    5 stars Nice to have a comic adaptation of the first three films in the Star Wars saga. Very good. Don't know why people don't like Jar Jar Binks very much. Can't wait to read more Star Wars comics!!!!

    Spring 2020 (March Live Read); Let's all be honest up front. There'll be nothing new in here for me, but I'm doing it anyway, both because I'm going to read every single new canon comic out so far, and to see if I need to icon Padmé pieces from this one, too. This art....is not great so far. || Hers is not good, and Anakin's is spectacularly bad. || That was a thing I just did with my life, that was such an example of bad art. || Yes. >_> I still pulled like 25 screenshots off it, too.

    I blame the source material, but this was thoroughly meh...no character development, and it jumped disjointedly from plot point to plot point - basically just illustrating the key scenes from the movies. On the plus side, reading this was still better than watching the prequels...

    Minus the acting the prequels are a decent set of stories. Kind of bummed they kept some of the script though. Your favorite "I hate sand" bit is here, for example. Otherwise decent.

    i love star wars, but this was waaaaaaay too fast paced. 3 movies in 200 pages was a little wild.

    Quick Review. Actual rating: 3.5 / 5. These short adaptations are fun, but often pointless. Seeing a story you've seen over and over, but in a different format. Whilst the art is not my favourite, I feel as though it works here. This has a bright design, brilliant background art, decent character art and a standard panel layout, which all makes for an easily digestible 20 minute read. I really don't know what to say on this story wise, it's exactly the same as the other adaptations where it's the Quick Review. Actual rating: 3.5 / 5.

I really don't know what to say on this story wise, it's exactly the same as the other adaptations where it's the original story, in the form of spark-notes (Or dot point form), but doesn't add anything we haven't seen before, much like the Original Trilogy Graphic Novel (which was okay) or the Thrawn Trilogy Graphic Novel (which wasn't very good) and unlike the Rogue One Comic Adaptation (which adapts parts from the novel not seen in the film). I love the era of the prequels and The Clone Wars, and whilst I may not love The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, I still feel like I'd rather watch the Prequel Trilogy rather than read this short version, because if I want the experience, I want the whole experience. It's fun. It's easy. It's neat. But it's nothing super important.

    Finally finished this. Don't really know why it took me so long. This graphic novel will be useful for refreshing your memories of prequel without having to re-watch them, because this is exactly what happens in movies, short scene after short scene. What bothered me: art style - while background looked great, I didn't like the way some of the characters where drawn; and also, wasn't a big fan of the jumpy way the story was told.

What I liked: the fullness of it, you really just have to read this to refresh your memories of the events happening in prequels. And I needed a little reminder before I continue reading other canon comics. Overall, not bad, but you probably won't find anything new here, if you're a fan.

    3.5 stars I will love Star Wars until the day I die, and I really loved the style of the illustrations, but upon turning the final page I was left with a feeling of wishing there had been...something more. Its a pretty faithful adaptation, overall. Obviously some bits and pieces had to be cut/shortened in the transition from screen to page, but its still sad to see some of my favourite lines missing, or iconic scenes stripped down to a panel or two when others get a full spread (and frankly, they 3.5 stars I will love Star Wars until the day I die, and I really loved the style of the illustrations, but upon turning the final page I was left with a feeling of wishing there had been...something more.

Unfortunately the location jumps that work so cheekily well in the movies just don’t function as smoothly on in this medium. All in all, it’s basically a condensed highlights reel of the prequel trilogy. But that said, I’ll still buy it at some point for my personal library because that’s what I do when I love illustrations (and I really loved the size of the book).

    Being a huge prequels fan, I absolutely loved it. Most of the quotes they use in here are line-for-line from the movies. However, there were definitely parts of this graphic novel that felt rushed, as if one scene just suddenly "jumped" into another one. If you aren't familiar with the movies, it might be a little confusing.

I found myself laughing time and again reading this because of the hilarious artwork. The characters are heavily "cartoonized", so to speak, and I feel like some characters, Obi-Wan, for example, looks little to nothing like his movie counterpart. I feel like a "cast of characters" page should have been included in the back, for the people that perhaps haven't seen the films. Other than that, great book.

    As absolutely beautiful as the art is, this "graphic novel" isn't very novelistic. As a matter of fact, many scenes are chopped-up so horrendously that it might be near impossible to figure-out exactly what's going-on. That's why I'd say this is better as a gift for major fans of the prequel films, and certainly not for a newcomer. But, seriously, the space scenes for Phantom Menace are amazing. I'm also kind of shocked by how the adapters decided to show violence much more directly. People lose As absolutely beautiful as the art is, this "graphic novel" isn't very novelistic.

Most of those interesting choices and executions are killed, though, by how fast everything is. Everything feels too rushed, due to the chops dealt.

    This book was awesome! It retells the entire Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. It misses some important parts, but I guess it's just because that would make the book to long. Even that cannot lower this book's rating! These books are great, but you have to watch the movies first otherwise you'll get confused on whether the movie or the books are the more accurate ones (the books are accurate, they just miss some parts of the movies, and they also shorten battle sequences, such as the Duel on Mustafar).

    Meh. Much like the take on the Original Trilogy, this collection has goofy cartoon artwork that's way too simplistic. The dialogue is exactly from the movies, copy and pasted. The chunks of the story that were skipped left for an even clunkier story. The more exciting aspects such as the light saber duels were reduced to only 2-3 panels that the childish artwork didn't do it any justice. I still think this and the predecessor are best skipped; however this might be a nice way to introduce kids Meh.

    This graphic novel is an adaption of the prequel movies: Episodes I -III. I do not like the art style as it makes the characters look very bizarre. Also, it is abridged and the significant exciting scenes are very abrupt. That being said, it is still a fairly interesting read, especially with the family. It also helps highlight some of the progressions and elements of the story and characters. There were even a few things I noticed that I had forgotten or never even noticed before.

    Many scenes cut, which helps with the (dreadful) pacing of the Prequel movies, but alas, this is a faithful adaptation otherwise, keeping all of the story faults and problems. As with the Original Trilogy adaptation, much of the romantic scenes are cut--which might have been OK with Han & Leia's stories in Ep. 4-6, but a big piece of the story in the prequels is the forbidden romance. So, what was already a bewildering romance in the movies becomes even more unfathomable in this adaptation.

    Seen the movie, read the novel, and listened to the dramatized audio story ... this version adds nothing to the story. Basically, I progressed through the movie scenes in my head as the storyboard moved me along. This is a simple read, and the art is fine, but this is nothing amazing. My already low expectations were exceeded in the negative.

    One volume that covers all three prequel movies in graphic form. The artwork takes a little getting used to as it's very cartoony, but once I did get used to it, I liked it. It's not a 100% adaptation - there are parts edited out - but it's mostly there. I guess I feel the way I felt about the Force Awakens adaptation - not unenjoyable, but it didn't add anything new.

    I noticed this listed as Star Wars canon, so the completionist in me was begging for thoroughness. I enjoyed the artwork and the simplicity in the adaptation. It had a nice flow and was easy to read, which is perfect for kids. This reminded me of the Oz comics that marvel did and some of the Indiana Jones comics that Dark Horse did, geared for kids. I still recommend for anyone.

    3 Stars for the illustrations, 2 stars for all they left out. It IS a juvenile graphic novel, in case you were not sure, and as others have written it needed to be an longer then 208 pages to include the small but important parts they left out. All three of the Prequel movies are here. Read it in 30 mins. Not sorry I read it, but glad I read a library copy.

    Eh it was okay. I feel like they skipped over some important things left out some of the best parts and dialogue. And while fight scenes are a big part of the movies, I felt like there were too many of them depicted in great length, when just a few less frames would have worked fine. I mean, I know it's not gonna be exactly like the movie but still, it could have been better.

    Like watching the prequels....except in book form......I winced at all the parts in this that I do when I watch the movies :D Overall, cute, though I wouldn't say "kid friendly" due to the fact that the part with Anakin and the padawans IS in here (and yet the floating space pear isn't for some reason?????)

    This wasn't too bad of a read. The problem was it followed the quotes from the film to a letter but it skipped over the most important battle and speaking scenes. I don't really understand why they spent time on insignificant scenes but skipped over others. It is an interesting read though; the graphics were very well-drawn, especially the characters.

    A good adaptation of the movies. It makes some of the hard things to swallow in the movies a little easier to take. The art is very reminiscent of the original clone wars series of 3-minutes cartoons.

    Not bad. Similar to the Original Trilogy graphic novel. It doesn't change much from the movies that I noticed, though they do cut out a lot of Jar Jar Binks and the pod racing scene in Episode I. This is good. They don't change Jar Jar or the Gungans' wacky accents, though they don't emphasize a lot of the other controversial accents, either. Again, biggest problem is the pacing. Too many scenes in too little space means they don't have time to breathe and ruminate. But it's still a fun read, and Not bad. Similar to the Original Trilogy graphic novel.

    I am not a huge Star wars fan probably because I never took the time to really understand the background story. This helped me pick up the background while seeing the images to put people and things in context. Well done.

    It's all lifted straight from the movies, dialogue and scenes all the same but a bit abridged. The art is mostly fun, though the style can get a little derpy at times. It's a super quick read, great for kids, but nothing really new or different to interest most older fans.

    Im a huge fan of the art in this graphic novel and its a super fun compilation of all 3 of the prequel movies! I highly recommend this if you love Star Wars and need something different in your reading routine.

    It was great reliving the prequel trilogy in comic form, but it felt rushed. Some scenes were skipped whereas I was hoping for something more than just the prequel story. I was hoping a few extras, like when you buy an anniversary edition of a movie, perhaps.
