I have now watched the Last Jedi 2 times and then I watched the Lucas movies. I have watched the clone wars. There is a story line there. The last Jedi dosent carry that story forward. It treats those movies like myth and legends. they treat those movies with contempt. I don't think people who are fans will like this. I think they are killing this story line on purpose. I think they see it as a tether that needs to be cut in order to expand the universe and they are going down a path I can't follow. Rogue one showed they could expand the universe with out messing with this story line but I can't see how they will win the trust of the fans back?
