I’m right there with you man. Lucusfilm has not seen a single penny from me since TLJ, and that includes toys and merchandise. It just got to be way too much to ignore. I walked out of that movie actually mad and that is saying something since my wife is always saying how emotionless I am, and how it’s impossible to get a reaction out of me. They achieved the impossible that night.
From a setting point, it makes NO SENSE to place a story in Star <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>Wars</span> at the height of the time of “peace and prosperity of the Republic.” CONFLICT drives story; what conflict could take place that would make this story worth reading?
On top of that, the character descriptions are garbage writing and is a strong warning to stay away or just waste your time/money.
Having said all of that, I will likely do a review of it on my YouTube channel when it comes out. *sigh*
I had the OT on VHS as far back as I can consiously remember, but it’s more the prequels that I grew up with. While I understand the objectively the OT is the best in the story it tells and its character arcs, I have to *subjectively* swear by the prequels. I’m also a fan of much of the EU. Especially lots of Old Republic stuff, the two KOTOR games in particular.
Disney Trilogy is garbage, however. I hath spoken.
Yeah that and until the sequel trilogy is de-canonised, I can’t enjoy anything in the time period knowing it connects to those movies, it sucks, I don’t want to have those feelings towards Star Wars, I’ve loved it since I was a kid and now it hurts me to watch it, how F-ed up is that ?
