I hate how Disney has brought back the aversion to showing civilians or talking about their perspectives

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

Rogue One and Solo - both Lucasfilm releases under the Disney ownership era - seem to have scenes where the general public are being oppressed by the Empire - where the thoughts of those experiencing and viewing what is occurring is quite apparent (albeit with a feeling of helplessness).

Later in the GFFA timeline… when you’re being oppressed it is best to keep quiet, your head down, and not talk in public about your overlords with strangers or even people who you think you can trust - open or public criticism of your fascist oppressors (who are not opposed to killing, executing and interrogating opponents or ‘people who are in the way’) probably hasn’t and doesn’t go down too well…
 

When you say ‘Disney’ in the thread title… you mean the ‘Disney-era Star Wars content’, yes?

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? 
Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

In Resistance they do actually talk about the relationship between the Resistance, First Order, and everyone else a fair bit.

Civilians’ daily lives and thoughts feature prominently in The Mandalorian.

So shines a good deed in a weary world.

Ahsoka’s Walkabout arc is all about showing Ahsoka how civilians view the Jedi and broader conflict.

(Though this arc was originally written during the original run, the Martez Sisters were created in the Disney Era. Han/Nyx and Lando would served similar roles, but felt less like “normal civilians” since they’re recurring heroes)

Rebels is a Disney era production…
