Yep... and this is why I say the damage is already done. And it is very sad but I lost all eager to see ep 9.
When ep 2 was released, I didnt like to movie (but enjoyed ep1. flawed but I enjoyed). But I still wanted to see ep3. I wanted to see how that story would end. But not with ep 9. And the movie about Han Solo? I dont even know when it will be released... dont care.
Seriously it's like Ep8 was trying to kill any remaining hype I had for Star Wars. Well they succeeded lol. It's like they took all the wonder and mysticism out of the lore. I truly felt bored and bummed out watching Ep8, the only entertainment I got was in anticipating how bad it was and yearning to find out if it was as lame as I had heard. It pretty much was..
I honestly have no desire of ever watching another Star Wars movie again after Ep8. The series is just not for me anymore.
