Aye, and since Gandofini's boy is a bit on the doughy side, the similarity with AJ is gonna be very vivid. You're right, the Moltisanti story was definitely written to be revisited - I wonder how long Chase has been nursing the idea of a prequel. He has certainly always been adamantly against a sequel, which I'm glad about. I may have mixed feelings on the finale, but to mess with it now would be a mistake. I do wonder if Chase might include some nod to it somewhere though.I'm hoping they'll look at the Dickie Moltisanti story. There's a few lines in The Sopranos which indicate his death wasn't just as straightforward as Chrissie was told, so hopefully that's something which comes up.
Even if it's primarily about Tony, that's still an interesting story because of the contrast between young Tony and AJ, which is obviously a focal point of the series. How was Tony's dad different and what did he do to try and keep his son out of the life? It'll be interesting to see what direction the film goes with.
