Top Ten Things the Star Wars Prequels Did Right

The prequels are not that good but they still had some Good aspects so I had to make a list

The Top Ten

1 Anakin Vs Obi Van scene

The lightsaber fights were fantastic in the prequels. - Jackamalio

Amazing battle - PeeledBanana

Some people consider the 3rd episode the best movie because Anakin Becomes darth vader in in the 3rd movie - Aguythatpeopleignores

2 Darth Maul Darth Maul Darth Maul is a fictional character in the science fiction franchise Star Wars. Trained as Darth Sidious's first apprentice, he serves as a Sith Lord and a master of wielding a double-bladed lightsaber. Darth Maul first appeared in Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace, and has also appeared in The more.

I thought maul was wasted in episode 1. Sure he looks cool, but like boba fett, he doesn't really say or do anything that important (hell I don't think he has any lines period) to the story. It could have been a lot better if they'd replaced Dooku with Maul and made him a recurring bad guy for Obi-wan and anakin to have a vengeance for. - Jackamalio

Darth Maul was so good he reappeared on Clone Wars - Aguythatpeopleignores

3 The CGI Effects


4 The Action Scenes

The action scenes makes the prequels worth visiting. - Aguythatpeopleignores

5 Liam Neeson as Qui Gon Jinn

Qui Gon Jinn was awesome and he had a better performance compared to other prequel Actors - Aguythatpeopleignores

6 The pod race scene

This was only praised because the rest of the scenes were so awful. What about Dinner of Vader? - iliekpiez

The Phantom Menace is the worst star wars movie but the Pod race is the best scene in the franchise - Aguythatpeopleignores

7 Darth Sidious as a chancellor of the republic

Best thing about the prequels. - iliekpiez

He is playing both sides and I thought that was a decent plot twist. - Aguythatpeopleignores

8 Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi

Awful actor, and disappointing character - iliekpiez

Easily the best character in the prequel trilogy was acted to perfection and was the one consistently good thing in all three movies. - Verderame

9 C-3PO and R2 D2's Return

No, in AOTC it was so bad - iliekpiez

I always liked C-3PO and R2 They sometimes do stupid stuff that's actually amusing to watch - Aguythatpeopleignores

10 The Atmosphere

Because of no science existing - iliekpiez

The movie has that Star Wars Athmosphere I gotta give them that. - Aguythatpeopleignores

The Contenders

11 The Clone wars

Remember the Cartoon that was aired on Cartoon Network? That Cartoon was awesome! - Aguythatpeopleignores

12 Jar Jar Binks Jar Jar Binks Jar Jar Binks is a fictional character from the Star Wars saga created by George Lucas. A major character in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, he also has a smaller role in Episode II: Attack of the Clones, and a one-line cameo in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and the television series more.

Kids would laugh at him, but he might annoy you when you grow up. Anyway didn't the originals have annoying characters?

Jar Jar is awesomne! He's a key! - darthvadern

God. Some people actually think Jar Jar wasn't a tragic mistake!? Mind blown! - LordDovahkiin

13 Yoda Vs Chancellor Palpatine

That scene was amazing! - Aguythatpeopleignores

14 The Villains
15 The Different Worlds
16 General Grievous General Grievous General Grievous is a fictional character and antagonist in the Star Wars franchise. He served as the Supreme Commander of the Confederacy of Independent Systems' Droid Armies during the Clone Wars.

No, he was not good in the prequels, such a one sided fight which was unrealistic considering what he did before. - iliekpiez

Although We only saw him in Clone Wars and Revenge of the Sith I believe (I don't remember) He was a badass. - Aguythatpeopleignores

17 It showed how Anakin Skywalker became Darth Vader
18 Less Jar Jar as the Films Went On
19 The Opera House Scene
20 The Music

In Fact the music in the prequals is better than the Orginals because of songs like Duel of the Fates and Battle of Heroes - christangrant

21 Jango Fett Jango Fett Jango Fett is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, created by George Lucas. He made his debut in the 2002 film Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, where he was portrayed by actor Temuera Morrison.
