This comes from “The People Vs George Lucas” , I really love this quote from Neil Gaiman, he’s defending Lucas over the fan outrage over the prequels and how they were different from the first trilogy. While i’m not the biggest fan of the trilogy actors or the Lucas changes to the originals. Gaiman was right , people were more upset because Lucas did something different than doing what they wanted.
