You can't blame wokeness on them being not as good as the originals.
It's been 40 odd years since the originals came out people's attitudes have changed , so they have to produce a story that
reflects that. People would complain about it either way.
Movies are a global market and Starwars is a global brand now. If they were made for a niche market, that would be like
Communism and that doesn't work. They need money to be viable. Capitalism.
I do agree with you the sequel saga film series was executed badly to a certain extent. It started off OK but the second one
was when it started to go badly wrong. Carrie Fisher dying didn't help and the director of the second pretty much seemed to do his own thing and left the 3rd film with alot to sort out. So everything plot wise, seems rushed and shoved into holes with the last one and not explained properly. Like Rey and her amazing power levels.
But that's Star wars for you, it's always been either a triumph or a bit of a disaster.
Jar-Jar binks for instance.
The very first one was a disaster until George Lucas's wife at the time edited it and tightened it up.
She won an Oscar for that. She has been called his secret weapon.
They divorced in 1983. You could say Star wars has been trash since then honestly.
Out of the Star wars movies, how many of them have been actually been really good ? 2 maybe.
And let's not get started on the Ewok movies and the holiday special 😀
