The London Comic-Con took place last weekend, and there was attendance from Star Wars prequel trilogy star Hayden Christensen. What's fun is, the con also featured Ross Beadman, the actor who played the Jedi Youngling that Anakin kills in Revenge of the Sith, and the two ended up taking a picture together.

At London Film Comic Con, Hayden Christensen was re-united with Ross Beadman, the actor that played the Jedi youngling in the Council Chamber.
Just in case you need a refresher, here's the scene where Anakin takes over the Jedi Temple:
Though the prequels were initially hated by the main Star Wars fandom when they came out, the real fans of the films—i.e., the kids from early 2000s— are just now getting their voice. A newfound love has come out for the prequel films, and almost every line from the movies are being turned into internet memes.
I guess you can add an extra level of irony that it's the prequel fans that are also showing the same apprehension toward the Disney sequel trilogy. You have several talks online about people saying that Disney ruined Star Wars, but what really matters is that the kids love the films—just like what happened with the prequels.
For now, Star Wars is alive and well, but the main trilogy is set to end this coming December. Hopefully, the material they release on Disney+ will keep the fandom pleased until the next big movie comes out.
