As it stands I feel lots of apathy because the story I grew attached to feels incomplete and like it’s missing important pieces to the puzzle. I’m sad to say but I don’t know if I’ll ever fully be able to get into Disney Star Wars. I can’t even get into Mandalorian. I tried watching the first few minutes of the first episode but I just felt emotionally detached like I was mourning the lost of a family member. I want to get into it and enjoy it for what it is but everything feels so corporate now. It feels like everything within the series now relies on nostalgia and nothing more.

I’m in the same boat. I know that there are still good aspects of modern Star Wars, but the current state of things just doesn’t appeal to me anymore. I’m still revisiting some of the old EU books and playing KOTOR, but I have no investment in Star Wars as an ongoing franchise. I’m far more excited about the great work done on fan preservations than I am about any official new content.
