The Star Wars prequels are mainly known for how silly they were, and anything beautiful about them has been lost to memory. The prequels lack in quality and coherence, and of course, they are not as good as the original trilogy. And even though Jake Lloyd was not the greatest child actor, and Jar Jar was kinda terrible, these prequels which tell the story of how young Anakin Skywalker became Darth Vader, have given the world numerous funny memes and a few amazing fan edits.
However there is no denying that Star Wars is one of the most popular movie series of all time and Star Wars: The Last Jedi opened in U.S. theaters on December 15, 2017. But if you still haven’t seen it, you must watch the fan-made prequels that are more bearable to watch than the real movies.
Devoted fans have made it their mission to save Star Wars from itself. Take for an example, YouTuber JermeyMWest-Esquire. He created the Anti-Cheese Edit which is a prequel edit that people can actually watch. “The Phantom Menace felt lifeless, confusing, and more than anything it contained a litany of cringe-inducing scenes, acting, dialog, and characters,” he wrote in the introduction of the video.

But what’s even better is if you can watch three movies in just 85 minutes. That’s what the actor Topher Grace from That ’70s Show, a.k.a Eric Foreman has done. The actor showed The Editor Strikes Back only to his industry friends in a private screening in 2012.
This fan-made edits will save you from watching Anakin whine about sand for hours on end.
You will be would be on episode 2 in just 6 minutes and you wouldn’t miss anything.

And even though these edits are genius I actually happen to like the Star Wars prequels. However, sometimes is really difficult to watch cringe-worthy dialogue such as “I’m haunted by the kiss that you should never have given me.”
