I fail to understand how TFA (which features the death of a major classic character, the maiming of a new character, depictions of psychic torture, and the wholesale destruction of multiple inhabited planets) is more family friendly than TPM or AOTC. I might give you ROTS, but even that had incredibly childish humor throughout most of the first half, and Anakin’s turn is done in the most family-friendly way it could have been done. (Though the immolation scene and Order 66 are probably less family-friendly than anything in TFA.)
Not enjoying the movie is one thing (and I do understand and accept most of the criticisms of the film, I just wasn’t as bothered by them as most were), but I honestly don’t understand people who think Star Wars has become more Disney-fied since the sale. If anything, it’s gotten darker. Any “Disneyfication” present in TFA I’d chalk up to Abrams more than Disney itself.
