"In the 2000 film Gladiator, Marcus Aurelius said to General Maximus: "There was once a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile." There was this fragile dream among many us original fans back in the 1980s that could barely be spoken: the prequels of the Star Wars film universe. There was so much excitement in just the promise of seeing the galaxy before the Empire when the Jedi Knight were at their apex in the final days of the old Republic. Then in 1999, that fragile dream was shattered into terrible solid reality with the release of The Phantom Menace. Of course, today Star Wars films have moved on to the sequel trilogy and the stand-alone films that have put some distance between them and the disease that the Prequels were upon the SW universe and the fan community…with various results. A question has burned in my brain since the first time I saw Episode I…was this what Lucas intended all those years ago when he outlined the collective story of Star Wars? What was George Lucas original vision back when he created the Star Wars lore? Would have the Prequels been proper SW films if they had indeed been released in the late 1980s and early 1990s? In this article, FWS will attempt to answer these important questions of the "Lost" Prequels and track down hard facts…."
