Prequel Trilogy

Spider-Man’s Tom Holland: “I loved the Star Wars Prequels when I was a kid”


“[…] The charming actor, who in July headlines the wall-crawler reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming, explained that he’s generally not a huge Star Wars fan, though he has enjoyed the most recent entries, Rogue One and The Force Awakens. “I thought that was dope,” he said of 2015’s Episode VII. “I really am a fan of those, I thought they were great fun.”

Exemplifying the generation gap between Stars Wars fans young and old, Holland also admitted he has not yet watched any of George Lucas’s original trilogy — 1977’s A New Hope, 1981’s Empire, 1983’s Return of the Jedi (“For some reason I skipped the original Star Wars, I don’t know why and I’m very embarrassed”) — but he has seen the prequels.

“And I’m even more embarrassed to say that I love those movies when I was a kid. Everyone’s like, ‘What? You liked those movies?!‘” Holland said of Lucas’s divisive Episodes I-III (The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith) released between 1999 and 2005. “But I thought they were great.”

Told this is why old folks like us don’t trust millennials raised on Lucas’s inferior Star Wars films, Holland conceded: “You know, we’re a terrible generation.””
