This wasn't one of George Lucas's most popular films, but i think those people are missing the whole point.
The movie was a spinoff from Star Wars yes, but it was intended for children. No disrespect, I know Star-wars has its "Following". However i think some take it too serious.
It was made for the Star Wars geeks....More so intended for children as i said and should be looked at as nothing less. I wanna state again no disrespect to those fans....I just couldn't think of a better way to word that. lol Again, it is a Star Wars spin-off, but i'd probaly but this in the genre of the classic Jim Henson films.
