    I know that we have a thread about parallels and scenes that rhymes like poetry in TROS section. But we don't have one (at least I didn't find it) about parallels over all of the movies. So I'm creating one.
    Please post here all images that you think "it rhymes like poetry".

    I will start with this one:

    In the third movies of the first two trilogies, some main characters become generals off screen. In ROTJ, Han and Lando get promoted to general, and in ROTS, Obi Wan becomes a general. Also, new general characters are introduced, such as General Madine and General Grievous. This seems to reflect a change in the conflict, from aristocrats and nobles to military leaders. COUNT Dooku dies to be replaced with GENERAL Grievous. While Leia becomes a general only in TFA, her title is still waning from a princess following her active role in the Imperial Conflict. Other sudden generals include Jar Jar, Bombad General and all the generals that vader makes after he kills all his old ones. The only movie that stops this trend is TLJ, when Poe is demoted, indicating the revolutionary nature of the film, and its difference from the other movies of the saga.

    I would leave Luke out of it and then it would be much more poetic. With Luke it's just visually, but without him it's poetry in context of visuals, chronology and story.

    This may not be what's wanted, but Voordeel's video "Timelines" uses some of the cinematic and narrative parallels of Episodes 1-7 to great effect.
