If you had the chance to improve the Star Wars prequel trilogy, what would you do?
4th August 2006
-Make Anakin older in the first prequel.
-Take out Qui-Gon. Wasted character.
-Have Obi-Wan already a Jedi Knight in the first prequel.
-Not make Yoda's speech even worse than when he'd spent a couple of decades in isolation.
-Get rid of the Gungans, especially Jar-Jar.
-Make Anakin actually appear to be a skilled fighter pilot, and not some accident prone twit.
-Not use such a silly concept as "Chosen One" or midichlorians. We know Anakin wasn't "Average Jedi", because Obi-Wan had told us so already!
-Either have Dooku in from the beginning, or not have Darth Maul die in the first prequel.
-Show Anakin's fall over two of the three films.
-Find someone who can actually write a love story.
-Not have battle droids be idiotic Disney henchmen.
-Not have a single clone template, but several different ones other than just Jango.
-Not have each and every clone have the exact same accent as the original.
-Have the Grand Army being in the prequels from the first film, with clones being the later additions because they were needed.
-Centred the prequels around the Clone Wars from the beginning.
I've got lots more of changes I'd make, but it would be far, far too long a list.

I'd thin out the number of Jedi, for starters.
It has been some time.

Just completely scrap epsiode one and start from scratch Make anakin sixteen at least, and change him to a GOOD actor like Nick Stahl or something.
Play up Grievous A LOT more, not some whiny coughing cyborg.
an evil guys subplot spanning the three films about a competition between Maul, Grievous, and Dooku, to see who is the strongest.
ELIMINATE CHILD FRIENDLINESS AND POINTLESS POLITICS.
bring back Irvin Kirshner, as he actually knows how to write romance scenes.
change Natalie Portman to Keira Knightley, it could've gone either way in Lucas's episode one, but I think that Knightley could pull off a more believable character, who dies when Leia was very young, instead of Lucas's continuity plothole he mindlessly created.
