This article will not be for the people who enjoyed the film. If you liked it, then I won’t try to change your mind. No, this article will be SOLELY for the people criticizing the people who hated the film. We have legit reasons to hate it. And I’m going to thoroughly, thoroughly explain why. If you enjoyed The Last Jedi, this article won’t change your mind, but to quote Mr. Plinkett, “You better turn off this review now before I carefully explain how much of a fucking idiot you are.”
This will be partially out of order, since some of the same problems are consistent throughout the entire film.
Gravity In Space
Apparently, Poe Dameron has a plan that involves dropping payloads of bombs onto the First Order capital ships. Or, something. So, can someone explain to me how the bombs would drop in the first place? The fleets were high above Planet Whatever, so gravity either would be so weak it’d be useless for this, or the bombs would drop very slowly at an awkward angle.
This is where the critics-of-the-critics say, “It’s sci-fi! It’s a movie about space wizards! It’s make-believe! Just let it go!” To which I will say, “Do you even know how movies work?”
Whether it’s Lord of the Rings, or Super Mario, all fictional universes have rules. In Lord of the Rings, all creatures age except elves. Or, at the very least, humans age, so if suddenly a human character is revealed to be a thousand years old but he didn’t use any special magic to make that happen, then that would be wrong and deserve criticism. Now, cut back to The Last Jedi.
We’ve seen in Revenge of the Sith, in the beginning space battle, that if your ship blows up in space, you don’t fall straight down. You don’t fall at all. And guess what? During the scene they were showing someone get blown into space, they were having a space battle directly above Coruscant. I am one of the people who gives the prequels shit for being, well, shit, but that one little bit was scientifically accurate. And if it happened in an earlier Star Wars film written/directed by the creator himself (and Revenge of the Sith was deemed canon by Disney), then therefore it is canon that IN SPACE, YOU FLOAT EVEN IF YOU’RE RIGHT ABOVE A PLANET!
So, just keep that in mind, critics-of-the-critics. Even in a franchise with space wizards and giant talking slugs, there are still rules. Have you people ever heard of satellites? Ever seen footage of satellites floating…. directly above Earth…. in space? Every fictional universe needs rules or otherwise literally anything is possible and nothing will make sense. Star Wars is no exception to this fact. There are rules to physics in Star Wars.
Everything About The Main Plot
This movie is a giant chase scene…. Now, of course The Empire Strikes Back was also one large chase scene, but this movie not only executed it poorly, it was written with no care at all. Disney just said, “Oh, Empire was a giant chase scene, so let’s just make this movie a giant chase scene for the sake of it.” Was there any legitimate reason to make this the plot? No. Not even a little.
The First Order somehow has a vast, superior army to the Resistance. That makes no sense whatsoever since the New Republic was 30 years old before Death Star Version 3.0 blew up the capital planet (which was inexplicably not Coruscant, but I won’t get into that), and the New Republic directly backed the Resistance. So, where the hell did the First Order get its fleet, its superior technology, and such a large army of fully-devoted soldiers? (I know they said in the previous movie they kidnap children, but that doesn’t make soldiers fully devoted. That actually makes army command structures fragile.) Okay, even if we ignore the fact that these things make no sense, and we simply accept that the First Order is just better somehow, that still doesn’t begin to explain how the Resistance fleet can travel through space faster.
Did that one First Order General say that Resistance ships are smaller, and that’s the reason they’re faster? What the hell? It’s space! There’s no wind resistance in space. That logic is just stupid. And if the First Order has superior technology in the first place, then by default they should be able to move faster through space anyway. Just everything about this is stupid!
At the end of the day, what did the plot of this movie accomplish? The First Order still exists, the Resistance still exists, all the main characters are still alive….
Nothing happened. This movie went nowhere, even if it wasn’t the mess that it is. One could claim that The Empire Strikes Back didn’t technically get very far, but that would be false. Star Wars was always about the characters. As long as characters are growing, learning who they are, and are getting closer to their goal, then there is progress. In The Last Jedi, all we get a supervillain killed by another supervillain, and we’re left knowing that one day the hero and main villain will fight someday. There’s almost nothing left to even look forward to after this movie. I have no interest in seeing Rey and Kylo Ren fight to the death in the final movie. Big fucking deal if they fight or not. I don’t even care if Kylo becomes good or dies. He’s just some kid who got pissed off that Luke tried to kill him, apparently. I’d be pissed off too. What’s the ultimate point of the trilogy going to be in the end? “Don’t stay angry at people forever, even if they try to kill you”? Yeah, not interested.
Laura Dern’s Character
It was when Laura Dern first came onto the screen that I seriously considered walking out of the movie. Every single time she says a line, or another character is talking to her, she clearly, obviously, for some bizarre reason, has difficulty holding in a smile. Am I the only person who noticed this? She couldn’t keep a straight face. She couldn’t deliver any line with convincing seriousness. It’s almost as if the director pulled in some randy from the film crew and said, “Say these lines.” It’s almost as if the staff was telling jokes in the background while they were filming Laura Dern’s scenes.
And then there’s her character’s entire plan. There is no logical reason for Admiral Holdo to keep her plans from the rest of the ship’s crew, including Poe Dameron. If the leadership was so angry at Poe for his earlier recklessness, then why didn’t they just lock him up or even execute him? They were all so angry at Poe that they just simply slapped him in the face then allowed him to freely go about the ship doing whatever he wants? My point is, if the reason Poe specifically wasn’t filled in on the plan was because of his earlier behavior, then his punishment would have been more severe. Admiral Holdo didn’t tell Poe of her plan for no reason, then.
Not to mention, her plan itself was stupid. “They are only scanning for large ships?” Seriously? It’s impossible for the First Order to simply look out the window and see dozens of ships heading toward a planet? Well, clearly not, because the evacuation ships get discovered anyway. So, even by the movie’s own logic, Holdo’s plan was stupid.
I did greatly enjoy seeing Holdo rip through the First Order fleet using lightspeed. This is something I’ve wanted to see for many years. I’ve always wondered why nobody in Star Wars ever used lightspeed as a weapon. You’d think there would be entire fleets of kamikaze-like pilots who use lightspeed to destroy ships, or even planets. So, while I liked this scene and personally had no issue with it, it did open a can of worms. Seriously, why hasn’t anyone done this before if it had always been possible? And now that it’s been done, we’re going to be thinking about it forever. People (not me) will be watching future Star Wars movies and when they see characters in a bad situation, they’ll stop and think, “Just use lightspeed!” Now that it’s been established as a weapon, a very overpowered weapon, there’s no going back to make it not happen a billion more times.
The Salt Planet Attack
In a scene that once again was ripped off from The Empire Strikes Back, the First Order inexplicably lands on some planet covered in red salt and they send in AT-ATs to break down a giant door the Resistance is hiding behind. I know that Admiral Holdo ripped through the enemy fleet with lightspeed, but seriously, if any ships were left intact enough for the First Order to land on the planet and send in a bunch of slow walkers, then why didn’t they just blow up the base with one of their space ships? Can super-powerful space ships that were such a threat throughout the entire movie so far just not strong enough to blow through a door? Or blow through part of a mountain?
Disney, I’m going to explain something to you:
In The Empire Strikes Back, the reason the Empire landed on Hoth with their AT-ATs is because the Rebels used a shield to deflect any potential bombardments. This isn’t my nerdish I-read-a-thousand-page-Wookieepedia-article-about-it knowledge speaking, this was outright explained in the movie. Very plainly explained. The Empire had to land on the planet first to get rid of the shield. They didn’t do it because “lol AT-ATs!”
By the way, Disney, great originality with those AT-ATs. Since they walked like gorillas and had giant face-cannons, they were totally different! Just like when Poe said Starkiller Base wasn’t like the Death Star simply because it was much bigger. Yep. That’s Disney logic for ya!
The movie starts in exactly the same place that The Force Awakens ends: with Rey presenting Luke his father’s lightsaber. And in a moment of comic genius, Disney has Luke just toss it over his shoulder. First of all, what the hell is so funny about that, and second…. why? The last time Luke saw his father’s lightsaber…. let me say that again: His father’s lightsaber…. was over 30 years ago in Bespin, attached to his real right hand. He’s not even curious as to how Rey got hold of that? He’s not curious as to who Rey is that she of all people would have it in the first place? Seriously, not one word before just tossing it like a piece of junk?
If Luke was so depressed and full of self-loathing that he isn’t remotely inclined to learn what’s going on, then why not just commit suicide? Or is suicide too dark for Star Wars?
I do appreciate that Luke has an arc in this movie. I like that he wasn’t treated like a flawless hero even in his old age. I genuinely love the lesson Luke learns, which is that it’s the purpose of all students to exceed their masters. But apart from that, everything about this situation either doesn’t make sense or is so contradictory to Luke’s character that it’s infuriating.
So, Luke failed his students because in one moment of weakness he tried to murder Ben…. That is the reason? That was the catalyst of this entire trilogy??? The moment that sparked all of the events in this entire trilogy all stemmed from Luke doing something HE WOULD NEVER DO??
That is not who Luke is at all. AT ALL, Disney. He didn’t vow to avenge his murdered aunt and uncle, he didn’t vow to avenge Ben Kenobi after he witnessed Vader kill him, and he didn’t try to kill Darth Vader at any point in the original trilogy despite Vader being guilty of mass genocide. He was willing to be merciful to Vader BEFORE he even knew Vader was his father. Seriously, Disney, have you even seen the original trilogy?? That entire trilogy centered around Luke’s merciful nature. It was Luke’s patient, merciful, seeing-the-good-side-of-people nature that brought Vader back to the light in the first place. Luke saw the man who destroyed the entire Jedi Order and helped the oppressive Empire rise in the first place come back to the light.
Not to mention the fact that Ben Solo was his own nephew, and his best friend’s son. That would make it even less as likely for Luke to even think about murdering him. Far, far less likely. There is just no reason whatsoever that Luke Skywalker would even think about committing cold-blooded murder. Why wasn’t it good enough for Luke to simply fail his students? Why couldn’t Luke be self-loathing for feeling like he wasn’t a good enough teacher? He could have hated himself for failing to prevent Ben from succumbing to the darkness. Luke’s self-imposed exile did NOT, for any reason, have to have attempted to murder Ben for his arc in this movie to make sense. It could have been removed entirely and it still would have made sense. In fact, it would have made even more sense.
And then at the end of the movie, Ben could have realized that Luke may have failed him, but never truly wronged him, and therefore his anger, which came from Snoke ANYWAY, was based on nothing. Ben then could have become even more angry, like he already does at the end of this movie, for simply refusing to admit to himself what’s wrong with him.
I’m going to bring up some other things about Luke. How the hell did Rey best him in a fight? (I’ll get into everything wrong with Rey later.) Luke was trained by Yoda, faced Darth Vader, and trained students for 30 years, and yet some randy girl with no training, who a month ago didn’t even know that Luke Skywalker existed, was able to beat him in a fight?
Luke never got to his 3rd lesson with Rey, so why say there would be 3 lessons in the first place? To mimic The Empire Strikes Back when Luke left prematurely to face Vader? Was that the entire logic?
Lastly, I’ll admit I don’t understand why people were upset about Luke being a Force Projection at the end of the movie. It made him unkillable, and he knew that Kylo Ren would do everything in his power to kill Luke. He had to be a projection to give the Resistance enough time to flee, otherwise he would have been blasted to death. Now, what doesn’t make sense and actually does piss me off is the fact that Luke dies after this. What killed him? Over-exerting himself to make a projection on another planet? That wouldn’t make sense, but even if it did, would it have harmed the filmmakers to explain that? I don’t get why Luke had to save the day, and then just look at the sky and die. At least there was one thing right about Luke’s death, which of course is the twin suns in the sky he looked at, reflecting the image of his home world of Tatooine.
Luke’s death is the only major thing in the movie I didn’t outright hate and actually have mixed feelings about.
The Far-Left Political Agenda
I could elaborate far more on this than I’m going to, but I will restrain a little, because I’m not in the mood to deal with loads of backlash from emotionally-fragile radical liberals.
I myself am a proud liberal, but I’m annoyed (and think it’s wrong) that this movie subtly tries to shove an agenda down its audience’s throat. The Force Awakens did this too, and probably every future Disney movie also will. Notice the entire First Order is commanded by men (except Captain Phasma), and the entire Resistance is led by women (except Admiral Ackbar). So, the bad guys are patriarchal, and the good guys are matriarchs. And then there’s Laura Dern’s character, who has purple hair and spends the entire movie just telling Poe Dameron to shut up and obey.
Oh, and Rey is still as overpowered as she was in The Force Awakens. She defeats Luke (who has had decades of training, was the child of the most powerful Force user in history, and trained students in the Force for 30 years), she is on equal footing with Kylo Ren when they are fighting Snoke’s guards, and she can clear a large pile of rocks when Leia herself can’t. Gee, I wonder why Rey is so powerful and so skilled with the Force. Could it be because she’s had any training? Nope, none at all. It’s because she’s female, and making female characters overpowered is just what’s required by law now.
And then simply to include an Asian, and to make the not-physically-fit community feel better about themselves, Disney includes a new character who is, well, fat and Asian. Everything Rose Tico’s character does in this movie is either pointless (like in Canto Bight), or outright stupid. Oh, and she’s also there to boss Finn around. And then she shoves in a message about saving the lives of animals (which in the long run, she didn’t really do)….. Ugh! Just tell a story Disney, rather than trying to appeal to the far-left radicals that are taking over our entire culture. I don’t think Rose Tico’s character was poorly written on purpose, I think Disney just wanted a random person to just put political shit in this movie. Disney just wanted a minority, and that minority will tell us to save the animals, to put men in their place, and sacrificing our lives for causes we believe in is bad.
If the movie had a far-right message instead, I’d be just as annoyed. Just don’t put this shit in your movies, period.
Starting the movie with a “Can you hear me now?” joke is just cringe-worthy. General Hux is smart enough to be selected to command an entire military, but somehow he can’t understand that he’s being toyed with? And apart from being oblivious to the obvious, he insists on continuing his “I’m a bad guy” rant while he’s being toyed with. Seriously? At least when Yoda was toying with Luke in The Empire Strikes Back, there was actually a point to it. A good point! We got a good twist out of it, too. Yoda was testing Luke’s patience, and at the same time, the audience was amused.
Every single moment, except for the scenes with Snoke, was cut short by a stupid joke or a gag. There were plenty of serious moments in the movie, but none of them lasted long enough to have any kind of emotional weight.
It’s actually baffling the lengths Disney went to to make the audience laugh. In The Force Awakens, Rey understands what it means to reach out with the Force, but for some inexplicable reason in The Last Jedi, she doesn’t understand what ‘reaching out’ means when Luke tells her to. All for the sake of a joke. And THEN Rey is stupid enough to think that a stick tickling her hands is the Force somehow…………? Seriously, Disney??? Desperate much?
This movie had my favorite Star Wars joke of all. I honestly hate saying this, since this movie was Carrie Fisher’s final movie ever, but… I’m sure you already know what I mean. I’m referring, of course, to Leia getting shot into space, and she Mary Poppins her way back to the ship. I had a really hard time holding in my laughter here.
The entire sequence with the planet Canto Bight was a joke to me. I’m sure Disney didn’t mean it to be a joke, but it sure as hell was. It ultimately accomplished nothing in the plot, it wasn’t even necessary because Admiral Holdo actually had a plan, and it wouldn’t have even happened if Holdo was smart enough to inform her crew what her plan was. So, literally everything about that sequence was a joke. But hey, I’m glad it ended with a useless, cringe-worthy lesson everybody and their dog already understands and agrees with about how animals should be treated humanely. It really showed Rose’s wisdom when she said it was all worth it because they freed the animals from captivity, even though they’re just going to get caught again and put back into captivity. Whatever you were trying to do with Canto Bight, Disney, you failed miserably. Unless you were just trying to extend the running time with filler…. In which case, I say, “That’s some hilarious filler.”
I’m going to voice all of my issues involving Snoke in this section. And I’m going to start with talking about Snoke.
At the very beginning of the movie, after the stupid “Can you hear me now?” joke and the logic-defying space battle, we see Snoke beating General Hux around the ship. Snoke wasn’t even on the ship and he’s powerful enough to torture someone from afar. Later we see Snoke humiliating Kylo Ren for still being incomplete in his training after killing his father, and he just zaps Kylo like it’s nothing. Rey, for being as inexplicably overpowered as she is, also gets thrashed around by Snoke effortlessly. We see so much evidence that Snoke is just as powerful as Emperor Palpatine, if not more powerful, and then he just dies…
Not only does he suddenly die, but he goes out like a bitch.
We didn’t learn anything about Snoke. Not a damn thing. Where did he come from, how was he so powerful, what was his motivation, why was his body torn up and scarred, and was the guy even human? Looks like we’ll never know because he dies like a bitch with no explanation for any of these questions.
Then, there’s everything involving the New Republic. Over 30 years after Return of the Jedi, and the Republic was still in the process of shaping? Or was the entire Republic inexplicably based in just one star system (the one that got destroyed in The Force Awakens)? Neither of those possibilities makes any sense. And even if either one of those were the case, how did the First Order get to be so incredibly powerful right under the Republic’s nose? If the First Order was able to get so powerful right under the Republic’s nose, then what’s stopping other military forces or groups from getting just as powerful? Is all it takes for a military force to get that powerful is to just hide out in the Outer Rim? Is it really that easy?
Whatever the explanation is, we don’t even know because we’re not told!
I’m not opposed to the idea of Rey’s parents being nobodies. I actually like it, considering that other fans always want main characters to be related to each other. Personally, I wanted Rey to be the reincarnation of Anakin Skywalker, but I’m fine with what the real answer was. I have a problem with how this explanation was given, though. We’re told that Rey’s parents sold her for drinking money but then died on Jakku shortly after. But in The Force Awakens, we saw the people who dropped her off flew away from the planet… So, they sold her, left, and then returned to Jakku without visiting her and then died? Why leave only to just come back and die? It’s technically possible, but it makes it obvious that Rey’s parents being nobodies was not the original plan.
I already talked about Luke trying to kill Ben Solo, but that explanation for Ben killing all the Jedi seems hugely inconsistent with The Force Awakens. In the flashback of Kylo Ren’s massacre of the Jedi, we see the Knights of Ren, who are not even mentioned in this movie. In addition to seeing the Knights of Ren, Luke also said in this movie that other students also betrayed the Order. Were they the Knights of Ren? That can’t be, because the Knights are told in alternate media to have formed long before this massacre. And in addition to that, we saw something very interesting in Rey’s flashback in The Force Awakens. We saw someone, who wasn’t using a lightsaber, trying to attack something. Whoever this guy was, he had his back turned to Kylo Ren when Kylo stabbed him with his lightsaber. Why was that man facing the other way? If Kylo was killing all of Luke’s students, then why did Kylo kill a man who was trying to kill someone else?
Disney, your lack of planning is showing.
As I already said, the Knights of Ren had no explanation at all, which is yet another thing never explained. Don’t forget in The Force Awakens when Snoke tells Kylo, “Not even you – master of the Knights of Ren – have ever faced such a test.” So, obviously they have some kind of importance, but The Last Jedi just completely forgets about them.
Even if Episode 9 explains all of these things, it’s still going to be an overload of information. Why skip an entire two-thirds of the trilogy to explain anything important, only to dump all the information we need at the very end? It’s either very poor planning, or it’s no planning at all. And let’s just be honest here: we’re not going to get all of the information we need in the last part of the trilogy anyway. Hell, I don’t even think the sequel trilogy will even stop after 3. Disney, being Disney and all, is just going to keep this trilogy going forever. Soon, this is going to hit them: “Why stop after 3 movies when we can keep this storyline going for ten-thousand movies?” They are going to go full-Walking Dead, where it goes on forever, without any end destination in sight, always introducing new elements and characters, only to explain them very slowly over the course of countless episodes, but never fully explaining everything.
Disney Destroyed Star Wars Permanently
I’ve heard it said that these movies are nothing to get so hugely upset about. I can see where these people are coming from, but in rare situations, it’s not always true. Star Wars is a cultural icon. It is beloved by millions of people all around the world. There has been a new Star Wars video game released every single year since 1991, and that was during the 16-year gap between the originals and the prequels. Even when there are no movies being produced, people still flocked to consume all things Star Wars. It clearly matters to a lot of people. Is that pathetic, or is there possibly a good reason for this? The latter, of course.
Luke Skywalker truly was a figure to look up to and try to be like. Han Solo was flawed, but improved, and we loved him for it. Princess Leia was a woman, but she had a stronger will than any of the men, and even when she was wearing that metal bikini, she didn’t lose any of her dignity or resolve. My point is, there are concrete reasons to love these characters. And then there’s the Force, which (before the prequels) was a spiritual entity that was more than just something that gave people superpowers. The study of it required patience and good will. And we learned that the Dark Side would permanently consume you if you ever succumbed to it, and only the power of love (Luke’s love for his father) can break it. Yes, it’s fiction, but human beings make fiction part of their daily lives for a reason. We learn from stories, true or mythical. Stories give us figures to look up to, and want to emulate. Stories teach us to never give up, and that things aren’t always what they seem. When it comes to stories, it doesn’t always matter if they’re true or not.
Destroying Luke’s character is almost just as unforgiveable as if the writers of the Bible decided to add more books to the New Testament that depicted Jesus as being a sadistic homicidal maniac. Whether you believe in Jesus or not, he is a figure worth looking up to, and we want him to forever remain that way. Sure, Luke Skywalker was never supposed to be flawless, but Disney didn’t have to make him betray his very nature. The Luke I saw in The Last Jedi was not the real Luke. The real Luke wouldn’t murder anyone in cold blood, especially if they are family. He was patient with Darth Vader and saw the good in him, despite Vader having committed mass genocide with his own hands and with the Death Star. And we know it.
I gave Disney 2 chances. I was disappointed by The Force Awakens, but I didn’t hate it. I chose to wait and see what was going to come next, and it turns out that Disney truly has no care for this franchise at all. That is why I am abandoning it for the rest of my life. The original creator himself did not have this piece of shit story in mind for the sequel trilogy anyway.
Those of us who truly love Star Wars, and have their entire lives, cannot bring themselves to give any credit to Disney. We love Star Wars, they don’t. Just because a few legal documents say that they can produce movies under the Star Wars title, that doesn’t mean they are true Star Wars stories. They’re not, and we all know it.
If I had anything to do with the creation of this film, I would be ashamed that this is what I made Carrie Fisher’s last film to be. Oh, and Mark Hamill’s final Star Wars film as well. This goes so much deeper than just a giant wasted opportunity for the original cast; it’s a wasted opportunity on Disney’s part to keep Star Wars fans loyal to the new movies and to create new things in the Star Wars universe that will resonate with people for decades to come. Instead of expanding our knowledge of the Force, or journeying into uncharted regions of the galaxy, or just doing anything original at all for the sequel trilogy, Disney decided to recycle things we’ve already seen while adding nothing of real value. Each new episode has to be a remake of the original trilogy but with minimal changes here and there so that it’s “technically” not exactly the same as the originals. Like I said earlier, Disney was actually convinced that making the new Death Star in Force Awakens simply bigger than the original Death Star somehow meant that it was totally different. This is literally what they said in the movie.
This is what you get when you have an infinite budget and no care for the art.
George Lucas got a lot of criticism for the prequels instead of love. Criticism I believe he still deserves. But still, he at least cared. He didn’t only do what would sell the most tickets, he tried to add to the lore. He added an abundance of new characters in the prequels and almost none of the old ones. That in itself is effort.
A large part of why the prequels were poorly made, and why the sequels are just atrocious, is because of money. In 1976, Lucas didn’t have infinite resources. The originals were plagued with problems, special effects were limited at that point in history, and Lucas didn’t have an already-existing fan base to provide support. Lucas was a rebel. He was trying to make his own creation, not some corporate assembly-line product. But once he had more than he needed, it corrupted him. Don’t forget, he’s the one who sold Star Wars to Disney in the first place. The rebel became the Empire.
What I honestly don’t understand is why Lucas didn’t give the franchise over to a small group who have proven for years that they truly love Star Wars. A small studio wouldn’t have an infinite budget for each film, which would be the ultimate motivation for them to make the best Star Wars films they possibly could. And why would they need a giant budget anyway? There are literally millions of fans of the franchise all over the world. Even if a small studio made future Star Wars films with a budget of just $1 million, it would still gross hundreds of millions, simply because of the fan base alone. Lucas could have made sure his baby was left in the hands of people who loved it, ensuring that it lives as long as possible.
Because Disney has butchered everything we love about Star Wars, from the characters to the very meaning of the movies themselves, they have lost me as a loyal fan. They have lost many people as loyal fans. And this trend is only going to continue. Just the sheer fact that we are getting a new film every single year for the rest of eternity is going to make the general public sick of something they once loved. What a shame.
Disney cannot undo the damage they have done. The movies they have made will exist forever. At no point in the future can they say the events in these movies didn’t really happen. But that’s fine, because I’m done with the Disney canon forever. Star Wars is not a product to us, the ones who made Star Wars popular in the first place. To us, it’s beloved legend. It’s art. It’s stories to learn from.
