I just really wish the EU was still canon. I know they wanted to take it in their own direction but we all know the EU so well and have become attached to the characters we’ve come to know and love from the brilliant authors who have truly fleshed out the SW universe. I know this might not be a big deal to more casual fans, but I’m sure there are so many of us who want the SW we know and love, and not what basically amounts to a massive re-write of the entire canon. I know this isn’t an original opinion but it just makes me very sad to lose so much.
TLJ was a disgrace to the character of Luke Skywalker, a character who we all know would do better than to fall into the traps of the Jedi of old, that being the inaction of the Jedi Council. He becomes a hermit and shuts himself off, which is the most extreme exemplification of the failures of the old Jedi. Luke cares too much about his friends and the Galaxy at large to just shut himself off. Mark Hamill even knows this, he has stated many times that he dislikes the new portrayal of Luke. It’s truly sad to see.
