I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about Star Wars this past week, and something I’d never given George Lucas credit for was having a sense of narrative throughout the prequel trilogy. I mean, as bars go, that’s pretty low yet here we are.
I agree with Houston’s argument in this video: the actual story of the Jedi is that of failure, and The Last Jedi does a fantastic job in finally addressing it. In fairness, Dave Filoni has made a similar commentary in The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.
After watching this video, I’m seeing the prequels in a whole new light.
