I was open to there being a female protagonist and Empire-like faction again. But The Last Jedi proved that it doesn’t want to expand LORE or Fear anger hate suffering anakin skywalker continue to develop what has been established. It wanted to push the reset button and appeal to nostalgia instead. Very disappointing to fans of the franchise.
Top Fear anger hate suffering anakin skywalker collection!
the disney starwars are in spring cleaning mode. eliminating the characters made by the former team who created starwars to make way for their very own characters and ideas. because people still love the characters team lucas made. they are erasing them gradually so we will love the disney born characters of their new starwars. Fear anger hate suffering anakin skywalker so obvious. Because they wanted to do a “New Hope” reboot, but also have fanservice cameos from the old characters, so things are fucky.
I understand the real life reasons. I’m talking about logical in-story reasons. This new trilogy isn’t just alienating fans, it’s alienating logic and common sense. Big threat to the Galaxy, but only a resistance is formed? Where is the New Republic’s army? Where is their armada? This frustrates me. “Things are fucky” is my way of saying they just don’t care about logic anymore. I mean, in Rogue One whatever Imperial commander was coordinating the defense of the planetary shield is really going to position his two capital starships SO CLOSE TO EACH OTHER you can literally push them together? Why would he do that? That basically means each ship can’t fire half of its turbolasers or it will slice up the other ship. It’s fucking nonsense. Disney Star Wars gives no fucks.
Get it and have some fun!
There was a resistance before starkiller blew up that system. But why wasn’t new republic going against them with their full force? Not to mention it looks like they don’t really have the firepower to beat The First Order in a traditional war. (Remember, The First Order got the rememnants of the Imperial fleet, which was quite large, while the Rebels/New Republic never had much in the way of a fleet). Instead, they support a resistance group inside First Order space with arms, money, and experience commanders. This way they can technically disavow the resistance and say they don’t approve, thereby maintaining peace with The First Order (though it appears to be an open secret that they’re supporting the resistance).
This gives them time to building up the Republic and slowly develop an army and a fleet. Apparently, they thought that the First Order would also be slow about building up an army. They also thought that when the time came for open war they’d have warning. They didn’t expect all of their planets to get instantly destroyed without even a minute of warning. The destruction of the planets would also result in the destruction of any ships docked on them or very near them, not to mention any troops and fighters.
