I’m sure a lot of people would find my ideal trilogy bad.
But, what I have to work with is garbage.
No idea if it will ever happen.
I’m pretty content with

Kotor 1 and 2
Some prequel fan edits
Tartakovsky’s clone Wars
Clone Wars
Rebels
OT
The Mandalorian
Some of Marvel’s new graphic Novels.
Some of Legends.
And the Mandalorian

As the Canon I’m stuck with.
Not a fan of what Disney did, they really fucked up.
I’m not sure if the sequels can be saved.
It is a lesson in not letting your ambitions overwrite what the story needs.
Rian Johnson is no Nicholas Meyer, I’m afraid.
He didn’t bless us with Star Wars’ answer to ‘Wrath of Khan’.
He gave us Space Vacation.

To me, the sequel trilogy in it’s current state, is not Star Wars, and it doesn’t seem that it ever could be.
I don’t know what it is.
It’s unrecognizable.
Like fan series based on Star Trek.
It’s bad fan fiction.
What really makes me sad, is Rian Johnson’s right hand man called Luke “Obi” in TLJ.
How?
He’s obviously Yoda, not “Obi”.
Obi didn’t exile himself, and lose his purpose in despair.
Obi had a purpose, and so did Yoda for that matter.
All Johnson did was bastardize the second film.
