Hey LS - I spent some time talking with those who really know.. And
there is not a continuity error. You have to look closer and know the

clone wars material.

Yeah, I guess. There's some wiki pages out there that explain all that, so I've got it now. What happened with that character does seem a little ridiculous, and apparently following Star Wars *major* plot points has now become a full-time job, requiring encyclopedic knowledge...

Yeah. That's not ever going to be me. I enjoy the stories. But I have too many other things where I follow all the plot points and I don't see Star Wars being added to the list.

It's pretty simple: they're sacrificing quality for quantity (although even that is not exactly true if you include the prequel trilogy) for the anthology series, in the pursuit of a fast buck. There's already plans for a 4th trilogy, which apparently is going to be all Rian Johnson's baby. Disney will be cranking out a Star Wars movie every year from now until the end of time. First it'll cease to be special, and then it'll also cease to be Star Wars.

Wait, Rogue One already ceased to be Star Wars. Instead, it's Full Metal Jacket in space.

With the new cadence of a new film each year, it has ceased to be special, and with Disney, it has ceased to be Star Wars.

Comparing it to Full Metal Jacket gives it too much credit.  Go ahead, find *anyone* at Disney willing to attest in public that Han shot first.  Kubrick would have been fine with that.

I think they're fun movies and enjoy 'em. Maybe I'm just crazy that way. I think the criticism is just a little silly at times. They're movies!

<Sort of spolier alert> In Solo, Han most definitely shot first. I think it was a jab at Lucas.

Oh yes, I was screaming that in the theatre. He shot first! He shot first! ;)

Han Solo is a million times more alpha and awesome than, say, Harrison Ford.
