I realize that this new trilogy is to introduce new characters and wrap up the skywalker saga. I just feel like it's all been done in the wrong way. My opinion of course, but I feel like the new characters were introduced too quickly without bringing proper closure to the stories of the older characters. I didn't like the way Han was killed off in TFA, not arguing the fact he was killed, it just didn't seem like a fitting death for that character. I also felt that Carrie Fisher's character should have been resolved in episode 8, for obvious reasons. That was my initial thought when she was blasted out of the bridge into space, but that floating part back to the door was just ...awkward. Not to mention Poe just opened the door to wide open space to let her in. And Luke's artificial hand, I guess it faded away and became one with the force as well, instead of falling onto the ground like it should have.
As for the new characters, unlike the OT ones, I have no attachments or feel any sort of connection or fondness to them at all. I didn't think much of them when they were introduced in TFA, and now that TLJ has blatantly portrayed them in accordance with both Disney and Hollywood's cultural Marxist SJW feminist agenda, I have completely lost all interest in them. The main OT characters are gone now, and I have no interest in any of the future movies. Star Wars has been sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. After 40 years of watching every movie in theatres when it was released, I am now done with Star Wars. For me, it's dead.
I can understand your feelings about Han's demise. Sometimes death is swift, brutal and senseless, but yeah he was an iconic character and somehow it would have been more fitting for him to go down fighting. I also think, in light of Carrie Fishers death, it would have made *sense* for her to have perished in the bridge explosion. As you say there is now the issue of what happens in episode VIIII ? More CGI?
Personally I love the new characters; all of them. Rose is also a good addition to the new *crew*, I hope we get to see more of her in the next film.
Tbh I don't know what to make of your "Marxist SJW feminist agenda" comment....? You are unhappy about Rey being the central Jedi figure now? If so, did you feel the same way about Ahsoka Tano in Clone wars? A lot of women like Star Wars and it's good there are strong female characters to relate to in the films. It's also good that *slavery* is being portrayed correctly as something that needs to be challenged and fought against....perhaps you have a problem with that...? I'm not sure..just that , as I said, not understanding your comment.
It's a shame you are missing out on some great new additions to the Star Wars universe; it's very far from dead imo, but of course you are entitled to your pov.
