidala was legendary, and her role as Luke and Leia Skywalker’s mother was important.
