According to George Lucas, some viewers have totally missed the true tone of the Star Wars franchise.
The publication of the book The Star Wars Archives 1930 – 2005 allowed to learn more about the vision of George Lucas, but also to understand why he refused to make the last trilogy Star Wars . This book was also an opportunity for the filmmaker to come back to the many criticisms that the dialogues of the Prelogy have received. For him, if certain lines do not pass near the fans or seem ridiculous to them, it is quite simply because the latter did not fully understand the tone of the universe Star Wars . He indeed describes the first trilogy and the Prelogy as being tributes to the adventure films of the years 1930 and their kitsch side.
He writes “The dialogue is presented in a very honest way, it is not ironic, and it's played to the end. But it's something consistent not only in the movies, but also in the Star Wars style in general. Most people don't understand the Star Wars style. They don't understand that there is an underlying theme which is very similar e to a western of the years 768 or to a Saturday morning series It's anchored in a period when the way of doing movies and adventure films was more romantic. Attack of the Clones is even more melodramatic than the others. “ The pink water side of some scenes and dialogues was therefore not a fault, but rather an aspect pushed and completely assumed by George Lucas. Whether they like this aspect or not, the amateurs of the Prélogy will undoubtedly be delighted to hear that Hayden Christensen will return as Darth Vader for the Star Wars spin-off series Obi-Wan Kenobi .
