When it comes to the Star Wars prequels, the trilogy gets a bit of a bad rap. After all, The Phantom Menace is the lowest-rated movie in the whole saga despite the fact that it brought in well over a billion at the global box office. The prequels do certainly have some problems, but if you give them another look, you'll probably find that they have plenty going on that can make even the most rabid Star Wars fan happy.
This list highlights some of the best small details of the first three chapters in the Skywalker Saga that prove the movies are better than most fans remember. Give these details another look, and if you find something that makes you consider giving the movies a rewatch, be sure to give it an upvote to see which one rises to the top.
