May the Fourth: Reimagining the Prequels

It’s hard to argue that the Prequels have left the most positive of indelible memories upon the franchise. What with the midichlorians, irritating sand, and…Binks.

But hey, it is officially Star Wars Day, so let’s have a little fun with that. Say, by the grace of Disney and Lucas, you were given the reins (and an obscene amount of cash) to remake the prequels as you saw fit. How much would you change, or even remove? Who would you recast? Would you let stay Jango Fett but no skinless C-3PO? Or conversely would keep every element of prequels, midichlorians and all? Or perhaps you’d do away with any notion of the prequels and create a new trilogy instead?
