A good thing happened this morning: I made my peace with Star Wars.

Ever since I saw The Force Awakens I have disliked what Disney has done to the Star Wars films. The Force Awakens leaned so heavily on the previous pictures that it became a work of plagiarism; the chief villain, Kylo Ren, was the weakest of his kind I have ever seen. The best thing about The Last Jedi is that it wasn’t (as bad as) The Force Awakens. The story was weak, Kylo Ren still poor – blah.

I disliked Force Awakens intensely; I felt numb towards The Last Jedi. This morning, I watched the last trailer for The Rise of Skywalker and felt – well, at peace; instead of being angry or critical, I thought to myself, You know what, this is not for me but I hope those who do go and see it enjoy it. I thought that to myself, and I meant it. I’ve come a long way, and I am relieved.
