YOU'RE confused?? I'M confused why I want one thing from Rian Johnson and something totally not related from the GOT guys!! But I do. I can't really figure it out but I'm just being honest.
We will never get another OG Trilogy no matter what happens because its now nostalgic for us. The same movies can be released today and at our age, we'd most likely nit-pick it apart. Simply our age and experience has erased the chance of experiencing that kind of movie experience again. Its over. It was 3 and done and I'm thankful that it was 3 whole movies.
I’m extremely opinionated I know, but I just think what makes Star Wars what it was ... is often mistaken. I think you can make something feel like it used to with none of the familiar characters if you take that original idea— create a mythology. Commit to the Space Opera.
C'mon... who we kiddin'? Do you really think a universe as beloved as Star Wars could really "create a mythology" today that we (or you.... you can admit it) wouldn't try to pick apart? As kids we ate it up. That is one of the wonderful things about being kids! Today, in our old age we analyze and dissect and breakdown things to death. We've lost our gift of just accepting it, believing in it and riding with it. There will never be a "...make something feel like it used too..." for us. I love that you still believe it could happen but I think it's just setting you up for disappointment but I believe we are too old to "buy in" anymore.
This is why I don't want them to even try to recapture what it was for us. I want them to make Star Wars for adults in this current 2019 climate. Look, I feel like i'm a part owner of Star Wars because I grew up with it. I want it to grow up with me. So if its impossible to recapture the past, make something I can dig into at my 48 years of age. I want it to impact me as an adult to the same level that I was impacted as a child and remaking the OG Trilogy won't do it.
I hope this makes sense. I wrote it Stream of Consciousness style. Lol
PS- All I meant by "defined by the original series" is more like referencing planets, weapons, jargon, that was established in the OG Trilogy. Also, for fun I call the 70's SW flicks "OG Trilogy" meaning obviously "Original Gangsta' Trilogy". Just a term of endearment for those movies and me being goofy.
