That is certainly another issue. Star Wars was certainly a magical event, for whatever reason… Whether the original trilogy is good or not, for whatever reason, it most certainly is “special”
Any attempt to extend it is essentially trying to catch lightning in a bottle.
But don’t get me wrong. I enjoyed it. As I said, I enjoyed it more than the last three Star Wars movies that came out. Maybe even the last four. But if I had to give it an honest letter grade, on its own merit, it’s probably a B. We’re talking 3 out of 5 stars… it’s…. “Better than average”
