I don’t know if this is exactly an unpopular opinion, but still…

Having a Star Wars personal Canon is the only way to be able to enjoy the Saga with stillness, serenity and without heaviness. If you don’t like something, then just pretend it doesn’t exist and ignore it. If you don’t like something, then it’s not Canon. Simple and effective. I can say from experience that those who live with this philosophy can be more relaxed and have the best possible Star Wars experience, because they’re not forced to fight daily with the idea that something they hate exists in the universe, because they can just ignore what they don’t like and pretend It doesn’t exist.

100% this. I’ve seen a saying somewhere on here, something like “Star Wars is a buffet, enjoy the stuff you want, and leave the rest”.

Let people enjoy what they like. There is so much in Star Wars (film, tv, books, comics, music, games) to take and enjoy, or to leave aside if not.

 

I also struggle to understand George and Prequel zealots’ narrow minded views of people not liking the Prequels is because “you just don’t understand them” or “no, you must watch X, Y, Z to understand George intent and his films”, or simply trying to work George into every post or thread they make. This seems to be a more recent occurrence online in general for PT discussions. Rarely ever talking about the what occurs onscreen, what they themselves actually enjoyed about the the PT, or adding anything new to the discussions, other than condescension and some veiled insults, and also derailing the original topic of the thread. I’m not talking about about the everyday regular Prequel fans or people who simply enjoy most things Star Wars, just the G&P zealots.

Of course everyone is grateful to George for Star Wars, his creation and his dedication, but Star Wars thankfully moved on far beyond George and his retconned and re-invented visions. There is so much more to try, to experience, and enjoy.
