New movies will never be good enough

No matter how good the new Star Wars movies are loads of people (probably a majority) will say they are crap and a disgrace to the original trilogy. I have news for all those people, no movie will ever be able the recreate the emotional response you now associate with the episodes 4-6. You were most likely a child when you saw the original movies and it left an emotional imprint that has been fortified by the staying power of the franchise. I have heard from many older people that they feel the same way about episodes 5 and 6 because episode 4 had such an impact on them in 1977.
Personally I am in the middle. I was very young when I first saw the original trilogy and probably watched them more than a dozen times before episode 1 came out. I was still young enough to enjoy Episode 1 which Lucas has adamantly said was made for children. Recently I watched all 6 films in order starting with episode 1 and while I recognize that 1-3 leave a lot to be desired I can remember the emotional response I had as a child and still enjoy it. My wife, who is from Brazil and had never seen any of the movies before, liked all 6 about equally. She had no built in prejudice from her childhood about what Star Wars should be.

Just wait until Disney decide to remake episodes 4, 5 and 6. You know they'll do it, once Lucas pops his clogs.
The fanboy meltdown will likely destroy the internet!

While I personally disagree with them, the order my 4 and 7 seven year old boys would rate them would be episodes 3,2,6,5,4,1.
