Also Lucas hasn’t made a solid ending to a SW film since Empire. What’s sad is that I don’t even know all the specifics of what Lucas contributed to the ending of Empire so I wouldn’t be so quick to give him that type of props.
I dislike AOTC, but I think it had a solid ending. The war begins and we see the massive army ready to ship out to the front lines and Anakin and Padme sneak away for a forbidden wedding and whatever pleasure they can get in a galaxy about to be torn apart by war. Of course it looks terrible and you have to forget the last 2 hours.
In general the ending was competent, but everything that preceded the ending was garbage and endings are built upon the foundations of a story. Not even one person at the end continued to question the suspect nature surrounding the Clone Army and that tarnished the whole thing for me.
I haven’t watched the Prequels in at least 6 years so its all faded a bit for me.
The Clone Wars is far superior anyway. I didn’t watch it in broadcast order but the Chronological Story one.
Episode IX will be a worthy addition to my movie ticket stub collection. IDGAF if Abrams is returning but it woulda been nice if different director.
I caught the Clone Wars when Netflix gave me a free trial month. I like some arcs, didn’t like others. Mandalore and the Darksaber was cool, Maul’s resurrection worked better than it had any right to and I’m probably the only one who didn’t care for the Mortis stuff.
As for Abrams, they were in a tight spot and he did deliver a 2 billion dollar movie for them. Carrie Fisher’s death was so unexpected that it put the plans into a tailspin and Collin wasn’t able to overcome it. Rian Johnson is probably exhausted and rightly didn’t want to go back in and do another one, though him taking a look at the script for 9 would be a good thing.
