I was so excited in 1999 for The Phantom Menace. I don’t think any movie will ever match that level of hype for me. I was eventually disappointed though. Still, I kept on hoping each prequel would be better than the last. I think they’re all about the same though.
As the prequels rolled on, it felt like a really dark time for me. So many people seemed to be loving the prequels, and the prequels were the dominating everything that featured Star Wars. I thought that was the end it for me, and there would never be anything I loved as much as the Originals.
Fast forward to The Force Awakens and it was like a blast of fresh air. I loved that Disney acquired Star Wars and I love what JJ did. Then Rogue One and I liked that one even more. Rogue One was the kind of story I would make up in my head as I was playing with Star Wars toys as a kid. I certainly never acted out senate negotiations with my figures.
So do I like the movies continuing? They honestly couldn’t make too many of these for me. I thinks it’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan. I sympathize with the prequel fans who just cant get into these new movies. I’ve been where you are. I firmly believe they will make something you will like eventually, because they sure don’t look like there going to be stopping any time soon, and I couldn’t be happier.
