I feel TLJ took the biggest risks but did the most damage in the process. I lived the fact they highlighted capitalism, slavery, a broken Luke and the final scene with Leia but it did miss the mark on many things. Daisy Ridley dialogue was awesome and they disrespected Ackbar. Unforgivable imo.
Yep. TLJ has some good aspects, but the bad aspects really outweigh the good–so much so it damages the franchise. If you change a character for the worse, especially when it’s the climax of a longrunning story, then that leaves a bad taste in many viewers’ mouths. See Game of Thrones as a good example of how to subvert expectations, derail a character, and retroactively ruin watching that character again since you know the ending is bad.
Since the rest of the sequel trilogy bookending TLJ ignores its characters, and with the Mandolorian subtly trying not to acknowledge them either, it seems Disney is picking up on that. We won’t be seeing [A Star Wars Story:Holdo/Rose/nameless-creepy-guy-“don’t join”]. Looking forward to finding how they will retcon Kylo’s school killing to miraculously miss Grogu (for the second time).
