Phantom Menace "Kids featurette" highlights everything wrong with prequels

Although Star Wars fans have been loathe to admit it, George Lucas has always made it clear that he believes that the movies are intended to be family films and thus have content for all ages.  Recently Lucasfilm released a “kids featurette” trailer that - well, I can’t really describe it.

Presumably this is intended to run during kids’ programming and get the kids to beg Mom and Dad to drop another $15 a person on a movie in the Star Wars franchise.  The rest of us will just cry ourselves to sleep.
