That’s the word to describe the movie. “Not explained”.

Bingo.

Honestly as much as I hate to say it, I’m just done with new Star Wars all together after this. I hated TFA and TLJ but still spent years arguing about the problems with them because while 99.99% of me was done with Disney Star Wars, there was still that 00.01% of me that had hope things would change. I’m so passionate about Star Wars and its story because Star Wars means so much to me, so I guess arguing and debating TFA and TLJ gave me a reason to still care about the franchise; because maybe I’d “win” and things would get better if I just persisted.

After TROS I can’t even work up the energy to argue with people anymore, I just don’t care. I don’t even care enough to keep watching The Mandalorian; I’m finally 100% apathetic and disinterested in anything this zombie franchise has to offer anymore, they’ve lost all good will and I’ll never be giving them another cent.

They somehow found a way to torpedo cinema’s biggest franchise in just four years. If it wasn’t so tragic it’d be painfully impressive.

I don’t even think I’m mad about it, I just… Feel nothing. It’s too much energy to keep following something that makes me angry to even think about. I’m sick of hating Star Wars, so I’ll just keep George’s Saga of I - VI close and my library of Old EU books stocked, that’s all I need.

If people enjoy whatever the hell this Frankenstein of a franchise has turned into then cool, more power to you. But I can’t do this crap anymore, it’s not worth it.
