The reviews on The Last Jedi range from “IT’S THE BEST THING EVA!!!” To “IT”S WORSE THAN THE PREQUELS!!”
My first real problem with The Last Jedi was when I heard that The Force Awakens had to have its ending redone and cut short (Didn’t you wonder why Mark Hamill had no lines?) because it conflicted with the opening of The Last Jedi.
Yes, you read that right, the endings conflicted. Because one follows hot on the heels of The Force Awakens. No time passes. At all. Did anyone even read the script for the first movie before making the next?
I think the answer is… no. Major threads that came up in the midst of The Force Awakens are cut abruptly, characters that have been built up with backstory (and even a whole novel in one case) are obliterated.
