As hard as it is to believe, there are actually some Star Wars fans who, for all the hidden brilliance and meta of the sequel trilogy that has crossed our minds, don’t think the saga makes much sense from a chronological standpoint.
Jokes aside, Disney sequels have been criticized for everything you can think of, with many veterans going so far as to suggest that they shouldn’t be considered canon. But while most of these issues stem from narrative inconsistencies within the timeline of the three films themselves, not to mention the somewhat lackluster characterization of the main cast, including Rey, Finn, and Poe, one person has recently raised the theme of conflicting timelines. , especially when taking into account the mandalorian.
In short, this Star Wars fan suggests that there was no way the First Order could become as powerful and influential as it did in that short span. But well, in the rise of skywalker, we literally went to a secret place on the other side of the galaxy where the Emperor had a legion of over a thousand Star Destroyers ready to be deployed, an army almost definitely stronger than the one he fielded at the height of the Empire with the resources of an entire galaxy backing him up. So I think it’s been a long time since Star Wars the writers have stopped overthinking these things altogether.
In fact, it could be argued that most of the Star Wars The fandom’s problems with this story boil down to the die-hard fans putting more thought into the story and its continuity than the Disney writers.
However, that hasn’t stopped some people from coming out in defense of the sequels, and with strong arguments too.
And so continues the endless saga of Star Wars Debate over the sequel to the trilogy…
