    what.! no man, anyone that is around 20 grew up more on the OT than the prequels. I'd say birthdays in the 90s grew up on prequels.

    Being born in the 80s meant : star wars, gijoes, ninja turtles, masters of the universe, marvel, dc, aliens, etc. etc.

    i think the reason the prequels disappoint me so much is the fact at how much better the OT really is

    I was born in 85, and I also grew up on the OT. I got really big into it though when the OT came out on tape for "the last time." it was also the same year the POTF 2 line came out, and then i got treated to getting the chance to see them in the theaters in 97. been die hard ever since.

    yeah, that definitely was cool too. i hated some stuff about the special editions (jabba in ANH and the sarlacc mouth in ROTJ) (also the cantina alien replacements) but seeing STARWARS in general on a big screen was amazing.
    I wasn't of comprehendable age when ROTJ came out in 1983, it would have been cool to see at least one original release in theatres but ah well.

    the special editions in theatres were great for getting people back into star wars or into

    Saw Episode 4 the day it premiered. I was 5 or 6. It's been a way of life every since. Yeah, feelin old !

    I think that more of the "younger crowd" in general would prefer the OT more than one might think. It is timeless. And story driven, not SPFX driven. And although it's a bit dated in the SPFX respect, I don't think it's something that a "younger" person would look at like "we" (the older crowd) would look at "War of the Worlds" and go ... "yuk, it feels too old". George was waaaaay ahead of his years, and gave the best of both worlds at the time. They have stood the test of time, and probably always will.

    Oh, and "Death" to Jar-Jar !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
