My Thoughts On Star Wars The Last Jedi

Star Wars has been around for a long ass time. I was born a year after Return of the Jedi came out, so I completely missed out on seeing the original version of the original trilogy in theaters. My first experience with Star Wars was when my Dad rented A New Hope (Episode IV) on VHS back when I was probably in Kindergarten. (I actually thought Darth Vader was Dark Vader at that time). I thought it was cool but I didn't follow the story and got bored with live-action stuff, since I grew up watching a crap ton of cartoons before school, after school, and on Saturday Mornings. Then a short while later, NBC broadcasted Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi and remember learning that Darth Vader was Luke Skywalkers father and I didn't believe it and I gotta kick out of the ewoks at the time since I saw the Ewok movies on the Disney channel shortly before seeing Jedi. Whats funny is Lucasfilm doesn't want to acknowledge the Ewok movies or the Holiday Special (which is total garbage but had a cool animated sequence introducing Boba Fett.) I saw them but they didn't leave that much of an impression on me at the time but what did I know, I was six years old and more interested in my nintendo games and cartoons.
