Have you ever heard the tragedy of george lucas the wise?
I thought not. It's not a story r/sequelmemes would tell you. it's a r/prequelmemes legend.
George lucas was a film producer of lucasfilms. He was so powerful and so wise he could simulate the prequels to create memes. He had such a knowledge of filmaking he could even keep the memes he wanted from exhausting their pontetial.
