This thread is for people whose enthusiasm for Star Wars was severely diminished by the ongoing sequel trilogy. Growing up, I loved the franchise, but for so many different reasons, TFA and TLJ just took my love for Luke, Han, and Leia and destroyed it, at least as it pertains to those movies. They’re mediocre films to begin with, and TLJ is an absolute disaster of a Star Wars movie. I’ve seen a few people who share this mindset, and to those I ask, how are you coping with this? How can you salvage your love for Star Wars when the official canon has gone so bad? We can go back to our books and video games, but going forward the damage is catastrophic. My best bet is to lay low and bunker down until a new trilogy gets made that’s chronologically far removed from the Lucas era. It’s a harsh reality to face, but until that happens, Star Wars is just a finished franchise for me.
