    The Last Jedi.

    The most original and creative SW film since Empire.

    The arc of Luke was just perfect.
    The best dialogues and small details.

    A truly masterpiece.

    The trilogy turned out just fine.

    Yes.

    Abrams served as a Producer on all 3 of the Sequel Trilogy films, as did Kathleen Kennedy.

    That's subjective but I'm glad you enjoyed the trilogy overall, personally I found it disjointed which is why I would have preferred the same writer for all three films.

    He was executive producer on TLJ however I don't think he had much input or influence on Episode 8.

    Which means that he was very much involved in the production of that film.

    Per Wikipedia:
    The executive producer oversees all of the other producers working on the same project. They make sure that the producers are fulfilling their roles on the given production. They can also be in charge of managing the film's finances and handling all other business aspects of the film.


    You would be wrong.

    Both Abrams and Rian Johnson have spoken openly about the numerous and lengthy conversations they had with one another about The Last Jedi, with Abrams even having gone so far as to directly provide Johnson with feedback - in the form of notes - on the film's planned story.

    Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy were very much involved in the overall production of the entirety of the Sequel Trilogy even in the absence of a predefined narrative 'scope' for its individual installments building to a singular predetermined conclusion.

    TFA - there was the hope and nostalgia around the movie, the feeling that the story could go anywhere at the time, and just the overall joy it provided. It's not perfect, but it's a really fun movie with thrilling action and great new characters. I adore it.

    Also per Wikipedia:
    Executive producers vary in involvement, responsibility and power. Some executive producers have hands-on control over every aspect of production, some supervise the producers of a project, while others are involved in name only.

    The Truth is, you have no idea if I'm wrong or not.

    Also like me you really have no idea to the extent of JJ's involvement in TLJ. From what I've read, there was some initial collaboration when filming the end of TFA and perhaps JJ was asked to give feedback on TLJ script, but I very much doubt that JJ would have had any influence on TLJ script, RJ wrote the film he wanted to make.

    My bet would be that JJ would have been involved on an advisory basis when required rather than calling the shots along with Kathleen Kennedy.

    So back to my point on the trilogy, I would have preferred to have had the same writer/writers for all three films for a more coherent story, the disjointed feel to it is what let it down for me.

    You seem content with the trilogy, which is great, but we'll just have to agree to disagree.

    TLJ just ahead of TFA for me, although TROS has lowered my enjoyment of both.

    I have sympathy for what you're posting here, but I've chosen to vote for TFA because of it being the first SW movie in a theater, that I could watch together with my son :)

    TFA. That was probably the only time in the past 20+ years that it was fun to be a SW fan. I loved the movie, and it hit struck a cord with me that I hadn't felt since I was a kid from 77-83. I hated to see what happened to the fanbase after TLJ, Solo and TROS as it went back to the Prequel Era Civil War, but now it was on steroids with the social media. But for 2015-16, being a SW fan was fun again.

    I agree, from the build up to TFA to the build up to TLJ was the most exciting time in the Disney era for me!

    I do feel sorry for Solo though, I though it was a one of the better Star Wars films!

    TFA really captured the magic for me, being as it was the first Star Wars movie in a while.

    The Last Jedi was my favorite, by far. In my opinion, I’d rank them as follows:

    The Last Jedi > The Force Awakens > The Rise of Skywalker.

    For a long time, I thought The Force Awakens and The Rise of Skywalker were about equal, but The Rise of Skywalker is really the only film in the trilogy that I felt had a fairly significant number of things I would’ve changed and/or expanded upon. (If the rumors about Disney changing a large portion of the film behind J.J.’s back and limiting his creative control are true, then I understand why that’s the case.)

    That being said, I love all three of them, though. I have yet to actually dislike a Star Wars film.

    I voted The Rise of Skywalker. The Last Jedi just stinks (for a Star Wars movie), and although I really enjoyed The Force Awakens, it is simply too similar to A New Hope, and that takes away a lot for me. No originality to it. Therefore, The Rise of Skywalker it is. Also TROS had absolutely great visuals!

    TLJ has some really interesting themes and ideas, and Rian Johnson is a great filmmaker! But the Canto Bight stuff was a total misfire. The humour felt forced, like an MCU movie that keeps winking at the audience (Luke throwing the lightsaber over his shoulder like a Monty Python sketch and Poe making prank calls and yo momma jokes to Hux like Bart Simpson). I know its superficial, but the lack of Lightsaber-on-Lightersaber contact also left me feeling super unfulfilled and unsatisfied.

    All I really want from a Star Wars film is to be fun and emotionally satisfying. TROS might not be all that logical at times, but it smashed both these criteria for me. It hit me right in the feels and was a blast.

    But TFA just edges it for me. I was super apprehensive going in, as I didn’t wanna get too hyped (having been burnt before). As soon as Lor San Tekka said “this will begin to make things right”, I knew everything was going to be okay. TFA made me feel like a little kid watching A New Hope for the first time again. For me it was a perfect blend of new and familiar. I went to see what happened to Luke, Han and Leia and came out desperate to know who Rey was, why Kylo turned and what the deal with Snoke was!

    The Force Awakens was definitely the best out of the three. I think we can all agree that The Last Jedi was probably the worst movie they've ever put out. But The Force Awakens introduces a new era of Star Wars and new characters. And they did it successfully.

    If by “they” you mean Lucasfilm, I disagreed. Some Star Wars fans haven’t seen Caravan of Courage...and it shows ;)

    TFA is the best for me. The main problem with TLJ in my mind is some continuity errors, mainly being the holdo manuever. Also the canto bight scene served no purpose. The last act was awesome though. And for ROS, they controlled the humor a little bit better than TLJ. BABU FRIK!
