^Darths & Droids made Naboo, Mustafar, and Alderaan all the same planet.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Indifference.

Then, I started to hate the Star Wars fandom due to all the vandalism they caused around the town.... (protip: If you're going to send hatemail to Jake Lloyd or TP his house, make sure that's actually his house you're sending that to, first.)

I think one of the prequels biggest mistakes was not taking place in Alderaan. Instead of Naboo, it should have been Alderaan. That way we build more emotion to a planet that we know is going to be blown to space dust. In fact, sometimes in my head I just replace the word "Naboo" with "Alderaan" whenever I watch the prequels and I'm good to go.
...that's a really good idea. It'd have been so easy. It fixes some things. Also all the Gungans get blown up. Net gain for the galaxy.

Jake Lloyd is full blown institutionalized now. Pretty sad to hear. These child actors have it rough sometimes. Schizophrenia is not an easy thing to live with.

People have done the same thing to the Rose Tico actress in Last Jedi, to the point where she deleted her instagram, I think.

I was into Star Wars before it was announced. I'd go through phases where I would watch the movies and play Shadow of the Empire a lot. That said, I was young enough that when I heard new stuff was coming out, I didn't feel like I'd been waiting on it for a long time.

Mostly I thought Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon were cool. Duel of the Fates and all. I was into seeing Jedi at their full potential. Didn't get why people hated Jar Jar so much. Frankly, I still find him way less regrettable than not having cast a better Anakin.
