How the Mandalorian compares to the newest Star Wars trilogy

In February 2014, Disney announced the release of “The Force Awakens”, the sequel to the original Skywalker trilogy. This was a new hope for star wars fans as they hadn’t had much content to go off of in many years. The movie would start off the sequel trilogy (“The Force Awakens”, “The Last Jedi”, “The Rise of Skywalker”) in the Skywalker era, and was the beginning of Disney’s influence over Star Wars. In my opinion, the storyline in these movies caused them to be the worst of the Star Wars movies in history and a few of the worst Disney films to date. 

When I first watched “The Force Awakens”, I liked it. Still to this day, I don’t think it’s a bad movie. What spoiled the trilogy for me was the second movie, “The Last Jedi”. This movie is the worst in DStar Wars history without a shadow of a doubt in my mind. While the storytelling was passable in “The Force Awakens”, it was down right deplorable in “The Last Jedi”. It made no sense and doesn’t fit with the original trilogy at all. 

The visuals and graphics of “The Last Jedi” look great and there are some cool scenes, but this is completely ruined by the terrible plot. If you only watched the sequels to the original trilogy, (“A New Hope”, “Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi”) then maybe you would enjoy the movies, but if you watch the original trilogy and understood the plot you would see how little sense the sequels make. 

However, Disney has done some good in the Star Wars Universe. They released a live action TV-series called “The Mandalorian”. This show is great and I really enjoy it, but it is not enough to make up for the sequel trilogy. 

Overall, Disney has ruined the Skywalker saga for me. The movies will never be the same in my book. While Disney has done a lot of bad, I still believe they can turn it around with the live action shows they are making. I hope that Disney can figure their stuff out and return Star Wars to its former glory.
