They are good film's in there own right but in no way worthy of the star wars title.
Disney seem set on a course to destroy much of the star wars legacy and to mold it the way they want it to be but even with the dreadful
metchlorian's and youngling's Lucasart's Prequel trilogy were actually better than what disney has done with the franchise (and had they gone ahead
and revealed Jar Jar Bink's there most despised character was actually a sith Lord and not cut out Padme's knife behind her back seen when she last
see's Anakin then Lucas could have saved the reputation of that trilogy with a truly adult twist worthy of the fan's whom saw the original star wars
when they were kid's).
So far despite fantastic special effect's Disney have failed to capture the atmosphere of the star wars saga, they have failed to make film's worthy
of the name and there plot line is utterly and unreservedly crap, there story seem's contrived and yet to fit there poor plot into the star wars
universe they have now made non cannon much star wars lore which was fully cannon, even to deciding that the old republic is no longer cannon lore.
Great as a stand alone series of movies but overshadowed and paled into utter insignificance by the franchise they pretend too.
In fact they plot, destroying Coruscant and the core worlds, the seat of most of the franchise intrigue and back stabbing was a very bad move that
would only have been made if the intent was to kill off the star wars franchise once and for all as if Disney are pissing all over it and then tearing
down a hated edifice that bested them in the past.
They need better writers, better directors and perhaps even to hire some REAL star wars writers.
Even Mark Hammil hates what they have done, Harrison Ford only probably likes it because he has ungrateful actor's buzz were he will always be
associated with his star wars character but I doubt other than that he would like the plot at all and poor Carrie Fischer can't they even let her rest
in peace Disney have no soul and no respect.
In Episode IV it was Annakin now Darth Vader whom slew his old master and mentor, Alec Guiness (the best Obi Wan - even though he utterly hated the
role, never watched the movie and thought of star wars as childish being more of an old fashioned stage actor).
Before Obi ALLOWED Darth to take off his head he warned Darth that if he struck him down he would become greater than Darth would ever imagine and
indeed he did becoming one with the force which had nothing to do with Metachlorian's until a very jaded Lucas decided to invent them to replace the
original spiritual force of the original trilogy.
Darth never actually touches him though he wing's his light-saber through were Obi's neck was and Obi's mysteriously empty cloak then simply fall's
to the floor with no sign of Obi anywhere as he has completely transmuted into the force - not so much a force ghost as one with the force the
ultimate enlightenment Jedi masters seek - a bit like the ascension of the ancients in Star Gate.
So Darth killed Obi Wan or rather he tried to and instead Obi Wan was transmuted into a being of pure energy - no metachlorian's like I say.
That was system's away from were Luke finally fires a proton torpedo which is able to pass through the ray shielding of the exhaust vent at the end
of a trench bristling with turbo lasers - which mostly miss there targets - and which then starts' a cascade chain reaction of explosion's like
domino's going off and finally destroyed the evil super villain's weapon of mass destruction.
