Lucasfilm Ltd.
Sixteen years passed between the release of “Return of the Jedi” and the release of “Phantom Menace.” I waited in line for both of them. But in between, like many Star Wars fans, I grew up. I started to look at the world through more mature eyes, and my childhood memories became rose-colored and nostalgic. In a way, producing the prequels was a no-win situation for Lucas. It was certainly a no-win situation for anyone expecting the new films to be as good as the originals.

I think that you are off the mark here. While the prequels weren't as good as the original trilogy, they were still good movies.

Jar-Jar Binks & EWOKS, and all the puppet creatures who did not have leading roles!

BTW - Did anyone else take note that in addition to this aqusition of Lucas Arts / Star Wars,
Disney already owns the rights to the Muppets?

This could get bad, seriously bad.
