Like the original trilogy, the sequel trilogy doesn’t show or talk about how civilians feel about the Republic, the First Order, the Resistance, etc. Rebels shows how people on Lothal feel but not how people anywhere else feel. I would have liked seeing people complaining about the Empire the way we see people complain about the Jedi in TCW.
If Plagueis shows up in the ST, not only will I refuse to watch the movies, but I won't so much as watch the trailers, either. - DuracellEnergizer
