In The Mailbag: Phil in LA asks “My ultimate hope is that somewhere down the line, Lucasfilm reboots the prequels and tells a story about the fall of Anakin Skywalker with stakes, and characters that we can root for and care about.  Do you think a prequel reboot is possible some time down the line. Cheers!”
