“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson over the weekend revealed what made the prequel trilogy so good.

What’s going on:

  • Social media engaged in discussion over the “Star Wars” prequel trilogy after Scott Malthouse asked Twitter to “Say a genuinely nice thing about the Star Wars prequels.”
  • Johnson responded: “Lucas made a gorgeous 7 hour long movie for children about how entitlement and fear of loss turns good people into fascists, and did it while spearheading nearly every technical sea change in modern filmmaking of the past 30 years.”
