“Do or do not, there is no try”
The greatest sequel ever made. Incredible world building with awesome new characters, worlds, technology, etc. I love that this film gives the audience the feeling that the main characters relationships have really grown in between movies. Since we are 40 years removed from the twist, I think people forgot how shocking it is... probably the best twist ever? This is also maybe the ballsiest sequel ever? They took some huge risks in this, front load all the action, and have our heroes straight up lose? I really admire that and I think that’s a big part of what makes this the best Star Wars film. Everything about this is just perfect.
