        Well...I'd say that the original trilogy felt like a story that needed to be told whereas the new trilogy there really isn't much happening truth be doesnt try to be its own thing, it just heavily relies on nostalgia and they cant even get that right, they messed up luke's character a little bit

          Vanity Fair is pro Disney propaganda. I want that fairy tale ending Mr. Soy.

            The difference is that once sucks while the other one doesnt.

              A.K.A DISNEY SUCKS, Disney ruined it and so did you by just standing still and doing nothing. And saying nothing.

                The sequel characters are more human than the previous trilogies.

                  The frist Star Wars trilogy under George Lucas were masterpieces and the new Star Wars trilogy under the control of Disney sucks!

                        Not all of the original trilogy was fairy tail. You're forgetting the Empire Strikes Back. That one went to many dark places and ended bitter sweet.

                          Great analysis, I'm agree. But I wouldn't have used the word 'Versus'

                              I think both trilogy’s are the same. The only difference is the characters.

                                  A proper detailed view of the new trilogy. He explains it very well, especially the real world similarities.

                                      I wonder when Star Wars will focus on communist concepts and how it to can be an evil empire.

                                              Quite Simply, irefutably. The "New Trilogy" lost the originals charm by way of romance. There is none. There is only mechanical desires / needs driving the films.

                                                Someone needs to tell this guy that Lucasfilm (and hundreds of people who worked with Lucas himself) still makes these movies, despite being owned by Disney. Also much of the prequels were shot on location so this idea that Abrams "went back to shooting on location" is misplaced. Research!

                                                  The Sequel Trilogy is "more complex"? Im sorry but how high are you? Rian Johnson used his FIRST DRAFT for God's sake.

                                                    The difference is the originals are better and Disney’s was a train wreck

Rogue one and Solo were okay, but they could have been legendary instead of mildly lukewarm. I am hopeful for what they've learned and what they'll do for Howards new trilogy & the Mandelorian.

Kylo Ren is not anywhere near to be an interesting villain, a well as Rey not being an interesting protagonist. Its not the actors, its not the character concepts its simply the script that is so incredibly dumb, that its funny by accident. Kylo Ren cannot be scary, or mysterious however much he frowns into the camera or throws temper tandrums. Rey has no "heros journey", everything she picks up, shes already perfect in. There is no room for growth and no suspense. The script is so dumb, that you dont even start to think about the whole picture and how to convert it to the real world (fascism etc.). The suspension of disbelief was gone after 5 minutes in Episode 8. I will not even start with the thousand abysmal attempts at humor in that episode, or the breaking of established rules in that universe, or the Mary Poppins scene, or the uninteresting supporting cast. Every single support role, whose names i already forgot, felt like being there just for the comic relief. 44% in rotten tomatoes cant be wrong... The new trilogy was so disappointing for me, that im not even going to the cinema anymore for episode 9.

                                                                                          It is a shame, that the trilogy is such a disaster, because i really liked rogue one and even liked solo, which propably wouldnt have gotten all the bad reviews if episode 8 hadnt been that bad imho....

                                                                                            Absolute master piece , Star Wars , Empire Strikes Back .
                                                                                            The prequels I love also. But for different reasons .
                                                                                            I liked. Force Awakens , but at the same time.
                                                                                            The Last Jedi. Just sucks .. Nothing much to say
                                                                                            Rogue One is the best New Star Wars film so far .
                                                                                            Solo had a good plot line .. But ridiculous droid and some scenes that were dark , literally to vague to see what was happening

                                                                                            • Claudeus Gothicus

                                                                                          • Harry Hudson

                                                                                            The new sequel is trash and rushed. The original trilogy has a lot of intriguing and deep subtext. Which you don't have to be a massive fan to know.
