    The Hobbit was written first, but then after LotR he went back and rewrote bits of it so it fit better with the LotR storyline.

    Just thought I'd throw that out there for shits and giggles.

    So Star Wars, the Dicked-About-With Edition is a prequel to The Empire Strikes Back, original edition?
    No!

    It's an adaptation ;)

    I don't think the book Hobbit is a prequel myself, just saying that there's no real convenient pigeonhole for it.

    Lucas claims the whole 12 episodes of Star Wars were written before the original trilogy came out, so is the "prequel" trilogy not actually prequels?

    TDKR: 4/10
    It was quite shit. And I liked the last one quite a bit.

    Well, that's sort of what I meant. I don't think it's a prequel, but people who think it is aren't really wrong.

    Was the Red Dragon film a prequel?

    (And yes, I know about Manhunter).

    I'm pretty sure Red Dragon's a prequel, but I can't remember what makes me believe that.

    Something in the movie must happen to give that away?

    That's what I can't remember.

    But the book was written before the silence of the lambs, so its not a prequel.

    The fact that it quite explicitly is set before silence of the lambs.

    Slenderman is a prequel to Minecraft.
  • Deleted user 11 December 2012 17:25:59
    A prequel is very specifically something that was written later. The -quel suffix is specifically about the release chronology.

    I'm just seeing pre-school and seagull, to be honest.

    Give me $10 I'm worth it.

  • Deleted user 11 December 2012 17:30:00
    A prequel is essentially a sequel (comes after), that is set before (pre). It's an amalgam word.

    So Star Wars is not a prequel to Empire. It's just the preceding film. Episode 1 is a prequel as it is a sequel that is set before.

    I was being intentionally annoying about Red Dragon. The film was basically positioned as a prequel, although the book was set before so it isn't one. The Hobbit film is kinda the same thing.

    You're an amalgam.
  • Deleted user 11 December 2012 17:34:21
    To be really clear, a prequel is actually a type of sequel. It's a sequel that it set before. But in a narrative sense it presumes knowledge of what comes later.

    So for Episode 1 to work, you actually have to seen Episodes IV, V and VI. You need to know that Anakin becomes Vader and that Senator Palpatine is the Emperor etc etc. If you watch Episode I, II and III before you watch IV, V and VI then the story won't really make sense, and things like you finding out that Vader is Luke's father will have no impact.

    Red Dragon is an adaptation, a prequel and a remake. It's an adapremake.
