Everyone for the most part don't like the prequels, expect for some kids usually 9 and under. The people who grew up with the original trilogy or just have the IQ level to know, know they are not good! I grew up with the prequels, and when I was about 10 I started to see why people didn't like them.
If you don't know why they are bad, watch MR. PLINKETT'S reviews on all 3 movies. But if you want it summarized, (They lack emotion, there characters are boring, the acting is boring, there is no main character, to much lightsaber, not enough force, MEDICHLORIANS!) I mean the list goes on and on from there.
Now, let's get to the remake side of the article. Hollywood has been on a streak of rebooting old movies, and that's why I don't see why they don't do it for a series that needs it! Now, I'm only talking about 1, 2 and 3. The original trilogy has been screwed up enough with the special editions.
But, the only thing stopping this from happening is the fact that, George Lucas. George has a giant ego and he wouldn't allow his "works on art" to be remade. But, a flip side to that is that he has given Disney the rights to Star Wars, so he also might have thought that, "Someday they might reboot my pile of shit prequels."
And if he didn't and he gets mad and throws a fit about it if they do reboot it, then its his fault.
If they did remake the prequels, I'd like JJ Abrams to be involved in the writing and producing (or directing if needed) and the writer of Episode V and now Episode VII to return and help out JJ.
Actors wise, recast everyone but Padme Amidala and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Ewan McGregor is a great actor, he just wasnt given enough to work with. And same with Natalie Portman, she's a amazing actress but she had horrible lines to give.
Story wise, make episode I still have them find Anikan, but make him 17-19 years old. But, have the Clone Wars happening from the beggining. Also, keep Darth Maul through the entire series, also keep Qui-Gon Jinn and make him Kenobi's friend in Episode I and have Maul kill him. So then Obi-Wab has something to do in the next two episodes until Anikan's transformation.
