I actually watched the prequels again recently and I enjoy them more these days. Maybe TLJ went so low it made the prequels look great in hindsight. Also slowly working through The Clone Wars, on season 3 now.
Clone Wars is an excellent series. Netflix has the "lost/last" season as well. Added a lot to the mythos, for those of us that *gasp* don't read a lot of the extended universe stuff *clutches pearls*. I need to find Rebels.

But I completely understand the "powerful feeling" - I get it with every trailer, regardless if the movie actually lives up to my nostalgia.

It's the damn music, it brings me back to being a child and watching boxed sets on VHS of 4-6. Every damn time that SW music comes on!

First SW trailer release that I didn't give 2 ***** about, didn't even know it was coming.

It was underhyped.

I think they don't want to cut into their Marvel shiz right now.

MCU for summer

SWU for winter
