I’m glad I’m not the only one. I hated the new movie... Disney didn’t learn from the issue from Episode 7 and instead still decided to try to remake the original trilogy rather than building off of them...

The movie was nothing like empire or any previous movie aside from a few references and Easter eggs. 👀

It’s the complete opposite of the episode 7: a new hope 2


And yet it was practically Episode 8: The New Order Strikes Back.
Forgive me for I am a noob. I know not what I do.

I've heard Luke gets better treatment in the game than he does in the film.

In the movie he’s a Torn, cynicle yoda type Jedi instead of this big badass some fanboys were expecting and I think for the better, it is Mark Hamills best performance by far that even tops his various jokers and fits the movie so well.

TLJ is really not for the Star Wars fan who has a preconcieved notion of what Star Wars should be.


I understood Luke's point of view and it was an interesting take on the character. However in the end I felt he was a bit wasted: he sits around on a rock being depressed for most of the film.

Personally I would've preferred it if Luke had become more like Obi Wan from A New Hope. If they had to kill him off why not do that in the third movie? As it is now the third movie will have no Luke unless he's a force ghost, not much Leia either etc. I think that's a shame considering how interesting those characters are. They have so much knowledge and experience to pass onto the youngers in the movies.

I don't like the direction that the movies are going. There is this idea of "kill the past" that seems like a brute way of doing things concerning the future of Star Wars. They killed Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Admiral Ackbar, and they even killed Anakin's Light saber. So we can be left with Kilo and Rey? Kilo and Rey are not legendary figures. Luke, Vader, Yoda, and others were legendary figures.

I think that they would be making a serious mistake if their intention is to get rid of the Jedi. The Jedi have always been there throughout all of Star Wars history.

I was unsatisfied with The Last Jedi. Once I saw that purple haired rebel admiral I knew that there was something wrong. You simply do not use a purple haired woman in her upper 50s as an admiral. I may even prefer Jar Jar Binks over a purple haired admiral. It was bad enough that we had the whiny imperial admiral in his 20s who started in the Force Awakens.


People criticized George Lucas for the prequels, and rightly so for the script. The way that people talk in the prequels is flat out ridiculous. You can't deny that George Lucas was a genius, though. He invented the force, the Jedi, the Sith, Chewbaca, Darth vader, the Millenium Falcon, and a ton more. Given the ideas that were implimented and suggested in The Last Jedi, I would definitely take George Lucas over the people currently in charge of the Star Wars Franchise.


I don’t want Star Wars to spend 40 years on Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. It’s time to move on and take the story in a new direction. Thankfully that’s what they’re doing.


I think it's fine to move things on a bit. I would've liked to have seen Luke still alive in the next movie though. Hopefully he sticks around as a force ghost. There's no need to ditch everything from the OT.
I love the friends I've gathered together on this thin raft.

No one is saying that they should do that. Think about them getting rid of the Jedi, and turning this basically into X-men or something like that.

Now I have an idea for the next movie that could possibly save Star Wars. Kilo Ren supposedly took a few students with him and killed the rest after he burned Luke's Jedi school, right? Maybe that was wrong. Maybe for the next movie they could say that a good number of those students survived. Rey could find those survivors to form a new Jedi order to take on Kilo Ren. In the end they survive, and a new Jedi Order is born.

Radical changes to the fundamental idea of Star Wars is not wanted. They're going to run the franchise to the ground of they continue in the direction that it seems that they're going.

When you start seeing stuff like this you start to wonder if they're just randomly throwing anyone in these movies.

Han only came back to be killed off, holdo is a legendary captain in the canon novels, ackbars actor died in real life.

You can’t create new legends by holding on to the past, you had TFA for that, Kylo was by far the best thing about TLJ and I would dare to say he has far more depth and actual personality than any of the other movie villains purely by going off the first two movies in their trilogies. Even vader They split the saber to show how in balance Rey and kylo are and it’s a very powerful way to do it, the saber is gone but the crystal still exist and Rey has both half’s

When it’s all said and done kylo, Rey, Finn and BB8 will all be sitting in the same status as Vader, obiwan, sidious, han, princess and r2d2.

Atleast porgs > ewoks.

Also the Jedi was a s***ty order and needs to be modernised to survive.

Sadly with Abrams doing the last movie we will get such a safe ending it’ll be pretty gross and not feel like a ninth movie but a 6.5. That’s what I’m worried about, I believe a sequel should pay homage to what has come before but also take new risk and carry on the story and not be tied down to the past. Rebels, a cartoon, takes more risks than TFA ever did lmao.

I didn't see any radical changes to the fundamental idea of Star Wars. Everyone has an idea of how they want everything to play out and they're upset now that their theories haven't worked out. That's expected and I understand that. They will never please everyone with these sequels. This franchise is too near and dear to people's hearts, so damned if they do and damned if they don't.

I do miss Starkiller not being cannon but after TFU2 it’s okay.

Starkiller base was a nice throwback name.

Admiral Holdo looks like a straight up p****. She looks like she couldn't survive 2 seconds in a real fight. You can not have someone that projects the image of a p**** as an admiral or a general. You need someone in there that projects the image of a warrior, not a p****.

Luke looks like a little nerd in the og trilogy, ackbar is a fish, or calamari to be exact, Anakin, Ahsoka, Ezra and Padme.

Star Wars is full of heros that look weak as s***.

Looks don’t mean s*** when it come to Star Wars, it’s backstory, actions and personality that does.
