Thanks all. I’ve seen 4 through 7 as well as 1 (that thing was weird af IMO). So I should be good to go then I believe. I still want to watch the rest of them. I start rogue one with little JM but he for some reason was convinced Luke was in it so he through a shitfit and we didn’t finish it.
You should watch Star Wars Rebels (animated) with your 5 yo. We watched Rebels as it aired with my family including my wife and we really enjoyed watching it. IMO it's absolutely fantastic.

A crazy thing is happening in weird corners of the Star Wars nerd internet...regarding a new growing dislike of Rogue One and even The Mandalorian.

There is a growing cult that thinks the prequel trilogy is the greatest thing in movie history, they do like the original trilogy to a lesser degree...but 100% of Disney era Star Wars is total garbage, not just the sequel trilogy but Rogue One and The Mandalorian too.

I talked with someone the other day whose opinion was that Episode 1-6 are all perfect, but Rogue One and Mandalorian suck. I can barely wrap my brain around it.

The animated series twist these people because it's so much prequel trilogy which is their reason for living...but now Mando is tying it into the "EVIL" Disney days.

It's basically everything Lucas is perfect, everything non-Lucas is trash.
I actually kind of thought Rogue One was a mess. It had good moments but never really got me to care about most of the characters.

But yeah, i've seen what you're talking about too. I think a lot of it is a generational gap. For a long time we had people who watched star wars in their younger age who panned the prequels when they watched it at an older age. Now we have a generation that watched the prequels at that younger age and theyre more appreciative of it.

The sequel trilogy is just a mess no matter which way you look at it because they had no comprehensive plan. No matter where you fall on each individual movie (I, for instance, happen to think TLJ was one of the best star wars movies), there's no denying that the trilogy was lacking a complete plan and that JJ abrams had some major issues.

Mandalorian made me finally go back and start watching clone wars, which im finding also helps redeem the prequel trilogy a bit (and also adds more evidence to the idea that maybe star wars's best future lies on television)

Anakin and Padme bored me to tears. Neither could act their way out of a wet paper bag. I'm a fan of Liam Neeson and Ewan MacGregor, and I feel like they were the saving graces of the prequel trilogy.
And I'm one of the half-dozen fools on the planet who actually LIKE Jar-Jar. He's just stupid enough to be funny.

I was a little kid when Return of the Jedi came out. Not a fan of the prequels. Not a fan of the sequel trilogy either. Didn't like the Clone Wars (tried to watch it with my kid). Did like Rebels however.

But I am a fan of Rogue One and The Mandalorian. Also didn't mind Solo.

I'm about the same, except got some Empire as a kid too. I was HARD CORE into original trilogy Star Wars during the long wait between the prequels and original trilogy. It was a time where even a kid with part time job money could buy every book, comic, trading card and collectible that came out because it was such a lull. There were some comics and novels in that period that probably weren't that great, but they were to me because of my age.

Aspects of the prequel trilogy have grown on me (still terribly flawed movies) and I never hated the animated clone wars, but this new expanding cult online that thinks 1-3 are the best of the entire Star Wars universe is baffling to me.

same on Rogue One. The first 30 minutes are just terrible moviemaking IMO. Redeems itself with K2SO and the Vader hallway.

Finished season 1 w/ little JM. Damn. I was entertained way more than I expected. Hopefully I’m not in the minority. That’s a good show. And what in the f***? Bill Burr???
