Nope, sorry, but we saw the Alliance win. We saw the Empire defeated. Showing us a strong and powerful Empire and a devestated Republic that relies on a Rebellion to fight said Empire yet again is just poor writing. Thematically it makes no sense to break the implicit promise of the OT that defeating the Empire will fix it all and return the galaxy to its status quo of 25,000 years of civilised peace.

There’s mention in supplemental materials about how the New Order is just a remnant in a little corner of the Unknown Regions and is basically not worth shit but we don’t see that in the film. And the film is what gives the impression of theuniverse it is set in. And that universe is Empire Supreme.
