MY OPINION OF THE STAR WARS SEQUEL TRILOGY

I know a number of fans did not enjoy the sequel trilogy and they are entitled to their opinions. However, I wish to express my own opinion regarding the sequel trilogy. The haters and critics can say what they will of the sequel trilogy, but I thoroughly enjoyed them. They may have had their respective flaws and plot holes, but every Star Wars movie has those in one form or another. Fortunately, these plot holes paved the way for more stories to be told that would fill in the blanks that were left in the movies, which further increased my sense of fandom and devotion to the franchise. I enjoyed the chemistry of the characters, the action of the battle sequences, and the notable references to the Legends Expanded Universe. I liked that they were not one hundred percent CGI and had animatronics in them like the original trilogy. I also enjoyed the concept of passing on a legacy. The First Order were the heirs of the Galactic Empire’s legacy, the Resistance were the heirs of the Rebel Alliance’s legacy, Kylo Ren was the heir to Darth Vader’s legacy, and Rey was the heir to the legacies of both the Jedi and Emperor Palpatine. Also, I like how the trilogy ended because even though the bloodline of Anakin Skywalker was severed, his name and legacy would endure through Rey Skywalker. This left the door wide open for new stories to be told in the future. As I said, some fans are entitled to their opinions about the sequels, but regardless of what we think, these films will be the story that new generations of Star Wars fans will come to accept.
