Disney had no plans for this trilogy and they needed it cause boy did they really screw up. George Lucas gave them an outline for how Episodes 7, 8, and 9 would go if he did them, and Disney chucked them over their shoulder like Luke tragically did his father's lightsaber in Episode 8. Cause they figured THEY could make a better trilogy, but instead we got a jumbled mess of incoherent plots cause the directors could not collaborate among many, many other issues.
They did not care at all about proper storytelling. They just bought Star Wars for name recognition and hoped that people were dumb enough to take whatever garbage was thrown at them regardless cause at the time, Star Wars sold. And yet now, Star Wars merchandise rots on store shelves untouched. Hasbro, the toy company that makes Star Wars toys actually complained about the massive money losses they received thank to The Last Jedi and Solo movies. Just look at how small the Star Wars section is in toy aisles now whereas they used to be huge.
The Mandalorian has more of that Star Wars feel to it than the Disney "crapilogy". That show is Star Wars. The sequel trilogy is someone's bad fanfiction that they're writing as they're already shooting the films and just throwing in whatever they think "sounds cool" while crapping all over the legacy characters.
Episode 7 was a terrible rehash of Episode 4 cause J.J. Abrams tends to just copy/paste story ideas from one film to another.
Episode 8 destroyed Luke Skywalker as a character by turning him from a galactic hero...into a cowardly, grumpy hermit. Episode 9 further destroys Luke as well as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader along with the whole ending of Return of the Jedi becoming meaningless.
To sum up how bad this trilogy is...Miss Ma-Rey Sue herself said it best: "I am ALL of the Jedi."
No, Rey. No, you are not.
Glad I didn't have to give up money to see any of the films, and yet I still feel ripped off.
