I want to say I was 10 years old when I saw EP1, and it is what got me into Star Wars. I can say it is still my favorite Star Wars movie. (I know, I'm in the minority on this one.)
I don't think we've seen the end of the Star Wars franchise. With the TV series in production, the 3D re-release starting with my favorite one, and future video games, I don't see it disappearing any time soon.
The films themselves could be considered classics. Future generations will see them.
