The Emperor Returns

Recommended Posts

TFA was a victory lap of the originals. TLJ was an absolute mess that cauterised the plot points from TFA. This new one... my god, they're getting desperate if they're having to bait with Palpatine. "Oh no, all of our new characters suck, we'll have to resurrect an old one just to make people interested again!" Couldn't possibly revive Snoke instead, implying he's actually Plagueis himself, no they failed to make him as iconic as Emps. They only decent thing they included at all in the new films was a brief glimpse of the Knights of Ren (who should've been far more than just a glimpse), and it's too late to bring them in now when they would've made a perfect trilogy-wide group of sympathetic villains.

Well, they're in a bit of a pickle because the second act was hot steaming garbage.  With the prequel triology, I think the intent was to have Jar Jar Binks be big bad but hiding in plain sight (aka Darth Jar Jar theory), but he was so poorly received that Lucas changed course. and managed to salvage the prequel triology (as IMO it got better with 2 and 3).  Had Rian Johnson not decided to wave about his Johnson and screw up the sequel triology with TLJ, it might be a completely different story... and this is all the fault of Kathleen Kennedy for basically killing a franchise because she'd rather virtue signal than make a good film.
